Jambo! I am single working professional living in a bungalow style home nestled at the foot of the Ngong hills (made famous in the movie "Out of Africa"), off Magadi road. I live in a safe, quiet, serene location; a gated community about 40 minute drive from the city center –Nairobi but still very close to public transportation (matatus and taxis). It’s a peaceful area away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still close to Karen and the Bomas area (20 min drive) for shopping, restaurants and other cultural activities such as the Nairobi National Park, Giraffe Centre, Karen Blixen museum and the Bomas of Kenya. If you enjoy the outdoors and seeing how different cultures live, we can hike the Ngong hills with breathtaking views of the Great Rift Valley and you can also discover more about the Maasai culture as they are the largest community in my area. Despite my work, I can make time to show you around. I truly believe this heart of mine was meant to travel the world! There is nothing like it. Everyday is a school day, there is so much to learn so many people to meet and so much to discover. I believe my exposure to different cultures over the years has made me the person that I am today and I am better off because of it. I consider myself to be a friendly, down to earth individual who loves to meet new people. I LOVE TO LAUGH! ITS THE BEST CURE!!! My facilities can cater to singles, couples, students, working professionals, volunteers and travelers. You name it, I accommodate you. I am an avid traveler and I enjoy meeting new people and learning about different cultures. I am a great base for travelers stopping over on their way for a safari or on their way home at the end of a safari. I have 2 fully furnished rooms with a shared bathroom. The rooms are private, clean and comfortable. You'll also get to taste my mother's great rice dish (Pilau) :D

            The SpaceThe house runs on solar and wind power and we catch and store all our own water; so very eco friendly. The shower runs on an instant gas heater so no need to light a fire for hot water. The area is very safe to go walking on top of the cliff or if you are up for more energetic exercise then you can hike in and out of the valley, we have a few regulars who bring their mountain bikes or motor bikes to explore the area also. We are located only 10 minutes from Champagne Park an up and coming 4x4 off road centre and rally event location. Guest AccessGuests have access to the entire holiday home and 10 acres of our property including the dam. Much of the area is not fenced so you are free to go for long walks either on top of the cliff or down into the valley. Interaction with GuestsWe live next door to the holiday home and are available if guests need anything. We also run a Solar Power project in our local community called Napenda Solar Community. Guests are more than welcome to participate in the project or have a chat to us about what we are doing. We also have 2 dogs, Sally and Turbo, who would love to take you for walks around the area and show you their favourite areas like the dam! The NeighborhoodSituated in the middle of Masai Land 1 hour from Nairobi, the area is classic Africa with Acacia trees, zebra, eland, antelope, gazelles, an abundance of wildlife and the occasional ostrich roam freely throughout the area. We are very close to Champagne 4x4 Park where several 4x4, off road and rallying events are held throughout the year. It is also home to the amazing Masai 7s rugby event! Getting AroundThere is public transport very in the morning heading to Kiserian our nearest town about 20kms away and again in the late afternoon however we do recommend you have your own vehicle. Transfers can be arranged for those who don't have their own vehicle. Other Things to NoteThe house is 1 hour from Nairobi, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Wilson Airport in a safe rural location. Transfers to and from Nairobi or airports are available upon request.

            The SpaceSet on a 43 acre piece of land, Raha Mstarehe is one of the very few properties south of the Ngong Hills with its own pure and delicious spring water. Located in the vicinity of Il Masin village, Raha Mstarehe is 2,022 meters above sea level, and boasts a large house, a cottage, staff accommodation, a full-size squash court, a children’s play tower and mature gardens – all overlooking the spectacular view of the Great Rift Valley in secure surroundings. The main house (~300m2) has four bedrooms, dining room, sitting room with fireplace, very functional kitchen, spacious office, three full bathrooms, one toilet, a big loft with an extra double bed, two children’s beds and a children’s playroom area. A large patio stretches the full length of the western side of the house and includes a barbecue area, a small “sitting pool,” a patio “camp-fire,” terraced and shaded gardens integrated with the outdoor “chameleon room.” The eastern side of the house includes a second patio with stone benches and numerous terraced succulent and herb gardens, stone walls and paths. The cottage (~100m2) is a two-story, self-contained unit well suited for a couple, perhaps with young children. It contains one main bedroom and bathroom, open plan kitchen/dining-room/sitting room downstairs and an upstairs loft area with two single beds. A large patio with stone benches on the west side of the cottage offers wonderful, private outdoor space. The two-story wooden play tower is an attraction for children. Mature gardens offer numerous places to relax in sun or shade. And then we have the squash court, outdoor weight-lifting area, numerous locations ideal for yoga and nature trails that offer good opportunities for exercise and birding. Electricity is based on solar with backup connection to the grid (KPLC). Water is pumped from the spring down in the valley, and heated by the sun or, when very overcast, by a so-called "kuni booster" (rubbish/wood-burning-oven). Raha Mstarehe is perfect for a board meeting, a yoga retreat, team-building and other activities for smaller groups! The access road to the property is very rough. We want to emphasise that you require a four-wheel drive and a bit of patience to get there. Depending on traffic, allow between 75 and 90 minutes from Karen. Guest AccessThe whole property, including the squash court, is available for visitors. You will need to bring your own squash rackets and balls. Interaction with GuestsAs owners of the house we are available to answer any questions you might have - before or during your stay. You will also receive help and advise needed from an experienced and pleasant four-member staff: Our house caretaker/cook, Beatrice; our technical care-taker, Joseph, and his assistant, Mbugua; our askari (night guard) Jacob. The NeighborhoodWe have included some links to worthwhile day trips in the greater Kajiado and Rift Valley area in our Guidebook. There are no restaurants near by - you are not visiting Raha Mstarehe to "go out" at night other than on the balcony or patio to view the stars :-). Enjoy your surroundings where you are! Getting AroundA four-wheel drive vehicle is required to reach the property. If you need advice about a taxi company to take you there - and pick you up - don't hesitate to get in touch! Other Things to NoteUse of water, power and gas is included, but we ask you to be eco-friendly:-). All other consumables, including firewood, must be brought. Electric kettles, irons or other heavy power consumers are not permitted on the property - our solar system is not designed for this kind of use. A nearby Safaricom tower delivers excellent 3G signal for phone or internet connection, Airtel signal (Edge) is also available. For longer stays the activation of the satellite connection for TV may be negotiated. If required, a room can be arranged for guests' staff (e.g. driver, nanny). Please request ahead of your visit.
