It is a nice get away for a group of people. It however was DEFINITELY not a 5 min walk from the sea front. The description says a pool. But the size of the pool was a little more than the size of a big sauna. Wouldn't consider it a pool. Cleanliness was also very wanting.

We had a great time. The house was a little far from Shela but overall it was a great group getaway.

I stayed at the wonderful Shamba Viking for two weeks in 2010. The house is a beautiful combination of traditional and contemporary architecture and have all the modern facilities one can ask for without loosing any charm. The stay was both peaceful and filled with exiting experiences thanks to the situation between the town of Lamu and the beach. The night sky over Lamu and Shamba Viking is one of a kind, it seems like all the stars to be found have gathered up together. The Viking family who runs Shamba Viking are most hospitable and everything went on very smoothly, no complaints what so ever. Lamu is definitely one of my favorite places ever visited and Shamba Viking is the place to stay.
