Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Die "Sugar Shack" von Brenda war ein absoluter Glücksgriff. Das Haus ist erheblich größer als auf den Fotos erkennbar ist und absolut toll designed. Es stand uns immer ein Fahrer zur Verfügung, der uns für wenig Geld über die Insel gefahren hat. Das Haus war gemütlich, sauber und bot Wohlfühlatmosphäre - absolut zu empfehlen!
    Lediglich auf Wifi muss man verzichten und das heisse Wasser funktioniert nicht immer einwandfrei.

  • We enjoyed our stay at sugar shack a lot! With our two little children, 5 years and 11 month, it was the right place at the end of our holidays. Much space, lightfull and welldesigned rooms and the sound of the waves all the time. A place to feel at home!

  • I stayed at David and Brenda's house known as «SugarShack» or just simply «white house» in Candidasa with my wife and two kids (4 and 1,5 years old).

    The house really stands out among other houses of the compound known as Lilaberata. It is beautiful in terms of architecture and interior with huge sliding glass walls at both floors, especially the balcony. The view from it is very nice but i wouldn't call it absolute, because it is a little bit cluttered with palms and other vegetation as well as nearest house roofs. This is because the house is not inline with other houses but stands back a little and has a small yard before it, that was very pleasant for our kids to play at.

    The house is not new and in need of some restoration and simple fixing — the door on the second floor leading to the stairs down was broken so we had to cover the doorway with a chair so our smallest kid won't reach the stairs. The most thing we missed at the kitchen was a blender so we coulndn't make our own juices.
    Also the staff person that was cleaning the house did that no everyday but only every second day and was not reachable by the phone when we needed new water bottle changed in the cooler.

    Overall we liked our stay at this house. It is nicely located with restaurants and minimarts within minutes reach. Just note that the food and drinks selection in minimarts is scarce and for a supermarket you have to go to a nearest big city (15km).

    But the best thing about this house is that there is a small patch of sand/beach at the left side of the compound (100 meters from the house). It was almost like a private beach, the water was clean and no big waves when in low tide. In high tide this beach was almost all covered by waves but you could still use it. So this was nice because there are no beaches in Candidasa, just several small corners of sand like ours and the fabled «white sand beach» that is rather far away. Also when the ocean was not welcome we went for a swim to a Candidasa lagoon — spring water lotus pond 5 min walk from the house.

    There might be a lot of cheaper accomodations in the area, but this house really stands out so i would definitely recommend it to anyone going to Candidasa for a nice view and small but pleasant beach.

  • You know how you always have a vision of the perfect beach house? This is it. Book it. I still have fond memories of this place; centrally located, with some of the most beautiful views I've ever seen, close to wonderful restaurants.. it's just an absolute gem. My only regret is that I didn't book longer.

    Thank you for a wonderful stay!

  • A great spot for anyone staying in Candidasa. Close to restaurants, 20 min drive to the white sand beach, and conveniently located in town. The house is beautiful, with a great view of the ocean. We loved the unique decorating and spacious rooms!

  • We stayed at the Sugar Shack from February 15th to the 19th, 2014. What a wonderful home David & Brenda have put together!! The decor is awesome....the location is even better....and the oceanfront is to die for!!! Absolutely loveddddd the master bedroom! Staff are immaculate and super friendly!! Its so close to everything....all is within walking distance. The house was very well maintained and spotless! The only thing its missing for techies like us is wifi....BUT the lovely restaurant directly across the street had great wifi and the girls that work there are soooo sweet! Candidasa is a lovely spot, we enjoyed touring around after being in Amed our first 2 weeks. I would highly recommend this house and will definitely book it again next year! Thank you for a lovely stay!!!!

  • We head a very pleasant stay in Candidasa. The place was clean and with the big windows you have an excellent view on the ocean. Allthough Candidasa itself s a little bit dull, it'(email hidden) to start trips from. The mainroad is a noisy one, but you won't notice this as soon as you're in the garden.

  • Excellent house with amazing view from the second floor makes you feeling yourself like in paradise every morning you wake up. The house is equipped with all you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The house is ideally located with good proximity to many restaurants and grocery stores. The only disadvantage is wifi unavailability, but this is really a minor thing when you are on vacation.

  • This is my dream house. i could sit in front of the view from the living room, balcony, bed all day and gaze on the infinite patterns of sky and sea. It is light and airy, tasteful furnished and decorated. The tub is deep. the hot water is now continuous and on demand.
    You are one minute from the main road with its noise and traffic and restaurants and clubs. When you come home there is just the sound of the surf. the neighbors are lovely and helpful.
    The only thing missing is WIFI. It's not fun to have to leave paradise and go into the chaos to connect home
    I will remember it forever.

David, my husband was a set designer and furniture designer for the movie industry in Los Angeles for thirty years and worked with the tops in the industry....Steven Spielberg, Jodie Foster, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen and many more. His built the Captains Chair for Star Trek Insurrection and had the most "ordered" bed in TV history from the TV hit, "Mad about You". He designed furniture for many top Restaurants in Los Angeles from the Saddle Peak Lodge in Malibu to Malibu Adobe with Ali McGraw. His resume is extensive and his client list is long....Billy Crystal, David Hasselhof, Arnold Schwarzanegger to Keenan Wayans. He has translated that skill into building ten amazingly different houses since he's come to Bali. Our house is amazing and you will see why he is so in demand! I have a variety of interests that keep me busy. I was a hairdresser for 30 years in the US and clients still find me, even in Bali. I love doing hair and spending quality time with people. I have spent years doing spiritual growth work and now work with others with addiction and codependency issues and also do Money Coaching. I love this work and the chance to give back what I was taught. I've been an artist my whole life so our home is filled with original art ( mine and others) and I have an awesome studio..Anyone that loves to paint will fall in love here. My latest passion is teaching Zumba, What a blast! As you can see, we are both loving our life and filling the hours manifesting our dreams. We both are creative artists and love to explore the world and the people in it. Since we've been in Bali we've been taking in South East Asia. We love Vietnam, and Thailand for their amazing cuisine. We are frequently traveling, so we are sorry that we don't get to meet all our guests, but we leave you in the hands of an amazing staff and manager, Sakming, who will be your contact person.
