Interaction with Guests
Please let us know about the time of arrival as we are usually open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., so if you are coming before or after that time we must arrange for someone to wait for you. You can either call us or send a message on airbnb or Facebook page Mama Tom Tom's (website hidden).
The contact person during your stay will be John, who works on the first floor and can be also reached at local numbers (phone number hidden).
You can call him before getting to Bingin to help you carry the luggage down the Bingin stairs to the beach and the house (the usual tip is $5).
Also, he can organize a transport for you or a tourist tour, rent a bike, surfing or snorkelling equipment.
Additionally, for any other issues and if John or Mama Tom Tom cannot help you at the moment, you can write us on airbnb or at the given contact phone numbers.
We are 30 to 40 minutes from Kuta but in a secluded quiet beach area. There is no street noise as we are at the bottom of the Bingin cliff.
The house and the beach is reached by coming down a flight of stairs. It takes some 5 to 10 minutes to come down - it is not so difficult, but we advise first time visitors to walk slowly and cautiously and to have a torch during night.
This does mean that there are many stairs but it is worth it to just have the sound of the waves rather than the noise of traffic.
If you need the transportation, we can organize a driver to pick you up (e.g. from the airport the price is 250.000 Indonesian rupiahs - around USD 19). The price is different for the night ride. Let us know if you need it or call us for further instructions.
Also, we can organize tourist tours, private
The Bingin beach has two parking spots - you should come to the one close to Temple lodge (the yoga resort). Once in Bingin, you can also ask the driver or people in Bingin to give you directions.
If coming by car, tell the driver to leave you at Temple lodge and from there, take the stairs down to the beach. Mama Tom Tom's Warung is one of the last houses on the left on the beach.
If coming by bike, you can park next to the little supermarket some 10 meters before Temple Lodge (the daily parking is paid 5000 rupiahs=0.38 USD)
Other Things to Note
- The room can fit 2 adults comfortably.
- There is a good wifi connection (ask John for the password)
- We don't accept credit cards, you can only pay in cash (and that applies for the entire Bingin and most of Bali). The closest ATM is some 10 min ride by bike, so we advise you to have cash with you as it will save you a lot of trouble. Also, many shops, supermarkets and pharmacies are above the cliff some 10 mins or more by bike (as this part of Bali is more secluded), so better make a stock of everything that you need before coming to Bingin
- The beach is a place for surfing and swimming, but because of the reef it's advisable to have booties/shoes for walking in the water (especially during the low tide)
- You can sometimes see monkeys on the terrace or around the house and everywhere in Bingin, so take care of your stuff (don't leave it outside when you are not there). In case you see the monkeys, there is a stick you can use to chase them away, or use water. They are generally not dangerous if you don't approach them (as they are mainly looking for the food).
- Please use electricity and water consciously, bearing in mind that in this part of the island there is a scarcity of it. The water is bought as the island is in big need of it. When you are not in the room or do not need electricity, AC or lights on, please switch them off. Bingin will be thankful.
- Smoking is only forbidden in the rooms.
- We kindly ask you to wash the sand off your feet before coming into the house.
