We spent 7 wonderful days at Kilifi Bofa Cottages and loved every moment of our time there. From the time we arrived until the moment we left, Jackson (cottage caretaker) and Saj his wife (owners) were helpful, accommodating and just wonderful people to be around. They also greatly respected our privacy. Like the listing says, this cottage is in an excellent location. Just a short, absolutely beautiful walk to the gorgeous beach and short tuk tuk rides everywhere else. The cottage itself is spacious with a fully equipped kitchen (we loved cooking meals here!), hot water and comfy beds. Kilifi quickly became one of my favorite places and we'll definitely be back to stay at Kilifi Cottage again!

We just spent 5 days at this nice vacation house, a short walking distance from the beach in Kilifi. Nice house, simple but with all essentials one needs for a beach holiday stay. We walked to the beach every day, just 300 m and a nice walk, passing by the quiet Boabab Sea lodge hotel. Very nice white sandy beach, very clean, best swimming at higher tide as the the beach is very safe and therefore a little shallow for some distance. Just 4 souvenir shops at beach entrance, nice people. On weekdays you have the beach "for yourself". If looking for luxury accommodation and active nightlife, than one needs a bigger place and town, but we had a very enjoyable stay at this vacation house in Kilifi. Would go back anytime when around there again.

Our vacation at Kilifi Bofa Cottages was simply amazing. Kilifi is a hidden treasure in Kenya. As tourists flock to Mombasa, Kilifi remains quiet and peaceful. The cottages themselves were clean and well maintained. The plot is large and beautiful, and the beach that is a few minutes walk away, is simply spectacular. All in all, this vacation was extremely affordable, and undoubtedly memorable.

My niece and I stayed for a week, in August 2017, at the Chui cottage, of the Bofa Cottages in Kilifi. The cottage was very clean, well equipped, and totally functional. It is located in a large grass, tree covered, walled-in plot with a gate. There was a full-time caretaker. We felt very secure. The beach is a 3 - 4 minute pleasant walk away. The beach is awesome: white, white sand, palm tree lined, and clean. Between the cottage and the beach there is a hotel with swimming pools, bars, and a restaurant. We had a fabulous vacation, and are looking forward to returning when in Kenya next. I recommend this for anyone looking for a very reasonably priced, great beach vacation in Kenya.

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a few days and nights at one of the Bofa Cottages in Kilifi in summer 2017. What was remarkable was that we found the peace and quiet we were looking for to decompress after the very hectic and demanding trip to Madagascar. The cottages are extremely comfortable, relaxing and peaceful with all needed amenities. My wife and I took long walks in the area. When we wanted the beach, we walked about three to five minutes to a wide, pristine, uncrowded white sand beach for walks and swimming. A few times we rode a tuk tuk to the town and to eat at various eateries. At the same time, we could do some shopping at the local supermarket for nuts, cheese and crackers, water and drinks.

We had a fantastic stay at Bofa cottage and highly recommend it to anyone. We were a group of 7 and came down for the Kilifi New years Festival 2017/18. We arrived to a clean house with all the appliances we needed. The location is perfect; close to the beach and only a short tuk tuk ride to town. The cottage care take John was very helpful and owner Saj was very accommodating and assured we had a great stay. The cottage is great value and we will be sure to stay here again.
