Kenyan Homestays

Tammy's Homestay, Nairobi

Tammy's HomestayTammy’s Homestay is located in the serene and leafy suburb of Muthaiga, Nairobi. Her 8 bed-roomed townhouse home has enough space to hold a small wedding in the green front grounds leading up to the house. Moving inside, the house has two different wings separated by the main kitchen, dining room and living room. The main wing is occupied by the family leaving the guest wing free for use.

Privacy is guaranteed as guests have access to the parking lot which leads to their own door and rooms. The two huge rooms are all self-contained with the larger room containing 2 beds and a double decker while the other has two single beds. The kitchenette has a fridge and can be used to prepare light meals every now and then.

Back to the other side, two rooms are available with the first containing two single beds and a desktop while the other has a double bed overlooking a telly. Hot water is available which is heated by solar energy.

Missionaries looking for long term accommodation or researchers seeking a quiet place to focus on their work will especially love the peace & weather of Muthaiga. The same goes for individuals who are working at the United Nations Gigiri office which is only 15 minutes drive from this homestay.

Close by is Karura Forest which offers a good excuse for an idyllic day. It makes for a great picnic site nestling among the bamboo forest with monkeys & antelopes for company. A picturesque waterfall, bike and nature trails and the historic Mau Mau Caves enable Karura Forest to offer something for everyone.
