Kinooni* House is one of the most ancient houses on Historic Lamu Island.
Once the home of the Governor of Lamu, who was then the emissary to the Sultan of Zanzibar in the end of the 18th century, it has now been carefully restored with traditional Swahili design and craftsmanship to bring back the elegance, simplicity and grandeur of the original mansion


* Kinooni means “the place of the sharpening stone”
so Nyumba ya Kinooni means : “ the house of where the sharpening stone is”.

Indawo
Kinooni House is extremely spacious. Numerous verandas and terraces make living in our house a luxurious pleasure. The rooms each have their own bathroom and are quite independant from one another. They each have a double bed. The house can host a total of 8 guests.
This house is a true luxury oasis in the heart of historic Lamu Town where behind the rough outside walls you will discover enchanting architectural elements .
This is our vacation home , a retreat where we come three times a year for a couple weeks. We are happy to share it with you, hoping you will enjoy it and respect it.

Lamu County, i-Kenya

Kinooni House draws its name from the sharpening stone that was brought just across the corner of Kinooni House during the seventeenth century for people to come and sharpen their blades on it. The stone is still there. ( Ask Abdul to show it to you) . The neighbourhood is called Kinooni from it.
This area of Lamu is called stone town because it has the biggest and most prestigious houses, set on top of the hill with a commanding view to the sea and over the town scape.
