The house is situated on an island on the east coast of Kenya.

It is a beautiful small island that has a strong history for being one of the most important shipping ports in kenya's History. It now resides as a small remote getaway. The island offers allot of space and freedom, with no cars just sand and small stone pathways. Everything is within walking distance with most of the architecture on the island matching that of its historical muslim style, with macouti roofing and beautifully decorated wooden doorways, with the use of lime stone and coral for building materials.

The house is opened out allowing allot of natural sunlight to access the property throughout the day and never feels like you are inside for to long. All the bedrooms consist of double beds with two being outside terrace rooms for those who feel like escaping the confines of being inside, the rooms are fitted with cupboards and bedside tables as well as large curtains to provide privacy as well as a refreshing breeze. The space used for dinning is an outside table covered by the terrace walkway that is situated in the middle of the house situated in the main converging are of the house. The water used in the house is taken from out well which is not drinkable for those who would be curious as to weather the tap water would be ok to drink, this includes the shower water which is heated using solar panels.

The island is small with their being local stores and markets as well as a few kenyan upmarket stores. There are bars and restaurants in Shella as well as some fun restaurants to go to on the island opposite which is a quick boat trip across. The island provides a great open beach free of people as well as snorkelling, waterskiing, kite surfing and well as deep sea fishing that can be organised with the local hotel 'Peponi' but this also depends on the time of year.
