This is an ancient Swahili house in Shella Village. Newly renovated, the majestic old stone house now has a private garden amidst the traditional red beams and vidakas (decorative shelves in the thick stone walls).
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.
