You couldn't find a nicer spot in Kenya for a quiet beach holiday. I woke up in a four poster bed looking onto the Indian Ocean. It is complete peace and quiet. These are beautiful cottages with history, not a fake-feeling resort. They are literally in a garden on the beach so the sea is spread right out in front of you. The staff will spoil you with mouthwatering fresh seafood or cook anything you want. You can even buy fresh oysters to have with fresh lime juice. Best of all it has a classic unspoilt beach shack restaurant next door so you don't have to put your flipflops on for your entire stay. You can have a cheap massage or pedicure on the veranda. Hilary the owner has always been here, knows Kenya inside out, and makes you feel very welcome. You can even get clothes made from beautiful Indian cotton in the little supermarket at the end of the track. Thoroughly recommend Four Twenty.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Four Twenty South comprises six colonial cottages surrounded by three acres of beautiful tropical gardens bordered by an unspoilt dazzling white beach lapped by the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean. The houses are right on the sea overlooking a sandy lagoon where swimming is safe at any tide and a breeze gently cools the heat of the day. ... more less
