Karanja' place is well located for the delights of Karen and specifically those of the neighbouring Marula Merchantile. Great food at roughly $20 per person (including drink) Our experience of Karanja's place was affected by there being no water on arrival. After an hour of trying George (a very helpful pleasant guy) arranged for us to shower in the house next door through the adjoining door. George couldn't help but disturb us and we were not able to settle properly for well over an hour. Eventually we had water to the toilet and basin and by morning pressure had built for us to enjoy our own shower which has been upgraded from the one in the pics. The next morning at around 8:15 loud banging disturbed our Sunday morning waking time. By 9.30 we had no water. We had arranged to check out at 10.15 and don't understand why they wouldn't wait till we had left to work on the plumbing. Karanja was not around but I mentioned this to his father who was with the gentlemen working on the problem. He couldn't see any issue. He said the water had been working the morning before we arrived. I said that was unfortunate but obviously our stay had been affected. He didn't show much understanding. From other reviews it sounds like Karanja is a great host and George certainly tried his bests to help. The water issue was unfortunate but in addition I would say the space is a little 'worn' and the kitchen poorly equipped with two old saucepans and an insulated container that has obviously been mistaken for a cooking pan by someone else as desperate as me to cook breakfast. The beds are both small doubles and the bedding well used.
The place is neat and lovely. Two main issues though: 1. There is no guard so it makes coming and going a bit challenging. Continuously having to check in with the hosts. 2. The place is advertised as a two bedroom but it is really a one bedroom that has a partition halfway through. The partition is board and doesn't go all the way up to the ceiling.
Karanja was a brilliant host! Very quick responses and very accommodating in terms of times of arrival/leaving the BnB. He had even left us some lovely homemade lemonade! The area itself is really beautiful, with a scenic short walk to the Karen shopping centre. I would definitely recommend this BnB for anyone looking for a safe, relaxing stay in Karen!
