Nellie and her daughter Linda do an incredible job communicating and helping to make your stay in Nairobi a unique experience. If you are looking for a place to stay for long or short trips this apartment is absolutely perfect. Nellie is welcoming and kind and gives so much helpful advice about how to really experience the best of Nairobi and Kenya. Thank you for the incredible stay.

The apartment was great! Clean and beautifully decorated. Our only disappointment was that Nellie herself was away. We had wanted to stay in this place because we hoped to meet and learn some from her about Nairobi, and Kenya in general. She seemed from her write up and reviews to be a great person to meet. Maybe next time! We never got to meet Darren, but he left the key where we could get it, and he arranged a drive for us from the airport for 2:00 am. Breakfast food in the fridge. A little problem with hot water, but Darren got back to us quickly by email. A safe feeling Area, we walked to the center in around 25 minutes. Thank you for the use of your beautiful place.

Nellie was really a wonderful host. She was very helpful and most of the time around when you needed some assistance. She is such a jovial and took me in as part of her family. I will definately go back to her appartment when in nairobi. Nellie's place is located in a perfect area with tight security. Quiet location with quick proximity to the city. Public transport is just 5 minutes way by walk. Taxis are also in close proximity or you can use ueber which is cheaper than taxis. The rooms are spacious and bathroom/toilet very clean. Highly recommend Nellie's appartment. You will love it.

Nellie made me feel very welcome and comfortable in her home. She has a lovely house and I felt really at ease there and in my room. Nellie is great. She is a lovely person. We often chatted, eat together when convenient, and she cooked some of her delicious food :-). At the same time she gives you space and let's you do your own thing. I really felt sad when I had to leave, wished I could have stayed longer - but sure we will stay in touch. I also met some of her friends and family, who were all great people. The main reason I went here was because of all good reviews about Nellie, and all of it was true. It was my first time in Nairobi, and she made me feel at home, safe and always gave very useful advice about directions/nice things to do, etc. Other practical info: It is super clean, good internet, good bed, a safe area, supermarket close by and you can can catch a matatu to town very easily in mornings. All in all, great experience and 100% recommendable

Nelly was a fabulous and welcoming host and made every effort to make me feel at home. and ensure I had a comfortable stay. I was working in Nairobi for a few weeks and her apartment was a convenient, quiet and secure spot. The room was spacious and spotless as was the bathroom and kitchen. I enjoyed meeting some of her family (children and grandkids) who come over for Sunday lunch most weeks. All in all it was a great stay where you really feel part of the family.

From the day I walked into Aunty Nellie's house, she made me feel like family. Her entire family took me in as one of their own, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at her place. I definitely have a place I can call home now in Nairobi!

Nellie is an absolute joy! She is a lovely host and welcomed me with open arms (literally!). She was full of information regarding transportation and local things to do. She's a fantastic cook and frequently invited me to dine with her. The room was clean and very comfortable and overall it was just simply a lovely experience! Thank you Nellie!!!!

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.
