Ansie & Andre (SA) (Direct from Airbnb)

“This was our BEST holiday ever. My husband and I arrived at Mombasa airport and a driver was
already waiting to transport us to Mike and Sabine’s place.
We were welcomed by them with a cup of honey ginger tea after Sabine showed us our luxury tent accommodation.
The facilities were impeccably clean, the surroundings were paradise itself, the sea view from the
cliff pool was breathtaking and the hosts were the two most hospitable persons we’ve ever met.
The service from, and interaction with our hosts, was 5 star quality!
Then there is Charles, the cook!! What a lovely humble man!
Please do yourself a favor and hire Charles for your holiday!!
His cooking skills are comparable to the most upmarket restaurants in the world.
Fresh from the sea and on your plate, a-la-Charles.
We also met Rusty, Sabine’s favorite squirrel. Sabine was great with organizing trips for us such as the
Pili Pipa Dhow trip were one can snorkel in the turquoise water of Wasini Island.
This is a must on the “to do list” in Tiwi Beach.
The second WOW moment was when Saidi took us to see the star fish island!!
What a wonderful experience. We were also fortunate to see the Colobuses from Mike and Sabine’s verandah!!!
And at night, the silence is golden with just the sound of the little frogs in the pond and of course
the bush babies in the trees and the sound of the sea in your ears.
If you want to totally relax and unwind, then Mike and Sabine’s place is for you.
A big thank you to two lovely people who took the opportunity to create this wonderful place
where strangers could enjoy a piece of paradise in Mombasa.
You are really super hosts! Aussie Mike and Sabine ... you’ll see us next year, same time, same place, again.
 I think this last sentence express our satisfaction with this AIRBNB RENTAL of yours!”

“The views from Mike and Sabine’s home are AMAZING!
They have a small cliff top pool from which watching the sunrise or sunset will absolutely make your day.
The chef was also great, he needed no follow up whatsoever.
I gave him a menu and voila! Everything, and I repeat everything that was on the menu
was soo well prepared and presented at the exact time I asked for.
We also ordered sea food that was brought fresh from the sea so our dining experience was superb!
Daniel, was also soo helpful, polite and always available for anything.
It’s a perfect home for a group stay, I would definitely recommend it.
Our only regret was the place was soo big and beautiful I feel like we really underutilized it.”

Paris & Aimee (NZ)

“An unforgettable experience in the most outstanding location.
The tent is spacious, unique and very comfortable, but we spent most of our time by the
private pool with beach front views... a truly breathtaking location.
The cook Charles is fantastic, all the staff are great and Aussie Mike and Sabine were the best hosts.
We highly recommend asking for Said to take you on a local starfish island safari and snorkel, incredible...”

Christine (CH)

We stayed for a few weeks at Tiwi with our family and absolutely enjoyed our stay!
The house and surroundings are like on the pictures. The staff is superbe!
There are some activities to do in walking distance to the house (rock pools, starfish island,
watching baby turtles hatch if in season,...).
Also, if you go to the left of the house through the gate, you have a beach for swimming.
The house is in a very quiet place embedded in nature with monkeys, bush babies, horses,...in the immediate surroundings.
If you want restaurants, bars, different beaches,...you can go into Diani by taxi
depending on the road and traffic, it takes a bit more or less time.
Thank you Sabine and Mike! See you again sooner than later.

Expect amazing hospitality, amazing food--we enjoyed every meal,
expect the hosts to make your stay worthwhile--it is, believe me.
The views, wow...!!! All you can dream of.

