My girlfriend and I booked this place after reading finding it in our book and then reading the reviews on here and we couldnt be more pleased we did! We originally booked to stay a few nights but ended up staying a week! This is in no small part thanks to the couple who own the place! Gemma and Made, and indeed their staff, make this place pretty hard to fault.
The obvious downfall is the location, as you are 2km from the beach, but its hard to consider this a downfall when every time you wake up, all you need to do if you want to go to the beach is answer yes when you are asked, as you almost certainly will be before you get the chance to ask yourself! The orientation tour was fantastic, we got to see all the local beaches and the tour is also so enjoyable thanks to its guide!
We cant say enough about how much we enjoyed our time here, from getting to tag along with Gemma and her friends to just about the most beautiful beach we saw in Indonesia (Selong Blanak), to joining Made, his fishing trip customers, Gemma and her friends for a delicious Fish dinner (courteousy of the successful aforementioned fishing trip!).
Thanks guys for a great week!
