Immerse yourself in the Swahili culture when stepping into Makubwa House. A great location, situated in a quiet street just two minutes off the seafront and a three-minute walk to the Old Fort, our home is an ideal retreat for your stay in the mystical island of Lamu.

Makubwa House was built in the 1850’s for a Patrician family with all the characteristics of the traditional architecture, at times it hosted up to 3 or 4 generations simultaneously that were living in the different floors. After a careful restoration loads of the original features such as the original courtyard, carved doors, mangrove beams and thatched roofs were maintained so that it would not lose the feeling of a real Lamu House with the Arab, Persian and Indian influences that distinguished the intricated and mesmerizing Swahili architecture.
Our home consists of 3 levels: at the bottom a traditional entrance with a classic baraza leading to the courtyard with your private plunge pool. On the second floor you will find the air-conditioned Master bedroom, 3 beds in the gallery, the dining area and our equipped kitchen which you are free to use during your stay. On the upstairs floor enjoy the sun and the panoramic views of the town and the ocean, the amazing stars and the colors at sunrise and sunset or relax under the thatched roof while sipping on a glass of wine. There is also a bed in the gallery for lazy siestas or an extra guest. The second air-conditioned bedroom is also located here as well as a full bathroom.
Julius will be at your disposal during your stay in Makubwa House and will cater to any need you may have. Babu Ali is our doorman and resides in his private apartment at the bottom floor to ensure the house is taken care of. All our beds have mosquito nets, towels and body soap is also provided. Wi-Fi is available throughout most of the upper floors. We offer laundry or meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) at additional cost. We are also happy to arrange your transfers, activities and shopping.
Karibuni to Makubwa House, we are always happy to host you!

My name is Abdalla although everyone knows me as Dula. I was born and raised in Lamu where I met my beautiful wife. We both moved to Germany where we are raising our two kids. I do love swimming and interacting with people so if I am in Lamu I will be more than happy to walk with you to the market and share some of the stories of my youth in the Island.
