All our double rooms are spacious and can accommodate up to 2 guests. The rooms were built in swahili style.

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.

Our staff ready to welcome you are 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.

We had a fantastic stay at Waridi House, made all the more special by the fantastic staff - Crispus, Ketana & Naima. They could not have been more welcoming.

A really nice house with a lot of space. The staff were really nice and helpful, the food was good, especially the seafood. Naima, the housekeeper, also do good massage, mani- and pedicure at good prices. The house is located in Shela town, 5 minutes from the lovely beach. The only complaint is that the "pool" on the pictures, is not really a pool. We chose the house because of the pool (we have kids), but it was too small to use for bathing, so a bit disappointing. It is an open house, so we saw a lot of ants, spiders, mosquitos, geckos, and had a lot of mosquito bites.

I loves staying at Waridi over easter 2013, great architecture, clean linen, great service. My only issue is that the house is right next to a grave yard site. I think its important to give superstitious people like me a heads up on that. Otherwise great experience!
