Diani Beach, Ukunda, Coast Province
Villa Maridadi, Msitu Kwetu, Diani, is situated, on Diani Beach Road, next to Manyatta Bar and just after two Fishes/Kim4love on the opposite side of the road. Diani beach is just moments away and within walking distance from the property, the beach access is just across the road from the main gates of Msitu Kwetu. Msitu Kwetu is a very nice small secure development with 24 hour security. The property is also very secure with a staff member always present for your additional security, but if you want complete privacy, you can always ask the staff member to leave or discuss the matter with me, as we are very flexible and its whatever suits your needs. The property has been built to a high specification, typically african in design, round in shape, with galana floors and a makuti roof. All it's furniture has been handmade locally and... Read more

The villa is nicely settled in a very green environment, so it is quiet and secluded. The housekeeper Margareth was very friendly, and we allways saw her with a smile. Also every day, the pool was cleened by Dennis the gardener. I very much liked the privacy wich was very important for us. Our cook Iddi prepared us good meals,...

Dear Luc Many thanks for your review, I am very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and everything was up to your expectation. With regard to tuk tuks, it's my understanding that they are allowed in, if guests have heavy shopping but I certainly will check this out when I am there, very soon. Many thanks and best wishes...

We have just spent a week at Villa Maridadi, Diani, which is a second/third-row property from the beach. Our group comprised four adults, all working professionals, together with our Golden Retriever pup – permission from the owner was sought and granted for the pup at the time of booking. While the Villa is well equipped and fairly well laid out,...

Dear Sylvia Fernandes-DeMela Thank you for your review, although it is very disappointing. It clearly states on the website that cleaning materials, toilet paper, washing up liquid, toiletries, must be paid for by the guests, which is quite normal here in Europe & other cottages in Kenya. Dogs will no longer be allowed at Villa Maridadi, as the pool pump...

We had a great stay: the villa is very comfortable and well kept, and in a very secure area. Its a good location, with the beach only across the road. The owner was very responsive and accomodating, which we've really appreciated. Just beware, as flagged by others that the compound is small and that staff is very present. If you...
