Rumah Gembira means Happy House in Indonesian, and that is how we want you to feel when you stay here. The rooms have been renovated to western standards of comfort and convenience, but the outside is delightfully Balinese in character.
The bedroom opens out onto a lush garden with an outdoor shower, fish pond and a shady spot to stretch out for a read or an afternoon nap. There is a kitchenette equipped with crockery,cutlery, frypan and saucepans. However it's only a few steps to an array of restaurants offering inexpensive and delicious meals.
It's a short stroll to the beach which offers swimming, watersports, and seaside dining. Shopping ,including Hardy's and the famed Bali Deli is around the corner. A taxi stand is at the end of the lane should you wish to travel further afield. Parking is available.
Interaction with Guests
As Rumah Gembira is in the family compound, I am readily available to answer your questions and assist with making your stay an enjoyable one.
Sanur village actively promotes it's own festivals and customs. Tourists are welcomed with wide smiles. Most shops and markets are still owned and operated by Balinese, unlike many other tourist areas. The shaded beach offers a long "boardwalk" with restaurants, bars, activities and shopping.
Bicycle hire is cheap and fun. Taxis are plentiful and cruise up and down Jalan Danau Tamblingan as well as waiting at a nearby corner. Or you can wave down one of the little green bemos for very little payment. Comfortable air conditioned vans are available for longer trips, usually at a fixed hourly rate. Reliable and friendly drivers are in our street!
Other Things to Note
Maid service is included in the tariff. She will come every second day unless you wish otherwise.
This property is the perfect location. Very close to the restaurants and shops of Sanur, while off the main road enough to remain peaceful and quiet. The hosts were so helpful and the communication was great. We extended another night because we loved the property and the location. Having a great property allowed us to really enjoy our time in Sanur. Thank you for sharing your place with us.
This place was quite beautiful and comfortable. It was located in a quiet residential section of Sanur but within walking distance to the main road and the beach. I was met at the airport by a driver who also showed me the place and left me the keys. I felt very relaxed at this place. Everything worked well - the air conditioning, the fans, the hot water, the stove, the refridgerator. The bed was very comfortable. The garden was lovely.
Perfect apartment in Sanur, only 2min away from one of the main shopping and restaurant road. Warm welcome and quiet zone. I would definitely recommend to everyone this apartment.
We really liked the Ida Aya Agung's place, we were greeted by the maid and got all the information we needed. The house was wonderful and we had a great time. The outside kitchen was very handy and equipped with everything you need to cook dinner.
Quick response to our last-minute request to book, friendly caretakers. Lovely, spacious room with outdoor kitchen, very private and secure. Just off the main road, and very close to restaurants etc. Great area. Thank you!
This was a lovely little guesthouse not far from the main street that runs through Sanur Beach. Convenient location, very clean, and very cool thanks to both fans and A/C! The only small issue was it was a little bit difficult to coordinate our arrival since our host was not in Bali (don't try to call her Australian number!), but luckily her neighbor let us in. Also note that there is no longer a pool as depicted in the photo gallery.
Loved it! Outdoor seating, 10 min walk to the beach, A/C. Wendy is very responsive to any and all requests and the staff on hand were very friendly. Location was very convenient to Jalan Tamblingan (coffee shops, restaurants, etc). The neighborhood was relatively quiet after 10 pm, which was wonderful.
