This place is clean and quiet. They are a couple of self-catering villas but you can talk to the owner to get you a local chef who can make your meals for about $10 a day depending on your bargaining power.
The place is approximately 20km from Mombasa town and 3 km from Diani Shopping complex. A short rough-road stretch will lead you to the villas.
For security, the guards ask for you to call them when you are at Diani so that they can open the gate for you so you don't sit outside for long waiting for the gate to be opened.
The facility is "landlocked"; that is it is not on a beach plot. But don't let that deter you since they have a big and warm swimming pool. Besides the beach is about 200m on the other side of the road and is publically accessible on foot.
One thing they need to invest in is a fresh-water system. The swimming pool is salty (but not as salty as sea-water) and so is the tap and shower water.
A couple of supermarkets are within 3 km radius so you should not be so worried about running out of supplies
