Some time back, I made a thoughtless decision to live on my own in one of Nairobi’s posher areas. Some would call it a Loft, others a studio apartment but in reality, it was just an overpriced bedsitter with a faulty shower, a crook for a landlord, and very nosey neighbors
Regardless, it had beautiful pine wooden floors that glistened when hit by the afternoon Nairobi sun, a massive outwardly curved window that ran from the floor to ceiling, and a miniature kitchenette that mostly housed my favorite whisky at the time (American honey) does it still exist though?
PSA: someone buy me a bottle for old times sake🤗
Anywaaaay, with the knowledge of my desperate need to find a place in close proximity to my new job; the sleazy, short, light-skinned caretaker casually mentioned I was at risk of losing the “boujee” loft I hadn’t gotten a chance to see yet.
The intense back and forth between mind and heart lasted a whole 10 minutes then shortly after I secured this “catch of a house” I still hadn’t seen.
Despite the dumb move I did move in the following week! I know. I know … you thought this was a con story but much later, in the end, I still got conned out of my rent and deposit.
I suppose my recent trip to Western Kenya made me realize just how much I miss my own space. Despite disliking the actual travel process.
Anyway! Back to YOU in studio
If you ever find yourself in Kisumu and need a studio apartment or 1 bedroom apartment reach out to Yemo Stays @yemo_stays Instagram to book this gorgeous apartment. I have done due diligence FOR YOU! I stayed at this studio hosted by a lady named Dorcas. She was absolutely lovely and so was her brother.
Thank me later.
