Im from Stockholm, living in Nairobi for the last six years.
Lisa's apartment is in a very nice, secure and peaceful location and has everything you need for either short or long term stay.
Lisa is very accommodating and was quick to deal with any queries I had. Pleasure to stay there and would highly recommend for anyone coming to Nairobi.
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The whole process was very easy and pleasant, from inquiring about availability to booking the place to picking up the key and dropping it off. Lisa is very accomodating and answered all of my questions. She also was very flexible with my need to check in late as i was flying into Nairobi late at night.
The apartment is:
Good and safe neighbourhood
Very nice apartment complex
Very clean and practical apartment
Good closet space
Nice living area and kitchen
Cable TV and internet which worked well
It has all the necessary supplies that you would need in any house
There is also a parking spot for a car if you have one
I highly recommend this apartment and Lisa as a host is staying in Nairobi for a weekend of a long stay. It is also a nice place to just get away within the city as a couple.
Thank you again!
Lisa has a lovely, well-situated flat in the Westlands area of Nairobi. She was a very gracious host, easy to reach and very responsive. Her responsiveness was particularly appreciated when a fluke incident in the flat woke my travel companion and me in the middle of the night. If you're looking for safe, private accommodations in Nairobi, look no further!
Lisa's apartment is great - I have stayed there twice as it is in a great location and size. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a clean one bedroom apartment in a safe area of Nairobi. Lisa is very friendly (although we haven't met personally) and the check in/out process was easy and simple. I definitely appreciated that I was able to use the apartment on the day of my departure as I didn't fly out until 11.30pm. Beware that there was no hairdryer when I stayed or toilet paper - this may have changed after my feedback. I will definitely stay there again.
Staying at Lisa's place was great! The apartment was super clean and beautifully arranged with all the needed equipments. Unfortunately we couldn't use the washing machine since it was damaged at the time we were there, but that wasn't a big issue. There was electricity blackout but we didn't even notice because Lisa's apartment has a generator which goes on automatically when the electricity goes off.. the generator is a bit loud though, which is normal. Communication before and during our stay was great, Lisa gave us a very straight forward direction to her place that we didn't have any problem finding it despite us getting there at night. Lisa's apartment is located in a very quiet, secure and beautiful part of Nairobi with shopping places around. We wished we had stayed longer. We'll definitely come back! Thanks a bunch Lisa! Lovely regards, Sharon and family.
Very nice and clean appartment. Well located and central in Nairobi. Nice area. Very friendly and all arrangements went very smoothly.
The stay was wonderful and Lisa is a fantastic host. When we had issues with internet access and cable, she graciously went out of her way to get a new system installed.
The apartment is located in an area that is safe and secure. We walked daily to Sarit Centre. The best way to go is via Sports Rd. The road is packed with apartment complexes and there are many people walking to the same shopping areas. Negotiate a cab for 500Ksh roundtrip and make it clear that they will be used exclusively every day or close it. The fact is that if you stay here, you will save on local transportation costs because of the walking distance to everything you would need. If you want to use a driver familiar with the apartment, Lisa can get back to me and I can supply the name of the man I used. His rate should stay the same!
The apartment is very simple and clean. Having a washer machine inside the apartment means you can pack light for your trip and do laundry every few days. The refrigerator/freezer is large enough to cook and save the leftovers.
I have stayed in many one-bedrooms via this website and this apartment is probably the best value as of yet. Because it is a great value, extremely clean and ideally situated, you should book it if it is available. Don't hesitate and don;t waste time searching through all the other ads on here. This apartment is definitely what you want if you are looking for a clean place within reach of shopping and excitement.
I had a wonderful stay in Lisa's apartment. Very clean and secure. Internet access and close to the shopping malls. Overall fantastic place, and looking forward to returning soon.
