The space
The space is beautifully furnished and decorated with Rwandan and East African art. This is our family home and we want you to feel at home too! In addition to private bedrooms and bathrooms and the shared living spaces, we have 2 cribs and lots of toys and books available for families traveling with children.

Each bedroom has a light, breathable net over the bed to ensure you are mosquito-free in the night. All of our rooms have big beautiful windows that let in lots of Rwandan sunshine during the day. Want to sleep in? Not a problem! We've also made sure that each room has dark curtains that block out the sun until you're ready to rise.

On the ground floor of our home you'll find 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, the living room, kitchen and dining room. There's also a nice library space with books to browse or read and a desk space in case you need to catch up on e-mails or work. In case you're traveling and want to lighten your load-- feel free to leave a book behind for your fellow travelers!