Huong (Vietnam)

“So far the most beautiful and magical place we have ever been!
Mike and Sabine are very kind and friendly people and they have the best team of staff.
Charles, the chef/house keeper made us feel so indulged, well taken care of and very at home.
He is amazing cook too. It was so worthy using his service.
Make sure you provide a list of ingredients or collect them PRIOR you ARRIVAL.
We had Charles to shop for us and it was so much easier. However, if you have a car or prefer to shop yourselves,
the big town isn't far away, about 20mins drive.
They have a reliable fish supplier and we had fish and seafood from him EVERYDAY and it was amazing!
We didn't leave Tiwi the entire time we were there because there is so much to do during the day around the
property and the amazing beach.
We did go to Diani beach road to get some cash and had lunch at the sushi restaurant there and it was very very good.
Make sure you walk to the sandbar and walk along the reef to see a large collection of sea creatures!
We didn't get to swim in the African pool (a natural cave pool 20 mins walk away).
Would recommend to use a local guide (for very low fee) because they know the best spots for you to explore.
It was an such amazing time we had.
Only one downside is that the tent is much darker than what you see in the picture, everything else is accurate as listing.”

Daniela. (Translated from German)

Mike and Sabine were great, warm and open-minded hosts whom I would like to thank again.
The Tent and the environment where it stands is just a dream.
Anyone looking for peace will find them in the oasis that Sabine and Mike have created here on Tiwi Beach with great attention to detail.
We felt very comfortable and welcome here.
Both were always approachable, Sabine had great tips for snorkeling (be sure to book!),
For one of the most relaxing massages on the beach by Monique (definitely book, rarely so professional!)
And took care of the transfers to Diani Beach or the airport ,
We were on safari before the arrival and it was hard to shop: so Sabine kindly took charge of organizing
the shopping so we did not have to worry about anything.
At this point again a big thank you to the gracious Charles, who has cooked us 5 days.
His Prawns Marsala is to kneel down.
The tent and everything around it was sparkling clean, as well as the private area with jacuzzi overlooking the Indian Ocean.
This property and these hosts will be hard to beat, so only the biggest booking recommendation for this pearl on
Tiwi Beach is truly one of the nicest accommodations I have ever been to. I would love to come back.

Hi Mike and Sabine ,
I would of loved to have wrote a reveiw for your stunning property, hosts with the most,
fantastic staff, great location, but i dont know where to leave it.
My only criticism is that you neglect to mention the beautiful sunrises and skies as the sun goes down ....what can i say .
Your property was a dream for a hobby photographer like myself .
Ive attached a few of my favourite photos taken in and around your property.
Once again many thanks for our wonderful stay.
Best Wishes
Elaine and Co .

“Aussie Mike and Sabine are just incredible hosts. Their place is not just special, but unique.
We enjoyed so much each and every day. And one of the most special things was the private chef they arranged - Charles.
He was just incredible. We picked up a variety of veggies and other items when we flew in, and Charles
was a magician, arranging fresh fish from the local fisherman each day, and making the most incredible
meals with the random ingredients we purchased.
He was just the nicest person, and his attention to detail transported us from this luxury tent to a 5 star
experience at a price I would have never expected.
We'll be back, and if you are reading this - you must go to this oasis.”

Christina and Mum

“What a magical place! My mum and I had a fabulous stay, many thanks to Mike and Sabine.
Communications and check-in logistics were seamless.
The tent was delightfully situated in lush greenery, yet just meters from the beach and amazing ocean views.
Charles, our chef, ensured that we were well taken care of—some of the best meals we had in Kenya.
We couldn’t recommend enough, and are counting down til when we can return!”

Lara

“From start to finish, our stay with Mike and Sabine was wonderful. The tent itself is beautiful -
really spacious inside, and the bathroom and outdoor seating area are really nicely decorated.
The tent is set in the most peaceful garden - it is really secluded and you can sit and eat your breakfast
outside with a view of the monkeys in the morning. The private plunge pool is a great touch and makes the stay
feel even more special. Mike and Sabine are really great hosts, who go out of their way to make sure that you have
everything that you need. We really enjoyed our chats with them.
Whilst we took advantage of the chance to fully relax in this serene setting, we also did the Starfish nature tour with
Saidi which was a really great way to spend a couple of hours and learn about local conservation.
We must say that perhaps the highlight of our trip was being looked after by Charles -
he keeps the whole place super clean and is an amazing chef. We would really recommend getting him to
cook for anyone who is staying at the tent in the future (the prawns masala and coconut curries are a must!).
Thanks very much for a great few days - we will be sure to be back soon!”

