Shiko was an excellent communicator, all questions were responded to quickly and accurately. The apartment was just as seen in the pictures, it was a lovely place to stay; me and my family enjoyed our experience.
The beds were very comfy, the free WiFi and TV channels were appreciated, we were also thankful for the bread, eggs and fresh flowers we found.
The neighborhood was quiet and it did feel secure while we were there. The Junction Mall was close by and the matatu (bus) stop was right at the gate when i wanted to go to town.
I would say this is a good choice for any traveler heading to Nairobi.
Shiko’s Forest View Apartment was one of the most seamless airbnb experiences. Shiko was not only available via phone but incredibly helpful leading up to the trip and throughout our weeklong stay. The apartment is along Ngong Road, meaning easy to get to (traffic aside) and shopping needs are just down the road at Junction Mall. It was the little amenities at the house and thoughtfulness that really sets Shiko’s listing apart from others in Nairobi. Highly recommend staying at her place!
Shiko was a great host; very organised and quick to answer all my questions and respond to all my queries. The apartment was fantastic - clean, homely, well decorated and everything I needed was provided (including some eggs and bread). I would definitely recommend staying here. The location was also great - close to Junction shopping centre and with plenty of public transport options at the front gate.

Shiku was an accommodating and gracious host. Not only did she provide the amenities she advertised but she also kindly provided additional services, including catering services, that made our stay incredibly enjoyable.
She responded to inquiries in a timely fashion and was very professional and polite each time.
She is a very thoughtful host. There were supplies available upon arrival - enough to make at least one breakfast meal. The apartment was impeccably maintained and the building safe and well kept.
I would definitely stay at Shiku's place on my next trip to Nairobi.
Thanks for being a fantasy host!
Communication was easy with my host, the neighborhood was pleasant, easy distance from the mall. It was the perfect place for our family to be together over the weekend, plus I loved the fact that we could cook and the kitchen was very well stocked!
Nice apartment, very clean and spacious. Had a pleasant stay and would recommend to others. Is on Ngong Rd. In one direction you can go to the Karen Mall with some nice cafes and grocery store..in the other direction is the Junction Mall. to go to either mall Just hop on the frequent mini-buses for 20sh or so instead of expensive taxis.
The apartment was exactly as described. Shiko and her team made sure my family and I were welcome e.g. lovely fresh flowers, clean towels, stocked bathrooms. We also requested items for the kitchen which were purchased promptly and other accommodations were met with similar effectiveness. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Only downfall, which is out of Shiko's control, is the traffic on Ngong Rd.
