we stayed at this quiet, lovely and very clean place in January 2014 for a few days, before we travelled back to Germany. The big garden was ideally suited for our 14 month old son to run around and watch the chicken and turkeys in the backyard. The breakfast was very nice with tasty fruit and Mandazi. We´d love to...

Margpher House in Karen is a very lovely place in the beautiful and secure surounding of Karen Nairobi. The owners, Margret and her husband Monde, are very friendly and helpful hosts. Margaret's breakfast is simple great! Highly recommendable at an affordable price!

We spent several nights at this house before and after our Safari in the Masai Mara. The Owner Margret was very nice and her daughter helped us in many ways. I don't think you can beat the price for a safe place to stay in the Karen District. My only negative experience was the driver Eric she recommended. I found... More
