Holiday Rentals in Nairobi

Just booked in Nairobi

Built in 1919, Rosslyn is one of Nairobi's oldest and most special surviving homes. Set in 2 acres of private gardens we are close to UN, Village Market and Westlands. We have 2 singles, 1 double & 1 bathroom with separate listings on Airbnb
Rosslyn is one of the oldest character homes in Nairobi and it has been our family home for more than 50 years. We offer bed and breakfast in a cosy single bedroom, 'Elizabeth's Room', in our historic home. Next to your bedroom is the shared bathroom (only if we have other guests or family) with original claw foot bath, hand held shower, toilet and basin. Full English breakfast is a house specialty, fresh fruit, tea or freshly brewed fine Kenya coffee, cooked breakfast with our own free range eggs, toast, marmalades, muesli/oats/porridge are all available. If you have any dietary requirements please let us know at time of booking. Rosslyn was used as the home and garden of 'The Constant Gardener' 2005 drama thriller film starring Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz who won an Oscar for her role.
Thigiri, or New Muthaiga, was until the 1970s a large coffee estate when it was sold for residential 1 acre plots. Our home, Rosslyn, preceeding the development, was built by Andy Anderson, a hunter, in 1919. Rosslyn is a 5 minute drive to the Village Market, 7 minutes to the United Nations offices at Gigiri (more at peak times), 10 minutes to Westlands, 20 minutes to downtown Nairobi, 45 minutes to JKIA International Airport and Wilson Airport. These last 3 times increase at peak traffic times. If you need a taxi we can arrange one for you at reasonable rates. We are close to the beautiful Karura Forest which offers hundreds of hectares of safe walking, running, biking. Small antelope and monkeys can be seen.
  • It's been an life remembering experience to stayed in this cosy house, the lady is amiable and elegant, we had a good chatting in the afternoon, very caring and well-mannered lady. The doggies are welcoming and cute as well. The house is very clean and tranquility, with well managed gardening. Definitely I would like to come and visit again!

  • My stay at the constant gardener was fantastic. The house is beautiful, quite, clean and tastefully furnished. Bruce and Sonia were extremely helpful in organizing and during my stay, as well as her staff. Having breakfast on the lovely veranda is an experience. Thank you - I will definitely stay here again... hopefully soon!

    Meike2016-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Bruce's place in the "cosy single" room for several nights between safaris and loved the chill, peaceful atmosphere. (***Note that there are a few rooms for rent on the property--check out the photos before booking. I am reviewing the "cosy single" where I stayed--there is another "single" that is much smaller than my room.***) I didn't meet Bruce, but Amanda was very welcoming and even drove me and another guest to the Masai Market and took us on a walk in the nearby Karura forest. The property itself has a beautiful garden and veranda where you can have breakfast, watch birds, and just chill. The wifi is reasonably fast, at least in the bedroom, and the house is in a safe, beautiful neighborhood about 10 mins drive from a nice shopping area with a grocery, green grocer, shops, and restaurants. It is also reasonably close to Westlands with more food, bars, and shopping options. I found Uber and/or the boda bodas as good transport options, because there is not much within walking distance. Just be aware, that sometimes Uber has trouble finding the place--I walked down to the main road to meet them on occasion. The shower wasn't particularly hot, but it was at least warm. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom with other guests or family in the house, and you're looking for someplace with lots of charm, away from the crazy energy of the city, definitely check this place out.

  • Great place to stay, as ever.

    Alasdair2017-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very hospitable stay. Beautiful setting. The breakfast overlooking the garden was a highlight. Very quiet. Good broadband connection. See why Ralph Fiennes liked it!

    ARIF2016-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second stay at the "Constant Gardener" house and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again when I travel to Nairobi. Bruce's mum Sonya, is very welcoming and a wonderful host.

    Sharon2015-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • My grandfather and I stayed for a week with Bruce and Sonia at their lovely house in Nairobi. I only have positive feedback in regard to the stay, the house and the hosts. We were very well welcomed and everything meet our expectations and beyond. Sonia has some very interesting stories to tell which completes the stay in their lovely villa. I will stay with them again if I have the opportunity.

    Sebastian2016-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house is charming and the grounds are beautiful. A highlight was breakfast on the verandah every morning overlooking the garden. I stayed in the larger single room. I'd recommend this room as it has the sink and is next door to the bathroom. Bruce was very easy to book with and his mum Sonia was a lovely host.

