My boyfriend and I were lucky to get a cottage for one night as we arrived without a reservation, and we were very well received by Amina and Faisal. The cottage was spatious, tastefully decorated, and surprisingly comfortable considering the living conditions on the island (no electricity or running water). The food was amazing and the setting just idyllic. This is a perfect getaway for a long weekend for people living in Nairobi or Mombasa, and a great stop on the coast for tourists wishing to escape the sometimes chaotic coastal cities. I really wish we could have stayed longer, unfortunately we had reached the end of our vacation.
