A message from Claire. Please note that I have 8 rooms available but only two listings on Airbnb. Our listings are Makindye House and Makindye House Annexe which are both on the same compound. In other words, please ignore that calendar as it does not reflect whether or not we have available rooms. Please get in touch and I will be let you know the situation regarding vacancies. I look forward to hearing from you with any questions you may have about the house, Kampala or Uganda.

Lo spazio
A large comfortable shared house in a quiet, safe Kampala suburb.
Please don't pay too much attention to the calendar because we let 8 rooms and it was too complicated to have 8 separate listings. So please get in touch and I will let you know if and what rooms we have available for the dates that you are requesting. We currently have just the two listings, Makindye House and Makindye House Annexe. We let 4 rooms in the main house and 4 rooms in the annexe (1 small @ $8 pppn, 2 small @ $10 pppn, 1 large @ $12 pppn, 1 large $13 pppn, and 1 large $15pppn). There is also the Airbnb 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. 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 fresh salad which comes in every day from the garden and you are welcome to help yourself. Also any fruit from the garden is for sharing with the guests.

Friendly informal atmosphere. Safe area. Walking distance from market, internet, shops, public transport and the Makindye Country Club which has a swimming pool, tennis and squash courts, a gym and a restaurant. If you are a tennis player, please pack your trainers. We have spare rackets you can borrow. A boda boda (small motorbike) ride from the city centre. We have enough helmets for everyone so please don’t forget to wear one. Also, be sure to ask about the safe drivers as they vary a lot and not all are safe!

We have three dogs which are NOT allowed in the house.

Accesso per gli ospiti
Other than the bedrooms and private bathrooms, all areas are communal spaces and available for you to enjoy, especially the lovely quiet area on the veranda. We also have a DVD player and hundreds of films and TV series to choose from.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
Neighbourhood overview
If you walk just a few meters up the hill you will get wonderful views of the city below. If you are a runner then you can enjoy a morning or evening run around the hill. Makindye is a quiet neighbourhood with a real sense of community. Neighbours will regularly stop and offer you a lift up the hill. They will guess that you are going to Claire's house. Coffee at Last which is opposite the Makindye County Club has free WiFi, great brownies and take away meals. Please mention that Claire sent you! The Makindye Country Club or MCC has a pool, squash and tennis courts, gym and a restaurant. You can get a short term membership or pay a daily fee. If you are eating or drinking there then you do not need to pay, but you will need to tell them at the desk or you will be charged. Bromelia is a hotel about 100m from the house. You can eat there and you can pay to use the pool. A short walk from the house you will find shops selling basic foods and lovely fresh fruit and vegetables. Look out for Jessica who has a small kiosk with a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables.
One of the nicest things about the house is that all the young people take care of each other and often cook together or go out for a meal or to a bar at the weekend. So, if you are new to Kampala, your new friends are waiting for you at the Makindye House.

Kampala, Regione centrale, Uganda

Makindye is one of the most pleasant areas of Kampala. It is safe, quiet, people are friendly and there are plenty of places to eat within a short boda ride from the house. If you walk a few meters up the hill you will get spectacular views of Kampala.

I am a retired primary school teacher and taught at the International School of Uganda for 28 years. I am now enjoying traveling skiing hiking and biking. My daughter Olivia recently started a business in Kampala and lives at the house. I love Uganda and enjoy meeting the guests who come and stay at the house.

Durante il tuo soggiorno
Please note that the although very friendly, dogs must remain outside and should not be encouraged to come into the house or rooms.
The house is run by myself and my daughter, as well our lovely housekeeper Grace. Grace continues to run the house if either of us are away. 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. The gardener grows salad and it comes into the house fresh every day.
