This top floor, 2 bedroom flat is tucked away from the road on a large but quiet compound, backing on a river and Statehouse property. Balconies on either side of the space allow for a lot of light to stream through. this is our home and we have made it as comfortable as possible, opening up the kitchen for more common living and turning one of the rooms into a TV room for privacy. The flat is walking distance to the shops and driving distance to all other main areas of Nairobi. Come stay!

The space

Welcome to your home in Nairobi!

This is a top floor, 2 bedroom very spacious flat with river views (and sounds). It is rare to find such a peaceful yet central location. Close to Westlands, Kileleshwa, Lavington, Kilimani and the Downtown! Also nearby Yaya Centre, Junction Mall & Westgate and Sarit Centre.

One great difference is that we have a washing machine so no handwashing! Clothes dries faster and doesn't get destroyed.

Views out the back balcony of Kirichwa River and Statehouse Gardens, a wonderful pool, great sunny weather and a free parking space.

Benefits of being on the top floor are that you can leave your balcony door open all day and get the fresh breeze flowing through without worrying about security! Sweet deal if you ask me!

Guest access

You will have access to 1 free parking spot, the common gardens and pool, 2 balconies, 2 bedrooms, 1 TV room, 1 sitting room, 1 kitchen, 3 bathrooms, 2 showers (bathtub not functional), and 24hr advice and help from us on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), email or phone. Everything in the kitchen is free for you to use. Our home is your home!

Interaction with guests

We travel a lot for work, and I manage properties for a living (Bruce manages a school on a sailboat...I know...weird), and so we are regulars at hosting from a distance. We are available 24hrs on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and email, and I have my assistant available in Nairobi for any emergencies. You are in good hands.

Other things to note

Please note that in Nairobi there are security issues and the best way to make sure you have a great experience is to follow these simple guidelines: smile and greet people and look them in the eye, introduce yourselves to the security guards without giving them too much info. Never share house keys with security guards or anyone else. Never open the front door to anyone you are not already expecting. Don't give out your personal schedule to strangers. Don't let strangers into the flat. Lock your front door at night. We are on the top floor, so we don't lock our 2 balconies (7 years and we've been all good...). If you follow this simple advice, you should be safe and happy! If anything comes up we are the first persons you should notify and we will help you immediately. We are there for you!

Anne-Marie’s apartment was great. Our family stayed here over the Christmas and New Years holidays. Her apartment is really nice - very clean, comfortable, and welcoming. It is also very conveniently located close to the city center, major malls, great restaurants, and much more, yet in a very safe and quiet neighborhood. The great view from the apartment overlooking the trees and greenery in the State House compound and the sounds of the birds singing in the morning made the stay even more enjoyable. Everything we needed during our stay - from hot water, to wifi - were readily available in the apartment, and whenever we needed anything else or had any questions, Anne-Marie was very quick and prompt to respond. She even went out of her way and got us a baby crib for our 2 years old! She also allowed us to extend our stay when our other plans got mixed up. Overall, I’d say we could not have asked for a better experience!

I booked this apartment for a family friend visiting Nairobi and she was absolutely delighted and has sent the following review: Staying at Anne Marie's B&B is like landing at a friend's apartment .The room and bathroom are fine but what is amazing is Anne Marie herself. In no time she organized a two day safari with flight pick up taxi best tent with spectacular views at Maasai Mara . Bright friendly and most helpful !

Anne-Marie is an incredible host. She thinks of absolutely everything when it comes to arranging a guest's stay, from ensuring that you have everything you need in the apartment to showing you around Kileleshwa to providing advice on navigating Nairobi. I feel very lucky to have stayed with her, as she made my transition to Kenya totally seamless, and I would highly recommend her to anyone taking a holiday in or moving to Nairobi!

Kenya is my home. Montreal is my heart. Food is my love. I host with my Italian roots, welcoming, warm, no expenses spared....like you're family. And my crazy Quebecois love of life, so your stay with me will most likely include some element of fun! Meeting new people is…
