Other Things to Note

We have per dogs and cats that do bark but are very friendly.
CHANGING MONEY
Change money in places such as Circle K, (website hidden) and Mini Marts. Avoid changing money on the street as you will lose some of it and also avoid changing money in the big hotels as they will give you a poor rate.

SCOOTERS
Give a scooter a try! But take it slowly and be aware that rules are very different over here. If the police stop you expect to pay them a "fine" of 50.000 IDR. Keep 50.000 IDR in your pocket and hide the rest of your money out of their view to save an expensive day.

BARGAINING
Respect the local people and enjoy the barter process... Take it slowly and have a laugh with the shop owners. 10.000 IDR ($1) might be the difference between some people eating for that day or not so dont get too upset about being "ripped off" for a few dollars while shopping.

HYGIENE
The food service industry in Bali is of quite a high standard these days. If you feel the need, bring some hand gel but generally the old BALI BELLY is caused by too much drinking of Bintang & cocktails and eating too much rich, spicy food!!

BALI TIME
There is no time in Bali.. especially for holiday makers! Dont get too stressed out by drivers or food being a little late, everybody is normally trying their hardest. things such as bad traffic, small kitchens and short staffing can cause things

  • A stay at the kubu kauh beach inn is absolutly recommendable. The family is very helpful and kind. All your question about anything are answered with a well knowing of the whole area including surfing, food, travelling, touring and all the questions you have. They even invited us to have a typical balinesien dinner with them.
    Furthermore the accomodation nice and simple and a 3-5 min walk from the beach. We even extended our stay.
    Thank you so much, we'll be back!

  • Didn't actually get to meet Stephen, but everything booking through him was great! The room was exactly what I wanted, close to the beach but in a quiet enough neighborhood, and RIGHT down the street from the busier shopping/dining area! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling solo/on a budget!

  • Had a pleasant safe.The inn is jointly shared by the owners' family which made us feel safe.Beach is just 10mins away and central to the beach walk shopping arena. Very convenient to almost all possible amenities.

  • Our stay at Kubu Kauh was amazing!! Stephen, Daiduk and everyone was great.... We got a real taste of the Bali culture. It wouldn't have been such an amazing trip without them, they helped us arrange all of our trips to Ubud, and Gili. Def would stay again. The place is also very clean, and safe, super close to the beach.

  • The room was nice with air conditioning and a fan. Had a nice bathroom and great shower pressure. Friendly staff. Im glad we booked a transfer from the airport as it is very hard to find. Great location to shops and beach. Overall a very pleasant place to stay.

  • Stephen is the perfect host. He responds on time with detailed answers to questions we had within 24 hours. He is very flexible and helpful. We booked one night but end up staying 4. The inn is super clean and quiet. The inn owners live here with the guests and it feels really special to observe them go about their daily life from morning offerings and praying, bathing the babies and doing their laundry. Stephen can arrange airport pickup and daily excursion car rentals.

  • We thought of staying here only for the two first nights, but we liked this place and the people here really much and decided to stay for 14 days instead. It's pretty close to everything - the beach, the restaurants and other stuff. The hosts provide all necessary help - showing you the places you want to find, renting the bike, arranging surfing lessons, rafting and other activities. They have lots of friends, so you may get pretty good discounts, like 50% for some activities. The rooms are good enough - we didn't need much though. It is clean, the family always has some cold beer for you and they are really open for a chat.
    It is a really good and friendly place to stay

  • We stayed at Stephen's homestay.

    The family was very friendly.

    Rooms were clean.

    Fast Wifi

    Breakfast was nothing special but I guess it fills you up.

    Stephen was very friendly and gave me a lot of info.

    I would recommend it to anyone.
