I love meeting new people who are traveling the world doing interesting things, whether for work or for fun. I've already tried and tested a lot of what Kampala has to offer, and I would be delighted to help you understand how to get around, to recommend places to explore, and of course, the best restaurants to eat!
Noise pollution on certain nights: The apartment is located within earshot of Cayenne Restaurant and Lounge. Cayenne is at once a lovely place to eat or go out for a fun night of dancing, but it also is responsible for significant noise pollution in my apartment. The music can be heard loudly from the guest bedroom on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights until very late (hopefully when you're out enjoying the vibrant Kampala nightlife!). I'm personally used to it, and sleep fine with a fan on to bury the noise, but light sleepers will likely have an issue with this. I provide ear plugs if you need them, but please avoid staying with me on those days if you think this will aggravate you too much, or if earplugs are a major bother. I should say that sadly, this is a fairly common issue in much of Kampala.
- In general, respect is the main rule inside our apartment. Please treat others as you would like to be treated, and treat the space as if it was your own. That being said, here are a few rules worth highlighting explicitly. Please, please, please:
- Remove your shoes inside the apartment. The dust of Kampala streets should stay at the door!
- No smoking inside of the apartment or on the balconies. Please climb up one more floor and go enjoy a 360-degree view on the rooftop along with your cigarette :)
- Keep the shared bathroom clean and tidy, and only flush down toilet paper along with our business to avoid plumbing issues (sanitary pads, etc., go in the bin).
- Clean all of your dishes immediately after your meal. Also, do not leave any food out that will attract uninvited pests, either in your room or in the kitchen. Our apartment is pest-free and, with your help, we intend to keep it that way.
- No parties, no visitors, no overnight guests without previous approval. We like to know who we’re bumping into inside our own apartment :)
- Accidents happen… but if you break or damage something, kindly let me know and arrange for its replacement or repair.
- Do not engage in illegal activities anywhere on the property… Just stating the obvious.
- Return all keys. If you lose the keys, I will kindly ask that you pay for the replacement of the lock and padlock.
- Check-in is between 3pm and midnight, and check-out is by 11am. Arriving slightly earlier/later, or need that extra hour to sleep? Might be possible, but please check with me first.
- As a precautionary measure, to keep your belongings and our belongings safe, please keep the front door locked at all times - even when you’re inside the apartment.
- Last but not least - have fun! :)
Thank you for considering staying with me during your stay in Kampala. Regardless of what brings you to town, I'm confident that you would enjoy your stay in my home and in my area of Kampala.
I'm a Canadian expat, and I've been in Kampala since September 2015. I speak English and French fluently, I get by in Spanish, and I'm now trying hard to pick up Luganda :) I'm here to start a social enterprise with a goal of helping small businesses grow and realize their full potential. I love meeting new people who are traveling the world doing interesting things, whether for work or for fun. I've already tried and tested a lot of what Kampala has to offer, and I would be delighted to help you understand how to get around, to recommend places to explore, and of course, the best restaurants to eat!
Please contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you, and hopefully hosting you in my safe oasis.
