A place that is worth the truly detour! Superb location for this dream house. Total comfort in all simplicity and an attentive and stylish staff. I spent a wonderfully relaxing week there and only dream of going back. Thanks to Angie and Ludo for their warm welcome.

This was our 3rd visit and it was just what we needed. Angie, Ludo and the team are just amazing. The food is a delightful surprise each day, the laid back and relaxed vibe is always perfect for us and the views, location and setting are heavenly! Jackson and the service team do everything they can to make the stay as wonderful as can be, while monkeys, egg-laying turtles, and Suni (mini-antelope) complete this paradise on earth!

I find the comments below hard to understand. We are staying at Diani House at the moment and have been here for 5 days - it’ll be hard to leave next week! We have a very comfortable room with lovely outside space for chilling. A lovely communal area for sitting or chatting to other guests. The food is delicious; a small, well maintained pool with lots of sun loungers. Right on the beach so we have an early morning dip to start our day and a stroll along the beautiful beach in the cool of the afternoon Angie and her staff are, without exception, kind and thoughtful and really can’t do enough for us I can’t recommend this place more highly. Will certainly be back. Thank you Angie and Ludo - and all the amazing staff - for a fantastic holiday

This is your place if you dream of a garden where a vast mango tree spreads its shade and you look through to where palms sway above a perfect miles-long white sand beach. Add into the blissful mix fresh seafood served with a green papaya or palm heart/avocado salad (for example) for lunch and delicious 3 course dinners on the terrace under a starlit sky. With its cool design notes and lovely laid-back ambience Diani House exerts its very own Swahili-coast magic. Like us, you'll want to go back again and again for more of its always warm welcome and to be looked after superlatively by its attentive staff
