Our small homestay SanteSante (meaning relax, or take it easy) is situated directly at the beach. You will wake up with the sound of the small waves and you can enjoy your breakfast at the beach. Our restaurant and the bungalow is all simple and self-built with a lot of love to detail and design. The bathroom is attached to the bungalow and you can watch the stars when taking a shower in the eveneing since it has no roof. Maumere is about 30km away, but there is more to do around here anywere. We can be your perfect basecamp to climb Egon Volcano, to go diving and see unique underwater life as well as an japanese shipwreck just before our doorsteps. You can go on a trip to the hotsprings and take a wellness-day there, and if you are more adventurous you can go and climb up to the refresh...Our small homestay SanteSante (meaning relax, or take it easy) is situated directly at the beach.

About the neighborhood
The neighbourhood is basically the beach. We are outside of the village, just next to some other cottages along the bay. If you are grieving for cigarettes or chocolate, take a five minutes walk along the beach for the next Kios. All in all it is a very quiet place ... You won't find bars or a variation of shops ...
Getting around
Public transport is the Bemos - Minibuses. You can stop them right in front of our place. Easy. Also the Buses to the West drive by our place, you can easily catch them here. If you need transportation around Flores Island Marleno can organise a car for you or even set up a custom trip. We also rent out our (manual) motorbike or can organise an automatic one.
