Our home on Manda is off the grid running on solar and lanterns, and is right opposite Shella Island, from our veranda you can see Peponi Hotel. We have a small boat with a captain that is at full use of the house, you have to pay for your fuel and our trusted house manager and cook will help take care of you. It’s a special setting and it’s very much in touch with nature. While there, we would really like to keep it personal and intimate and choose the people that go there carefully. Enjoy!

The house is absolutely wonderful in all senses of the word - tastefully decorated with mostly local items, perfectly located with its own stretch of beach, amazing view and sunsets, and great staff catering to your needs and preparing delicious food. Overall, you feel like you're in paradise. Francesca her place is highly recommended for all who want to enjoy the easy Lamu lifestyle, just across the water from Sheila and Lamu town. All practicalities work out well, good communication, smooth pickup and drop off by boat, groceries can be done by the staff, water and electricity are there, comfortable bed, etc.

This is what Airbnb is all about. Francesca's bungalow comes with two staff. They're both great people who doesn't impose themselves and makes sure that fresh fish is bought, cooked and served. They keep the place incredibly tidy and pick you up by boat in the airport. I can honestly say that the meals cooked by Kalenga matches the best restaurants in the country. No need to leave the Bungalow. The Bungalow is incredibly charming and the pictures doesn't lie one bit. Across from the bungalow you have a great restaurant called Peponi and their rock oysters are to die for. We were four people brainstorming on a software project and couldn't have asked for a better environment. *remember to bring your own wine as it is next to impossible finding in Lamu.
