I spent 10 days in Nairobi over the Christmas period and stayed at this lovely Bed and Breakfast ran by a husband and wife duo.
The house and grounds are lovely and peaceful and situated in a quiet, secure part of Nairobi, in Karen at the foothillls of the Ngong Hills.
The amenities are basic, but this is a clean and secure place with a simple but stunning garden one can relax in with the excellent weather
The owners are friendly, approachable and un-intrusive and on request will do what they can to help.
This was a highly affordable lovely experience for me, given the peak season in which I travelled to Kenya.
I highly recommend Margpher house
