Kitchenette, wifi, super king bed, gated veranda, cable tv, a fantastic apartment and location. Currently our guests have access to the lovely resort rooftop pool next door.

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 widescreen tv and full size fridge freezer. Too many facilities to mention but we welcome your enquiry.

Thank you for choosing to stay in our apartment STUDIO 7

We hope you find the studio clean and comfortable in this vibrant neighbourhood. If you have any concerns or questions, please talk with Susan, our trusted Balinese manager. Her mobile number is (li prefix is 062. If you find anything broken or not working when you arrive, please contact us or Susan. We would rather put it right than to have it be a concern during your stay. Remember you can email

Please try steps 1,2 & 3 before locking the safe if you are not familiar with it's operation.
PLEASE leave the safe open on your final departure thanks.
Cable TV/DVD Press the input button on the Sharp remote to choose DVD, scroll down to input 5.
Air Con. Long stays pay for their own power consumption. In any event please ensure the air con is turned off if you leave the studio for any length of time and please don't have the air con on if you have the doors open.
Lights. The light switches for the room and outside are in the rear of the wardrobe.
Security. Please ensure the door is locked when you go away from the property. For further security keep the gate locked when sleeping or away. If you have an urgent security problem please see the guards at the next door AP apartments/suites. They can also be of assistance if people are parking in front of or blocking your entrance.
Swimming Pool. At the time of writing this, we currently pay for our guests to use the rooftop pool and sun loungers of the AP apartments next door. Please take your own towels, you may purchase food and drinks poolside too. The pool is not available for your visitors.
Housekeeping. Your independent stay includes weekly linen change. If you wish to have a more frequent arrangement you may enter into a private agreement with Susan. Please place your bagged rubbish outside your gate in the morning by 8:30 a.m. Please remember there are cats around and they could get into anything you leave lying around outside. If you need to dispose of your rubbish the trash closet is on the back lane between the local food stands. Oil, fat and food scraps should not go in the sink.
Tap Water is not safe to drink without boiling. Your empty 19L reservoir can be swapped at the coco shop (by the Victory bar) or around the corner of AP Inn toward Kuta Town Houses at a little transport store (next to the money changer).
Money Changers & purchases. We find the best money changer is the green office on Bemo corner. Another trusted one is the small office around the corner from AP apartments toward the Kuta Town Houses. The small hole in the wall types with high counters are generally not trustworthy or will take commissions.
Cooking. Please be careful. Ensure gas is fully turned off at the stove after each use and disconnect any cooking appliances.
Laundry. There is a great little laundry across the lane next to Come In Cafe. Another is around the corner from AP Inn toward Kuta Town Houses.
Smoking. Please do not smoke indoors.
Power. Bali often has power outages. They usually don't last more than a few hours but if you keep your torch charged and handy it could be helpful. If your power goes out because you have drawn more electricity than the studio is capable of, turn off other appliances and reset the switch at the box on the balcony. Please turn switches off before unplugging appliances.
Toilets. Please only put toilet paper down. No paper towels or tampons as they will block up and any repair will be at your own cost.
Plants. Please water the ones on your balcony if necessary. You are welcome to water the outside plants.
Checkout. Usual check out is mid day. Please make your check out arrangements with Susan. Please replace or compensate for any items you have broken or damaged before you depart.

Very accommodating. Karen is quick to answer any questions you have about Bali. The helper is very friendly attentive. Location is great as it is close to everything yet it's still quiet during the night. Overall good to stay

Great little private studio just off Poppies 1. Clean, quiet with security close by. Perfect for solo travellers and couples. I will certainly stay here again.

It was great to stay in a place so close to the beach and restaurants / entertainment yet was quiet enough you could get some sleep. Great instructions were provided to find the place, it was clean and tidy and had all the amenities I needed.

Karen is a great host and very understandable. She organized everything before our arrival and followed up on everything. It makes you really welcome and she understands your needs and is very flexible. When you want a cozy place with all possible amenities and central Kuta, this is a very good choice. The pool, which you are allowed to use on next door's hotel is great and surely a plus.

Everything was as described in the photos. A nice clean cosy studio with everything I needed. Great location close to the beach, nightlife, shops and eateries and even though I felt pretty safe, there were always security guards stationed close by. Excellent air con and hot water shower and nice big fridge. The rooftop pool is very cool and the staff up there were happy to bring me drinks and snacks. I've stayed there before and hope to again. Karen offered some great tips for getting by in kuta.

Karen was a great host, she provided me with all the necessary information prior to my arrival. Susan the manager was waiting for me when I arrived, despite long delays due to traffic congestion. The studio is a small, very functional unit right in the heart of Kuta; the pool to which guests have access is great and a perfect spot to relax. Only downside was the Internet: there is no direct internet access in the studio, and the wifi signal obtained from the hotel next door was very weak and worked only intermittently (mainly from the verandah). Overall a very pleasant stay.

Staying at this host was a tricky experience for us, as it had both positive and negative sides. Starting from the positive: the place was situated really in centre of the city with walking distance from beach and all possible restaurants. The neibourhood was quite and at our arrival Susan, the manager, was there to welcome us; even if it was really hard to communicate with her due to language barriers. The place tho had few negative sides: the first problem we encountered was the fridge as it stopped working after the first day; that wasn't a big problem as we weren't planning on doing groceries but it could be very helpfull to keep some fresh water. The place didn't really look like the pictures, and it unfortunately had a very bad smell contantly coming from the toilets, which i understand this might be the way bali is but i sometimes couldn't sleep at night. The door of the studio definitely needs some improvements on the security as it can be easily opened from the outside by pushing it, this didn't really let us enjoy our stay as we were always concerned about our personal belongings in the houst; we had a small safe but we couldn't fit a laptop inside and anybody could just lift it up and take it home under the arm. I should say anyway, that the rapport quality price was good and it was a nice vacation afterall. If Karen could fix these small problems the studio could become a perfect place for a short term staying.

Response from Karen:
Thanks for your review Simone and thanks for choosing to stay in our studio. I do appreciate you letting me know about the things you felt needed addressing. We prefer guests let us know of anything while they are staying so we can fix it, rather than letting us know after the stay. Yes of course we will look into those issues, the fridge has been taken to the repair shop. Sorry the safes are not designed to hold laptops. It is bolted into the cupboard. The entrance door has a top and bottom slide bolt which sounds like they weren't pushed in. But we will ensure they are working.

We enjoy letting our Bali apartments to guests who take care of the studios and appreciate the good price, amenities and value of our rooms.
As we are independent travellers ourselves, we understand the needs of guests who would rather have a studio with private facilities.
