You are most welcome to stay in Jinja, Uganda's finest container house. This repurposed container started its journey in America & was filled with medical supplies & shoes for Sole Hope. It has been turned into a light, creative, relaxing environment with an amazing shower & comfortable beds.
When you stay at @thecontainerhaus you will find the outdoor dining flows into a breezy & light living room & kitchen area. Inside the container is one bedroom with a single (twin) bed & a toddler/baby bed. If you step through the back door you will see the rest of the living space-a large master bedroom & beautiful garden bathroom. Feel free to drink your morning coffee or tea in the rocking chairs on the porch while overlooking the beautiful village countryside & hills.
The Container Haus is slightly off the beaten path and is located only 5 minutes from the beautiful Nile Resort where you can swim, dine & go to the gym. We are also 10 minutes from kayaking, paddle boarding & several more fabulous places to eat! Take a 10 minute drive into town & you will be on Jinja's main street. The neighborhood is mainly rolling hills with passion fruit, corn, sugarcane & a few homes.
  • We really enjoyed our stay. It’s such a lovely little getaway and the location is perfect. The interior was super stylish. I love all the little touches they added around. We’ll definitely be back.

  • I loved staying at the container haus!!! It was one of the most amazing places I have ever stayed. The bed was extremely comfortable and the fans were amazing at night! I loved siting on the porch and reading! Also Joyce on the compound was so welcoming and sweet!! Be sure to check out her jewelry!

    Jennie2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • If you love simple and cozy, you will absolutely fall in love with this tiny and beautiful house! It has everything you need and is the perfect place to retreat alone or with your loved ones :) I strongly recommend it!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days at this cute little cottage. Such an incredibly beautifully and thoughtfully designed space and garden!! Everything was as described, very clean and communication was great. We felt very safe and welcomed by the family living in the house next to us. When we go back to Jinja we will look forward to staying here!!

    Candis2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Fun and different experience. We can recommend it!

    Ditte2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • The Container Haus was perfect for a weekend getaway from Kampala and we really enjoyed all the small finishes and touches around the house. The bed is almost too comfortable and sitting on the balcony with a book was very pleasant. As advertised in the description, be aware that you're not completely alone on the compound, but the family and askari didn't really bother us.

    Adi2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing time at container haus. Everything has been done so you experience a restful and relaxing time. Highly recommended.

    Ronnie2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • If you look for a nice spot in Jinja, this is the place to go. A very nice and quiet location with a creative touch (really succesfull transformation of two containers into a comfy home) and great care. The veranda is fantastic, the bed really comfortable and you have everything you need. Local driving-expert ‘long John’ will take you everywhere you want and is a master on the sometimes flooded roads. Go there!

We didn't want to leave! 10/10 - Do recommend

    Hayley2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • I had such a wonderful experience and time. Ceyda herself is super... super! Great host! Very communicative, flexible, easy-going, helpful and available. The space was wonderful, clean, relaxing, peaceful. Being set right in the trees overlooking the Nile and the exceptional wildlife was an adventure right from the balcony. :) Definitely recommend and will visit again for sure.

    Katie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • nice place lovely people and a good view

    Oliver2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Ceyda’s place is as beautiful as the pictures. We had such a relaxing couple of days surrounded by monkeys and all kinds of birds with a fantastic view of the Nile. The restaurant next door has great food at a reasonable price and there are also local chapati places just a short walk to the village. Ceyda and her husband were gracious hosts and made sure we were comfortable throughout our stay. It was really nice to chat with them. We would recommend their place to everyone.

    Shana2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • I can only recommend this accommodation. The room was clean and the terrace with a view of the Nile and the monkeys was definitely our highlight. The hosts were always available and there for us for any questions. It was very calm and perfect for relaxing.

    Judith2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • It’s an incredible place to stay for one night or more. Having a breakfast with the sun rays through the trees, watching the monkeys running into the branches was awesome!

    Alexis2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Ceyda is an amazing host and quick to respond to questions and of great help with booking holiday activities..all you have to do is ask and she will be happy to book your activity of choice for you and at best rates. The space is great for adventure types. It has great view of the Nile. There is a restaurant right next door with amazing staff and great food. Definitely recommend.

