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 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!!!!
We enjoyed s1taking
The room was a perfect haven after a long journey, with everything you need for a comfortable stay and Sarah was a kind and considerate host. As it says, a quiet, cosy place for work or rest. And fluffy their cute dog was also very hospitable!
Great space to stay and work! Highly recommended. Very comfortable, all desirable amenities.
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.

The apartment is in a well maintained and secure neighbourhood, situated in an upmarket area of Nairobi. It is 15-20 minutes from Nairobi CBD by taxi/bus and five minutes from four shopping malls - Valley Arcade, Prestige Plaza (including cinema), Junction Mall and the most famous one being the Yaya Centre, which is 5 minutes away or a 15 minute walk - all of which contain coffee houses and places to eat. The apartment itself is lovely! It's modern, spacious and very clean. The room I am staying in (because as I write this I am in the midst of the second month of my stay, yes I re-booked!) has adequate storage space for clothes and luggage, a refrigerator, microwave and TV with DSV (which you can ask to have hooked up) and it also has an en suite bathroom. The well equipped kitchen is right next door and the utility room gives you a feeling of space although the room itself is cosy. Sarah is accommodating, helpful and friendly, often available for a chit chat which makes you feel welcome and part of the household. It is a family home and there is always someone around, as well as occasions where you will have the place to yourself. The wifi connection is good. Thank you to you and the girls, Sarah. Cheers!
This room is very secure and clean, also quiet and private, with good breakfasts and laundry options. Sarah is a great host, very well traveled and knowledgeable about Nairobi and Kenya. She helped me plan and knew where to go, how much things would cost. Her children are also wonderful, extremely intelligent and well-spoken in English - a pleasure.
I would definitely stay there again.
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!
I had a wonderful stay with Ms. Onyango. Definitely recommend staying here when in Nairobi. The room is wonderful and the neighborhood very central.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
