We never actually met Mark, but he checked in with us nearly every day we were there to see if there was anything we needed. We got the third floor room on the west side of the building so our evening hobby became sipping a couple Bintangs on the deck while watching the incredibly gorgeous Bali sunset. The bed was comfy and the room was clean and as described. For some reason we had a very weak WiFi signal inside our room, but if we took our phone/tablet outside it was perfectly fine. The banana toast and Bali coffee were a perfect way to start every day. We didn't have a moped, but it was a 30 minute walk to Echo Beach, which was just fine for us. Bapak Made and his wife were excellent hosts and tended to anything we needed. On the day we left, our driver couldn't find the place even though it's on the main road of Canggu. He kept calling, but didn't speak English and my Indonesian is pretty much non existent. Bapak Made noticed we'd been waiting outside for a while and offered to talk to the driver for us the next time he called and we were on our way within 15 minutes.
Canggu can be a little remote, and even though we really enjoyed our time there, our exploration was a little limited by the fact we don't know how to ride mopeds. We took cabs everywhere, which can get a bit pricey, but we knew that going in. It's something to consider when staying out here, but know that the area is beautiful and if you do know how to ride a moped, Mark and/or Bapak Made will get you set up with a local rental at a great rate.
This was a great homestay and an awesome value. Highly recommended!
There are also bicycles for rent!
And though echo beach could be a 30 minute walk, our favorite beach
Batu bolong / Old Mans Beach is 10 minute walk straight down the road
While great eateries and cafes as well as Deus Ex Machina entertainment/shop /restaurant is a 5 min walk ;-)
We had a very, very nice stay here. Mark was really helpful and gave us very good tips on where to eat and anything we needed. The couple who owns the place is absolutely lovable. The bedroom is spacious, clean and confy, and the banana toast for breakfast was a really nice way to start the day. The wifi is maybe better on the 2nd floor, but the views from the 3rd floor are great. If we ever come back to Canggu, we'll definitely come back here!
Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber, groß und neu möbliert. Super Matratze! Das balinesische Gastgeber-Paar war sehr sehr herzlich, aufmerksam und nett. auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert!
Mark is the best host I could wish! At first there was this good communication before I got here. But when I got here, I was ill.
He came to see me. Brought me to a restaurant for some food. Orderd a meal for the evening. Kept in touch till I felt beter.
And then he became a perfect guide. Told a lot about Bali and where to go too. Aswell as about the people here, there habits an the culture. With a lot of praktical advice.
After this he even turnt out to be a great surf teacher! Hos lessona were private, serious and patience. You can plan a private lesson with him for the normal, local price. It gave me the result I wished for, and more.
This the best place I could wish homestay aswell! Really friendly people who are giving you the feeling that it is home. The rooms are clean, the shower is good and there are a lot other creative, friendly and also surfing people to hang around, if you want too.
I even stay for a month.
Pros: price, place, big cleen room, balcony, fast online communication, etc. I recommend rooms on 2-d flat. One on the right side provide the great view to the rice terrace on.
- cock behind the wall. Which is not silent. But not too loud ;)
- water in bathroom... It's either too hot, either too cold. Very hard to regulate.
- service is... Strange. They are really willing to help but...
--- for example, if you want to have breakfast (which is free), you have to find someone. And that's the real quest). You can't call somewhere, push some button... You can't even tell in the evening "I want breakfast at 10.00" (well, you can, but it does not work)
--- don't use their laundry... I've asked to clean my pants. Got them 4 days later with new hole and new color...
Maybe have to remind you that you were staying in a Balinese homestay and not a 4 star hotel.. The relaxt style of Bali life and service without buttons to push is more our way..
And to clarify , we dont have a laundry..
It was very unfortunate what happened in the external laundry which we used upon your request..
I had a great stay at my room in canggu. Everything was clean, comfortable and very calm. On my first day Mark showed me all the good restaurants, where to surf and where to rent a surfboard and we even went surfing togehther. On christmas eve, he invited me to have dinner with him and his family. I totally recommend that place and will definitely come back again!