    Michelle2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is really nice for Jinja. It is very well located, close to main street (where you can find most places to eat / buy souvenirs /buy groceries). The place is quiet and you can easily make it your home for a couple days. I stayed for 3 weeks and Taylor was really there for me to make it as nice as possible ! You will find everything you may need in the kitchen. Also, the sofa is so comfy to relax at the end of the day. Thank you Taylor for your kindness !

    Oskar2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a safe and comfortable alternative to the average guesthouse in Jinja. It was also quiet, which is not always easy to find so close to town. We also loved the additional space more than your average stay in a single room and the option to cook your own meals.

    Michael-Scarlett2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Jinja Bungalow is a great spot to stay in Jinja if you’re looking for a quiet and private space! Easily walkable to many of the day hangout spots in town. Loved the little sitting room and the shower has hot water - a big plus! Would stay here again, definitely.

    Mary Kate2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Though out of town, Taylor was super quick at communicating and this was very helpful! Her place is in a dream location!! Super green & perfect for exploring Jinja town and neighboring areas. Makes for a beautiful getaway! I highly recommend taking walks around + bike rides when you visit. I will definitely wanna be back. There are such beautiful touches in the apartment & the environment in the backyard is peaceful and beautifully green. Love the life the animals add too.

    The space is a large vacation home with a great architectural design. Lots of lighting and large private rooms. It is 5 minute ride from Jinja town which has a lot to offer.
    The property has many rooms; private and shared. It can comfortably accomodate up to 10 people. It has a large living room, kitchen, several bathrooms and a large compound. It is in a residential area and therefore quiet.
    Masese is one of the fastest growing residential neighbourhoods of Jinja town. It is a 7 minute drive from the town centre and yet it's very quiet and cozy. The property is enclosed and so it offers a high level of privacy. Jinja is one of the most visited tourist districts of Uganda with loads of adventure from white Nile rafting to bungee jumping or just interacting with the locals.
  • Great place. Very serene

    Rwatangabo2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, what a house! This place is spacious, and impressive! There is a ton of value here, especially for a larger group. It's a little ways out of town, and the streets are not laid out very well (use google maps), but the house itself is clean, comfortable, and an incredible value for staying in Jinja. Seems like an ideal place to bring a short term teem to stay several days. Olive is also incredibly quick to respond, and her staff at the house were helpful. If you don't need a touristy experience, and want to get value for your money, I would highly recommend the Nest in Jinja!

    Micah2019-09-27T00:00:00Z

  • Barbara is the most amazing host that we had! She helped us more than it was expected from her. Since we had some issues with our health, Barbara was very caring and took us to the hospital, also she made sure that we are not lacking anything. About the apartment - the house is cozy and modern with lovely kitchen outside. Nice sight and breeze coming from the river Nile will make you want to stay there forever. The place and neighborhood is serene and tranquil including Harry and his crew (dogs) inviting you to play. The apartment is not far from centre just on another side of the bridge.

    Enjoy our Canadian-owned cozy cottage in the heart of Jinja town, just steps from Main Street where you’ll find many supermarkets, banks and restaurants. The property is a safe & quiet garden oasis!Hang out in a hammock underneath the bamboo trees or play a game of bocce ball. The cottage itself is bright, clean and beautifully furnished; equipped with every comfort - hot water shower, double-sized bed & a fully stocked kitchen. The property is gated and double guarded with secure parking.
    Whether you are staying for a few days or a few months, I want your stay to feel like home. The bedroom has a luxuriously comfortable double-sized bed and a large closet for keeping your belongings. The room is big and bright, equipped with a imported linens & modern decor. The bathroom is kept immaculately clean and features a hot-water shower. The kitchen has a fridge, mini oven, a double stove top, a kettle, cookware, dishes and utensils. The living room is upbeat and simple, containing a couch, two individual seats and a table. Guests are free to use the compound as they please. We have bocce ball, soccer balls and a hammock set up beneath the bamboo trees. We have two friendly dogs and some friendly cats that hang around the property. They are great with adults & children alike. We have two night guards on duty as well as a day guard who will open the gate for you when you are coming and going. Parking is on property and is very secure. We also have a lady who comes to wash clothes and clean, so if you'd like her help, she can help you for a small fee.
    The neighborhood is very quiet. We are located just 350 meters from the famous "Deli" of Jinja, as well as various banks, restaurants and supermarkets. Everything you need is within walking distance. The property borders a bank, and is across the road from the high court of Jinja and various governmental buildings - so it is a very safe neighborhood. Also - side note - the president of Uganda has a house in the neighborhood (meaning power rarely ever goes off, and if it does, it doesn't stay off for long!)
  • Leslie's cottage is a nice find very close to the main part of Jinja but far enough away to not be disturbed by traffic or late night parties. There is a small kitchen that had enough amenities to make most of my meals, a nice warm shower, and more than enough space for an individual or couple staying for an extended period. Leslie's yard is fantastic, with multiple hammocks to relax on. There are also currently 2 dogs who really enjoy getting back scruffs. There is a guard present 24 hours a day to let you into and out of the property, and at no point did I feel unsafe. The house is approximately 2 blocks from the main street in Jinja, allowing for easy walking to restaurants, the grocery, etc. If you are uncomfortable walking at night there are also plenty of motorcycle taxis to bring you back after dark. Leslie was extremely quick to respond to questions and fix any issues.

