Description

Split by the Kiou and Riara rivers, and spanning 340 acres, the Maywal Estate is one of the oldest extant estates near Nairobi. So near, in fact, that it straddles Kiambu and Nairobi City Couties. So old, in fact, that it’s designated as from the ‘pre-colonial’ era, originally founded by a Greek couple named Mammatas and Apostolos, now owned by a local group named Mawara, Maywal Estate has survived the real estate boom around Nairobi by focusing on quality (prices), productivity and efficiency (management). Over the years they’ve remained focused on coffee, despite the temptations to sell, only adding diary production to help bring in more monthly revenue against the annual coffee harvest.
