The best ever holiday experience of our lifetime
Haans is a genial host who takes pride in providing a natural and healthy atmosphere in his villa. He has a very pretty chef ,Ketery, who cooked us amazing healthy meals. The houseboy, Hesborn , keeps the place tidy and does the washing and ironing to a dedicated level. The beach is close about 300 meters .I will write a further fuller rewiew when I get home.
We were very happy to host you! You were nice, open minded and interesting people, who loved and appreciated our service, what made also ourselves very happy. Always welcome again! Thanks for staying with us! All the best!
Perfect getaway! Highly recommend it.
My family and I stayed here for a week and we absolutely loved it.The house is very beautiful, the pictures really don't do this place justice. All together there are three rooms; two rooms down stairs and one great room upstairs. There are 4 beds, 2 twins and 2 queens.There is only one bathroom but it's got dual sinks and it's a pretty good size. There is also a fully equipped kitchen which we loved.There is a resident turtle who's usually roaming the yard, I named him Leon the lone turtle. Along with Leon you can expect to see the owners two little dogs who showed up for every meal and made for great company. There is no tv or radio in the house,but that didn't really bother us. The house is just a few minutes walk away from the beach. Many of the restaurants and bars are just a short drive away we personally didn't have to drive far to get to anything. The owners Hans and Njeri are a very kind and down to earth couple. My family and I truly enjoyed their company.
If you are considering coming to Mombasa I strongly recommend the Lions Den; I know I will definitely be staying here again.
Thanks for your nice comment, we appreciate!
We will use that name for our turtle from now on. And another small puppy joined us.
You are very much welcome back!
We stayed at Villa Benita a week with our two children, the house is very nice and comfortable with everything you need.
Hans the owner a true gentleman, he was always very helpful and courteous. He often accompanied to the grocery store, one time evening, invited us to drink an aperitif on the terrace for sunset.
Do not book the Safari before; Margit a friend of Hans made us spend two unforgettable days, she does internal roads with the legendary Land Cruiser, where you can see the real Africa!
On the way back from Safari Hans and Theresa made a surprise at the guys, a swimming pool in the garden ... The child was crazy!!
Alan the cook always very clean and prepared delighted us with his dishes.
The beach is very nice and it's possible to play kitesurf ... about 300 meters from villa there is the kiteobsession school, Goodlucky is the owner, where I left my equipment.
If you want to stay out of the tourist circuit but with all the amenities .... do not hesitate.
Thanks a lot for staying with us! You also enriched our time while here with us. Thanks for your comments! We are looking forward to see you soon again!
Teresia & Hans
Diani Beach private residence
With the owner and his wife living next door to this lovely property, we felt the best of care and attention during our 3 month stay as well as the enjoyment of their company during our long stay. With the most kind and helpful houseman attending to our needs 6 days a week, we never wanted for anything.
The house is situated on an exquisite piece of property in a fully secured and guarded neighborhood. There was never a time we felt unsafe. In addition, a 7 night a week guard added to our comfort leaving us to sleep comfortably on the mosquito netted bed with excellent pillows and sheets.
Although very warm this time of year we were always able to sleep at night. Our days were spent outside on the veranda, when we weren't out and about, watching and listening to the wildlife surrounding us; monkeys, birds and bush babies at night.
The kitchen and bath are well equipped and if we needed any kitchen utensils or gadgets, the owners we quick to supply our requests.
This property is definitely intended for nature lovers and those seeking amazing scenery in the area and with the Indian Ocean nearby. There are dozens of restaurants and resorts with restaurants within a short distance where we dined 2 to 3 nights per week. The prices for dinner were ridiculously low, the food fresh and the service impeccable. There's a full sized grocery store at about 12 minutes away stocking almost anything you'd want. The prices were reasonable.
Within a 2 minute walk is a produce stand where fresh produce arrives at 12:30 each day. No chemicals or pesticides are used in the growing process which appealed to us.
Three months is a long time in one location. As world travelers, we often stay for these long periods to experience the people, the culture, the wildlife and the vegetation. We loved everything about this area.
