Interaction with Guests
I am a fairly social person and interact a lot with my guests. I tend to travel a lot so you may will likely have the house to yourself sometimes.
The neighborhood is fairl quiet with a mix of restaurants and office buildings. The evenings are great to get out to cafes and restaurants within a 5km radius
It is easy to get around on foot or by public transport. The main bus station is only a 7 minute walk from the house. Several taxi operate in the area.
Cheni's flat is great - spacious, tidy, well-furnished. The wifi worked well and there is a massive TV with surround-sound system. Bedrooms and bathroom were well-maintained and clean. Cheni has a lovely cleaning lady called Cecilia who could not have been more friendly. The garden is huge and lush, with a flock of eagles in residence - incredible. The neighbourhood is safe and well served by the Yaya shopping centre and some posh bars and restaurants. The compound itself is secured by private askaris, who were very friendly and helpful.
The only downside was that we did not get to stay as long as we wanted, as Cheni and her partner had to come back earlier than she had planned. She warned me of this a week in advance of my arrival and said that she was happy to share the flat with us (she has her own bedroom with ensuite bathroom). After reaching the place, we realised it might get a bit cramped with 2 couples + our 2 kids running around, so we decided that it was best to cut the stay short and check out before Cheni came back. Despite this potentially problematic situation, Cheni was cool throughout, so really I have no complaint - she was straightforward but always very polite and relaxed.
I would recommend this flat to anyone who wants all modern conveniences in an up-market area of Nairobi, at a reasonable rate.
Pleasant host and very responsive to any issues or questions! I would definitely stay at Cheni's when next I'm in Nairobi!
Cheni was a terrific host and her apartment is absolutely beautiful. The apartment was clean, spacious and had all the commodities one would like on a trip away from home. Cheni was also very accommodating and flexible with our reservation given the changes we needed to make in during our stay in Nairobi. The apartment is housed in a private complex with friendly guards and feels very safe. It is a short walking distance from Yaya and still quiet and very comfortable.
I've been hear three times and love this place. I stayed with Cheni this time around - she's very welcoming, a ton of fun, and so easy. Great place, great host.
This is the second time I've stayed here - it's a great spot and my go-to location in Nairobi. The apartment is spacious, clean, and comfortable. Cheni is very accommodating and responsive, you're in great hands.
My stay at Cheni's place was absolutely wonderful. The apartment is very spacious, well-maintained, and in a convenient and safe neighborhood. The amenities are also great: GOOD wifi, 24/7 security, small balcony (looking out to a large lovely yard), and all the kitchenware that one would need.
Cheni was very responsive and made sure that I felt comfortable and welcome in her place. I would definitely stay there again on my next visit!
About the Host, Cheni
I'm a fun and adventure loving individual living on and off in Nairobi. I really have nothing too specific I couldn't live without. I tend to go from one extreme to another.
My favourite places on earth are too many- Nairobi- off course, Venice, NY, Paris and really any place where there is good adventures.
I spend most of my time travelling but love to take a good break when I get the chance.
I like easygoing and dependable people. I think i'd love the same of my guest
