"Macushla comes with monkeys!"
Breakfast was quite good, we felt pressured into dinner which was far less good and rather expensive. Location is excellent for visiting Giraffe Center.
It was raining when we were there, so we didn’t get to use the pool and patio, which looked lovely." See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya
"A perfect stay in Nairobi"
"Macushla House review"
What time we did have there was lovely - drinks in the bar shooing away the monkey, a HUGE dinner which was very good, a HUGE breakfast and a nice chat with other guests. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms large and nice and the showers long! Just wish we had had more time to enjoy the property, the little boardwalk to watch the monkeys and the pool.
The location was not ideal if you wanted to go back out for a meal. Once we got there, we decided not to leave." See all these reviews: 11n in Kenya
"Quiet place to land"
This gem of an old manor house has a beautiful garden, lovely colonial-style furnishings and just exudes a feeling of graciousness.
The quiet at night was a great treat after many long hours of travel and just in case you woke up forgetting where you were, a troop of some 40 black-faced vervet monkeys clambered across the roof in the morning." See all these reviews: 18n in Kenya
"Macushla House review"
"Macushla House Review"
We visited the Elephant Orphanage which was excellent and the Giraffe Centre which is a bit more touristy but interesting nevertheless - both are easily reached from Macushla House but you need a driver / taxi.
Our two nights there set us up perfectly for the rest of the holiday.
The stand alone bungalow is being prepared as an airbnb property with the option of self catering or using the hotel for breakfast / meals." See all these reviews: 5n in Kenya
"Colonial comfort at Macushla House"
The room was a very good size and comfortable. In the morning we had a lovely breakfast and strolled around the house and grounds. It was beautifully decorated in an old colonial style which was very appealing.
In the grounds we walked over a long wooden bridge to be greeted by an inquisitive troop of monkeys that ushered us back to the house. Only an overnight stay to get us close to our next destination of Giraffe Manor, which was literally just up the road.
Would definitely use this place again and recommend it as an overnight stop." See all these reviews: 9n in Kenya
"Outstanding Service and Great Location"
We were super happy to find out that the Giraffe Center was just minutes away, as well as the Elephant Orphanage. The room was large and the accommodations were very comfortable and clean." See all these reviews: 11n in Kenya; 2n in Zambia; 1n in South Africa
"Could have stayed forever II"
A quiet and cosy place with a great vibe, well hidden in the greenery of Karen and only 15 minutes by foot from the Giraffe Center.
It is also very conveniently situated if you want to visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage." See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya
"Could have stayed forever"
We stayed there in the beginning and at the end of our stay in Kenya, first in room no. 3 and then in room no. 6. Both rooms were very spacious, with one double and one single bed and a great modern bathroom. There was plenty of room for your luggage.
We really enjoyed staying there, particularly in room no. 6. Our only complaint is that both mattresses in room no. 3 were obviously outdated and uncomfortable. As we stayed only one night on that occasion, we never told the staff about it." See all these reviews: 12n in Kenya
