My bf and i had a fantastic time at this lovely beach resort between 31st Dec and 3rd Jan 2015. With direct access to the beach, the views are amazing. The hotel has very few cottages and therefore, though all rooms were occupied during this period, it was still not crowded offering the much needed privacy for people who just... More

We were a group of seven, 3 couples and a brother. We stayed for 3 nights and the service was great, very friendly staff. The rooms were basic yet comfortable. The accommodation needs some tlc, particularly the bathroom but the pool, beach access and relaxed atmosphere made up for this. Small problems were quickly sorted out by Wilfred and his... More

Me and my girl have been in paradise for a week. The place as the rest of the south kenyan coast is wonderful,but stay here was an extra value. The "Holyday retreat" is intimate and cozy,surrounded by a luxuriant tropical nature,and only with 8 rooms gives you a personal exclusive feeling.... As customized is the service.....total free from haste....you can... More

We booked some clients on two different occasions last year and their response was very positive. One couple who were there for their honeymoon said the services were exemplary good and that it exceeded their expectations. We therefore cannot hesitate recommending more clients to this facility.

Kinondo Poa is an amazing value for money: a beautiful landscaped garden with nice cottages a few meters from the beach. With its price, it is a steal: Kinondo Kwetu is literally next door, and while it is markedly more upscale, it costs almost 4 times more and opens up on the same beach. The beach is lovely and deserted,... More

we stayed five nights in November. Ultimate peace and quiet, located 100ms from the beach a walk down the path you will see colobus and vervet mokeys in the trees above to a beach with only local fisherman and the occasional tourist or villa owner about 1 km of untouched beach( no beach boys). Loungers are brought to the beach... More

If you like to be among the hustle and bustle of it all then you can stop reading now as this fine place will be of no great interest to you. If, on the other hand you like to be pampered far from the madding crowd in a quiet location, then perhaps this might be for you. The owner Hannes... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in December, but we wished we could have stayed longer. After traveling for 1,5 weeks in Kenya, we wanted to relax a bit, before we continued our journey to Tanzania. This is the perfect place to relax! It is peacefull and quiet. The rooms are spacious and clean, a nice shower, a water cooler... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for the first two weeks of December, had an 8 day safari and then came back for another week (because we enjoyed the first two weeks so much). The location is excellent (as long as you are looking for R&R rather than nightlife) and we frequently had the beach to ourselves. There are also... More
