Wonderful place nestled in palm trees with private pool, and still close to all main attractions But the highlight is the vibe which Reesha and Fahad create: eclectic, fun and mindful I can’t think of anywhere else I would stay in Diani

I enjoyed my stay at Footprints' dorm because it was so well maintained with warm lighting and thoughtful storage spaces. The location is awesome, and the hosts even more so with their helpful tips and warm demeanour. Definitely recommend!

Footprints and the lovely staff charmed us with wonderful hospitality during a recent five-night stay. We are a family with three teen boys, so we had a private room and a family room. The breakfast each day was excellent and served at whatever time we chose. We had dinner here two nights - curry and prawns - and it was excellent. All the prices were reasonable. The hosts at Footprints told us the best places to visit and to eat and helped us understand how to get tuktuks, what to pay for guides and snorkeling outings, etc. They set up everything and made the stay perfect. The pool is awesome - huge and deep and clean. The walk to the beach is short and the ocean is breathtaking. We loved the dogs and cats, which for us made it feel like home. The other travelers were met were friendly and not imposing. We highly recommend Footprints if you are looking for something more like home and less like a giant resort. We hope to return!

I might have reviewed Footprints House after my last visit, but that was two and a half years ago and even though the place is still the same, it is different. The house seems more lived in and the staff, all of the staff, are so friendly. Everyone seem to be in a good mood, the place is clean and there are animals. Four dogs and two cats. When I visited the first time, guests could use the kitchen, now there is a cook. You pre-book your meal the evening before, ie in the morning, prices are reasonable and the food is good. Would I recommend this place? Definitely. Will I come back to stay here? Absolutely!

We’ve just left from 3 nights at Footprints House. This house is very spacious, Clean and beautifully looked after! We stayed in the family room which is huge with comfy beds. The communal area is a great place to hangout and meet other travellers. We sat one evening with the lady that runs the house and had a few drinks with her she’s very funny to hangout with and also extremely helpful if you need advice or help with anything else, nothing ever seemed too much for her! She also took us to watch the sunset one evening which is on a lovely beach not far from the house with a bunch of her friends where we chilled, drank, listened to music and swam in the warm ocean whilst watching the sunset. The pool is communal and shared with a few other houses but we always seemed to have it for ourselves and some of the time we were lucky enough to have Harley the Footprints dog come in for a dip which was my children’s (ages 8 and 10) highlight of the stay. The only downside was the man who also runs the house accused one of my children of breaking a flimsy salt and pepper stand which was on the communal kitchen table. The children were upset by this accusation and said they hadn’t even touched it! The beach is beautiful and only short walk from the house. The laundry was great value for money, fill up a basket and they wash it and get it back to you pretty quick and it’s cheap, 300 KS for the full basket. Breakfast was great for $4 but we usually made our own food as you can use the kitchen and also have a big fridge to share with the other quests!. Tea and coffee is free. Security is also great and the security guard is lovely - he has lovely office under the tree 😂
