The neighbourhood

The property is situated in a very quiet and a private Cove, with cliffs on both sides of the property - you hardly see anyone except the Fisherman and there are no beach vendors to harass you.
You can go for long walks on this unspoiled wild beach full of rock pools during low tide and see a rich variety of coral, marine and bird life. You can also go sailing, snorkeling or hand line fishing with the fishermen in the local canoes (Ngalawas). They also take you to the Gazi Bay to see the Mangroves and its endemic bird life. Nearby you can also walk to Kaya Kinondo Sacred Forest, a UNESCO site, which has a rich spiritual history spanning the decades of the slave trade era. In this Forest you will find some very old indigenous trees. A mere 45 minutes drive will take you to Shimoni Village where you can board a local dhow and snorkel in the famous Kisite Marine Park and visit Wasini Island and Shimoni Slave Caves. Sport Fishing, Scuba Diving, Kite-surfing, Jet Skiing and many other excursions can be arranged locally at an extra cost.

Our family group coming from UK, South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania for our son's wedding in Diani, spent an idyllic 9 days at The Cove. The well-trained staff went the extra mile to make our holiday relaxing and enjoyable. The meals were superb and chef, Josephat, was obliging and well-able to cook any cuisine. We particularly enjoyed the seafood cooked the Kenyan way. Melai, who looked after our rooms, was always smiling and nothing was too much trouble for him. And leading the on-site team was William who offered so much more than 'butler-services'. This tiny little man, nicknamed Wee Willy by husband Jack, is a little whizz, knowledgeable about the beach, town and environment issues. Stephanie, herself, popped in or phoned often to see that we were having the best time. Living most of her life in Diani, she has the contacts and advice to make sure that her guests are safe and getting the best value. Thank you for making our stay on the beautiful Kenyan coast memorable.

This was a fabulous place to stay for our family of 8. The property is rented out as a whole, so you have run of the place and great privacy! The staff was exceptional and went above and beyond to ensure our many needs were addressed. The Chef, was very creative and in addition to many wonderful meals, made some of the best soups I have had the pleasure of eating. Stephanie was incredibly responsive and also arranged for daily onsite massages and spa treatments. The chalets are all built around Baobab trees which are incorporated into the chalet design. Truly a one-of-a-kind experience. The ocean waves lulled us to sleep every night, the inifinity pool offered a wonderful vantage point to star gaze with all of the lights turned off as well in pool dining with the bar stools in the pool. Not to be missed are naps on the swing beds under each of the chalets that offer a cool breeze and unsurpasssed view of the ocean. If you are looking to be off the beaten path, this is the place for you. If you prefer being in the middle of the hustle and bustle, plan accordingly. We are looking forward to a return visit in the future.

It was one of the best trip I have ever had. It was maybe a bit far form the center but it was worth it. The Chalets were perfect. they looked even better than on the pictures. We were only 6 so everyone had its own chalet and the view from the chalet was amazing. The staff was really kind and the chef cooked for us really good meals. We spent our days between the swimming pool and the private beach. This place is perfect for couples or friends holidays. We will definitely come back.
