“OMG what an amazing place. We warmly recommend it and will be back!! We came to the Tulamben / Kubu area on a family diving trip, and this house was perfect for our needs. Tulamben & Kubu are remote quiet and essentially undeveloped - polar opposite of the craziness of Denpasar, Kuta or Ubud. Most visitors come here on a day trip to dive the USAT Liberty wreck, while some stay a couple nights locally for more diving. The house is like-new, on waterfront pebble beach. Manicured landscaping. Sunrises to die for. The house is sits within a newer development that includes a few private houses, and adjoins the Kubu Indah resort. Resort is small and premium, and open to Villa Pantai's guests. You can use their PADI dive center, bar, restaurant (which is very good and affordable). House staff was super attentive, as the house & yard were cleaned every day. The driver Bawa adds huge value, for not only arranging airport pickups, but also for offering 1/2 day or full day chauffeur services to visit the island. He has a brand new car and his fees are EXTREMELY affordable. We found that diving in the morning and touring the island with Bawa in the afternoon was perfect for us. As for diving, we chose the pricey convenience of diving with the adjoining Kubu Indah resort. They typically post 3 dives/day. Most dives require a quick shuttle ride, although the resort's local reef & dropoff ranked very high for me. Their PADI divemasters are locals, and did a good job. Caveat is that Kubu Indah's dive center can be premium priced (although the free nitrox and 25% prepay payment helped a bit... Their price also includes all rental equipment). Overall, Villa Pantai was perfect for our needs of seclusion, space and comfort, easy access to a PADI dive resort, world class diving, and 24/7 access to a driver. This is a well deserved 5-Star review!”
Discover a tranquil coastal retreat with glorious views across the Lombok Strait. The fully air-conditioned villa is spacious and elegant with flowing indoor-to-outdoor living areas and a private 1400 sqm garden. While the villa is perfectly located for some of the best scuba diving in Bali, it's the simple things that will make your holiday memorable. The spectacular sunrises, a dip in the private pool after dark with the floodlit coconut palms overhead, cooking freshly caught mahi-mahi from the fishermen in front of the villa, and of course, the gorgeous smiles of the Balinese people.
“Our trip to Kubu lived up to expectations. We were seeking an experience away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist locations on Bali and we can happliy report that we found it at Andy and Sue's villa. The villa was comfortable and clean with a beautiful outlook over the Bali Sea. Mt Agung looms up behind the villa and you can get a clear view of it in the mornings. The pool was a welcome repsite from the heat of the day as we alternated from sun bed to pool between book chapters and games of Scrabble. There is a modest range of books and games available however English books are limited. The villa itself is remote, so take on board the advice to pick up sundry items at a supermarket on the trip from the airport. The recommended driver, Ricky is very helpful and will get you where you need to go. The resort next door has a nice restaurant and pool side bar where you can have a good feed and refreshing cocktail while you watch the fishing boats come and go. The local fishermen are happy enough to take you out to drop a line for a modest fee. If you are not into diving there is not much to do other than unwind and relax with a book and Bintang or cocktail. Naturally, you can book a trip to Ubud and do any of the adventure activities and the villa provides a good base for this. The inhouse massage service is very good and recommended. Final comments, pack a soft folding esky, pick up plenty of snacks, breakfast food, slab of Bintang and you should be set. Remember your sunscreen and hat and take that book you have been wanting to read for the last six month.”
Kin Homestay has 1 house located behind our family home. Kin Homestay is perfect for guests who are happy with tranquility, comfort and want to see how family life in East Bali is. Our family is happy to welcome guests from all over the world and mingle with our family.
“We had such a great stay at Kin Homestay. The little villa is faultless, there is a beautiful private garden with a well-equipped outside kitchen and seating area (including tea, coffee and sugar which was a lovely surprise!) excellent WiFi, air con, a big comfy bed, a semi outdoors bathroom with toiletries and even a rack to dry wet clothes. Wayan and Nyoman have really thought of everything for their guests, they know how to make you feel comfortable. The property itself is just outside Amed, in the village of Chulik. It’s a lot more quiet and less touristy, and is on the main road to Tulamben which was perfect for us as we were diving. Thank you Wayan, Nyoman and family for your kind hospitality. Hopefully see you next time :) Claire & Nick.”
