Kounakito, Essinkine, Oussouye, Region Ziguinchor, Casamance, Senegal

It is a modern semi-detached single storey house with access to the roof. It has tiled floors and mosquito proof secure windows. All rooms are air conditioned. This is at extra cost to guests. It is surrounded by traditional African houses and is located near the rice fields and the river. Banana and paw paw trees surround the house. It is only a short walk to the market and main street with local traders, and tailors who can make an African shirt or dress in a day. Friendly neighbourhood and always interesting to watch local activities. Two local ladies cook delicious Senegalese cuisine as well as clean the house and do washing, if required. Breakfast included and midday and evening meals can be arranged at a cost of 6 GB pounds.
Our relatives Marcel and Astou Diatta live nearby across the road and will open up the house when you arrive. Knowledge of French is useful, but quite a number of local people do speak English. We can arrange for someone to be available to discuss options for your holiday. The local language is Jola and the greeting is "Kassumay" (Peace) (Pronounced "Kassu-my") They will reply "Kassumay bally" (Only peace)

This house is lovely, clean and spacious. I highly recommend the meals as being good value for the quality of the food. The ladies will really look after you if that’s you want (or leave you alone if not!) The massive open roof terrace is great for sunbathing or looking down on what’s happening around you! A warm shower isn’t what I expected in rural Africa and it’s so welcome after a day exploring.

Some friends and I stayed here during spring break 2018. What a beautiful house! very clean, spacious, lots of room on the roof, air conditioning, nice neighborhood, secure. Not missing a thing. The cook was wonderful. This is a great spot from which to explore Oussouye and the whole Cassamance region. The owners are wonderful people. I highly recommend this place!

One of the best houses in the village - comfortable, clean and convenient for many attractions in the area, such as cycling, kayaking, bird watching and local life in a friendly village. The Atlantic coast is only half an hour away by car. House keeping is by local people, who can cook excellent meals if requested.
