This was the perfect stay for our final three nights in Kenya. We rented cottage #5- a three bedroom with a full kitchen and perfect beach view porch! You definitely get your money's worth here in terms of peace, views and space. It's not a resort and lacks certain amenities such as wi-fi and fresh water showers (they have salt...

We love this inexpensive place! We were in cottage 7 near the ocean with a huge porch. The sunrises were beautiful and the beach is great. There is a bit a coral near the hotel front but then a large sandy area in front of the coral. When the tide comes in, it is a great place to swim. The...

Lovely cottages right on such a glorious beach. Incredibly fine white sand and warm water. You can self cater or there are restaurants near by. Short tuk tuk ride to town for shopping, banks etc. Love the view from the cottage and the trees and plants around the property. Owners very helpful and friendly.
