We were two friends staying for 10 nights in July on our first trip to Kenya. Flying from Nairobi to Ukunda airstrip, we were picked up and driven about 15 minutes to this wonderful villa. It's located in a very secluded spot yet still convenient with generally very little noise and surrounded by a plethora of plants and trees (more so now than the pictures suggest).
Excellent value for money
Great for a peaceful break
Staff are very polite and helpful
Convenient location for the beach, supermarket and restaurants
The pool (be aware chlorine is used to clean it but it was well maintained)
Security - we felt very safe at all times
The BBQ - a must use with locally sold fish and prawns to your door
Very easy to book a taxi or walk 5 mins to get a Tuk Tuk, which are MUCH cheaper
Plenty of glasses, dishes and utensils to cook with but the oven/grill didn't work. The gas hob worked just fine.
The villa was cleaned regularly by the staff
Electricity often cut out for the first few days and the generator had to be used, which is very noisy. It improved later on in our stay
Wifi not reliable especially with several people connected as it is shared by 2 villas in the compound (we planned all of our day trips at the villa so it was difficult to research them some days to work out what we wanted to do - better to buy a local sim and use data as back-up)
Not a huge issue but very few basics are supplied (we had to buy bin bags, hand soap, washing up liquid and additional toilet paper). The Nakumat supermarket isn't far to buy these items and is on the way from the nearby airstrip or Mombasa.
Marco Polo agency is 5 mins away and recommended for safaris as we did an excellent overnight one in Tsavo East (highlight of the holiday). Day trips to Mombasa etc can be on the pricey side though.
Overall, we had a lovely stay and I would recommend the villa to anyone and especially to those wishing to have privacy and generally a relaxing stay in Diani. . Silvio the owner was also very helpful and responsive to emails. Very much looking forward to returning in the near future.
