About the neighbourhood
Right on the beach at Tiwi with 5 acres of garden and bush plot surrounding the house.
Whilst a pleasant enough breakfast (or other meals) can be had at Twiga Lodge (5 minutes down the beach, one must drive (25 minutes) into Diani for shopping, restaurants etc.
Getting around
Either bring your own car, hire one or rely on the local taxi service (telephone for booking/collection). For down to earth travel (not recommended for the faint hearted) there are 'tuk tuk's (Indian tricycles) and 'matatus' (minibuses, sort of).
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Ukunda/Diani: 9.0 km
Railway: Mombasa: 20.0 km
Ferry: Likoni: 17.0 km
This will depend very much on how you intend to travel to the Coast. If flying in, we recommend doing so to the Ukunda airstrip thus avoiding Mombasa traffic congestion and the sometimes unreliable Likoni ferry.
We can advise in more detail once we know your means of arrival.
