Dau Homestay

Great views, but must love dogs

More on Amlapura

Dau Homestay is a quirky one room family-run homestay taking over the entire top floor of a two-storey home, smack bang in the middle of a rice field. Large picture windows on both sides bring the rural outdoors in.

Travelfish says:

The room is large and spotless with some unusual features — a long, high bench under the window is half storage/magazine rack and half high lounge chair — it’s odd, but a good spot to stretch out and enjoy the view. For low-rise seating there is a couple of regular wooden chairs and a small table fashioned from the cross-section of a tree. A comfortable wooden bed has a mosquito net and clean modern-patterned linen. A bed lamp and switches are within easy reach. The standard fan may not be needed as the room gets lovely cool cross-breeze. A small attached kitchenette has a fridge and utensils, but no stove. The hot-water bathroom with a bath tub is surrounding by a curtained picture window which can be opened for an au naturel experience — please don’t shock the neighbours! Bathroom tiles are old and stained, but clean. An oversized Juliet-style balcony provides an outside area for absorbing the bucolic ambiance.

The friendly owner has a number of small yappy dogs, which live downstairs, so if you’re not dog lover, this place may not be for you. We thought it was a little overpriced, but the owner was very accommodating and up for negotiation, partially for a longer stay. Dau Homestay is accessed via a narrow rice field path alongside Good Karma Restaurant — it’s about 100 metres from the main road.

Sally spent twelve years leading tourists around Indonesia and Malaysia where she collected a lot of stuff. She once carried a 40kg rug overland across Java. Her house has been described as a cross between a museum and a library. Fuelled by coffee, she can often be found riding her bike or petting stray cats. Sally believes travel is the key to world peace.
