Lovely spacious house, yet set out in such a way that not too big. Great features such as sauna , jacuzzi and gazebo. Host was amazing.

I don't want to underrate this property by giving it 5, because it deserves at least 6 out of 5. This is that case when the hosts become your friends and the house makes you feel like you have been living there for years. Everything is excellent: - The house has everything you need - Hosts are super nice people, who make you feel very comfortable. They help you whenever you need anything, invite you for a glass of wine etc. - The guys who work there are just amazing, always friendly and helpful - Location is in the up-scale and very safe neighborhood, there is a couple of shopping malls around and a gym Cons: - It's very sad to leave :(

This is the second time I've stayed at Kaye's place. It is clean, comfortable, convenient and safe. Kaye has done a great with everything in the house and has always gone above and beyond to make us feel welcome (even though she's not there personally) and her staff have taken great care of us. I'd highly recommend staying here if you need quick access anywhere in the Karen area.

We only stayed in the studio a few nites but it had everything we needed, comfortable bed for my sister and I, two bathrooms and a self-sufficient kitchenette. As with the main house (where I stayed nearly 3 months) the garden is heavenly and the location ideal, highly recommended as a good getaway from the city center in Nairobi. And Kaye and Arnie did everything to make our stay comfy:)

I stayed with Kaye and Arnie for an extended period of time. I used the studio as my base for going out to do wildlife photography. I wanted somewhere quiet with an area to relax outdoors. Also security was important. I got all of those here. The whole environment was restful and secure. The dogs were no problem and ignored me most of the time as if I belonged there. But if any stranger went past the gate they were very vocal. On a couple of occasions I needed to see a doctor for minor reasons and Kaye was gracious enough to take me. Both she and Arnie were always willing to help even if it was just to answer a question. There is a café/restaurant 15 mins walk up the road which is very nice and quiet and has tasty food. There are offices for scanning/printing there also. Kaye has very good wifi in the studio. The studio itself is self contained. The little township of Karen is a delight and the people are friendly. It's only a few mins in a taxi and I used the company that comes to Kaye's house. You can get anything you need there and the supermarket is very well stocked. There are also two other food supply shops . Que Pasa is a nice café in Karen and is frequented by tourists. There is an ATM right outside the supermarket and another next to Que Pasa...plus a forex. Fresh fruit and flowers are in the market area along with lots of souvenirs. Staying at Kaye's provided me with everything I needed with the added bonus of a beautiful garden with gazebo for relaxing or sun chairs for sunning. Arnie is a dab hand at cooking pizzas in his outdoor oven too. The staff are a delight and I always got a cheery Jambo through the window each morning. I handed my laundry in to be washed each week and it always came back ironed and neatly folded. I don't even do that at home! All in all, a very pleasurable experience. Thanks Kaye and Arnie.
