“Beautiful ,peaceful home and gardens with super views”
Reviewed 25 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We departed this beautiful,peaceful home and gardens refreshed and relaxed.It was a joy to stay in such a lovely home,surrounded by glorious, carefully planned gardens,full of flowers,trees etc.and walk around the meandering circular walks,within the grounds of the fenced estate.The pretty,secluded and heated swimming pool is surrounded by bougainvillie,with plenty of places to sit and was enjoyed by all ages.
The views from the house and gardens over Lake Naivashawere superb.
We were very well looked after by the staff.The food produced by Mary , the Cook , was excellent and for those of us who need Apple crumble and ( occasionally ! ) mashed potatoes, our hopes were exceeded !
The presence of friendly dogs was a real bonus and ,notwithstanding the temptation to stay put , we enjoyed an expedition to Hell 's gate ( having already been to Lake Nakuru ) .We enjoyed a few games of tennis in the early evening .

“A beautiful, peaceful retreat.”
Reviewed 26 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

A lovingly restored home with magnificent gardens and views over Lake Naivasha and to Mt. Longonot. Perfect for a group of friends - lots of privacy when you want it - the perfect place to escape the city and relax. Sitting inside or outside, you're at one with the landscape. Meandering paths let you explore the property and marvel at the gardener's vision and creativity.

“Beautiful Place”
Reviewed 8 September 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was an amazing house to spend the weekend in. Went with a bunch of friends and we all fell in love with the house and the people looking after the house. Had nice lovely rooms, a room for me and my friends to hang out in Nd play games and relax, had an amazing view of Lake Naivasha, great pool, tennis court. And lovely dogs to play with. Overall I will recommend that you should go there and it easy to get to from Nairobi.

“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The location was easy to reach from Nairobi, and the house was comfortable with plenty of space. We all enjoyed the pool and the tennis court, and the owner and staff were all very helpful. The scenery was beautiful and the extensive grounds allowed for lots of exploring. The resident animals were very friendly! It worked very well for our party (2 grandparents and a family with 3 school age children) and we hope to return.

“Fantastic getaway!”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We live in Nairobi, a short 1 1/2 hour drive to Lahai. We have been trying to reserve it for ages and finally got a weekend sorted and are just back. What a special place! There is lots of offer in Naivasha but not lots that is this perfect. The house itself is wonderful, you feel right at home immediately because it is a home, and does NOT feel like a rental. we were 5 adults and 5 kids. the adults lounged in the wonderful porch and pool areas, the kids ran wild in gardens - a special view area garden, a turtle garden, a secret garden....there was so much to run around and see. Thanks to the family for sharing their gem!!! the house dogs were all about and we love dogs so that was no problem. there is a also a parrot, a few cats, and who knows what else :)
