Overview
Cottage -
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
Diani Beach, Ukunda, Coast Province
Four Twenty South is arguably the best location on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. In tropical gardens which run down to the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean nestle 6 beach houses, discretely spaced and screened from each other by foliage. Each house is staffed with chef and housekeeper and fresh seafood, seasonal fruit and vegetables are brought to the door. The owners live on the property which has been in the family since the 1960s. <BR>

Although it was hotter than I usually like, it was amazing as even when the tide is out, there is still one of nature's most awesome swimming pools!

We had two nights here in a sewer little cottage. Really loved the rooms and the terrace. Friends who popped over couldn't believe how nice it was :) everything was clean and fresh and the maids were good. The cook was nice, although she did steal the sugar provided for guests! Excellent pick up and drop off at the airstrip....

The self catering cottages are simple but beautiful and tastefully decorated. The gardens are peaceful with stunning plants and a green lawn leading to the beach which is framed by a few palm trees. The beach would be hard to beat anywhere in the world! Fresh sea food brought to your back door daily and cooks that know how to...
