Shela house


A restored colonial era village house of great character for nine to eleven (9 to 11) people, well shaded with plants and built on three floors around an open courtyard, the house well and an ancient gardenia.

Old Lamu doors open into a hall and an open inner courtyard edged by a baraza sitting and eating area.

Five en suited bedrooms plus nursery room with a cot and two children beds adjacent to the master bedroom.

There is a day room and terrace provide additional lounging areas with a small library of books for all ages.

Most time is spent relaxing on the two rooftops in hammocks and sun beds or in the walled garden across the passageway. From here one has a view over Shela Village and the channel between Lamu and Manda Island. This is where  guests relax, play cards, listen to music, have their sun downer or just gaze out at the night sky.

The house is a two minute long walk away from the beach.
