Other Things to Note
W require that guests be verified by airbnb before we book them
Good responsible etiquette. Ability to appreciate and enjoy good environment. The Hot water Switch is put on 15 minutes before use. It is good to switch it off after 20 min to avoid wastage.
Rosemary and her family were wonderful to stay with! They were very welcoming and made me feel at home. The room is comfortable, clean, and has a private bathroom. The apartment is centrally located within Westlands and places like the Sarit Center and Westgate malls are within easy walking distance. I would definitely stay with Rosemary again!
Highly reccomended! Rosemary is a wonderful host with a fantastic family who made me feel at home very quickly. The room itself is spacious and bright with a good en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is large and equipped adaquately. There is also very good internet in the flat which was perfect as I was in Nairobi doing research. The location of the flat is very good- in affluent safe Westlands area with a supermarket ten minutes walk away and easy, quick transport into town and elsewhere. Will definitely return!
I fully enjoyed my stay at 'Cozy & Private' room. Rosemary was very friendly, considerate & attentive to my needs and her breakfast was much appreciated! She & her husband are both medical doctors.
The bed was comfortable; there was a plenty room in the wardrobe; bathroom was privately attached to the bedroom; it was nice & clean.
I had freedom to use her kitchen and the fridge (it's small, though...) & to cook. The location is very convenient. It is situated in the nice neighborhood; there are cabs right in front of the property; the public transportation is about 15 minute walk, and the major, modernized shopping mall, the Sarit Center, is only 25 minute walk, if you like walking.
It is not a single family residence though, so you might have to expect some noises from the neighbors... (in Kenya most building structures are built with cement bricks, so noises get amplified - it's a general fact...). Yes, it is a multi-family apartment complex, four story building, at the fourth floor (in British, third floor, because their 1st floor is 2nd floor in America..).
I had some writing project to finish. It was a good place to do my job. I believe you will enjoy your stay, too. And you'll have a good night sleep!

My life motto is always to leave a legacy in my endeavors and to make a difference for the better in peoples lives and the environment.
