Macushla House

Nairobi, Kenya

Surrounded by indigenous bushland in a quiet suburb of Nairobi, Macushla House offers a peaceful retreat in close proximity to popular attractions such as the Giraffe Center, Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and Karen Blixen Museum. The contemporary estate feels like a private home, with a relaxed ambience amid warm, African-themed décor. Gardens, windchimes and a swimming pool enhance the restful atmosphere. Featuring a collection of original art and artifacts from Yemen to Australia, this intimate guesthouse still exudes a distinct African identity. Owner-run Macushla House has the feel of a vintage B & B and receives wide acclaim for its warm, personalized service.

Singles, doubles and triples are accommodated in six individually decorated en suite rooms. Two lounges with African animal décor and high beamed ceilings have open log fires to create a cozy ambience in the cooler months. Enjoy a gin and tonic in the bar, or select a book from the well-stocked library to enjoy over afternoon tea and biscuits on the covered veranda. Hearty breakfasts and fine dinners are prepared from fresh local ingredients. If your tastes run toward serene settings away from the standard tourist experience, Macushla House is a pleasant and affordable choice. Facilities and amenities include a restaurant and bar, two lounges, study and library, and swimming pool.
