About this listing
Come and stay in our peaceful twin/triple room with ensuite bathroom. Wonderful lake views from our peaceful garden and roof terrace. 10 minutes from Entebbe airport, we can arrange an airport transfer for you as well as a filling tasty breakfast.
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 your choice.
The bedrooms have been remodelled to include a self contained ensuite bathroom. Relax in our bright airy lounge with a cup of tea or a good book or sit in Alisons beautiful garden which will have provided part of your breakfast!
We have a lovely peaceful garden that attracts a wide variety of birds to feed off the flowers and many fruit trees. Our roof top sun terrace is the perfect place to sit and watch the sunset over Lake Victoria and Western Uganda.
Interaction with Guests
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 or wherever you fancy the choice is yours.
Alison and I welcome you to join us on the terrace around 6pm to enjoy a sundowner have a good chat and watch the sunset. We think it's perfect and never tire of enjoying it.
Oh and if your a dog lover our two dogs Tippy a 7 year old Ugandan rescue dog and Maisie our Alaskan Husky!!! Love nothing better than going for a walk so feel free to offer to take them. If your not a doggy person then don't worry as they are banned from the guest areas and both know where the boundaries are. They are house pets and not guard dogs so are very lovable and will be only too happy to let you pet them.
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. Wander around in safety and interact with the wonderfully friendly local Ugandans who always have a smile for you.
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. Beware that Bodas are risky but quick and cheap.
Other Things to Note
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! However we have thermionic shower valves fitted so it's only at the sink you might find the water very very hot
No smoking inside, although the garden area is a nice place to relax and have a drink and a smoke if you want to.
We do expect our guests to be well behaved with no loud music or drunken behaviour.
We are a semi-retired couple who are restructuring and enjoying living in Uganda after teaching in England for over thirty years. Dave is an old Uganda hand having been brought up out here. Alison enjoys the change of pace of life and wide variety of fresh produce in the local markets, as well as volunteering at a pre-school orphanage directing teacher development and learning materials
