Reviews

Celebrate Life Here!

Second time I am visiting this year and the experience has been wonderful, both times. The environment is great for a weekend away with friends celebrating life. There is lots to do (hike, yoga, swim, milk cows, ride horses, massage) and places to hide not doing anything but enjoying nature, bird watching, and listening to the sound of the river. The host, Elizabeth is gracious as always, interacting with guests at regular intervals, but giving you space to enjoy your visit as you please. Thomas and the team are also a very friendly and helpful team, responsive and careful to call each guest by name. That's a nice touch! The team needs to work on their speed and coordination in setting up for special events, and perhaps widen and diversify the buffet menu a little, but otherwise the food is wholesome (they have a well maintained kitchen and flower garden) and simply but tastefully prepared. It gets very cold at night here, but the log fires and hot water bottles they provide are a specially welcome touch to make sure you are comfortable.

Brilliant Getaway

Olepangi Farm exceeded our expectations. We had an excellent couple of nights staying in the Round House, a very cute mini cottage on 2 levels; the sitting room with dining table area and veranda is downstairs, upstairs there is the bedroom and en-suite and another mini balcony. It’s very comfortable, clean and I really liked the quirkiness of it.
Dinner and sundowners are in ‘the Pool House’, a super communal area with bar, seating areas, fire place and pool with sun loungers. It had such a chilled out and relaxed vibe. The decor and design of the buildings all flow really well together and you can’t help but feel your cares melt away.
The food was exceptional and wine and beer was reasonably priced. The sundowner nibbles were very tasty too.
I believe the general rule is no children (certainly young ones) so it was lovely and peaceful with adults unwinding without having excitable children running about. The setting is on a hillside looking onto Ole Naishu conservancy and overlooking a small stream- very pretty.
The staff were attentive, but not too much, making it all very pleasant and enjoyable. The manager met us on arrival and explained everything; he was really good. And Elizabeth, the owner, made a point of welcoming guests throughout the stay and ensuring everything was going well.
There are options to horse ride, go walking or have a massage at a small extra cost.
So serene but only 40 mins from busy Nanyuki.
We’d definitely recommend.
