This treasure in the heart of Old Muthaiga is a charming three-bedroom cottage with a big garden and a beautiful balcony perfect for enjoying it. With the feel of a small lodge nestled on the edge of a beautiful forest, it’s not unheard of to see colobus monkeys as you enjoy an evening walk in the garden or around the neighbourhood, which is one of Nairobi’s oldest and most secure.

The Small House, or Nyumba Ndogo, features a bright, inviting interior and has a working fireplace for cosy nights in the sitting room and dining room. It can be fully furnished, with pieces that accent its natural beauty, or partially, depending on your needs.

The cottage has back up power and trusted staff to manage both the garden and laundry and cleaning services. It also has staff quarters for two, a car port and the garage has been converted into a beautiful studio to work, paint or write.
