Four Twenty South comprises six colonial cottages set in three acres of beautiful tropical gardens bordered by an unspoilt dazzling powder white beach lapped by the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean. The houses ...More are right on the sea overlooking a sandy lagoon where swimming is safe at any tide and a breeze gently cools the heat of the day. Ours are the original beach houses on Diani/Galu. The business opened its doors in 1958 and has been run by the same family since the 1960s. The chef and housekeeper are included in the price as is collection at Ukunda/Diani airstrip and pre-stocking the house with provisions if required. Fresh fish and seafood come to the door as do a selection of seasonal fruit and vegetables. There are supermarkets within a 5 - 10 minute car ride and basics available a 5 minute walk away. Our driver can take you shopping by appointment or the chef can go for you if you would rather relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches in the world... Less
