Rosy's Cottages are very nice, clean houses & grounds and close to Diani shopping centre.

Owned by a Dutchman, as usual with this kind of establishment the rates are negotiable.

I stayed there for 5 weeks at the End of January to the beginning of March 2007.

The beach is a 10 minute walk (which is on the other side of the road).

Diani camp site is VERY close to a superb stretch of beach (no coral or sea urchins which plague many hotels along Diani beach).

Owned by a very pleasant Kenyan gentleman called Richard Bowley there are numerous small cottages to rent, and there is a nice restaurant & is close to the legendary Ali Barbours Beach Bar/Restaurant.

Diani shopping centre is 5 minutes away on foot.

Prices again VERY negotiable, I have stayed here many times.

I will be posting video footage of both the above on youtube shortly.

One of the nicest places is Kijiji, a long-established cluster of beautifully done apartments, all different, just a little north of the beach road junction on a nice low cliff above the beach. There's a pool, and you get a cook/ghousekeeper with each apartment.

We stayed in Bonde – superb. Very good value.

Hope that helps,

Hi,

forgot the cottages - smile.

Well, the kijiji - Warandale compound is really great. They are having some other cottages like Bonde, where we also stayed in 2007. The only one disadvantage of this compound is, that they are not having a generator. With all the power-cuts - i would try to get an accomodation with a generator.

It would be worth looking at the Travel Library website.

yellowheron_9 some of the beach around Diani can have too much coral (which attracts sea urchins) and renders it useless for swimming.

Google Earth is very good for picking out the best 'coral free' stretches of beach as well as giving local information about restaurants, shops & just about everything else : - )
