This is an amazing find. We stayed here for 8 nights and had no regrets. The home stay is run by a young Dutch couple. They are extremely helpful and they go out of their way to make you feel at home without being intrusive.
The room is comparable to a good four star hotel: with a DVD player, a very comfortable bed, Cable TV with English channels, fridge, safe, air-conditioning and so on.
The breakfast is outstanding. Very fresh, all homemade ingredients a range of choices such as balsamic mushrooms, homemade onion marmalade, homemade granola, humus (I'm guessing that was homemade too), eggs, tropical fruits, bacon. It is filling and delicious. The coffee is good quality and good 'n' strong with a choice of cappuccino, latte, espresso or long black.
The location is idyllic on the edge of a tropical meadow spotted with bannana trees. It is bustling with an orchestra of insect noises to lull you to sleep. You will need transport to enjoy the area but the owner arranged a moped for us within 30 minutes of arrival (50, 000 rp a day)
If this wasn't enough, the deal comes with free membership to Canguu Club a 3 minute drive away. The daily rate to join this club for two people would be 60, 000 rp. This is more than we paid for the room which included membership and breakfast! Canguu Club is fantastic Google it. It's like something from the colonial Raj. A fantastic gym, large pool, tennis courts, playing fields, even a library. I believe there are squash courts too. The club is all wicker chairs, white, sophistication with impeccable service all very posh. Don't forget to bring your tennis rackets.
We also loved their dog (only allowed outdoors). A friendly white mongrel who greets you with a wagging tail when you arrive 'home'.
Canggu is also very nice. Padi fields, close to the beach (on a moped) lots of great healthy eateries.
This really is an exceptionally good deal and is ideal for anyone who is prepared to ride a moped.
