Jaha House: renting a beautiful Swahili townhouse on Lamu

Shela Village, Kenya
The peaceful tropical island of Lamu is a place like no other. Life here revolves around long beach strolls, dhow sailing and exploration of the old Swahili settlements—with their unique coral-stone townhouses. We rented one of such houses, in Shela Village: the beautifully renovated Jaha.
