“Etched in Our Memory”
Reviewed 11 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Christian, Clemence and their team at the Karen Gables made our experience the most memorable. Clemence and her team planned a beautiful engagement proposal for us, by the river side over a sundowner with a little bonfire to chase the dusk breeze. With every little detail taken care of, my fiancé was the happiest lady that evening, topped up with a romantic dinner by the fire place in our room.
With their flexibility, we were able to invite our family over to join us for a sumptuous brunch and celebrate together.
We thank the Karen Gables team for their hospitality and would recommend anyone to consider it as top of their list of choices of stay.

Our 3 days stay at Karen Gables succeeded our already high expectations. First class service, good food, friendly atmosphere and a great pool for work out. Paul is a star!

“Lovely hidden gem out of the hustle and bustle of Nairobi”
Reviewed 18 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Beautiful home like guest house with lovely gardens and pool. Giant room, with fireplace for colder weather. Nice breakfast (with dinner by request, for an additional fee. It smelled wonderful). Excellent staff and friendly giant "house dog". Good access to Karen attractions as well as Sheldrick Animal Orphanage. I liked it a lot

“Gorgeous property, great food and staff - amazing stay!”
Reviewed 12 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We were stopping over in Nairobi between safari and heading off to the beach. Had a wonderful stay at Karen Gables - was exactly what we needed! Gorgeous room, really amazing and helpful staff (thanks so much Silas!). We were able to book airport transfers and got a driver for the day to go see the baby elephant sanctuary! Plus we were able to relax by the pool for an afternoon with some beers.

Christian and Clemence were incredible hosts and great to talk to- very helpful! A wonderful place to stay, and out of the busy downtown area of Nairobi. Karen is very artsy and low key.

“Fantastic, luxurious, restful”
Reviewed 6 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

I was extremely tired after working in Kenya for a month and found Karen Gables to be an oasis- beautiful home and bedroom, pool, fabulous staff and excellent food. This is one of those travel jewels rarely found. I'll stay next trip!

“Loved this gem in Karen”
Reviewed 3 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This B&B is incredibly quaint, beautifully designed, clean and accommodating. The staff was so friendly and welcoming and went above and beyond for my fellow traveler's birthday. Every detail was just perfect from the warm towel upon arrival to our last breakfast before departing for our safari. My only regret is not staying longer. Until next time Karen Gables!
