A message from Claire.
Please note that I have 8 rooms available but only two listings on
Airbnb. In other words, please ignore that calendar as it does not reflect whether or not we have available rooms. Please get in touch I will be let you know the true situation regarding vacancies. I look forward to hearing from you with any questions you may have about the house, Kampala or Uganda. Regards Claire
The annexe is in the same compound as the main house and is just a few meters away. It shares the same facilities, but the annexe has its own shower and toilet. There are 4 separate bedrooms that comprise the annexe.
A large, comfortable shared house in a quiet, safe Kampala suburb.
Although we have 8 rooms, we only have two listings which are Makindye House and Makindye House Annexe. So, is it best not to pay too much attention to the calendar and contact me directly. I will get back to you and let you know what rooms we have for the dates that you have requested.
We let 8 rooms in total (1 small @ $8 pppn, 2 small @ $10 pppn, 1 large (double bed) @ $12 pppn, 1 large $14 (double bed) pppn, 2 at $13 and 1 large (double bed) $15pppn). In addition there is the Airbnb booking fee.
Out of consideration for our clientele (students and volunteers etc.) we try to keep our charges low. This however does not mean that the standard of accommodation is low. Just look at the photos! Four excellent staff are employed to clean all rooms, wash your dishes, washing and ironing daily and 24 hour guard.
Most of our guests come from Europe and the US and include medical students, development workers, development studies students, doctors, volunteers, tourists etc.
Friendly informal atmosphere. Safe area. Walking distance from market, internet, shops, public transport and the Makindye Country Club (MCC), which has a swimming pool, tennis and squash courts, gym, restaurant. etc. A boda boda (small motorbike) ride from city centre.
Our house is a home away from home for our many young visitors. Our visitors often go out together or just hang out on the balcony chilling and chatting.
We have three dogs which are NOT allowed in the house.
Disponible para huéspedes
Other than the bedrooms and private bathrooms, all areas are communal spaces and available for you to enjoy especially the quiet area on the veranda.
Please note that the dogs must remain outside and must not be encouraged to come into the house or rooms.
Atención a los huéspedes
I am around during term time but return to UK during the school holidays. During these times Grace the housekeeper runs the house. I am in regular contact with Grace and with the guests whilst I am away. I enjoy interacting with guests when I am around but mostly they socialise with each other or watch videos together. Guests often go out as a group or even take trips away together. It is a VERY sociable house so if you are new to Kampala you have friends waiting for you at the house. Salad, avocados and other fruits in season are shared. Sunday the gardener grows salad and it comes into the house fresh every day. If you don't eat it, he will stop growing it!!

The Makindye Country Club is a short walk from the house. If you are a keen tennis player we have rackets and anyone is welcome to join the Sunday morning mix-in session 10.00 to 1.00. You can have a look at their website for costs etc. It is possible to get a short term membership but you can also pay a daily rate. There are times reserved for lap swimming. We have plenty of helmets so please take one if you are planning to take a boda.
No house guests unless arranged in advance.
Smoking only in the garden (not on the balcony or in the rooms)
Please don't leave your things in the communal areas.
If you have been out on the town and return in the early hours, please consider the other guests who will be asleep.
Lock front door on entering and leaving the house.
Last person to bed turns off lights!
