Macushla House is a small independent bed and breakfast hotel in the Karen suburb of Nairobi, 20 minutes' drive from the city centre. This property, which was home to Karen Blixen, is on the doorstep of Nairobi National Park.
This lodge-style home offers peace and comfort with facilities for conferences, seminars and workshops on a small scale. The overnight accommodation is spacious with en-suite bathrooms for a maximum of ten guests. It is well-suited for families on a small budget, or business travellers looking for the affordable and best hotels.
The house has six rooms and because it is owner run, has a very personal and intimate feel to it. Each of the rooms is individually furnished and has high wooden ceilings, rich curtains on the windows and mosquito nets on the four poster beds. The bright en-suite bathrooms all have a shower over the bath. All the main areas of the Macushla House are ornately furnished – bright colours and patterns abound. A heavily African themed lounge with zebra print sofa, make for an interesting place to relax and read the small selection of books and magazines, or to have a game of chess.
There is another small cosy lounge with a fireplace and a bar. The small restaurant has high backed, wrought iron chairs and serves excellent food. Outside there is a large covered veranda, with wicker, cushioned chairs and sofas in vivid colours, large, comfy seats and benches – it’s a lovely area to sit and enjoy the peace while having tea in the afternoon.
Macushla House has an intimate bar and dining room, and the meals are prepared with the freshest of ingredients with particular care being given to presentation and simple but wholesome cooking. Guests can choose a tasty dish from the daily menu offered throughout the day and evening. You can enjoy your meals or tea on the terrace or next to the swimming pool.
