About this listing
Relax in the sky in your private room with own ensuite and roof top garden! Huge apartment with modern kitchen, living area, beautiful pool & gym in compound. Located only 5 minutes between Junction and Valley Arcade for restaurants and shopping.
The large bedroom opens onto a roof top garden. You can wake up with the morning sun and the watch the eagles fly overhead from your colonial timber bed. Take your breakfast on your private roof top garden in the sun. There is a good size desk in the room and wifi in case you need to work. The private ensuite is big with a shower over bath tub.
Down stairs there's large shared kitchen for your use and a big shared living room with huge TV and entertainment center. Or you can choose to stay in your room and use the wifi on the roof top.
Interaction with Guests
We also live here and love to have guests. The roof top is isolated from the rest of the house so if you want privacy you can have it. You can stay up on your roof top or come down to chat if you feel the need. The choice is yours. We are very easy going couple from Australia and Honduras. We don't have kids so it will be quiet.
The apartment is located in very nice secure neighborhood. It is only 5 minute taxi ride to Nakumatt junction or Valley Arcade if you feel the need to go some shopping, take in a movie or enjoy a restaurant. Lavington is half way to the downtown and half way to Karen. So if you want to go to the country for the weekend it is close, and so are the bars and clubs of downtown
There are taxi drivers available close by who will take you anyway at anytime of the day with a simple phone call. There is also a visitor car park if you have a hire car. There are mutatu and boda boda stops just 5 minutes walk from compound.
The airport is anywhere from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours depending on the notorious Nairobi traffic.
Other Things to Note
We speak English, French and Spanish, so you can write to us in any of these languages.
The house rules are the usual ones that your mother taught you when staying at someone's home ;). Unfortunately pets are not allowed in the compound. If you are a smoker, we would like you to smoke outside on the rooftop please. We do not mind if you bring a friend but no late night parties on the roof as our neighbors will hate it ;)
Alejandra was a fantastic host and the room was exactly as described. A great place for me to stay over a period of 3 weeks. Really close to local amenities and the room itself was very comfortable with lots of light and space. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a base in Nairobi
Alejandra and Andrew were great hosts and their home is beautiful. Exactly as described and in a very safe estate very close to local amenities. Would definitely recommend this to any one look to stay in Nairobi!
Alejandra is a super friendly host with a wonderful apartment to share. The location is ideal, as it is only a few minutes from Junction Shopping Center in Lavington. The apartment is an oasis that separates you from the traffic gridlock and dust of Nairobi. You can truly relax in Alejandra's home!
This place is so awesome!! I really enjoyed it a lot !! I did not meet Alejandra, but we wrote and spoke quit a lot, she is a really nice lady and answers all your questions. However I meet her partner Andrew, he is also a very nice and interesting guy to speak with. In general my and my traveler partner meet nice people in the building and really enjoyed the pool and fitness in the compound.
The place is really amazing and I will really recommend to everyone coming to Nairobi! It has a perfect location, near a lot of good visiting spots. I will for sure come back and stay in this room.
Alejandra was a wonderful host and put us a ease immediately by helping out with arranging cab, suggestions, etc. Would certainly recommend to anyone coming to Nairobi.
Alejandra was a great hostess. She helped me to coordinate a taxi driver to pick me up which was very convenient. The location is extremely ideal. I was within walking distance to both the Junction mall and Lavington Green shopping center. The room is private and looks exactly as pictured with a large private terrace. I look forward to staying there again!
About the Host, Alejandra
My partner (Andrew) and myself love living here in Kenya. We get out a lot on the weekends so often the house is empty on weekends or for part of the weekend. We are both world travelers and speak a few languages. We love experiencing culture, art, adventure, good food, good wine, good music and good times generally. Our place is very casual and relaxed and we hope you will feel at home here.
