PLEASE NOTE: The purchase of Private Apartments via the Marketplace is a only supplement for those who have already purchased shared accommodation, either as a one month Program or as part of a Journey.
If you have booked 'Program Only' (ie. no shared accommodation), and looking to purchase a Private Apartment, please email email@example.com who will provide you with correct pricing and booking link.
How It Works
Just like our other accommodations in Nairobi, our "Private Apartment" options will be in the same building we are staying in for the month (around 2 mins away from the workspace). “Private Apartments” may be 1-bedroom or 2-bedroom apartments (that you will have all to yourself) depending on the availability in the building, but you are always guaranteed a private home for the month if you book this option. This building has elevator access.
Know Before You Book
By booking a private apartment, you are guaranteeing that you will receive your own apartment during your month-long stay. Pictures below are representative of what your apartment might look like, but your exact apartment will likely not be the exact one in the photos.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why does Remote Year offer private apartments?
Because our Remotes asked for it! We have received great feedback about your shared apartments, but we understand that there are circumstances where people are more comfortable living alone. Due to this, we always want to offer the option to live alone. Since these apartments cost us extra to book, we have to then charge extra for them.
Does a private apartment mean an upgrade?
No, all Remote Year apartments offer something unique and we will do our best to match you to the preferences you submit. Purchasing a private apartment just guarantees that you will not share your apartment, it’s not an ‘upgrade’ of any sort.
What if I have more questions before I buy a private apartment?
If you have any concerns or questions, feel free to reach out to the RY Team and they will be able to collect the answers you are looking for!
Will private apartments always cost the same?
No, the cost of private apartments always vary by city, month to month.
Can I get a refund if I change my mind after booking?
Private apartments are non-refundable once they are purchased. If for some reason the amenity we promised you is no longer available, we will of course refund you the amount of the purchase.
