          If you want an affordable accommodation with great atmosphere that has a fun jungle vibe, and is close-by to the beach, employs friendly staff, and serves good well-priced food, look no further. Stilts is great!

          I think you can just take a local matatu to Diani Beach. Stilts is located quite central in Diani.
