“A Beautiful, Peaceful, and Fun Beach Destination”
Reviewed 16 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Fantastic location, just a few steps from the beach. And a refreshingly quiet stretch of the beach at that, removed from big crowded and noisy resorts. Our kids had a great time in the pool, in the sand, and in the waves. The unit was very clean and tastefully decorated. It was so nice to have screens on the windows and A/C in the bedrooms! (The last place I stayed in Diani did not have this.) The staff (housekeeper and cook) were welcoming, helpful, and accommodating. The cook was very skilled and adaptable and had fresh seafood brought to our door at our request. Patricia (the owner) promptly responded to questions we had. No complaints. I found this place to be good value for what you get and would definitely come again and recommend to others.

“The best place to visit on the Kenyan coast!”
Reviewed 11 December 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Having spent many years visiting the Kenyan coast this is without doubt our favourite place. The apartment is great, has all the amenities you need, a fantastic pool and is right on the perfect beach. Wonderful, helpful staff and great cooking too. Full marks!

“Beautiful location, perfect views & excellent customer service”
Reviewed 29 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Malaika Nyumbani was a perfect location for our Diani Beach stay. Everything was taken care of from the pick-up from the airport, a list of typical food for our cook, and perfect customer service the whole way through. This is all not to mention the incredible view and location next to the beach and fun restaurants within walking distance. Everything about our stay was perfect -- we wished we had booked more days!

“Wondeful stay”
Reviewed 29 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had a wonderful time in Malaika. This is our third time in this compound, but the first time in this particular unit. We love the decor and finishes of the place. Everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Risper, the housekeeper, was lovely and so helpful, and the cook was great too. The food was delicious and he dealt with the fisherman and got everything we asked for. The pool and beach, and all the other staff were all fantastic. No complaints. Shopping was easy and close. I highly recommend a stay here.

“Absolutely Fabulous!”
Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I stayed at Malaika Nyumbani with family from overseas. The location is perfect! Literally steps to the beach and pool. The layout of the house was perfect with each bedroom having a bathroom. The living room is spacious and the outdoor patio was a wonderful place for us to dine and relax. The cook and housekeeper were very helpful and very easy to communicate with.
It was very easy for us to take a tuk tuk from right in front of the complex to town. The masseuse came to the house and was she was wonderful. She even organized a woman to come to the house for us to buy dresses and sarongs!
Patricia is a gracious host. She was very easy to communicate with before, during and after our stay. I highly recommend Malaika Nyumbani !!!

“I am home!”
Reviewed 20 July 2017 for a stay in May 2015

an amazing vacation,the beach is breathtaking,I,love to walk I always felt safe and at peace,the ocean is clean with gentle waves so safe for children and "oldies" like me.
what a bonus having a cook,unlike other vacations we have had I could really relax not having to worry about a menu or to cook and clean up.
the acomadation is spacious and ( courtesy of the housekeeper) clean ,it is tastefully furnished but allows for lounging and feeling at home.
having both the beach and pool provides options for families ( we had great fun with our grandchildren,one learning to swim so the pool was more to his liking . Hope to return at least once more!

“Little bit of heaven on earth,peaceful, tranquil.”
Reviewed 20 July 2017 for a stay in June 2015

We went to this complex in Galu prior to the owners purchasing this unit.
We watched this building being built, where they eventually purchase a ground floor unit.
It comes with a cook and a maid, who look after everything.
The fisherman come to the door each day with freshly caught seafood, where the cook bargains with them for your desired type of seafood, from freshly caught lobster, rock fish etc.
The setting is gorgeous, the pool has been expanded, very safe for children to swim, as usual, parents should be monitoring them for safety reasons.
The unit is immaculate, the sea is blue, so blue, better than the Caribbean.
The beach slopes gently with soft sand to the sea, very safe for children and adults to swim in the nice warm waters.
We can not say enough about this "little bit of heaven"
The children just love to boggy Board on the beach.
Just a great place to spend quality time with family and friends.
