About this listing

Free WiFi included.

Weekly Discount: 5%


The space

Cozy apartment, tastefully furnished to make you feel at home. Your room is private and lockable. You'll have free high speed wireless internet and a mobile phone with a pre-paid local card as an option.

The apartment is surrounded by a large garden with beautifully aged, protective trees. It is on a private road with minimal traffic that leads to the park where you can enjoy walks, runs, quiet time, monkey sightings or just discover the park.

In contrast to the quiet neighborhood, the city center and main business district is a 10 minute walk away. Here, you will get what you need from banks, ATM services, forex bureaus, supermarkets and other shopping areas, chemists, travel agents and airlines, bus and train services, restaurants, bars, cafés, offices, 3D movie theater, schools e.t.c. Every Saturday the Maasai Market ( for Kenyan curios and artifacts) comes to the city center. Here you will have a plenty of options for gifts and souvenirs as well as traditional clothing.

The heavily guarded State House (the President's residence) is across the road which makes this a well secured area. You couldn't have asked to be in a better neighborhood.

Guest access

You will have access to the living and dinning areas, kitchen and bathroom. These are shared areas within the house. The only area not accessible to you will be my bedroom.

Interaction with guests

I am available to offer advice and recommendations on things to do and see in Nairobi and generally Kenya.

The neighborhood

Areas around: The Nairobi Arboretum park, National Museums of Kenya, City Center, Westlands by night and day, State House area, Nairobi city view point and Uhuru national park.

If you will not have a chance to go on safari, visit the Nairobi National Park for the game drive. It is a 20 minute drive away and you will see lions, elephants, rhinos, zebra, antelopes, buffalo, cheetah, leopard, hyenas, warthogs, many more animals and more monkeys.

Getting around

It takes 35 minutes from the airport except during heavy traffic hours. Major shopping malls and hospitals are a short drive away. I can arrange a taxi pick-up for you from the airport at $32 and you can use your local mobile to call a taxi whenever you require.

Public transport is available in the city center, a 10 minute walk away. However, you may call a taxi (contacts which I can provide) or a motor-taxi.

Free ample parking is available.

Other things to note

I have a Mini Pinscher pet dog who lives with me. He is well behaved, calm and makes for good company if you wish.

Free cleaning services are available if you stay 7 days and longer or at a moderate extra charge if less than this period.

Jacqui is the absolute best host. From arranging the airport pickup to directing me to the nearest coffee shop, I couldn't have asked for a better stay in Nairobi. Her positivity and warmth makes you feel at home. See you soon, Jacqui!

Jaqui's communication and arranging of taxis and tours was excellent. For us the nearby Arboretum was a huge asset and we loved our walks and picnics there.

Jacqui always has a smile and couldn't have been more helpful. The flat is in a small development with efficient and friendly staff in a quiet area. Very relaxing place to hang out - literally if you dangle from the hammock on the balcony! Would love to return some day.

Jacqui is a great host. Easy to get in, she organised airport transfer for me. Also safe part of the city. Took morning walk through the park. Look forward to coming back.

Although I did not meet Jacqui herself, her home assistant Rose met me and showed me around. The flat is very comfortable and quiet, with nice furnishings and a pretty balcony. The area is quiet, yet just a 20 minute walk to the city center or a 30 minute walk to the Westlands area, so it's very convenient. Recommended!

Jacqui is a great host with a good heart. She is always available to help and she does it with a smile. She provides her guests with lots of information and has a variety of great contacts and recommendations. The house itself is perfectly located, if you like to have a certain distance to the busy CBD, but still close to get there. For me myself I could not think of a better place to get familiar to Nairobi, as it was the first time I visited Kenya and Africa. Thank you Jacqui!
