What a view!! This property sits on the edge of the very lovely Diani Beach. The beach is beautiful with great surf and low key vendors. There are several restaurants along the beach that are an easy walk from the property. The staff is kind and helpful. The bedrooms and outside areas are very nice. The grounds and pool are...

Dear Brad, Thank you so much for taking the time to write your lovely review. We have noted your comments on things which were not so pleasing. Yes doors and windows regularly swell in the steamy atmosphere and even umbrellas take their toll. All has been done and new umbrellas in place. Hope you will spend another holiday with us....

When the advert says "on the beach" you expect it to be close. Baharini is REALLY on the beach, all of 3 steps away down to the white coral sands and the Indian Ocean. Or if you prefer, 3 feet to a beautiful swimming pool which was lit at night! Fantastic cottage, everything that you need for a relaxing stay....

Management response:

So many thanks for your lovely comments and many thanks to for being the perfect guest! We are looking forward to you coming back to share the beautiful sunsets and a glass of wine in the evening.

Paula and her husband have done a wonderful job with this place. Baharini Pool Cottage is conveniently located but also beautifully design, exquisitely built, perfectly equipped and properly maintained. The owners and staff...
