This was the second time that we leased this house. The unit is on a gated community with its on its own compound. It has between 15 minutes to 45 minutes access to the CBD depending on traffic.
The owner lives in the same gated community and he is always on standby should you need any assistance - his house is a 5 minutes walk away. The house is large enough to accommodate a group of 6 though I was leasing it with my family of four ( 2 children and two adults).
All that is listed on the site about this house is provided as it is.
Maybe one downside of the unit is that the cheap public transport that is available just outside the main gate is chaotic (matatus) and not well organized: I recommend that you rely on UBER transport that is available via the normal UBER online platform, this will cost you between $3 to $5 a single ride to Nairobi CBD.
I and my family, (my wife and two sons), stayed here for 7 days. The place proved to be perfect location as a town house - not far from the city center yet very quiet most of the day and night. We had very good silent nights. We also had generally cheap and convenient transportation system to and from the city center.
The house is a spacious, Master ensuite, 3 bedroomed, ground+1 type of house with its own gate and small compound. The dining, living room and kitchen are in ground floor while all the 3 bedrooms are upstairs.There is also a back yard with some 3 servant rooms though we did not need it - we only used this back yard to do our laundry.
The owner of the house, (who stays in another house within the same complex), was very welcoming and full of life - he and his wife made us feel comfortable - he even provided a dedicated phone and line number where we could reach him any time.
The only problem is that the public transport is right by the main gate BUT if you are not used to using the public transport system in Nairobi, the 'Matatus' - as they are known - with their loud music maybe very disturbing and getting the 'tourist type' taxis may not be easy.
We are planning on booking the same house for our next vacation, because we thought that if offered more than we had asked for.
