Stayed in Lamu Old town for 3 nights and then onto Shella Royal House. My friend and I had been disapointed with Subira house, although the owner was quiet charming. Moving further down to Shella was a delight. We were met off our dhow and walked about 5 minutes through the narrow lanes to our base for the next 3 nights.
The Somali Pirate problems have put a lot of people off Lamu and so we had the entire quest house to ourselves. The staff were attentive but discreet and could not do enough for us.
The Chef made the most amazing swahili food for us and compared to a very pricey meal at Peponi's it was fresh seafood prepared simply with great salads and fresh fruit. Do hope he pirates off the coast do not spoil this amazing Island just off the Kenya coast.
