The best part for us of this small villa is the upstairs verandah with all of its daybeds, sofas, cushions and lounging options. It's wonderfully calm and stylish with great staff and an Italian feel to it of course. Recommended. We'd go back for sure.

Peaceful, nice place and very helpful staff, Excellent service and charming owners. Very good food and whatever we wished for, they arranged. Gideon is like a classical butler altough a little bit more charming, serving barefoot.

The Kenyan House Boutique is worth visiting if you have not yet. It is very tastefully decorated, clean and tidy. Very friendly management and staff from Ceaser who always has a smile on the face for all his guests and always willing to help, to his chief staff Gideon who went to great lengths to make us feel at home....

A lovely place, rooms at the first floor are wonderful, decorated with taste. The 2 bungalows in the garden are also very confortable. This little hotel has also a nice swimming pool surrounded by a lovely garden. Most of the clients are italian, as the food served at night, their pasta are to die for. You will reach the beach...

We were visiting Kenyan House between Christmas and New Year and immediately liked the nice atmosphere and the lovely decorated house with it's welcoming pool and lush garden. The breakfast are good with toast, pancakes, omelette and fresh fruit, but you might end up a little bored of the same breakfast every day if you stay for longer. Kenyan House... More

All meals are available including lunch. Dinner & breakfast were included in our room rate and both were excellent. We stayed only one night but... More
