Life at Makoha


We offer both single and shared ensuite bedrooms. Our bedrooms with ensuites are shared with one other room, with a privacy system ensuring that the ensuites cannot be entered if occupied. Our ensuite bedrooms have a heat pump, TV & furniture & bed included.

We encourage our residents to make their bedroom feel as homely as possible. We make arrangements to set up your own furniture & belongings if you prefer.
