Nawang Sherpa purchased this house in 2008
The property was exactly as pictured in the add. The beds were very firm but took only a night or two in which to adjust. The real value to Sherpa Villa is getting to know the Shirpa family. I could not have asked for a better hosts. They took me to local areas of interest and offered me a cell phone to use for emergencies or just to call home. All I had to do was go to the local cell phone shop and place more Nepali Rupees on the phone. The cost was very reasonable. The breakfasts were very adequate with choices ranging from eggs either boiled or fried, toast, juice, coffee, or tea. I was provided a daily English newspaper to read. The politeness of the family and their desire to make you feel welcome makes this a worthwhile place to stay. I was offered a chance to visit a Nepali orphanage which the Shirpa family supports and found this to be one of the highlights of my trip. Conversing in English was easily accomplished as the family members are acquainted with English terms. My stay was enjoyable thanks to Sherpa's willingness to Share Nepali culture.
I can recommend this house because of its family who is living there. Unfortunatley we never got to meet them because we were already in the plane towards Kathmandu when the earthquake happened and our plane turned back to Doha- but the family still went to the airport to see if we landed and were happy to hear , once we called them , that we are safe. Also the comunication before we came was excellent - we were really looking forward to meet them and to stay in their house. I totally recommend this place because of the warmth and unconplicated cancellation and refund. We will defintly come back once everything turns back to normal and we hope that we can meet then this great host . I hope Nepal is going to be soon a place where we can come with our son.
My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Pema! What a super sweet lady and wonderful hostess. The home is spacious and rooms are large and comfy. Going during the winter made it chilly at night, but bundling up for bed was required at every place we stayed for the month we were in Nepal so it wasn't an issue.
There are stores and restaurants within walking distance of the house (10 mins) or there are taxis available at the end of the street (2mins). The maid assured we had breakfast waiting each morning and offered us tea and coffee throughout the day.
Pema and her husband are wonderful examples of the friendly people of Nepal! She is warm and caring and that showed when we were able to meet her extended family that arrived to visit our last day there. She also uses the funds she collects from her guests to help supply and care for a local orphanage. I look forward to seeing my new Sherpa friends on my next visit to Nepal!
The best aspect of the stay are the cheerful, friendly, and hospitable hosts. The house itself is spacious and nicely furnished. We were a party of 6 and expected to be accommodated in 3 rooms, but the hosts provided us an extra room at no charge. Being local, the hosts, know Kathmandu and Nepal well and were able to introduce us to a car service for a comfortable trip to Pokhara. We did go in the middle of winter which makes for cold evenings/nights in Kathmandu. Our expectations were realistic in terms of expecting sleeping with lots of covers, and warm clothes, however the house does have nice, strong, hot showers which made us comfortable in the cold weather. Overall we enjoyed the stay and would choose to stay there again.
Good service very nice clean house
Big large room
If you go Nepal go this house
You will loved ..my family kids enjoy the
Service ...I never forget ... What a nice family ...
Warm and welcoming hospitality right from my pick up at the airport to my last day with the very special Nepali hosts residing in this large, comfortable and safe gated property. My room was large and airy with windows opening all around to let in cool night air. The very diligent housekeeper made sure I had flowers and a fresh bottle of water daily and even noticed that my multiple electronic devices may be better served by a power bar, which I found installed in my room only a couple of days after arriving. I was definitely well cared for.
My stay was for 16 days and by the time I left I felt like one of the family. Breakfast was made to order and an English language newspaper was waiting for my enjoyment at the table every day. Due to length of my stay I was graciously allowed use of the laundry area on the roof for washing and drying. Also the view from the roof is quite lovely. Fresh sheets and towels were always available by asking.
The location is near several good restaurants within walking distance (walk to Ring Road and turn left at the side walk) as well ATM's and other necessary amenities. In fact I would recommend a walk along both sides of the road very early in your stay as much for the Kathmandu experience as for the orientation value. You are not near the tourist area so daily life is more true to reality.
It is easy to flag a taxi if you want to go to Thamel or walk less than 10 minutes to a nearby taxi stand at the local mall on Ring Road.
I could go on and on about what a terrific place this is to stay in Kathmandu. It is phenomenal value! If I get a chance to return it will be my home away from home each time and every time! A big thank you to the hosts for offering their home to travellers like me! It was a brilliant experience!
