The house consists of four towers, around an elevated, 16-metre infinity pool. Shady makuti-covered terraces run between the four areas, providing privacy for the pool area, while allowing the breeze to blow through and gently sway the hanging beds.
Entertainment areas abound, with a welcoming bar and baraza seating area by the entrance, a large lower dining area, a rooftop dining/recreation area and plenty of room around the pool for sun worshiping and dining under the stars.
Named after the northerly monsoon wind which blows in the summer months, and which for thousands of years carried dhows to Lamu from India and Arabia, laden with treasure for trade. The house is imaginatively designed and sits back from the beach with wonderful sea views and is surrounded by landscaped tropical gardens.
The two front towers house four spacious bedrooms, while the back two towers house the communal areas, kitchen and the sumptuous master bedroom, with its star- gazing bathtub and outside shower.
Each bedroom has a private terrace and its own special bathroom. Nothing has been spared to ensure that Kaskazi House is as comfortable, functional and luxurious as possible.
