We ,group of 11 adults stayed in Eurika villas for 8 nights . Overall we left place satisfied.Villa located in secure gated compound called Msitu Kvetu. Entrance to compound through guarded gates with 2 guys security 24/7 which is nice and you feel absolutely safe. Location is on a quiet side of Diani, Closest big supermarket is about 10 min ride with tuk tuk. Beautiful beach is about 10 min walk away. Villa itself is OK. Nice and warm swimming pool. Main villa building has larger rooms and better quality and comfort beds.Every morning 2 villa caretaker comes in and they take care of cleaning swimming pool, bedrooms and bathrooms. By recommendation of owner we paid extra for chef service and i can highly recommend it as the lady who cooked breakfasts and dinners for us was amazing, she cooked for us anything we ordered, we just paid extra for her service and obviously for products she bought. Where it needs improvements its bathrooms, water pressure supply in showers is bad . Every bedroom have fans , all beds have insect nets. Every morning we have monkeys coming in and playing in our garden or even coming inside house if you leave door open, but they are very friendly and not aggressive.We had few issues while staying there but all were quickly sorted out with contact to the owner.Oner was responding very quickly when we contacted her.Overall we were satisfied with staying in a villa but if i m coming back to Diani i would like to stay in a different place.
Enjoyed the quiet location.Ambience is great. My children and I enjoyed the swimming pool so much.Position an outdoor light to enable one swim at night.Lydia and Caro took care of us well.Place is close to beach which gives one a chance to walk around.The plumbing though needs repair.A tv is a good piece.
It was such an amazing place to spend a family holiday.We were warmly welcomed by the house keeper Lydia and found the house so clean.We had such nice meals prepared by Carol.My kids had alot of fun at the swimming pool.Very quiet place cool for family holiday.Thanks to Marianne
The villa is beautiful and even though it’s not a beach front property, the beach is not too far away. My husband and I stayed here with our 3 small children (6,4&1 y.o). Unfortunately we didn’t find villa too child friendly. Other than playing in the pool there wasn’t much of a yard for the children to run around in and there were a number of hazards we had to be mindful, like the fact that my 1yr old could easily go through the railing on the upstairs balcony. So this isn’t a place I would recommend if you have very small children, but would be more suitable with older children.
Even though the listing states wifi as being part of the amenities, it is quite misleading as there’s no wifi in this facility. They have a wifi modem from Orange that you can buy data for and use. This is mobile data you’d have to buy. We brought our iPad hoping we could watch movies with the kids in the evenings, had we known there would not be wifi we would’ve downloaded movies before arriving. When I expressed my disappointment at the lack of wifi, the owner tried to remedy situation by buying us 1gb of data for $2.50. Although we appreciated the gesture, it did very little remedy the situation.
There is one more thing, I want to mention and I hesitate to mention this because I understand the repercussions can be severe for the owner. However like many of you reading this, I rely heavily on online reviews and it would be very remiss of me not to mention this. While we were at the villa, we found one dead bedbug. We searched carefully and didn’t find another. We had no issue while we were there. When we came home, we found a single bed bug on our child’s bed and decided to have the entire house fumigated. We’ve never had bedbugs before and in all likelyhood we picked it up from the villa.
I’m writing this review after more than a week. I’ve given it a lot of thought and hope it’s helpful to all.
We were a family of 10 (2 kids). We lived in 2 houses on the territory of villa. There was a big swimming pool and lawn. All the week we spent was so wonderful. Our chef Caro cooked so tasty food (highly recommended to use her services), Lidia clean up the rooms daily. The beach is very close with its white-white sand and the ocean! There are some low tides in the mornings. But we come at 2-3 pm to the beach and the ocean was close and so beautiful!
Thanks a lot to Marianne who regulary answered my questions and always was in touch!
All our family is so thankful to all staff! You made our vacation so warm and relaxing!
We were amazed by the place and we spent a relaxant time by the pool and delicious breakfasts and meals cooked by Caro. The team is discrete and helpful.
We also liked the close access to the beach and shopping areas.
It was so beautiful...serene...amazing.We stayed over with the family and we really loved it. The professional staff went beyond their call of duty to make our stay memorable...
