Xmas Accommodations

My parents are coming to visit Africa in December and I'm searching for a reasonably priced place to stay in Shela in the first few weeks of December. I've seen Yumbe House mentioned, any other suggestions? Is it best to arrive in December with reservations, or take our chances with the "guides?"

Yumbe House is in Lamu Town.

I havenít stayed in Shela, but I think the following could be reasonably priced places to stay:

Bahari Guest House tel: 042 32046 (Bradt Guide from 2004)

Itís difficult to find out how to book directly with other guesthouses, but Lamu Homes is the agent for some, like Stopover Guest House and Pwani Guest House, and you could also rent houses through them:

In Lamu Town there are more places.

I donít know if you have to book in advance for the first weeks in December, but I suspect that for Christmas itís necessary.
