Une superbe villa au bord de la mer...
Cette villa de Kinondo Galu est une pure merveille de tranquillité pour ceux qui cherchent à se reposer. L'accès à la mer y est contigu et la piscine est plus que profitable surtout en cette période chaude. De par sa forme et sa conception, chacun peut y trouver un grand plaisir.
La possibilité de "commander" du poisson aux pécheurs du bord de plage est un vrai plus. Et c'est sans compter ceux qui avec leur bateau vous proposent d'explorer les fonds marins... tout ça à portée de main.
Concernant le confort, cette année il y avait en plus une connexion internet vraiment utile pour ne pas être trop coupé du monde.
Les chambres sont spacieuse et aérées, le personnel qualifié, et toujours prêt à vous aider.
Dans ce paradis, il y a cependant un point noir, il s'agit de l'éloignement de cette villa de tous commerce, et il faut impérativement louer un transport pour se rapprocher de la ville.
Egalement un point à améliorer, l'eau venant certainement d'un puit, elle est quelque peu saumatre et pour la douche c'est pas toujours le confort de ces dames.
Cette villa est de plus toute équipée mais au niveau froid (frigidaire, congélateur), le matériel s'usant rapidement, il faut penser à le renouveller.
Pour conclure, Kinondo est vraiment une villa intérressante et très abordable, c'est mon deuxième séjour ici, et c'est sûr, j'y reviendrais.
Hi and thanks for your testimony.

We had a wonderful time, thanks to all the staff, especially Maina and Godfrey.
The house is big and perfectly secluded. Three of the bedrooms have full sea views and breezy outlooks. The kids in particular enjoyed the vast pool with kiddy pool attached. The pool was always sparkling clean.
Godfrey the cook whipped up sumptuous dinners and lunches and even more sumptuous breakfasts!
A great location just 20 mins from Ukunda (Diani) airstrip but a world away from the hassles of life...
Joseph Ikavi and the team at Top Africa Safaris ensured our transfers and transport needs were fully met and arranged a scuba diving course which was perfect.

I was picked up from the airport, driven to Diani and received warmly by the staff. Even though we had been delayed for a couple of hours, they were all happily waiting to receive us. It was the warmest welcome ever. I stayed for 7 days and it was the best holiday,
I would recommend it without hesitation. I liked the following:
*Very friendly staff and helpful to all requests
*Excellent setting with easy access to the wonderful beach
*High standards in the Villa management
*The chef was very good
I also took my first safari with Joseph of TopAfrica Safaris who in my opinion were very professional. I was fascinated by the landscape, animals and nature in Tsavo and Ambosseli. It was a wonderful holliday.

Dear Home Away Holiday Rentals,
I would like take this chance to highly recommend to any one who may wish to go to holiday in Kenya coast not to worry when coming to stay in this villa. It is a very nice villa overlooking the ocean with all the rooms having direct view of the ocean, with nice private swimming pool only for the clients in the villa at any particular time, the swimming pools are for children and adults offering a view of the ocean and the garden with enough shed for resting under the sun and with a chance of enjoying Africa sun to accomplish your holiday, the members of staff are very friendly and we enjoyed every moment we were attended by them, the food we bought was prepared by the resident cook and was very well done, one needs only to tell them own to do it depending on ones choice on every means, our rooms were taken care of on daily basis as required for any VIP traveler and we have no word not to say big thanks to first Top Africa Safaris the tour operator that helped us to secure the villa through recommendation when we had not seen it, it is top kudos for them and generally for every one who took care for us during our holiday there.
Generally choosing the perfect place to stay on holiday is sometimes tough and with this in mind the property;
• Was listing and description accurate regarding the location, layout, facilities, etc
• Was clean, and well-maintained in all aspects
• We were really provided with good customer service through our stay and we would live to treasure this holiday in Kenya
• We would recommend this property to dear friends and relatives
• We liked the wild life safari organized by Top Africa Safaris Tsavo West National Park, Amboseli National Park and Tsavo East National Park, we were very luck to see the big five in their natural habitants and restaurant was good although the food at our villa was very sweet we only went out once.
I therefore without any hesitation would like to recommend any one who wishes to have a decent private holiday on self catering to work with Top Africa Safari and would for sure their stay in this villa or any other would be one of their life time.
