The Space

Master Bedroom has King sized bed, Jacuzzi and shower (both), and shared living room with TV, wireless internet throughout the apartment.

A second bedroom has a queen size bed (sleeps two comfortably) with its own bathroom (shower). A third bedroom has a a full sized bed in which two can sleep in it but should be smaller people :) and has its own shower as well.

We have continental breakfast which you can serve yourself (bread, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and spreads for the bread, fruit). However, if you are staying long term, we will provide enough breakfast for a few days but after that, you would be expected to provide your own, and the weekly and monthly prices are priced accordingly. If you would like breakfast every day long term, and/or maid service, we can provide at an added cost. Just let us know and we can arrange separately.

Apartment is a short walk from a nice park (Arboretum Park) where you can take a stroll and possibly see some monkeys, get excercise, etc. Pool is on the premises as well as a small fitness center. Great place for a runner to stay in shape for their stay in Nairobi!

You are a short minibus ride from dowtown Nairobi or a $5 cab ride to many nice shopping areas.

It is a residential area, there is a stream of water running besides the building. The buildings around mine are also very quiet and is a nice place to relax yet feel like you are close to the City.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Spacious and comfortable apartment in the good location and good price. Highly recommended!

    Maureen - the apartment's manager was a real treasure. She was very helpful with arranging drivers, guides, etc. and continued to help us even when we left apartment.

  • I had a great time in Nairobi at this place. Very clean, far too big for one persons (it's really a flat designed for two couples at least). The location is very convenient for business people who need either to go downtown or elsewhere.

    I warmly recommend this very nice flat.

  • Charming apartment near the Nairobi Arboretum and not far from Westlands. I felt secure and well cared for by the onsite attendant.

  • Great place. Four of us stayed there very comfortably. There is a grocery store within walking distance and matatus to downtown less than a block away. Good security and usually quiet.

  • This apartment was a bit hard to find since there is no sign listing it but it was easy enough once one arrives. There was lots of space in this apartment. I had a great time staying here and most things were in working order. Maureen was a nice property manager and addressed my questions promptly. it is close the Nairobi Natural Museum and about a 30 - 45 minute walk to downtown Nairobi. Arboretum Park is just across the road. There is a market just five minutes walking from the apartment and the guards made the place feel secure.

  • It was a really nice apartment, and very spacious. The wireless was fast, and reliable. The pool and Gym we always available and not crowded. Actually seems no one uses them at all. The hosts are also very helpful. The security is VERY good. Its near the road, in a safe neighbourhood.

  • Our visit was fantastic, really relaxing in this vibrant town. Though the appartement had a simple interior, the services provided were fantastic and the rooms were very spacious. Definitely recommandable when staying in Nairobi

I like to travel, and do so often! I have spent a total of around 4 years in East and Southern Africa, most recently to Kenya to run with the best! I enjoy running, yoga, and swimming, as well as enjoying NYC activities. Between work and play I am not home very often but enjoy when I have guests. I like being helpful to people who are learning their way around the city. FYI, I eat mostly vegetarian foods, and prepare almost everything I eat.
