“Heart warming and friendly”
Reviewed August 19, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

I had the pleasure to stay at Alice´s place for about 6 weeks in total. I tried to help out at the school she runs through her NGO which is for children who many come from difficult backgrounds and are raised up in extreme poverty. If you have the opportunity I definitely recommend that you visit the school and say hello to the children.

I enjoyed my time at her place and fully recommend it. It´s such a valuable experience and so much better than staying at an expensive hotels.

Alice is one of those unique persons I´ve met in my lifetime, who will not just stay with me in my memories but also in my heart. I miss Alice and her family dearly but when I think about them it always brings a smile to my face.

Staying with a guest for six weeks is a sign that the guest is super and departing from one another is always an emotional experience.It was wonderful to have such a guest and all the time was an extra warm day.The guest was hardworking,appreciative,compassionate and very supportive.Welcome back to Kenya again

“The best Kenyan home stay experience!”
Reviewed August 19, 2015 for a stay in November 2013

I had a great stay at Alice's home and family! She is the best host I have met during my trip through Africa, always happy and smiling, making sure that we were ok :) . The food was very nice too and the house is situated in a safe compound in Nairobi. I would defenitely recommend everyone who is planning a trip to Nairobi to stay here!
