NOTE: Undergoing renovations on other half of the property Sept to mid-Nov, get a 12% discount for your stays that time.

The main house can take up to 12 people sharing double beds in the bedrooms and additional sleeping area with single and double beds in the loft area. The cottage can can take up to 8 people sharing double beds or in single beds in the bedrooms and additional sleeping in the loft area. A garden view couples room, all-ensuite is located at the back of the property and has a private open-air shower, and will take 1 couple. Have a look at the "Other things to note" section of this listing located below for a detailed description of the sleeping arrangements.

If the number of people in your party are more than 12, the cottage and/or external couples room will also be included in your rental. For large groups and those with more children than adults enquire with us on the exact number of your party and if you will be needing extra bed-space so that we can make arrangements. Ample seating space throughout the property, for upto 20 people.

A clear blue swimming pool, gazebo, and fully stocked kitchen, with staff to attend to your needs as desired.

The entertainment area boasts a large flat screen TV, hours of English movies on a 1TB drive, both recent Hollywood blockbusters and family favorites and classics. There is a Nintendo Wii U system for the young and young at heart loaded with games that make for hours of endless indoor fun. Family board games like Taboo, Wikipedia, and a Karaoke microphone that you can connect right to your phone for hours of fun singing round off the indoor entertainment, have a game night or two while you at Upani.

Please note that the AC is only in the 2 bedrooms in the main house and we are in process of installing additional AC's in the cottage and back couples room. All rooms have fans and this has served our guests well in the past, paired with the evening sea breeze that is directed indoors by the glass louvres on the windows. The mosquito nets mean you can sleep with windows open and enjoy natural AC from the amazing sea breeze at night from being so close to the beach.

ผู้เข้าพักใช้อะไรได้บ้าง

You will have access to the main house and, depending on the size of your group, the cottage and a standalone ensuite couples room. If you are a smaller group less than 12 people, there may be people booked in the cottage as well, so please check with me at your time of booking if you'd rather have the whole property to yourself. Both houses are separated by the over half an acre of garden that has lots of trees and leafy bushes, and they each have their own private lounge area, therefore you will have full privacy in any case.

The pool will be fully at your disposal and for your own private use if you are a larger group. It may be shared with the guests in the cottage if you are a smaller group.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

You and your group may prefer to have the whole property to yourselves and you may be 12 guests or less in your party. To make this possible, when booking please select the maximum number of 16 guests in order to book the entire compound. We request that you do this since the price point we provide for groups 12 and under is based on occupancy of only the main house and optionally the garden double room located at the end of the garden. This price is possible as the cottage may also be rented out at the same time. However we respect your desire for privacy and exclusivity and make provision for this option to make sure that your expectations are fully met.

The laundry room is available for any personal laundry you may have, due to electricity costs we provide one free load per week that you stay and if you would like more loads there is a surcharge. You may also tip the cleaning staff to do your laundry if you would like. The bed and bath linens will always be taken care of by the cleaning staff.

There will be a property manager to meet you when you arrive and to hand over the keys and give a brief orientation. The property manager will be on hand throughout your stay to help with anything you need. You will have complete privacy during your stay however, and please let us know the level of privacy you would need as we are flexible to make sure your needs are met. Cleaning staff and caretaker will be available daily, inclusive in the booking cost.

สิ่งอื่นที่ควรรู้

You may request a personal chef for whom you will pay 1,000 KES (10 USD) a day.

We have a natural thatched roof made with natural materials ("makuti') and local wood. For this reason, you may from time to time encounter little insects that like to live in this environment. While we make every effort to make the roof as inhospitable to them as possible, due to the climate they will seek out the cool inner sections and may also cause fine sawdust to accumulate here and there as they make themselves comfortable. We clean the house daily, twice a day in the some areas and also treat the house and compound as much as possible while also bearing in mind your safety as guests. Therefore we request that you do bear that in mind during your stay and if the natural roof may be a problem for you then think twice before booking. It has not been a problem for most of our guests in the past, and if you are familiar with coastal architecture then you will hardly notice it. Feel free to message me if you have any questions or clarifications that you'd like to seek.

We provide generator backup at night.

Following is a detailed description of the sleeping arrangements.

1. Bedroom 1 downstairs: 1 super-king size bed that sleeps 2, and is master ensuite

Before we can assure you of your booking and availability of amenities from our end, even if it's an instant book, we request that you submit a security deposit initial charge of $1 via a secure payment link that we will provide once you make your booking. A day to your arrival we will charge another $99 to your card, bringing the deposit fee to $100. This fee is returned or released in full not more than 5 days after you check out unless there is any damage,
and apart from normal wear and tear, or any breakage. We've almost never had to use the deposit so you can rest assured that this will be returned to you if nothing arises. Through the same link you may also select and pay for any extra services that you would like such as the chef, airport pickup, 10GB Wifi credit and so on.

We appreciate if no one smokes in the house. We also don't have pets and prefer not to have any pets in the house for your full comfort.

The lower level of the cottage is suitable for infants, however the upper level is open to the stairwell and not suitable for infants or children under 4 years of age due to risk of falling.

The place is very beautiful, and serene , the host winnie is wonderful and friendly, she made sure to help us in whatever way she could, the pool is great and relaxing, food was delicious prepared. Rooms are clean and cozy. Overall a great place for vacation with a big group of friends or family. We would definitely love to go back.

