This 'tiny living' quirky cottage made from two 20ft shipping containers is located in Karen, only a few minutes walk from restaurants and shopping.
The self-contained cottage is tucked away in our garden with a large verandah to relax and dine on, and a private garden area of your own.
If you are four people taking the cottage, two people will be downstairs on the sofa beds and will be sharing the bathroom accessed through the one bedroom upstairs.

Relax here, away from the noisy city.

The space
The container cottage is a cosy haven in a quiet private garden. The perfect place for a peaceful stay while in Nairobi.
Easy to walk to the shops and restaurants

Guest access
The cottage is separate from the main house and you can get in and out privately.

Other things to note
I supply two bottles of boiled water to drink.
If you don’t want to drink mains water please buy your own drinking water.

You can walk to The Hub shopping center for supplies and restaurants.
I recommend using a taxi after dark however.

There are friendly dogs on the property, but if you don’t like dogs shut your door and don’t be friendly to them!

Location

Nairobi, Nairobi County, Kenya

Karen is a great neighborhood with loads of green space. We're a 10 minute walk from the Hub, a good spot for shopping or grabbing a coffee in the morning.

While in Nairobi, if you have time visit:

1. Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. It opens at 11am for viewing the elephants when they come in for feeding.
The elephants have been rescued from losing their mothers to poachers.
