“We Loved it!! Our stay at Marula Cottage was simply amazing. The cottage was nothing short of gorgeous with incredible and unobstructed views of the pristine beach and open waters. Kathrin and Joe truly went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. We really could not ask for better hosts. Their staff were very pleasant and helpful as well. It was a real treat to stay here. We’ll definitely be back!”

“Truly one of the best places that I have found on the Kenyan coast. The cottage is very stylish with panorama views over the Indian Ocean. It is located on one of the best parts of the beach and away from the bigger hotels so has lots of privacy. The outside deck has a small but really nice little pool and the breeze from the ocean makes the deck a great place to hang out. The staff are lovely and the chefs were good. Joe, the owner, welcomed us very well and was very easy to communicate with prior to our arrival. I would love to come back to this place soon!”

“Everything about this place is perfect – decoration, location, space, view, etc. What made our stay even better was Kathrin’s warm hospitality – we did not have to worry about anything. Also, the house staff were all very nice and hospitable. Dorcas, chef de cuisine, was incredibly gentle and cooked delicious breakfasts for us. All-in-all, our stay was just perfect. If you go to Diani, I definitely recommend Marula Cottage.”
