Inspired during her second visit to Bali in 2003 to help support Wayan and Putri, and their young family living in a remote village. He dreamed to build a birdhouse and cultivate the nests carefully as to not harm the eggs and to increase the population that is presently threatened around the world. Suzan dreamed to live part time in this paradise. They worked together to formulate their dreams.
The large birdhouse was never used for the birds as they had a natural home in a cave not too far away. Today, the Swallow Guest House is a home servicing international guests who learn closely with the gracious Balinese people, about giving and doing for the good of "Karma".
It is small international companies founded by individuals like Suzan, that financially and intellectually assist in helping the island of Bali survive the effects of world change and maintain the rich and ancient culture so many have come to love. Travelite and leave a positive impact!
Now in 2015, two children are enrolled in senior highschool with dreams to work in the tourism industry. Wayan recovered from his stroke and Putri, his wife and very talented cook, remains popular with all who eats her delicious meals. Suzan left her teaching job in Korea and is now assisting others to travel compassionate with her new business venture - Geko Treker Companion Tours.
We are very grateful of all our guests reviews and returns and are looking forward to sharing the Balinese unique culture with you :)
