The Neighborhood

Great biking and walking trails. A three hours hike or 20 minute drive can bring you near the Malewa Waterfall and Colobus Monkey reserve. Guided tours may be provided for 400 KES for up to eight people!

It was okay. We loved the house. Our only issue was there was no-one to help out with the cleaning especially of the dishes. Would be great if this is worked on.

We had an amazing time at the house. Steven (the caretaker) took great care of us. The house is lovely and has a great feel to it. It is a good place to get back to nature and be off the grid for a while. We will definitely be back.