    The Brandy Bus is an old-school bus that has been revamped into a cozy and distinct Airbnb home. Tucked away in the serene beautiful suburbs of Karen it is a perfect place to escape. The Bus is close to many tourist attractions, restaurants, bars and close to both airports. All shopping,banking etc are accessible nearby. There are two double beds upstairs and two small single beds downstairs that also serve as sofas. There is outdoor seating and an outdoor fireplace.
    The double-decker bus has been completely redone to accommodate adventurous travelers looking for a different kind of overnight stay. No matter where you find yourself in the little bus, there are great views of the outdoors through the many windows lining the walls.
    “I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills,” so says Karen Blixen in her book Out Of Africa, a colonial memoir. It is here that the story of Karen begins. When in 1931 a developer by the name Remy Martin bought the land owned by Karen Blixen, the Danish author, and converted it into residential lots, he had no idea that he had just initiated what in modern day would be one of Nairobi’s fastest growing suburbs. More than 80 years later, Karen, which was named in honour of Ms Blixen, is now an affluent suburb sprawling with gated communities, ranches belonging to some key individuals in the country and high-end shopping malls. For those of us who call Nairobi home, the city's muscular, cosmopolitan charms include a vibrant cultural life, fabulous places to eat and exciting nightlife. If you're just passing through, this melting pot of people and attractions has an unlikely national park (black rhinos and all), an irresistible elephant orphanage, the ground zero for the Rothschild’s giraffe, Karen Blixen's former home and so much more. Welcome to one of Africa's most dynamic cities!
  • Very well organized, clear communication, great information upfront. The bus is at an enormous compound, and a safe and quiet neighborhood. I was well received and shown around , even though I came very late. Unfortunately we could not stay the night, due to unavoidable circumstances, but I went to see the place anyway and it looks wonderful!

    Els2016-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • A great quirky get away. Such fun for everyone. Location is quiet and fabulous to get away from the bustle of Nairobi. Suited us perfectly from our youngest (aged 10) to the oldest in our family (84!). Communication was great and prompt. Luxuries of flowers made it feel homely. Thanks for a great stay.

    Maz2017-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at the Brandy Bus. It is unique, beautiful and the location and surroundings are perfect. Its a great choice for a couple — very romantic. Karen was flexible and a great communicator and Rhonda was lovely. One of my all time favourite Airbnb experiences!

    Panduka2016-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Just couldn't get enough of The Brandy Bus. Rhoda, who received us, is such a kind spirit and what struck me most is that the music collection proved to be quite fitting of the ambiance and general neighborhood. Everyone should try take a trip to this very enchanting 'means of transport'

    Eddie2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic few days in the Brandy Bus! We felt at home and very relaxed. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for somewhere unique to stay in Nairobi.

    Tara2017-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay on the Brandy Bus, such a unique place! The bus had everything we needed and we enjoyed a cosy evening outside by the fire. Karen helped us to arrange a driver for both days and Cathy was also very friendly and helpful during our stay. Highly recommended!

    Kirsty2017-07-22T00:00:00Z

    As our guest you must make sure you have any of the fruits in season - avocados, mulberries, macadamia nuts, strawberries and locquats! Better to feast on them before the birds and the monkeys :) !!
    The location is in the quiet leafy outskirts of Nairobi. It is 15km (20min) away from the city centre. The cottage has a rustic country atmosphere and the mature garden with a large variety of trees attracts all kinds of birds and it is normal to see the hadada and scared ibis busy pecking on the grass. Others include the paradise flycatchers, olive thrushes and firefinches to name a few. We occasionally get monkeys visiting because of the trees.

    The quiet, natural surroundings (green and mature trees), the birds, the fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi is a welcome relief when you arrive!
  • This was our home away from home! Absolutely lovely & simple cottage, with the best host we could have asked for. Like it says in the title, its a pretty serene & beautiful environment, exactly what we wanted. The garden was a joy to have our morning coffee under the gorgeous sun & our little girl loved it too. The monkeys were not much of a bother to us, especially as our daughter enjoyed watching them in the morning. The area is very safe and convenient to get into the city center and anywhere else really, as its located not far from the Thika Super highway. You are not short of shopping mall & restaurants here, plus there's the Safari Park Hotel close by, for a nice weekend brunch and possibly a deep in the pool. Bella is a wonderful hostess and very helpful too! Any issues we had in the cottage, she made sure they were sorted out immediately. She even allowed us to have family over (16 people!) for a Christmas BBQ & provided us with everything we needed. Thanks Bella! Too bad we didn't get to meet Roger, but we had exceptional communication from him. Fast at responding to any queries we had, arranged for the airport pick up, and even got in touch a week after we had left to check on whether we had arrived home safe. That was a big plus for me... went to show how hospitable they are. Thanks Roger :) I would highly recommend this place, because am sure you'll love it...we honestly did!

    Christine 2014-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We were absolutely delighted with our stay at the cottage. It is located in a delightful rural (though secure) setting. The cottage itself is fully self-contained and very well equipped. Although some distance from the city of Nairobi, with easy access to the new highway travel into the city is very easy. Though taxis are available it really would be advantageous to have a car available. We were particularly impressed with the level of supplies available when we arrived - better than any other accommodation we have used. Cannot recommend highly enough - far better than hotel accommodation.

    richard2014-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet and peaceful stay away from the bustle of Nairobi. Plus it's a great value! We had to use Ubers to get anywhere, but if that is okay with you, the trees and birds are so worth it. Bella is a kind and easy-going host as well.

