Other Things to Note

We are flexible on check-in times. However, if there's another party checking in on the same day you depart, or checking out on the same day your arrive, the check-in and out times are as follow:
Check-Out time: 12 PM

The 1 rule is: Please do not smoke inside the house. We have ash trays in the patio and we would be most grateful if guests will abide by this.
We are 2 brothers who live in different continents growing up (US and Australia), and we decided to move to Bali together in late 2012. Right now, we decide to see a bit of the world together, so while we are traipsing the world, we are renting out our house in Bali. As the adage goes, a friend in need is a friend indeed, and we count ourselves blessed and lucky to have our friend, Sarah, who would be helping us checking-in/out guests while we are not in Bali. Sarah speaks Indonesian, English, and Italian!
Any information left out or something else you would like to know about? Please feel free to ask and we'll happily get back to you as soon as we can!
The only rule that we have is that our guests do not smoke inside the house.
Super séjour!!! Appartement très bien situé a proximité de la plage, des restaurants, et autres commerces. L'appartement est propre, spacieux avec toutes les commodités vous permettant de passer un agréable séjours.
My boyfriend and I visited Bali and stayed at Hendro's 1 bedroom apartment for about 5 days. We felt that the room was accurately depicted in the photos and it was cleaned each day while we were out exploring Bali. I really enjoyed being able to have transportation arranged through Sarah (host's friend) and for airport pickup. We did have a little trouble with getting hot water, but was later informed that it had to be adjusted towards the middle rather than left or right. Minor, but it was definitely a cold shower the first night. We also had a little trouble with the wifi being slow unless we were outside or in the kitchen area. The place itself was wonderful and perfect for our stay. The only thing that could maybe be improved was the communication. At first, I was discussing arrangements with Hendro, then his brother, then over to a host friend, so it was a little inconsistent as far as communication. But this is understandable as it sounds like they are busy people. Hendro did inform us that he comes and goes between Bali and other places. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience and we would love to come to Bali again!
FANTASTIC SERVICE. CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE ROOM. EVERYTHING WORKS AS IT SHOULD. HENDRO AND SARA MADE THE WHOLE PROCESS SMOOTH AND TROUBLE FREE.
DIGITAL NOMADS BEWARE:
I'd like to start by indicating that I am going to partition my review so as to be fair.
First, Sarah and Hendro are very good hosts. They answer calls promptly and are quick to respond to any and all concerns.
The place is in a good location of Kuta (although I don't like Kuta) if Kuta is where you want to be. It is also away from the street which makes it very quite.
The place is clean and there is a cleaning woman who is very nice who does a great job.
However, as I digital nomad the most important aspect of any Airbnb rental is decent internet. That said, the internet speed here is absolutely garbage.
If you are in need of a decent internet speed I would strongly advise you to look elsewhere. To be fair most of the internet in Bali isn't very good compared to other places in Southeast Asia. However, there are other places with much better internet connection (website hidden);DR - Don't stay if you need a decent internet connection for work. Otherwise, its a quite, clean, comfortable place in Kuta if that is your thing.
Thank you for your review. However, as the reviews are viewed by public, I do need to clarify a few things because everyone who travels nowadays need internet access one way or another and this explanation is to allay their fears from booking our place.
I am sorry that the internet doesn't work to the speed that you require for your work, but to say that the speed is garbage is an overstatement. We provide wifi for each apartment and there's no sharing of bandwidth among the apartments because we were worried that if everyone logs on, then the bandwidth will not be enough. When you raised the issue about the internet speed, Sarah went to the apartment to show you that there's bandwidth quota left during your stay. Most of our guests who stay require internet access to book rooms or flights for their next destinations and they all do it from the apartment without any issue.
The wifi speed is good for browsing, email, and voice over IP. We have web developers staying all the time and they never have issues pushing / pulling code from Github and Heroku. However, the wifi speed will not be fast enough if you need to do heavy duty downloading like downloading movie or streaming movies online. Short clips of movies on the most popular video sharing platform is OK though (and I believe Sarah showed this to you on her tablet as well to show that the internet works at the apartment).
The apt is very good , also location !! I won't forget to trip in Bali (this second time).
Thank you Hendro ^_^
Thank you Wanto ^_^ .Even though, i didn't have chance to meet you both but i and my friend are deeply touched by your sincerity !! Especially , Sarah ! Who is amazing , i really do respect for her job , She's very helpful , patience anytime . Thank you Sarah!! ^_^
The housekeeping was great too , yea!!... we love Carle' (sorry , i dunno how to spell her name ) she is hard -working , responsible !!!!!!
Many thanks we want to say...
We love Bali , respect this island , ppl .......everything .
I learned very muchhhhh from Bali . Terimakasiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiih !!!!!!!!!!
The apartment looked almost exactly like the pictures and we were very happy to stay with Hendro for our 3d2n in Kuta. The room was very clean and even had flowers around the room/bathroom to welcome us, towels also provided. The apartment felt very homely from the start and we were extremely comfortable during our stay. The hosts were friendly and helpful (e.g. providing a whole excel sheet of attractions in Bali before our arrival, giving us a map of Kuta/Seminyak area and advising estimated “fair” rates for activities we wanted to try so we would be able to bargain with locals) and Sarah was always available via whatsapp for our questions and easy communication. The apartment was cleaned daily by a very friendly cleaning lady and we were more than happy to have the kitchen at our disposal for the late night cup noodle cravings.
The area that the apartment was in seemed ok in terms of safety, horrible traffic along the one way road but was not a problem for us as we would walk to the beach in 10-15mins and abt 10mins to the main road for a taxi to Seminyak or South Kuta. There was a minimart (like 7-11) just outside the apartment and local nasi campur open 24/7. Also, very close to several money changers and massage places nearby as well.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in the apartment (felt like home) and it is definitely worth the value for money.
I would like to say big thanks to Hendro and Sarah for being their guest for more then two weeks. Their hospitality is outstanding, and they really did everything so that we feel ourselves like at home and love every minute spent in Bali!
The room: as for me I liked it very much: cool with air con, quite much space, kitchen with all necessary thing to cook your breakfast, lunch and dinner. All devices worked well and there is nothing to complain about. Everything was very clean!
Location: it is just perfect! Warung Malang with my favourite food in Kuta for 2-4 dollars in max 10 minutes walking distance.
K market 30 seconds walking distance.
Legian - 10 minutes walking distance.
And the place is really quite! Like oasis :)
Bonuses: there was complimentary tea, coffee bags when we came, also drinking water was always available in our kitchen from big bottles which were changed free of charge once finished.
Hosts could help with the laundry without making any profit on this add on sales!
Sarah knows plenty of information and shortcuts of Bali and it was very nice and interesting to talk with her about Balinese culture when we meet each other occasionally.
We were able to contact Sarah any time and get answers immediately.
So I would like to thank Sarah and Hendro for the unforgettable stay in these apartments. As for me - when I am next time on Bali I definitely will come to Sarah and Hendro Appartments!
Same I recommend to you!
