It was a pleasant surprise to walk in to the house and find everything is as described on their page, and even better to be received by such a wonderful hospitality team. It was a fantastic Christmas treat, we were 4 families and our experience was just amazing. The chef and kitchen team made such scrumptious meals, they played around with our menus and made sure nothing went to waste. The team on the ground is well coordinated and they never frowned or fussed over any requests we made. The manager also kept tabs on us. They all made us comfortable throughout our stay. The place is clean and well maintained. What more could we ask for- it was a memorable Christmas trip. Thanks Deborah, Cosmas, Fred and Peninah and housekeeping team . We shall be back again.

Isaac House is cozy country-style home, nestled in breath-taking gardens, and cradled at the very feet of the magnificent Lukenya Hills, in Athi River, Machakos, Kenya. We’ve been here numerous times with our family in the last four years, and it’s always a delight to holiday at this beautiful place. We will surely be back!

This is my second time staying at Isaac House. I returned because I loved it so much. The hospitality is amazing. Great food. Very clean rooms. Hot shower. Beautiful views. Beautiful vegetation and gardens. Lukenya Getaway is next door and you can take advantage of their amenities and see their impalas! A couple highlights at Isaac House is their large front porch, their gazebo with fire pit for great late night chats, and then a large living room for hanging out. Then the motorcross is very close where we rode ATVs into the hills and saw zebra, giraffe, gazelles, and wildebeest with incredible views. I’m looking forward to continuing to bring friends to Isaac House! A true gem of Kenya.

My husband and I visited Isaac House in November 2018 and we were blown away by the the breathtaking view of Lukenya hills and the serene surroundings. If you’re up early enough at dawn, get ready to view some wildlife grazing in the vicinity. This is definitely our most restful experience of 2018! Thank you Isaac House for a beautiful time with you.

As a first time visitor to Kenya from the US, I found this wonderful 7 guest room resort house/experience at beautiful Lukenya Hills reminiscent of Karen Blixon's house from "Out of Africa" - a place I have been dreaming about for years. This house just gave me that deep feeling of natural beauty, history, home comfort & serenity as I settled into the guest house. No idea what kind of sweet hospitality treat we were in for when we met the house's incredible staff upon arrival - who cared meticulously and cooked spectacular meals for us for 3 days (breakfast inside and evening dinners in the veranda). We stayed at the beautiful penthouse bedroom suite on the 3rd story. I asked for some hospitality requests of the staff and on the next day the owners made sure I got them right away. First class global hospitality and care! This is a great guest house for corporate, family and business retreats for a dozen plus travelers/vacationers from any place in the world. For me (as a former hospitality executive for 250 hotel properties in America) this property is a house with SOUL and care that will bring peace, serenity and comfort to any traveler and party/team.

We got to stay here with our team of 11 while attending a conference in the area. The house easily fit all of us, and the on-site chef and staff provided great food and service. It was a blessing to have our own space to relax and enjoy the surrounding nature, including some visiting monkeys.

About the neighbourhood
We are close to a couple of nice pools with poolside restaurants, an ATV motor cross that will arrange a fun filled tour of the Lukenya Hills (home to several populations of zebras, wildebeests and giraffes), and the Nairobi airport (JKIA). You’ll love the ambience, the location, the quiet neighborhood, the scenic views, the beautiful rustic interiors and the luxurious super-comfortable beds. It's your home away from home! It's a great place for families and big groups.
Getting around
We are around 30km from Nairobi's main airport and also from the Athi River railway station, where you can catch a train to the beaches of Mombasa (a scenic 4.5 hour ride that passes through Tsavo National Park). You can generally take an uber to the house from most places around Nairobi although having your own car will be helpful if you want to get around within the area.