    Emily2016-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed Bella's house very much. It was truly a serene environment. I was working in Nairobi for 11 days and this suited my needs perfectly. I was very glad to get away from the normal intensity of Nairobi, and yet the location was not far out at all. Bella was a very nice host and the 1-2 small problems that occurred were very quickly resolved.

    Dana2015-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • The photos were true to life. Bella was quick to respond to all contact and helpful with arrival time etc. The house is well located, the garden is super. Being in a wooded setting there were a few issues with ants, mainly due to the fruit the monkeys were dropping from the trees. Good to have WiFi. Thanks.

    Tracy2017-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my week long stay at "Located in a Serene Environment" in Ridgeways. It was a real retreat and I felt right at home. The interior was pleasant and the land outside was wooded and peaceful. I took cabs (Mwithiga was trustworthy and personable (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) ). Otherwise, having one's own car would be practical. Ridgeways Mall is about a 45 minute walk or a 15 minute drive away. It is an upscale shopping center with a Nakumatt grocery, banks, restaurants and shops. I cooked my meals on the four burner hot plate. There was a toaster, microwave, electric tea kettle and a small refrigerator in the kitchen as well. The house had good reception on the TV. There was hot-water-on-demand in the shower. There was an iron/ironing board. I was there in the rainy season and the house had no leaks. I was very comfortable there and would recommend this house. -Regina

    Regina2013-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, very convenient to Thika Highway. Plus Garden City Mall is only a ten minute drive away. Will stay there again!

    M Scott2016-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • All in all everything went real nice! Was there for two weeks. Environment is absolute hit about this place. U feel Africa and get a class accommodation all together. Peaceful, green environment but still close enough to downtown (if you use car). Cleaning service was good. Lady took care of everything! Host was real friendly! U might miss hot water in kitchen but if you use tea heater u'll manage without even feeling it. Everything else was good.

  • We loved our stay at Victor's house! It was very clean and comfortable... There were so many amenities provided at an affordable rate. Victor was a great host, he was very warm and welcoming.. Keep up the good work!

    Shinal2017-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very well appointed. Great facilities. And extremely close to tourist hotspots. Victor was incredibly friendly and helpful. We cannot thank him enough for our stay.

    Todd2015-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Uber from airport was 1 hour only $11 usd. Good location, under 15 to malls and restaurants. Store in site is very small and doesn’t sell alcohol but ok for basics. Internet was good. If you self check in make sure you have instructions for water, internet and laundry.

    Nathan2017-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Very accurate description of the house and the photos are very accurate. Victor was a very good host - very accommodating and welcoming.

    Till2015-04-09T00:00:00Z
  • Totally loved the house. Loved the decor, cleanliness and coziness it gives. Liked the ease with which we got into the Apartment. No hustle at the gate. Really loved that Victor checked on us the next morning and had groceries shopped for us so that we felt safe. The place is right next to the road which makes use of public transport easy. Loved, loved, loved it.

    I have lovely three bedroom apartment which I share with my sister in the trendy suburb of Westlands, Nairobi, on Church Road. It's a 5 minute ride from all the bars & restaurants but far enough for some peace and quiet if needed. I am letting out one bedroom as a B&B. I will be there to welcome you and am easily reachable should you need anything during your stay.
    The common areas around the apartment are spacious. When you leave the apartment kindly ensure you lock the front door and windows. When not using the rooms put the lights off. Lets save on energy. Basically after using the space leave it organised. A clean home is a happy home :-)
    Westlands is a beautiful neighborhood and it is popular for its proximity to town. As residents you get access to the best facilities and services in one location. It is mostly quiet especially during the evenings and weekends.
  • Best. Host. Ever. Sandra's apartment is beautiful - exactly as the photos suggest - and she is really laid back so I was able to really make the place my own. Also, we each had our own bathroom, which was a nice luxury (no fighting over the shower!) My colleague and I felt very at home there. Sandra was really communicative and helpful, connecting us with a driver she knew and trusted, giving us travel advice and generally being a warm host. The location of the apartment is perfect - just off Waiyaki Way, and close to the amenities of Westlands (Sarit Centre etc). I highly recommend Sandra's place, and I fully intend to stay with her again when I return to Nairobi.

    Claire2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • There was an issue (on my side) with this booking and it ended up that I couldn't stay. Sandra was very accommodating and offered me a refund when I had to cancel my remaining nights at zero notice. 5 stars for communication and understanding. Have stayed with Sandra before and will stay again when back in Nairobi!

    Vikki2017-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra is a brilliant host and made me feel most welcome and very comfortable in her charming home. She truly is very well organized and I highly recommend staying with her. Like me, you'll return to Sandra's place on your next trip to Nairobi.

    Gavin2017-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Sandra’s place was perfect, we really had a good week in one of her rooms. The apartment was clean and had everything we need, including a good kitchen. We will really recommend this place to everyone:-)

    Madeleine2018-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed staying with Sandra and her sister, and are both very easy going. Their nicely appointed flat worked well for me as I was in Nairobi on business, so the location was convenient. Enjoyed working on the patio as I had a lot of writing to do. They also had a toaster, which I really appreciated!

