    Mandhari Cottage is an absolute gem. We came here at the end of our Kenya trip and had the best time. This place is truly unbelievable- it's like renting your own private resort. Soloman, the cook, made us an amazing BBQ as well- highly recommend getting the goat. Taking pictures at sunset by the pool and the birds around the property are memories that will stay with me. I would only recommend putting a sign from the road, if possible, to make finding the place a bit easier. But everything else was beyond perfect- I truly hope I can stay here again. The five of us appreciated this place so much.

  • Amie

    Gorgeous views, magical space and peaceful little spot for a few days. We loved it - and even though it was hot outside we could enjoy the pool, the cool breezes over the valley and just the general peace of the whole area. The lodging is tasteful, everything is incredibly clean and tity and the team was really helpful and available whenever we needed them. Loved the pool - the views while sitting there overlooking the valley are just magic.

    Richard’s property went beyond my expectations. We had an amazing stay the view is spectacular the scenery is out of this world. An ideal getaway location. Clean, artistic, the team was responsive and hospitable. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and I’ll definitely find my way back again.
