Michiel is a nice surfer dude, calm and relaxed. However, that doesn't help us, his tenants. The lower floor apartment is dirty (bathtub was sticky and had leftovers from previous guests), the apartment on its own smells of mold, is really humid and unpleasant to sleep at. The windows are big which is nice to let the light in, but you can't open them as tons of mosquitoes come in. The kitchen is ok but if you are not accustomed to bugs coming out of the small crevices, you'll be freaking out most of the time. The outdoor shower is not for use as it belongs to the upper apartment. And, after I have seen that I can get a normal hotel with A/C, pool, clean sheets smelling properly, and a normal breakfast, for the same price, I informed Michiel that I will leave. He contacted me next day just to say he was away for his birthday and has not even offered to refund half. I would not recommend it to anyone.
My stay was very minimalistic, it's nice for a solo traveler, and from our conversation (mine and micheals), great for surfers. I took time here mostly relaxing on the front porch, the garden is gorgeous. A lot of things don't bother me when I'm staying somewhere on a budget. No or little hot water is common in bali and in the island, there was some here. The wifi works very well which is a plus because I had homework to do. No ac but with the fan and windows opened at night it's not bothersome. You get a little big of neighboring noise and prayer calls or music from the local market but it didn't bother me. If you have any questions or concerns Micheal is very helpful and quick to respond and knowledgable about the area, environment and culture.
Michael made us most welcome and provided us with an excellent driver which enabled us to see the explore parts of the island. The photo on the website could do with updating and the concrete wall at the bottom of the garden means that we did not have a sea view.
Michiel was great on arrival from airport to his place. Showed some places to go. The house is split into 3x areas. The top floor is good as you see water. We got the bottom floor which was damp, dark, lots of mosquitoes. We left early
Michiel is nice guy, pick me up at the airport. the house is close to the beach, black sand beach. and I can hear the sound of wave, birds, feel peaceful. close to a convenient store. nice place to relax, but had mosquito problem at night.
As I live in Ubud I was checking for a nice place to enjoy the seaside of Lebih beach because not so far for driving. When arriving Michiel picked me up, introduced me to everything and we had an informative chat about internet connections in Bali. My experience of staying in this house was quite coloured by different aspects. First of all in the garden around the house many high palm trees make the inside quite dark, but gives good shadow when taking a pause on the veranda. The beachfront location is showing two high walls that separate the garden from the beach. Access is by walking along the very busy and loud Bypass behind the house.
What was disturbing me the most was the appartment was very stinky because of the kitchen (very dark in the evening) and the bathroom water runoffs. Closing the doors to the sleeping room was helping a bit. The other objection I have is that the bed had no fresh sheets, only a decorative sheet on the mattress and a quilt without changeable cover which had been already used before, and the pillow covers also had not been changed after prior use.
I would have told all this to Michiel who is managing the renting of this house but he never showed up, even in the morning where I had to leave at 9.30 am being informed by an sms of him the evening before.
I will furtheron enjoy the beach where you mostly meet very friendly local people, the many excellent fish warungs and the huge public swimming pool with a deep water pool for good swimming.
Also my dog enjoyed the beach very much and I hope he did not cause any trouble when barking when people coming along in the night who rented the room upstairs (we didn't know of each other that there are other guests) or from visiting the small dog in the cage placed on an outside veranda. He likes to play with other dogs.
Hopefully my review is replacing a missing conversation with Michiel, because also asking via sms if I left everything okay was not answered.
We had a wonderful stay in the apartment. Even with our 20months old daughter it was no problem. Michelle cared about everything we asked him for. The surrounding could be expressed as very local and offers very good local food.
Thanks for the nice stay
