When you come to Lamu, enjoy your time at one of the newest places in Town:

KIPEPEO GUEST HOUSE - On Kenyatta Avenue - just on the Seafront 5 minutes from Lamu Beach - between Lamu Crafts and Kanu Office.

Enjoy your Lamu stay in one of our beautifully designed and decorated rooms with original Lamu Pili Pili Beds and antique styled furniture.

Our Guest Floor (2nd floor) has three double rooms. Two spacious rooms with own bathroom and shower and one small room with an unshared bath with shower on the corridor. All rooms have a huge double bed (6" x 5") with high density mattresses, ceiling fan, mosquito net, small fridge, access to the balcony with sea view and a shared fully equipped kitchen.

Our Roof Top Room has a small double bed (6" x 4") and a single bed with high density mattresses, stand fan, mosquito nets, a small fridge, bath with shower, terrace with sea view and access to the shared kitchen on the guest floor.

Our Ground Floor Apartment has a kitchen, dining space, bed-room with huge double bed (6" x 5") with high density mattress, ceiling fan, mosquito net, a big bath with double shower, terrace, garden and sea view. There is space to put extra mattresses or beds.

The ground floor apartment is also very recommended for persons with disabilities, especially designed for wheel chairs. It's the only place in Lamu where a room can be accessed without a stair case, it has an extra huge bath room, lowered bed and kitchen furniture.

We are able to welcome groups at special rates by placing additional beds and mattrasses into the huge wide corridor, onto the balcony or on our Roof Top. Ask for our reasonable group rates.

Our spacious beautifully decorated Kipepeo (Butterfly) balcony on the guest floor with breathtaking view to the sea, the Mangroves and the airstrip of Manda Island and the Lamu Coconut Beach “Mnazi Moja“ is a wonderful place to take your self prepared meals or to relax on the Lamu type Barazzas (built-in Concrete Benches) and enjoy the view and the special sound of Lamu. The private guest floor has a
fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, gas–cooker, electric water kettle and everything you need to prepare and enjoy your own meals.

Spend some of your precious holiday time on our impressive Roof Top, either to relax in the sun or shade, to enjoy the amazing view, to have a B-B-Q party with friends, or even to work, as our Roof Top is also suitable for trainings and seminars.

Would you like to sleep under the stars? We provide extra mattresses on demand.
Come and enjoy the beautiful star-view at moonless nights or try to catch the moon during full-moon. An absolutely unforgettable and romantic experience to remember.

Our house was built in 2005 based on the Swahili Style principles, thus it is very airy and breezy so that we don't have to provide Air Condition. If even the wind takes a break, we have strong adjustable ceiling fans in every room and in the corridor.

Kipepeo Guest House has a clean sweet-water well, which ensures safe and fresh water.

During times of power failure - which unfortunately is common on Lamu Island - we have our own generator to provide power any time of the day.

We will be pleased to assist you with your transport to and from Lamu, with excursions in and around Lamu Island and with activities of your special interest. Please don't hesitate to ask for any help or information.

Since we, the owners, live on the first floor of Kipepeo Guest House, we are always there for you whenever you need anything. Don't feel shy. You never disturb us. We are there for you and do anything to make your stay a pleasant one.

On demand we offer pick-up service with our Kipepeo Boat either from Manda Airstrip or from Mokowe Bus Stop or organize trips around the Island for you.
