About this listing
Enjoy being pampered with Javanese hospitality in a cozy and peaceful surroundings. Each room comfortably sleeps two guests.
Though it states that there is only 1 bedroom there are actually 2 cozy & clean air conditioned rooms with own bathroom and hot & cold outdoor shower, a small tropical garden and pool. Breakfast is included. For a small charge other meals provided on request.
Wifi is available but no TV.
The house is brand new but a combination of village with mod cons, still unpainted on the outside but lovely inside and located in the middle of the rice paddies. Far from the hustle & bustle but yet close enough to the night life of Kuta or Seminyak, the beaches for day trips and sunset at Tanah Lot.
I used to have my own cafe while living in Australia since I love entertaining and taking care of people as well as cooking. So if you just feel like staying around the house by the pool and getting spoiled by me.. I'll try my best to make you feel as if Omahkoe is also your home away from home.
At the end of your trip..you will not only gain new experiences but a friend who has become your new family.
*Enjoyment can be found in the smallest simplicity that life has to offer*
During your stay the lounge room and kitchen is available for you to use.
Interaction with Guests
I will meet and greet my guest. I won't be in your away but always available to be of service and help make your stay as comfortable as possible. Breakfast will be prepared by me..
The rice paddy and green that surrounds the neighbourhood..very friendly locals. If you are up to it you can take a walk and see how the locals live and meet them.
I can organise taxis, car and motorbike rentals for your convenience.
Other Things to Note
To thank you for staying at Omahkoe I offer 1 complimentary meal, either lunch or dinner.
For those wanting to learn how to cook Homestyle Javanese cooking I offer cooking classes, the cost depends on either just cooking or with a trip to the traditional markets. Booking in advance is advisable..
Respect others as you want others to respect you. Since this is my private home please be respectful of my property.
Dotty made sure to communicate in detail so that we would know what to expect before we came.
The place was wonderful, pool was good. The helper was very nice too and made sure our stay was comfortable.
Villa is surrounded by farmlands, so it will be peaceful. You can cook or order food since there aren't restaurants within walking distance
Thank you Rachel and my apologies again for not being able to meet and greet you. Regarding the floor - it is mopped daily but I'm still having problems which floor cleaner is best to use on these ceramic tiles..since I do understand what you are talking about.
Staying at Ibu Dotty's house was just like staying in your mum's house. She takes good care of her guest (AND her house) personally. She make sure I got everything I need and her homemade meals were delicious. I was a solo traveler who was in a little getaway and looking for a quiet & peaceful place to stay but feel safe at the same time. Ibu Dotty's house was perfect. Well, the house itself was very nice (it's exactly like in the pictures), unique and clean (it was spotless!) and people in the neighborhood were friendly. Its located in the middle of rice paddies but easily accessible and also not too far from the main road. It was my first time staying in a B&B and my experience at Ibu Dotty's house was beyond my expectation.
Thank you so much Yulia for your kind words. I'm glad that I was able to make your stay to get away for a few days peaceful and comfortable. I wished I knew it was your birthday and I would have made it extra special for you.
All the best and I look forward to hosting you again.
Dotty's place was my first AirBnB experience and it was a great success. The house is lovely, there is only one other guest room (which was unoccupied when we were there). Dotty is an excellent cook and bent over backwards to be helpful . She provided a spare mattress for my 12-year old and had a scooter waiting for us the morning after we arrived.
Location-wise, Jalan Raya Tumbakbayuh is about 12-15 mins by moped from Echo Beach and placed nicely away from the tourist hubbub. Probably about 25-30 mins to Kerubokan. Wouldn't hestitate to recommend Omahkoe and Dotty's hospitality!
(I also suggest trying her cinnamon pancakes and soya chicken :)
About the Host, Ibu Dotty
I love entertaining and cooking...and now using this as a tool to earn an income in my twilight years.. With "old school style" Javanese & Balinese hospitality I would love to welcome you to Villa Omahkoe B&B..
The hospitality industry has been my hobby and interests since a very young age, where I used to watch my parents welcome and entertain guests from all around the world. It was a place that if you were stuck and needed a room, there would always be one ready at the family home.
My late Father was also the first Head of The Tourism Industry in the early 1960s before it became a Ministry of Tourism, he had a lot to do with developing Kuta and its surrounding area before anyone really knew about it.
So there was borne my love for entertaining, cooking and anything to do with this industry. After almost 40 years making Australia my home, I decided to come back to my birth country and set up home in Bali.
And here is where my dream became a reality...I look forward to welcoming you all to my humble Omahkoe and treat you with *old school* values.
