    5 star review  The place was so amazing, the ambience was great and the hospitality was second to none. We were most humbled by the unique and loving reception and treatment that was extended to us. We appreciate, and do so with the greatest measure of humility and gratitude promising a second and more visits to the place whenever we need to come to the coastal region. Just to mention but a few spectacular and non forgettable moments: well built and maintained rooms, a hospitable crew, amazing beach view, serene environment, the coolest neighborhood with a rich culture amongst many others. Frankly speaking, we lack the writing space and appropriate words to express the amazing experience we had in the few days we spent at your place. Maybe a one on one interview will do;) . You and your team are just but the best!!! Regards, Tom,Benjamin,Sharon and Gloria

  • 4 star review  Kenya's Indian Ocean shore; With beautiful white beaches in the remaining places. The hotel is beautiful. Beginning flowers, coconut trees, boabap miraculous tree, mango trees have a natural nature in mind. But Kenya needs emergency water boxes. Those who visit here, at least the heartbreakers of this country are in this beautiful country. When the Indian Ocean is retreated, the island becomes a surprise island. If you are on a boat trip, you can go on these white sand and eat lobster and fish barbecue. Only in Kenya 's travel starts malaria medicine (gained resistance except plaquenil) 15 days in advance. Get the vaccine yellow fever protects life for 1 time. Be a single typhoid. Then walk with confidence. Boabab fruit juice, your country to go. ******Kenya'nın Hint olyanusu kıyıları ; otellerden arta kalan yerlerde güzel beyaz plajlara sahip. Oteller zaten çok güzel . begönvil çiçekleri, hindistan cevizi ağaçları, boabap mucizevi ağacı , mango ağaçlarıyla muhtrşem bir doğal tabiata sahip. Ancak Kenya'nın acil su kutularına ihtiyacı var. şütfen burayı ziyeret edenler en azından gönül borcunu ödesinler bu güzel ülkeye.Hint okyanusu med cezirle çekilince ;sürpriz bir ada oluşuyor. tekne gezisindeyseniz bu beyaz kumlarda gezinip istakoz ve balık mangalı yiyebilirsiniz. Sadece Kenya' seyahatinde sıtma ilacı (plaquenil hariç direnç kazanmış) başlayın 15 gün önceden. aşı yaptırın sarı humma 1 kez ömür boyu korur. birde tifo aşısı olun. sonra güven ile gezin. Kahve satın alın , Boabab ağacı meyvesi, götürün ülkenize .

    positive review  The cottage is simply so quite and peaceful. We stayed two weeks and enjoyed every single minute there. The place is just in front of one of the most beautiful beaches of Watamu. The swimmingpool area is so quite and from time to time you can enjoy watching the monkeys jumping around the trees. Fatma was always cooking our breakfast and cleaning our place, she's been always so helpful and nice to us. We'll miss the delicious curry fish and the suppers cooked by Stanley. We really recommend the place to people that love the nature, the proximity to the sea and a relaxing and quite staying.
