Runda Estate is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in Nairobi. The homes and buildings in this neighborhood can only be described as palatial with well manicured gardens, and clean, well maintained streets courtesy of Runda Water, a local company that provides services to the residents.
Situated in the Westlands Division of Nairobi, it is bounded by Limuru Road to the west, Ruaka Road to the south, Kiambu Road to the east, and coffee plantations to the north. The greater Runda area encompasses Closeburn Estate, Mimosa and Old Runda to the west, Mumwe and Whispers to the south, and New Runda and Muringa to the east.
While a significant number of the houses are owner occupied, Runda is also a favorite with the expatriate community looking for rental housing, perhaps due to its proximity to the UNON Offices in Gigiri, and a number of Foreign Missions located in this side of Nairobi. Typical rent for housing here ranges between Ksh 200,000 and Ksh 400,000 per month.
Village Market on Limuru Road. At least one of the major supermarkets in Kenya has a branch in this shopping mall.
