Company information

I am a diplomat by profession. I love being in a quiet, comfortable space, enjoying a good book. I get so much satisfaction from genuine reviews of my clients

Property information

We are so lucky to house expatriates coming on assignments at the UN Headquarters in Nairobi. Having done this for years, we actually feel as though we are UN staff as well. This clientele base has continuosly made our home decent, quiet and a Home away from Home.

Neighbourhood information

This is the Diplomatic neighbourhood. It is calm, quiet, cosmopolitan and is home to three huge malls. We now have the largest mall in Africa based in our neighbourhood. The UN HQ in Nairobi also is based here so we get some good security covering us.
