“Great accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We booked the three bedroom cottage which was excellent...two bathrooms and overlooking the immaculately kept lawn and garden area. We stayed there for a couple of weeks, and in between took a few days off to go on a few safaris. They kindly allowed us to leave the luggage with them in between during our excursion to the bush. The staff were amazing and always willing to help in any way, and Anthony (the chef) could cook up a great meal and all delivered to our cottage.

The area is very quiet and secure.

Being in Africa, electricity is often unreliable but they have backup generators.

Shopping centre is a 5 min drive or 25 min walk, and Windsor Golf Club is just down the road if you want to eat out in style, or have a drink or coffee while overlooking the immaculately kept golf course and its lakes.

Will stay there again...highly recommended

Stayed with a group of around 20 for just over a week and we all loved it! The food was great and the staff polite and always willing to help you out. The rooms are nice especially the separate house with a double bedroom. Very safe and secure with guard dogs patrolling at night, beautiful gardens in a peaceful area. Basketball net as well which we loved!

I stayed here for two nights in June 2011 before traveling on to a church conference. From the moment I arrived, when Mary gave a welcome hug, Karina Guest House felt like home. The twin bed room on the main floor where I stayed was a bit small, and the bathroom a bit dated, but the rest of the main floor was contemporary, clean, and comfortable. I did not go upstairs, nor did I see any other guest rooms, but did peek into the kitchen, which was very modern. Chef Anthony’s meals that are created in that kitchen were delightful. I ate on the back patio with a view of the well-tended garden, a perfect setting to complement the good food. The home and gardens are surrounded by a tall wall and entered through a secure gate. Karina is a quiet, safe, and peaceful place to stay away from the bustle of Nairobi. Members of my church stay here often when traveling to Nairobi, and I would definitely be happy to stay here again.
