    We had a wonderful stay at Ampoja House and were very sorry to leave yesterday. We would definitely love to return. Chrispus and the rest of the team were fabulous! It is rare to find a team of so many who were all working so hard whilst at the same time respecting our privacy, and always bearing smiles. Thank you to your team for their hospitality!

The beauty and privacy of Ampoja is simply wonderful and we had a fantastic stay, with lots of laughs, delicious food, a beverage or two and perfect weather. You have built a truly wonderful house in a fantastic spot and were incredibly generous to rent it to all of us. Thank you also to your wonderful team who could not have done more.
