Ttunu House

This accommodation cannot yet be booked on Find more accommodation options in Lamu.

Ttunu’s spacious ground floor, which includes entrance hall, courtyard, kitchen, pantry, dining gallery and reception galleries, have particularly high ceilings and lovely turquoise-painted cross beams. They look out onto the large and private walled garden - planted with palm trees, red & white hibiscus and white frangipani – to name just a few of its flourishing plants and flowers. A raised pergola terrace smothered in pink and white bougainvillea, with expansive baraza seating is a nice, quiet and shady place to dine or to relax.

On the first floor is an airy dining terrace overlooking the garden, and a secluded courtyard living area open to the sky and lined with baraza bench seats – a perfect space for entertaining and stargazing. Adjoining the courtyard are a charming, intimate sitting room with relaxing baraza sofa area, and two single bedrooms with antique Swahili four poster beds. Each room has an en-suite bathroom.

On the second floor is the master bedroom – large and l-shaped with a spacious en-suite bathroom. It is quietly situated to the rear of the house, looking out over Ttunu’s and other neighbouring gardens. Running the entire length of the front of the house is a generous terrace – partly covered with a bougainvillea and jasmine-clad pergola, and partly makuti-thatched. Outside the second bedroom (again with ensuite bathroom) is a nice, private seating area with baraza seating.