    Kristine2017-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Second time staying with Sandra and won't be the last. She's the perfect host - spotlessly clean home, serviced room, true to the pics and great location. Sandra keeps books in the bathroom (for those who like to spend time there!), mozzie repellant in the bedroom and anything else you need is no trouble. Highly recommend and will be back!

    Vikki2018-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful time staying with Sandra. The house is beautiful and she was a great host. The house has all the amenities that any one would need including a huge kitchen, private bathroom and comfortable shared space. Sandra was welcoming and flexible even when I had to leave very early in the morning. I would definitely stay with her again.

  • Joe's place was very nice. Would be best for 5 people, we only needed one bedroom. Edwin, the man who let us in was very nice and welcoming. Would have been better if towels had been provided. Additionally, the curtain to the bedroom didn't close properly, which would have been nice. Other than those two things, all was as advertised. Thanks for they stay!

    Gabriel2016-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful stay at Joe's place in Kileleshwa. The apartment is nice and roomy and very conveniently located in Nairobi in close proximity to Westlands, Kilimani and downtown Nairobi. The apartment is nicely furnished and the favorite amenities we enjoyed were the washing machine and the high speed internet which worked flawlessly. Special mention to Edwin (Joe's boots on the ground) who responded expeditiously and efficiently to the few small questions we had regarding hot water (which worked well if you made sure to swittch it on!). You definitely feel safe in this location and I was happy my 2 yr old son even had a chance to play in the compund with some of the nieghboorhood kids. There is a swimming pool which we used one day. Overall a very pleasant experience.

  • A clean and spacious apartment in a great location. The caretakers made us feel very welcome and were available to help. There is also a lovely shopping center nearby for food and basics. The apartment building was noisy due to 1 neighbor's loud music and party, but the noise didn't reach the bedrooms. Overall we would recommend the place and stay here again.

  • George was a great host, waited for us despite the late flight. The house is spotless clean, inside a gated community. The bed was comfy, shower hot, and he even offered us snacks and breakfast! Close to the airport, 15 min at night and but leave extra 30 min at morning time for traffic!

    Bob2017-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • George and Esther's place is close to the airport which is really helpful since the traffic in Nairobi can get congested. George was super flexible with my check in and even though I only stayed one night, he gave a helping hand with everything from laundry to breakfast to coordinating with my uber driver. Him and Esther are a class A host, would highly recommend! Their daughter even helped me pack :)

    Eva2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • George and Esther! What a couple! Incredible stay with them. They are such genuine people. So true and refreshing. Their home was perfect. Clean, close to the airport, safe and comfy! Their company even better. I didnt want to leave. You get more value for your money here. Its home.

    Linda2017-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend staying at George and Esther's place! They were wonderful hosts, even gave me delicious Kenyan food for lunch and dinner! The room is perfect, clean and comfortable. The area is very safe, in a gated estate, and just 15 min drive from the airport. And most importantly, George, Esther, and their lovely daughter will make your stay very enjoyable!

    Gethro2017-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • Erick and Serrainne are great hosts, very clean apartment in a safe gated community. A family full of positive energy with an adorable daughter, a true home from home. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to feel at home in Nairobi.

    Eric2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • I had a pleasant stay at Serrainne and Erick. I didn't get a chance to meet them as they were away, but I was able to get quick replies for any inquiry I had. She even gave me a contact to arrange a taxi to the airport. Very well located and safe area. Thanks!

    Carol2017-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was my first experience with Airbnb and it was great! Serrainne & Erick were very kind to me, the solved all my doubts since the beginning. The location is great and I can say is a welcoming place to stay. Thank you Serraine & Erick for your hospitality!

    Anibal2017-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • My first AirBnB, and I loved it. Unfortunately, it was just for a short while. Great couple, great place, in a really nice location and environment. The only issue was internet connectivity was intermittent (no fault of theirs I guess), which was making it difficult for us to book an Uber to the airport on the night of our departure. Even that, Erick got up at around 2AM to save the day. I'm very sure they'll be getting it fixed. Thanks again for hosting us Erick and Serraine, and for all the help.

    Christian2017-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • My son & I had a great stay at Serrainne & Erick's place! It's located within close proximity to various restaurants and shopping centers in Nairobi which was perfect as we could walk into the city for breakfast or just to explore. We didn't get a chance to meet Serrainne nor Erick but if we ever needed anything we could quickly & easily get in contact with them. They were also very helpful with recommending excursions, restaurants, etc. We had a fantastic stay!

    Fiona2017-08-07T00:00:00Z

    Our 3 bedroom unit offers a tranquil retreat tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city with up-market shopping malls and restaurants being a short drive away.
    The apartment can host 6 or more guests depending on the guests' sleeping arrangements. The mattresses at the 3 bay windows (which usually act as our reading nooks) can easily be converted to sleeping areas allowing an additional 3 people to sleep over. Being our home away from home, the apartment is tastefully furnished and has the usual kitchen appliances and household electronics. Our kitchen is stocked with the necessary utensils and some basic food and cooking items. Guests are encouraged to buy additional items according to their needs or preferences from the nearby shopping outlets.
    The apartment complex borders a very typical Nairobi neighbourhood. Jacaranda Gardens is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city making it quite peaceful once inside the estate.

