Secluded in the quiet backstreets of Sanur, Louto Dmell Homestay offers four smart spacious rooms, with four more and a swimming pool under construction when we visited in January 2017.

Rooms are in a longhouse block (the new rooms in a separate block), surrounded by grassy lawn and young trees within a walled compound. We love the quirky exterior, clad with a patchwork of locally made red bricks with recycled wood screens offering privacy to the small furnished terrace.

Cool, simply styled tiled interiors are white, bright and spotless with high ceilings and funky distressed wooden furniture which includes a wardrobe, bedside tables and small desk as well as a comfy bed. Facilities include air-con, free WiFi, a minibar well stocked with bottled water and beer (at reasonable prices), and tea- and coffee- (instant only) making equipment. Lighting, power outlets and switches are all where you want them. Ensuite hot-water bathrooms are semi-outdoors, with plants and pebbles adding to the natural effect.

Terraces are decked out with table and chairs and shaded by a sun-cloth blind, offering a lovely quiet spot to contemplate your day with something cold from the minibar, or grab a book from the book exchange in reception. The friendly owner is keen to please, but not always around, so leaves a mobile phone for guests to call him. Breakfast is not included in the rate, but is available for 40,000 rupiah for a full breakfast or you can order a-la-carte. Yoga mats are provided for free yoga on the beach (daily except Sunday).

Louto Dmell Homestay is about a 10-minute walk to the beach, and is located almost directly behind Hardy’s supermarket. Guests have reported difficulty finding the place, but if you take the lane south of Hardy’s, Gang Penjor Agung, then turn right into Jalan Bumi Ayu, the entrance is about 150 metres along. Take a torch at night, as it’s not well lit. If you’re keen for a pool and a quiet location, and can’t wait until Louto Dmell Homestay finish building theirs, Abyan Guesthouse has good, but slightly pricier rooms, with a lovely “almost rural” outlook.
