Lahai House, Naivasha: 8 Guests
Lahai House and Lahai Cottage are on Greenpark Estate, past the Great Rift Valley Golf Club, overlooking Lake Naivasha and the Aberdare Mountains in the distance. Lahai is a stunning family home, hosting 4 double bedrooms, sleeping 8. The cottage has 2 double bedrooms and a ‘dormitory’ style room with 4 single beds where the kids can sleep (or make enough noise to wake the rest of the family..?) Lahai come with a state-of-the-art kitchen, which you can play indirectly or leave in charge of a lady who can cook for you, alongside the full contingent of staff to look after you.
Lahai has an all-weather tennis court and a huge swimming pool, that you will share with the guests at the cottage if they are not part of your group. Two adorable resident dogs at the house charge around the huge lawn and are always ready to play with the kids. When it’s time to relax, the lovely sundowner spot overlooks Lake Naivasha. 5 minutes down the road is the Great Rift Valley Club with its amazing golf course, everything else is at Lahai for you, including a rather impressive small farm that kids large and small can be kept entertained in.
If you don’t know what happens in Naivasha, you’re missing one of Kenya’s highlights. On the south of Lake Naivasha, you can go horse riding or boating, or venture into Hells Gate National Park and go rock climbing, hiking and cycling. For the super fit, why not take on the climb up Mount Longonot or (for the less fit) go walking on the Crescent Island Conservancy? Alternatively, set the pace a little slower and take the family out to lunch under huge acacia trees at Carnelley’s or The Ranch House Bistro. On the north side of the lake, the Great Rift Valley Club provides golf, tennis and swimming facilities. Once you’re in the area, it’s a short run-up to Elementaita Conservancy and Nakuru National Park. Altogether, Naivasha offers a great collection of activities for everyone, and we have a great collection of houses to make your stay memorable.
