After reading reviews of this unusual place, five of us decided to spend a day and night at Heritage House. The owner and collector, Alan Donovan, was prompt in emailing me on details. To our relief, a staff member was waiting for us along a service road on Mombasa Rosd to direct us to the house Alan constructed over twenty years ago. The house is an imposing structure, with a style of desert U.S. Southwest and Moroccan, overlooking Nairobi National Park. We were given a tour of the stunning artifacts, furniture, and textiles of Alan’s live-in house. Every nook and cranny told a story….a story of the richness of African. We were delighted we made the decision to stay overnight because there was much to digest, and we had the opportunity to ask and share information with Alan. We had our meals served to us on the terrace level overlooking the park. Food was varied, fresh, and delicious. Every guest room was spacious, clean, and beautifully appointed. Uniqueness expresses each room. We decided to have our drinks on each terrace/veranda with expansive views of Zebras, antelope, and giraffe in the distance!…Alan arranges music for guests, at a nominal price. On the morning of our departure were were honored with the singer and instrument maker, Papillon who sang a combination of folk and modern melodies. We were introduced to his newly created instruments. The instruments are a work art…we were mesmerized by Papillon’s ethereal voice. He is releasing a new CD. Because Alan had no incoming guests that afternoon, we were not rushed out the door. Alan said we could take our time. We were so pleased with over fun and informative weekend, that we are telling our friends, Heritage House is a Must-See destination. It is easy to get to Alan’s dream house from Nairobi.Traffic permitting, the house is 30-40 minutes from CBD. We will return. Most importantly, I am very appreciative of Alan’s passion to give back to African by attempting to save what is painfully disappearing to modern growth and development.
