We booked two rooms and they each had a great view - over the lake and terrific to watch birds. The gentleman who runs this house is kind and helpful. The bathrooms were nice and clean. The balconies are super. I wish we hadn't been so tired or we would have accepted his invitation to watch the Tour de France...

Other residents had taken over. It was all a bit dirty too. I changed hotel the next day. The owner (or person welcoming) was a nice...

Stayed at the Kivga Holiday Bungalow for two nights with family. The bungalow is located very close to the ancient city so travelling to and from the sightseeing wasn't a hassle. Shops and eateries aren't far away either. This house-turned-bungalow had four rooms; one in the ground floor, two in the first floor and another in the third. All rooms...

We ran into this guest house by accident and were immediately convinced by the friendly, easy going, elderly owner, who also organizes trips on demand, and the great house. Best stay on our 3 week trip.
