shela house lamu

Sleeps 9 people. Built on 3 floors around an open courtyard, the house well and an ancient gardenia. The entrance hall leads into the courtyard, edged by a baraza sitting and eating area.

Two staircases lead from the courtyard to the upper rooms and terraces. It is an old house of great character, with ample room for nine people or 2 families. There are 5 ensuite bedrooms – 3 double, another with 2 large 4-poster single beds and a smaller single bedroom. There is also a nursery room and a cot with 2 beds adjoining the major suite.

A spacious second floor dayroom and terrace provide additional lounging or games areas, with a small library of books for all ages. Most time is spent on the two rooftops – here you can eat, sleep, play cards, or just gaze out at the sea and surrounding islands. At night it is a perfect spot for stargazing. A couple of minutes down to the beach.
