Interaction with Guests

The apartment is located in the secure upmarket suburb of Kilimani. The area is close to some of Nairobi's finest restaurants and Shopping Malls. The apartment is a five-minute walk from Yaya Centre Mall. It is also within walking distance of Prestige plaza Mall on Ngong Road and only 15 minutes from the City Center by car.
Please note that the timing is approximate and during traffic jams travel time could be longer.
The apartment is a 3 minute walk away from public transport. If you have a car there is secure parking available in the compound.
From the airport you can take a taxi to the apartment. Alternatively take a shuttle bus to the town center, and from there a matatu to my place. Once you have confirmed your booking, I'll be able to provide up-to-date transportation information.
-Smoking is not allowed in the apartment.
-Overnight guests are not allowed without prior notice (at least 48 hours in advance and this is subject to approval). An extra charge of $12 would be applicable. I would also request the overnight guest to provide a scanned or a photo copy of identification/passport.
-General cleaning and laundry is done once a week. Guests are requested to maintain tidiness during their stay.
- Illegal activities are not permitted in the apartment.
I spent 40 days in Nairobi, and it was great to stay with Lusike. The house is tidy, safe and every week the housemaid will clean my room and clothes. Lusike is so easy-going and helpful, she shared local information and Chapati with me! The place is convenient, 10-mins walk to Yaya center, I alwasys take exercise in the morning, and it was safe and enjoyable.
It was awesome staying at Lusike and Eunice's place, great company, I always felt like home!
I stayed in the room for 10 weeks and had a very enjoyable time. The room is as described, very spacious and light with lots of storage room. The apartment is also nice and very clean. Located in walking distance to various malls: Yaya (5 mins), Prestige Plaza (10 mins), a matatu stage, bus stop and taxi stand (all 5 mins). Area is safe to walk around during the day.
Lusike is a great host, very welcoming and friendly. She arranged for me to be picked up from the airport, showed me around on my first day, and was always available for any questions.
Location: safe residential neighborhood (confirmed for daytime) in walking distance to two malls; easy access to matatus and taxis. Apartment: simple, nice, clean, spacious, with… pool access!! :) Host: super-awesome! very kind and forthcoming!
Personal note: I was a bit concerned about the location (distance from center) at first but that changed a little later. This is what seems to be a very solid spot in Nairobi.
I was very well received. Lusike is very nice. The accommodation is very quiet, great. the area is well served is allows you to enjoy the city without the disadvantages. I highly recommend Lusike's offer.
Lusike was a great host. She arranged for me to get into the apartment even when I was arriving early in the day. The apartment itself is comfortable and clean. It is also close to the mutatu bus stop to get to town and minutes away from shopping (Yaya).
