Maridhiya House, Lamu
Step back in time and into Maridhiya House - an outstanding example of a traditional 18th Century Lamu townhouse – recently restored, rebuilt and extended to the very highest standards.
Situated in a particularly peaceful and unspoilt area of Lamu’s historic Stone Town and within the UNESCO World Heritage area, Maridhiya House has been comprehensively renovated with great skill and attention to detail. The result is a beautiful, comfortable and very ‘liveable’ house - and one which retains its many historic Swahili decorative features and authentic atmosphere.
The ground floor daka entrance porch and spacious reception galleries have 13ft (4 metre) high ceilings and a wealth of meticulously restored decorative plasterwork – and the large and airy first floor living and dining area features traditional Islamic masharabya window screens imported from Cairo and built-in baraza sofa seats.
The accommodation includes three large double bedrooms – with built-in wardrobes and ceiling fans – and spacious ensuite shower rooms. Two breezy roof terraces on the second and third floors have lovely and uninterrupted views across neighbouring gardens and the Lamu rooftops to the Lamu channel and Manda Island.
