At Banana House Lamu you can rent a room, a floor, or the whole house. It has managed to combine the convenience of a hotel with the privacy and personal space afforded by a home rental.
The Ground Floor contains 3 bedrooms (which can be interconnected) and 2 bathrooms. It has a large veranda, great daybed and access to the garden; ideal for a family with children.
The First Floor has 3 self contained double bedrooms. The large veranda and sitting and dining areas are covered by a makuti roof which provides refreshing shade in the daytime and a place where you can sit in the evening and gaze at the stars.
The Banana House Rooftop has become a beloved Penthouse of almost 200 square meters containing a large bedroom, bathroom, separate sitting and dining areas plus a sun or star gazing baraza (Swahili bench) with sea views across the tree tops: a private and favourite place to stay in Shela.
Monika’s passion for plants has created a garden that is a lush tropical paradise with bougainvillea, frangipani, hibiscus and shade-providing palm trees. By night it becomes a fairy tale from 1001 nights, Swahili dinners, candles and perfumes of food and scented jasmine. We also have a fabulous swimming pool for you to enjoy!
It is a fantastic house for groups who want to celebrate weddings, birthdays, seminars and do yoga, workshops or retreats.
