A literal cross over to well known banks for easy and accessible transactions if need arises..

Sophia & Gabe were great hosts. Welcoming and very helpful. They even gave me lifts to nearby restaurants and malls.
Great location for access to business area and retail / entertainment. The room and home and location is as it is described.
Lovely accommodation with very friendly and accommodating hosts right in the best area of Nairobi
I had an incredible experience staying with Sophia and Gabe during my vacation in Kenya! Their home is wonderfully decorated, impeccably clean, and even better than it appears in the photos. In particular, the decor/furniture is locally made, tastefully chosen, and a treat to look at. Additionally, the wifi was plenty fast and reliable.
Sophia and Gabe were also excellent hosts with great ideas and advice about nearby activities and locales that I would enjoy the most. And of course, they made sure that I was happy with their home accommodations. I very much enjoyed conversing with Sophia and Gabe and instantly felt comfortable hanging out with them in their living room.
I must also specifically commend Gabe. I ran into an issue regarding my passport and Gabe literally came RUNNING through Central Business District to help me deal with local authorities and get me out of very very serious trouble. After this event, he even showed me around CBD! I will always be grateful for his kindness in helping me. Thanks Gabe!
As a solo traveler, I can't say enough about how much Sophia and Gabe contributed to my experience in Kenya. I am grateful I really got to know these two locals and would absolutely recommend them to my friends and family. I will definitely plan on staying with them again!
Sophia and Gibbs were tremendously welcoming. They arranged a taxi to collect me from the airport, provide a SIM card to get around, and gave me pointers whenever I needed so. Despite being very busy, I enjoyed our interactions and can only recommend others to stay here!
Gabe and Sophia are totally awesome. They really made me feel like home, and we became friends. Went out to eat, met their friends, and had nice conversations.
I highly recommend them, and would definitely go back. They are also located in westlands, near the national museum, and many other attractions, Nairobi night life, and so on. Also they were always helpful in guiding me around. The house is warm and rustic as described. On top of this they have a biweekly cleaning Service, which you can also get your laundry done, your room cleaned. 5 stars out of 5! Thank you guys for the great hospitality.
I absolutely LOVED staying with Sophia in Nairobi. I was in town for a 2 week business trip and wanted to stay someplace close to offices and also close to restaurants and shopping. I WALKED to both several meetings and social events - Amazing location! Second the INTERNET WAS FAST enough to watch the Blacklist on Sophia's Hulu Plus. The apartment is beautifully designed as you can see in the photos. It was kept very clean by frequent cleaners. I was able to always have washed clothes and sheets. The bed was comfy, the shower was hot, the security was very tight and completely safe. Most importantly Sophia and Gabe are wonderful people and wonderful hosts - truly made me feel at home in Nairobi.
5 Stars!!!! I look forward to returning!
A friend recommended this place, and Sophia was so welcoming and helpful during my week long visit to Nairobi. She provided a very comfortable room/bed and she helped me figure out the neighborhood, taxis and Java House. Her very clean and secure place was also indeed warm, quiet and restful. Internet worked well. My favorite part was our conversations in her living room, discussing our cultures, work, Nairobi, the world... I hope to stay connected!
