The house is a bit far away from town center where the bus stop is. However, lake view around the house is exceptional and the house is very clean and well-maintained. Tom was helpful to give me advice of running routes and local culture. I also love their bike tour which is a bit intense considering hilly environment and beautiful service. All in all, I had a great time at Tom's house and all his people are very nice and helpful.
The Place: This house has an excellent location right between Paradis Malahide and Inzu Lodge. It is on the water and you can hear the waves crash against the rocks at night. The room doesn't have much of a view, but there is nice seating in the front to chill by the lake. We stayed in the large double room which can sleep 3 as it has an additional twin bed in it. The place was clean with a very nice staff. The place seems pretty secure, our room didn't have a key the first few nights and everything was safe and sound. The price is a little bit steep without breakfast or a place to be able to purchase food, but it's a good option if other spots are booked.
The Host: Tom also runs a really interesting bicycle company which does tours all over Rwanda. He is a really great guy and I'm glad we got to meet him. He has a house manager who handles the reservations and is also very friendly. We booked the reservation pretty last minute and take equal blame in some of the check-in confusion. I'd say, try to book early and make sure to get the number of the manager to avoid check-in issues.
Tips: Expect to pay 6,000 for a cab from town to here, but it's always worth it. Bring water from town as there isn't really anywhere close to grab it (although the guys at the house can go and get it for you if you ask really nicely).
This place was fantastic! My first experience with airbnb and it was terrific. Absolutely gorgeous view and a great quiet location. The room was clean and the shower hot. Couldn't have asked for anything better!
