Description

The space

The location is in the quiet leafy outskirts of Nairobi. It is 15km (20min) away from the city centre.

The cottage has a rustic country atmosphere and the mature garden with a large variety of trees attracts all kinds of birds and it is normal to see the hadada and scared ibis busy pecking on the grass. Others include the paradise flycatchers, olive thrushes and firefinches to name a few. We occasionally get monkeys visiting because of the trees.

The photos were true to life. Bella was quick to respond to all contact and helpful with arrival time etc. The house is well located, the garden is super. Being in a wooded setting there were a few issues with ants, mainly due to the fruit the monkeys were dropping from the trees. Good to have WiFi. Thanks.

A wonderfully green and peaceful retreat from the busyness of Nairobi. Definitely worth checking out.

It's a pity that I had to leave. Bella's place works very well for people who search for a quiet, green spot in Nairobi. Will certainly return. Bella, thank you for being such an excellent host.

Response from Bella:
Unfortunately, I was unable to host Jana and her family. The reason was because the cottage was undergoing some painting work which started the day she instant booked. The dates had not yet been blocked off. Although I offered Jana my other one bedroom cottage, and another option for the family, she declined the offer.

Very quiet and peaceful stay away from the bustle of Nairobi. Plus it's a great value! We had to use Ubers to get anywhere, but if that is okay with you, the trees and birds are so worth it. Bella is a kind and easy-going host as well.

I enjoy interacting with young creative entrepreneurs in my part time design consultancy work.
