We've been twice in that place, first time in 2012 and now, back again in 2014. Accommodation is one of the best option in low budget, clean and comfortable bungalow. Good location, only 2 minutes walking from Coral Bay. And, finally, the food is really good and not expensive, you can't find another place with better food in Perhentian Kecil.... More

We stayed at Ewan's for a week. The rooms are basic but comfortable with everything you need. The bed was comfortable, there are power sockets to charge things, the bathroom is clean and functional. The staff are pretty friendly (especially Nora!) and the food in the is good and cheap.

We stayed at Ewans place for 6 nights. He does not take reservations, so we were lucky. It is a very clean bungalow, with musquito net and private bathroom. It is situated near coral bay and long beach. We have had a great time, also because of the delicious food in ewans cafe. Every day it is full of people... More

Three of us shared a bungalow for four nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Ewans is a three minute walk inland from Coral Bay, and from there it's just eight to ten minutes to walk to Long Beach. - Rooms / bungalows are clean and in great condition. No AC in ours, but had a fan that made... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Ewans Place for a month, when we had originally planned to stay just one week - they must be doing something right. Negative points first: It is fair to say that on our first couple of nights at Ewans, we weren't that impressed: the mosquito net in the room had holes in; the fan... More

I can absolutely recommend both staying and eating at Ewans place! Really good prices, really nice staff! Clean spacious rooms and close to Coral Bay and Long beach. Minus is that the water gets heated up during the day so it might be difficult to shower after 11am and before ca 5pm. But thats the only thing!

We found Ewan's place by recommendation of a friend; it is located a 2 minutes walk from Coral Bay. Even though the service is slightly non-existant, Ewan is a nice guy and his bungalows are in excellent shape, clean and very spacious. All (budget) accommodation on Perhentian Kecil is very basic, so expect nothing more than a bed, musquito net,... More

Myself and my partner stayed at Ewans Place for a total of 10 nights in September 2013. This was our second stay, as we spent 4 nights there 2 years ago, back in September 2011. Our last review is under 'Ewan Cafe' as his rooms hadn't been reviewed before. Since staying there 2 years previously, a few things have changed...... More

We were feeling very lucky to have stepped at this place while trying to find somewhere to sleep in the high season. The bungalow was spacious, functional, clean and quiet. The bed was comfortable. Mosquito net in brand new condition, fan working very well. Restaurant had a good choice of local and Western dishes and was relatively cheap comparing to... More
