We are just back from Mombasa where we spent a wonderful time at Divine Dove. We were seven (three adults and four children) and had a lot of place for all of us. The house is fully equipped and well furnished, it's a quiet place where you can enjoy either the swimming pool or the sea. It's really a dream come true. The staff is very kind and the cook really good, all were really helpful, and the owner came to visit us two times to see if everything was ok and helped us choose activities around. Sre we will be back if we can!!

I was looking for the ideal place to take my family and spend a memorable holiday on the Kenyan coast when I stumbled across this property and called Mrs. Joelle directly. From her positive voice, all the great information and description of her villa I had a feeling that luck was in my favor. On arrival we were greeted by the most friendliest team that had arranged everything for us. Dinner, beverages and all the comforts needed to start a 2 week relaxing holiday. The private villa on its own private property is situated on the most perfect white sandy beaches of the south coast without a person in sight. When the tide was in we made good use of the private pool. The evenings was spend eating delicious international as well as local dishes prepared by the villa private chef “Mbotela” who knows all the local fisherman (fish was on the menu quite often as per our request) and to end every unique day – a quick night cap on the balcony. The property is looked after by the most friendliest of staff from Ngoky who services all rooms etc to Simon and his team in the garden and security. Divine Dove is comfortable, well furnished and has everything necessary to make your holiday perfect and memorable. We have definitely found our new “home” in Kenya – and we will recommend it to anyone.

We were a party of nine. Spent a week at this splendid property. The owner was kind enough to provide transportation to and from MSA airport at no additional cost as well as the addition of two guests. The beach is truly spectacular. You do not have to worry bout corral or rock as you swim in the warm Indian ocean. You also do not have to worry about seaweed either as you have large swaths of the ocean to swim in that are corral and seaweed free. Galu is truly spectacular. The beach is not not crowded with people or beach boys. The white sand on the beach is very quite a site. The staff were very good and hospitable. Mbotela the cook makes excellent sea food. We stocked up on groceries when we arrived and lived of fresh sea food caught by the local fishermen the rest of the time. We did not need a vehicle over our stay as we planned to spend the entire week on the beach and enjoy the surrounding sites. Motela would get us any additional gorceries when coming to work in the morning. We went snorkeling on Robinson Island as a we took a glass bottom boat tour. This is a must do. The fish and the corral is amazing. We went on a couple fishing trips with the local fishermen with my kids aged 8,6 and 4 on their locally assembled catamarans. My kids wanted to move here permanently. Visited Chalu Island which is close by. Quite a site seeing the Colobus monkeys there The house is very well kept an furnished. The property grounds are very spacious and has ample space for the kids to play. The beach is only a few steps away and directly in front of the property. Kids spent most of the time in the pool or on the beach making sand castles and collecting shells. We felt like we were treated like kings and queens over our stay. I feel like we have become a part of the Divine Dove family. God willing we will be back the next time we are in Kenya. I think I have found the place to retire when I hang I hang my boots.

We had a lovely week in your beautiful house. Botello and Njoki took very good care of us and made our stay unforgettable. Breakfasts, lunches or dinners were a feast, which we enjoyed. As well as we enjoyed the birthday party with the dance group. Botello is a very good host and cook. The people of the whole staff was very friendly. Thank you for using your beautiful family house.

We spent a long week-end away of hectic Nairobi in this great place, and we simply loved it. Our daughters spent the entire stay in the warm pool, while we enjoyed the relaxed ambiance, the superb view of the ocean, and the excellent food prepared by the cook! Clean, secure, nicely furnished, practical, in short, we'll be back!

Peace and Quiet
Peace and Quiet
A super house on a quiet stretch of beach - perfect for families or groups of friends. A lovely big, warm pool. 3 of the 4 rooms are air conditioned - and as it was so hot we needed that. All of the rooms contain double beds and mosquito nets, plus also one single bed. The bedrooms are very spacious. There were 3 good sized bathrooms and an outside shower for those coming straight from the beach. The cook was excellent. The fishermen brought fresh fish for us to buy everyday. There are plenty of friendly staff to keep the place clean and make you feel secure. The beach is perfection and the Indian Ocean divine. Thanks for a lovely stay.

The description was quite accurate regarding the location, amenities and facilities, the villa is even more beautiful when you get there. The property was very well maintained, clean and tidy. The personnel was so very kind to us and friendly, available for anything at any time. It's the perfect holiday for relaxing and having a good time on a wonderful, special white sand. Nobody was around except from you. TIPS: 1. Rent a car: you'll be independent and will not spend money over taxi! 2. Visit Aniello's Italian restaurant! It's very good and cheap. 3. Take some time off to book a massage at Uzuri SPA. You won't repent. EVERYTHING IS LESS EXPENSIVE THAN EUROPE/USA. Ask the proprietor for further information about activities, beauty treatments and safari. She's been quite polite and she always kept in touch during our stay.
