“Fantastic B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for for four nights and would certainly come back! Mike is fantastic, he arranged our airport pick-up for a reasonable cost and gave us a great welcome! The location is a little walk away from places to eat (about 1km) but scooters can be hired cheaply (we however didn't bring an international driving licence and didn't want to risk it) we walked everywhere without issue (although do bring a torch as there is little/no street lighting and no pavements).
The breakfasts are fantastic, my wife recommends the pancakes! The room was clean and very big with a huge bathroom. The canggu club is superb, great gym and pool which we made lots of use of, it certainly makes the room rate an utter bargain (if you make use of them!). The communal roof terrace amazing, such a nice space to plan your next days activities or just relax.

My family stayed at Bali Starling for 5 days last month and cannot speak highly enough of Mike, the owner, and his superb homestay. The decor is lovely and the views out to the rice paddies are beautiful. Everyone mentions the breakfasts on their reviews and they really are fantastic - wide selection of choices, delicious ingredients and freshly prepared to order when you get up in the morning! I think we worked our way through all the selections during our stay and toughest decision was which one to choose for the next morning!

Travelling with our two young children we really appreciated the spacious room - plenty of space for 2 travel cots and access to the Canggu club was brilliant - we went there every day to make the most of the pool and great kids amenities. It was a 15 minute walk there - along the side of fairly busy roads but perfectly do-able for us with a buggy and we appreciated the swim to cool off at the end!

We cannot speak highly enough of Mike - his hospitality and helpfulness really was over and above - he was happy to share lots of advice, tips, hints and really helped us out with lots and lots of questions! Thanks so much and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mike and the Bali Starling Homestay!

Mike and his wife have created a beautiful lovely place at the Bali Starling Homestay. It's close to Kuta and at the same time away from the crowd and the busy areas, perfect to resource oneself. The breakfast are just awesome and the owners really friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it to anyone who look for a nice, affordable and stylish accommodation in Bali.

My wife stayed at this lovely homestay recommended by the good reviews I had. And I have to say q not disappoint us. The place is beautiful in the heart of Canggu, surrounded by rice fields. The decor is tastefully done and the breakfast is great. Absolutely not recommended.

We stayed at Bali Starling Homestay for a week at the end of March and had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Mike, the owner, was an excellent host and prepared a delicious breakfast for us every morning. There was such an excellent selection for breakfast that most evenings my biggest concern was which one to choose. However, the full breakfast, avocado toast and buttermilk pancakes were very good. The rooms were large, cool and nicely decorated. They were cleaned every day to a good standard. The breakfast area was open plan with a large communal table and balcony overlooking greenery and blue sky. Mike was happy to organise a motorbike for us as well as our transport back to the airport.
Overall our stay was wonderful. We were a 5 minute motorbike ride from Berawa beach and about 10 minutes to Echo beach. I particularly wanted to be in this area because it is much quieter than being in the Kuta 'madness' and the location of the honestay was perfect for this. It was incredibly quiet and a welcome spot after coming from the noise and chaos of Jakarta.
If you are looking for great service, delicious food and nice spacious rooms then I can absolutely recommend this charming Homestay.

Beautiful rooms, well maintained and clean, good hot showers, large comfortable bed, and really good breakfast each day, tailored to your individual order. A bit of an isolated location, but otherwise a great place to rest up and feel pampered in quality surroundings.

We stayed here back in October. We originally stayed for a couple of nights at the beginning of our trip, loved it so much and came back for a few more nights at the end of our trip.

The house is amazing and the guestrooms are very comfortable and very clean. Mike and his wonderful hospitality also lend to the easy going and relaxing atmosphere. Mike also was the man behind the freshly cooked breakfasts each morning - delicious! Quite a few different things to choose from as well, and freshly made while you sit up in their lovely lounge overlooking rice paddies etc.

Having access to the Canggu club was an unexpected perk of being here and we ended up spending more time here than we would've thought :P

Canggu itself was away from the busy streets of Seminyak etc .. traffic on the roads is very light, it's easy to walk to the Canggu club and to the beach (10 - 20 min).

It was such a lovely stay and we'd be happy to stay again for sure. Thanks to Mike and his family (and their cute puppy) for their wonderful hospitality!
