About this listing
Located in a secure gated community off Ngong Road, this stone house on a 2.4 acre plot has two bedrooms with king size beds, a child's room with a single bed, two full baths and a large common space with a full kitchen, fireplace and dining table.
The stone house is newly built and spaciously designed for entertaining and joining groups together in the large common space with soaring ceilings, a cozy central fireplace, a large dining table that seats 10 and a cozy sitting area. Bedrooms are private and very quiet, facing groves of indigenous trees. At night the stars are vivid and you can hear tree hyrax calling from the forest.
Guests are welcomed by friendly staff, full time housekeeping and security to make their stay fun, comfortable and secure while traveling abroad. This is the perfect safari stopover with access to nearby locations such as The Talisman restaurant, the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Giraffe Center, The Nairobi Game Park, and other popular city destinations.

We had a fabulous time in Liz's comfortable, gorgeous house. It is not only impeccably decorated but the staff is great -- making us a fire every evening if it was cold. My kids loved playing in the garden and treehouse. Liz gave us excellent local recommendations. It was a great experience!
