    Through Nesterly, I lived with Sarah while attending Harvard. She provided the type of repository of knowledge that you can’t just Google-showing me how to garden, to gut a fish, to pepper French romanticism into life.

    Having a great experience as a Nesterly host! My houseguests have been a very good match for me and my home.

    Nesterly helped me find a place in a very frustrating reality of infinite search time in facebook groups and prices that many times do not correlate to the value of what you get.

  • Katelyn Folberth

    My host and I came up with an agreement that allows me to have lower rent in exchange for help around her home. It’s a great exchange and I would do it again in a heart beat. Throughout the entire process, Nesterly’s staff has been supportive and helpful.
