We stayed for 8 nights in room one, which had disability access ~ a rare find in Bali !!! Level access shower and appropriately installed rails, lots of space to maneuver a wheelchair if needs be. There was even a small ramp to the veranda and thru the cafe to the street!
Our 4 yo loved the pool which is ample size for the area. It needed a bit more attention re: chlorine on occasion, and was quickly rectified. None of us got sick from the pool water.
Our room was always immaculately cleaned and early on in the morning too , often whilst we ate brekkie, which suited us. I think you could have had brekkie on your veranda if you had have asked, as we often ate other food and drinks from the yummy cafe. And nothing was ever too much trouble for the friendly staff. All the food and drink is comparable in price to the rest of Sanur and definitely not over priced.....and oh so YUMMY !!! especially the lemon meringue pie :D
Our sheets were always clean, a mozzie net and room repellent were provided and also a room plug in repellent. the grounds are sprayed once a week.....
The towels need to be replaced, though I think maybe this was in the works as I did see other rooms getting very white towels towards the end of our stay.
We arranged a late checkout and this was no problem, we just paid an extra day as we had a midnight flight...
Free bikes are available to take out and these are well maintained by the staff.
I wondered when the staff slept!! They were relentless in their sweeping, cleaning, filling orders, etc etc...... and super friendly without exception. They area a credit to the owners as it is one of things that would make me want to return.
This place is quirky, retro, (in a good way!), well maintained, friendly, relaxing , (did I mention the great lemon meringue pie?? ), and definitely NOT worthy of the "terrible" label from one reviewer.....it is a gem ,a hidden paradise and has the feel of something from the Greek Islands. The location is perfect ~ a stroll along a gang to the beach and a stroll to the street, surrounded by massage salons and warungs! and a whole plethora of places to eat !
Would definitely recommend this place for others to stay at... and would be perfect for a group to rent out the whole place
We loved it!
