Excellent huge property with beach volleyball and boule playground. 6 bedrooms house. The staff are the best you can get and the chef made us seafood every day as we asked for. Lobster, crabs, squid, calamares and different fish. Nice beach for walks in a very friendly neighbourhood. Take a walk on the beach north and walk througt the village to the local shopping area close to the hospital. We will definately be back very soon! I see from the other questions asked by tripadviser that they think this is a hotel. You have to book the whole house, then you can use it as your hotel.

Thanks to this wonderful place and staff, we had the best time between the palms at the garden beach paradise only 25 minutes away from Diani. From here you can book day trips, safaris or just let you relax by the pool or beach. We got served tasty food and the service was excellent done by the friendly staff.
The garden, poolside and are are so amazing beautiful. The room was nice and clean.
I Recommend this lovely place. It's possible to rent the hole house (12 pax) if u need more than a room. They provide different dining areas at the cliff, bonfire, outside pizza Owen, huge garden and a lovely tropical feeling !!!

We spent 9 days in this breathtaking place. No matter how many pictures you look at, they can't really give the place justice at all. It is huge, beautiful and amazing.

What makes this place really special, is the staff. They made our stay perfect. Everything was taken care of in a really smooth way, and you can tell that they have a lot of experience. Omari organized our safari, and on safari departure day the chef made us a really early breakfast. When we came back he greeted us with fresh juice. They always adapted to our needs and did way more than we had expected. You could also tell the communicated very well.

We spent days buy the pool, and Mohammed made sure we got refreshments. And the guard was making sure we felt safe. And the food was so good! We had fresh fruits every day, Katana really knew what he was doing.

The monkeys, peacocks, turtle and of course Dolly made the garden an exciting place, there is always something happening.

The distance to the ocean is as short as it can be, and around 4-5 pm it's perfect to go for a swim. Also, we walked to the village one day, took us about half an hour each way.

Omari also organized a safe airport transfer for us, which we appreciated.

All in all, this is a place I can absolutely recommend. The service is beyond what you can dream of, and the Kaskazi house is perfect in so many ways.

Just for practical reasons: no wifi, water pressure is best in the late evening, remember to but some tip in the "tip box" in the living room, no air-conditioning

What a treat! Our expectationes were high and we were not disappointed. From the very first moment when we were welcomed by owners and staff, we felt like"special" guests, but also like friends. Our room nr.1 was beautiful and spacious. The food was excellent and always served outside with a magnificent view of garden,pool,beach and ocean.The morning swim in the ocean and in the pool , the following pre-breakfast coffee in the shade-heaven on earth! We very much appriciated the owners and staffs introduction to local, Kenyan and African culture . The visits to school,village,Sunday marked etc.is something that will stay in our mind for a long time.The visit to the slave-cave was also a learning experience. We also spent 4 nights at Saruni Lodge in Masai Mara -fantastic! Then back to Kaskazi for another great week. After a winter-week in Norway we are surely longing back!

Nairobi, Kenya1 contribution1 helpful vote
Outrageous - This is, by far, the most ridiculous hotel experience I ever had in Kenya! I spend my new years vacation (2013) here with my wife and my mum, and we surely won’t be coming back. Don't expect to be treated as a guest at Kazkazi, but as a prisoner, and for this you will pay 220 USD per person/night (per person not per room!)

Upon arrival, during a 30 minutes monologue, the owners kept us longing for our rooms and some level of privacy, as they were busy informing us how wonderful their place is and how nicely they engage with their staff and local communities. Having finally been allowed to settle in our rooms, the owner informed us of his plans for our new year's eve, which included a “private” dinner with the Norwegian couple that owns the place and a (friendly) family of four (the only other visitors at the time), after which we were to drink a glass of champagne by the beach. This all sounds good, had it not been because it wasn't by choice! We had planned to head south to Diani (20 km from Kaskazi) to meet some friends at a beach party after dinner, but quite simply the Norwegian owner prohibited us from leaving his premises, saying that he was not willing to pay ransom when we would be car-jacked! I have lived in Kenya for more than 3 years, and while there are serious problems with crime in Nairobi and other places, the risk of being car-jacked in Diani is only real to someone affected by fencing himself inside a remote beach house. In effect, we were forced to hang out with the owners all night. This wouldn't have such a disaster had they been a friendly and accommodating couple. But they are not. Especially the husband constantly portrays himself as "the Kenyan expert" - including attempting to lecture my wife, who is born and raised in Kenya, how the country works. He expects all guests to listen and agree with his colonial-style narratives; if not, it will be perceived betrayal of his “hospitality” and you will be treated accordingly.

