Vacation Home Forodhani House
Shela Beach, 80500 Lamu, Kenya –
No credit card needed to book. We'll send you an email confirming your reservation.
Forodhani House is a beautiful beachfront Holiday House situated at the beginning of Shella Beach, the very spot where decades ago a watch-post stood (Forodhani means watch-post in Kiswahili) controlling the to and fro of boats entering and leaving Lamu Island. That’s the first thing which will make your stay here so special : you are on the beach, some meters from Shella Village and Peponi Terrace, with stunning 270° sea-views on Indian Ocean, from Lamu Old Town to Manda and Shella Beach. Here you will relax fully, get lulled by the lapping waves, pamper yourself with good cooking, massages and yoga, enjoy the 12 kms long pristine white sand beach and its activities… sailing, swimming, snorkeling, kite, windsurf, wakeboard or waterski, fishing… you can also explore, discover Lamu Old Town, a Unesco World Heritage Site, and Shella Village, experience the rich Swahili culture and its very welcoming atmosphere... And take the most of Nature, which is truly at its best. Forodhani House comes with 5 professional, friendly staff, among them an excellent cook. We want to make sure your holidays here are both relaxing and interesting. And a bit magic too!
I am in love with life... I like people very much, also dancing, laughing, sailing, mono-skiing, kite-surfing a bit too now... I am not good at cooking but it's not me who cook at Forodhani House, hopefully Amos is here :-)
My neighbours are one of the main reason why I love Lamu so much, they are my friends and my family.
