About the Homestay
My family and I have a large home in a beautiful, quiet location called Phakalane. We live about 8km away from the city center. My husband and I have two children who are now in university outside the country. We have so much space in our house, 4 bedrooms upstairs and a huge self contained guest wing on ground floor, and are willing to make extra cash with the vacant space. We have 3 lounges; one for guests downstairs and one for ourselves upstairs, and another one attached to the guest wing. All bedrooms have bathrooms, and the guest wing is ideal for self-catering, with a cooker, oven, microwave, fridge, TV, kitchenette, shower, bath and double bed as well as an extra single bed for those traveling with a child. We love meeting people from different walks of life.

This was a quiet and convenient place to stay for a few days whilst visiting a few old friends. Jessica was extremely polite, welcoming and helpful, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Jessica's accommodation to other travelers. I would certainly stay here again if I have the opportunity to return to Gaborone. Thank you Jessica.
I really enjoyed my stay with Jessica. The rooms are very spacious and they are kept clean. The atmosphere is very warm and hospitable. Its the place to stay when you are in Gaborone.
We stayed at Jessica`s for the night of the 27th Dec 2015. There were 13 of us and we had driven up from Kimberley. We arrived at 7pm and it was still 38 degree`s. The big disappointment was that only 3 of the 5 rooms we had paid for had aircon that worked so we had to move mattresses and blow up airbeds to get the 13 of us into 3 rooms.
The home was lovely, in a serene neighbourhood. Jessica and her family were accommodating. The room was spacious and well kept. The swimming pool was sorted for us...though we didn't get to swim because we were busy. Great place. home away from home.!
