Amu House is a fully restored 16th century Swahili house with 7 comfortable, self contained guest rooms each with its own veranda on the two upper floors. We serve a full breakfast downstairs in the historic original Swahili house, and have a beautiful breezy rooftop with a hammock and day beds for all our guests to enjoy. Conveniently located just a minute's walk from the jetty and the seafront, Amu House is perfectly situated. A quiet, private home in the middle of a historic paradise!


Amu House on Lamu Island is located off the coast of Northern Kenya. The breezes of the Indian Ocean and the islands of the Lamu Archipelago offer many beautiful places to visit. Sailing is a big part of our culture, and we recommend that our guests explore the area by land as well as by sea. Perhaps a simple day trip to one of our incredible nearby beaches may be the perfect way to relax on your holiday. Or take a sailing trip to snorkel and/or fish with lunch included; enjoy a beautiful sunset cruise with drumming and singing on board, or take the time to explore the nearby islands as we can take you on a variety of exciting sea adventures!

And if you prefer to stay on land, relaxing on the rooftop and enjoying the breezes in the hammock may be the perfect way to spend your afternoon after getting "lost" in the maze of Lamu's streets. With no cars or vehicles, only donkeys for transport, spend the morning winding through our historic town, stumbling across pieces of an ancient culture meeting the modern day. Lamu Town is a place history can come alive in your imagination. Feel the ancient times that passed by.


Our historic 16th century house has been operating as a Bed and Breakfast for many years. You have to option of renting the entire house for a large gathering of family and friends, or you can rent a private bedroom and meet others also traveling in the area. There are many common spaces available through out the house, in addition to 7 large, comfortable bedrooms with their own verandah space. Feel free to close yourself in or intermingle with others. Breakfast is served in a common space downstairs, between 8 and 10am. Dinner can be arranged in advance tho we encourage our guests to sample the many incredible restaurants on the island.


We have a very welcoming manager at Amu House named Kesh. He can help arrange and guide our visitors as they make plans to enjoy their holiday. You will start your day with a full, healthy breakfast, and then let your adventures begin! We encourage our guests to explore the island, and will help support you with ideas and recommendations through out your stay. There is always a person on site at Amu House, available day and night to help with any questions or concerns.

My stay at Amu House was such a phenomenal experience. While Mwanase was traveling when I arrived, she did everything to make sure that I was warmly welcomed by Kesh and Samuel. From the moment Kesh came to greet me at the airport, I already felt at home. Kesh and Samuel quickly helped me integrate into Lamu and gave me advice to make sure my trip went as smoothly as possible. When I expressed an interest in learning more about Swahili culture, Samuel even went out of his way to prepare me a traditional Swahili breakfast! I would highly recommend staying at Amu house as you'll get the best tips/advice/warm welcome on the island!

If you're looking for a beautiful, rustic home smack dab in the middle of Lamu Town within close proximity to the jetty to get to the airport or Shella, look no further! Amu House is it! I had an amazing 5 day/4 night stay at this property. At the airport, I was picked up by Kesh, Amu House manager. During the remainder of my stay, Kesh would be my go-to guy for tips on where to go, how to get there, and the price ranges of things. Amu House was like a home away from home. The rooftop has such an amazing view of the island, in which I watched the sunrise everyday. The mosquito net was a life saver and the morning breakfast (especially the ginger tea Kesh prepared) helped to start each day off right. Getting to Shella (the neighboring town) was so easy by boat. It took less than 10 mins because the jetty station is literally a 1-minute walk from Amu House. The restaurants nearby the house are also very good. Kesh will recommend stuff based on what you're looking for so don't be afraid to ask him. My time spent in Lamu was amazing thanks to the hospitality of Amu House. I can't wait to come back!

We had the most amazing time in Lamu. Amu House is just off the main thoroughfare and the docks, making it centrally located and removed from some of the chaos. The House is absolutely beautiful, with incredible craftsmanship in the woodwork, carving and furniture. There's also a great roof deck from which you can see (seemingly) all of Lamu Town. The staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming, and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again when I'm next in Lamu.

Absolutely perfect! We picked it for the price and good reviews. We'll return again for the same reasons and because of the great hosting and services!

Breathtaking views, the sweetest hosts (picked us up from the airport), a comfortable Swahili house, traditional taste breakfast and a wonderful stay in Lamu overall. We enjoyed every moment in Amu House, the peacefull Lamu village and the Shela beach reached by a nice walking. We are planning to come back with other friends in the next months. Thank you!

The Amu house is a pefect place to stay. For European travellers, it's not Always easy to find a good accomodation in Africa. Is comparable with a normal European accommodation. The view on the rooftop is great. You can see the whole island (which is for us a bit dirty). Amu house is an escape to that dirt. The rooms are very big. The beds have a good quality and are provided with mosquito clamboos. I missed some place to put all my cloths, but it was OK. The only thing you need to know is that there is no warm water (nowhere on the island you can find warm water). The breakfast is ok, but monotonous. Although, the morning juices are great and very fresh (mango, pineapple, orangejuices….). Kesh helps you to find out the best Captain on the Island for a Dhow boat trip. I can assure that the few guys he advices are the most reliable. You will see a lot of captains @ the coast, but they are not reliable. After a few days we enjoyed Lamu a lot. It takes some time to adjust to the pole pole culture. People on Lamu are very peacefull and very kind and sincere (even in election period). On the opposite of the Island you can discover nice paradises (Shela & Manda beach). I would definitely recommend to choose for Amu house. (a paradise in the middle of a busy center)

Beautiful little boutique B&B that is in the heart of the World Heritage site of Lamu old town (the lower floors of the building are dating back hundreds of years!). The rooms are very comfortable and full of character. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace overlooking the town and sea was a particular highlight. We were very well looked after, with our host meeting us at the airport and accompanying us back. Highly recommend this place for a stay in a culturally rich and colourful seaside town.
