Let me introduce you to the Moon Houses.

We are located in the pristine village of Shela, along the cost of the Lamu archipelago. It is one of the most prestigious and well-preserved location on the Kenyan coast.

Since centuries, Swahilis from Lamu island have been welcoming travelers and traders from Oman and India. Their culture and traditions are built on this rich and fascinating historical influence.

Shela beach is a 13 km long un-spoilt white sandy beach. Most of our homes have a close access to the sea and offer spectacular sea views from the bedrooms and terraces.

This destination will satisfy all guests looking for white sandy beach, water sports, cultural encounter with the Swahili community, historical visits to Lamu Town (UNESCO World Heritage Site), and wonderful and refined Swahili seafood.

Our homes are privately owned. They are built in pure Swahili Style and are all furnished with antique furniture bought by late Anne Spoerry – one of Kenya’s first Flying Doctors.

Included in your stay:

- Airport transfers

- Cook and room steward

- On-location manager who can assist you to organize local activities

- Laundry service

- Wifi

Our cooks, stewards, and managers are entirely devoted to our guests' service.

Guests can select their meals from our guideline menu. Our cooks will do all food errands with a lot of care to get the freshest ingredients and will prepare all meals according to the guest’s choice.

Meals will be served in a private dinning area or on a terrace.

Food is charged at cost and recorded in a book of accounts always available to client for review.

I stayed at Moonhouses in "Kiwandani House" with my 4 and half year old grandson in December. We both loved it. The views from the very comfortable and beautifully decorated houses are amazing. The warm sea is a 1 minute stroll away so before breakfast we would have a quick wake up dip. There is freshly caught fish for lunch and/or dinner every day. A lovely pool at the hotel, beautifully locally made day beds to lounge on everywhere. Staff was helpful and kind. The only thing I missed was a big shower which I prefer to a bath, but some of the houses do have showers. They are all differently decorated. I would love to come back to Moonhouses and try out all of them. Warmly recommended.
