Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 12
Naivasha, Rift Valley Province
Situated in a private wildlife sanctuary , this cottage provides a perfect holiday next to lake naivasha. Here you enjoy peace, quiet and safe place with lots of wildlife. This cottage has 4 bedrooms with hot showers, WiFi, TV, Fireplace, Veranda, fully equipped kitchen. There are two staff on site to assist in cleaning, any other required services.
You can take a walk down to the lake to see hippos during the day between 6am and 6pm. Lots of birdwatching, plan a boat ride to crescent island, a day trip to Hell's gate Park and there are many restaurants in the neighbourhood. Check in is before 3pm and the main gate closes at 6pm. If you cannot make it by 6pm, we need to know so that we can make arrangements for the guard to open for you after 6pm.
Check out is by 10am strictly so we can have time to prepare for other guests.

Reviewed 4 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

I could try for months to fault this property but alas, would still fail. Super host Joseph is a local encyclopaedia who knows exactly how to pander to your individual needs and his little entourage of hilarious staff try their best to make your stay as perfect as they can. Joseph arranged a boat trip with peter (and drove us to meet the man himself) and we saw hippos, pelicans, yadda yaddda birds birds birds as far as the eye could see and - my personal highlight - a Giant Kingfisher.
But it was the giraffes - the wild non- captive giraffes! - that will sit with me forever. Literally close enough to touch and you are sitting at the bottom of your garden.

Management response:

Thank you thank you Andy. We will keep it up balancing between guests, nature and wildlife. Your review is a strength and inspiration which fuels our efforts. Hope to see you again in Kenya
