I spent two nights at the Macushla House and really enjoyed my stay! It's simply sweet, clean and the staff are beyond friendly! Oh and the food was amazingly delicious! I would recommend anyone to stay here. I found the Macushla House to be a warm and friendly place to stay :)

Macushla House was a nice place to relax and enjoy a couple of nights out of the tent. It was in a secluded part of Nairobi in an area called Karen. We felt safe and relaxed at the house. It was a bit of a drive from the airport which was a bit treacherous and dirty to get to but... More

This was my 3rd visit to Nairobi, but my first stay at Macushla House and it certainly won't be my last. This a small, very homely, traditionally Kenyan guest house offering simple but good quality accommodation, excellent food & drinks with welcoming, friendly staff. I would much rather stay here than some large soulless hotel where you could be anywhere... More

I cannot recommend Macushla house enough. We spent a total of 6 nights here, making it our base in Nairobi between safari in Samburu and Maasai Mara. The staff are extraordinary. Stephen is the most genuine and lovely man who makes you feel at ease and at home right away. Owners Grant and Caroline are lovely, happy to chat and... More

What a wonderful place to stay. The staff was excellent both for the rooms as well as for food and beverages. They were very helpful in getting us a Driver for our excursions, and suggesting places to go very nearby. We had requested one room with three beds, but arrived to find we had been upgraded to two rooms across... More

Just a lovely ex colonial house property in Caren Nairobi to relax in after a long haul flight to help prepare you for the next leg of the Kenyan holiday. Its rustiky charm and grounds (plus pool) are kept well. Shower water pressure wasn't that strong but adequate. Food was good too with more of a home feel rather than... More

I love to give outstanding reviews. Most visitors to Machushla seem to really enjoy their stay. Unfortunately my husband and I cannot share that opinion. The only reason we decided to book Macushla was to be safe in Nairobi between the time our flight arrived at Wilson domestic airport at lunch time until our international flight home late that same...