Internet is fast and Juliet is awesome. I just stayed at 5 BnB's in Kenya this month and it was the lowest priced and the best by far. Even better than the Eka Hotel.

  • The level of attention to the guest at John and Rhonda's is unrivaled in all of my travels and hosting experiences. They left us fresh fruit and cookies and John was there personally to show us around and see us off. The Lodge is not only decorated in the most cozy and unique way, but the Australia-love evident from the boomerang on the key chain, to the fact that the globe was turned to Australia, (which we loved!) shows just how much fun John and Rhonda have hosting. Truly great attention to detail and very knowledgeable about how to make someone feel at home, John and Rhonda were the best hosts! We loved our short stay and our only regret was not staying longer. John and Rhonda and their Lodge are what makes AirBnB such a success and privilege to be a part of!

    Christy2016-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at John and Ronda's little cottage. It is nicely decorated with eye for detail. Every morning we received fresh baked bread which we enjoyed a lot. It has a lovely garden of which we were aloud to make use as well. They have chickens, a tortoise, goose and a dog. Thanks a lot for our lovely stay!

    Sanne & Ronald2016-07-29T00:00:00Z

  • This place is paradise. Located in the beautiful (and safe) spring valley with lots of mature trees, big gardens and old english-style houses. John & Rhonda have created such an exceptional AirBnB place. The little cottage is beautifully decorated with design pieces from all over the world. The place has really everything you can wish for: yoga mats, umbrellas, monopoly game, organic shower gel, a comfy bed and even a heater in the bathroom. John & Rhonda had prepared a folder with things to do and see in Nairobi and even specifically gotten information on certain places I had asked them before about. This is more than a 5*- hotel concierge would do ;) We got freshly home-made bread every afternoon/morning and yummy fruits, milk, butter, jam and muesli was available in the kitchen. Several times during our stay I had the song 'I am in heaven' in my head - I am sure it was because of this place. A big thanks also to Mercy, the house keeper. She does an excellent job keeping the place very neat and clean. All staff on the compound was extremely friendly. John & Rhonda are awesome hosts! We will come back!!!

    Vanessa2016-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at John & Rhonda's for 2 nights and it was magical. What an incredibly beautiful setting they have. It's stunning, it's lush, the river at the bottom is such a special hide out. Take a bottle of wine, enjoy some cheese and the home made bread baked daily by John with love and you have yourself a beautiful quiet picnic haven. It's unreal how beautiful the setting is. The Lodge was quirky and cozy and again John was so thoughtful... Juice, preserves, fresh milk and really nice books to read. I recommend The Lodge to anyone and when you go, please take a book or two with you and donate it to John as he has a passion to distribute books and reading material to less privileged schools in the area, GREAT INITIATIVE! See you guys in a few months and thank you so very much! Blessings!

    Karibu (welcome) to our sunny, standalone, three bedroom house in the leafy Karen suburbs. It is two stories, with two bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs, and a lovely view of the Ngong Hills from the balcony upstairs. There is a trampoline in the garden and room for kids to play as well as ample parking. The house is toddler proof and great for families. We are 10 minutes drive to The Hub shopping centre, which has a large supermarket, banks and places to eat.
    We are going away for 4 months, and renting out our home while we are gone. So we will pack up our personal belongings (clothes, toys etc) but will leave all our furniture, decorations, linen and fully furnished kitchen. We are simply wanting to cover our costs while we are gone, hence the reasonable price. UPSTAIRS There are 2 bedrooms upstairs. The large, master bedroom has a queen size bed and a baby cot. It has an ensuite bathroom with toilet and basin. The second bedroom is also large and has a bunk bed. It also has a balcony off it, where you can enjoy the afternoon sun and view the Ngong Hills. There is a second bathroom upstairs with a toilet, basin and shower. DOWNSTAIRS Downstairs is the main living area, with the kitchen, another bathroom/laundry and the third bedroom. The bedroom has a queen sized bed. The toilet/laundry has a toilet, basin and a washing machine. The living area has lots of natural light and the front door leads to a sunny seating area outside, which comes with table, chairs and an umbrella. The kitchen has a fridge, microwave, gas & electric stove top and electric oven. We have a water filter to provide clean drinking water. There is also a large chest freezer. As in many places in Africa, we don't use a hot water cylinder/heater. All the taps are cold water, apart from the shower which has an instant shower heater which heats the water as it passes through the shower head. The jug/kettle can be boiled for shaving, dishes etc. There is a housekeeper available for hire if needed to cook, clean, do washing, ironing or look after children. She's been with us for 4 years and is very trustworthy. Please note, there are construction noises from houses being built next door, so there are banging noises during the daytime. They finish by 6pm and it is very quiet at night.
    We live in a quiet estate, with only one road in and out and a guard station and barrier.
  • If you want a very safe and secure place that is quiet, clean and well furnished with extras , this is it. Maree was always quick to respond and there was a lot of support from Anena and Kibacia. The neighbours let their kids come play with mine and they were so kind to us. I would definitely stay here again and I definitelyrecommend it to everyone.

