What a special place this is. We stayed in the two bedroom cottage and the air conditioning was a godsend as it has been very hot at this time of the year. I have been thinking of building my own property on the coast and this ticked every box. The build and furnishings were all very nice quality. The cottages... More

If there is an option of giving 6 stars, we would have done that! The cottage is superb in a few aspects: - Decoration and design: The cottage is a standalone house with beautiful designs. The wall paintings, the sofa table, and the washroom are well decorated. Not to mention the cottage comes with a private garden! The starry night... More

The house is beautiful! Fully equipped and only a 5 minute walk to a perfect white-sand beach. The supermarket is a 10 minute walk, but you can also take a tuktuk or a bodaboda. It was great to eat in the house and let Bruno, the chef, prepare the most delicious fish/prawns/lobster! We will definitely recommend this place!

We stayed here for two nights and our only regret was we didn't stay longer. Beautiful, peaceful and serene surroundings. Our cottage contained absolutely everything we needed. A perfect place to get away and unwind.

The place is very well located, not far from everything (beach, shops, restaurants, etc) The house is very pretty, comfortable and well furnished. The garden is very pleasant. We were welcomed nicely and friendly by Edith and Bruno. Bruno cooked fresh sea food... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kitu Kidogo is an exclusive holiday retreat tucked away in a coastal indigenous forest that has been around for centuries. It comprises of two beautiful cottages made out of coral, sandstone and wood showing off the various textures of the ancient Swahili coastline. Each cottage is dressed with intricately hand carved Lamu furniture, Rajhastani and South African soft furnishings and Afghani and Ethiopian wool Rugs. The walls reflect our travels around the globe. Each wall piece has been carefully selected to fit in with the theme of the cottage giving the spaces an exotic but at the same time a harmonious look. The palm lamp shades highlight the beauty of each piece with its soft glow. What the cottage evokes is memories of the old Africa influenced by the spice trade route! Kitu Kidogo is ideal for families, groups and couples. If you are looking for comfort, style, privacy and personalized service then this is the perfect holiday home for you! ... more   less
