About the property

1 Bed, 1 Bath, surrounded by greenery yet in the heart of the city

Enjoy Nairobi from the cosy comfort of this bungalow cottage near Yaya Centre, the heart of the city. Minutes on foot from dining, shopping & entertainment, the unbeatable location offers an entire private unit, spacious interiors, breakfast, hi-speed wifi, parking, an oasis of greenery, and the best Ethiopian coffee at your doorstep. Just 15 minutes from the city centre thanks to Uber & nearby public transit. Perfect for business travellers, solo adventurers and couples.


Spacious, private, impeccably clean, recently renovated, cosy and quiet for that relaxed, let-your-hair-down feel after a bustling Nairobi day.

Sleep in gentle silence and wake to the self-service breakfast just for you. Work from home at the modern laptop area with unlimited hi-speed wi-fi or sink into the plump armchairs and enjoy cable movies/news. Relax on the patio or get a feel of the local vibe from nearby shopping, dining and all-hours entertainment.


The entire unit is yours.

Privacy, a key to your door, come-and-go as you please, 24-hour check-in, security + doorman, unlimited hi-speed wi-fi, a beautiful lounge, bedroom, kitchenette, modern bathroom and patio, free and secure parking, and a sunny garden. You'll love this place; nestled in the greenery yet minutes from all conveniences.


I am on-site though will seldom see guests unless they would like me to, then I am happy to catch-up over a cuppa delicious Kenyan tea or "kokocinno" (secret recipe!) on me.


- Breakfast is ready when you are, right in the kitchenette: tea, coffee, juice, rolls/local delicacy equivalent, jam, butter, fruit, yoghurt, cereals.

- Numerous restaurants within short walking distance, with options for every budget and taste. Discover the Ethiopian coffee right outside, Dial-a-Delivery, log onto JumiaFood 24/7. (Do allow plenty of time for delivery).

- Groceries are a stone's throw away: the neighbourhood kiosk for last-minute essentials, a vast selection at Yaya Centre, Nakumatt Prestige Plaza, Ad-life Plaza, Uchumi Supermarket etc.

- Laundry, housekeeping, shoe-shining, ironing, driver service available at a reasonable fee. In the spirit of sharing the benefits of this small business, I make no money off these and amounts are paid directly to the lovely staff.

- If they appear, the ancient dog and three slightly stand-offish cats won't bother you; their space is outside, never in the unit. Still, they are delightful even at a distance and you may spot them up to their antics.


Yaya Centre/Kilimani/Upper Hill is a blended residential-commercial borough, in a quiet, leafy area. For a morning jog/walk, look no further than right outside the compound. You are a short hop from great shopping, dining and leisure, without the city hubbub and traffic. Major offices minutes away on foot: Andela, IHub, Dalberg, Upper Hill Commercial District etc.


The neighbourhood is walkable and for distances, Uber and Lyft are easy.

Public transit stops for commuter buses & matatus are 400m away.

Airport pick-up/drop-off/transfers around town available.

Beat traffic and dare a motorbike "bodaboda" ride!

About Betty


I'm a calm, quiet, practicing Catholic who welcomes all and lives by the Golden Rule. Born-and-raised in Nairobi I've lived and worked overseas and am now happy to be home to the warm temperatures and people of Kenya.

Je parle français et souhaites le bienvenue aux francophones.

My space offers the privacy of an entire unit, with impeccable standards of cleanliness and security, and an excellent location that is conveniently close to shopping, dining, entertainment and transit. Since guests enjoy an entire unit to themselves, my hosting style works well with independent, responsible, respectful travellers of all nationalities and backgrounds.

Why Betty chose Kilimani

I grew up here and decades later, I'm still here. I call it home, it's got family history, character and I warmth. Welcome!

What makes this bungalow unique

The convenient location and green surroundings make this place unlike any in all of Nairobi.
