Lamu Retreats offers a selection of holiday homes and luxury house rentals on the beautiful Lamu Island in Kenya.
Lamu is not a typical tropical beach holiday. Do not expect to find beaches swept by attendants and dotted with fiercely contested umbrellas and sun-loungers. There are no parasails or large yellow inflatables being towed up and down the channel nor are there beach bars every twenty metres.
However all of Lamu Retreats are only a few minutes walk from the sea, where the dhows and local fishing boats are moored. The water laps at the foundations of Shela's front row houses and the walk to the Peponi Hotel and the miles of open beach beyond may require a detour through the village to avoid wet feet if the tide is in. Sadly after that all the place has to offer is miles and miles of virtually deserted beach.
