We stayed in total 4 nights at Nellie's place. What I can say is: if you are looking for a second home and a second family, this is the place to go. Nellie welcomed us very warmly, was always available an very responsive even before our arrival. During our stay she really did everything to make us feel home to the point that she is now our "aunty Nellie". The place is super safe with a gard at the entrance and it was easy to to move from one place to another in limited time as the appartement is well located. I highly recommand you Nellie's place...You will probably extend your stay there as we did!

I really enjoy these 3-days experience. Nellie is so great and I feel like I'm part of her family. Also, I love the restaurant her son recommended to us, which was the best jazz I've ever heard in Nairobi!

Shuwen, I miss you. Three days was too short. Come for longer so we can bond and have a fantastic time together.

We contacted Nellie as soon as we arrived Nairobi and she directed us to her house, very welcoming lady in a nice apartment located in a very good and secure upperclass neibourhood. The connection clicked instantly with Nellie after a few hours took off to out appointments in Nairobi. We had estimated staying in Nairobi for a month and had booked her apartment for a month, but we're able to finish all the business in one day. We were concerned that Airbnb wouldn't refund the money, but Nellie was so nice that she refunded all the money and we were not charged at all. If you are going to Nairobi, try her. Very grounded lady and caring, we now communicate on a regular basis and now consider her my family now . Nellie thank you! I will only book your apartment when in Nairobi..

We stayed for 5 weeks at Nellie's when we were in Nairobi writing our master thesis. It was great! Nellie is a very social and outgoing hostess. She gave us lots of advice about Nairobi and how to get around. The rooms are very nice and clean and allows for privacy. We highly recommend Nellie regardless of whether you're staying for a short or long time. Next time we're going to Nairobi there is only one place to stay! Thank you Nellie and hope to see you soon again! /Erik and Axel

I enjoy cooking great family meals, in fact, if you choose to stay with me - you can count on being invited to join a lovely Sunday traditional Kenyan spread with my 3 and 7 year old grand kids (with their parents of course, I am not that crazy!). When I am not spoiling my grand kids - I am love traveling my favorite destinations so far have been San Diego, New York, Los Angeles, London, Sydney, Perth, Johannesburg (not necessarily in that order). I love conversation (read - I love politics - local and international...). Warning - if you are younger than my oldest daughter who is 46 - you can count on over-advise on how to navigate Nairobi, staying safe, the best places to eat etc. All in all, I will take it personally that you have a good time in Nairobi and you accomplish your goals- to the best of my ability.
