Wonderful option if you're looking for a quiet spot. A bit outside the city center (taxi to center, about KES 500-600), this was once a family home located in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by similarly quiet private properties. Small nice garden, clean well appointed rooms (some are rather small, but this is all accurately described on their website) with comfy beds and very soft sheets and towels (often not true in Kenya), shared bathrooms with hot showers no bathtubs (also very clean), living room with TV if you wish, porch room, and umbrella'd table out in garden. Wireless internet access a godsend. Breakfast, varying from day to day including cereal, eggs, muffins, included in room rate. Lunch and dinner can be arranged, and were good. Seems like many guests are cheerful volunteer workers, and most seem to be out during the day. (Therefore this was a great place for me to work on my laptop without disturbance.) Extremely friendly managers and staff, can arrange various excursions or transport. Probably not the best option if you want ready access to active night life, and the nearest big shopping center (Yaya) is about a 20 min walk. Very highly recommended especially for those relishing a quiet "oasis" as a previous review called it.
