“TOP PICK!!! What a fantastic place. This should be your first call in Banda aceh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

I went by for a week and stayed for 10. This place feels like a second home. With all the trimmings. The rooms are fantastic! Modern,clean, and bright!
The best thing about this place though is the service. Eddie and danni are FANTASTIC. Two of the nicest guys I've ever met. True Indonesian hospitality!!! There is a great restaurant down the road and a shop next door. Eddie and danni have bikes to rent to get into town or to head to waterfalls and jungle rides the roads south are FANTASTIC with monkeys and coffee shops with fantastic views!!! 2 hours south is a national park wardens camp looking after a baby elephant. I had a great day there in fact I think I went twice!!!

Eddie's homestay is a wonderful place to stay and after my recent visit is my favourite guesthouse in South East Asia! Eddie's rooms are very well priced, clean and comfortable. The bedding in the rooms is fantastic - my room had one of the comfiest beds I've ever slept on - I slept well every night! Eddie's has kitchen and laundry facilities, an immaculate bathroom and a great outdoor area. Eddie and his staff keep the whole place very clean and there is WiFi throughout the whole premises including in the rooms. Eddie also offers motorbike and car rental at a very cheap price which is a bonus!

On our third night we had a beautiful home cooked meal prepared by Eddie's family. It was truly one of the best meals I've ever had. Everybody at the guesthouse was so grateful for such a delicious feed. It's definitely not one to miss! Eddie and his brother Danny are two of the loveliest people you will ever meet and bend over backwards to make sure their guests are happy. The location is prime - right opposite the golf course that leads to the beach and close to a small supermarket. There's also excellent warungs within walking distance.Eddie's was a highlight for me at the end of a six month trip throughout South East Asia and I would highly recommend it to anybody travelling to Lhoknga. There's no hassles, it's quiet but still great for socialising. 10/10 from me!

Thank you Eddie for a wonderful stay, I will definitely be back again!

I only stayed a night at Eddy's Homestay but I would recommend it to any backpacker or even a family willing to rough it a bit. Eddy and his family, survivors of the 2004 tsunami, have built a lovely place from scratch with great food and a relaxed vibe. The rooms are spacious clean and have everything you need including wifi. Eddy is generous, arranging everything from taxi to a day out fishing.

Wonderful place with fantastic service and food. I stayed for 16 days. Eddie, Dani and staff well and truly went above and beyond to look after me and other guests on the premises. Great place to socialise also. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Sunscreen, mosquito repellent, coils and spray available from the shop.

We stayed a couple of days, and it already felt like home. Lovely staff is taking good care of all visitors, and they helped to solve all problems. Rooms are clean and nice and the food is delicious. Location is good for surfing and swimming. Goes to Top-3 guesthouses in southeast asia that i've seen.

I must say a big thank you !
I felt to be at home.

After 7 months around Indonesia that was the cleanest and relaxing place to be, and the price are really correct. I was 3 times in this place on different period in 2013 (july, september and december). Eddie and Dani doing everything to help and make you comfortable. All family are really nice and friendly. The food is very very good and you have also the possibility to eat in some restaurant in the street.

At 3min walking to the beach, you can see during 6 months surfer and other 6 months kit surfer, but the most beautiful is the sunset, that was every night amazing with a different view...

Thanks for this experience I will never forget mon ami, I will go back soon in my home in Aceh....

Eddy and Danny are really kind and really helpful. They know where to send you for surfing, eating and enjoying Aceh. Loved playing soccer in Banda Aceh with Danny! The surf is pretty difficult for a beginner, but the vibe is good.
