The minute you set foot here, you forget that you are in Nairobi. Usually, the city is busy bustling with traffic, skyscrapers, and high-rise apartments. But, Simkin’s backyard oozes a different kind of vibe.

Nairobi Dawn Chorus stirs childhood memories for everyone who visits. It is that powerful. Simkin confesses that his first treehouse was all for his children.

He wanted to create great memories for them with fun and plat in their backyard. Although they were little kids by then, they understand the importance of it all.

Interestingly, he never had a retreat perspective in mind. Not even after the first structure fell off, leaving striking repair costs.

Designing Of The Treehouse

When the first treehouse fell apart, he recalls spending Ksh2.5 million ($23,108) to make it better and stronger. And this was not long ago; it was during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Simkin took a week to come up with the current design. His daughter, according to Business Daily, was instrumental in the designing phase. Perhaps, she still loves the fantasy of the great times of the first treehouse.

After every bit of the design was clear, the dream of a new treehouse unfolded. Eight weeks of hard labor down, Loresho neighborhood got the fascinating Nairobi Dawn House.

From the entrance, trees all over the property fascinate you. And as you walk more into the compound, you bump into a large swimming pool and a beautiful garden.

Features Of The TreeHouse

Eventually, you get to the treehouse – the icing of the cake. The one-bedroom house is an architectural marvel. It is large, all wooden with tantalizing lounges and comfortable décor.

There is also a fireplace for warmth as temperatures are normally cool. It is between forests of trees which tell you of the good quality of the aura around. The air is fresh and calm.

The deck sets every moment you spend here right. It is simple with a wooded dining table and swinging chairs. You rock as the birds’ chirp and as the trees sing their special song for the blowing wind.

Simkin says they kept the design simple. But he did not forget of the beauty of simplicity. The treehouse’s furniture comes from a tree that fell off in the compound. Beds, tables all sit in Nairobi Chorus Dawn courtesy of the broken tree.

The fireplace is strategically placed facing a safari tent acting as the bedroom. You sleep soundly with warmth all through while the fireplace burns. if you wanna live the magical life of Nairobi’s Loresho, visit as soon as you can.