Beautiful property,but poorly maintained or rather bare minimum is being done . Broken beds, torn mosquito nets,which apparently had been reported before but never repaired and then owner acts surprised that staff did not show us one of the rooms in the back of main house which was totally dilapidated and thus wanted to charge extra for staff giving us access to lodging in the cottage. the ensuite bedroom in main house, has a/c, which never worked- in fact, did not even come on. In the cottage, the ac in one of rooms does not work, And this is despite the ac technician coming out both saturday and Sunday evenings. Water never got hot in any of the bathrooms , The wifi only worked Friday night out of the 3 nights. Was told 'wifi' only for checking email and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), therefore, credit depleted first night due to 'someone watching movie'. We have no problem paying for the advertised accommodations, but we did not get that. The staff is very helpful and did all they could within their means to make the stay pleasant. Great potential, needs attention to details in order to maximize income and should not be the other way around.

คำตอบจาก William And Jackie:
Interesting that despite your comment to me on arrival that the place was nice and clean, I quote your exact words here... "Home is nice and very clean" ( proof of which is available in my text messages feed) you have left such a review. It can only lead me to conclude that you are leaving this review because you do not want to pay the extra fees of $120 that were due because you occupied the extra cottage. So when you say "no problem paying" I beg to differ. It's consistent with your attitude the entire stay of not being willing to pay your dues, to the extent that you had refused to pay the dues for the chef on your first day, again previously agreed upon and only $10. This was AFTER you kept him there waiting for you for the whole day, saying you would come with the groceries yourself, AND arriving at 9pm to say you don't need him anymore. You can argue with me about what you agreed on to pay for your stay, but when you start to interfere with the livelihood of a chef, who does NOT have the means that the rest of us have, it's very telling about the kind of person that you are. Moving forward this means unfortunately that we won't provide a chef unless people make advance payment for groceries and his first day dues. Important to clarify, when you say beds are broken, you mean the ONE bed that had a broken under-beam, it is now repaired as of this morning and in perfect working condition, our most immediate previous clients damaged it without our knowledge. To say "mosquito nets are torn" without qualifying that it was ONE mosquito net is very misleading. I also head nothing about no hot water, which means you never brought it to our attention, which is a shame as we would have let you know to run the water for about 2 minutes till the hot water comes through, or alerted Winnie to turn on the heater. One thing you can never fault us on, when any of our guests have any issues, we normally request that you inform the staff, who respond promptly. As with most houses, any damages or issues if not reported by a client are difficult to be aware of. We also offer Wifi as a courtesy, not many vacation rentals do, due to the coast infrastructure, we provide 10GB of mobile wifi for your stay, and provide 2TB of blockbuster movies on an external disk for entertainment to avoid the need for movie streaming, we are also turning WIFI off from this point forward as it seems this courtesy is not well appreciated. You are welcome to buy more wifi anytime at an extra $10, which most people are happy to do, it amazes me that for that extra $10 you made such a fuss, but again it's consistent with your attitude the entire stay of not being willing to pay your dues. With regards to the AC, we are clear that it is not available in all the rooms. It is in one of the rooms in the main house, and 2 of the rooms in the cottage. And very rightly, you saw that this was a technical issue beyond our control despite our best efforts to fix it. I have now turned off WIFI on our listing, it is no longer available on the property as inclusive. As said previously, we are very clear that for groups upto 12, you only occupy the main villa. Our listing clearly spells this out, even outlining the exact sleeping arrangements. In text messages with you I explained the SAME thing and you understood it. You had agreed that your party would share rooms, and I clearly outlined the sleeping arrangements to you on text message. On arrival however, the group that were to share suddenly all occupied single rooms each. I also clearly explained that on your arrival, saying if you needed more space we make allowance for you to occupy the cottage for an extra fee as that means it cannot be rented out, which you agreed to, but did not honor. We are only able to offer such reasonable prices of approximately $29.5 a person a night in your case, by putting these restrictions in place. We have been known to upgrade clients if the other house on the property is not occupied, however, your argumentative nature simply did not allow us to discuss to a mutually beneficial conclusion. We have hosted many guests over the past years and your group was without doubt the most high maintenance and poorly planned one. It surprises me that this seems to be your first review AND first stay on Airbnb , as you seem to have made a habit of staying at places, not paying your dues, then creating a new account for the next unsuspecting host. I've alerted Airbnb on the possibility of the same and I'm sure they will investigate it further.

We had a nice stay and enjoyed very good food and nice swimming pool. Special thanks to the very good chef! We just had the feeling the service was a bit overpriced compared to other places in Diani.

William and Jackie were very attentive at communicating with us before and during our stay. The food, accommodations, and grounds were very average. Air conditioning only worked in two of the rooms, and the staff struggled to take care of a large group.

Thank you for coming Dan and Heather, we pride ourselves in being responsive to guests and appreciate your acknowledgement of this. We also always request that you let us know if anything is not working as it should, for example in the case of the AC, as we may be unaware of them breaking, it's a very simple thing to fix and I don't recall your mentioning it at all. We are always careful to let our guests know that we are not a hotel but a holiday rental and most of our guests have enjoyed staying at Upani very much for this exact reason as is evident from the previous reviews. We have the benefit to be able to offer personalized service including responding to specific needs as they arise.

Gorgeous place! The pool is lovely! The main house is really beautiful. We loved the property; the couches to relax on, the outdoor fans, the pretty pool, the garden with trees and flowers, the traditional style house with nice decorations. The only concern really came with the chef. Skip booking the chef. He really can't prepare the food sent to us on a sample menu. Basic things only like a plain egg and grilling a simple burger. He was at times late, arrive to prepare a meal an hour later than asked. He's not really capable of following a recipe, multiplying the quantities for the number of people and purchasing ingredients needed on his own. On a positive note, when we contacted Jackie about the problems with the chef, she replied quickly and was helpful. The house is close to many wonderful ocean front restaurants. Just dine out or buy your own food and cook yourself, if you are up for that. We appreciated having transport to the airport arranged for us. The house is really only a 3 minute walk to the beach, which rocks! The beds are soft and protected with nets. All in all, we would recommend this property for your stay in Diani beach!