Lara’s private feedback for you:

“Hi Mike and Sabine, just wanted to say a huge thanks for a wonderful weekend away. Your place is beautiful and exactly
what we needed for a relaxing few days. You are fantastic hosts and we really appreciated you letting us borrow the kikoys
and the chances we got to chat. As a special mention - Charles is really really fantastic. His food was up there with some
 of the best we have had and he is just generally a pleasure to be around. We can't wait to come back!”

Séjour extraordinaire dans un petit coin de paradis.
Mike et Sabina ont été aux petits soins pour nous.
Leur environnement est remplis d'animaux exceptionnels : singes, gros lézard, oiseaux magnifiques.
Ce sont deux hôtes exceptionnels qui vous accueillent comme à la maison.
Merci pour l'organisation de notre superbe safari au Tsavo park par Mike, à nos délicieux repas cuisinés par
Charles leur extraordinaire chef.
Un grand merci à ces 2 nouveaux amis. Merci infiniment.

Truly a gem, the Tiwi beach house is a favorite and staple vacation for myself and my friends.
The entire property is thoughtfully designed to encourage the most amazing social interactions.
From the pools, the beach, and amazing common areas, this is the perfect spot to spend a magical weekend with your friends

Here’s what Sammy wrote

“We thoroughly enjoyed 5 days at the beautiful Waterside Villa.
The location is nestled in a peaceful part of tiwi beach about 20 minutes away from the Hustle
and bustle diani yet with close proximity to explore the restaurants downtown.
We also enjoyed diving at the nearby Amani resort and some of our group went to another spa for a day of treatments.
The property is quite unique in its gorgeous wooden decor and unique architectural design that encompasses
beautiful views from three different balconies surrounding the magnificent and well maintained pool.
I recommend enjoying the pool early and often. The staff is first class five star level customer care.
The skills of the chef in creating delicious specialties as well as being open and creative with our suggestions was awe inspiring.
Every request was met beyond expectations and we felt cared for and pampered. Can't thank them enough.
It's best to do your grocery shopping ahead of arriving at the home. Highly recommend this property and hope you enjoy it.”

Here’s what Andrea wrote

“Mike and Sabine’s place is truly paradise. The house is spectacular - every detail has been thought out.
The rooms are huge, the breeze is incredible, and the pool is just perfect.
Nobody wanted to leave the pool - kids And adults alike had a blast! But Mildred, Daniel and wafula were the stars:
they went above and beyond. They are attentive, and just a great crew.
The food was exceptional - we enjoyed every meal and just wanted more and more!
And I really appreciated the amazing first meal that was planned to perfection (thanks Sabine for arranging the delicious cake)
- my mom was in heaven and really enjoyed the surprise birthday celebration. We couldn’t have asked for more.
And we also loved going to starfish island and the caves and Africa pools with Saeed!
He’s so knowledgeable and nice and my family had a blast - it was definitely a big highlight of our stay.
We highly recommend mike and Sabine’s place - it’s a little piece of heaven on the Kenyan coast.
Thank you for making it so memorable!!! We will return!”

Andrea’s private feedback for you:

“Mike and Sabine - our stay was truly fantastic.
You made the weekend so special and my mother and entire family were extremely happy.
We loved the house, the food (wow more than 5 stars), Daniel/Mildred/wafula were amazing, the beach, starfish island,
caves and Africa pool with Saeed, everything was top notch.
The only bad moment the whole trip was the arrival and ride to your place.
But today the ride went great and smooth! Thanks for being great hosts and again,
thanks to the house team who made our stay completely perfect.
We are still salivating over the delicious food and already missing the pool!
We will certainly recommend your place to friends and hope to return some day. Andrea”

“Our stay at Ocean Villa was simply phenomenal!
Mike and Sabina have created a very unique and beautiful place, with amazing taste, views and comfort.
Their very friendly and warm welcome and their constant willingness to help in any way possible made the trip even more special.
They are both incredible people. And Dorothy and Wafoula, the wonderful staff we had at the villa, took care of all our
daily needs with talent and with a big smile. Our kids loved them, and so did we! Memories for a lifetime for all of us. Merci!!!”

