I noticed their sign yesterday, its at the turn off for the back road into the Shanzu beach area, the one where Volume nightclub is at the end of the long bend between Bamburi beach and Shanzu. I haven't been down that road for a while so I don't know exactly where they are

Nicki,

Virtually every road here is a dark road, but the main road in the asrea round that turn-off has no buildings on it all. They start a couple of hundred meters towards Shanzu, after the Old Shimo La Tewa Rd turn off, where the big trucks turn off for the back road to Bamburi Cement, then the buildings start on the inland side of the road. Volume is only about 100 yards down the road, the road then splits into several tracks, I don't know which Sunsweet is on or how far from Volume it is. I couldn't see anything that looked like it from the main road but I was on my motorbike so only had a quick glance. But in its not an area I would suggest for a lady staying alone, unless she had a car or was happy to use as taxi every time she went out at night.

Never heard of Punda Milia, but according to Google its 200m from Diani beach, sorry South Coast isn't my area of expertise

Hi,

Punda mulia can be accessed through small road right side of shanzu to volume or just before chiefs pumb, stage known as water is nearer if you walk, then you will see th punda sign post, its a niece quiet small place with small garden and small pool. You can either get a room with utensils , cooker etc, or just a room. they also provide meals is you do not wish to cook, their meals very reasonable ie a plate of rice and chicken less than 400 ksh, breakfast was 250, the time i was there that is 2years ago. Please do ask if the neighbor dog which was at times noisy still there, otherwise was the best cheap place. An apartment was around 3000 during that time, normal rooms 2000ksh. They also have a small bar, drinks normal, ie beer 200khs, soda 50. the rates could have changed, am a Mombasa resident but do at times used to go there. Security was also good,but ask about safe if they have. owner, German lady and kenyan man lives close by the place. I went to sunsweet , which is on the volume disco turning road, when they had just opened, i didn't go to the rooms, but they looked big , swimming pool also bigger, i di not get in because i was looking rooms for guys from Nairobi, but the rate i got at the gate could not go with my clients request so i just turned back from the gate. Otherwise it looked clean and safe too. will let you know is i pass around there soon.
