I kept extending my stay with Yvonne because I was so comfortable there and did not want to leave! Yvonne & her mum are wonderful & kind hosts. The property is green, calm, quiet and secure. You have your own mini-home in the back of the compound with its own bathroom & well-equipped kitchenette. It's enough space for a solo traveller or a couple. Yvonne & her mum gave enough space & privacy but also make you feel like part of the family. The neighborhood is residential but only a short walk to the local market and a short boda boda or Uber ride to many restaurants, grocery and bars in Muyenga and Kabalagala. I will definitely stay again soon & would recommend it to other travellers.

I stayed at Yvonne's place again because I loved it so much. It is still an amazing place: clean, quiet and the garden is beautiful!

This place is the best in Kampala, make sure you don't miss it! Yvonne and are mom are very hospitable and will help you with any questions you might have. Since you have your own bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, you habe enough privacy. At the same time, Yvonne and her mom are always close and love to have a chat. The house is centrally located and a short boda ride (or walk if you feel like it) away from many shops, bars and restaurants. It is also conveniently located to other neighbourhouds in Kampala. However ideally located, it is surprisingly also very quiet and a good place to rest after a stroll in chaotic Kampala. I really felt a home and will definitely stay here again when I return to Kampala!

We had a great stay at Yvonne's house, and we even extended by one day. The entire family (mom, son, dad, grand mother) were super friendly and welcoming. Our highlights were having tea while hearing about Yvonne's experience in Ouganda (and getting tips about what to do in our upcoming road trip) and eating the delicious home-made mango jam. The bedroom and facilities were nice and clean: great value for money! We highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Kampala.

Yvonne and her mother were very welcoming and kind. They had lots of advice about the area and living in Uganda from their long stay here. The area felt very safe and it was easy to walk to the shops and restaurants in Muyenga. Surprisingly quiet at night despite the bars in the area. Thanks for having me!

My husband and I had a really lovely stay with Yvonne and Mum. We stayed with them for five nights and their home was the perfect place for us to relax, catch up on some work, and explore Kampala. The accommodation is very comfortable and Yvonne and Mum were very helpful and enjoyable to talk with. I would highly recommend staying here and look forward to will certainly come back the next time we are in Kampala.

Originally from Germany, I live since 7 years with my small family in Kampala. I also lived in some Communities in Western Uganda. I love traveling and meeting people from all over the world. I love to visit many different African countries, but also Thailand and New Zealand are on my bucket list. Chocolate and food from different countries are another passion of me. Don't hesitate to ask anything about these topics. Through my experience in tourism, I can advise on places to see and things to do as well as daily life in Uganda and other East African Countries. We can arrange airport transfers, bus pick ups, city tours, local market tours, project and community visits and longer tours to the National Parks and other places within East Africa. Or we can just sit together in the evenings and discuss about culture or any other funny stories.
