Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and stay in a cosy and romantic hideaway self contained hut in the trees with its own walled garden. The sense of seclusion is enhanced by a butterfly-filled wild garden. Jump into a pale green pool and swim to a thatched gazebo at the far end. Visit the giraffes and orphaned elephants, go on safari in Nairobi National Park. Good getaway or space for the weekender, traveller and business person.

The space
This enchanting hut has everything you could want and need for your time away, including your own outdoor kitchen, two areas where you can dine and an undercover lounging area with a fire to keep you cosy. Inside has been created to give you space for working, winding down on the sofa and of course a good night's sleep. Your bathroom has plenty of wardrobe and storage space to enable you to make this hut your home.

Guest access
Guests will have exclusive use of the hut and the area within the walled garden. They will share the garden, tennis wall and gym area, pool, gazebo and parking.

Other things to note
The enchanting hut is located in the Ol Losowan garden where there are 2 other cottages, a main house (built out of straw) where Julie and her son otto reside. There is a wild open garden that is shared as well as 18 metre pool, a gazebo, a tennis wall/gym area, veggie garden, trampoline, dart board, swing and seesaw.
