Many of our readers have been asking us questions like; where can i get a cheap house in Nairobi to rent? Where can i get a cheap bedsitter or one bedroom in Nairobi to rent? etc. Most of these questions go an answered because Kenyayote does not rent houses in Nairobi nor do we have connections with tenants.
But today we have decided to this piece that will help you to locate cheap rental houses for students or those who beginning a family.
First let get to know where exactly is the best place to rent a house in nairobi for easy accessibility to CBD.
There are 3 major roads that feed Nairobi CBD . Those are Jogoo road, Thika road and Mombasa road.
Houses to rent along Mombasa Road Nairobi
The main estates that feed Mombasa road are South b, South c, Imara Daima and Mlolongo. The costs of renting a bedsitter in south b and c areas range from 10-15k. But you will hardly get a bedsitter in these areas. So i a advice you to go for one bedroom which has its price ranging from 14k-22k.
On the other hand houses in Mlolongo are so cheap. Rent prices range from as low as 6k-17k for one bed room and bedsitter. South b and c areas are more secure and clean than Mlolongo. Fare From CBD to South B or C ranges from ksh. 20-50 depending on time and kind of Bus. It will take you 10 mins driving from town to south areas without jam. On the other hand it costs ksh. 50-80 to travel from cbd to Mlolongo. Living along Mombasa road however has one challenge which is frequent jam.
