Our listed 7 bedroom main house more than comfortably sleeps 14 people on its 9 queen sized beds. Cost is $490 at bed only basis. Any extra guests beyond the 14 pays a nightly charge of $20. We also have 4 adjacent garden rooms (also ensuite) and the cost per night for the entire 11 bedroom house, which comfortably accommodates 22 in 13 queen beds, is $690. Our in-house chef makes delicious home cooked meals. Please note that food is not included in the accommodation cost.

This was a wonderful escape into nature and just a short drive outside Nairobi. The house was beautiful inside and out. We would definitely visit again!

Isaac house is the perfect place to stay while visiting Nairobi! Just outside the city, the house sits on beautiful land next to a wild life park. The gardens at the house are stunning, but that's nothing in comparison to the team of locals who work there. They are so kind and welcoming and make the best food. If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay with a large group, then Isaac house is the place for you!

Located about a 45 minute drive from the city, the place provides a lovely weekend escape from the madness of the city. It is near a go-karting venue and the hotel next door allows guests staying at Isaac House to use the facilitiies. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the common living areas are open and welcoming. The only downside was that the kitchen didn't have an oven so we had to improvise when we wanted to make our dinner. The staff is great and very responsive to guest needs.

Isaac House is a beautiful, cosy and homely get-away place ideal for family bonding; friends get-together; marriage enrichment get-aways; corporate retreats just to mention some. The ambience is very refreshing and relaxing. The rooms are cosy, very clean, neat, and comfortable. The meals are so healthy and yummy. I had a wonderful and memorable experience here! Looking forward to another visit!

What a beautiful house! It was just as nice as the pictures show. The rooms are very large and spacious and the beds are super comfortable. The large windows mean lots of light everywhere. The in-house chef makes some very tasty meals and snacks - I definitely ate too much :-) The huge porch outside was perfect for evening hangouts and I loved sitting on the porch swing early in the morning and looking at the scenic Lukenya Hills. My family all really loved it, including the kids. We will definitely be back!

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.
