“Best lodging ever”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Agnes took good care of us from arriving to leaving Kenya. When we arrived to Moi airport there was the promised taxi driver to take us to Diani. It was five in the morning when we got to villa punda milia and there was water and a gift wating for us (thank you Agnes). First thing I did was I caryed the bags to hall and took my clothes off and went to pool. The villa is in the fenced area that holds about 20 villas and you have to go thru the gate that is watched 24/7. Felt very safe. The bedrooms didn't have any bugs bothering at night. Okay that staf that we had; Omari: thanks, the pool and yard was always in good shape. Michael: you kept the house so clean and even washed our laundry! And Robert: we eat wonderful dishes and some local specialities, he also took us to foodstore and kept very good care of us. This was the first place ever where we thought going back (we usually don't go same place twise). The villa was absolutely best ever with your own pool not queueing with others. The beach is just across the street few hundred meters. We tried all the transport methods taxi, tuktuk and matatus, they were all good. Just perfect.

Agnes and the staff at the house made it very comfortable. I ran into some problems at first on arrival. Agnes prompt response to resolve this was very impressive. Take advantage of the chef Robert, his cooking skills are impressive. Omari the landscaper and Michael the house help are very courteous. This house is a must visit.

Wonderful stay in Villa Mapenzi with private pool and close to the beach. Everything was perfect.. only a little minus that the kitchen was a bit dirty.

Thank you Carolina, you are most welcome again:) excuse us for the dirty utensils left in the sink, this was a miss-up from staff. This has been sorted and we have ensured this will not occur again. Kitchen is always clean:)