Thomas’s private feedback for you:

“Mike and Sabina, We are back home but our head is still in Tiwi and we hope it will stay there for awhile.
We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the warm and friendly welcome and for making us feel "at home" during those few days.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa but more importantly meeting you both, hearing your stories (even the wild ones!)
and sharing a glass or two with you guys. A rich meeting and hopefully a lasting relationship. Take care. We'll be in touch.
And enjoy your trip in Tanzania! Thomas, Flo and the kids.”

Yan, Shanghai

“Absolutely a hidden gem! This place is paradise! The real place is even more amazing than how it looks like from the pictures!
It is like a part of national park itself. Luxury tent, stunning view, amazing design, next to the beach, definitely one of the best places I ever stayed.
There is also a big bathroom and a kitchen where you can cook stuff or order chief to cook for you.
Although be careful of the naughty monkeys and make sure you lock them out of the kitchen :)
A Pool overlooking the sea view where you can chill out and enjoy the view.
During the night, you sleep on the comfortable bed, along with the sound of running water, we slept quiet well!
Mike and Sabine are super nice hosts, they are super helpful, reliable, professional and warm-hearted, they make you feel at home and very welcomed.
They helped us a lot during our trip and made our journey worry-free and enjoyable!
Hate that we have so few days and can’t spend more time here.
Would love to enjoy more time in this paradise and hear more stories of their adventurous life here.”

David, NY

“In six years of using Airbnb I’ve experienced a handful of magical accommodations, but nothing quite as special as Mike and Sabine’s compound.
Crafted like something Tolkien would lovingly invent, each of their homes embodies a soul that only the most thoughtful and interesting new pieces of architecture can.
We needed to arrive a day early, and Mike let us stay in a room in one of the villas — more expansive and luxurious than pictures can capture,
with sweeping rooms and a horizontal but very alive baobob tree out front. The tent, when we got to it the next day, was no less impressive.
An open deck with plushy couches for reading, drinking, or eating breakfast (prepared by their brilliant loaned chef) also admits
a regular troop of resident Vervet monkeys. Theatrical, joyful creatures, we almost missed the beach for watching them hang upside down
off palms, prattle at each other, and nurse their pink-faced, marble-eyed babies every morning. Beyond the porch is a tropical arboretum —
grounds so well landscaped you’d think you were in the jungle, until you realize it’s the jungle of imaginative films, not the dangerous wild.
Always close is the ocean, which is easily accessed and more easily observed from stunning chaises along the cliff.
Joining the monkeys are bushbabies and the occasional shy monitor, and always the happy company of Mike and Sabine themselves.
As hosts and conversationalists, they are as wonderful as their home. You’d be so lucky to stay here and meet them.
We are, and we can’t wait to come back.”

David Michael’s private feedback for you:

“Mike, what can I say? We had the greatest time.
Your and Sabine’s style, setting, and most of all company made us forget all about the tribulations of our safari.
We feel so grateful to have met you and privileged to stay in your beautiful homes.
Oh! And the book I recommended was The Unwinding by George Packer — brilliant and beautifully written.
Jane Campion’s miniseries Top of the Lake (at least the first series) will also appeal to you, I think.
Looking forward to meeting again.”

“The Waterside villa is really something extraordinary!
We were two families and we loved that it was actually two seperate buildings joined together with a common area and dining area.
Although our two families spent two weeks together we also got own seperate family time with our kids.
The outside common areas are fantastic as well as the pool area.
Wafula is an excellent chef and surprised us many times with his good food, the best food we ate in
Kenya during our stay were cooked by Wafula. Mildred and Daniel did everything to make us feel comfortable, very sweet and nice people.
It truly felt like a once in a life time experience. Sabine and Mike are excellent hosts and very helpful in everything, nothing was ever a problem.
They know everything there is to know in Tiwi/Dania and have the best recommendations weather it is
regarding a beach, restaurant, excursion or safari. Can't wait to come back!”

