My fourth time in Sandisland Beach Cottages was absolutely paradise like as the last three times and even better. The self contained makuti roofed cottages, with inbuilt natural air conditioning, are as close to the beach as possible. The sea with a coral garden in swimming distance provides easy access to snorkeling, and provides the fresh seafood as one wishes...
Wireless network allows to stay in touch with the rest of the world. The little shop, daily cleaning service and passing by fishermen make self catering as easy as it gets.
The managers are great hosts and very helpful, if anything is needed or a trip to be organized.
The three dogs are as laid back as the place itself. Life there, is turning into bliss: swimming, watching the colors of the water change with tides coming and going, and musing - undisturbed Kenyan peponi. One wishes time would stand still for a bit longer than a week.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Sand Island Beach is comprised of ten fully self contained cottages - which sleep between 2 and eight depending on which one you take - on a pristine piece of Kenya's south coast. It's geography offers guests something unique: a private beach within easy proximity of shops and restaurants. Set in acres of orchard and indigenous coastal forest and just meters from the beach, there is a real sense of space and peace. We will arrange airport transfers, assist with shopping and offer advice on local attractions and adventures. We pride ourselves on our hosting and our extraordinary location. ... more less
