2 double rooms and a twin room all with ensuite bathrooms in Entebbe with Lake views and peaceful garden, 10 minutes from Entebbe airport. We offer a pickup and drop off included in room rate as well as a filling tasty breakfast. Alison & Dave always have a welcome for you.
Our house was originally built by a local man and in the local fashion, we have remodelled it with a 2nd storey to fully enjoy the views of Lake Victoria and watch the sun set while being able to sit and relax with a nice cold drink of our choice. The original sleeping spaces have been remodelled to include a shower room and flushing toilets etc. The house originally had a 'long drop' in the garden which we have since got rid of.
lovely peaceful garden that attracts a wide variety of birds. Our raised sun terrace to watch the sunset over Lake Victoria and Western Uganda
We are inviting you to stay at our house and be our guests we come and go as necessary and enjoy meeting a wide variety of visitors. You can sit and chat or simply read a book in our garden the choice is yours.
We live in a semi rural environment with cows and goats grazing on the grass road sides, local ladies run little fruit and vegetable stalls. A 15 minute stroll brings you to the ferry landing point for the Ssese Islands and a soporific or lively depending on the time of day and day of the week local market.
If we are going out then jump in with us or we can get you a Boda Boda (motorbike taxi) or a 5 minute walk down to the main road gets you access to the local taxi minibuses which are as thick as fleas on a dog! transport is very cheap.
All bathrooms have different forms of hot water systems and if your using our solar system then beware it is hot enough to make tea and coffee!
Such a wonderful experience to be welcomed so warmly by Dave and Alison when arriving in Entebbe, we felt like we were visiting family. Comfortable bed, luxurious towels, great breakfast, friendly atmosphere. We learnt a lot about Entebbe in our short stay. This far exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much.

Our first couple of days in Entebbe were amazing and just what we needed to start our holiday. David & Alison were great hosts, extremely flexible and provided detailed information about the area and where to go. The house is beautiful a good view from the balcony over Lake Victoria and bird life to be seen in their garden. Our bed was really comfortable and the showers are hot (a treat in Uganda as we found out). They have great knowledge of Entebbe and give you advice about things to do, places to go and restaurants.
The property is not too far from the airport and if you are a light sleeper like me you might need earplugs as there is the occasional plane taking off or landing, but you really won't know the airport is there otherwise.
Breakfast was delicious and catered for all tastes and sized bellies, with porridge, fruit, and my wife's favourite banana pancakes.
Their local taxi driver (Charles) charges very reasonable prices and stepped in at the last minute to take us to Masaka. Unlike other Taxi's he knows where David & Alison live and so, if you can, book him in advance through David & Alison.
Entebbe itself is a really great place walk around with markets, craft areas and beautiful beaches. The people are very friendly and we felt very safe walking around and asking for directions. Unlike other areas you don't get hassled for money. There are great restaurants (Faze 3) which have an extensive menu and you will not bust your budget on a very good 3 course meal.
We would definitely recommend.
