“Great price/value ratio”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

Just a few days ago I stayed there for 6 nights. Katrina & Cyril are very helpful, the apartment is nice with fridge, hot shower (you need warm water because water comes from the mountains). To the start of Beau Vallon Beach it's around 5 minutes walking (don't forget a torch when you have dinner at restaurants at the beach or at local places). The location is ok but sometimes I would have preferred it to be right on the beach (eg enjoying the beach, going back to the guesthouse for a shower and then going out again) but I really enjoyed the place and I will definitely come back again. From the balcony of the yellow cottage you have a nice view to Beau Vallon Bay. Thank you again for a great stay. And if you ever come to Kenya, please check out Lamu!

Reviewed 3 February 2013

We stayed in Beach cottages for 4 nights in Bed and Breakfast option. It's really beautiful place, clean rooms and nice bathroom with hot water. The view from our room is exactly towards Beau Vallon beach... there is also small beach 15 meters from cottage, but we prefered to walk 10 minutes to the main beach.
There was complimentary water and juice in fridge when we arrived and free wireless. The owners are very friendly, gave as a free map with suggestions where to go and were helpful in everything. Breakfast is excellent - coffee or tea, juice, eggs as you like, bread (+ jam, butter) and 3 different sorts of fresh fruits. We really did enjoy.
Bus stop is just behind the front gate, closest small shop is 1 minute away, bigger one 5 minutes (in Bel Ombre). To the restaraunt area in Beau Vallon it's about 20 minutes walk (possible to go from beach and from road).
