We stayed at this property in April 2015 for three nights before a cruise from Mombasa. We were recommended to stay here by a friend who sung it's praises and we were not disappointed. The Driver Joseph picked us up at Nairobi airport as arranged, as we arrived at the hotel very late we weren't expecting Dinner to be ready... More

Nairobi's hidden gem. If you need a break, but don't want to go too far from Nairobi, this is the place. Food was ok, but everything else was very good. A unique experience. Pick a tree house. Prepare to be surprised.

Ngong House has the style and the magic to feel like at your own home. It is not a 5*luxury hotel, it is luxury because it is in the middle of the bush although being in an urban area, because of the excellent food and the beautiful garden and surroundings.

It is our firsts trip to Kenya. Friends recommended we spend our first two nights in Kenya here, very spoilt from the time they picked us from the airport. Food was splendid. It is a cash only hotel, something we were not accustomed too but we learn as we go.

I just returned from a great weekend getaway at Ngong house. You even forget that the city is only 20 minutes away. Paul is welcoming and the staff are lovely. The food is simple and fabulous! Thank you!

We stayed for one night over the weekend after a day in Nairobi National Park and loved every minute. We live in Nairobi and would never have believed this kind of peace and quiet existed so close to the city. The treehouses are fantastic - room 2 is the best, or room 6 if you don't want to climb up... More

We stayed at Ngong House for the first 2 nights of our holiday in Kenya. You feel you are already in the bush. Beautiful gardens and very interesting houses. The food was wonderful and every thing was done to make our stay very unique.

The staff were incredible, the setting was breathtaking, and the food was iresitible. I found the location to be convenient and wish I had the opportunity to write my auto-biography. The only critique I have of the place is that the owner came up to me and my local nairobi friends (all paying customers) and stated to us that they... More

I must say that this is by far the most serene space I have had the pleasure of staying in without actually living the city. Set in the plush suburbs of Karen the Treehouses are an amazing getaway! I was here for work though, but I plan to return with my family and enjoy some quiet time and with an... More

Hard to believe this paradise is minutes from Nairobi! We lived in Kenya for 2 months volunteering and traveling and ended our stay here. What a way to end our trip! There was room for our 3 kids to run and explore and the accommodations were luxurious. My cousin joined us for a beautiful dinner in a private firelit garden... More
