Have just returned to Australia from Nairobi and wanted to review Macushla whilst the whole experience was fresh in my mind. I book all my travel independently of agents and dealing with this guesthouse found all correspondence was timely, courteous and nothing was a problem. Booked airport transfer thru Macushla at a very reasonable rate and then used Peter for... More

Stayed at Macushla House for four nights during August 2014. It's the ideal place to recover from a long flight, or to recharge your batteries after safaris. The rooms are well appointed, comfortable beds and good bathrooms. The staff are friendly, kind and professional, food very good, with a wide choice each day, and excellent coffee and cakes! The surrounding... More

I had heard about this place from many a person. Therefore I gave it a try. And got disappointed. Big time disappointment. I mean it is just an old colonial house turned into a bland guest house and overpriced (emphasise on overpriced) drinks. You wanna know how expensive? I will let you in on that secret - $1.5 for a...

I only stayed one night here, but I loved it. Great location in Karen suburb of Nairobi close to loads of must-see attractions. Room was clean and most comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. I arrived rather late at night, but staff was very attentive and accommodating and made me feel right at home. I was asked if I was hungry,... More

I've stayed at Macushla twice now and loved it both times. It is a reasonably priced, characterful peaceful haven away from the city of Nairobi in the suburb of Karen ("Out of Africa" fame) and within minutes of the Giraffe Sanctuary, Sheldrick elephant orphanage, Karen Blixens' house and Kzuri beads. Not far from Wilsons airport if you are going on... More

Macushla House was the two day preparation site for our safari with a family of ten. Excellent location away from the bustle of downtown, it is located in the western suburb of Karen near all of the "want to see" activities including David Sheldrick elephant orphanage, Giraffe Center, curio shopping and Karen Blixen House (Out of Africa author). The accommodations... More

Our first port of call was Macushla House Nairobi for 3 nights and then 3 nights after our safari. This is a country house located in the Karen area of Nairobi with easy access to the DSWT, Giraffe Centre, Karen Blixen museum and coffee garden and Matbronze museum/art gallery and close to the Galleria shopping complex. This is a beautiful,... More

We began our Safari adventure by flying into Nairobi & staying here: what a delight! Beautiful quiet neighborhood, close to Giraffe Center, David Sheldrick to visit baby elephants, Karen Blixen, & other intended destinations. Breakfast & dessert (all we are there) were incredible & the staff were all amazing. Kids & we had impressive well-appointed rooms near office, decor throughout... More

This is our 2nd stay. As before we booked in for a couple of nights before setting off on safari. It is a perfect spot to relax after the flight from London and all the stressful activity leading up to departing for any holiday, esp straight after the festive season. We were lucky enough to get the same room so... More