Marten’s private feedback for you:

“Sabine/Mike, sorry for late feedback but better late than never.
Thank you once again for a fantastic stay, your hospitality,

I would like to extend warm thanks on behalf of my wife, myself and our three children who stayed
at your Waterside Villa for two weeks near Tiwi Beach recently.
The setting was absolutely stunning, the facilities and grounds were well-kept and the
staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating.
Moses, the cook, was especially talented. The whole team definitely spoiled us.
Sabine and Mike were extremely patient and friendly hosts, who answered our questions kindly and
quickly (I’m afraid I send Mike a massive amount of e-mails, this being our first excursion into Africa),
and gave us wonderful recommendations for day trips in the area.
We had an absolutely phenomenal family vacation at Waterside Villa, and we hope to return in the future.
I am already starting to spread the word in my circle of friends as well.
Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

“I can't really imagine finding somewhere better than this place anywhere on this Earth :)
We took the entire compound consisting of 3 properties, the waterside, oceanvilla and luxury tent.
The chefs and the rest of the staff were phenomenally attentive and anticipated anything we might need,
and the food was fantastic :)
The area was spacious and lovely, and as large as it was and as many people as we had there was plenty of privacy.
The beach is right next to the property and there was lots of stuff to do, including snorkeling, massages, or just staring at the ocean from the front pool. ”

“We stayed at Mike's and Sabine's place for a few days and could not have asked for a better experience.
The house is beautiful and the pool was relaxing, in addition we enjoyed the beach that is truly amazing.
Sabine's acquaintance Shaid took us out snorkeling and told us about his work in protecting the local
environment, would really recommend!
Daniel and the rest of the staff were fantastic and took great care of us.
The food they made was amazing with fresh fish/seafood from the sea every day.
Would recommend this place to anyone interested in a relaxing holiday on the Kenyan coast!”

So, for my 30th birthday, myself and 14 friends headed down and rented out both Waterside and Ocean Villa (they're on the same plot).
The place is just incredible, I can't recommend it enough.
I have lived in Kenya for two years, some of my friends have been in the country for seven years.
We all agree this is in the top 2-3 villa's that any of us have ever stayed in, and easily the best we've been to on the Kenyan coast.
I hope to be back soon.”

Mike and Sabine's Tiwi Beach House is truly beyond description.
Absolutely everything went perfectly, and you could not ask for a lovelier holiday home.
We spent our days shuttling between the glorious pool and the beach, which we had all to ourselves,
taking breaks only for delicious meals prepared by Peter and the team.
The bedrooms are all huge and beautifully done, and though we were only four,
the space is large enough that it could comfortably host quite a few more!
Cannot recommend highly enough- we'll certainly be back.

Vi hadde et fantastisk opphold på Tiwi Beach. Huset er helt annerledes enn noen andre steder vi har leid, og klarer å kombinere
luksus med en følelse av å leve tett på naturen på en utrolig måte. På soverommene oppe fikk man følelsen av å sove under
åpen himmel og det var virkelig flott å våkne til soloppgang og fuglekvitter. Litt uvant med saltvann i dusjen (og i bassenget),
men det ble fort en vane. Huset har ikke aircondition, men til tross for at det var 30-35C på dagtid ble det ikke for varmt og ingen
ble heller forkjølet. Det var også en befrielse å være uten internett i en hel uke (Det er mulig å få internett tilgang i
restauranten på nabo-hotellet om du skulle være desperat). Personalet ved huset var alltid på pletten og sørget for et uforglemmelig
og problemfritt opphold. Anbefaler særlig Peter's sjømat - nydelig :) Den flotte stranden ligger en 3-4 minutters gange unna, er
fri for "beach boys" og føltes veldig privat og trygg. Vi tok turen til Starfish Island, African Pool og Rock Pool i følge med en
lokal guide (alt i en radius av 15 minutter fra huset).
Dette kan absolutt anbefales. Vi var også på safari til Tsavo East med Southern Cross Safaris etter anbefalinger fra Mike.
Selv om kjøreturen ditt var lang (ca 5t hver vei) ble det en flott opplevelse.
I nærområdet til huset finner du ellers lite av interesse, og det var en stor kontrast å se hvordan den fattige lokalbefolkning
bodde i bølgeblekkskur og jordhytter mens vi levde i luksus på innsiden av gjerdet.
Alt i alt et flott opphold i et fantastisk hus!

