This is a home that is an integral part of the village of Shela. It is set in an environment where visitors can experience the unique flavour of community village life and have absolute privacy in an oasis of calm in equal measure.
The house has five en-suite bedrooms, including a rooftop bedroom, all with en-suite bathrooms and private verandas, a small plunge pool, and large reception rooms.
The ground floor features a dipping pool and shell fountain with a large dining room area, kitchen and a chill out corner. There are verandas on each floor and a massage area on the second floor. The rooftop terrace overlooks the sand dunes and Shela Village and provides additional lounging areas and a swing bed.
It can comfortably sleep 10 couples and five children and has a permanent roster of staff ready to welcome you: there is Ketana, the waiter, artist and also in charge of maintenance; Naima, the housekeeper and the resident masseuse and beautician. Crispus is the manager of the house and a first class cook – all the food is local and fresh and Crispus will prepare whatever you want to eat.
The beach, which is eight miles long, is quiet, breathtakingly beautiful and a mere five minutes’ walk away – accessed either by walking through Shela or scaling the famous sand dunes which surround the village.
Although the house is self-catering, you have the services of the cook available. You can choose to do your own shopping or opt to have the staff do the shopping and keep a record of the expenses. Fresh dairy products, meat and chicken are difficult to find in Lamu. Luxury foods and drinks should be brought with you.
Laundry service and linen is provided.
