We stayed with David and Sandy for a couple of nights on our arrival in Nairobi in November. It was our first trip to Kenya and we found the accomodations to be pleasant and the staff very friendly and welcoming. Breakfasts in the morning were delicious and the location was a great place to launch from for our exploration of...

Stayed here in May of 2011. Hosts were fantastic. Accommodations were comfortable and clean. Wifi was a plus. Hosts were happy to store our luggage we were on safari. Also made breakfast and dinner when we requested it at reasonable prices. There was a fully stocked fridge with reasonably priced drinks at any time. Hosts also made all our tourist...

I stayed at Sandavy for one night in September. It is a nice and relaxing place to stay, and they look after you well. The food was good. The staff were all very helpful. The room was relaxing and I had a fantastic night's sleep there. It was great to have free use of the internet in the living room....

I would wholeheartedly agree with all of Carolyn's comments. This B&B far exceeded my expectations, everything from the safari to the world class meals was outstanding and you could not find a better value anywhere. The hospitality and friendliness of Sandi and David plus their entire staff was great, they made you feel welcome and right at home. They patiently...

The Sandavy is a calm oasis in the middle of bustling Nairobi. They have a variety of room styles and sizes to choose from. There is something for everyone. The rooms are kept immaculately clean, the decor is welcoming and the mattresses afford a great night's sleep. The bathrooms are likewise very clean and have HOT WATER SHOWERS, a commodity...

I did really enjoy the stay here and would recommend it overall but I felt a little let down by a couple of things that stopped me from giving it a very big recommendation. Firstly, I have to say that the rooms themselves are great and terrific value for money. I also have to comment that the staff member named...

This is a B&B. Who needs a 5 star hotel when Sandavy provides all you need? Booking via internet and paying your deposit up front can be dangerous. No need to worry about Sandavy, you are perfectly safe in their hands. We returned after being married at Karen, Nairobi 50 years ago and were treated like newly weds. David and...

Sandavy is a lovely guest house with beautiful gardens and fascinating guests. We met people working on various volunteer jobs and had many terrific conversations learning about their efforts and expanding our own horizons. The guest house is large and very comfortable.