The house was amazing and with the staff -Milred, Daniel and the chief Peter we had the best stay!! We ( group of nine )
landed in the middle of the night an Mike and Sabine arranged the transfer from airport and we had also asked them to help
so we had breakfast. The staff kept the house spotless and gave us service in a personal way and really did their best
to adapt to our needs. ( ex gluten intolerant, drank alot of coffe )We felt it was important to them to give us a good experiece.
We never missed out on anything. Peter made suggestions for meny - they also did the shopping for us.
He is an excellent cheif. We said yes to all he suggested. Fresh fish are deliverd to the house everyday and the meat we
had was good as well. One night we had lobsters - just great. When they helped us shop they did it in an economic way so
food total was good value. I believe that they adapt to the guests special wishes.. We were very intrested in all animals
and there were plenty around if you just had your eyes open ( bush -baby, mungo, small frogs and lizards etc).
From Mike and Sabine you will most likely get the best suggestions on were to go.
We had done some bookings in advance. I wish we would have gone for their advice in stead.
It had been better value and less problems. We also recommend to go to starfish place and natural pool with Sadie.
( just ask Sabine or Mike) We also rekommend - if you like massage and spa treatments to have Monique come to the house.
We enjoyed. We hope to come back ( and we understand that we have to book in time because it is a popular place)
For us this this stay was better then all our expectations.... Thank you Mike, Sabine, Daniel, Milred and Peter :-)

What Alexander loved about your listing:
“Very peaceful, quiet and private - left to your own devices, it's a fantastic escape from the hustle and bustle.”

“Mike and Sabine were super helpful in preparing for our visit, including arranging transport and providing advice on what to bring.
Once we arrived, they were very welcoming and friendly.
The location and ambiance is wonderful, situated in very peaceful, private and quiet surroundings, with everything you need.
It feels a bit like being in a forest camp, albeit a short walk to the ocean and the plunge pool with a magnificent view over the coral cliff and towards the sea.
It's a short walk to a private white sand beach and other activities, including incredible starfish village!
Highly recommended and massive thanks to Mike and Sabine for a great, relaxing stay!”

Waterside Villa is unique.
The decor is fascinating - spacious rooms, all with inspiring details and beautiful furniture, designed by Sabine.
The location is magnificent, with a direct view of the Indian Ocean, and provides privacy, tranquility and total relaxation.
The staff were friendly, polite, helpful and efficient. The chef prepared meals equal to cuisine in a top class hotel.
Excellent security.
Beach and rock pools are a stone cast away.
Outings to various places of interest can be arranged through Mike and Sabine.
Enjoy !

