Our check IN policy allows to check IN before 13:00 if the cottage you have booked is ready or was vacant the previous night. In case the cottage has been occupied until the check OUT time 10:00 and we have an arrival, we will allocate the new guest in an area where they will be able to change clothes, refresh and leave their luggage in a secure location while we do the necessary on their cottage, cleaning it and preparing it. As soon it will be ready the new guest will take possession of the cottage. Check IN is at 13:00
Our check OUT policy indicated that must be at 10am. This will allowed us to clean and prepare the cottage for the next arrival.
In case we do not expect an arrival and our guest would like to check OUT later on, we will then charge ½ of the cottage rate that they had paid, and would allow them to stay as far as 8pm.
Our prices are based on SELF-CATERING-DELUXE basis – means you provide your own food and drinks.

Due our sea front location, we made all doors and windows out of Mvule African hardwood with fix louvers to facilitate air crossing and enjoy the natural ocean breeze along the year. This is the reason why we do not have A.C in the bedrooms.
There is ceiling fans and mosquito nets in every bedroom, and we can provide standing funs if requested by our guest.
Diani Beach is very safe and we have a governmental unit “Tourist Police” that acts and is all time vigilant regarding to the security of our tourist in Diani.
We do also have our own security which is 1 day guard at the entrance gate, plus 2 night guards (at the entrance gate and at the swimming pool area ). They are patrolling at night for you to be very secure in our premises.
To complete our security we have contracted a security company, which provides an emerngy rescue team. All our askaris have an alarm device connected to the secruty company.
Unfortunately, we are still suffering power cuts in Kenya therefore, we have installed a generator that will supply electricity during the night in case of a power cut. It is manual so, it will take aprox. 5 minutes and your power is back.
Diani Beach has a reliable taxi service. We can call a taxi for you from reception. In case of an airport transfer or similar, we will do all arrangements prior to your arrival. There is also tuk-tuks (kind of motorize rickshaw) that can take up to 3 passengers. Noisy but very cheap can take you for shopping or touring around Diani. Boda-boda’s (small engines motorbikes) are also popular and available as they work as taxis.
We are located in one of the most beautiful beaches around the world ( Diani has been awarded several time as BEST 25 beaches of the world ). Beach walks are amazing and totally secure. We have the unavoidable “beach Boys” along the beach who will try to offer you all sorts of things, from fresh coconuts to safaris.
Galu Beach (south Diani) where Kusini Beach cottages is located, is a more residential area and we never had issues with beach boys.
