The SpaceThis spacious 2500 square foot home is fully furnished and boasts a cozy living room with a fireplace, a lovely open plan kitchen, ensuite bedrooms and a wide verandah ideal for entertaining or just chilling. Kids will be entertained milking cows for a truly country experience or splashing around in the inflatable paddle pool. Adults are welcome to kick back and enjoy the fresh country air in quiet surroundings or use this as a base to access all that Nakuru has to offer from the Flamingo rich Lake Nakuru and the game in the park including the famous black Rhinos and Rothschild Giraffes. Nakuru Country Home is also accessible to other attractions such The Menengai Crater, Lord Egerton Castle as well as the archeological gem The Kariandusi Museum. As Nakuru is one of the top shool counties, parents of St. Andrews Turi, Greeensteds International, Kabarak, Mustard Seed Schools among others can use this home for that special get together during the school term breaks. This home belongs to a couple with two children and we do visit the home often. The home was built with heart and soul and we hope you will enjoy living here as much we do. This is not just our “shaggs” it is our escape. Karibu Guest Access•A fully furnished home with a standby generator •Fully kitted kitchen: Gas cooker with electric oven, electric kettle, microwave, fridge, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery •A private one acre area where the house is situated •An additional two acres of farm land where we have the cows and the on site staff •Emergency lighting •A TV with Zuku satellite channels and a home theatre plus a Play Station 3 with games •Solar heated/instant hot water showers •Lovely landscaped gardens Interaction with GuestsWe try our level best to have the home well prepared for you before you arrive. As we only rent out this home when we are not using it, we hardly interact with guests face to face but are available on phone for support. We have a full time groundsman/ cow man on site and a cleaning lady available during the day only. The NeighborhoodIt is so quiet and peaceful and the fresh air is very very addictive. I also love the fact that is accessible to Nakuru town so you can zone out or tune in to the town action depending on your mood. Getting AroundIt is best to access this home with a private vehicle but public transport is available close-by. Other Things to NoteAgain, as Nakuru is one of the top shool counties, parents of St. Andrews Turi, Greeensteds International, Kabarak, Mustard Seed Schools among others can use this home for that special get together during the school term breaks.
farmhouse barn
3br farmhouse barn
    Located in the picturesque town of Nakuru, this lovely boutique home set on a 3-acre farm is perfect for family getaways or a weekend adventure with friends. Beautifully landscaped and tastefully furnished, we welcome you to kick back and enjoy the fresh country air in a charming environment that only the countryside can provide. THE NAMING Olchani – A Maasai word meaning “A Tree.” Why Maasai? Well, after going through a series of non-inspiring names, we settled for Olchani not only because it sounds nice and unique but also because it is a true reflection of what we are trying to achieve with this home – a “green sanctuary” surrounded by trees. The Maasai have long used various trees for medicinal purposes and this practice is still very widespread today. In this regard, the word for medicine in Maasai is also Olchani. True to the essence of the name, we hope that you will find this “green sanctuary” relaxing (almost medically calming) and comfortable. THE COUNTRY HOME The land where this home sits has been in the family for close to four decades. As the place is very dear to us, we thought we should give it a facelift by building a more permanent home. It seemed like a farfetched dream at first but today after breaking ground in April 2012 we are humbled to welcome you to this special place that we call home. Cucu (our grandmother) was a jolly old lady and always had one guest or another in her home in addition to her many relatives. Olchani Country Home - Nakuru celebrates her by warmly welcoming guests as often as we can. Please feel free to enjoy the home as you would your own. Fill it with warmth, laughter and fond memories – Cucu will love that! FACILITIES AT A GLANCE • 3 bedrooms and one guest room attached to the main house ( total 8 beds) • Fully furnished • Self – catering (a cook can be made available on request, advance notice required) • TV and DVD player plus various DVDs including interesting documentaries • Lovely landscaped gardens • A tree and herbs nursery • A dairy pen (housing Daisy the cow and Henny the calf) • Hot water on demand (instant showers) • A barbeque grill • Assorted toys and indoor games e.g. scrabble and cards We have tried our best to maintain the facilities to International hotel standards but keen to maintain the homely touch. OUR STAFF Our staff have been working with us for a fairly long time. They are well known to us and we trust that they will be of service to you. Feel free to ask them for any assistance while you are here – if you are happy with them, a small tip paid directly to them will be appreciated.
