About this listing

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.

Bellat met me close to the entrance to the estate, and was very welcoming. The listing is exactly as described, and the setting is especially nice, since its not to far from Nairobi but very quiet and peaceful, and also not too far from Thika and Kiambu roads if you need to get something.
Bella received us warmly even though we arrived quite late. She oriented us to all the ammenities in the house.
Roger and Bella were lovely hosts and the cottage and its surrounding serene environment was the perfect place to begin our Kenya journey. Bella was very attentive to all of our needs, arranged transportation (via Amos - a driver we highly recommend, so much that we hired him to drive us to the highlands and for the remainder of our trip, even after we'd checked out) and was available to answer questions throughout our stay. Highlights of the cottage include beautiful rustic hardwood floors, high A-frame ceilings and amazing natural light.
The host was there to welcome us and showed us around and the facilities. They were friendly and welcoming.The house is located in a secure area and has a very beautiful garden. The house is well equiped and we could cook and have a nice meal there.we enjoyed our stay there and we will go back in the future when we are in Nairobi
What a perfect place to stay, We met both Roger & Bella, Nice people, we enjoyed our holiday. Surely we love to be back to your apartment any time in Kenya.
Nice big cottage in a green suburb. Breakfast provided in the kitchen. Bella was wonderful and very welcoming. She was the (necessary) linking pin between us and the drivers of the taxis.

About the Host, Roger & Bella
I'm a technologist working in the creative field. I love travelling and from my travel experiences I understand what it feels to be in a guest shoes. Because of this I ensure our guests have an awesome experience, kind of what I would expect If i was a guest somewhere else. I also understand people want peace of mind, hence we respect personal space.
I love meeting new people as they always create new experiences.
Looking forward to be valuable to you during your stay.
