As soon as we arrived we were made to feel at home, the owners Dian and Kade take the time to chat and make you feel comfortable. The four bungalow style rooms are set in a beautiful, tranquil garden and all have a seating area outside the front. The rooms are basic, but very large and clean, and met all our needs. We only booked for 3 nights but ended up staying a week as we enjoyed our stay so much. The breakfast was excellent, tea/coffee, fruit plate and pancake - The banana ones are the best! This is a great homestay for those on a budget. It is also just around the corner from Warung Indonesia, a great Indonesian restaurant that serves the best food and is probably the cheapest place to eat on the island.

I stayed there during the high season and therefore getting rooms was going to be tough, after all i was going to be there for 9 days.

This place transformed over the time i was there, from just a roof over my head, to a place i could call home on the island.

The place is run by the most brilliant lady i have come across in indonesia. Kade is friendly and always there willing to help or just have a good conversation.

Her breakfast in the morning is just too good. PANCAKES WITH SLICED BANANAS! I had those every single morning.

It is brilliantly located, slightly away from the beach. Its like a little hideout, so if you want to get away from the party at the beach and just sit in the garden or relax on a hammock by your porch without the sounds of the hustle and bustle, you can.

A 5 min stroll gets you smack centre of happening stretch of beach, so no worries there either.

I think the most important thing for me was i was very welcomed as a guest and soon friend.

To me, it was great value for money for the price you pay and for the service you get.

Within easy access from the harbor, 5 min walk to the beach and to the restaurant/bar area. Safe, quiet, small place. With good value, clean and spacious rooms, each having an own terrace. The garden is really pleasant and spiritual place to sit and relax. Tasty banana pancakes, good coffee and fruit salad for breakfast.
Really great and cozy place with the charming owner, Dian, who has local knowledge and exciting stories from all over the world. He is really making everyone feel at home.
We stayed four nights and had a great time: enjoying the discussions with Dian and made friends with couple from the neigbourg room. Definitely THE place to stay in Gili Trawangan!

As soon as you turn the corner of the small road of the guesthouse the music and the noise of the funny night in Gili stop !! 4 quite rooms with a nice and trim garden, the landlord Mr Dian, is very nice, very helpful for anything you'll need, expecially if you are looking for informations to organize your travel in lombok or to the others islands (i suggest Flores !!!), he'll take care for you, he'll wait for you waking up, to prepare a wonderful breakfast sitting in the garden, he'll help you with very useful advices (about diving, travelling,... sometimes about life!).
what more... wi-fi, hot water, 1-2 minutes walking from restaurantes, diving centers and the beach-
Price: we went there in very low season but it was incredibly low (even comparing with others in gili) we paied 180 kRp /room/night.
Enjoy.

Good value, clean and spacious room. Great breakfast, tasty banana pan cakes, good coffee and fruit salad. Friendly host with very good local knowledge and diving experience. Cold water showers available, with either fan or air conditioned rooms. Not to far from the beach, 5 min walk, but far enough to get away from the busy bars and restaurants if desired. Overall a lovely stay x
