Such a very nice and warm place te stay. Not only for a few days, but also a (much) longer stay is very attractive. Why? Because it feels like home when you once met Wendy, the owner of this place. The rooms are big, you have your own bathroom, and the breakfast is a every morning delight with fresh fruit... More

This is the best B&B in Kilifi lovely accommodations, great food, and interesting chats with the owner. The property is located along the creek and has the best view of the creek and a nice beach. There are many old trees on the property as well which gives it an authentic charme.I really enjoyed my 2 nights staying there.

On my evaluation tour of an NGO program, I stayed two nights at Wendy's B&B. I couldn't have found a nicer place for reflecting and Relaxing. I was enjoying charming talks, excellent service and a beautyful environment. My visit was definitely too short, but I will not forget the fantastic view to the creek.

Coming to Kilifi for a Research internship at KEMRI on the tail end of the FCO travel warnings I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised with Kilifi and Wendy's B&B. For the price, what you get is brilliant - Hot and varied breakfast, good company, laundry, and amazing views over the creek. Wendy herself is amazing and if you are... More

Wendy's place 'What Next' is a fantastic place overlooking Kilifi Creek. Wendy is a perfect host. For her and her wonderful staff, nothing is too much trouble, beds are comfortable, showers are hot, breakfasts are delicious, views are spectacular. I stayed at What Next for just 2 nights. I should have stayed much longer. I'm not a dog lover, but... More

Didn't want a big 'touristy' hotel as we headed back down the North Coast en route to Mombasa and home. Wendy and her delightful staff were helpful and fun from the first phone call. What Next is Wendy's home and we felt like house guests from the minute we arrived. Beautifully furnished, lots of areas to relax in, books and... More

I have stayed here several times over the last few years, as my daughter lives in Kilifi. The rooms are comfortable, lovely with private baths and plenty of hot water. The setting is beautiful. The veranda faces Kilifi Creek and there is nothing better than watching the spectacular sunsets. As I lay in bed at night, I hear the galagos... More

I have now stayed at this wonderful property on two occasions and am certain to return as the mother of a UK citizen who now lives nearby. Wendy makes all who stay with her most welcome and there is a "house party" ambience. Her staff are most attentive and both they and Wendy will do all they can to help... More

Wendy's home, What Next, is a lovely, airy house set in beautiful private gardens overlooking Kilifi Creek. The rooms are all private, en-suite and well kept but the real magic of a stay here is the chance to have a good old natter with Wendy! Wendy is a qualified safari guide, a font of general and local knowledge and can tell you everything you need to know and more. Her hospitality and sense of fun is what makes a stay at What Next truly memorable. Perfect for anyone looking to have the comforts of a home stay, whether for a night or a month.
