“NOSTALGIC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Serenity and ambiance at the edge of the hustle and bustle of the city. Here you get in touch with the true perspective of reality as you relax and calm down. Excellent mind therapy is true and real at Kisima House.

When you think of a serene environment,away from the noise of the city,where you enjoy a home setup with birds balancing the atmosphere with their unending songs and whistles,then think Kisima house. With well trained members of staff,well lit rooms,a secure compound, a swimming pool and a green surrounding, Kisima is the place to be whether its a conference a holiday or just a pop in. I love Kisima,why lie. If I start talking about their food,then I might exhaust the space provided here...

Room Tip: Take the room upstairs on your left,they are spacious and brighter.

Kisima House is well placed in the heart of Karen and perfect for a quiet weekend away to relax or hold meetings. It has the lovely air of a farm home, the warm embrace of a cosy fire place and the welcoming presence of a calm sea front beach. Kisima House also has lovely staff and the ever friendly dogs to keep you engaged.

The magnificent environment and the well kept gardens lives you a feeling of refreshment all the time as you wake up to the songs of the birds in the morning and the fresh air out by the balcony of the room.
Waking up to hot coffee before l go for my early morning swim was always a good start for my day. The location is perfect away from the noise pollution and the friendly and welcoming staff always so determined to give the best service made me feel that l belong here.
The wifi connection did wonders for me and it made me to get intouch of the world anywhere around the compound as l invited my friends from Pretoria to come share the experience .
Home away from home l felt the comfort all the way till the end of my stay.
Try out kisimaHouse Karen when on Business,tour or leisure and relax in a friendly environment.

Office away-from-the-office

Kisima House is an excellent place to be; from food to visitor care by staff, management, ambient and cool environment, and serenity leaves one refreshed and able to accomplish much away from the office. For those who love nature, quietness and excellent conference services, this is the place to visit.

The hotel is tacked away from all the city hustle where you enjoy the serene environment of Karen. Comes highly recommended. The location is provides security and privacy and provides a nice getaway. Right from the gate the compound appears welcoming with well designed gate and well manicured driveway. The welcoming party was excellent and I can't complain. The garden at the rear and the swimming pool offered a view to cherish, what a view with the lit candles guiding you along. I can go on and on ......

The ambiance, the food, the staff makes the place homely. There is free WIFI and you just do your business quietly. A perfect property for business conference and a weekend retreat. You can do jogging, ride a bicycle around the area neighboring the hotel or swim. They can also cook for your favorite meal.
