“Well located, functional and spacious house”
Reviewed November 10, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I must say, my family and I have been very satisfied with our stay in your "California House". In particular we are very happy with the support we have been given by everybody around, especially your family. Unlike in so many other situations in Africa, your family had a very short response time, when we were in trouble of some kind, that being water or power or whatever. Furthermore, having connections to locals is increasing security more that barbed wire.
I thank you very much for the cooperation we have had on terms of payment, and I will gladly recommend your house to my colleges visiting Kisumu in the future.

“You don't want to leave this place”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at this house with a group of 8 people after they did volunteer work in Kenya for two months in rural villages. When they came to this house they were amazed by the whole house. There is so much comfort in the house, like; Good hot water, AC, Big kitchen, a washing machine and so much more. Some of them never wanted to leave the house because it was so nice.
It is located next to one of Kisumu's top resorts. When you stay at the house, which is a lot cheaper then the resort, but can still enjoy their view, food, drinks and pool.
The only thing is that to reach to the house from town center, you will have to travel on a dirt road. It takes you about 10 minutes to reach the center.
Overall it is a great place to get a home feeling vacation for a good price in the greatest city in Kenya.
