Guest Access

Everything

Interaction with Guests

I interact with my guests as much or as little as they want or require. I always try to be helpful as I have a great deal of knowledge about the Gambia both local and further afield. Most first time guests appreciate being supported when they first arrive until they have built up confidence in getting around.

The Neighborhood

This is a local (URL HIDDEN) is quiet and peaceful and a green almost rural type of environment. Goats and sheep graze on the grassy area outside the compound. The locals are friendly but never intrusive and the children absolutely charming

Getting Around

You can get around by bike (hire available), taxi (we have our regular, reliable driver Ousman)or public bus/car which is very cheap once you get to understand the system a little and I am always willing to help.Going further afield there are a host of public vehicles which are very cheap if a little slow.

Other Things to Note

The compound has electricity with lights and sockets in each (URL HIDDEN) drinking water is also on tap. The best time to visit is between November and April both in terms of the climate and the cheapest available flights.I am also there myself at that time and can help to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.Guests are, of course, welcome to stay outside of those dates but the rain from June to October makes access to the compound difficult and my absence means things may not run so smoothly.

About Jeanette
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
