Condo/Apartment
The apartment is located in a secure and serene place (farmland), away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet quite accessible to the city. It has everything you would find in a modern apartment in the city. Guest uses one bedroom and the rest of the shared space. Great for couples, solo adventurers or business professionals. Overlooks a lawn (can be a barbecue area) and a large kitchen garden. Next to a laundromat. Close to a gym at the Familia ya Ufariji (2 mins), pool and car wash at La Phila Square Restaurant (5 mins), Maziwa Police Post (2 mins), malls, forest, churches, hospitals, airports and universities. All are welcome....The apartment is located in a secure and serene place (farmland), away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet quite accessible to the city.

About the neighbourhood
The area is called Maziwa. It is very close to other farmland areas. You could drive to Kiambu, Limuru, Ruiru, Thika etc, to enjoy the scenery and fresh air. It is in close proximity to malls like Thika Road Mall, Garden City Mall, Mountain Mall, Ciata City Mall, Naivas Supermarket, etc. It is also close to open air markets at Kahawa West and Githurai 44. The Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Wilson Airport are now easily accessible through various routes/roads. The Madaraka Express Train leaves the city center for other counties (in the morning) and express (in the afternoon) with a final destination of Mombasa.
Getting around
The property has lots of parking space. It is located off the Northern Bypass Road (where you can get a matatu), a walking distance of about 15 minutes. Please note that motorcycle riders are in the area every 5-10 minutes and you can hitch a ride to the bus stage or you could just have a taxi pick you up at home. The property is about 15 minutes away from the city when the road is clear. It is accessible to public transportation (matatu, taxis, Uber, Little Cab, Taxify, motorcycle riders/boda boda, tuk tuks (rickshaws) etc).
