    What guests are saying:

    “Ivor’s 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious and in an excellent location. The view is spectacular of Lamu/water and excellent sunrises. We stayed 3 nights and wished we stayed longer. When we were there was an excellent breeze from the water that the apartment was very comfortable for temperature. We were picked up at the airport and dropped off at the airport. His staff were great, they were on time and helped us with our bags. Everyone involved was very friendly. We really enjoyed the location as walkable to Shelah beach or you can take a boat. There is a great restaurant a block away called Mangrove … we ate there breakfast and dinner everyday ( say Hi to Janet ! Lots of locals eating at Magroves and local prices ). This apartment is great value. This apartment could fit 6 people if needed. If you have mobility issues it might be difficult to walk up the 3 flights of stairs to the apartment. Ivors was by far the best accommodation we had in Kenya and Tanzania. Hope to return again. Thank you !”

    Small family house in Shela

    Due to Corona restrictions we are blocking all reservations until August. During this time we'll add a new floor to separate eating and lounging areas. Me and my family stays here around two months a year. Two adults, one toddler and one four-year-old at the last visit. Kahindi takes care of laundry, shopping, cooking and more. He stays at the ground floor and has been helping out since the house was built.

    What guests are saying:

    “Had a wonderful stay. Jonas was very responsive and helpful with the booking and the house was immaculate and a lovely space. Kahindi was such a lovely man and really looked after us while we were there, every morning he provided us with a wonderful breakfast, the fresh fruit and fresh juice were particularly appreciated. The house is a short walk through the village to the beach but I personally particularly liked that as it meant you could absorb some of the village life and culture. The humdrum of the village in the morning and evening were for me a delight. Overall a wonderful stay and I will definitely be back again in the future! Thank you Jonas and Kahindi.....”

  • Historic Amu House in Lamu Town

    Historic Amu House in Lamu Town

    Amu House is a fully restored 16th century Swahili house with 7 comfortable, self contained guest rooms each with its own veranda on the two upper floors. We serve a full breakfast downstairs in the historic original Swahili house, and have a beautiful breezy rooftop with a hammock and day beds for all our guests to enjoy. Conveniently located just a minute's walk from the jetty and the seafront, Amu House is perfectly situated. A quiet, private home in the middle of a historic paradise!

    What guests are saying:

    “Amu house is beautiful! Great location, the manager on staff was very friendly and the breakfast was great. Overall, a great place and a great value! As other reviewers said, it is close to a mosque so be prepared for that, and other noises in the alley, which is to be expected in Lamu. We had a problem on our first night in which the power went out which made it quite uncomfortable given the heat. The host had an electrician there the next morning, yet unfortunately it was not getting repaired in time so we had to switch Airbnbs. The host was communicating very quickly with us during the ordeal. This problem seemed to be isolated though, so should the opportunity arise, we would for sure consider this place again!”
