Transfer from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to House of Waine
Nairobi’s leading boutique hotel, The House of Waine lies in Nairobi’s prestigious forested suburb of Karen. It is situated on 2.5 acres that blends the elegance of gracious living with the spirit of modern Africa in an exclusive and serene setting. There are 11 bedrooms that are all individually styled as well as conference facilities and a swimming pool. There is good access to the city, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Wilson Airport. The aim is to provide guests with an experience that exceeds all their expectations of city hotels and is punctuated by personalized, friendly and excellent service and cuisine in beautiful surroundings. As a recently renovated and converted house on the outskirts of Nairobi, House of Waine still retains much of the charm of a family home. Little has been done to change the structure of the house and so guests are assured of a relaxed and informal atmosphere where they can be free to do as much or as little as they like. That is not to say though that the House is lacking in the amenities present in any city hotel. They can still find a mini bar in each room as well as direct dial telephones, TVs with satellite and local channels as well as tea and coffee-making facilities with fresh flowers and pastries delivered daily to the room.
