“Good location + great value = awesome stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I travel to Kenya every year with a small team to work at an orphanage. The place I usually stay at raised the prices and wouldn't negotiate a lower cost, so I had to find another place. After searching online, I found this amazing deal that sounded too good to be true. It turns out that it was more than I could have hoped! The apartment owner, Oscar, knew we had a late flight arrival and had some groceries for breakfast the next morning waiting for us in the kitchen! Oscar gave us a parting gift before we left which blessed us more than we ever could have blessed him. We had many morning departures and late night arrivals from the apartment, and the neighbors and staff were very understanding. I will definitely try to rent here again! Thank you Oscar!

“Very nice apartment, great location, good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We rented this apartment for a month during February/March, 2013. We used it as a base for journeys in Kenya and East Africa. We had 4 people staying in the apartment. We were very satisfied. The apartment met all of our needs. The layout of the place was as indicated in the promotional materials. The bedrooms (4) were comfortable, the bathrooms functional, the kitchen was very functional, and the living and dinette areas were more then adequate. The best feature of the apartment is a nice outdoor patio. We often sat out there in the cool evening breeze. The wireless internet work very well and was pretty fast. There is also a large television with local and satellite channels available. A person came each week to clean, empty the garbage, and clean the towels and sheets. She a very pleasant.

The Apartment is located off Riara Road in a gated complex (Riara Downs) with a security guard. The best aspect of the location is that the Junction Mall is located just across the Riara Road. The mall has many stores including a Nakumatt, a large grocery store. There are also several ATMs at the mall as well as a currency exchange office. The Dagoretti Corner bus and matatu stage area is next to the mall. This made getting on a bus to downtown Nairobi or Karen quite convenient.

The only caveat I would offer is that the apartment is located on the top floor of the apartment building and the walk up the 4 flights of stairs a couple of times a day got tedious. In addition, the walk from the apartment to the entrance gate is up a long uphill grade. If you have mobility issues, this may be a real problem.

Other then that, I cannot think of a better location for exploring Nairobi and East Africa. The owner, Oscar, was very attentive and kept in touch throughout our stay. We arrived late at night the first day and he was there to meet us and explain all of the features of the apartment. We could always call Oscar if we had a question or problem. If I would come back to Nairobi, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
