This is a great place to come and relax for a few days and get away from the hassle of beach vendors, take organised trips to some of the best snorkelling in crystal clear waters or take your Padi open water diving course. Pick up is from our home for all excusions.
none as such, just respect our house and furniture and furnishings. No smoking in bedrooms.
We spent four nights there and we had a really nice time. Its a lovely place and the pictures are totally true.
Alec and Yanti did everything to make us happy.
And what to say about the breakfast?!
Its unbelievable! Best breakfast in Bali and you get a lot of it !!
Thanks for everything and if we come back to bali we will see us again !!
What an experience!! We were made welcome from start to finish, so welcome infact it felt like a home from home and like we were staying with friends or realitives.
Alec and yanti and their staff cannot do enough for you; from making sure you have everything you need, to giving you tips on how to experience singaraja and Lovina at its best, to driving you in and out of town and bringing me a hot honey and lemon drink for my sore throat!
The Accomodation is described and pictured accurately and it is so pretty and relaxing. it's also a short walk (5mins) to the local fishing beach, where you can go see dolphins. It's also a short car journey to Lovina beach (Alec or yanti are happy to drive you) I would reccomend sun loungers at spice, they're free and the food is excellent.
Yanti and Alec also arrange food when you just want to stay at home because you're having too much of a nice time you don't want to leave and yanti also offers an Indonesian buffet- this was amazing!! Best Indonesian food we've had during our amazing honeymoon to Bali. So nice we had it twice!!
Ok I'm running out of word allowance so one more suggestion from is, go on trios with Alec and Yanti's guide, Dodi. He is amazing, so much fun an so much local knowledge. We will remember our trips with Dodi for a lifetime.
So enjoy your stay, enjoy the delicious breakfast and dinners, enjoy the hospitality, beautiful surroundings and memorable activities! We're not jealous at all!!:-)
Lu lulu lulu Lovina, Lovina!
Together with our 8 months old son Jonas we spent 4 wonderful and peaceful days at Alecs and Yantis homestay.
Very clean room and bath, daily room Service if wanted, great pool and a nice chill out area. A kitchen to prepare own food is also available. The day started with an excellent breakfast you won't even expect in star Hotels.
Alec arranges everything you need (motorbike, tours, taxi, food at the homestay, etc.). The beach and restaurants at the beach are only a 10 min. walk through beautiful ricefields or few minutes by motorbike. Lovina can be reached by motorbike in 5 to 10 min, Same distance to Singaraja. The evenings we spent together by having a chat with Alec and Yanti with some beers, Arak or cold drinks, which are available in the griffe!!
Thanks a lot for having us, we really enjoyed our stay, especially Jonas who also felt home from the very first minute.
Die Bilder im Netz haben mit den Fotos überein gestummen. Wir haben die Adresse erhalten und einen Fahrer gebucht um dorthin zu gelangen. Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen und wurden super betreut von unseren Gastgebern. Alec & Yanti sind sehr hilfsbereit und immer für einem da - wir können die Unterkunft wärmstens weiterempfehlen!!
When I arrived on airport dohdi who had worked for lonely island and driver was wating for me. I took their car and went directly to Yanti and Alec's house that was little bit far and had some traffic jam on the road but he gave me a lot of information and make me fun.
After that i met them they were really welcome to me with welcoming juice and some meal.
After tht they show me their room that their room is so cozy for sleeping and taking a rest and they installed hot tub in bathroom.
And when i pick some tour for next day dohdi and Yanti and Alec helped me for picking. So i can pick really nice tour like snorkeling and hiking.
Snorkeling company have really good quality like guide and gear. I loved to do that again someday.
after that tour I ate some dinner and drank beer and arak that is one of traditional liquor in bali with Alec. We talked many things like situation of bali and alcohol. Lol. I liked that time. After that I used their swimming pool in the midnight with beer that is really clean and soo moody you should use that whenever you want.
In last day in their house i went to mountain for hiking and watching view with dohdi.
In that day the weather was not so good but after i found that waterfall make stunning view. I wish if you wanna staying this place i wanna recommend this tour. I took many picture that dohdi helped me for great picture.
And he took me hot spring and temple for doing full service for me.
I couldn't show my great experience in this page but if you pick this house you won't regret to your choice.
I hope you can get good memories in Yanti and Alec's house.
Enjoy your time in here. :)
Yanti is a lovely host! The apartment is clean, with A/C, directly in front of a pool and a very nice terrasse. The Breakfast was really delicious and we could get dinner for a little extra! Also we could buy drinks for a fair price!
The Apartment is located between "lovina" and singaraja, but Yanti helped us to get everywhere we wanted. Snorkeling and hiking tour was a little expensive (~35€/person) but it was really worth the money!
Thanks for comments and glad you had a good time and thought the snorkeling and hiking tours were worth the money. Everyone who has been on these tours as you can see from the reviews have also thought as you that they are great value and have seen so much more than the regular tourists ever see. Thanks again was a pleasure to host you
Very nice place if you want to relax. Yanti was a great host, she cooks very well her food was delicious. The bad part is that it is far from everything and there is not much to do in Lovina.
Lovina isn't a busy place and to many that is it's attraction. Apart from hiking to some of the most beautiful waterfalls in Bali and snorkelling at Menjangan Island in crystal clear waters or just relaxing I suppose could be "not much to do" for some. Thanks for your kind comments. All the best Yanti
