A little bit harder to find, but lovely apartments for affordable price. Although there is no board offered, you can book a chef for your stay here and reliable people offering fresh fish and fruit / vegetables. Many wonderful restaurants nearby along the beach and clean white sand beach just meters from your verandah. Be aware there is no wifi... More

I originally booked my hotel stay with another cottage on Booking.com; everything fell through and there was a scam involved. After walking down the beach I found this little gem and was greeted warmly by the staff. They were quick to help us become destressed and get the group of 5 into a room settled down and finally enjoy our... More

Most places that are beach front are super expensive, but this treasure was just the thing for our budget. The shady lawn is an amazing place to sit and read with the breeze off the Indian Ocean. Many of the cottages/rooms have beach view porches. You are able to cook for yourself in the little kitchenette, which is great for... More

Daini Beachalets are one of the hidden secrets of Diani Beach Mombassa. While simple they have a charm of a time that has passed. If you need a place away from the usual tourist trade then this is the place to be. The Owners and Staff could not have been more helpful. The accommodation while simple was adequate and that...

My family had a great time at Diani Beachalets this Easter. It's literally a few steps from a beautiful and very quiet beach. Excellent spot for kids and for the flexibility to explore further. We definitely plan to visit again.

My husband and I can't wait to visit again. We spent a long weekend in a garden-facing one-bedroom suite. The location is perfect, situated right on the beach and a bit down from the center of the action (and beach boys). The suite was very spacious, with a balcony that was a lovely place to relax, read, and eat meals.... More

Very affordable and great beachfront location. Our room was much bigger than expected and was exceptionally clean. Friendly owners and guards made us feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this place to a friend!

I am scared to tell people of this amazing retreat - incredible value for money, John and Rhoda are both supportive and laid back at the same time. Beach and sea on your doorstep. Lots of lovely places around to eat. Please make sure that you don't all book and stop me getting a booking when I go back!!

Stayed for one night in October and i wish i could have stayed longer. The cottages are basic (self contained with a kitchenette) but very clean. They are right on the beach so we spent most of our time there either on the beach or in the garden overlooking the beach. The owner and the staff are super friendly and... More
