Be aware that you will feel like an intruder in someone's home. The owner and her daughter share ALL of the spaces with you. And you have no privacy except in your bedroom. When we arrived, the 2 "friendly, outdoor " dogs were running around indoors, and 1 was NOT friendly. Also, the advertised wifi was not working. A bad experience for sure.
Makena's place is chic, homely and tranquil. I have stayed here twice and both times Chichi was so friendly and the house had a really relaxed atmosphere. The garden is tropical, full of birds and a pleasure to sit out and enjoy. You feel very far away from the hustle and bustle of the streets Nairobi. The room was clean, spacious and private. Breakfast included an assortment of fresh fruit and hot food made to order. I particularly enjoyed the latte made from the Italian coffee machine.
You have to search long and far to find a more suitable place than Makena’s Place. The house is very beautiful and shows a very good taste. The garden with all the wonderful flowers and trees is like an oasis. The lady who owns the B&B and her daughter are just wonderful nice people who take very good care of their guests. I felt very much at home from the first day and I stayed there for 4 weeks. And the breakfasts are delicious not to talk about the coffee, I never had so much different breakfasts! This is a place that I can recommend fully. I can never thank Chichi enough for her courtesy and heartwarming generosity.
