As you drive into Warandale Cottages through the indigenous Diani forest, you may come across several species of wildlife including Bush babies, Grey Duiker, Dik-dik, Monitor lizards, Colobus, Vervet and Sykes monkeys. We do not recommend feeding the monkeys, any encouragement will soon lead to uninvited visits into your kitchen.

We have one, two and three bedroom self-contained cottages, fully furnished and staffed with a cook/house servant to provide the comforts of a private cottage. The local fishermen come to your door daily with ocean fresh seafood.

Our office is open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 4pm.

There are several shopping centres and local dukas nearby. A very well equipped hospital including dentist and a bank are also next door.


Warandale Cottages are situated approximately 25 km south of Mombasa at Diani Beach. The Cottages are sited on a coral outcrop between two of Dianis beautiful beaches.

Diani Beach

Kenya´s Indian Ocean coastline offers a wealth of exciting new experiences for the visitor; from the centuries old town of Lamu where the only form of transport are still the donkey and the dhow to the bustling modern seaport of Mombasa; from the thrill of of deep sea fishing, to the tranquility of walking the golden sands of Diani Beach.


A beautiful 9 hole golf course is just half a mile away – and along the beach one finds deep-sea fishing, scubadiving, wind and kite surfing, tennis, squash etc.

There are exiting African, Indian, Chinese, Italian and other special restaurants in the area. Most of these will provide transport.
