Inside Sh2.7 million Kajiado bed time facility that charges over Sh20,000 per night

In Ngong, Kajiado County sits a container-made Airbnb property that has become a favorite chill spot among revelers looking for a more relaxing getaway outside the city.

The luxury facility, which is reportedly worth over Sh2.7 million, is owned by Ed Hough, a car enthusiast, and his wife, Moon Hough, a travel enthusiast.

According to reports, the couple got the unique idea from YouTube. They then acquired the shipping container and began transforming it into an Airbnb facility to offer Kenyan revelers a new taste of leisure.

“My husband loves learning from videos he sees on YouTube and applying what he learns. We employed experts for the more technical jobs, of course, like building the shipping containers,” Moon stated.


The facility features attractive interiors that have seen it featured in various music videos.

“I love how Nairobi’s coolest come and stay in our property. We’ve had music videos filmed here, Kenya’s elite party here, and fashion brands use it as a shoot location,” Moon Hough said.

Moon revealed that the Airbnb is often booked throughout the month, adding that her secret was constantly maintaining it by decorating it with local mitumba market.

To spend a night at the facility, one will reportedly part ways with about Sh20,600 (USD160). The area also offers visitors a glimpse of several animals roaming nearby.

“Guests can also play farmer during their stay by picking home-grown veggies in the garden, milking the goats on site, or collecting eggs from the chicken coop,” moon told business insider.

Notably, the couple runs Safari Series, the only safari camp named in the UK newspaper’s list of Best Holiday Destinations for 2023.
