I am a married business lady who lives in the city with my family, my newly constructed residential home in the rural area acts as a multitask, for family when we travel home once in a while and also airbnb to bring incoming to my to my large extended unfortunate and also to help get extra incoming to support the education of a few vulnerable children that I stay with in the city of Nairobi. I love meeting new people and sharing experiences too.
The house is newly contracted and the main source of energy is the solar system that provides light in the night and during day it can also be used.
There is a kitchen where you can cook for yourself and outside there is a huge tank that is full of water for consumption. There are clean toilets outside the main house for use as this is in the village and its also conducive for clients who wants to try the African rural way of life. The king size bed is amazing and from the bedroom window you will have a view of the lake and starts at night, you will enjoy sunset and sunrise, moon at night and starts.
The environment is secure, fence all round with one main gate IN front. There is plenty of space within the compound and 100 meters from the lake shore.
Come enjoy the rural life in Rusinga East Utajo village.
