The space
Hi. My name is Rama, I am from Lamu. My friend Stefania lives in Amsterdam but spends her holidays on this paradise island anytime she can.
I would like you to fall in love with Lamu as she did, therefore I invite you to come and stay at this beautiful Barefoot Beach Bungalow, owned by our friend Patrizia. Read below for detailed description, look at the pictures; if you have any question do not hesitate to ask, I will reply promptly, promised!

Remember: included in the price there is not only the bungalow but also the staff; a small speedboat with captain John are also at your service for an extra daily fee. You will pay for the rent of the boat, the fuel, food and drinks (the staff will do shopping for you and prepare your meals whenever you like).
Airport pick up is NOT included, but upon request we can arrange airport pick up (extra fee applies); you don't worry about your luggage, let the staff carry it for you. That's how things are done here on the island, hakuna matata!
One of the best-kept secrets of Africa, the island of Lamu is THE place to be if you want to relax, swim in clear waters, walk on pristine beaches or sail quietly with the dhow, an antique wooden sailing boat typical from here.
Have I mentioned that we have the freshest fish and mangoes in the whole world?
Pristine beach at your doorstep, amazing sea to swim at any time of the day and staff available for you 24/7; luxury and simplicity, that's what makes this place unique! A lovely beach bungalow with a big lounge area to relax right in front of the sea. Here you can enjoy the sunset every day. Located on Manda beach, the bungalow offers you all the amenities you wish to have when on holidays, including free Wi-fi, well-trained staff (6 of them) & assistance 24/7. It's a new listing and we need reviews, therefore it is now on a special offer!!! Did you check the price? For sure much less than what you get for, I promise you! Here you can for sure find time for yourself and de-stress.

If you don't feel like walking, no worries: John, the captain, will take you by boat anywhere you want (you pay for the fuel +30$ a day extra if you wish). If you are lazy the staff will pamper you and arrange anything you need: shopping, meals, massage therapist. They will make sure the house is always clean and nets on beds are ready before you go to bed. If you feel like being active, we can help you to arrange water sports activities, sailing, tours or dinners anywhere on the island. Upon arrival, I will be happy to tell you everything about the island, sightseeing & activities.
The bungalow is directly on the beach; the main bedroom is an open space; the other bedroom is on a mezzanine, and can be accessed from the main bedroom. Keep it in mind if you are 2 couples: no walls in between. You cannot see each other but you could hear each other snoring ;-)
There is 1 bathroom with shower. Ideal for a couple, a small family with children older than 12 or a group of 4 friends. There are a kitchen, pantry and staff available for you day and night. On the porch, which is right on the beach in front of the sea, you can enjoy your meals, tea and relax after swimming or sunbathing. The dining area enjoys the natural breeze from the sea.
Are you ready to take your shoes off and live in a dream? Come soon then:-)
See you at the BBB

Where you’ll be

Lamu, Lamu County, Kenya

Manda beach is a quiet part of the island. There is a 5 star hotel not far, with swimming pool, amazing bar and restaurant whenever you want to be not too far from home. You can either walk (5 mins) or take the boat.
Diamond Beach Club is a bit further. It's where parties are, pizza and movie night are held on Fridays, alway open for meals or activities. Either walk (15 mins) or by boat (5 mins).
Shela Beach, is just on the other side of the water. It's the place to go to have a nice dinner at any restaurant, from simple to fancy, or have drinks at Peponi, or walk on the beach for sunset, or swim. By boat it is only 5 minutes or less. John will take you and pick you up
Lamu Town is a Unesco Heritage Site. It's only 10 mins by boat from the bbb; it's where all the shops are, wood carving ateliers, the local museum, the donkey sanctuary, many restaurants and some bars and the 'madafu' man: to get fresh coconut water when the heat is too much.

Hi, I am Rama and I am from the most beautiful place on earth: Lamu Island. If you have never heard of it, please search it online and see what others say about it. Then come to visit us here and experience it yourself! My business partner is Stefania, she is from Italy and lives in Amsterdam. As often as possible she comes to spend her holidays here in East Africa, in Lamu and Zanzibar, especially to escape the winter in Europe. She loves this side of the world as much as I do and is the one who keeps the communication flowing. We opened a little hotel in Nungwi and I manage some properties in Lamu. We are happy to give you a good house or room for your holidays and to show you the good life on these paradise islands. If you need to sit back, relax and enjoy, this is the right place for you. We are going to do our best to give you unforgettable memories of your holidays. We love sailing with the dhow at sunset, walking on the beach, swimming, jogging, exercising and eating fresh and healthy food from the islands, especially fish, crab, shrimps and lobster ;-) If you have any question do not hesitate to contact us, we'll answer for sure!
