“clean, quiet spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

This is a fairly central location to get taxis and explore the rest of Nairobi. It was definitely in a quiet area. The house was very clean and we appreciated the fresh fruit and water when we arrived. We even left a bag for a week while we went to Mombasa and everything was safe and sound when we came back to pick it up.

“Nice but isolated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

I stayed there for a night after coming back from the Mara and before leaving Kenya. The place, although nice, is quite isolated: address difficult to find, and once you're in your room, you're quite on your own. Internet is provided through a USB small router (you may need to install the software). Breakfast is really poor.
However the cottage is spacious, and very clean. I noticed a room was upstairs, so it may be disturbing to share it with someone else you don't know. But if you travel with someone else who rent that room, this would be a good option (read the later review before mine). The owner was kind and arranged for me some logistical needs (transportation to the airport, visit to the local market, etc), but it was sometimes difficult to find and sometimes I felt I was alone in the property...
