Are there any self catering places on Gili Air?

I am planning our next vacation to Indoesia and we were planning on spending 2-3 weeks in the Gili Islands, possibly Gili Air.

But as we are travelling with a 3 year old I was wondering if anyone knew of any reasonably priced places with kitchen facilities or maybe apartments that are for rent. I think it would just make life easier for him after 3 weeks of travelling to have a bit of space.

Any ideas on Gili Air or any of the other islands?

Thank you

There are some smaller houses that you can rent if you stay for a while. Most bungalows do not have kitchen since eating out is cheap. If you are going in the low season you want have any problems finding somewhere to stay. I would not realy worry about having a lot of space though because I dont think you will spend a lot of time inside. I spent a year with my one year old daughter on Gili Air and the garden was the most used place. Gili Air is a wonderful place for small children:)

The food is so cheap I would not worry about any self catering. You will have trouble sourcing the items you need to cook and when you actually work out the cost it winds up being cheaper to just eat at the restaurants. We have been several times to the Gili Islands starting from when our child was 18 months onwards and it has never been a problem with food. Take a break from cooking and just enjoy how cheap it is to eat and drink. Also, most places are really clean and there are lots of food choices for your child. We just got back from another trip there and again it was a perfect holiday.