Of course, we went on safari for a dream of a lifetime experience taking over 600 photos we'll cherish forever.
These fabulous hosts, household helpers and property will provide you with a dream holiday befitting the pickiest of travelers. Keep in mind if you are one that prefers air conditions and the utmost in conveniences, this experience may not be fitting. For us, it was ideal.
Thank you for being our guests for 3 months! We also enjoyed the time with you and to listen to your experiences.
We wish you great people a nice time at your next destinations!
Take care and all the best.
Wir kommen wieder
Wir verbrachten 1 Woche in dem schönen Haus.Das war viel zu kurz.
Gefallen hat uns auch die Lage weil es nicht weit vom Strand war.Wir haben uns alle sehr wohl gefühlt.Bei unserer Ankunft fehlte eine Kaffemaschine.Kein Problem für Hans.Er brachte in ein paar Minuten eine gute Kaffeemaschine in die Küche.
Wenn wir nach dem Frühstück zum Strand gegangen sind wollten wir unser Geschirr spülen wenn wir zurück vom Strand sind.Aber als wir zurück kamen war alles schon fertig.Sogar die Betten waren gemacht.Das hat uns sehr gefreut.
Hans ist ein so freundlicher und sympatischer Mensch.
Er hat uns sogar zum Grillabend eingeladen.Wir haben schon lange nicht mehr so gut und viel gegessen.Danch saßen wir am Feuer und haben über alles mögliche geplaudert.Es war ein richtig toller abend.
Am nächsten Tag war eine frische zerteilte Kokosnuss in der Küche zu finden.
Danke Hans für die schöne Zeit in Lions zuhause
Das nächste mal bleiben wir aber länger
liebe Grüße Andrea
wir kommen wieder
Jambo lieber Hans
Schade das wir nur 1 Woche in diesem schönen Haus waren.Das nächste mal wird es aber länger.Es war sehr angenehm und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.Hans ist ein sehr freundlicher und netter und ein sehr sympatischer Mensch.Er hat uns zum Grillabend eingeladen und ich muß sagen ich habe schon lange nicht mehr so viel und so gut gegessen.
Es war auch intressant mit Hans am Feuer zu sitzen und über alles mögliche zu Plaudern.Ach wie vermisse ich das doch alles jetzt.Es war so schön.
Wenn wir gegen abend vom Strand kamen wollten wir unser Geschirr spülen.
Aber es war immer schon alles fertig und die Betten waren auch gemacht.
Sogar eine frische zerlegte Kokosnuss war für uns in der Küche zu finden.
Bei unserer Ankunft war keine Kaffeemaschine in der Küche.Aber alles kein Problem für Hans, in ein paar Minuten brachte er uns ein gute Kaffeemaschine.
Es war alles sauber und gepflegt.
Danke für alles.Wir kommen wieder.Aber dann für länger.
Ich freu mich schon
liebe Grüße Andrea

Your Holiday destination Diani Beach is located about 30 km southeast of Mombasa next to the Indian Ocean. Travel guides unanimously speak of the most amazing beach: smooth white sand and calm sea thanks to the coral reef sheltering it. The fishermen will be happy to take you out to the reef, approx. 1 km away, where you can observe the great variety of fish or explore sandbanks that appear during low tide.
In the vicinity, you can find three shopping centres, two very good hospitals and countless different restaurants, bars and night clubs.
You can catch a plane at the small airport in Ukunda, about 5 km away, which will take you to one of the nature reserves or to the capital, Nairobi.
The Shimba Hills national park, visible from the vacation home, is very recommendable for one-day safaris.
Another worthwhile one-day trip is the underwater world of the Shimoni Marine national park, which can be observed from a boat. You can enjoy the Indian Ocean from an ancient Arabic Dhou often accompanied by dolphins.
The city of Mombasa with its old Arabian trading port, the Fort by the name of Jesus and its old town full of narrow, winding streets and historic sites can be explored in one or two days and is perfect for souvenir shopping.
You should schedule several days for safaris in the more distant national parks (Maasai Mara, Tsavo, Amboseli, etc.).
Golf: You can reach the golf course Leisure Lodge in 10 minutes by car.
