Kaye is a great host. Very attentive and kind. Her house is lovely and spacious. All the rooms are a good size and the garden is spectacular. It's blissfully quiet and peaceful, yet close to supermarkets and the best restaurant in Nairobi. All the basics are provided. Great place to stay. Much better than the hotels, and I've stayed in many in Nairobi.
A big thank you to Kaye and Arnie for a wonderful stay! Kaye helped arrange transportation from the airport, provided a temporary phone, arranged for some food on our first day, offered many tips and even helped us to get to certain destinations. We instantly felt part of the family, such a welcoming reception was provided. Arnie's pizzas from the outdoor pizza oven, his barbeque chicken and Christmas turkey are not to be missed!
We rented one of the rooms in the house rather than the studio, however Kaye and Arnie opened up the whole house to us. The bedroom was very spacious, the accompanying bathroom and water pressure fantastic, the large flat screen TV and dvd player (supplemented by a large and free dvd library) perfect for the quiet night in. The third floor offers amazing views of the garden and is a great place to read on a rainy day, the downstairs kitchen contains everything you could ever need to make any creation. Often times we felt that we had the house all to ourselves; we always felt we had a lot of private space. Wifi service was great and fast and electricity was very dependable thanks to a backup generator.
The outside garden containing a multitude of flowers is beautiful and reflective of the care that Kaye and Arnie place in their house. At night the garden is lit up by a number of solar lamps and various Christmas lights. Joseph and Obed are the staff that attend to the house and garden 24 hours a day and are just wonderful and always positive and helpful.
The house is very secure in an area almost next door to the Vice President's residence. We felt safe walking around the Karen neighborhood by ourselves, it is quite a serene environment. A short walk provides easy and cheap access to public transportation to reach supermarkets and the central business district of Nairobi.
I stayed at Kaye's beautiful house only for 3 days but it was absolutely perfect. The room was very nice and clean. Everyone in the house was very friendly and helpful. If you want to enjoy Karen it is a perfect location.
