PoolThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.
Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

We are a friendly expat couple living in Nairobi for 11 years now. Our apartment is in a "resort"-like compound (think palm trees and a pool) in a convenient location in Kilimani. There's a standby generator, own water borehole, a swimming pool, 24-hour security, green and open spaces, electric security fence, parking, and compound-wide wifi coverage. With the current water rationing and frequent power outages in Nairobi, a standby generator and own water borehole really rate high these days!

I loved my stay with Mari. I felt at home and had a place to come after working long days. The apartment is central and within walking distance to both Yaya and Adlife centers.

Mari and Richard's place was the perfect launch pad for our trip to Kenya. We felt immediately at home, and enjoyed some great chats about the country and Nairobi life. The house was clean, safe and spacious, and had everything we needed. The Yaya center is right around the corne…

We chose to come back to Mari's place twice, which should speak for itself! We will always choose to stay with her and Richard when we have the chance.

Great location within walking distance to shopping centers, restaurants and night clubs. Bed is great, room is spacious and clean and cats are friendly! There is a very nice and well maintained pool outside and the security guards are very friendly. I would recommend this place …

Thank you too, Giulio! It was a breeze hosting you. :-) Sorry we weren't around much of the time you were with us and yes, we are glad you found the bed comfy (especially after your long haul and much earlier flight!). We hope to host you again in the future (another friend's wedding again perhaps?). Muchas gracias!

Loved my time here! The kitties were very cute, and the room was as advertised. I had to do some work while in town, so the internet here was very welcome. Would definitely recommend!
