Shela Beach, Lamu
An amazing beachfront house in Lamu, able to sleep up to 14 people in 4 double bedrooms and a large dormitory-style quadruple, all en suite. The house comes with a breath-taking infinity pool with a bar area and Barraza seating area, large dining room and living room on the first floor. Off one side of the first floor is a stunning alfresco terrace shaded by a huge baobab, while the rooftop has a bar, lounge and two swinging beds where you can enjoy panoramic views of Lamu channel.
The house also comes with multiple other chill-out areas including a gazebo on the dunes behind the house overlooking the Indian Ocean. Shela Beach’s excellent team of staff will help you out to make your stay the trip of a lifetime and can include a chef if you want a fully-catered option.
A visit to Lamu, on the Northern part of the Kenyan Coast, is one of the best experiences the country has to offer. Landing at the airstrip on the mainland you take a boat taxi over to the island and experience Swahili culture like nowhere on earth. The island is steeped in Swahili history – spices, slaves and sultans – and the global connections this ancient trading hub has shaped. Transport on the narrow lanes is by donkey, or by boat around the island. Whether you want to stay in Lamu or Shela town and get swept away on culture and history or escape down to near-deserted Kizingoni beach and unbelievable skies and water sports, Lamu is the place and we have a house for you. Add to your experience by going go deep-sea fishing off Lamu, or venture to Kiwayu. We can also set up overnight dhow experiences, sleeping on the deck of the traditional Arabian ship in decedent comfort and watching the night sky as you fall asleep…. Lamu really is incredible.
