Other Things to Note
Its a house,please don't expect a service like when you book in a villa. We live in the other part of the island, instead of letting the house empty so we try to rent it out.
For now our terrace is still problem, but we manage to fix it as soon as possible.
DO NOT SMOKE IN THE ROOM!
PETS NOT ALLOWED IN THE BED!
The room is very nice and clean, also have a large garden with fresh tomatoes, salad, flowers and lots of vegetable, where we can take vegetable for free and cook ourselves. Moreover, lake view from window is another point make we choose this room. From this view, we can see the sunrise and sunset, Batur mountain and a very large lake. Sadu is a very nice Balian, we can ask him everything about Bali, he also a first aid and well-cooking person, so we feel safety when we have him as a tour guide. Finally, this is a very enjoyable place in Kintanami, we will come back to this place when we have a chance.
However, host is Dwi, he never appear and ask the phone when we call. House's location may very hard to find for a person who first come to Bali, so must be have an available phone for them to call. Sadu is not a host, he may a guy who in charge to take care the house and guess. We like Sadu, but dislike Dwi.
If you are going here to hike Mt Batur for the morning sunrise then you have picked THE BEST SPOT I could imagine. Go with Suda (ask Dwi about him). He is AMAZING! This was the coolest thing that we did while in Bali and Suda was part of the reason it was so amazing. You. Will. Love. It! (And him...) :)
As for the place, it is a really authentic Balinese experience. The view is UNREAL - pics don't do it justice. Be very careful on the deck though - very unstable. No great shakes about the house - but it is super cheap...you shouldn't expect a ton. It is pretty noisy for sleeping - bring a sound machine/ear plugs. It is right by the road and there are cars going by most of the night. The beds are nothing great, but like I said, if you are just looking to go there for a night and do Mt. Batur then you can't go wrong with this place. There is some sort of animal that is living in the roof that you will hear at night but we never saw it and it didn't bother us, otherwise. Honestly, I would stay here again, but just for one night for the hike. Suda picks you up at 4am and you walk straight there through the back woods. It is amazing! :)
Perfect view from the house overlook the mountain and lake. Quiet and peaceful, a place where you can relax and ease your mind. Good local meals prepared by sadu during our stay. 1 night is not enough! you wouldn't want leave the house with such a peaceful environment. Other than fighting with mozzies, everything else is perfect. Thank you sadu for guiding us for our first mt batur hiking. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you dwi for having such a nice home with nice people around.
This location is very beautiful. We were greeted at the driveway. We used the same driver our entire trip who was able to call and get directions to the house. He also went in the back way into the crater so we would not be charged and a fee by the locals for coming into town. The house keeper offered to make us dinner which was really nice. We didn't take him up on it, but after going to one of the few local restaurants, we wished we had. We also used the recommended guide to hike up the mountain for sunrise. This was a pretty strenuous hike (I was not wearing the correct shoes), but it was amazing!!! Our guide made us breakfast once we got to the top and took us the longer, scenic rout down to see a cave and monkeys.
Dwi and Coco were delightful hosts. They received us in the house and showed us around.
The house is lovely with an authentic atmosphere. Everything was neat and clean. The roof terrace is great with a nice view of the lake and mountains.
One morning we went to Gunung Batur climb, organized by Sadu, a friend of Coco and Dwi. Sadu was really friendly and even showed us his own house. He cooked for us twice. Fresh fish with vegetables from the organic garden. He is an exellent cook.
After the climb Gunung Batur we were in the hot springs, located nearby, great for the tired muscles.
All in all it was a great and interesting experience, and the house was perfect for our purposes, exploration of the area.
We met Coco and Dwi in Seminiak on the way home from Bali. They are really friendly and hospitable. Thank you.
Me and my friends were there only just one night, but we don't want to leave the place after all. Eevn we did meet the host Dwi in person but Dwi was very helpful he answered me all my questions. And he introduced me his friend Sadu who was the person taking care of us during our stay.
Sadu is a experienced guide and a good friend he took us to the Mt. Batur and Hot Spring.
This is the best Airbnb experience I ever had.
I strongly recommended this to any body who is looking for the natural experience and would like to go to the Mt. Batur, go with a experience local guide like Sadu.
Had one of the best travelling experience at Rumah Shanty.
Amazing view, great amenities. The design of the villa really surpassed my expectation! Huge room with local art pieces, sun beds, bathtub, clean towels, fully functional kitchen, garden with organic vegetables and fruits!
Our Host Sadu was extremely nice, he cooks really well (He made the best fries I've ever tasted) and can do guided trips paddling to the centre of Batur Lake or climbing up Mount Batur and/or other volcanos in the region.
Loved it, highly recommend anyone who loves nature to have a stay!
