BUNK BED in a SHARED ROOM in a cottage facing Lake Victoria. My place is 20mins walk away from Mbita town centre, 5mins if you take a piki-piki (motorbike taxi) for only 50KES. You can see the Lake Victoria from my place and it is 25mins walk away.

The space
You will get ONE bunk space in a SHARED ROOM which:
+ fits 4 guests
+ properly ventilated with lots of sun.
+ there are no fans but with the windows it is quite coolling.

My place is :
+ 25mins walk away from Lake Victoria.
(which you can see from my property)
+ 20mins walk away frok the Mbita town centre.
(where you can get all your neccessities from)
+ 30mins walk away from Ligongo Hills.
(where you can view the entire Rusinga Island from the top of the hill).
*These places are all accessible by walking or by piki-piki (motorbike taxi).

+ Besides that, Mfangano Island is just a 1-hour ferry ride away.
(where you can see ancient rockarts and a cave humans lived in 4000 years ago).
+ The Ruma National Park is only roughly 30km away.
(where you can see wild giraffes, zebras, rhinos, antelopes, buffalos and such)

I can also hook you up with the fishermen to take you out fishing for a day. I have a corn field in my property, for those who would love to have an insight into an authentic African culture can well experience it here. I have a hammock too where you can spend a lazy afternoon. However, I only have an outdoor bathroom with 2 Turkish toilets and a shower compartment.

Guest access
I have a common living room with enough couch space for guests to relax and interact with each other. Guests are also welcomed to use my kitchen to prepare their own food, if they would love to get their ingredients from the Mbita market, anyway, for those who prefer to eat-out, there are some restaurants in Mbita. In a nut shell, I welcome the guests to feel free as it is their home.

Location

Homa Bay, Kenya

I have very few neighbours, I have only a family of 10 living nearby, so its generally very quiet, only some cattles would pass by occasionally. The sunrise and sunset are amazing too which can be seen from my place.

Karibu, I am Sam! I live in Rusinga Island, Mbita, Homa bay. I am a primary school teacher and I love interacting with people from all over the world, so you are most welcomed to come stay with me!
During your stay
I am a school teacher so I am most likely to be away from home from 730am to 5pm on weekdays, but guests will always be able to reach me with a phone call if they need any assistance. I would also love to give them local tips and advices to the attractions nearby or take them to Lake Victoria, Lingogo Hills, Ruma National Park during weekends.
