A great little studio apartment in the heart of Kuta. For your independent stay this is all you need to enjoy your special time in this vibrant neighbourhood. CableTV, DVD player, big fridge and cooking facilities. Just a stroll to the beach. WIFI?

The Space

This delightful studio is big on features without big costs. Central in Poppies 1 with shopping and beaches a few minutes stroll. Vibrant markets, bars, restaurants and food stalls plus free wifi steps away.
Kitchenette, super king bed, gated veranda, satellite tv, DVD, a fantastic apartment and location. Currently our guests have access to the lovely resort pool next door.

Sumptuous SuperKing bed plus optional (website hidden) stools and table may be used inside or on the verandah. A widescreen wall TV has many satellite channels and a DVD player is provided. A personal electronic safe is provided plus bedside reading lights.The kitchenette has gas hobs, toaster, electric kettle and all utensils necessary for a home cooked meal. The housekeeper will come and change linen weekly or by arrangement. We have tried to think of everything to make your stay comfortable and pleasing.
This is Poppies and its often busy in the evenings so if you enjoy the vibrancy ... Welcome

This is a true little home away from home.
As often as our guests require, or as arranged, our trusted housekeeper/manager is happy to assist.

Such a vibrant neighbourhood, central to everything which is KUTA. Great live entertainment, always something happening. Newly renovated neighbourhood and close to Kuta Town Houses, Secret Garden, market stalls and restaurants. Right in the heart of Poppies, Kuta with the beach a few minutes stroll down the lane. There are many trusted money changers in the area and the ubiquitous Bali 'too good to be true' types as well. We are happy to offer any advice asked for.

There is seldom a need for transport here however to go further afield, taxis cruise the streets, motorbike rentals abound and there is always someone offering "transport"?

We've done our homework here and believe this is a great little price for a great little studio apartment. The AirCon is new and efficient as is the instant shower water heater, bed and Is there nearby public transit?
What makes your place unique?
��widescreen tv. Too many facilities to mention but we welcome your enquiry.

  • The place was nice, in a good location and the people around are lovely! I really enjoyed where it was. locals will park their bikes out the front of the room, it is very loud in the morning time and also at night if you want to sleep early good luck! band plays very loud late into the night! The room was a little unclean when I arrived but good for Bali standards. The shower doesn't really work and also the toilet! Make sure that you check that the bed isn't broken when you arrive otherwise they will charge you for it an write nasty comments about you on this site! Also anything else in the room! They will blame you for anything! Also directions to the place bad for night time. For future reference it is behind the ap apartments near Kuta town house! I am very disappointed by my interactions with the owner, and being accused of things that are untrue in public. They also will not reply to emails regarding items left behind. I would recommend the room but make sure you write down every single thing in the room before you stay there and call them to let them know! Also you will not be allowed to have friends visit! And be careful of very rude next door neighbour who doesn't like Indonesians! Oh all the items for cooking with or eating where very dirty upon arrival and also when there for over a week they did not come change the sheets! Oh bathroom set up badly dirty. But if you are like me and just want a room it is fine but for the price you can get somewhere much better!

    Response from Karen:

    Laura's recent review is completely at odds with her email to us saying how much she enjoyed her stay and wanted to come back again. This is the only unpleasant experience we have had with our guests and we regret the entire episode.
    All guests have both our personal contact plus our managers contact details. We take a pride in offering a really nice clean studio apartment and hope this guest review can be seen in the context of someone who has entertained friends in a property that was unsuitable to her wants.

  • I looked on other websites such as (website hidden) but Karen's listing on Airbnb attracted me because of the location. I had a wonderful stay. You are able to walk to the beach, (15 mins) and Poppies lane with a great choice of tour operators, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs. Karen has shown tlc with her studio by providing a kettle, coffee supplies, dvd player.

    The nearby pool is usually quiet and there is a handy pool side bar.

  • I had an enjoyable stay at Karen's studio. Its located on a side street and in walking distance to some great restaurants. I found it comfortable and it has real character with its large bed and high ceiling and nice wooden furniture. There is plenty of storage space and its useful to have a dvd player with so many dvd shops around. The music from a nearby restaurant always seems to stop at about 10.30 and it was not bad at all.

    I had a problem with the safe and Karen was at hand immediately to give help. She also kindly let me check out late

    If you want wifi in the studio I suggest you buy a Telkomsel sim card for your smart phone from a nearby shop. 60000 rupiah gave me more than 3 weeks great use.

    over all - a great stay!.

  • This is a lovely apartment in the heart of the city. very good stay in this location close to shops, Legian Street (the main street in Kuta) and 5 minutes walk from the beach. well placed and secure ... Karen is very nice and available ! The street is quiet and not noisy, the only downside is the bathroom a bit small and old but it is suitable for a single person.

I love to travel and usually spend several months every year in Bali. I'm a keen gardener and grow almost all our own fruit and veggies. when I'm in Bali we shop at the local food markets and eat with the locals. We enjoy sharing our Bali apartments with guests who take care of the studios and appreciate the very good price and value of our rooms.
