“Nice place for a couple”

I stayed there with my wife for five days. Situated around 10km away from Nairobi City and a well secured place. Market, Laundry, Salon etc. located nearby. Easy access to Carnivore Restaurant, Giraffe Center, Mamba Village, Giraffe Center & Nairobi National park. Milly is friendly & really helpful. Although you can get more info about Nairobi from her had better plan your trip wisely.

“Safe place for a solo traveler”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Mili's place is best if you are a solo traveler given the location and space.
Worth for 25$.
You find markets, salons, gas station, and the Langata Hospital at a walking distance. Therefore it is convenient. You can also board on to a matatu for 50 KSH to get to Nairobi. Though the distance is short during peek traffic times it takes more than hour to get to the city. So if you are planning many visits towards Nairobi, then you would have to rethink about staying in Langata.

However there are several attractions that you could plan from here:
1. Nairobi National Park
2. Bomas of Kenya
3. Mamba Village (the crocodile farm)
4. The Carnivore restaurant - Best on Thursday evenings
5. The Giraffe Center

There is no laundry facility here, but you can ask for a bucket and do your own washing. Drying clothes is bit of a problem however.
The pantry is very tiny with a mini fridge, a single burner gas cooker, bread toaster and a coffee maker. You can prepare a simple meal with the given stuff.. but absolutely not enough if you are an Asian planning to cook a good meal.

Make sure you take towels, soap, shampoo and specially toilet paper.

Wifi connection is good.
You can request for a DVD player if necessary.

“Great for a couple a group of upto 4 students.”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

Millys Place is great for those students who go camping. For a group of up to 4 students or two couples- provides sufficient privacy. There are shopping and restaurants nearby. Some of the restaurants offer take out/away food and some deliver the food to your room. You can order via the phone. For Those who appreciate chicken American style-we have KFC nearby and they deliver.
The residential environment is clean, friendly and secure. Very accessible via local taxis and local transportation.
Milly herself is readily available and easily reachable to speedily address any concerns.

“Basic small apartment with friendly and helpful host”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

This is a small apartment attached to Milly's house. My wife and I stayed in the bedroom and paid a small extra one time charge ($25) for a bed in the living room for our 2 children - we later removed the bed and used a mattress which we could pick up in the day. There is also bathroom with hot water and small kitchenette. Milly is helpful for arranging/advising transport by car or matatu ... very nice to have her always available. She gave us some fresh eggs from her chickens and a couple of nice meals as well. A swimming club is walking distance (150 KS for day use). Location is not as per TripAdvisor map; actual location is just off Langata Rd near Langata Hospital (about half way between Wilson Airport and Nairobi Nat Park main entrance - either one an easy 20 KS matatu ride away). Nairobi town is from 30 min to 2 hours away by matatu (50-70 KS), so suggest you avoid the trip during morning or evening rush hour.
Overall a nice 4 day stay there... and you will fall in love with Milly's sweet 3 year old daughter, Nikki.
