Interaction with Guests
We invite you to join the table at breakfast time (7:30 - 9 am). If you prefer to have your breakfast later you'll find it in the fridge with your name on it. Do tell us what kind of breakfast you like.
Just over 100m to a surf beach that is popular wiith locals on Sundays, attracting a range of snack vendors, the neighborhood is relatively quiet and peaceful during the week, yet close enough to walk to Sanur, and easily access most parts of Bali via the Ngurah Rai and Ida Bagus Mantra Bypass roads. We can arrange driver with a car or rental motorbike, or bicycles with prior warning.
The ocean-side pathway (ideal for walking or cycling) connects south all the way through Sanur to Blanjong, and north to the Ayung rivermouth temple. Otherwise it's more practical to get around by car or motorbike (rental available, we can help arrange) as our access road connects to the Ngurah Rai Bypass - 2km to Sanur, 6km to Denpasar, 25km to Ubud. The airport can be reached in 15 to 30 minutes with the new toll road. If you land before 8PM, you can catch the Sarbagita bus from the airport to our neighbourhood. Best you hop off at the bus stop AFTER the Sanur KFC traffic lights. We are happy to pick you up there (but you'll need to phone us when you get there).
Guests are expected to keep noise levels low for other residents. First-time guests are expected to arrive during daylight hours unless having arranged to meet or be picked up at the Sanur KFC / Airport. Once settled in, guests are to help ensure the beach and pool gates are latched.
Place is good for short stay with minimal stuff and is cozy enough for 2 people. Its not great for special vacation and bit pricey as well. The road to reach the place is scary enough and is not walk-able after 6 p.m. We need to use the motorcycle to commute anywhere into Sanur except for beach.
My stay with Kadek & his family was exceptional. My flight didn't get in to Bali until late in the night, but with his help I had a driver arranged and a night watchman was waiting for me to let me in the property immediately when I got there.
While breakfast is included, his family also provides the option to eat lunch and dinner with them for a very low price. The food was great and the company was even better. For an authentic Bali experience I would definitely recommend this property. I only stayed for a few days, but I mentioned it was my birthday on the day I left and they even gave me a little birthday gift.
The property is absolutely beautiful as you can see the ocean and watch kites dance across the sky from the sitting areas. I stayed in the attic and found the bed comfortable and the room perfect for a single traveler.
Will be back if I return to Bali!
We didn't get to meet Kadek, he was out of the country, but I got to meet his lovely family that helped us with everything we needed and made us feel comfortable. When they were not there there was always someone else to help.
The room is as beautiful as in the pictures and so is the rest of the place, great view and gorgeous swimming pool.
We were supposed to stay one night but when we saw the place we booked one more immediatly :-)
We didn't get to meet Kadek but we met his super friendly family that made us feel at home.
The room is like in the photos, can be warm but the fan helps during the night. The bathroom is shared, a beautiful outdoors bathroom and always clean.
The swimming pool is amazing and a good way to refresh after a day walking around Sanur.
The beach is just behind the house, you can walk there but at night i would recommend coming by the main street with a taxi-make sure you read the directions most of the drivers didn't know how to find it.
Thank you again for your hospitality, Sarita, and for making us feel at home.
Kadek and his mum are wonderful. Great place and as described in the listing. Nothing but the best here.
Cadre calme, magnifique et chaleureux qui nous a permis de nous remettre doucement du décalage horaire lors de notre arrivée à Bali et de planifier la suite.
La propriété se situe loin de l'agitation de Denpasar ou Kuta. Les voisins sont quelques locaux, les champs, 3-4 vaches et la plage... cadre très reposant du coup... En longeant la plage, on rejoind Sanur en 15 min. à pieds pour prendre un taxi, un bus ou juste pour se promener.
La chambre est très jolie, de même que la salle d'eau extérieure où la végétation se développe à sa guise.
L'hôte est vraiment adorable, simple et aimant prendre et profiter du temps.
Le petit-déjeuné est très bien et nous a permis de découvrir certains fruits délicieux de leur jardin.
Si nous devions retourner à Bali, pour sûr, au début du voyage, nous irions chez eux.

About the Host, Kadek
Born and raised in Bali until graduating from highschool, I pursued tertiary education in New Zealand and Canada. I'm now living in Bali where I manage my grandfather's homestay. This AirBnB account is created mostly to help my mum (born in NZ, has lived in Bali for over 40 years) get guests for her BnB.
