Nyumba Papaya


... is located in the village of Shela on the island of Lamu on the northern end of the of Kenya Coast.

This private house, in a lovely quiet setting by the dunes to the south end of the village, has 4 rooms for up to 8 adults. Designed by the owner, an artist from Florence, this modern house stands in a verdant garden and has a particularly peaceful roof terrace. Essentially self-catering, the house comes with a full staff including cook and cleaner.

Nyumba Papaya is a great option for guests wanting to be out of the immediate centre of the village and who are not too hung up on being in an original Shela house.
