Beautiful, individually designed en-suite room located on the first floor of the house set in earth tone colours.

Hob House is owned and run by myself - Kelly, and my husband Peter. 'Hob' directly translates to "Love" from Arabic,and sets the stage for a space of tranquil peace and serenity. We both wanted to create a place for our guests that is inviting, warm and safe. Over the years we have both travelled in many countries and stayed in many hotels and local entities that have not been of a good standard or alternatively have been 5 star carbon copy hotels.

The idea for Hob House was borne out of a joint frustration to have something for travellers that was not a hotel feel but still catered to the needs of travellers and business people. Mindful of the needs of our clientele Hob House was created. Our idea of creating a space where we can welcome guests to a warm, elegant and safe family environment but still cater to the needs of the business community has been paramount in the way we have set up Hob House.

We are in Kitusuru which is one of the oldest and most charming of the Nairobi suburbs and also in close proximity to most restaurants. We are 20 mins by car from the Giraffe centre and the Elephant orphanage as well as the Karen Blixen Museum and coffee shop.

We are 10 minutes from all major shopping centres and 10 minutes from great walks and cycling in Karura forest. We are 20 minutes from downtown and can arrange day outings for you as well as safaris and orphanage visits.

Our home is warm, inviting and filled with good energy. We have seven bedrooms all ensuite. We serve a full breakfast and can provide dinner and lunches when booked early in the morning. Our food is organic (either right off our garden or bought at organic markets).

There is a private dining room and a beautiful garden where you can also relax and enjoy a quiet lunch on a sunny day.

This is an on-going labour of love for both of us and as it evolves, we welcome you to participate in and share our dream space and at the same time we will try make every effort during your travels in East Africa to make your stay a memorable one. Karibu Sana (welcome)! We look forward to meeting you and sharing our place with you.

It was an unforgettable experience. Such a cozy and beautiful house with such warm hospitality and amazing food! My new-wed wife and I enjoyed Hob House tremendously.

How does one describe the perfect 'homecoming'? The entire household at the doorstep enveloping us (five adults and three children) in the warmest welcome one could ever hope for, anywhere. During the next couple of weeks, Peter, Kelly, Edith and everyone else connected to Hob House went out of their way, many times beyond anything any of us had ever experienced before,to ensure our utmost comfort, satisfaction and care. In between various other excursions, mini safaris and visits with friends, The Aburis were extremely engaging hosts and we had interesting, fascinating wide-ranging conversations informed by the depth and breadth of their personal and professional backgrounds, together with their wish for their lovely Hob House to be a haven of peace and joy in a bustling, rapidly growing Nairobi. If it is up to any one of us, we will be back to Hob House sometime in the future. We all give our highest recommendation. Asanteni sana!
