House of Waine is an 11 bedroom property on 2.5 acres that blends the elegance of gracious living with the spirit of modern Africa in an exclusive and serene setting.

It was originally built in the 1970's as a private home. It was acquired by its present owners, a local family, and carefully refurbished over two and a half years resulting in the unique boutique property that exists today.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


The House of Waine is a luxurious boutique hotel run & operated by a local Kenyan family. Located just outside the bustle of Nairobi, but near the sights of the Langata district and the regional Wilson Airport.

Review:   Recommended for: Anyone

Pros: Amazing setting, like a private mansion, with only a handful of rooms. The presidential suite is probably the biggest, finest room I've ever stayed in, with hand-laid parquet floors, high ceilings, a big balcony, an enormous bathroom of marble and glass. Owners Angela and Eric provide phenomenal service and you feel like you're staying with family AND like you're royalty.

Cons: None.

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Beautiful boutique hotel in the leafy suburb of Karen away from the chaos of Nairobi. Spacious rooms with quality finishings and everything one would expect of a 5* hotel. Attentive non intrusive service. Charles at Reception went out of his way to assist with some of my rather challenging requests. There is no in house spa but beauty treatments and massage can be arranged on request alternatively there is an excellent hair and beauty salon a short drive away in Harding.

Review:   Nice meeting location with lush gardens. À la carte option always the best. Meeting snacks vary but insist on meats as they were better for me.
