Sip your morning tea on the expansive veranda of this bright and beautiful furnished studio apartment!

The space

Located in Katabi (on Kisalu Road, five minutes from Entebbe Town), this fully equipped and furnished two level suite has all the amenities of home:
• Complete kitchen with gas cooktop/oven, large Saachi Gold refrigerator and microwave
• Full-sized LG 7.5 KG washing machine
• Full bathroom with shower and western toilet
• Linens and towels
• Solar water heater
• Flat screen TV with StarTimes subscription
• Ample parking

Custom built-in furniture makes maximum use of available space – there’s lots of storage everywhere! Tall ceilings and big windows open to a full-length veranda. Convenient fold-up 5x6 murphy bed makes the living room even more spacious. Another 3x6 mattress fits in the loft area above the washroom for additional sleeping space. Tastefully decorated with modern touches throughout, the rental includes a spacious separate attic area with another 5x6 mattress - plus even more living and built-in storage areas!

Enclosed in a walled and gated compound with a private secure entrance, this studio is brand new – as are all the included amenities.

Both water and electricity are included. All you need to bring is your suitcase and you’re home!

Guest access

The compound also features a full outdoor kitchen (grill, baking oven, pizza oven, cooktop) with group seating. It’s available upon request if you want to host a dinner party. And if cooking isn’t always on your schedule, you can prearrange reasonably priced meals with the resident chef – whether just for you or a group of friends gathered for a barbeque! (Chef Alimaa Thomas, also available for other catering needs)

Other things to note

N.B. In case you missed it, there is a washing machine in the house for your convenience, and an oven/cooktop so you can prepare your own meals.

Had plans to stay in Entebbe for  couple of days and saw this interesting looking upstairs apartment - so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. It was laid out well, tastefully decorated and comfortable, I've never seen a Murphy bed outside of the US, but it was a pleasant surprise and added a lot to the usable space and atmosphere of Vulima Residence. The location was just as advertised, close to any activity I wanted to explore, but very quiet at night, allowing for uninterrupted sleep.  Monique was gracious, even if my arrival was delayed a bit. She came and checked me in, gave me the run of the compound and offered to show me where I could get any amenities I might have forgotten. Before I decided to try hailing a bodaboda on my own, she arranged for one of her contacts to take me around and even advised how much I should be paying for those services. I'm glad she did, probably saved me a good bit of cash. She gave me recommendations on a few local stores and restaurants, as well as directions. The unit was clean, the sheets were fresh and I must have been the first person to ever sleep on that nice mattress. From what I'd seen available online in the area, it is not very common to see a western style washroom equipped with a water heater, but Vulima Residence has both. The kitchen area was small, but very well-appointed, though I didn't do much other than make some tea. I wanted to get a taste of the local cuisine, which I did by exploring (with Monique's assistance). Though I did not take full advantage of his services, the chef on site was preparing a meal for an outside catering affair, which smelled delicious. I did have a taste, it turned out I was right.  If it had been more than just me, I think I would have had him cook up a meal or two.  All in all, a great experience. Five stars! Thanks, Monique - I'll see you again soon!
