This was my second stay. It's a nice, clean, simple place. Very good security and easy access by taxi/uber or public transportation. Fast and Reliable WiFi. But most importantly the host, Janet who is welcoming and responsive. I was not able to stay some of the days already booked and Janet was willing to block other days for me as make-up if needed. That was a great gesture and consideration

Don't underestimate this place. It's affordable and comfortable enough for anyone who would rather not waste money in some fancy place. I was impressed by Janet's sense of customer service. Kudos.

My stay at Janet's place was wonderful. She was friendly and informative. The location is close to public transportation. There was a Kiosk close by where you can buy milk and other groceries. The peace of mind, security and location are worth it!

This was my first time in an African country and using airbnb, so I was quite nervous... however, Janet was amazing! She welcomed me with open arms and provided me everything that I needed. I wanted to be immersed in a Kenyan home while I was here and it was exactly what I was looking for. I also didn't come with a plan to Nairobi and Janet helped me figure out exactly what I wanted to do and even woke me up so that I had enough time to do it (I was very jetlagged). The location felt very safe and her place had everything that I needed (including super fast wifi). It was very cheap to get to touristic destinations from her place on uber. If I ever happen to come back to Nairobi, I hope that I can stay at Janet's place!

Janet was kind enough to accommodate our late check-in. She was always available to answer out questions and assist with any concerns. I appreciated having the strong wifi signal as I had to work online during my short stay.

I am Kenyan and went to visit my family while introducing my boyfriend to Kenya and more so the wonderful fellow Kenyans! Janet did an awesome job of making us feel welcome. We arrived in Nairobi in the wee hours of the morning and Janet was there to welcome us with a warm cup of ginger tea and a friendly smile while she introduced us to our very clean and smart quarters. She even offered to make us breakfast but we were so jet lagged to wait for breakfast...sleep was calling. The accommodations are perfect for the budget conscious international traveler looking for a safe, secure place to rest and cleanup while exploring the bustling city of Nairobi over an extended stay. Janet provides all the necessities: refrigerator, gas stove, pots pans and utensils for cooking, wifi, television, as well as any special request you may have (in our case, laundry:). She’ll even help to arrange a safari for you! The location of her house is convenient for getting to Nairobi National Park, The Giraffe Center, Bomas of Kenya, David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Carnivore restaurant, downtown, comfortable mall shopping, and much, much more. We would stay again!
