I had a truly wonderful stay in this beautiful home. Mũmbi was a lovely host and her home is an oasis. I cannot recommend her place highly enough. I only had a short stay over in Nairobi but I wish that I had time to have an extended stay. The room was clean and bright and peaceful and the rest of the home and gardens were so lovely and spacious. The room had a private bathroom, which was very nice.
