We were 4 ppl staying for 5 nights. Everything was just perfect: the house inside, interior, location and finally the price comparing to what diani offers. The staff was extremely friendly! Bruno made us perfect breakfasts and dinners) Air con worked very well and we always had hot water.

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

We stayed in the Firimbi Cottage (2 Bedroom) and had a great time. Both inside and the outdoor area was really nice. The beach is reasonably close by. The chef and house keeper were great. The Manager was also really really helpful.

Kitu kidogo is a Beautiful place (really nice!) just 5 minutes walking from the beach. The bed is nice, the toilet, the kitchen and the terrace are lovely... The garden is also beautiful but we found big bugs in the room so we would recommend to isolate the door and windows to prevent this issue since it is unconfortable... AC... More

Spent quite a lot of time, especially in the evenings, on the porch. The meals we had was also in the dining area on the porch. Two nights... More

Stayed with my partner and our daughter (14 months) at the smaller cottage at Kitu Kidogo for two weeks in march 2014. We absolutely loved it! The cottage is nicely decorated inside out, well maintaned, and the porch facing the ocean breeze is a really good place to hang out, especially for our daughter.
