From the start, customer service stood out as exceptional. We were approx. 1.5 hours late off of our flight because of visa lines and luggage issues, but our driver was still standing waiting for us with his sign and a smile. Upon our arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and were provided with comfortable, clean accomodations. Breakfasts were great...

It is wonderful in all aspects and services. From personal in general, beginning with the gate keeper to the owners. Moses the cooker and his assistant, they maintain the small kitchen in the best conditions and very clean. You will have the best breakfast in town, including service, presentation, quality, quantity,variety and flavor. Moses fried eggs are cooked with all...

I was in Kenya for a reunion, revisiting friends and places from the 70s when I attended high school in Nairobi. It was a first visit for my husband. We were looking for a place to stay that was more in tune with a local experience - definitely not another hotel that might as well be in Seattle or Amsterdam....

The staff at Sandavy are absolutely wonderful. Phyllis is an amazing hostess, Peter's smile could light up the sky, and Moses makes some killer fried eggs. We had a wonderful stay at Sandavy-- it's a very secure place, with a family feel to the way they do business (though if boundaries are important to you, you can have that too)....

Overall happy with the stay. This place is quite basic bare bones but had all the essentials and was very affordable. The location is in a nicer part of town.

The staff provide excellent service and respond to all questions and concerns. They go the extra mile to ensure a great experience in Kenya. The food is excellent and affordable (for dinner).

This well maintained guesthouse, situated far enough from the city centre to feel safe, but close enough to get to the city centre by bus in less than 30 minutes, has been the one place for me to hide away for the hectic city life. Not that it's deserted as I have been hardly alone in the guesthouse for the...

I stayed at Sandavy Guesthouse in between my safaris during December 2009. The guesthouse has been lovingly restored and the attention to detail is second to none. During my various stays I stayed in the Greater Flamingo, Lesser Flamingo and Cordon Bleu rooms. Each room was very comfortable, clean and private. The staff couldn't do enough for me, they were...
