Kenyan Homestays

Mike's Homestay, Nairobi

front of the houseMike is a tourpreneur with a great homestay in Greenfields, an estate in the larger Doonholm area which is 10 minutes drive from the airport and 20 minutes from the Central Business District (assuming you've managed to beat the dreadful jams in Nairobi). He lives with his younger brother Andrew, a student in their 4 bed roomed house.

He is also big on healthy living, that is healthy foods so you will definitely get to sample all sorts of indigenous Kenyan foods and of course make any special requests every now and then. One of his specialties is Chapati combined with malenge and accompanied by beans cooked in coconut milk with boiled potatoes & peas as an alternative.

Transport to the CBD will be by public transport (Bus or Matatu) which costs no more than 50/= during the rush hour to and fro. Please check out Getting around in Kenya | Transportation options to learn more about the options which are available to you.

Back to the homestay, the house is equipped with Wi-Fi which offers 3G speeds and laundry services are available on request, unless you opt to do it yourself. At the same time, you will have access to your own room which has a built in wardrobe and pretty much free rein of the house. Plus Mike does not have lots of restrictions in his homestay so you will be able to come and go as you please.
