Beaty's Bed & Breakfast Kisumu

You are Here: › Beaty's Bed & Breakfast Kisumu

The thing you have to remember when you stay at Beaty's Bed and Breakfast in Kisumu Town Kenya is that you're staying with a FAMILY.

In our case, because there were 7 of us, they basically moved out of their rooms to accommodate us.

The night watchman/gardener is a very sweet and helpful man. He even taught us how to cook some Kenyan dishes.

Things at Beaty's are not terribly well organized, but Beaty and her staff and family are very accommodating and willing to help make your stay more enjoyable. 

The water situation is something you need to be aware of. Because it's high on a hill, there is no piped water from the city to the house.

The home relies on a cistern fed from roof drainage. In practice, what this means is there is no running water.

You flush the toilets and do all your washing by scooping water from one of two large barrels in the house.

Breakfast was a little unpredictable and varied depending on who was serving and buying the provisions (or lack there of). 

The setting is very nice, but the house can be a little difficult to find from the main road (having your own transport is a definite asset although Beaty had arranged for a friend to pick us up.)

Please realize this is a busy house, and the level of attention you get may vary depending on what's occurring in the family.
