Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are family doctors from Seattle who went to Rwanda in 2008 to visit our daughter who was working there. We met some local doctors and volunteered to help with their work. Since we also have degrees in Public Health, we found there was a lot we could do to help. After going there many times, we realized that living in a house is the best way to feel at home. Because we wanted a super-sized water system and great kitchen, we decided to build a home there that we could come back to when we return for our volunteer work with the Batwa Pygmies of Rwanda.
Why the Owner Chose Rwanda:
The safety, roominess, and tranquility of this neighborhood, plus its location near the airport, a nearby swimming pool/bar/BBQ and an amazing market all attracted us to build on this site. But more than that, our dear friend Dr. Dan lives right behind us! He is an amazing person and his family of 11 are like old friends now. We felt at home being so close to such wonderful people, who also have helped us learn about the local customs and traditions and translate from Kinyarwanda to English. This place is simply the most comfortable, convenient and best-priced of any of the numerous guest houses and hotels we have stayed in on our trips to Kigali. It lets you be close enough to all the action of the city, but within easy reach of the airport if you have a late-night flight.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This house is roomy, quiet, private and peaceful. The veranda is marvelous and the living rooom is cool and inviting even during hot days. There are seperate quarters for the housekeeper and two giant fresh water tanks to ensure a steady supply of water, even in the dry season. With a nice, big wall and located at the far end of a street with a guarded communications tower at the front end, there is almost no traffic and great security, as well as a lovely view of the nearest hills and trees.
