This is a true little home away from home.

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.

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 (website hidden). 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.
Enjoy your stay

About the Host, Karen
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.
