The tranquil setting makes the cottage ideal for a group or party of families looking for peace and serenity. Baharini has its own very special magic which makes it the perfect place to unwind and get away from it all.
This luxury, three bed-roomed cottage has been built under the shade of a Baobab tree to an unusual and attractive design with swahili roof. Panoramic views of the ocean can be seen all around and just a few steps across the garden brings you to the beach and the Indian Ocean.

Beach loungers can be found for your comfort and leisure, under the palm trees.
Further down towards the beach you will find a separate Bar and Games Room where you can play table tennis, boules or just relax with a cold drink. This is the favourite spot for sun downers. As the light slowly disappears the sky and sea become awash with colour before dusk finally closes in. There is no better way to end the day.

This is a perfect house for people who want to fully relax and enjoy themselves. The house is basic but very nicely appointed, the staff are helpful and warm and the setting is magnificent. The house is perfect for families or groups that want tranquility rather than luxury. It is located on a beautiful stretch of beach and is within walking distance of basic services.

I have stayed with my family (husband and 2 adult children) at Baharini on Diani Beach several times, and will continue to stay there when visiting Diani Beach.
The location is outstanding! It is situated on a perfect piece of Kenyan Beach just south of Mombasa. The Cottage, with beautiful views of the ocean, is just a few steps from the beach, which is long, with white sand and beautiful warm sea.
There are shops and restaurants within walking distance by road, and restaurants, beach bars and water sports facilities by beach.
The very friendly owners of the cottage live in a house on the same plot, which means there is always someone there to help and advise the visitors if needed.
There is a daily cleaning, turn down, and laundry service to the cottage, and a cook can be hired on request. Local fishermen bring their daily catch to the cottage for purchase which means that you can eat fresh fish and seafood each day.
The cottage and bar/games banda are casual, charming and relaxing, but with every comfort provided for. It is very quiet and peaceful there with beautiful birds and resident monkeys in the garden.
We love to go there as we feel we have the best of everything there... location, privacy, peace and freedom to do what we like, when we like with first class service thrown in!

We have stayed here for a week each time over the last two New Years and it is a "home away from home". The location is brilliant not only because its on the best beach in Kenya but its close to a shopping centre so getting provisions is easy and entertainment at 40 thieves is just a short walk down the beach for our son and daughter who are in their twenties. The cottage is clean and the staff efficient. The whole experience is one of relaxation and being on the beach with the warm sea just waiting to be enjoyed.
Paula and Colin have built the cottage and the bar to a fine standard and have kept it that way. We can't wait until we go again and this time we are spending 2 weeks there over Christmas and New Year and will have the added bonus of the recently added swimming pool for when the tide is out.

My husband and I spent a wonderful 5 days in this cottage. We found it very private and relaxing. The hosts and staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were spotless and kitchen had everything we needed. The staff organised fresh fish, lite our bbq and cleared away and we hardly noticed them! The pool is fantastic with amazing sea views (we spent most of our time there)retreating to the cool cottage balcony occasionally. Diani itself has lots to do but we mostly popped out to restaurants. Great shopping center a 2 minute walk away with everything we needed.I really cant reccomend it enough. We left feeling utterly refreshed and spoiled.
