The second of the two homestays we found in the Ekas area, Tira Villa is really more a collections of simple bungalows than a homestay.
The bungalows are in two rows running back from the restaurant and are very simple fare: a modest terrace out front has a couple of chairs and there’s a bed and cold-water bathroom inside. Rooms are big enough to squeeze in a second bed if you need it. A small restaurant is open on site, but out of season (like when we visited) the fare is very limited -- the nasi goreng we were served was plain rice with ketchup and an omelette on top -- not a single veggie in sight! But the food came with a smile and this is a welcoming, family-run spot. Tira Villa claims a swimming pool on their website, but we saw no evidence whatsoever of there being one. There is a second homestay in Ekas village proper -- you’ll see a sign for it as you near the water and it is to your left (when looking at the water) near the pier. Prices are a bit steep for the standards, but budget options around here are limited.
