Swahili Cottage, Tiwi: 4 Guests
Sitting next door to Lofty Cottage is the delectable Swahili Cottage, with 2 en suite double bedrooms both and fully equipped kitchen, living room and a veranda set up for complete relaxation. A second upstairs veranda gives stunning views of the ocean. Swahili Cottage shares a swimming pool with Lofty Cottage and a short walk through the garden lies the blue perfection of the Indian Ocean.
To the north of Diani beach sits the little-known Tiwi beach, an old-school beach location with few hotels and sparkling white beaches. The reef protects the rock pools, full of crabs and fish and fun stuff for you to explore at low tide. Tiwi remains a precious throw-back to the old days of the Kenyan coast – a piece of paradise to lose yourself for a few days and re-centre, drink tea at sunrise and talk to your house manager about the best locally caught fish to order for your lunch, then kick back and watch the ocean. There’s really nothing else to do until it’s time for a cold sundowner after an evening stroll along the perfect beach as the waves turn purple and the stars come out.
