Monkey beach house is in a very good location walking distance to the beautiful beach. The rooms are quite spacious and are kept clean during the period of stay. It is also very quiet and relaxing. There are other properties/houses on the same location but lucky for us who weren't aware of this, it was not very full and so we were able to relax. The cook was decent but perhaps there is room for improvement.

“Superb, Wonderful ,the most Stunning House on the Beach”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My hubby,David,and I had family visiting from the US. We had a terrific safari in the Mara, rambled around Nairobi and environs and ended the trip with a week's stay at the Monkey Beach House.
The house is Large and we were 10 pax and it accommodated us very comfortably. The location is really beautiful, away from the other hotels so the beach is quite and sparsely populated. We had long lovely walks, especially early in the morning and evening. Lots of shells. We read , lounged,snorkled,swam and decompressed. My hubby and I live in Nairobi, so appreciated the slow pace , the secure feeling as we had here, and the sense of being very far away from our day to day life. We all hated to leave. Highly recommend the Monkey house to anyone looking for a beach holiday that's fun filled, secure and luxurious and not so much of a pinch in your pocket.i cant wait to be back.

Travelled with mine and 3 other families to Monkey Beach House and spent the last 4 days unwinding, swimming and walking up and down the beach. Splendid. We were a group of total 13 persons (8 adults and 5 kids) and though we were a bit nervous whether the place will be crowded, it was not. The house has 5 bedrooms and many sitting areas. We just enjoyed hanging around the place. We had barbecue one night outside. Kids loved the pool and adults found the excuse of 'lets help them swim' to also spend enormous amounts of time in the water. The beach in front was excellent- no debris, loads of beach bums etc. Housekeeper was good and the cooks did a fairly ok job for our Indian palettes (we had to make sure the instructions were precise and clear). Some friends from the group also helped out a bit in the cooking as well. Parking for vehicles could be a better organised- we had one of the long term tenants in a nearby property complaining (not so nicely). There is space for parking, it just needs some organising and clear instructing by the management. There are other properties within the same compound and we had 3-4 other small groups also around. Nice place and we look forward to going back.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed March 14, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had an incredible 2 week stay at Monkey beach house with our two young boys. Everything from the accommodation and the location through to the friendliness of the staff was exceptional and will certainly be remembered as on of the best holidays we have ever been on.
If you are thinking about going to Kenya but are frightened of the reports of 'Africa' generally in the media, please reconsider. We have never felt safer and the people are the friendliest and most helpful that we have ever come across in many years of travelling and we cant wait to go back. (the gardeners even managed to track down a monkey that had stolen our older son's favorite teddy bear and get it back!)
However, bear in mind that it is Africa and do not expect to have high speed internet 24 hours a day, see the occasional power cut as a romantic interlude and for the feint hearted, consider flying directly to Diani Beach from Nairobi rather that braving the cab ride through Mombassa which though very interesting and a great way to see how Africa works, can be a little off putting.

We stayed at Monkey Beach for four days with 9 people and one toddler over the New Year. It was truly an amazing experience and I cannot say enough wonderful things about the villa. First, all of the rooms were spotless, airy and beautifully decorated. The chef Hussain, prepared wonderful fresh meals every day. Anne, the housekeeper doubled as a nanny for an extra fee, and was both professional and kind with my toddler.
The location is truly spectacular with only steps to the beach, which was not crowded, and lovely pool in front of the villa. Truly paradise!

Wonderful, large airy house. Very comfortable and nicely decorated. Plenty of space for 2 or 3 families. Lovely cook and housekeeper. Great view of ocean. Shared pool right in front of house.

“A thoroughly fantastic experience”
Reviewed October 23, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We were fortunate enough to spend five days in September at Monkey Beach House, and we have to say it was absolutely brilliant place to be. Situated just a few meters from the ocean,and complete with a cook (who made great food and also went shopping for us) and a housekeeper, the whole package really made us feel like we were in a paradise. The house was absolutely massive (we could have slept in a different room every night) and comfortable (pictures are not lying).

And because of the amount of tourists being really low at the moment due to terrorism threat (we spent a total of around 10 days in Kenya and did not feel unsafe for a second, besides the area security is very good) you really could get a bargain of a lifetime. And I do not think you can very often have a beautiful ocean beach almost for yourself. On busier times, the place should also be ideal for people looking for a party. We cannot recommend this place enough.
