What a great, private space on top of Capri point! Very cozy kitchen and sitting room. We loved the separate entrance so we could get in and out at any time without disturbing Shannon's family. If you dont come by car, Shannon's staff can organise a cab for you (walking to town center is possible, but a bit of a stretch). Thanks again for having us. Would always recommend to stay with small family/kids as we did.

I could not have been more pleased with my stay at Shannon and Amani's home. I stayed for just around 2 months, and absolutely did not want to leave! I selected this location for the view and it did not disappoint, but having such kind and generous hosts was an unexpected bonus. Shannon was incredibly helpful with everything from taxi drivers to picking up supplies for me when I was home sick -- she truly went above and beyond! Mama Hussein came twice a week to clean my apartment and do laundry, and I was very pleased with her help as well. I always felt safe and comfortable in the house and have no complaints whatsoever. I truly felt at home during my stay and hope to be back someday soon!

Absolutely gorgeous spot with views to die for, we extended our stay. It's in a very swish area of town and there are a couple of places to eat and drink within 10 minutes' walk and plenty more within a 20 minute stroll. Shannon is lovely, just next door if needed, but totally unintrusive if you just want some quiet time. Also provides a generous set of basics, so there's plenty to tide you over until you get to a shop and more than enough for breakfast. The balcony, comfy living room, eat-in kitchen are all very lovely spaces as well. We didn't really want to leave. Would be a great spot for a writer to spend some time.

Shannon's an extremely communicative host. If staying in Mwanza city, this is a nice location from where to discover the lake and surrounding areas. The house itself is quiet, secluded and away from the bustle of the town, while within walking distance to it. Best for folk that are used to a bit of walking and enjoy it. Internet is an issue, but it's an issue everywhere in Mwanza. Shannon does provide a mobile hotspot for those that may want to step into town with connectivity.

We had a wonderful stay at Shannon's place! The view was beautiful and shannon was willing to help us with anything we might need. Mama Hussein very kindly did laundry for us as well. We stayed for a week and overall it was a great escape from the busy city center. The apartment is so cute and it's still fairly easy to get into town to go grocery shopping, etc. Would 100% recommend!

This Airbnb met and exceeded my expectations. It is in a great location at Capri Point, and the apartment is nice. There are Great Lake Victoria views from the bedroom, sitting room, and kitchen/dining room. The kitchen was especially useful. Shannon was not there, but Job met us and was fantastic We needed a little help with a couple things, and he immediately jumped into action and hit it done. Plus, he was very friendly. Shannon was also very friendly through electronic communications. Two thumbs up!!

We had a wonderful time staying at Shannon's place. Although she wasn't even in the country at that time, she was always reachable and arranged airport pick up as well as some one who welcomed us incredibly nice. The apartment has a wonderful view over the lake and is located in a save area in walking distance from the city center. An overall positive experience
