Thibault GRANDAMY ,Francais ,né à Madagascar ,original!
We had an adventurous stay at Thibault's place. If you're looking for an all back to nature place to stay, this is the place. Thibault has made a beautiful space for a Robinson Crusoe feeling. The two houses are wonderfully arranged, it's very open and you're in the midst of a beautiful coconut grove. The walk to the beach is around 5minutes and there are plenty of places to have a nice breakfast. As we learned, it's best to go to sleep with the animals as you will wake up with them and that's going to be early ;)
Thibault was a great host, he waited for us at the harbour when we arrived and arranged for one of the horse carriages to take us to his place. He was always around if you had any questions and open for a quick chat and made us feel very welcome at his place.
As has been said in other comments, the shower is a salt water shower but if you have no problem with that it's a great place to stay :)
Thibault was a great host. He came and met me at port and carried my ridiculously heavy bag all the way to his place. The treehouses are the perfect Robinson Crusoe experience and only a five minute walk to the beach. If you're looking for a rustic island experience, this is your place!
It was a great experience staying at gili tibo house. The hut is basic but has all you need including electricity. Thibault was friendly and helpful and we would recommend.
We really enjoyed our stay at Tibo's! The description was spot on and the location was great - a short walk from the beach yet very peaceful. I highly recommend!!
Séjour très agréable, très accueillant, thibault est un hôte qui sera vous faire apprécier l'île et partager son expérience. Les bungalows sont magnifiques avec beaucoup de charmes! Nous le recommandons grandement !
A lovely place and host in the centre of Gili Meno! Surrounded by local nature and animals, the stay in Thibault's beautiful hut was an atypical, new as well as enriching experience for us: waking up with the sound of the roosters, taking a roofless shower with saltwater and being balanced by the rhythm of the local time,... we absolutely loved it and will surely go back when our city's dynamic pushes us back to find a place to rest far away from our day to day dimension.
Simply beautiful! Amazing stay!
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Tibo's lumbung. A totally hidden coconut grove on an already quiet island with fabulous beaches and bars with exquisite food nearby, we were in heaven. Particularly of note was the cleanliness and buglessness of the bamboo structure. We had been travelling around Borneo and had some much less desirable experiences there! Tibo was the perfect combination of friendly, helpful but respectful of our privacy and space. As advertised, there's no kitchen but a nice big fridge for those ever-necessary cold drinks (it was HOT!) The fact that the bathroom is an outhouse may be inconvenient for some (a pain for pregnant me) and the shower is very salty. In fact, if there had been a fresh water shower we could quite easily have spent months there!
Highly recommended. When Bali and Gili T's constant stream of tourists can get you down, this place is the perfect antidote.
Gili Tibo was a great homestay. Literlly less than 5 mins walk to the beach, it was nice to be in the interior a bit and away from all the rows of guesthouses that line the beach. Tibo is a laid back pretty informative French man who seems to speak some Indonesian so he can be of help to you. The stilt-houses themselves are lovely. Only drawback is having to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, which requires climbing up and down stairs with a flashlight.
les bungalows sont absolument ravissants
