About this listing
This is a lovely self-contained room, with private access, own bathroom and toilet, and access to kitchen and balcony in the main house. You will enjoy the comfort of a large real bed. Can accommodate two.
We are optimally located and are close to many essential places in the city - key shopping malls (Yaya Center, the Junction, Prestige and ABC malls, the Green House, Lavington and Valley Arcade malls). Most of these malls also have cinemas, restaurants including fast foods, clothing and sportswear etc. There is a good public swimming pool, a walking or jogging track and gym close by.
We are also close to many exciting and varied restaurants, and one can get almost all international cuisines – Ethiopian, Chinese, Japanese, Italian and of course Kenyan meals. Most of the hospitals (Nairobi Hospital, Nairobi Women's Hospital, Kenyatta National Hospital) are within 20 minutes drive. The apartment is only 2 minutes away from public bus stops and taxi locations.
Many city attractions such as the Nairobi National Park, the Giraffe Center, Karen Blixen Museum, Kazuri Beads, Mamba Village, Nairobi Arboretum Park, the Nairobi National Museum and the National Archives are within 20 - 30 minute drive.
The room is self contained and has an instant hot shower and toilet, and a closet. It is connected to high-speed wireless internet and has other basic amenities such as a microwave, refrigerator, and television with DSTV. You have access to the kitchen and to the rear balcony. You can also use the washing machine.
One can easily get around using public transport. The bus stop is only 2 minutes away. Taxis are also a stone throw away and so moving around is quite easy. The airport is about 30 minutes to an hour by taxi, depending on the traffic. I can arrange for airport pick up to and from my place.
This is a generally quiet place and good for working or reading.
Security is important in Nairobi. This place is a very secure gated compound with 24-hour security. The neighborhood is also quite safe. We have adequate parking space in the compound.
I live with my two young daughters and our dog Fluffy. We enjoy hosting visitors from all over the world and will be happy to give you tips about Nairobi and great places to visit in Kenya.
Welcome!!! We look forward to hosting you!!!!
Enjoy your stay. Feel free to ask for anything you may need to make your stay better. Respect others in the compound.
I really enjoyed my stay with Sarah and her two lovely daughters as well as Fluffy, the dog. I had a packed schedule and was hardly at in my room however, the room has its own entrance, microwave, fridge and bathroom and so I had a lot of privacy. Sarah was always on hand to assist. Location wise: very secure compound and very convenient to access town.
Absolutely, offered to allow me to use the kitchen and watch TV in her apartment, extend my stay until a late evening flight. Wonderful. Her child care person made me toast and tea. If my taxi had not shown up she offered to drive me to the airport. Wonderful.
It was a pleasure to stay with Sarah in Nairobi! It's the perfect place to work - calm environment, central location private entrance for haphazard work schedules, and Fluffy for company! Highly recommended.
We had a terrific stay with Sarah and her lovely daughters. We felt safe and our belongings were completely secure when we were not there. Sarah shared her knowledge of Kenya with us and was able to send us off in the correct direction with places we wished to go. We did not have TV as it was being fixed but we did have great internet. The room itself is is not as advertised. No longer is there a single bed but 2 singles which makes it a tad crowded. We did have full use of the kitchen though. We would like to thank Sarah for her hospitality.
Excellent peaceful location. Sarah was the perfect hostess. She kindly arrangedfor me to be picked up from the airport. The room was very clean, with its own en suite bathroom. It also had its own rntrance. Perfect. Highly recommended. I would stay hrre again definitely!
In our short stay with Sarah we found the room comfortable, the shower hot and the family friendly. We are looking forward to returning the next week to stay longer and get to know them better
Sarah is a considerate, thoughtful and generous host. She is very flexible and accomodating. You are made to feel right at home the minute you walk through their front door. Her daughters are also very kind and Fluffy is a loveable dog. The room is perfect for one person and it is especially nice having your own shower and toilet. She willingly shared her milk with me in the morning and it is extra handy that the room the room has a hot water maker, a microwave and small fridge. Sarah was especially kind to transport me each day as she drives near where I needed to go each day. She was especially forgiving when I accidentally kept the keys upon departure and wllingly collected them from me! I would dtay here again if in Nairobi in a heartbeat. I left all kind of electronics and they were never disturbed. I left my door unlocked and never a problem. Hilda her housekerper did my laundry for a small fee which was especially n7ce with my tight schedule. Sarah is a highly intellegent person and has a wealth of all things Nairobi.
