If you want to experience the southern coast of Kenya, you better do this from a cottage/villa
In case you don’t want to spend your vacations in a filled tourist hotel, you should look for a cottage/villa that is for rent. There are tons of those at the south coast of Kenya, for example at Diani Beach. The location is excellent for visiting all of the important sights, beautiful beaches and marine parks. Even a safari trip is nearby and waiting for you.
In case you do not want to spend every day of your vacation trip outside, you will find a big pool next to your cottage/villa which invites you to take a swim or have a barbecue party next to it.
A cottage/villa at Diani Beach is just perfect to get to know the country and the people
If you pick a cottage/villa instead of an hotel room, you decide yourself for cooking the meals yourself and being on your own in your own house. This way you can take a walk on the local market to buy some food you need to prepare the dinner.
This will lead to contact to the natives and you will find out about the fresh foods, the awesome meat and the green vegetables Kenya got to offer.
For this occasion, you can invite your neighbors to a barbecue or another form of dinner. This gives you the chance to make new friends and meet people you can spend your vacation with.
If you rent a cottage/villa, there are no people in the room next door you need to worry about and you can start to feel like home.
