“Absolutely Stunning”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Visited here for a couple of days with my family of 6 and it was our best experience on the trip to Kenya. Absolutely stunning property, close to the beach, a well equipped kitchen, TV, Entertainment system, Music system, Superb wifi, a beautiful swimming pool and the most wonderful staff. Also there is enough room for 6 to 8 people in case you need it as the space is there in plenty. Easiest 5\5 i have given here.

“Oasis of peace and comfort”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

How can you review a place which feels like home? Villa Raymond was a dream, and what a beautiful one. When we had started looking for a place and saw the reviews we wondered how a place could have a perfect 5 star rating. Now I know why!

2 days was just not enough. We were a family of 6 and we had the most comfortable stay! Since we were vegetarians we were very happy to be able to cook and the place had all possible things needed to cook an Indian meal, including a rolling pin!

The beach can be accessed via taxi or tuk tuk. Since we went at the fag end of the monsoon season the beach was not at all crowded and we felt like we had a private beach.

The villa has excellent staff and 2 amazing dogs (one of whom I wasn't able to meet). Truly appreciate all their help and time.

Where do I start talking about how well designed the villa is? And how amazingly and with love it's been decorated and every item of the house has a thought about it. Multiple seating areas, super comfortable chairs, two dining areas, one area for barbecue, amazing bathrooms, seriously I can go on and on.

Basically what I'm saying is, if you are planning a trip to Kenya, do plan a trip to the south coast and stay here. It's just a home away from home.

Pro-Tip: Fourty thieves is the best stretch of beach there. Don't even think of going elsewhere.

P.S- We got complimentary laundry done! And an excellent welcome smoothie.

“Wonderful Stay!!”
Reviewed 19 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Villa Raymond is definitely one of a kind places. It looks even better in person than the pictures show and the pool is definitely one of the best parts of the villa. The staff are amazing, from Boniface the manager, to the grounds keepers and we also hired a chef who made literally the best cuisine Diani has to offer. It is a short distance from Forty Thieves and there are plenty of places nearby to do water activities like Jetskiing. will definitely be back here!

“Charming private villa with great facilities and services”
Reviewed 24 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The decor is amazing, very unique setting and charming layout, exactly like pictures and even better (we had to take time to just admire the details in construction and decor!). Perfect for a group of 2-4 people. Chefs could be arranged for 2200 KES per day + costs of ingredients required for requested meals. We did that for one day and they were amazing, delicious food and great presentation, definitely worth it. Our contact person (Anita) was very responsive and helpful, made coordination very easy. A manager and house help are around all day for questions / help, but you could ask them to leave for more privacy. Security is good with cameras outside bedrooms and helpful and friendly guards on the gates. We loved that the house had several board games which made the stay more fun!

One thins to note is that its a bit far from the beach, would need a taxi / boda to access beach and most restaurants and bars, which adds to costs. Also no drinkable water, have to bring your own upon arrival. Also note that electricity cost is 15$ per day which is not always quoted in the per night rate, make sure to check if it is / add it otherwise.

Your age range 18-24
