How do I find a place to live in Kenya?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Our employer Kaluworks provided us a well furnished apartment in an expat compound in Tudor," said another person in Mombasa.

"Was born here so I am somewhat familiar with the areas, but after so many years away, use someone local that you trust. Keep in mind "Help" is not free in Kenya, even when people are supposed to do their job," remarked another foreigner who made the move to Nairobi, the whole country.

We've partnered with Explorastay, the largest aggregator of 1-12+ month stays. Compare listings and rental rates from 20+ accommodation sites in one search, including: Booking.com, VRBO, Expedia, UniPlaces, Spotahome, HousingAnywhere, Zumper and over a dozen more accommodation companies. Search rental properties in Kenya.
