Great check-in experience93% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Spacious house with relaxing garden very centrally located in Kigali, perfect for short and longer term stays! We are a Brit and American working in development social enterprises. Our housekeeper makes great meals, and we have two affectionate dogs! Walking distance to great restaurants (Chinese, Italian, Ethiopian), Lemigo hotel pool, the Convention Center, Simba grocery store... And anywhere else in town is a short taxi/moto away. This is a perfect balance between convenience and calm.

Colin's place was amazing, located close to a shop and close to a main road. The private room was perfect for the 2 week stay and the dogs were very cute :)

I was a bit surprised by Colin's place. I was looking for a private place and for me was not clear from the description that there are more rooms for rent within 1 house. As well as there was no information about shared bathroom. I was not able to use wardrobe as it is full of m…

Response from Colin:
Hi Zuzana - I'm sorry about the issues with the listing. I've updated it to make clear that it is a shared bathroom and that it's a rental for one private room of three available for rent in the house. As for the mold problem - I wasn't aware of it, so we're having that taken care of immediately. Glad the other parts of your stay were enjoyable and you got along well with the dogs! Take care.
