We had a great stay here as a young couple. We arrived very late which was fine for the staff. The staff over the duration of our stay did not stop to amaze us with their friendliness and service. The house is stunning; very nice room as well; great pool; great food; small garden to wander around in. We'd list stuff that we didn't like, but there simply wasn't anything to complain about. We didn't really see the owner (once buzzed by in a bathrobe) but spoke to the very kind parents. They have a very big and very sweet dog which we found adorable.
I had an excellent welcome and time at Karen Gables. The room was very clean and cosy. The hosts are really friendly and are always ready to help you with questions. The food is delicious and be sure to try their perfect wines. I really enjoyed my stay! It's definitely the place to be if you're looking for day(s) of relaxing surrounded by a beautiful garden with pool. It can’t get any better!
A super little B&B that transcends the service offerings of a traditional bed & breakfast. Fred the butler, waiter, wake up service, porter, chef and chief bottle washer is a super guy who creates the personality of this establishment.
Set in the cool, leafy superb of Karen in Nairobi, this oasis is a welcome retreat after the frantic adventure of an East African Safari.
The homestead replicates a traditional Cape Dutch home from the Western Cape, boasts large airy bedrooms, lovely quite spaces, dinning areas beyond the traditional dinning room, a swimming pool that begs to dived into and a rollong green lawn that ends overlooking a cool fresh stream.
The room we had was very well furnished, comfortable bed, lovely bathroom. Very quiet and peaceful setting. The staff were excellent to. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back.
Amazing location just a 20 minutes drive outside Nairobi and close to the National park. Located in one of the savest and well established neigberhoods of Karen Gables. Clemence and Frederik are perfect hosts and you can easily feel at home at this superb place. Seamless service along with the relaxing atmosphere of the house and the large garden is a great experience. We are looking forward staying there next time.
The new small boutique hotel Karen Gables is absolutely fantastic. It is a spacious and beautiful house furnished in eclectic antiques gathered by it's Dutch owner. The grounds make you feel you are hidden away in a paradise, surrounded by terraced lawns and a lovely pool. Service is top notch and friendly, the food excellent. Definitely a great place to recoup when staying in Nairobi. Ill stay here again.
tucked away in a superlative part of Upper Nairobi aristocracy lies Karen Gables, truly a spectacular property with huge garden, lovely beds with superb finishes and excellent Full English Breakfasts, wish I could stay here forever!
huge pool and lamu style bar area. great staff, Fred and Hillary on hand and Silas and Juliet attending to your needs. well managed and well stocked, close to everything!
