“Relax and Unwind”
Reviewed February 13, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

I decided to celebrate my 60th birthday over a weekend in Diani with friends. This house, near to the beach, with a swimming pool and sleeping 10 people in 5 rooms, with an option to add beds if needed, was perfect.
The beds were beautifully made and large enough for a small family, but 2 in my bed was sufficient.
The house was large, airy and built in the traditional Swahili style, allowing the air to circulate.
The kitchen was huge and well equipped. However, please add a coffee pot/plunger and a toaster for our European breakfast.
We do enjoyed the large space that easily accommodated 10 people with outdoor daybeds and a bed swing that was very popular.
Eva, was the most polite and accommodating lady. Nothing was too hard for her. She contacted a wonderful chef who cooked my birthday dinner. It was delicious.
This place was heavenly and we loved every minute of our stay.
The journey there was long from the SGR. It would be wonderful to arrive to a few provisions of water and tea/coffee. Allowing visitors to relax before venturing out to the supermarket for provisions.
The shower downstairs between the 2 main rooms needs some maintenance. Water is sparse and hot water was insufficient.

“Perfect home for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed December 9, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Our 3 days at Villa Madinina were absolutely perfect. Lillian and Cherif, the owners, were in town from Germany and spent time getting to know us and showing us all around Diani Beach. The staff (Eva, Eddy, and Abdul) were welcoming and attentive.

The house itself is beautifully decorated and has everything you could need. The pool is perfect to escape the Kenyan heat, and the beach is only a 5-minute walk away. I would recommend Madinina a million times over!

“Fabulous Time at Villa Madinina”
Reviewed May 1, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The villa was spacious and plenty of room for the 7 of us, the pool was kept immaculately by Abdul and the garden and surrounding areas well maintained, plenty of crockery and cutlery. The housekeeper Eva was the best, she went the extra mile for us, nothing was too much trouble, I loved the fact that clean pillow cases were put on the bed pillows every day with clean sheets every 2 days or so, the furniture was a little tired looking but serviceable, transport to the shopping centre was by tuk-tuk and absolutely no problem they passed by every 30 seconds or so and cost's only a few shillings. The beach was near, a slight problem with beach traders hassling but the beach was stunning soft powder white sand and the amazing Indian ocean... just stunning. Would definitely book again next time we are in Diani.

“Perfect place for Vacations”
Reviewed March 31, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

I enjoyed the serene and relaxed atmosphere at Villa Madinina. The place is perfect for relaxing and unwinding. Everything about that place is nice. The pool is clean and the house is neat and well kept. Everyone is nice and hospitable starting from the owner, the housekeeper, the pool attendant/gardener to the chef. And the food, simply amazing!!
