The Brandy Bus is an old-school bus that has been revamped into a cozy and distinct Airbnb home. Tucked away in the serene beautiful suburbs of Karen it is a perfect place to escape. The Bus is close to many tourist attractions, restaurants, bars and close to both airports. All shopping,banking etc are accessible nearby. There are two double beds upstairs and two small single beds downstairs that also serve as sofas. There is outdoor seating and an outdoor fireplace.
“Our stay was amazing. My husband and I live in the nearby Lang'ata area, and so we decided to cycle to Karen's place. The place itself is quiet, and serene, just what the doctor ordered. Nearby there is the Oloolua nature trail which is also fantastic. The general theme is quiet, stillness and calm and I would recommend this to all my urnbanite friends who need to get away from all the noise (without having to travel really far for the same). One thing though, my husband and I are tall people, so the bus did feel strangely low for us at first, but after some time you get over it. There are also quite a few rules to remember - do this, dont do that, etc, that we felt were a bit much considering we did not want to have mental space for it, so we were moving around just a little bit scared that we would forget something. But other than that, it was great Karen and her people check on you to make sure you are okay, and they also allowed us to stay on longer on our check out day. So, we looooved it and would do it again!”
The River Cottage is situated right next door to Hemingways Hotel; the lush surroundings, the beautiful river, the tall trees, fire place, outdoor lounge area and cosy decor contrast the noisy hustle and bustle of Nairobi. You’ll love The River Cottage' s unique design, combined with a sense of adventure.
“Jonathan was an amazing host! He went out of his way to make us feel welcome and open his home to us. The River Cottage is one of the fewer places we've been where the host went out of their way to stock up the fridge with grocery basics that went a long way to make us feel welcome and at home. The cottage itself is located in a serene environment with lots of things to do within walking distance of the premises. The animals (Ziggy and crew) were super friendly and kept us company throughout our stay! We're definitely looking forward to our next stay. It was the perfect in-the-city but out of town experience!”

“The Nest is amazing. A truly wonderful, restoring and nurturing space with lots of unique and thoughtful features. Mama Rahab took amazing care of everything needed and Anne was super responsive before and during the stay. Will definitely be going back for the green environment and fresh air :-)”
