Cottages in Mombasa

While recently in Mombasa, I discovered that the other affordable option to staying to a hotel are the cottages.

Some of these cottages are self catering and you can have somebody come and cook and clean for cheap. There are several cottages both on the South and North Coast of the Coastal Town

I would point out most of the cottages are on the South Coast and most are self-catering. also some are on the beaches and have beach boys and girls that wait for you to go to them

there are many at the south coast, but most of them are not direct at the beach.

Direct on the beach and at the Diani Beach are the Warrandale Cottages (they have some with seaview)or the Bonde Cottage (there we have been last year - great, 2 big and one smaller bedroom, 2 bathrooms, great cook - hudge terrasse with sunbeds and great seaview), which is on the same compound. Really fantastic, great location, pool. The only thing which we missed was a generator (i know....)

But despite of this point very comfortable.

Other option, but very basic might be one of the Vindigo Cottages - but these ones really need a refurbishment.

There are lots of simple cottgaes and some plusher villas to rent for those of us who like to get away from it all at places like Tiwi on the south coast. Moonlight bay and Capriccio to name but two. Very simple, away from it all and wonderful with direct beach access. Not to everyone's liking though.
