Our home in the heart of Lalibela is a very warm welcoming colourful, truly traditional one, full of friends & family. My English is not perfect but i try, my children Nigus(13) yeabsra(8) & Abi(3) are learning eagerly! We hope you come to visit us!

The space

The room is basic but clean with a bed big enough for two, fresh bedding provided. There is electricity so there is light and you can charge your equipment. We have no water inside but the is a running cold water tap outside.
I can provide hot water with notice, for washing and a large basin for traditional shower. We have 2 traditional toilets in the compound shared with our neighbours. A European shower and toilet can also be organised if necessary with the nearby hotel.

Guest access

Guests are free to come and go as they please. You will have your own lock and key for your bedroom, the whole compound is safe, my family and neighbours are all very friendly and happy to help.

Interaction with guests

I like to welcome my guests with a traditional coffee ceremony and talla (local beer that I make myself). My children love to learn and play with guests, it is good for them to develop their English. You are welcome to spend all day with my family, or if you feel like exploring and would like some guidance, my brother who speaks good English can show you around town. He is also a trekking guide for the more adventurous guests!

Other things to note

My English is not great, my brother has helped me to write this, who also does airbnb, but he manages this one for me so that I can host guests to earn money and for my children to have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world.
I warmly welcome you

Mengesha User Profile

Hi, my name is Mengesha, I am 26 years old. I was born in Lalibela and have been living here my whole life. Lalibela is becoming more and more attractive for tourism because of our wonderful churches and amazing landscape. I started meeting foreigners through a friend of mine and I enjoyed it. Now, I am happy to host people directly in my home and help them discover our culture and our town. The 5 things I can't live without are: football, reading books, dancing, walking in our beautiful land and share moments with my friends and family.
