“If you are looking for a very unique stay, don't look any farther. This tree house is amazing and so much better than anything I had imagined. This was a surprise for my husband and he was so excited. Seriously, how many can say that spent the night in a function tree house? LOL. Check in was very simple, it was clean and included everything that we needed for a comfortable stay and it's so much larger than expected. Thankfully, we didn't have a lot of bugs in the house. I would suggest bringing earplugs as the birds and/or wildlife can be loud. The Boho Eatery was also very convenient for a drink and/or delicious healthy meal. They do close early, so you have to plan accordingly. We really enjoyed our stay and will absolutely consider staying here again should we come back to Nairobi”

“This is a really relaxing place to stay, which was exactly what we needed for a couple of nights. The beds were very comfortable and the mosquito nets were appreciated. There are two showers and toilets and the overall space is very roomy. That said, the amenities are a bit vintage, but all in good working order. We didn’t take advantage of all the features, such as the steam room, but we enjoyed the amazing lap pool and the peace and quiet and the lush greenery around the pool. The breakfast supplies came in very handy. We had planned to order in dinner but had trouble using our overseas credit card with the food delivery services. It is a very short and inexpensive Uber to the Karen Hub, where there is a large grocery store and lots of food options. James and Alice were very helpful and friendly. Communication is great with the What’s App group. We did experience a power outage, but we actually enjoyed being disconnected and had a swim. When the power was on, the Wifi worked well. As there were three of us, our daughter slept in the single bed, which is in the front room off the pool with no curtains, but the mosquito netting gave a bit of privacy.”
The Brandy Bus is an old-school bus that has been revamped into a cozy and distinct Airbnb home. Tucked away in the serene beautiful suburbs of Karen it is a perfect place to escape. The Bus is close to many tourist attractions, restaurants, bars and close to both airports. All shopping,banking etc are accessible nearby. There are two double beds upstairs and two small single beds downstairs that also serve as sofas. There is outdoor seating and an outdoor fireplace.
“The Brandy Bus is pure magic. It has a playful spirit that is both enchanting and contagious. Whether lounging outside in the gorgeous, peaceful garden, cooking and sipping coffee or wine downstairs or taking a rest upstairs, we felt genuine relaxation and joy. We felt very welcome. Each person we met on the property was extremely kind and lovely. We loved the location, found a chameleon in the garden, and we were enchanted by the birds and interesting animal sounds. We were able to walk to the nearby Oloolua Forest for a nature hike and also to the Karen Blixen museum. We used the taxi service Karen suggested as well as Uber and found it very easy to get around. We came prepared for mosquitos and hardly noticed any. We could go on and on about how wonderful our stay was. If we are back in the area we would love to return. If you get the chance to stay at the Brandy Bus, you simply must!”
