This is a hidden jewel away from the tourist track and with a personal atmosphere that we appreciated very much. The staff, the manager and the owners were all there to make our stay perfect, and eager to introduce us to the culture, the community and to the interesting history of the spot. We did not quite know what to expect when arriving Kaskazi, but had this been an international high class resort not identifying the personality and the African nature, we would have been disappointed. We felt the exclusiveness of almost being personal guests in this astonishing garden... of Eden, just by the sea. Beautiful art, beautiful flowers, fantastic food, drinks and service and last but not the least - the friendliest and smiliest staff. This hotel must be experienced!

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)

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.

A typical pre-morning at Kaskazihouse starts with swimming in the pool before served delicious Kenyan coffee, facing the sunrise over the Indian Ocean or all the arts, birds and monkeys in the lovely garden! Could it be a better start of a new day? Kaskazi house has an unique atmosphere and a great hospitality. Harriet and Eilif have open their home, far away from the tourist places, for guests They have a small but great staff. The owners shared their knowledge with us and we learned a lot!Listen to them, they have experience, after many years in Africa! They have several suggestions for activities, and we choose bicycle safari to the village near by, visit a school and sailing in a local sailboat(made of one large trunk of wood) an a local market! I deeply recommend a stay

The small and personal Kaskazi house is a paradise, with the lovely white main building surrounded by the blooming garden by the beach and a fine art collection. The staff is very service minded and friendly, and the food is delicious! We stayed a week and would like to go back! We can warmly recommend the Kaskazi Boutique Beach House!

After an exciting safari in Masai Mara, we looked forward to our next stop - Kaskazi Boutique Beach House. It had been warmly recommended to us - expectations were high, and we were not disapointed! A beatiful house and a lovely garden overlooking the beach and the sea. The owners Harriet and Eilif and the staff, made us feel very welcome from the first moment, and we felt at home right away. Authentic atmosphere,very tasty food, smiling faces, bicycle rides, walks on the beach and sailing in a traditional boat etc... Thank you all at Kaskazi, for shareing your Africa with us - we had a fantastic holiday. Anicken, Einar, Helene og Mads.
