palm house - modern swahili style house built around an open courtyard

This stunning Swahili style house for nine to ten (9 to 10) people is designed around an open courtyard with a tall central Pemba Island palm tree.

The living and dining areas look onto the courtyard and another small tropical side garden with a royal palm and white thunbergia.

It is spacious, yet compact with two doubles and one triple bedroom on the first floor, all ensuite with private balconies.

The second floor with an open terrace and three sun beds, leads to a small covered baraza area in front of the fourth bedroom. This master bedroom has a Lamu four-poster bed and balconies on two sides.

Like all the Shela houses, there is a panoramic view from the covered rooftop, with a bar, sun beds and baraza lounging area.

The house is a two minute long walk away from the seafront and a five minute walk away from Shela beach.
