House of Waine is a family owned and run property and this is reflected in the name Waine which is made up of the initials of the family members.
Originally a family house, it was lovingly converted to a boutique hotel and eventually opened in 2004. The interior design takes its cue from the Matriarch of
the family and is imbued with a timeless elegance much like her.
House of Waine is the realisation of a generations long dream that all started with our maternal Grandfather, an entrepreneur who started a “mkahawa” or
coffee shop in Mwiria Village in Meru in the 1950’s.
Like our Grandfather and Mother we take a practical yet warm approach to hospitality.