Here’s what Jamie wrote from AirBNB “What a place! Complete tropical, coastal paradise.
The villa was as gorgeous as the photos suggest, the beach was stunning (and very, very private), the pool was perfect. HUGE bedrooms and bathrooms.
The patio area was truly so gorgeous and relaxing with sitting areas on each side of the house.
Our family of 8 spent 5 days enjoying Tiwi beach and simply had to be drug away from the pool and villa to do any sightseeing in local Diani.
Why go sightseeing when you're already in paradise? Mike was a great host and was available for anything we needed but also gave us privacy.
He even happily arranged transport from the local airport for us!
The villa came with 3 staff (including a wonderful 5-star chef) who took care of every need we had, before we even asked.
The villa is technically self-catering, meaning you purchase and provide your own food items, but then all your meals are prepared by the villa chef.
Of course you're free to enter the kitchen as you wish and prepare anything you might want as well.
My only recommendation would be to provide guests with a grocery shopping list in advance of arrival that aligns with the chefs abilities.
He can cook anything with great skill... so we ended up making several trips to the market as he offered suggestions of meal plans and provided shopping lists for spices/ingredients.
Maybe a list with some of his signature meals and corresponding ingredient needs?
Had I known this in advance I could have spent more time in the pool and less time grocery shopping.
The fresh seafood delivered to the door was unbelievable and prepared to perfection! All in all, this place is spectacular and I can't wait to be back.
We all agreed we could have stayed forever! (also the gorgeous horses on site were an added bonus and so fun to watch graze) Thanks Mike and Sabine!”
Jamie’s private feedback for you: What Jamie loved about your listing: “everything! what a home. we LOVED it.
And thanks again, for arranging to let us stay in the "tent" for that additional night.
That was great too! you're living the dream. we hope to be back some day. thank you for everything!!”
What Jamie thinks you can improve: “I made a note in the review about the chef and grocery items... its wasn't too big a deal of course,
but having no idea of how wonderful of a cook he was, kind of threw us off.
We originally brought pretty simple food items and jumped in the kitchen upon arrival to quickly slap some sandwiches together since we were hungry after traveling...
but i think that offended the chef and we made a bad first impression.
I just didn't quite understand that he was employed to cook all day for us and that he was a phenomenal cook. for example,
I told him we loved simple Kenyan food like sikuma wiki and chapati and he seemed to be frustrated at the suggestion.
Which makes sense when i realized he was a gourmet chef. hahah. anyway, i felt a little stupid and i think i made him feel a little frustrated.
We got it sorted of course, but having a document that gives an example of his range of meal ideas for a couple days and grocery lists to go with that, would be awesome!”

Firstly a huge thank you to both Sabina and Mike for their hospitality, helpfulness and all around pleasant company.
We were lucky enough to experience both the beautiful tented accommodation and the Ocean Villa near the beach.
Both had a completely tranquil atmosphere with both class and rustic charm.
The grounds are absolutely stunning and the views out to sea are glorious to awake to.
The Ocean Villas are perhaps more desirable should you wish to stay for a long time as they have a private pool and are much more spacious.
We took advantage of the chef Kassim who was good and were thrilled when informed we could order freshly caught fish/prawns etc for our meals.
Dorothy the head house keeper was always there when you needed her and was super helpful - as were all the staff onsite.
It was fantastic to be able to arrange outings through Sabina and Mike who gave us loads of helpful tips about where to go and what to do etc.
Some of our adventures included: Star Fish Island - a must see! -
The Colobus Conservation, reservations at Alibabours Cave - beautiful dining - and many more.
We would highly recommend either experience to anyone who wishes to have a private holiday in a luxurious yet natural environment.

Fantástico lugar para descansar
Hemos estado alojados durante una semana y sólo podemos tener buenas palabras para Mikel y Sabine.
Han sido unos excelentes anfitriones y nos han ayudado en todo lo que hemos necesitado.
El lugar es maravilloso, tal y como se ve en las fotos, incluso mejor.
La playa es preciosa y hemos estado completamente solos, sin nadie que te pueda molestar.
La experiencia ha sido insuperable, mucho mejor de lo que podíamos esperar.
Gracias a Mike y Sabine. We have been staying for a week and we only have good words for Mike and Sabine.
They were great hosts and helped us in everything we needed.
The place is wonderful, as seen in the pictures, even better.
The beach is beautiful and we have been all alone with no one to disturb you.
The experience was much better than we could imagine.
Thanks to Mike and Sabine.

We stayed in Mike and Sabine's tented cottage in August for 4 nights.
We travelled with 2 young children (5 and 3) and we had the most amazing time.
The tented cottage is perfect for a peaceful break.
The gardens are fantastically lush and provide the privacy we needed!
The cottage was as described in the photos and we were as comfortable as we could.
We also took advantage of the services of the chef, which I highly recommend!
We requested typical local foods, including fresh seafood, which were cooked to perfection and which we thoroughly enjoyed.
The maid was on hand to clean and help with any requests we had.
The small pool is at the bottom of the gardens, however, this was not an issue for us.
We also enjoyed the small beach which felt rather private as not many people used it.
Prior to our arrival, Mike also recommended a scenic route to get to the cottage, which was far more enjoyable than the normal highway.
In all, I would highly recommend the cottage.

