This is one of the best places I have ever stayed, and I am an experienced traveler, both for business and pleasure. We had the pleasure to stay four nights in this wonderful property. The place is fantastic! It is small enough to almost feel like you are staying in someone's Villa (which is the case, sort of), and still big enough to give you complete privacy and tranquility. The house and the area around it is quite big, so it's easy to find you own part of the garden, a lounge sofa, an outside bed under a palm tree, or an area close to the big pool. It does not feel like a hotel, hard to describe. It’s like being invited to a private residence, but without all the hassle. The pool is fantastic, extremely clean and refreshing and flows around almost the whole house, even inside the house! And thankfully this place has no screaming children! The noises you hear are from birds or possibly monkeys.
We had full board, and the food is absolutely excellent. The a la carte menu allows you all kinds of choices and they also have a "today's" special which was excellent the times we tried it. The staff is something else! All the people we met were friendly up to the point where you got to feel like buddies, while still allowing you plenty of privacy on your own. They came around with free ice cream or fruits! Afternoon tea was included. Drink prices are very reasonable. All VERY VERY good.
I want to especially thank Mr Stefan, who greeted us when we arrived to enquire about vacancies. He did everything right! Mrs Zipporah (Zippo) made us feel like home every day, and I can't praise her enough. Alfa served us the suppers, always with a smile, while also telling us about life in Kenya. And Amos, the security guard in the gate, probably has the biggest and most handsome smile in the whole of Eastern Africa!
I cannot really think of any negative comments, not even suggestions for improvement. Sorry.
We give our absolute highest recommendations to the Maji, and hope to be back!
