Friendly beach huts
Cute bamboo and thatch huts at Musa Homestay occupy an idyllic location, shaded by coconut palms, a stone’s throw from beautiful Kerewee Beach.
Five rooms offer the same (high) per person rate, and are unevenly distributed between the two huts — one with a single room, the other with four, making one a much better deal than the alternative (we’ll let you work out which). Basically a surf crash pad, there’s just a mattress on the floor with a mozzie net. The single room provides fake grass coloured carpet as a buffer from the bamboo floor. There’s no power, but a jerry-rigged battery and light bulb system provides evening illumination. A communal mandi and separate Western-style bucket-flush toilet share a block behind the huts. The family are extremely hospitable, and one son is a keen surfer and can show you the ropes (his picture is on all the posters, signage and their business card). One of the other kids will happily climb and procure you a coconut for a few thousand rupiah. A simple village shop selling basic needs is opposite. Meals are included. As with pretty much everywhere on this part of the coast, there’s no WiFi and limited phone signal. Musa Homestay follow the local extreme pricing system. For a better value beach hut (but not as nice a beach), head to Joni Homestay at Waihura Beach.

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.
