Nelson was one of the best people to come in contact with in Caracas. Although I came at one of the worst times yet in terms of the socio-economic situation, he still made a huge effort to help me out and give me good advice. Although I didn't stay at his place, he was one of my main 'guides' or...

I did not stay at the apartment, but I did use Nelson's excellent airport pickup service. His driver was exactly where he said he would be at the time specified, and you need someone reliable when you are visiting Caracas. By the way, visiting Venezuela safely and experiencing this amazing country in all it's glory is 100% possible if you...

Fact: Nelson was the translator for Aerosmith in Venezuela. He is also a great guy with all the help and advice needed for someone traveling to Venezuela for the first time. The apartment is perfectly located for walking around Caracas and has a/c. Nelson also picked us up from the airport. Why stay anywhere else?

I stayed at Nelson's Place for four nights in October 2014. It was an excellent experience and his delightful family is continuing to help me navigate the city of Caracas. If you are heading to the city, you should definitely stay here. Venezuelans, particularly those residing abroad, tend to paint a very bleak picture of their home country. This made...

I had always been very wary about going to Venezuela after hearing and reading about the high crime rates in Caracas. In fact, I was advised from Venezuelan friends not to go to Caracas. Fortunately, I chanced upon Nelson's website and with the help of Nelson, I had a wonderful time in Venezuela. I must clarify that I did not...

Perhaps what impressed me the most was Nelsons genuine willingness to help make your stay even better. During my stay Nelson didn't mind give up his time to give me insightful information and general tips, it´s evident he knows what he is talking about and he is a great host. In the rooms you enjoy privacy, tidiness and security. I...

Although we didn´t stay at Nelson´s Place, he booked us in to another local hotel and picked us up from the airport. He also brought currency for us at a good rate and said that as long as we were in Venezuela, he would help us out. If you want an organised, positive start to your trip in Venezuela (and...

Hi, I didn't stay in Nelson's place because it was full up but Nelson was very helpful in setting us up with an alternative hotel (La Floresta, which was perfectly fine for a night and in the most safe area according to all accounts) and gave up loads of time to discuss, advise and organise a trip to Angel Falls...

“Nelson upgraded me for free to the self-contained apartment. It was really nice, safe/ behind the same locked gate as Nelson and his parents and would be excellent value if you were paying full price.”
