We stayed at Mara house, and it was absolutely wonderful, Rainee and the staff took care of our every request. The house is well designed and tastefully furnished, and the meals were amazing! Gourmet 3 course meals in the bush had such a novelty factor! The pool and barbeque area was lovely and was a nice area to relax in between game drives. We especially loved relaxing with sundowners while watching the zebra, gazelles and warthogs come to the watering hole, which was a short distance away.
The little touches made a huge difference - unlimited mineral water in charming maasai beaded bottles, washing powder for ladies to wash their underwear, excellent well made coffee, evening fires in the fireplace, and the excellent service from the house staff, who knew when to pour more wine into your glass, made excellent G & Ts, and generally went out their way to make you comfortable. The chef, Isaac, was excellent and more than willing to accommodate any requests for my 2 yr old son. Our tour guide Dickson was very knowledgeable and always shared tid-bits and interesting information on the game, and was an excellent driver - his ability to single-handedly change the tyre in the middle of the plains at super speed was particularly impressive!
We had such a lovely time, we strongly recommend Mara house especially for families.