    Sesh2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful, beautiful, practical space to live while in Jinja. A perfect place to work, live or enjoy for a short overnight. Hospitality was warm & I would love to be there again!

    Jo2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Leslie's cottage is wonderful. It is well situated at the end of the main street in Jinja in close proximity to the best restaurants and nightlife. The property guards are very friendly and attentive at all hours. The plot is well maintained and very green. The cottage itself was recently renovated and is well-lit, very comfortable, and functional. The shower is hot and bedroom spacious. Leslie and her partner met me for check-in and are very accommodating and responsive. They even brought me out a fan for the bedroom without me asking because they thought I might like it. Leslie has two wonderful cats and two cute dogs - one currently a golden retriever puppy, all very friendly. The pup even meets me at the gate and walks me to my cottage door each evening in exchange for a few scratches. There is also very affordable laundry service offered with quick turnaround. 100% recommend a stay here if passing through Jinja! Thanks Leslie!

  • What a great house with a stunning view over the lake. A quiet and relaxed oasis, the perfect getaway, but still close to the town! The staff did everything to make us feel welcome and communication with Lovelyn was always smooth and quick. I can highly recommend The Shine House to everyone who would like to visit Jinja. It won't be the last time that we were here.

    Aylin2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptional spot and peaceful place. I live and work in Uganda, the majority of time I have used Air B n B here, I have been disappointed, not as advertised. This place was definitely wonderful and exception to those other experiences. Very close to Jinja, looking on map it may look further, but when there you feel like you are in the wild. Hope to return again and am remiss waited this long!

    Charles2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lovelyn and her team have done a great job creating a haven outside of Jinja. The home is a great place for rest and play. Jinja offers great opportunities for adventure in East Africa. We highly recommend this home and hope to be back soon!

  • Lovelyn’s place is gorgeous. The inside is modern and comfortable. The view over the Nile is amazing. Above all of the views, the hospitality provided was so enjoyable. The staff were kind and thoughtful. I would recommend Lovelyn’s place for a getaway for a couple or a large group - the house is ready for both occasions.

You need to walk through one of the bedrooms to get to one of the bedrooms and there is no wifi, but there is a MTN and africell shop right around the corner, and data is very inexpensive. We were able to walk to many supermarkets and shops.

  • Anne's place is located near the river Nile. It is about 10mins drive from jinja town. I loved the way Anne and her husband personally met us and took us to the house despite that we arrived quite late at night because of the traffic. That check-in process really made us feel at home. The house shares the compound with two other neighbors and they were friendly people. The only difficulty we experienced was dogs and chickens making noise at night and early morning, but Anne acted promptly on this concern so we slept well on the second night. Anne is very hospitable, the house has thoughtful touches like clean kitchen towels, many tissue rolls and insect spray. Anne is also quick to respond to your questions about sightseeing in Jinja. The MiFi she provided us worked perfectly . We will definitely be back when in Jinja. Thank you Anne!

