About this listing
Please read detailed description - change of breakfast set up starting February 2016.
Our main highlight is the location close to the main road, restaurants and
our great energy home shared with friendly family.

We share a room, on the first floor facing the pool, in a separate building within a compound. Completed with private shower room, AC, House staff to tidy up daily and change your sheets once a week, extra towels are provided within reasonable use, Hot water, Internet, Swimming Pool.
The room can accommodate 3 persons with extra pulled out on the floor.

The room is located on the ground floor of the guest house.
Another double bed room is also available above it.
So, If you are traveling with another couple it would be easy to book at the same place.
This room has sound system, a dvd player and tv, even though we do not have cable tv in the bed room. Zillions of dvd to borrow.
The bed is very comfortable to rest after a long day tour. This is because we bought mattresses in the house for our personal use - and it is important that it is comfortable for our back. Not too soft, not too hard. A nice big sofa is there for you to sit and read. The room is facing a beautiful pool and is perfect to laze, sunbathe while sipping summer drinks.
The room has a nice writing desk to do writing or work too if you need to.
It is set an old fishing village that now becomes villas area, lots of neighborhood's activities but far away from the main road. Sanur is famous for its amazing sunrise.
You can walk to the beach and many restaurants and souvenirs shops near by. It is located 45 minutes by taxi to the famous Kuta Beach where the party area is.
Sanur is less crowded and has way nicer atmosphere for a mellow holiday.
We only provide simple breakfast, included with the room price ie. bread and jam, coffee and tea. Any additional is only complimentary if we do have the staff and in our own discretions.
We do have small dogs (3) but they are taken care by our staff.
You will be living and sharing our daily life, but the guest house is independent of the main house. So, you still have your privacy.
Denpasar has various attractions. The white sandy beaches are well-known all over the island.Some of the surfing beaches are Kuta Beach, Legian Beach and Canggu Beach. Sanur beach has calmer waters and is excellent for sunbathing.
Ten minutes from the Ngurah Rai International Airport lies the town of Kuta/Seminyak. Kuta is where most of the hotels, restaurants, malls, cafes, marketplaces, and spas that cater to tourists are located. In the Denpasar area, all kinds of Balinese handicrafts are represented in local shops. These include artwork, pottery, textiles, and silver.
Public transport is not Bali's strength, where ever you go, you need to either walk, rent a car/taxi/motor bike. Our location is near to everything you need to see in Sanur by walking.
