About this listing
A homely yet stylish new family run bed and breakfast, where warm minimalism combines with simple local detailing and great service. This beautiful yet quirkily designed B&B arose from derelict colonial home, built in the early 1930s that once belonged to the Purdy family. Thankfully we were able to retain most of the original features, hence it's a unique mix of old and new; an idiosyncratic restoration.
Well located for exploring the attractions of Nairobi and Karen, it is a simple place, furnished in a homely style so after a days hot and dusty meandering, the Purdy Arms offers a calm and cool sanctuary in which to recharge over a drink or two and a meal whilst overlooking the stunning gardens.
Situated on 23 acres, the main building overlooks gardens full of indigenous trees & resident wildlife (duikers roam the plot and owls live in the bamboo) and is close to Wilson Airport the departure point for all of the local air safaris and only 16kms from the Nairobis International Airport. With only 5 airy rooms, its buzzy without losing the friendly intimacy of a boutique hotel and perfectly situated for trips and tours both in and around Nairobi as well as safaris further afield.
