Forodhani House's location is truly perfect, right on Shella beach in Lamu, off the east coast of Kenya.

In authentic Swahili style, Forodhani House is a large whitewashed building, whose truly stunning location lets you constantly be lulled by the lapping waves, and cooled by the gentle sea breeze which is so refreshing at these latitudes.

It is the ideal place to stay with family or friends (10 to 13 people).

Overlooking the pristine beach and the jetty of the small fishing village of Shella, this large white house oversees the channel of the Indian Ocean that separates Lamu Island from Manda Island.

It offers breathtaking but peaceful views of the to and fro of boats entering and leaving the archipelago.

Even if it's just chance that has brought you here, you'll certainly find that this place is far more than just a simple tropical resort.

For time has stopped here. The clock of the old town of Lamu still shows the 17th century. No cars ... You will adjust to the rhythm of the wake of the dhows (traditional wooden sailing boats) and to the pace of the donkeys. You will enjoy the charm of getting lost in the maze of alleyways in the village, where the smiles of the children and the welcoming friendliness of the inhabitants will guide you where you wish to go.

When you leave the house via the garden, the pristine white sand beach of Shella stretches for 12 km. Fresh water in the pool at home or the salt water of Indian Ocean ? You choose :-) It's holidays :-) !