  • Oscar was an awesome host who was great in communication at all times. He resolves any concern or issues very promptly. His place is very clean and in a very quiet neighborhood. Very close to a shopping mall where one can walk. The apartment looks great just as the pictures depict it. My family and I would go back to his place anytime we need a place while in Nairobi. I recommend the apartment. Good value for money in my opinion!

  • This is our second time staying at a property managed by Oscar. We have had great experiences both times. This property was great with lots of attention to detail. We'd love to go back! Very spacious, great kitchen, and comfortable furnishings.

    Jana2017-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Oscar was prompt and supportive in responding to our requests. We found him to be warm and friendly. We were comfortable in his apartment.

    James2017-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures do not do any justice to how cosy the apartment is. I felt really at home I'd definitely recommend Oscars apartment to anyone. I'll definately come back again.

  • We stayed one month in Oscar's apartment. It was a nice place, close to the shopping centre with restaurants etc., safe and clean.

    Anne2017-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Oscar's apartment is spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. We loved the living room and terrace. The large bathtub in the master bedroom was a welcome surprise. The showers were hot. There were plenty of very good towels. The kitchen has everything. The TV has lots of channels. The wifi works very well. The apartment is a short walk from a large mall where everything anyone would want is available. There are plenty of restaurants in the area. We used Uber to get around the city; this was easy and affordable.

  • This place was very nice and centrally located. The wifi worked very well. The kitchen was well equipped. Just be ready to walk up 4 flights of stairs. But once you get there, it’s an oasis in the middle of Nairobi. Would stay again.

  • Communication was great from the time we booked the apartment. We received a welcoming email right away, and Silas was in touch with us before arrival making sure we were all set. He was here to meet us at 11:30pm when our flight arrived. The apartment was exactly as it appeared in the pictures, and more spacious than we expected. There was water and fresh juices stocked in the fridge when we arrived, along with bread and a few other essentials. Everything was in working order, including a great washing machine that we made use of several times. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. Gym wasn't great, but there is a full service gym (Pump Fitness) within walking distance in Valley Arcade which we used several times at 500sh per day (1,000 peak times). Shopping and restaurants within walking distance in 2 directions. Complex is very safe with 24 hour security, and seems like a really nice neighborhood. We travel to Nairobi a few times a year, and will definitely look to book here again!

We had tea, coffee, milk and bread waiting for us in the fridge and drinking water, which was very helpful after a long flight.

    Khadija 2017-06-26T00:00:00Z

    My place is close to the Junction Mall which is a 2 minute drive away or 15 minutes walk. The mall has amenities like restaurants, banks and various shopping stores. You’ll love my place because it is private and quiet. The security is great and so is the neighbour hood which is upmarket. We have also gone out of our way to make the space very comfortable for guests in terms of design and amenities. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
    The space has Dstv on the premium package and 40" screen therefore offering great entertainment. I have a lovely shared outdoor shaded patio where one can enjoy breakfast or dinner on a warm evening or just chill. We offer free laundry services for the items we offer i.e. bed linen and towels and every guest is welcomed with complimentary fruit, coffee, chocolate and tea.
  • Safe, private, self-contained place with a nice verandah to relax. Very close to Junction Mall.

  • Madam Mary's place was awesome She was really helpful during my stay Great location with easy access to transportation. Very clean,secure and private The house itself was a heartbeat from home,I really enjoyed the DSTV package and the hot shower. The internet had good signal Enjoyed the fruits which she had placed for us I really liked the decor and the nearness to the malls and restaurants The house has all the necessary kitchen equipment and the iron box for me was a plus I will for sure come again.

    Cyndi2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mary's studio is fabulous and meticulously arranged. The pristine white surfaces can only be offered by someone who values decor and ambience. The experience and space feels like you are in more than a studio. I look forward to stay there again in my next visit.

    Raymond2017-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mary's place is wonderful! I was in Nairobi from the US for work and needed a clean, quiet, private space to relax after long days of work and this was exactly it. Since the space is self-contained, you have a lot of privacy, but since Mary lives next door you can easily reach her if you need anything. She provided some basic amenities (fresh fruit, coffee/tea, bottled water, towels) upon arrival. It's a small space but it has everything you need: a full bed, a sofa, TV, lots of space to hang clothes, and fast WiFi if you need to do work. The small kitchen is fully stocked (refrigerator, cooking plate, water heater, microwave, full tableware), so you can do all your own cooking/eating if you like. Mary provided a mosquito coil so I didn't have any mosquitos, and when there was a power outage (unavoidable in Nairobi) she considerately brought some candles. Located in a gated community within a residential area, it feels very safe, but still pleasant and residential. It's walking distance from Junction (which has ample cafe's, shops, and supermarkets), as well as Arbor Cafe and Valley Arcade and other places to hang out.

