About Al-Yafir/Mary Greenwell's House
Another of Claudio Modola's masterpieces, Al-Yafir was completed in 2006. The house is full of Swahili character and elegance.
Located only steps from Shela beach, the 4-bedroom (3 doubles, 1 single) 4-level oceanfront home suits up to 7 guests comfortably.
The ground floor has a majestic entrance with stairs entering a breezy open terrace with a dining room and a comfortable lounging area. The chill-out atmosphere, hanging plants and soft furnishings exude romance. The master bedroom is located on the third floor and the rooftop terrace features another comfortable lounging area with a view of the Lamu channel.
Staff & Dining
The rental includes 3 staff to take care of your shopping, cooking, cleaning and laundry. Make sure to bring your favourite drinks and delicacies as you are unlikely to find your favourite wines, champagne and cheeses in Lamu. Depending on the season, all sorts of fresh fruits, vegetables, fresh fish, lobster, crab, prawns and oysters can be ordered and brought to the door.
