Two handmade cottages are set in a wild garden along Wasini’s coast line. Special care has been taken to leave the environment as untouched as possible and the wild bush stretches right into the compound situated beyond the outskirts of the village.

The space
A solar installation caters for lighting. Phones and cameras can be charged 24/7 but not high-energy consuming devices such as laptops or electric cooler boxes.
Since the island has no ground water, its inhabitants and visitors have to rely entirely on rainwater collected in cisterns. Therefore, the cottage is equipped with a water saving bucket shower and an eco-urine toilet. An additional private flush toilet (using sea water) is located in a nearby bathhouse.

Where you’ll be

Wasini Island, Kenya

Wasini Island is called by many guests “paradise on earth”. At first, this might sound like another inane slogan but Lamu’s little sister truly is a unique haven of peace and tranquility. The hustle and bustle of Kenya’s coastal beaches seem a 1000 miles away. Unpleasant companions such as beach boys and pickpockets are left behind on the mainland. We deem the island to be one of the safest places on earth.
Life on Wasini is mainly influenced by Swahili culture and the surrounding sea including the magnificent Kisite Mpunguti Marine National Park.
Our laid-back home has plenty to offer to the traveler who seeks a nature sanctuary to refresh body and soul.

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much - the wheel, New York, wars and so on - whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man - for precisely the same reasons." (Douglas Adams The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy)

During your stay

We are living on the far end of the spacious property. While highly respecting the privacy of our guests, we are available for any advice. Being island locals and members of the Wasini's Blue Whale Boat Operators, any sea excursion, including scuba diving, can be organized at preferential rates. We will show you the best snorkeling sites where you can see a myriad of colorful reef fishes, and on a cruise to Kisite Mpunguti Marine National Park you have very good chances to spend time with our resident bottlenose dolphins.
