Good day, I’m Linzi

About me

I’ve been using SleepOut since the early days.

Hi, I was born and brought up in Diani Beach and Kenyaways is our family home. My dad borrowed money off his dad to buy the property in the late 50s. Then, there was no road and he had to get there by boat. He started Kenya's first dive and windsurf school, which was alot of fun but not very successful. 40 years later, I had discovered kitesurfing and my first job after leaving school, was teaching people to kitesurf at the hotels in Diani Beach. So in 2008 I converted our family home into a guest house. My parents now live in a cottage next door enjoying the social aspect of the business but they are now fully retired. After nearly 10 years managing Kenyaways, I now have a baby and have moved to Dar es Salaam with my husband for his work. Kenyaways is now is the capable hands of Steven who has been promoted to Manager and is now running the show. I am still very much involved doing office work, marketing and reservations from my home office in Dar. I hope you have a wonderful stay and spread the Kenyaways love.

The services were poor, the room not clean - initially we had requested for Torch which was not available and instead got checked into a pool view room. Would have been nice to pay for the hotel organized transportation together with all other payments - upon checkout instead of prior. We didn't like the experience at all and checked into another hotel after a few hours.

Fantastic! It was better than what I saw online. The location is great. It's perfect for if you want to just chill-out and be away from it all. Nothing I can fault.
