About this listing
A quiet, friendly, homey place in Entebbe, very convenient for travelers just arriving or departing from Uganda.
This is a beautifully convenient location within minutes from Entebbe International Airport.
This guest house is located on our small Permaculture farm in a quiet and secure residential neighborhood of Entebbe. The rooms are fairly basic but are clean and comfortable with soft sheets, nice cotton muslin mosquito nets and fans. The bathroom is clean and well functioning, shower has plenty of hot water and good water pressure.
There are two bedrooms available for rent, one with a single bed and one with a double bed. Guests will share the bathroom and living room which is quite cute but small. There is a small kitchen with a microwave oven, a refrigerator and everything you need to make tea and coffee. A hearty breakfast is included, served on the flower-filled terrace and our organic free-range eggs are the best you will find in Uganda!
Reliable wireless Internet is available.
Situated in a safe neighborhood for walking and from this location visits can be made to local markets and beaches, the Entebbe Botanic Gardens, and the downtown Entebbe 'beer belt'. Upon request we can arrange bird-watching boat cruises on a secluded bay of Lake Victoria.
This is a friendly place for anyone who is just arriving or departing. Safe and reliable airport transportation can be arranged upon request.
We are practicing a form of sustainable agriculture called Permaculture - which means we try to be as eco-friendly as possible, with a big beautiful vegetable garden, lots herbs and flowers and some really cute chickens and ducks.
Located in a residential neighborhood, very relaxed and friendly.
Even though I spent one night at Leslie's wonderful home it was precious. She was very helpful with things to see, how to get around, and how to maximize my time in Entebbe. Leslie and her husband also treated me to a healthy home cooked meal, which was just what the doctor ordered after all the unhealthy eating that can come with backpacking. I love their house, and the space they rent out is nothing short of being called a garden cottage: you have everything you need in there. Highly recommended...
We (couple with daughter) stayed here for 2 nights in July '15 and immediately felt at home. The house is located in a quiet and safe residential area at 10 minutes drive from the airport. The nice rooms and bathroom are in a small building next to the main house. We liked the presence of the dogs, cat, chickens and birds in the garden. Breakfast contained everything we could think of. Service was personalised and friendly. Leslie and Jane really took care of us. Great place to begin or end your stay in Uganda.
I had a nice stay at the Leslie's place. Leslie herself was not there, but Jane, the housekeeper, did everything to make me feel at home and made me some delicious breakfasts. The garden is a lovely place to sit back and relax and the 3 dogs are lively company to play with. A good place for anyone who is looking to spend a few nights in Entebbe in a quiet atmosphere !
The stay was wonderful. I only got to be there one night but the welcome was wonderful, the food was some of my best in Uganda and the place was as described. Thank you Leslie and Jane for the welcome!
We really were pleasantly surprised by the phenomenal hospitality bestowed upon us three upon our arrival at this piece of paradise.
Leslie, many thanks for helping make our first night in Uganda such a positive experience.
we are looking forward to our next visit and best of luck.
Leslie was a wonderful host! So welcoming and invited me to share an evening meal with her each week that I stayed; much appreciated! Really enjoyed the conversation and sharing of our varied experiences of working in Uganda. I also greatly valued hearing her experiences of working in other African countries and communities.
I have already written a review that would seem to have been lost! Leslie my host was wonderful! She was so welcoming and provided a hospitality unexpected in a B&B. It was a delight to also share some similar experiences of working in Uganda and I valued her experiences of also working in many other African countries. After the noise and chaos of Kampala, the accommodation was an absolute oasis of calm and tranquillity with the pleasure of playing with the three dogs and wandering through the gardens.
About the Host, Leslie
I have been living and working in Uganda since 1999, managing an HIV vaccine research project at Uganda's national health research institute in Entebbe. We practice permaculture at our home in Entebbe and love to share experiences (and herbs and eggs) with anyone who is interested. We have dogs, a cat and lots of chickens, ducks, guinea fowl, quails and turkeys- all of them co-existing peacefully with us and each other. We love living in Uganda and are happy to share information and insights on this most beautiful and aptly named 'Pearl of Africa'
