Gacharage, Ruaka

This is a guide to rental houses in Gacharage, Ruaka.

It’s perfect if:

  • You don’t have Ksh 1,000 to pay an agent (or don’t see the need to).
  • You want to avoid conmen, who are all over.

If this sounds like you, don’t worry. I will show you where to find affordable single rooms, double rooms, bedsitters, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom houses.

Say for example you want a Ksh 8,000 bedsitter. Use this guide to identify the places that have a bedsitter going for Ksh 8,000 or less, then go there and see if there is a vacant one. 

Please note, all prices are in Kenya Shillings (Ksh) per month.


I’ll show you where to get:

          •Single rooms 4,000

          •Bedsitters 6,500

          •1 bedroom 13,000
