Wonderful accommodations and a great value. I love staying in places with others, and everyone was super friendly. Stayed at a couple of Charla’s places while I was waiting for my apartment to be ready. Would definitely recommend.
I immediately knew that I wanted to support Umoja House and after visiting their web site and reading the reviews. It was exactly as expected but with dash of spice. I will deff. stay again when I’m far from home. Thank you Charla for all that you do. 💕
Charla and Andrew are excellent hosts and they took great care of me when I needed them the most.
