Anselm’s private properties are walking distance from the studio - Ole Chalet - a four bedroom family cottage with giant verandah & Bush Willow - an exquisite 2 person bedsit hidden in a secret leafy glade with incredible finishes.

Nani’s totally unique experiential properties (on our studio grounds) comprise of Pool House (an eclectic 2.5 bedroom Gaudiesque build), Glass House (1 bedroom earthen house) both next to the iconic swimming pool with its attendant bottle sauna and one bedroom Mirror House - ‘like being inside a disco ball’.

You could combine your stay with one of our signature experiences, or just immerse yourself in our workshops to discover the process of art glass as it happens. Sip cappuccino at a funky, chunky mosaic table in the Glasstronomique café. Surround yourself in a secret garden of sculpture, glass and living designs that enchant and inspire.

For the perfect long or short getaway - to book please email info@kitengela.glass or WhatsApp +254 722 524573. Two night minimum applies.
