“Nairobi's hidden secret”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Woodmere stands out as a little secret in a serene neighbourhood and captures the essence of a hideout from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. I fell in love with the greenery and attention to details in terms of the space and service. The people are exceptional and always remind me of "people taking care of people". You are welcome to share in this hidden secret.....

Room Tip: I like big beds and their king size does it for me.....:-)

Woodmere is a wonderful apartment complex with a friendly and accommodating staff. I have been staying at Woodmere for the last 3 years. It is my home away from home, as last year I spent 6 months out the year in Nairobi at Woodmere. I spend between 2 weeks to 2 months at a time, and I cannot say enough about the staff, the amenities and the general vibe of the complex. The apartments are well maintained and I always feel extremely safe and well taken care of. The pool is beautiful and the beds are comfortable. The apartments are fully stocked with everything you could possibly need for cooking meals and the wifi is very fast. The apartments feel lived in...but that's what makes them so cozy. The staff is amazing. From the guys in the rental office to the housekeepers, everyone is so kind and friendly. I always feel at home at Woodmere.

Woodmere is secure, clean, comfortable and in a great location. There's always taxis available and the staff is great. We stay there every time we're in town.

We regularly stay at Woodmere. Whether as a family, on business trips or collecting visors from the airport etc. Whenever we are there as a family we enjoy the homely atmosphere and space of the apartments. The single studios are getting ready for a lick of paint but are very convenient and secure for an overnight business trip. There are lots of good restaurants close by and if you feel like eating many takeaways will deliver.
Remember to take basic supplies including water. Would be fab if there was a little shop on site for these!

A home away from home Woodmere is an ideal place to stay if you have long stays in Nairobi. Fantastic service and rooms with a personal decor make you feel at home all the time. Management is discret yet effective. Highly recommended.

The website is a great idea. My family and me have been staying at Woodmere for the last 10 years quite regularly for short stay of 1 to 3 nights while visiting Nairobi. The architecture of the appartments is great same for furniture but with time the interior is looking a bit shabby specially kitchenets cutlery and door locks too. The water heaters are old and unefficient and are prob consuming a lot of electricity which will add to the price increase.

I would suggest that a small shop is installed at the office to offer some basic necessasity such as bread, butter, etc...
