“Home sweet home”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

Sandavy Guesthouse is a peaceful haven while visiting Nairobi. Sandy and David are wonderful hosts who know how to make you feel at home. Their guesthouse is clean, safe and inviting. Their gardens are lovely and their staff are warm and helpful. We really liked the "local" feel, including the delicious meals. We highly recommend this guesthouse...superb value, intimate feel and a great place to meet other travellers!

As a teacher I accompanied a group of 17 high school students along with one other teacher and we spent almost 2 weeks in Nairobi. David and Sandy were wonderful hosts, Moses made great food and we all felt comfortable and relaxed. Being able to create a safe and secure environment for my students was very important for us and this guest house felt like a home away from home after only a day or two. A fantastic experience!

We stayed with David and Sandy for a couple of nights on our arrival in Nairobi in November. It was our first trip to Kenya and we found the accomodations to be pleasant and the staff very friendly and welcoming. Breakfasts in the morning were delicious and the location was a great place to launch from for our exploration of Nairobi. Would highly recommend Sandavy to any friends who are planning to visit Nairobi!

Stayed here in May of 2011. Hosts were fantastic. Accommodations were comfortable and clean. Wifi was a plus. Hosts were happy to store our luggage we were on safari. Also made breakfast and dinner when we requested it at reasonable prices. There was a fully stocked fridge with reasonably priced drinks at any time. Hosts also made all our tourist arrangements in Nairobi and transport to Kampala. Highly recommend.

I stayed at Sandavy for one night in September. It is a nice and relaxing place to stay, and they look after you well. The food was good. The staff were all very helpful. The room was relaxing and I had a fantastic night's sleep there. It was great to have free use of the internet in the living room. I would recommend Sandavy as a great place to stay and much better and more personal than any hotel.

I would wholeheartedly agree with all of Carolyn's comments. This B&B far exceeded my expectations, everything from the safari to the world class meals was outstanding and you could not find a better value anywhere. The hospitality and friendliness of Sandi and David plus their entire staff was great, they made you feel welcome and right at home. They patiently answered all questions and made sure we were enjoying every minute of our time. Moses is a true delight, as are all of the staff. You could not ask for a better experience. I would highly recommend the SanDavy to meet all of your travel needs from lodging to safari's and even the tea plantation.

The Sandavy is a calm oasis in the middle of bustling Nairobi. They have a variety of room styles and sizes to choose from. There is something for everyone. The rooms are kept immaculately clean, the decor is welcoming and the mattresses afford a great night's sleep. The bathrooms are likewise very clean and have HOT WATER SHOWERS, a commodity not always available in Nairobi. The staff does a great job at making your stay an enjoyable one. The beautiful grounds are well maintained, they have excellent laundry service, there are actual plugs in your room for a hairdryer, and both Sandi and David bend over backwards to insure your stay is a memorable one. The best part, however, was Moses and his 5-star gourmet cooking. I am from the Bay Area in California where we have our choice of excellent restaurants. None of these however have anything on Moses. Everything he prepares is delicious, of excellent quality, and you need not worry about getting sick. He understands our Western stomachs and takes all the necessary precautions. You can eat "worry free".

If it's a safari you want then look no further. The Sandavy made all of our arrangements for a most memorable safari. We went on a three-day adventure to the Massai Mara and not only did we see ALL OF THE BIG 5 but, because of our guide's excellent wildlife expertise, we were also privlidged to witness the GREAT MIGRATION. Paul knew exactly when and where to take us to witness this exgtraordinary sight of a life time!

If you are considering Nairobi and want to feel snug in a wonderful home like environment, eat like a king, and experience the best wildlife that Kenya has to offer, then the Sandavy is exactly what you are looking for!

Room Tip: Just tell Sandi what your needs are and she will do the rest!
