Photo of Harris Homestay
This neat and friendly homestay faces a pretty flower-filled garden, hidden down a quiet lane a little back from Lovina Beach.

Simple, good sized light-filled and airy rooms offer solid wooden beds with foam or lumpy kapok mattresses (much more comfortable than they sound) and mosquito nets. You’ll need to bring a sleep sheet, as only a bottom sheet is supplied. Otherwise it’s furnished with an assortment of small tables or benches with seating and a bedside table, sans reading lamp. Whitewashed walls and pale tiled floors keep the rooms cool with the help of a ceiling fan and windows (with security bars) for a bit of breeze. The super clean ensuite was the clincher for us — it shines. The shower is cold-water only, but the sun heats up the pipes to make it bearable.

A wide shady veranda furnished with tables and chairs is the place to log into the free WiFi (better signal closer to the house), enjoy your simple include breakfast, or chat to fellow travellers or the friendly German host. Harris Homestay’s peaceful homely feel and excellent central location offers great value and gives it the edge on other nearby cheapies. Bookings recommended. If a swimming pool or hot-water shower is a priority, Hotel Elsa 2 along the lane offers both.
