Some would enter Homestay Gede II and use the word charming to describe the atmosphere here, but it may give the impression that it is without flaw and has some neat comforting touches.

It has neither of these and the word character is more apt. The rice barn bungalows are very basic, but the additions by surfers over the years, such as old couches, makes them feel strangely less basic than they actually are. The bathroom is the mandi variety and the toilet is western-style, but with mandi flush. The twin beds are comfortable enough, don't have mosquito nets and there is no fan. Breakfast is not included and it's a 2km walk to the main surf break, but there are rumours that the break 100m across the ricefield in front of the homestay is surfable. One could live the simple life here for under US$8 per day with all meals included — it almost seems too good to be true!
