Escape to an inner-city hideaway that feels like the middle of the countryside. The sense of seclusion is enhanced by a butterfly-filled wild garden next to a covered verandah. Jump into a pale green pool and swim to a thatched gazebo at the far end.
Note: There is currently no AC in the cottage, as Nairobi is quite cool and chilly at night, but a fan is provided.
