The River House Karen is a Magnificent Treehouse You Must See

This Beautiful Treehouse called the River House is next door to five star Hemingway’s Hotel and is very close to touristic sites such as the Giraffe Centre, the Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary, Karen Shopping Centre, the Hub Mall and many restaurants. Create memorable experiences while waking up in a unique setting, with comfortable king size beds and modern amenities, next to the river. Enjoy your sundowners at the wooden deck and gourmet meals at the atmospheric dining area on the ground floor. Looking forward to hosting you.

There are many friendly animals in the area, dogs, guinea fowl, peacocks, chickens and a pig. Though they are friendly, the dogs have a tendency to barking. Also, if you have children please advise them to keep their distance and refrain from teasing the animals in any way.

The River House – conceived and designed by owner Jonny Dwek – is made up of eclectic design, tiny nooks and crannies that conceal stairways, ladders, bathrooms, you name it. The best part is that it’s only going for $129 per night on AirBnB.

Neigbouring the lovely treehouse is the  River cottage, a quirky little one-bedroom house next to the river, and visited by animals from pigs to dogs to chickens. Vintage armchairs surround the hearth to one side of the small kitchen, but there’s a large outdoor sitting room – again, fitted with vintage pieces and antiques – for more space during the day.  Go for long walks in the fields adjacent to the house. Moreover, it’s $50 for the cabin on AirBnB.
