Papaya Holiday Home was perfect for our large group! Florence and her staff were kind and accommodating, and the property was large, clean, and in a great location! It was the best rental home in Uganda we've stayed in! We will definitely be staying there again!

Management response:

What a joy for us to get a review like this one. Many thanks from all the staff of Papaya Holiday Home, not just for these wonderful comments but also for being true ambassadors of your faith during your visit to Uganda as well as during your stay at Papaya Holiday Home..

I stayed at Papaya for a week in mid July and had a great stay; very peaceful and easygoing. Florence and her staff were very hospitable, and the house also functions as a nice venue for dinners and events. Would definitely recommend to others. Thanks, Florence!

Management response:

We were happy to provide a temporary home away from home and are delighted that you appreciated the relaxed homely atmosphere at Papaya Holiday Home. Please drop by any time for a cup of tea.

About the neighbourhood
Muyenga, at its peak, stands 4,285 feet (1,306 m) above sea level and is one of the highest points in the city of Kampala. For that reason, the hill was chosen to house the water storage tanks for National Water and Sewerage Corporation, which supply Kampala, Kira and Mukono. Because of the water tanks, Muyenga is also known as Tank Hill. The hill commands expansive views of the city towards the north and the west. To the east and the south the predominant view is that of nearby Lake Victoria. While the location is not right in the centre of town, it is closely located to a strip of sprawling garden-setting restaurants, offering a wide range of food choices and a very relaxed experience (ranging from Italian, to Eritrean, Indian etc
