>>The Solar House
We are an adventurous family of four, renting out our eco-friendly house in Isamilo.
Best thing first: It is "green" - meaning it mainly runs on solar-energy! Sam is working for a German Solar company and has equipped the house with one of their products. Super reliable and powerful.
The house has three bedrooms:
Master bedroom: Spacious with a queen-sized bed, a children's bed/cot, desk, shelf and a closet. It also has access to a private bathroom. Perfect for a little more privacy.
Single room: Cozy room with king-sized bed and closet. For single traveller or a couple.
Twin room: Simple room with two single beds. Perfect for sharing with a friend.
There are two bathrooms (one of them is only accessible from the master bedroom). They are clean, tiled and have western style toilets as well as “rain dance” showers with hot water. Since the regional government has their residences and offices in Isamilo water supply is quite stable and the water pressure high.
Self-contained kitchen equipped with everything you need to cook delicious meals with locally produced veggies from the market or fish from Lake Victoria :)
Our Scandinavian/Tanzanian (Ingjerd is Norwegian) fusion style living room has a sitting group and a dining table.
The house has a terrace with a sitting area where you can chill, have a chat and a drink after a long day. It's also the best place to answer emails and do skype calls. The garden is awesome and the perfect location for a barbecue.
The Isamilo area is cool and safe. It is calm despite the busy city centre being just a 10 minutes walk away. We often host guests for accommodation from NIMR, SimuSolar, MITU or the Mwanza Isamillo International School, since they are only 500 meters away. Also PJ 's (German clinical internship) working at Bugando Medical Centre (in partnership with Würzburg University) enjoy the physical distance to hectic Bugando hill (10min car ride).
If you want to do exercise - the roads in Isamilo are good for running and Isamilo International School (just around the corner) has a professional, outdoor swimming pool. If you stay long-term you can join ultimate frisbee, soccer and other organized sports that take place just nearby.
….And if drinking beer is your favourite sport - fear not - there are several bars and pubs in the area :) The new and popular bar “Flexzone” is just around the corner.
The international language training centre is (literally) next door and offers high standard Swahili classes for foreigners. They also have a small preschool from 8 am-1 pm on weekdays. Don’t worry we barely notice them after they are done singing the national anthem :)
For shopping Rock City Shopping Mall, U-turn supermarket and Kirumba market (veggies and fruits) are located within short walking distance.
We share the compound with our long time friend Damien and his wife Anna. They are very nice and helpful if there should be any questions or issues while we are not around. Also they will do your check-in as we are usually not in Mwanza.
Feel free to contact us! We will supply a fully packed guest memo after right before your trip with all our hot tips and hints.
Between us we speak German, Norwegian, English and Swahili.
You´ll find out pretty soon, that Isamilo is a great area to stay at. Everything close by (Uturn supermarket, Rock City mall, small pubs and bars, as well as city centre in walking distance).
