I was traveling solo and was very happy when I saw my room The Greater Flamingo. It was clean, charming, airy and facing a well-kept garden. The place was quiet just as advertised. Pamela and Moses, the staff, were also very friendly. But my luck turned bad when a group of local college girls accompanied by an older woman, perhaps...

This is one of the most regrettable incidences that have ever happened at Sandavy and we highly regret and apologize about it. It is not once or twice that we have sent away ‘groups’ with agendas not conforming but this lady walked in and booked a group of young girls only to realize later that it was supposed to be...

When we arrived at the Sandavy Guest House we found a warm welcome from Marietta. Almost instantly we felt that we could relax, as if we were in the home of a friend or family. Marietta continued to make us feel at home by helping us in several different ways such as laundering several clothing items for us even though...

We just left Kenya a week ago after an incredible family holiday. We were based out of Sandavy Guesthouse which offers clean, basic accommodation and lovely staff. David was exceptional at helping to arrange our very specific trip and we are very grateful for his expertise and understanding.

We only stayed two nights at this quaint Guest house but had a great experience in a very short time. Everyone made us feel very welcome! Moses the chef prepared a tasty vegetarian dinner for us one night & we had nice breakfasts with good fruit and coffee. The location was quiet and peaceful with lovely gardens and the rooms...

Sandavy Guest house is a perfect place to stay while in Nairobi given that you don't need to stay in the middle of the city. I've stayed here many times since 2007, both with my family and with different groups of students, and I have never been disappointed. David and his staff are always treating you with utmost care and...

Sandavy guesthouse is a fantastic place to stay if you're on a budget and want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Situated in a peaceful garden, this guesthouse offers very homely accommodation and very friendly service. We stayed in the Greater Flamingo room which is an en suite double room: spacious, light and clean. Breakfast (included) was...

I've stayed here many times in the past few years and have always had a great experience. They are always very responsive and helpful when booking. They know a lot about the area and offer many reasonably priced trips around Nairobi (our favorite was a visit to the Kitengela Glass Company!). We were also able to store luggage for no...

We had a good experience staying at this guest house and would definitely go back as it was good value. We loved the cooks! I must say to me a guest house is a little more of a hotel whereas this is more of a hostel with dorms and bathrooms with cement floors. This was fine and they are a...
