Description

The Space

We are a private home for rent in Iten equipped to Western standards with tiled floors, electricity, flush toilet, hot shower and cooking. Guests enjoy the beautiful rural scenery and the privacy of their own space while having access to the running culture of Iten and near paragliding locations.

Guest Access

Iten, Kenya is the distance running Mecca of the world. Our cottage is on the main training route and convenient to Kamariny, Stadium and the High Altitude Training Center. Train with the best in the world. Also nearby are areas popular with paragliders.

Interaction with Guests

Since we use the cottage only when we are in Kenya doing volunteer work, we are not present when guests are there. Guests have 24 hour watchman, plus assistant watchman at night and also phone access to local manager, Kipchumba Sirma, and board officer, Vincent Kaitany, both of whom live nearby.

The Neighborhood

Iten, Kenya and Elgeiyo-Marakwet County have a pleasant highland climate year round, breathtaking scenery over the Rift Valley and escarpment, lots of fresh local produce and a very low crime rate. The perfect place to relax.

Getting Around

Motorbike and car taxis are readily available. Shuttles are available to nearby Eldoret for shopping, dining or nightlife.

Other Things to Note

The cottage is on the site of the future Simbolei Girls' High School. All rent proceeds go directly to help construct Simbolei Girls' and to pay for literacy outreach programs at local primary schools.

Place's rules

Our cottage is non-smoking. We do not allow pets except by special arrangement. Children are welcome with their families and there is no additional charge for children staying with parents.

About Andrea
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
