We were impressed with the sweet cottages and welcoming staff at Come Back Guesthouse when we first popped in in February 2017, but disappointed to find they were fully booked—a good sign as they were newly opened in late 2016.

Simple solution—we had to do as the name commands and come back. Near the start of a small lane off Jalan Pantai Berawa, Come Back Guesthouse hides behind a high wall with an entrance that’s a simple modern take on a traditional Balinese gate. Beyond the doorway, a small jewel-coloured pool, lush greenery and two rows of cute-as-a-button brick bungalows face each other along the leafy garden path.

The ten bungalows are small, but interiors are not oppressive or cramped as the high traditional ceiling give the impression of space. The bright, tiled, air-con rooms feature traditional wood panels and distressed wooden framework as well as the high bamboo-lined ceiling, conveying an overall rustic flavour, a refreshing change from the usually white brick boxes at this price point. Wooden whitewashed beds are available as twins or doubles, but there is no room for any extras in the smallish space. Comfy thick mattresses and smart coffee- and teal-coloured linen, bedside tables and lamps all add to the charm.

Ensuite hot-water bathrooms are outdoor style enclosing your personal mini-garden. An “anti-room” between the outdoors and the bedroom, holds the washbasin and on the other side, what looks like the beginnings of a kitchenette. Currently it’s just a bench top and sink, but with the addition of a small fridge and gas cooker, would be an ideal set-up for a longer stay.

Small private terraces are furnished with wooden chairs and tables, and hanging pot plants add to the cottage-in-a-village appeal. The plunge-size swimming pool surrounded by foliage offers a handful of sun loungers shaded by pretty temple umbrellas for the know-you’re-in-Bali experience.

Breakfast isn’t included, but is available for 25,000 rupiah. Staff are delightful and remembered us from the first visit. Come Back Guesthouse is a little far from the beach on foot, but only a short scooter ride away and we think this is great flashpacker value. If you are keen to stay, it would be wise to book in advance, but if they are full Terracotta at the end of the lane has pleasant rooms and a pool plus a dorm if you’re budget conscious and is worth considering.

Or for a more intimate guesthouse with only four rooms, Bali View Homestay a couple of kilometres closer to the beach on a lane off Jalan Pantai Berawa, offers large and similar rustic-style rooms, a cute pool and a share kitchen, however it’s a bit more of a spend.
