The cottage accommodates 4 people. There is a two people bed in the loft and two single beds in the main room. A baby cot is available on request and at no extra charge. The kitchenette is fully equipped with convenience appliances such as an electric kettle, blender, fridge, and microwave.
Many of the fruit trees in the garden produce loads of fruit during different seasons of the year. You get to pick and eat Golden apples in the months of November and December, Avocado in the middle months of the year, 5 different types of Guava in the first quarter of the year, and various mango varieties in December, January, February. Make some preserves and carry it back home.
We have a large Gazebo which is a relaxing and cool place to enjoy meals, read a book, play table games or just hang out.
An early morning walk up any of the many hills provides good exercise and an elevated view of the villages. There is a waterfalls a walking distance away and on a quite night you can hear the whisper of its rumble. Kendu bay is about an hours drive away and you can go there to swim in lake Victoria or stand by the shores of lake Simbi Nyaima and listen to the legend of its formation as told by the local story teller. You may also want to spend a night away and visit Ruma national park where you will see the rare Roan antelope in the only place on earth that it exists. For people who love water sports you may want to visit some of our islands and jet ski or engage in other sports. You could drive around the lake to visit the kit mikayi Rock and climb up its rugged face, and listen to yet another fascinating legend. Abach Valley Cottage is your gateway to Eco tourism in the lake region.
I have minimal interaction with the guests unless the guest expressly requires it. My interaction will be limited to Meet and greet and maybe farewell.
Abach is a small village of 22 homes nestled in a river valley. Everybody is related to everybody. A river provides a source of water, development, and socialisation. People love guests and invite them home for a meal. The main source of livelihood is farming.
The easiest way to travel around is by motorbike taxi, shared taxi (matatu), by car hire, or by personal taxi.