    Susanna2017-01-13T00:00:00Z

She lives next door and was able to help with any issues that arose. Highly recommend for solo travelers. The only fault is the wifi was a little weak but it did work. DSTV is a plus.

    Dear Guest, Thanks for considering staying with me! This apartment is only 30 minutes away from JKIA airport and 20 minutes to Nairobi City center. This apartment is 90 square meters with three bedrooms and comfortably sleeps 6 in the safe, secure, leafy and up market Lavington area. The first bedroom is master ensuite with a Queen Size bed that sleeps two. The second bedroom equally has a Queen Size bed that sleeps two. The third bedroom, which is the smallest, has a double bed that sleeps two. The kitchen is open plan and fully equipped with all modern conveniences. This apartment is probably not ideal for light sleepers, as it's near a busy road. I have taken this fact into account by pricing it at least 30% lower than similar apartments in Lavington. Indeed you will be hard pressed to find anything similar at this price, in this much sought after, location. This apartment is simply the best value for money apartment in Lavington, hands down! It's less than a 15 minutes walk to The Junction Mall and a 10 minutes walk to Lavington Mall at Lavington Green shopping center from the apartment. It's also a three minutes drive to Valley Arcade shopping center and five minutes drive to Yaya Mall from the apartment. There is a bus stop (Route No. 46) right outside the apartment complex which makes accessing Nairobi very easy. There are both day and night guards, in addition to a stone perimeter wall for your safety and security. Please note that the apartment is on the 3rd floor of the building and there is no lift. A cleaning lady services the apartment once a week or more often should you require her services, at a nominal fee. The apartment comes fully equipped with: -Cable TV (Zuku) -DVD -High speed internet access -Gas/Electric cooker and oven -Microwave oven -Fridge -Toaster -Washing machine -Cutlery -Crockery -Linen, fresh towels, soap e.t.c. -A dedicated parking slot I look forward to meeting and hosting you shortly. Regards, Oscar.
    Lavington is an upmarket neighbourhood with very many shopping malls and restaurants from African, Chinese, Italian, Brazilian, French etc. There are also many nearby entertainment joints, nightclubs and bars.
  • It was a great place to stay! There are a few malls and such around to get groceries and it's not a far Uber to central bars and restaurants. It's on the fourth floor, so a bit of a hike up but a beautiful, very comfortable place. Would highly recommend!

    Kenneth2018-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Oscar's place looks just like the pictures. Everything was clean and there were even some items available like coffee, tea, chocolate, bread, juice, etc. for us to make do until we got our bearings for food. The wifi in the apartment was great as well. Everything worked out wonderfully. I would stay at this location again.

  • Thank you for a very comfortable stay in Lavington, Nairobi. Oscar's place has everything you need. We really appreciated the welcome pack on arrival; bread, eggs, tea, milk, juice: just the ticket for breakfast especially since we arrived in the evening. Oscar has help from Alex and Emily. Everyone was very easy to communicate with which is great. We would definitely stay at Oscar's again.

  • Although very brief, we had a wonderful stay while in Nairobi. Oscar was a great host. He was easy to connect with and made sure that our family was comfortable. The house was excellently furnished: comfortable, full kitchen, wifi, and dstv. He even made sure there were a few food essentials in the kitchen to help us get started. Thank you so much!

    Jana2016-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Oscar's place was just lovely. For three weeks, we felt very safe in the compound and the gate guard was very friendly. We never met Oscar but communicated easily over the phone and were met by Emily, his house keeper who showed us around and gave us the keys. Nothing was too difficult and he happily talked through any questions. There are three flights of stairs which is not an issue at all but just bear it in mind if carrying heavy bags or suitcases. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and while the buses/matatus are noisy outside, it adds to the authenticity of being in Nairobi, a busy bustling city! The apartment was very close to what we needed and close to Lavington Mall, Junction Mall and Valley Arcade (about 1km walk). It was a wonderful stay, comfortable and safe. We will be back for sure! Asante sana :)

Lucy organised a little shopping for us on request and we found everything ready in the fridge. The house is exactly like in the photos,in a safe area (a jump to Langata road,short drive to Galleria, Nairobi Nationalpark and the Bypass), very spacious, clean, nice decorated, everything you need is there. Unfortunatelly we did not meet Lucy, but Jacinta took the best care of us. We were so happy with the 3 dogs around, they just made our days even better ! All in All I can only highly recommend that place to anyone who wants to stay in Karen, we enjoyed it so much that we quickly booked again for November just a few days after check-out. Looking forward to come back!

Super clean, comfy, really quiet most of the time (though the neighbouring dogs could have barking fits at night on the odd occasion but at least it made you feel super safe) and her staff were wonderful. Hazel is a sweet dog and kept me company the whole weekend. Lucy herself couldn't have been more helpful or communicative. Great value stay. Recommended.