  • This place is amazing! The front rooms are more updated than the back rooms, but they all are nice and have hot water. The staff are all amazing. Good location, within easy walking distance of touristy stuff in Jinja. Honestly Sam deserves the best possible review. He was awesome. We traveled as a group of 8 and he was so accommodating and wonderful. All of the staff and guards are great! We had laundry done and food served for reasonable prices.

  • Did as the other reviews suggested and upgraded to the studio which I highly recommend. Host is responsive and the 2 housegirls are really welcoming and helpful. The screen for the balcony door is torn and needs to be replaced since there isn’t a mosquito net. Other than that, it was a great stay!

  • This place is a great value for money! Like what other guests have commentes, they have two listing. The Jisa studio is the more expensive one but totally worth that extra for the very nice patio seating space. The cheaper one is listed as the jinja service apartment I believe, and is the smaller rooms behind. The only small problem for me was that the mosquito net was broken. But since i have kept all doors and windows closed I slept through the night with no bites at all. Really nice and spacious room, enough green space on the compound to give me the break I need from Kampala. Breakfast is simple but good. Highly recommend this place for budget traveller.

  • This place is really nice to Explore Jinja and its surrounding activities Camps from. After a very warm welcome, we stayed in a selfsustained appartments with bathroom, bedroom, and small livingroom. There is a warm shower. The garden looks amazing.

    Stephen2018-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Eddie and his family are such great hosts with outstanding hospitality. They live in a large compound with a big house. I was impressed that they have their own wing, separate from the guest's wing which provides privacy. Eddie is very quick to respond via message and also provides local tips on places to visit with their price range. On our last day, he even offered to take us to see the Itanda falls which is a memorable experience for me. I would recommend staying at his place to everyone who would like to stay in Jinja. You will definitely not regret it. Thank you, Eddie and Family.

    Stephanie2018-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great stay with Edward and Julie. The room is perfect and especially for this price. The house is comfortable and Edward and Julie are nice, friendly, caring and helpfull. The room is comfortable with a really nice bed, table, chair, wardrobe, fan and own bathroom. Really everything you need is there. Soon the shower probably even has hot water! The house is in a quite village, giving you a good night sleep and it's between Jinja and Bujagali. Both you can reach easily with a bodaboda. If you are a light sleeper, bring your earplugs for a long sleep, as they start using the kitchen, which is next to the room, from 5am. Together with other guests (they just finished a nice room/house on the compound with own bathroom, livingroom, bedroom) I did a tour to Itanda Falls and a mountain to enjoy the view of Jinja, where Edward drove us. It was really nice! I loved my 2 weeks stay here and recommend other people to stay here. After a day in the village where i had to be during the day, it was so nice returning to their house and enjoy the nice weather and sunset on the patio.

    Marielle2018-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • Edward and Julie are outstanding hosts. Their big house is beautiful and very clean and they have a huge garden as well where they grow their own vegetables. The bedroom where we stayed was perfect: it has a double bed with a mosquito net, a fan, and a neat bathroom with everything you need like towels, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush and there were even bottles of water and a cozy bedlight. In the morning we got a very eleborate delicious breakfast. Edward and Julie were so friendly, Edward even gave us a tour in his garden and house and showed all the vegetables, his solar light and rain water system. They just started on AirBnB, so they don't have a lot of reviews, but just go for it because it's really good value!

    Nina2018-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place will probably become very soon one of the best places in Jinja where to stay. Eddie and her husband Edward are extremely kind. They welcomed me as I was a member of their family. I had my own bathroom and toilets, and the breakfast in the morning was almost similar to the one in a three-star hotel. Moreover, I was even invited to have dinner. The place is well secured there are always people in the house to keep an eye on your belongings. It's not far from town and I even walked there once. I enjoyed that place so much that I extended my stay. I definitely recommend it and if I ever go back to Jinja, I intend to stay there again.

  • Juma, Kirsten and Hassan are exceptional hosts. They are relaxed, friendly and keen to help. Our experience is that they go above and beyond to support their guests in anyway possible. The house is beautiful and immaculate and the room itself is huge and very well-furnished. The plot is only a short walk Main Street (10 mins) - restaurants and shops etc. What more could you want? If you go to Jinja, I would strongly recommend a stay at Juma's.
