We had a really good stay. The environment at Shambani is great and the cottage we were given was spacious. The monkeys were a bit problematic though. We appreciated the assistance from SleepOut and will be using them again.

Overall our stay was okay. Only problem was that the place is a little run down and neglected. They could definitely take better care of the place and do some landscaping at the very least. Plus the resident dogs are not nice at all and no one is really taking care of them. The pool was probably the nicest place in the whole compound.

The location was perfect as it is close to the beach. The cottages themselves were nice and it was great that they had A/C and the pool was super. The only drawbacks was with regards to the cook and the cleanliness. The food made by the cook who was made available to us was just there. Nothing to write home about. The cleanliness was wanting and the cleaners themselves looked unkempt. All in all, our stay was great.

Lovely place, quiet, peaceful... beautiful clean pool, beautiful gardens. Very short walk to the beach (although it may not feel like it in the midday sun!!) We will be coming back!

Our stay was fantastic. Had a small problem with the internet but this was fixed in under 15mins. Apart from that, everything was perfect.

Shambani cottages were great. We were made to feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful homes, gardens and surrounding area. I'm already looking at returning!

We really enjoyed our 5 night stay at the cottages. When we arrived it really was like we expected, maybe even more beautiful than the pictures online represented. When the electricity switched off, they turned on the generator. The ladies cleaned our room and did our laundry. The cook helped us to get rid of one of the monkeys in our cottage. All the staff were really very friendly and helpful. Though at the end of the road, 5-10 min by tuktuk to the supermarket, we enjoyed the tranquillity and the silence. Also, you just need to cross the street and you will reach the beach within 5 minutes.

The house is beautiful and the staff were very good - helpful, accommodating and pleasant. There were a couple of reasons check out early though. 1. We tried working out the wifi situation but I was working a lot from the house and found it very difficult to work well with such intermittent wifi. 2. Phone connection. I could not get phone connection in the house. Again, it was intermittent and since I was working, I found it very difficult. If I was there on holiday, I would welcome such bad phone connection. 3. Ruined clothes - A couple of my shirts were ruined from the laundry. Though the house and staff were excellent

Shambani Cottages is an amazing place, set in a lush garden in the South Coast. We enjoyed interacting with the staff who are hospitable and always ready to help. Diani beach is just a minute-walk from the cottage and passes as a convinient place to hang out. The pool is also secluded and provides the much needed privacy. Can't wait to go back

It was great. Apart from the check-in process where it seemed the staff had not been informed of our arrival in advance, we had a lovely stay. The staff were fast in preparing the place for us and were good.

Extremely friendly place with very helpful staff and impressively service minded. As a mother alone with three children I felt very safe and well taken care of. Beautiful garden, it feels like you are in the jungle. The children fully enjoyed the swimming pool and our house was comfortable and spacious. We will definitely come back!

It was amazing! I love this place. Absolutely fine. The caretakers Salim and Binti were fantastic. It was very peaceful. You're in the trees and lots of flowers in the garden. 2-minute walk to the beach. Pool was great to avoid getting hassled by the beach boys.
