The Neighborhood

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 only2 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!!!!

  • 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.

  • Sarah was a very sweet host. She made me feel welcome and even offered me a ride to the Yaya Center with her daughters. The space was clean, private, and in a good location. Perfect for my short stay in Nairobi! I would definitely recommend this place.

  • I found Sarah´s place ideal for my one-week stay in Nairobi. It is excellently located near all the important amenities, providing access to various parts of the city with ease whether using public or private transport. The room was practical and the bed especially comfortable ! I found Sarah to be a gracious host, offering me an unexpected plate of dinner as my flight arrived too late for me to go out looking for a meal, especially after I had forgotten to take my complimentary pea nuts off the plane which was to be my dinner ! I would easily recommend it to anyone needing a comfortable stay, convenience and ease of movement particularly around the Western part of Nairobi.

  • Sarah was an amazing, friendly and helpful host! The room feels more like an individual apartment with bathroom , fridge and separate entrance. It was very neat and clean. It is located close to Yaya shopping center, which has everything you need and then some.
    I would stay with Sarah again when I'm back in Nairobi and would also recommend her to anyone else.

  • I stayed 6 weeks at Sarah's home and I really enjoyed this time.
    Sarah is a great person, helpful, funny, interesting, generous, open-minded.
    She helped me for a lot of things (informations, tricks, drop me at the bus station..) and showed me amazing places in Kenya for a weekend. She has a beautiful family.
    The room is great: clean, comfortable, well-equiped (fridge, kettle..), private bathroom and entrance, stable wifi, well-located (Yaya shopping center, Junction shopping center..),
    It's a safe place.
    If you go to Nairobi, go to Sarah's home, you will enjoy this time.
    If I came back to Narirobi, I would stay with Sarah again and I would recommend her to anyone else.
    Sarah made me feel good and friendly, and when you are alone in a country for the first time, that is so important : thanks for that Sarah!
