Welcome to our beautiful island of Trawangan!
We are Lisa and Marco an Austro Italian couple, who decided in 2011, to make their dream come true and settle on this little piece of paradise.
If you are looking for a unique, cozy yet stylish island stay and want to get away from big anonymous resorts, this is the place for you.
Located in a tranquil part in the north of Gili T, surrounded by local warungs and a charming village, only 120 metres from the turquoise sea, we set up this stunning bungalow compound with 5 rooms only.
Our Frangipani Suite is located on the ground floor of our double Lumbungs and has a lovely garden view for a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere.
It is equipped with a super king size bed (2 x 2 metres), wardrobe, air condition,fan, safety box for your valuables, huge moroccan style bathroom with mosaic tiles and natural materials, a large terrace with teak wood furniture, where you will be served a delicious breakfast of your choice.
We will happily provide you with our own dining and sightseeing tipps, help you find a dive or yoga course, cooking class , onward transport or whatever you may be interested in.

Even though Marco and Lisa weren't around during our stay, we had contact previous to the arrival and we had a dear welcome by their staff who are very friendly.
I liked that it was not directly at the beach road in Gili T (maybe a minute walk away) and thus really quiet and relaxing with only birds singing in the beautiful garden. The apartment is really nice and tastefully decorated and enjoying the breakfast on the porch is a great start into the day.
We stayed in RC for 3 nights. Marco and Lisa weren't there, but they already prepared everything for us, and their 3 friendly staffs were there to help us with everything we need.
They have 3 options for breakfast menus, and they all are delicious.
The location is quite near to main street. The alley to RC was a bit muddy due to rainy season, but still ok. Their place was very clean and tidy.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in RC. Thank you Marco and Lisa.
Ruma Cahaya was great! Although we didn't meet Marco and Lisa, they sent us all the information on how to find the place beforehand in a very detailed email. The place was a bit off the main road so very quiet but still accessible to all the fun stuff. We had a great time on Gili T and will definitely return!
Me and my wife had an amazing stay at Marco and Lisa's Rumah Cahaya! This place is just too beautiful. The bungalows and garden in front is really what you wanna call, a tropical dream. At arrival they provided us with a self made map of the island with all restaurant and bar recommendations, which was indeed very useful as we were there for the first time. Rumah Cahaya is very centrally located, just about a 10 mins walk from the harbour and the most beautiful beach (where you can see turtles and a lot of other nice fish) is just a 2 min walk away. It's a perfect place to escape from all the hustle and bustle but also a 10 min walk to the main nightlife and bars. The staff girls CC Nani and Wati were wonderful hosts! They helped us with all the questions we had and had always time for a quick talk . The breakfast prepared from the girls was very tasty, you must try the caramelized banana pancake! We highly recommend this place to everyone who wants to stay somewhere quiet, traditional but not too far away from the center!!
We stayed in one of their Bungalows for four nights and liked it a lot. Aircon and fan are really useful as it was incredibly hot and humid. Everything was clean and breakfast basic but good and fresh! Their staff was lovely and helped us with all our questions. Also the map/guide they gave us at the check-in answered all the main questions. Location was also good as it is close to everything but far away from the party..so its pretty quiet. You hear the muzin 5 times a day which can be really loud but you have to deal with that probably everywhere on the island. It didn't bother us that much. We would definetly stay there again and recommend it!!
A cosy, simple room on the bottom of a two storey bungalow with a small verandah overlooking a garden. The location is great - you walk just a few hundred meters from the boat harbour and then about 100m off the main road. It's quiet at night but still close to the action. The welcoming staff helped with everything we needed like bike and snorkel hire. The room was comfortable with working AC and a safe but hot water is only available by leaving the shower running for 15 minutes. We did not need hot showers however. Breakfast was good and we really enjoyed our stay here.

We are an Austro(Lisa) Italian(Marco) couple living in Italy since 2002, working in seasonal jobs in the tourism industry.
When we are off, we are travelling the world , mostly asia, where you will find us in a lovely little guesthouse on the beautiful island of Trawangan, near Bali.
We love different cultures and hanging out with people from all over the world.
