We were a family with 2 kids 9 & 12 years old (for a few days also joined by a friend based in Nairobi). Kids spent most of the day in the swimming pool when we were chilling out. They also enjoyed the visits by the resident pets.
Easy walking distance to the beach - a relatively quiet stretch with lovely white sand.
Short tuktuk ride to the shops and not that further to the local restaurants. 15-20 min from Ukunda airport.
Staff friendly and welcoming (and cook available if needed - though we mostly ate out). They also offered to mind the kids while we did the shopping.
we hope to visit again!
We came from a safari trip (Amboseli, Tsavo etc.) and were so happy to find this well maintained house for some relaxing beach.
I am not a big friend of beaches in Kenya, but the beach is not far to be reached from this house which is in the 'third row' somehow.
The place is very good to fit for a family with a lovely pool, shady and reasonably cool during hot Kenya days.
The caregiver can arrange and assist in many things, especially in hiring a cook. As my wife is Filipina and we had been living in Rwanda for two years already with almost no seafood available, we really got fresh, deliciously cooked sea food until we had to stay stop...
If you choose go to Kenya, Mombasa, Diani Beach this is for sure a good value for money location!
Fantastic retreat from the rigours of work! Beautiful garden, pool and the amazing Ivy who made everything go smoothly. The house is a short walk from the beach and the nearest shops. Kids loved the pool and I loved the peace and quiet. The hosts were very welcoming and made everything very easy to organise. Loved it!! thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants some peace and quiet and stunning surroundings.