What a great place
We had a really fantastic time at Waterside.
The building style is unique and amazing.
The pool in the middle is just the perfect place to spend an afternoon with an amazing view out to the see.
And the staff was amazing.
They anticipated everything we needed.
We had a butler, housekeeper and Chef.
The Chef did a great Job at every single meal.
We would just bring something home and he would trsansorm it into something great.
We had plenty of fresh seafood on offer at our doorstep.
We will definately be back. Thanks Aussie Mike for a great week.

Stunning
This is the second time we have stayed at this beautiful villa.
The design is unique and the views and sound of the ocean very relaxing
It's an idyllic location right on the ocean with great swimming at high tide and rock pools and the ability to wake out to the reef at low tide.
Ultra luxury!!

Waking up to a seabreeze in paradise
We stayed here with a group of friends and all loved it!
The house is constructed only with local materials, very spacious and open, so one can hear the ocean in every room and enjoy a refreshing breeze.
Definitely worth to be mentioned, too, is the food prepared by the chef George (ask for the crab!!!) -
especially in the beginning and end the end we gave him a hard time with our limited supplies,
but he managed to make sth. delicious out of basically nothing.
So, if you get a chance to stay at this property, don't look any further and do it!!!

Absolutely fabulous
What a wonderful villa set in an expansive private property on the coast just south of Mombasa.
Our family of 5 adults and 4 children stayed at the Waterside Villa for a week while discovering the local surroundings and culture.
The setup of the villa was perfect for us with 4 large bedrooms and 3 deck areas around the swimming pool.
Before arrival we had asked Mike (the owner) to arrange the shopping which was perfect.
Every day our food was prepared by Dan, Daniel and Mildred.
Mildred also provided laundry facilities which allowed us to travel much lighter than normal.
Also we were able to return home without the huge amounts of dirty wash that usually ends the holiday!
Dan was always enthusiastic and willing to cook using as much locally sourced fish as possible.
He took great pleasure in the challenge of preparing a birthday cake for one of the children which was wonderful.
Internet is arranged using 3G dongles or sim cards which suited us perfectly.
The swimming pool was kept clean and was wonderful for the children.
Mike and all his staff have created a true sanctuary with attention to the smallest details paramount.
We also received excellent advice and tips to visit local workshops and a memorable safari together with Southern Cross Safaris.
We would definitely recommend the villa to everyone.

Wonderful Experience
Our group of two families stayed at Waterside Villas this last holiday season and had a great time.
We were 4 adults and 6 children and found the Villa to be wonderfully set up.
The villa is actually two similar units on either side of the pool with a great eating area and lounge overlooking the pool.
The setting is great on the coast and with a beach accessible right off the grounds.
The staff was very attentive and Daniel our chef did a fantastic job.
The fisherman came each day with squid, prawns, snapper etc.
Daniel prepared it based on our wishes, though his "swahili style" quickly became our favorite.
The indoor and outdoor spaces are both beautiful and comfortable and make for many great areas to read, play a game, chat a little, or take a nap.
THis was a great setup and would love to return. thanks for everything.

Some friends and I booked out this villa for a week in June.
It was the perfect place to relax, chill out, and a great base from which to explore Diani and the surrounding area.
Mike (the owner) is a gracious and accommodating host.
The staff were excellent and took great care of us.
Helpful, friendly, courteous and discreet.
The chef is excellent and worked wonders with all the ingredients we bought from the local supermarket.
The staff were also able to source fresh seafood from the local fishermen, which was delicious.
The villa design is unique and a creation of Mike's own imagination.
The rooms are all very spacious and comfortable.
The villa has lots of day beds scattered around the place, so you are never short of a place to crash out with a book and a nice cool drink.
The pool is the centre-piece of the property and has a split level design overlooking the gardens and the ocean.
From the villa, you can walk down to the beach but access is limited at high tide so bear this in mind.
We had a fantastic stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back or recommend to friends and family.