  • Grace's place is what I'd call 'perfect'. It's in the right place near everything and the apartment itself is impeccable. Spent a great week here and wish I was staying longer. It's gonna be my go-to place every time I am in Nairobi going forward. Grace is also super quick in communicating. I'd send her a message and before I put my phone down I had a reply- impressive. The day guard (Mr Nyakundi) is also awesome :) Thank you Grace!

  • Grace was on top of it with communication except for a little hiccups here and there but overall the place was great and convenient with transportation. Neighbors were a little loud though.

    Amazingly furnished, large 3 Bedroom master en-suite apartment. The apartment is great for families, looking for preferably long term stays; although, short terms are welcomed. The apartment has everything you need, tv, wifi, cookery, pots, towels and all the other homely necessities. The leafy compound has a large swimming pool and picnic area, perfect for kids. Close to Junction Mall which has absolutely everything. It's 10-15 minute drive to the CBD, Karen and Westland's areas.
    Secure, green and super quiet. Close to everything! Shopping, night life, restaurants, horseback riding. Perfect location.
  • Kennedy’s place was excellent! It’s a large beautiful apartment located within close proximity to restaurants and shopping areas and is also within walking distance to Junction Mall. The apartment is located within a gated community with full 24 hour security and I felt very safe during my stay. The apartment is very spacious with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths and even though I was a solo traveler, think the apartment would be perfect for families or group of friends. Kennedy is a very professional host and any problems I encountered were handled expeditiously and he made sure my stay was as comfortable as possible. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I would highly recommend Kennedy’s apartment for anyone planning a visit to Nairobi!

  • Looking for an airbnb in Nairobi? Look no further. George and his family are amazing. From the time I arrived, to the trip George offered me to the airport at 4:30am, I was super impressed by the hospitality and lengths he and his family were willing to go to make my stay pleasant. I was shown a lot of great sights (animal sanctuary, elephant orphanage, Maasai Market, National Museum, and Two Rivers Shopping Centre), and having a cultural ambassador took the quick stay to a much deeper level. Thanks George and Steph!

  • I just loved the place. I felt at home. The apartment was exactly as shown in the fotos . Everything I need was provided. George and his Family were very welcoming and was prompt for any questions I had.Would definitely stay there again. Thank you for making my stay comfortable.

  • George is a really nice and reliable host. He even picked us up from the airport and we were lucky to try bananas from his farm. The apartment was really nice and huge. He was always helpful with all the questions we had. Thanks for having us!

  • This is the first time that I've booked a place in Africa and it has set the bar very high indeed. I was pleasantly surprised that I could find a place and that Airbnb had finally arrived in Africa out side of South Africa Having used Airbnb in Europe and Central America and Asiathis was indeed a pleasant surprise. The rooms were bright plenty of sunlight well-designed at Internet not an issue at all and the power supply was always there.security was not an issue at all as it at the end of the road which leads to a dead end and the lighting along the road is superb. Anyone looking to stay in this part of Nairobi should deafly look at this place it's very near the TMR mall about 10 minutes walk and near Tom Garden City mall The family are very pleasant and kind and George was kind enough to pick me up from the airport which was very much appreciated. I have no hesitationin recommending this place and hope when I go to other parts of Africa that I can find places like this at this value

  • Sherry's apartments are very nice and furnished with love for details. She is always helpful whenever help is needed and will listen to all your wishes. Thanks a lot for helping me moving etc. after my flight was cancelled!

  • What you see is what you get ... fare price in a good area of Nairobi ... sherry was very helpful and accurate. Thanks a lot

  • Great spot, as advertised, I follwed directions and found check-in to be a breeze. Clean, nice, good internet, warm shower, microwave + fridge and stove all nice.

    Troy2018-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is in a wonderful location. Sherry and her team were very responsive to all of my requests. My only concern is the temperature of the water in the shower. Even after Sherry attempting to fix the issue, the water never was hot.

    Annabelle Renee2017-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Overall, The description is correct that it's very basic. The pictures don't represent the reality, but still it is clean and basic. The main issue we had was not having water the first night. Sherry was very communicative in trying to help solve the problem by talking me through steps to try to fix it, But it didn't work. She told me if it didn't work by morning then she would change my accommodation the next day. But that means no shower or toilet. So, she did try, but was fine to wait to fix it. If it's a tv that's fine, but I felt water was a more important issue. Eventually we took it into our own hands and went to the water source and somehow managed to fix it. Besides the water, everything was good. The neighborhood was nice And lots to do around it as she states. If it weren't for the water, I would have given a higher rating, But trying to fix it put a damper on my first evening.

  • This place is in a great location. It's a great budget place to stay. The pictures are accurate. We appreciated the great location as most of what we had to do was around Westlands. Sherry was quick to respond to any questions by SMS. Check in and check out were very easy.

    Andrea2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Good location and sherry is a good communicator with a good response time.

    Carolin's home felt very homely. It was nice and cool which made it a safe haven from the Kenyan sun, it felt great being able to go back "home" and cool down after a long day out.
