About Bembea House

Bembea House is situated on the edge of the picturesque fishermen’s village of Shela, alongside the dunes that fringe the long stretch of Shela Beach. Located only a few steps from the famous Peponi Hotel, Bembea House offers a holiday that brings you into close touch with Africa, where you can have a unique experience of this very special island.

The house sleeps two to four people in two double bedrooms. The rooms are furnished with four-poster beds, mosquito nets, ceiling fans and dressing tables. The en-suite bathrooms have hot water showers. On the ground floor, there is an additional third bedroom. The third floor has a spacious dining area and an adjacent living room. Here you can relax on cosy couches and use the music station while browsing the library. Please bring along your iPod and you will fully enjoy this luxurious house.

The entrance hall, decorated with seashells in the beautiful niches, has three large stone benches ideal for sitting and relaxing. The staircase leads to the fully equipped kitchen with taps that provide purified water which is sanitized for drinking and cooking. The kitchen has a dining area where your friends and family can sit and dine. Through the kitchen windows you can gaze at the birds in the palm trees and enjoy the view of the sand dunes.

Lastly, we have a magnificent rooftop with a panoramic view of the Indian Ocean and village. While relaxing in the baraza lounging area or sunbathing on the comfortable sunbeds, you can feel the cool breeze from the dunes. It is a fantastic place to watch the moon rise.

The four-storey house reflects the fascinating charm of traditional Swahili architecture mixed with eclectic furnishing and a personal touch of the finest style and comfort. Our staff is very committed and always willing to please the guests.

Beach: We are located right on the beachfront.
