BEFORE BOOKING OUR PLACE
*Please take a good look at ALL the details of this property and confirm that you are okay with the location and All the of the house rules and vital country information. This is to ensure that you will have a smooth arrival, be a good fit and really enjoy your stay with us, knowing what to expect and what is expected of you.
Kindly note that this place is an apartment located near Kenya's main international airport, JKIA airport, which, as expected is also not near to the city's upmarket areas or Nairobi's CBD. If you have an issue with this, then I'm sorry this may not be right the listing for you.
The space is perfect for both short-term and longer-term travelers and for anyone comfortable with a more authentic and local Kenyan vibe; If this is something you'd naturally enjoy, then this is probably the perfect listing for you :)
To get to the apartment from the airport or Nairobi CBD for instance, you drive through a local market, where the vendors either strip their wares on a mat by the roadside, or a makeshift structure.
This not only gives you an opportunity to meet the very friendly shoppers and vendors in their real element; but also is a chance to buy some fresh produce and come make yourself a gourmet meal in our fully equipped kitchen.
One bedroom is en suite. There is also a separate shower and toilet for use by the second bedroom occupants. Both bedrooms include large wardrobes to store your clothing.The windows are large enough to let in natural sunlight; but also have very beautiful curtains to block out the sun.
The blue themed living room is beguiling, relaxing, and alluring. By creating a calming harmonious vibe, it makes you wanna take a seat and get a glass of chilled tropical juice or a bowl of hot soup and chat the day away with family and/or friends. Comfortable seating on the locally hand-made couches also make reading, playing a board game, or conversing with loved ones a pleasant pastime.
The dining table offers you a perfect place to enjoy your meal. A rattan basket of fresh fruits in season sets the mood for your visit and is available for you to enjoy :)
A complimentary breakfast is included in the room price. The kitchen is fully stocked with basic ingredients such as milk, eggs, tea, coffee, etc. and you are welcome to prepare your breakfast.
Delicious lunches and dinners with a Kenyan touch are also available at an additional cost. Kindly pay for and make your requests for Lunch and/or dinner from our menu list by 3:00 pm the day before; should you like to take advantage of these special offers.
