We cater for for large groups and families travelling together by providing an environment of comfort and safety in a friendlly and pleasant homely setting. Kerarapony house is ideal for unwinding and relaxing as we are close to Karen and yet far from the noises of the city. Our grounds are well manicured and ideal for small parties outdoors. We have catered to chama groups, corporate groups and families looking for a neutral place to meet and enjoy their companions. The neighborhood is safe and ideal for country walks and bike riding. The scenery is beautiful, cool and has lots of trees as we are near the Ngong forest. In addition we enjoy the cool fresh breeze from the nearby Ngong hills. We are about fifteen minutes drive from Karen, which abounds with a number of interesting places and sites. Apart from the five star restaurants around such as Carnivore, we are ideally located for short trips to places such as the Sheldrick Elephant sanctuary, the Giraffe Centre and Kazuri beads. It is recommended that our guests should have the opportunity to drive through the only national park in the world located within a city, The Nairobi National Park. The five bedroom house can hold up to 12 people comfortably but we have room for a floor mattress when needed for those who dont mind. Four of the five bedrooms are en-suite with spacious bathrooms (hot showers). Fresh towels and toiletries are provided including mosquito nets for each bed. The lounge which is large and comfortable has a fireplace for the cold evenings and a separate dining room. The house has its own gate and garden where you can unwind and bask under the African skies, day or night for that matter. Galleria, the Hub and Karen malls are located within a 30 minute drive all with modern shops, cinemas and restaurants. Furthermore Karen hospital, open 24 hours, is only a 15 minute drive away should their services be required. A children’s theme park, a racetrack, a water park and a crocodile farm are other popular spots to enjoy with the family. There is something for everyone! When you book with us you will be in the very capable hands of Jane and her team. Meals and laundry services are also available at a small fee but we require knowing in advance. Our success is to see our guests enjoy their trip. Fun Fact: Kerarapon literary means cool in the maasai language Karibuni sana! Welcome home! More
