“Shella Dreaming”
Reviewed 28 August 2008

staying at the bahari house was great. you are right on shella beach and not too far walking of course from peponi and other great restraunts such as the new star guest house and restraunt. the bahari house staff is so friendly and willing to help you in taxi via dhow to lamu town and even bus excursions to mombasa. the food there was great. also the rooms are clean and i love that they leave flowers on the bed when you arrive. the experience was great this is my second time in lamu, shella beach. and i plan on staying at the bahari house. also during really high tide you can jump off the rooftop into the ocean. but only do if you are brave enough.

Reviewed 22 June 2005

This was a remarkably cheap place to stay compared with other places on the island. We managed to bargain for 2 nights with what money we had left and a pair of Armani jeans - don't think I'll ever pay for accomodation in this way again.

Room was very spacious and clean.

Staff were friendly. Views absolutely amazing.

If I came back to Lamu again I would definitely head back here - perfect for access to Shela beach.
