Homestay Bali Starling
Ranked #40 of 149 Canggu B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 13, 2013

It was a very pleasant stay. The rooms are absolutely newly fitted out, very comfortable beds and nice bathrooms, everything was neat and clean, and very well planned. The property is very well located, 2 min by bike to the beach. The surrounding area features many nice restaurants, owned be expats and offering high quality delicious food. The surrounding area is not so dusty and crowned as Seminyak or Kuta, also much cleaner. Breakfasts were fantastically delicious, made personally by the owner Mike at your choice. Believe us this was not a continental breakfast, this was a very nutritious and homy breakfast that will give you energy for the whole day. Fresh granola done by Mike in professional oven with fruits and real yogurt were our favorite (you should see , how big were the portions) and fantastic BLT sandwiches (everything roasted just a second before serving) and pancakes and much more!!! These breakfasts could be successfully sold to neighbor hotels, all our friends were jealous! And what's more, Mike assisted us with bike rentals and taxis and car rentals, places to see and to eat at, helped us with many other personal questions (what delicious to bring home back etc). You feel like staying in a very comfortable hotel, but being independent from the crowd and guided by locals, feels like you came to visit friends.

Hi Olga,

How's that 'inburgeringscursus' going? Already moved to Amsterdam or still in Moscow?
Many thanks for your extensive review. Hope you're happy & healthy.

All the best,
Mike & Marcella

Modern, cool home stay with wonderful hosts Mike and Marcella. The building is beautifully designed and furnished. Mike cannot do enough for you. I left my passport at the airport (don't ask!) and he even went to pick it up for me.

Breakfasts were unbelievably good. A lot of love and effort goes into the making of them and it shows.

And then you get access to the Canggu Club which is soooo relaxing.

We ended up staying here twice and for about 10 nights in total and cannot recomend this home stay highly enough.

What a great find, perfect location as a base to explore Seminak, Legian,Kuta and Echo Beach by bicycle.I did also enjoy coming back to a fresh and clean abode with crisp sheets and a generously sized modern bathroom.
Mike and Marcella were a great source for info re places to shop, eat and general Bali gossip.
Canggu Club ( walking distance) is like stepping into Somerset Maugham novel, thank you Mike and Marcella.

This homestay has small private hotel qualities added to the big hotel style experiemce of 'Canggu club membership' and the proximity to Echo beach and many good restaurants.
The 4 guest rooms are well appointed and almost new.
Breakfast is certainly well above average- not your average bali pancake deal.
The neighbouring barking dogs were my only complaint. as they did wake us during the nights as we sleep with windows open as we are unaccustomed to sleeping in 'quieter' sealed airconditioned rooms.

Room Tip: pay the little extra for one of the delux rooms.

We really enjoyed our stay at this place. The hosts are most outstanding and tried to make your stay as pleasant as possible.The room was very spacious and the view over the green scenery marvelous. We looked forward every morning to the best breakfast we had in any home stay ever. We had bicycles organized for the very first morning and were given very exciting routes through the area by the very knowledgable Mike. Ask him for the cycle route to Seminyak, I promise a trip most worthwhile!!!!!
We certainly will come back when for more chilled out days.

Room Tip: The best room is the one on the second floor, very spacious and the traditional thatched roof!!

Hi Nici & Meira,

Thanks for promoting the cycling trip to Seminyak! People who are brave enough to ride their bicycle to Seminyak, always ask us for directions after reading your review. And we always advise them to take the ice cream break halfway. :)

Warm regards,
Mike & Marcella
