“The Best Place to Stay In Kuta, Lombok”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Clean, comfortable and quiet bungalows/bathroom with golf course quality grass throughout a large property that includes 2 swimming pools. Yuli and Mike's hospitality is second to none with helpful hints about the area. The breakfasts were wonderful and the service (Yuli's girls) was great. The trek to the beach is a short one with a motor bike, The restaurants in the area will deliver you to and from if you don't want to motor bike in the evening afte a few drinks. Reserve in advance as Yuli is quite busy. You will not regret your stay at Yuli's.

Room Tip: Book ahead!!!

Kuta is a great town, not at all what we were expecting. Really chilled out surf vibe with traditional houses and a handful of unpretentious shops and cafes. There are not a lot of options right on the beach so Yuli was a good location considering, just a short walk up from the main strip and easy access to all the stunning south coast beaches by motorbike. The room was large and clean and Yuli herself was incredibly friendly. We stayed during the Muslim Eid celebrations and love being able to immerse ourselves in the local culture. If you are less inclined you may find the mosque next door a little noisy, but we really enjoyed it. A great mid range option if you are staying in Kuta.

We did not stay at Mike and Yuli's but we were fortunate enough to stumble upon their home stay after a difficult situation we had with another guesthouse and some money that had gone missing from our room. They were incredibly helpful and caring towards us even though we had just wandered up and weren't even staying there. They were as friendly as could be, they loaned us a motorbike for the week that we ended up staying in Kuta, and they gave us amazing recommendations on local restaurants and beaches. The sweetest people on the planet. Their property and home stay is absolutely beautiful. Thanks you two! You're awesome!

I reserved and made the full payment in advance as requested by Mike via PayPal for 8 nights in Yulis and Mike Homestay. It was also the only place we stayed in Lombok and Bali who have requested full payment in advance.
Apparently everything looks very nice ... the first night we were surprised by a situation, which Yuli and Mike should first inform their clients, is that if you have a very light sleep as we will most likely have had an almost sleepless night because the speakers of a Muslim Mosque that is almost upon Yulis and Mike are going to wake up you around 4 AM with prayers and music, beyond that it will be repeated in the morning at night, and during the day. It was quite unpleasant for us; it was a night to forget ...
Regarding the room for the price concerned we can accept but it is certainly very basic and the breakfast is quite simple, it is a very small glass of juice with a lot of water inside and a pancake.
The worst thing that caused us to get out of Yulis and Mike on the first day to another hotel was almost the trash in front of our room. In that morning was burning organic waste and plastics producing fumes and gases that beyond smelled toxic unbearable and this place is next where they serve the breakfast… we took our breakfast with great difficulty because I of the terrible smell... As a European I can not understand this! I found that is normal to burn the waste in Lombok and Bali, but in front of the houses of the guests and beside the place where you eat is really unbelievable when it burns trash, plastics and organics dropping toxic fumes and gases enough!
I was surprised because I had not read previously about this situation on TripAdvisor and now I see that someone has also talked about this, I am still amazed how there are so many positive reviews about this place ... maybe our room was in the wrong place…
After explaining the reasons to Mike and Yuli that we could not stay there any longer we find that the apparent sympathy fall and they didn´t refund us, at least part of my full payment already made and we had to pay again for a new stay elsewhere losing all the money paid in Yuli and Mike. There was nothing pleasant our experience in this place… we rented a car and it was arranged by Yuli and Mike and in the end when we deliver the car appeared one men saying that he was the owner of the car and said that we had damaged the car with scratches on various sides in the vehicle when it was delivered with all these risks ...unbelievable!

We decided to escape Jakarta and head to Lombok for a week in March. Yuli's was a perfect getaway and a place i could recommend to anyone wanting to explore the southern part of Lombok. The rooms were simple and very clean and the atmosphere of the whole place was very relaxed yet efficient. There are two pools in which to relax in and also two small kitchens for customers to use if you wish to cook or prepare your own food. We would buy some fresh pineapples from the locals and cut them and add to our breakfast which was basic but satisfactory. Yuli and Mike were very hospitable and the staff were happy, friendly and helpful. Bikes for hire were provided and were in good condition. The new road from heading west from Kuta was a joy to ride and Mike was very helpful in giving tips on where to go from good restaurants to hard to find beaches.
A great place to unwind!

Yuli and Mike (and their little daughter Maya) offer all you can wish from a cosy homestay: good infos on the local surroundings, quiet and clean area (Mike could even strike a deal with the local mosque to keep the morning prayer a bit more quiet so that his guests catch a longer sleep), bike rental, comfy beds, smiles on the employees faces etc. Mike even got all our domestic flight tickets (which we paid him at the end ouf our trip).

If you are looking for a party hostel this homestay is surely not for you (so isn't Lombok anyways...) but if you love to have a chillaxed time - go there. For all surfers: Mike will get you in touch with friendly locals from Geropuk to ride the perfect (beginner and intermediate) waves there. All in all: More power to Mike and Yuli!

We went to Yuli's for our fourth time in January . Still fantastic. Even more rooms there now, and now two pools. Mike and Yuli are the best hosts and such nice people. We are planning to go again in August this year! We recommend Yuli's..try it... You won't be disppointed.
