The location is very close to best shopping malls - The Village Market, Two Rivers, Garden City, and Thika Mall, and still very quiet. Rooms are spotlessly clean and large enough to feel yourself comfortable even for a long stay. The owners are very nice...More

A secure gated property set on beautiful grounds. We were warmly hosted by Josephine and she went the extra mile to help us with getting around Nairobi and further afield. We would recommend it to both single travellers and families.

About the neighbourhood
Runda Estate is one of the affluent neighborhoods in Nairobi. The homes and buildings in this neighborhood can only be described as palatial with well manicured gardens, and clean, well maintained streets. Situated in the Westlands Division of Nairobi, it is bounded by Limuru Road to the west, Runda is also a favorite with the expatriate community, diplomats and international staff looking for short-term and long term housing, perhaps due to its proximity to the UN Offices in Gigiri, and a number of Foreign Missions located in this side of Nairobi. Families with children can enjoy the safety and security of the environment, the joys of the relaxed, and beautiful surroundings, and an expansive compound with large garden
Getting around
SweetHomes is a walking distance to Karura Forest, an excellent place for picnics, bird watching and sight seeing. In this world, while it is so easy to get engrossed in the day to day work life we shouldn’t forget to take a break once in a while. Consider some small changes to help relax. Important attractions that visitors to Karura Forest enjoy are:

• Mau Mau caves
• Scenic waterfalls and rivers
• Forest walks
• Forest drives
• Bird watching
• Butterfly watching
• Cycling
• Running
• picnic
