Macushla House Karen Nairobi

Macushla House Karen Nairobi is a small independent bed and breakfast lodge style home in Karen Nairobi, Kenya.  The base word Macushla is a Gaelic word referring to multiple terms of endearment.

(The house is located 20 minutes drive from Nairobi in the peaceful leafy suburb of Karen. Situated just around the corner from Giraffe Manor in one of the poshest parts of Karen and with just 6 rooms, this is a very intimate high-quality homestay, personally hosted by the owners).

The house has 6 rooms accommodating a maximum of 10 guests. Open beamed ceilings, natural woodwork, log fires in the lounges, and views over one of the last pockets of indigenous forest, complement the serenity and style of Macushla. 

The bright en-suite bathrooms all have a shower over the bath. All the main areas of the Macushla House are ornately furnished – bright colors and patterns abound. A heavily African-themed lounge with a zebra print sofa makes 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, cozy lounge with a fireplace and also 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 colors, large, comfy seats, and benches – it’s a lovely area to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet of having afternoon tea.

The food at Macushla will leave you with no doubt that you are in a private home and not a hotel. Macushla House truly is an oasis and it feels like a private home; the walls are hung with an interesting eclectic mix of old African photographs, memorabilia, antique textiles, and art.

Have snacks and drinks in the garden, then moved into the library after the sun goes down. They light a fire for you then serve a delicious dinner in the candlelit dining room. You will enjoy meeting the chef and getting a tour of the kitchen. The guest rooms were big, comfortable, and charming as well.

Macushla House has got Board Room Facilities to accommodate conferences, seminars, and workshops. Macushla House Hotel Nairobi is ideally located for excursions to places like the Giraffe Centre which is within a walking distance. There is also a decent-sized swimming pool set in amongst the lush gardens.

Other attractions that are within easy reach of the house include Daphne Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage, Utamaduni Centre & Verandah Restaurant, Karen Blixen Museum, Kazuri Beads and Pottery, Nairobi National Park, Bomas of Kenya (traditional dancers), Mamba Village (home to crocodiles), House of Treasures (for global handicrafts), Nairobi Racecourse (Sunday horse racing and golf course), Carnivore Restaurant and Karen Riding School.
