Dayu, Manager is happy to help you with anything you need. She will meet you upon arrival.
Sanur is a lovely truely unique holiday destination. It has much community Hindu spirit and many ceremonies. The beach is very popular as it is protected by a reef so relaxing and enjoying the area is a breeze. Sanur is one of the special spiritual places in Bali.
Lots of hire vehicles, but make sure you have an international drivers licence, insurance (hospital stay is very expensive ) and knowledge of riding a scooter if you want to hire one. As they can be dangerous and these roads are busy. You must wear a helmet and footwear at all times and have your licence and visitors registration (Manager will arrange) on you. Save you getting a fine from the police.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 21 days. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. Although it is not walking distance to the main strip of shops and restaurants it is a great location for anyone. If you rent a motor scooter from Dayu the location couldn't be easier. Apartments were clean and spacious. Once a week we had our place cleaned for free and they gave us clean linens for 38.000IDR. Great place to stay for a relaxing vacation.
Really great place in a quite side of Sanur, place it's like in the pictures, if you like what you see book it.
The apartment was nice and the people were always nice and helpful. The attachment was always clean and tidy. So we had a great stay in Bali.
We booked a week here for our daughter who is traveling in Bali and these are her comments:
Pondok Gaya is a lovely, well maintained, private place to stay. The pool is a nice bonus. The units are very self-sufficient and the manager is friendly. You need to have a phone to call him if there are any issues. Unfortunately, the air conditioning in my unit wasn't working, but otherwise it was a nice stay.
Pondok Gaya is amazing. Small apartments in a wonderful serene setting a couple of blocks from the tourist strip of Sanur and beautiful beaches. I spent hours on the porch, happy to listen to the local sounds and birds. This is a wonderful place to stay if you want to experience more of the real Bali.
The pool is a great little private sanctuary or get together spot with other neighbours. Was in there everyday...
Local Warung food is amazingly inexpensive and the best I tasted in the Bali.
The owners are warm and welcoming and Dayu the manager will go above and beyond to help with any enquiries or requirements. On top, she's a beautiful person and am thankful to now call her a friend. :)
I would recommend hiring a scooter, bicycle or motor bike for your stay to make everything accessible. Dayu organised this for me very cheaply once I got there, as well as rides for tours and transfers. (The busy Sanur bypass can be scary for a day or two on the bike, but then it's a piece of cake)
Wonderful stay! Am still traveling and haven't come across anything close to accom like Pondok Gaya. Am considering moving back on a longer term basis.
Highly recommended! :)
We really enjoyed our stay here, staff were friendly, pool was clean, room got tidyed, we were happy there and staff even helped rent a moped. Good value and just ten mins from beach. We would happily go back and stay again. Thanks Peter and June
I am Dayu a Balinese mum with 4 lovely children. My husband and I run Pondok Gaya and we are both Hindu. Managing Pondok Gaya is always a pleasure and we meet such nice people from all over the world.
