About our home

Nairobi, Kenya is one of the fastest growing cities in the world, but it still maintains its close connection to nature. From our apartment, in the heart of the Kilimani neighborhood, you can take a five-minute walk to an upscale shopping center with a cafe, bakery, grocery store, bookstore, butcher, and more. Or you can spend the afternoon reading on our sunny balcony, relaxing by the pool, or - just 20 minutes down the road - searching for lions at the Nairobi National Park. (We'll leave you the keys for our 4x4 jeep!)

We are a young American couple who've lived in this safe, spacious apartment for over two years. The master and guest bedrooms each feature a queen-sized bed and an en suite bathroom. The third bedroom is our infant son's nursery, but can also be made up with two twin beds. The kitchen and dining area get great morning sun... perfect for enjoying a cup of Kenyan coffee. Our art-filled living room overlooks the pool and is a great place to gather, unwind, and swap stories after a safari, a tour of downtown Nairobi, or a night out on the town.

Cleaning services and 24-hour security are included. We can recommend local safari companies and excursions. Karibu! Welcome!
