As our guest you must make sure you have any of the fruits in season - avocados, mulberries, macadamia nuts, strawberries and locquats! Better to feast on them before the birds and the monkeys :) !!

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.

This place was a really welcome retreat from the noise and dust. It's in Garden Estate, so you are behind several walls, and feel like you are in a forest. Bella was really helpful, and kept in contact. Let her know what you want/need ahead of time, and she can arrange it. The WiFi was the fastest I've experienced in Nairobi, but make sure you tell her if you are a big television watcher (I think that particular signal isn't as great). I would go here again in a heartbeat.

Bella was awesome and the place was perfect for our two week stay! It is close to the Thika Road Highway and both the Garden City Mall, Thika Road Mall and the Village Market mall. Would highly recommend a stay here!

I really enjoyed my stay. The place was beautiful and surrounding grounds were gorgeous (large lawn and mature garden/trees). Bella did a great job at communicating with me and helping me get to her place from the airport. I was there for a conference at Safari Park Lodge, which was conveniently only a few minutes away.

Bella was an extremely gracious host and her place is lovely! We had three people stay at the villa ( Me, my girlfriend and my brother) and the space was more than adequate. Bella met us in person when we arrived and showed us around. Her caretakers were on had to help but were not intrusive. I had guests over to the house on the second day for a BBQ and everyone had a lovely time, Bella was accommodating even though we ended up with a few more people at the BBQ than I had initially anticipated and communicated. I highly recommend this stay for a quite get away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi!

Bella is excellent at responding to emails as you prepare for a stay. She arranged for a taxi to meet me at the airport and while she was gone, she arranged for her worker to meet me with the key, etc. Her worker was also very accommodating and friendly.

Wow! What an incredible place and lady. Bella really went the extra mile for us... helping us navigate over the phone while we searched for her place, took us to the grocery store, extended our checkout... she really was wonderful. And the place was as advertised, if not even better! Could not recommend this place enough. Thanks, Bella!!

I love travelling, nature, fresh air and meeting people!
My travels have taken me to the Pyramids and the Nile in Egypt, Robben Island in South Africa. Taj Mahal in India, Zanzibar & Mayotte Islands in the Indian Ocean, the Golden gate Bridge in San Fransisco and Rocky Mountains in Colorado.
I enjoy interacting with young creative entrepreneurs in my part time design consultancy work.
