Stayed at the Villa in May 2012 with wife and two young ones. We needed a family/kid friendly place, a kitchen, serenity, safety and proximity to town. We got all that and some. The staff was very accomodating. The hosts even helped us with the little ones, harried as they were in their new surroundings. The host also gracefully became our unpaid local guide on cuisine and sight-seeing on the occassions we ventured into the city. Finally; since the place is right by the way to the airport, it is only a 15/20 minute quick ride to catch one's flight. In the infamous crawling Nairobi traffic, that is heaven-sent. We are definitely looking forward to staying there on our next visit in 2013.
