Built in 1919, Rosslyn is one of Nairobi's oldest and most special surviving homes. Set in 2 acres of private gardens we are close to UN, Village Market and Westlands. We have 2 singles, 1 double & 1 bathroom with separate listings on airbnb
Rosslyn is one of the oldest character homes in Nairobi and it has been our family home for more than 50 years.
We offer bed and breakfast in a double room, 'Bruce's Room', with its own large verandah with seating for 7 or more.
The shared bathroom (only if we have other guests or family) with original claw foot bath and hand held shower and toilet is down the corridor of the courtyard. Oddly the bathroom has never had a basin but there is one in the bedroom adjacent!
Full English breakfast is a house specialty, fresh fruit, tea or freshly brewed fine Kenya coffee, cooked breakfast with our own free range eggs, toast, marmalades, muesli/oats/porridge are all available. If you have any dietary requirements please let us know at time of booking.
Rosslyn was used as the home and garden of 'The Constant Gardener' 2005 drama thriller film starring Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz who won an Oscar for her role.

Hi! I'm Bruce, Kenyan British, born and grew up in this beautiful country, educated in England before moving to New Zealand for 20 years where I was in business.
I'm married with 2 adult daughters and have lived in Kenya, England, France and New Zealand.
I love traveling, walking, keeping fit, tennis, red wine and good food, cycling & motorbiking, music, renovating old houses. I do yoga and meditate.
It's a real pleasure having people who appreciate the history and character of our homes choose to come and stay with us. We look forward to your visit.
