About this listing
Looking for some thing different? .....perhaps a funky beach house with your own beach infront ?
We have no AC but have strong fans & sea breezes, deserted beach views and great sunsets .
If you're an adventurer at heart....we're the place for you.
Its an adventure to stay at Kai's Beach House! Difficult to find and hard to forget. This is the place to relax, kick back and chill out....and get away ...from it all!
Kai's beach House is made mainly of wood and has a funky "shabby chic" look! Its 10 steps to the beach from the front door and there's a full sunset show every night.
It has 3 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, (two upstairs & one stands alone in the garden), fully equipped kitchen,lounge area with huge sofa and flat screen TV for movies, small gardens back & front & a plunge pool to cool off in.
Each bedroom has a super comfy large bed,strong fan (no AC) & semi open en suite bathroom, to shower under the palm trees ...or even the stars!
You have to be adventurous to stay here! The house is on the quieter side of Gilli Air island & it's a 10 minute bicycle ride or a 15 minute walk to the main area of bars & restaurants. Part of the way is unlit at night so you need a good torch or a horse cart booking for a dinner excursion. However we can organise a fidh BBQ fof you for 150,000rp and the price of the food, or fan order food delivery for a 50,000 rp charge and the price of the food. There is also a beach bar / restaurant/ beach bungalows with WIFI two minutes walk away and other restaurants 10 mins along the beach.
The reef allows the sea to the beach for half of the day, so sometimes its too shallow to swim in front of the house....then its time to explore the rock pools!
There are no cars, motor bikes or any form of motorised vehicles allowed on the island,but horse drawn carts / "cidomos" are available all day and can sometines be booked in the evening, (we have telephone numbers at the house).
We provide drinking water, breakfast and beach towels & our friendly staff are ready to help you.
We ask that you do not bring any plastic bottles or bags to leave at Kai's Beach House thanks .

Beach parties: Gili Trewanagan is the "party island" whilst Gili Air remains its "laid back neighbour". However there are a few beach parties & live music venues.The trunks of the palm trees act as billboards, as flyers are posted on them! So keep a look out to find out whats happening on the island.
Lombok: Trips to the much larger and very beautiful island of Lombok are available too.The stunning Sendang Gila Waterfall or traditional pottery & basket villages are popular destinations. Lombok is also home to the second highest volcano in Indonesia- Mount Rinjani and treks to the top can be organised over 2 or 3 days.
