Monkey beach house was amazing. It was only 3 of us staying in this palace but it was too beautiful to pass up on. Hussein the chef, and Anna were amazing. The security around the place makes you feel safe, and they all tried to be accommodating. There are monkeys around, and there are mosquitoes, and other insects if this minor thing bothers you than it’s not for you. My friends and I were equipped to deal with this by bringing repellents and mosquito spray so we weren’t bothered. I would definitely come again! PS: that flamingo in the picture was our own that we brought. Does not come with the property. You can buy it at Amazon if interested.
I stayed at the Monkey Beach House with a group of five friends and it was the perfect Mombasa getaway! We felt incredibly safe as a group of five women and we were so thrilled with the location, accommodation, food, activities- everything! Hussein was our chef for the week and he was incredible. We will definitely be coming back!
Our family is in full agreement that there is no place better than the “Monkey House” on Diani Beach. Access to the beach is perfect. Maybe 30 meters to the beautiful white sand and clear blue Indian Ocean. Views from the house are amazing. Stunning sunrises and ocean views. The furnishings and character of the house are fantastic. Charming and comfortable with plenty of room. And the staff is wonderfully accommodating. The house is always kept clean and the chef is super talented. The owner was very easy to communicate with and responds to every question with clarity.
This is a quieter part of the beach, and even though there are a few “salesmen” on the beach trying to earn a living, you can navigate them with ease and they are not invasive. The grounds keepers are very helpful in keeping them away from the property.
Absolutely the best experience we could have hoped for, and the only place on Diani we will ever request.
Travelled as a group of friends, 5 couples.Though we arrived pretty late, we were received warmly by the team with cocktail juices and help in carrying our luggage.The website does not do the house justice, it's a massive beautiful two storey beachfront house with five bedrooms all ensuite.Our favorite hangout was first floor.
Hugh the owner is a pleasant chap, he gave us our space:) The staff are all very friendly, they went out of their way to accomodate all our needs.Special thanks to Hussein and Joseph for preparing extremely tasty meals and Anne for keeping our home spik and span.The only issue probably in high season would be the swimming pool, if all the other nearby units are occupied the pool might get a bit overcrowded.We never experienced that as we traveled during low season.Beach is to die for, white clear sandy beach! Would definitely recommend it and return there!
Following a journey with crazy jams at Miritini and the Ferry, landing at Monkey Beach House was just the burst into holiday mode my friends and l needed.
The welcome truly made us feel at home.
The property itself is beautiful, with swahili architecture and decor, and open spaces. We especially enjoyed the open balcony overlooking the pool and the beach, it was a joy to enjoy our meals there. The attention of Hussein and Joseph into preparing our meals and ensuring we had a good supply of local sea food was quite refreshing, thank you. Thanks too to Anne who cleaned up after us, and ensured we had a clean house.
My only regret is that we did not stay long enough, and thus, am definately coming back.
The large dinning space on the 1st floor overlooking the swimming pool and the beach. perfect setting for friends on holiday to hang out
Stunning location, beautiful house and wonderful staff! I'm happiest when I'm at Monkey Beach House.