Even worse, don’t expect that the owners will stick to what has been agreed upon booking: We were informed by email ahead of confirmation that free transport to Diani was included in the price. However, when on the night before leaving I asked how we were to utilize that part of the package, we were told that there was no car available for us since the owners would be using it going on a full-day trip with the other family staying at Kazkazi and that, in any event, the free transport to Diani deal was not applicable to us since we were not flying out of Diani. In other words, the owners would be busy using the car that according to a written agreement should have been used for our transport, and the car may only be used by guests who fly out of Diani, not those who may wish to be taken to Diani and have other travel arrangements from there!!!! This essentially meant we were trapped at their premises, having to bet on a local taxi from Diani being able to find the remote property (fortunately, the taxi driver eventually did so)!

There are many other examples of the outrageous treatment we received at Kazkazi, but one deserves mentioning: My bank had by mistake transferred an additional 440 USD to the actual costs. Prior to arriving, I had accepted the owners’ proposal that they would refund the amount in cash when I got there, rather than doing a bank transfer back to my account. As I asked for the refund on our last night (and thus the last time we would see the owners before they were going on their trip), I was first informed that this was “not their issue”, but that I should speak to one of their staff. I did so, and he told me that he would go get the cash, but he never returned with the cash. Instead the owners came to see us during dinner, and told me that since they were the ones who had first discovered the higher payment, I shouldn’t start believing that I could have them refunded when I asked for it!!! At this point, I honestly had enough of their ridiculousness, and told them to leave us alone for the remaining of the night. While the staff ultimately did make the refund the next morning, it was self-evidently a very unpleasant experience to have my money withheld.

To be fair, the rooms, gardens and pool area are all nice, but all of that doesn't really matter when you are constantly being monitored and ordered to comply with the bizarre orders of the owners.

Stay at Kazkazi if you are happy being treated as a prisoner, not if you are looking for a place where you are actually treated as a guest.

Response from 09876t, Manager at Kaskazi Beach House
Responded 15 Jan 2014
Dear Reader Thank you for taking your time to read this response. The comments from Mr. Hansen is the first negative review we ever have received. Please read the other 17 top rated reviews. they speak for themselves. Just for your information: Expensive ? Our small hotel is situated in a rural area , on an un- spoilt beach approx. 22 km. from Diani. Our concept is "all inclusive " and we gave Mr. Hansen favorable residence rates, USD220.- per person per night. This includes all meals, snacks,full room and laundry service, shuttle transport to and from Ukunda Airstrip, free beverage also beer, wine and spirits ( which may Mr. Hansen's behavior.) New years eve we served soup, lobster, dessert and all beverage requested. Later we had bonfire at the beach with sparkling wine. No additional charges. We were approx 20 persons greeting the New Year together. Transport/prison ? New Year before midnight Mr. Hansen demanded to be transported to Diani to join a beach party. We, knowing his condition and the possible dangers on this particular night did, as responsible hoteliers , not recommend him to travel. Neither did we facilitate a taxi. He dropped it and had a swim with his wife in our floodlighted pool. Return of money. We had previously informed him that he had paid too much. After having covered the taxi from Mombasa to Kaskazi, accommodation for the unexpected arrival of his wife, there remained a balance of USD 110.- The night before his departure he demanded the immediate payment in cash . Knowing his temperament and condition we wanted to make sure everything was in order before he left. As promised he was paid USD 110.- in cash upon departure as promised. As for all the personal characteristics in his review we choose not to comment on them. We thank you for your understanding. Best regards Eilif Torma, Chairman.
