This cottage is in a very secluded, safe and quiet location in Nairobi, yet easily accessible to amenities and shopping malls. The breakfast balcony affords a view of the beautiful bougainvillea in the garden below. Early evening strolls on a walking path several kilometers long that winds past the state house are a bonus. Very comfortable stay for over 3 weeks.

4.5 stars. My second visit. Great quiet (at night) spot in a good location. Big room with lots of storage and a small (think Paris Rive-Gauche ) en-suite bathroom with a shower. The room is part of a 3 bedroom shared space. Ok kitchen with fruit and cereal and bread and jam. Tea. Large shared great room and a balcony with a dining room type table - good work spot. WiFi is mostly on and ok when it is. Used my cell phone as a hotspot. 2 km to YaYa Center and an easy Uber ride to CBD. Only negative is the weak water flow in the shower which was ok for me. Recommended.

Response from Adriel:
The pressure from roof tanks in the 100 year house is a challenge. Guests are advised in case of shower problem to use the shared bathroom next door which has no pressure problems. Alternatively at the time of booking, they can choose the equivalent Cottage Master bedroom which has a jaccuzzi and no water pressure problems.

Kiloran House was a very nice place to stay. The prime bedroom was roomy, quiet at night and has access to a shared balcony and kitchen and sitting room. The en suite bathroom was small and the shower was weak but I managed. Definitely recommend this room if you don't need large volumes of water to wash your hair. Great location and Adriel was a gracious host.

Adriel was incredibly kind and supportive throughout my entire stay. I felt welcomed, safe, and comfortable. The outdoor dinning setting is as beautiful as it looks. If you'd like an old colonial home experience right in the center of town, I recommend Adriel's accommodation.

This house is such a wonderful place to stay. It's a beautiful and impeccably kept colonial home, and the property is a calm and lush respite from busy Nairobi. It feels safe, clean, and comfortable. Everyone who works on the property is incredibly kind and helpful, and are very quick to respond to requests. The best part about the home, however, is the host Adriel and his daughter. They are both so warm and lovely to talk to about themselves in Kenya. Adriel is a biologist and seemingly knows everything, his lovely daughter is a designer who works to empower local communities through design sharing and education. They are both the best hosts you can imagine, I would refer anyone to stay here and rest assured they would be well cared for.

Having stayed in all types of accommodation, I can empathize with fellow travellers on their disappointments over unfulfilled desires and I strive to do my best as a host in satisfying you.

KARIBU KWETU! We trust that you will feel at home, in your "home away from home".
