Mnarani House is located just behind Peponi House in Lamu, in the same neighbourhood as the houses owned by the Monaco and Austrian Royal families sits another family home.

Chris and Margarita Hawley are the original owners and designed and built Mnarani House, (with the help of Sidiki of Baitil Aman Guest House). The plot was bought in 1989 and building started at about the same time as Jasmine House, to be completed in August 1990. The doors and windows are all original Swahili antiques which the family bought on a trip to Pate and other neighbouring islands during the building of the house.

Over the years the rest of the Hawley family (now grown ups!) have added to Manarani House, further improvements to floors, kitchen and a rooftop sitting area as well as solar hot water for showers. The current Mnarani staff are Lucas (cook), who has been at Mnarani now for about 10 years, and Esther (house keeper) who has recently joined the team.

Mnarani House Sleeps 6-8 people. 'Mnarani' means 'near the minaret' in Kiswahili and the house is situated near to the Friday Mosque, just a couple of minutes from Shela Beach. From Manari house, you get very good views of the sea from the first and second floors. There are three double bedrooms ensuite upstairs, one small double ensuite on the ground floor and one 'open' single room without bathroom upstairs. All bedrooms in  this house have fans and mosquito nets.
