About Kilele House

Kilele House near Shela Village is a stunning and tastefully furnished 5-bedroom house, all en suite. All rooms have a king size bed. It is on an elevated property with lovely sea views from different points of the house. Ideal for our special guests to spend quality & private time with their friends or family away from the village. The villa has several chill spots with throw pillows adding to your comfort.

The house has AC in only one room but the house is built with many large windows all round making it very airy and breezy even on the hottest of days and nights. If you leave your windows open at night, you will sleep to the sound of the long white curtain sheers flying, sounding just like the ocean waves. The flying curtain sheers add character to the house. What makes this villa stand out is the silence in the area – no motor boats zooming past at 6 am or people talking loudly or shouting in the area.


The first floor has a room with a swimming pool by it – you can dive from the room window. This floor also has a kitchen with a lovely large terrace for chilling. The second floor has 2 bedrooms, you can also dive into the pool from one of them. The third floor has the biggest bedroom with a cool bathtub for soaking in. It’s like a jacuzzi without the jets. It has a large sitting area outside for chilling as a large group or even solo. The fourth floor also has a large bedroom with the best ocean view. It also has a large veranda where you can sit and enjoy the best sunrise or sunset imaginable. This is a great spot to capture videos or pictures of the sunset/rise.


There are several staff there to help make your stay as easy as possible: There’s a house manager, a chef who you can liaise with to create a menu and a shopping list that you will additionally pay for as groceries aren’t covered, there’s a security guard.


It is a slow 20-minute walk from the jetty if you want to walk. The Polaris vehicle can take you closer to the beach where you will only walk for 3 minutes. The vehicle can be used to take you to Lamu for your personal shopping or for the cultural tour and this trip will cost $50 one-way. You may opt to come back by boat if you wish or the Polaris car. The car can be used to go to the sand dunes by the beach, this is included in the price.
