“The place is magic.. if your looking for low key, hut on the beach , its exactly as the pictures show. The private outdoor stone cold (warm from sun) shower was perfecr. The water comes out of a simple bamboo pipe about 8’ up over center of area, easy big for two. Its far from the airport. But that also is what makes it special. Ricky has a suv / and driver so you can get there easy at 400bht. Each way. Ill go back for sure! Its my kind of place . Meals were great, not much else here as choice to eat, the village ( i swam there, can walk, or take kayak) was closed mostly for Ramadan till sunset. But no need go anywhere this kitchen made me variations of his menu, no problem. Tea and coffee always ready free, Ice cold beer . Cheap. Be aware they operate on a generator out here. Its not loud, back behind buildings. But you will have no power in your room from dawn till dusk. Hey, its Rusric. Price point - excellent. Comfy bed, netted as photo and a good fan for night sleeping. See all the photos, 100% accurate, but i didn’t get that wave, comes and goes with swell, it takes a direct hit to get good id say. Swimming very good, snorkel is good early. Reef is pretty healthy, lots of small fish and a turtle around. Evening in the cabana , eating area, good conversation, and some guitar / vocal talent as well. Thanks staff, you were great and made me laugh often. Paul- Hawaii”
Place to remember, located in the center of city Padang Indonesia
“A great place to stay for a cozy night. Shopping outlet and branch of local brand frm Bukit Tinggi is available within the vicinity with choices and good bargain. Banking facilities, laundries for foreigners are just reachable.”
my place is located on the banks of the city center, 600 M to the beach. 2 Km to the market, easy access to public transportation, quiet and comfortable, just a one-way trip from the Airport by Bus. Great view from the rooftop, close to the bus stop
“One of the loveliest rooms I have ever been at is Ariza’s Quini81 homestay. My second visit (booked for entire January)and here I successfully fulfilled my beautiful hope dream and promise to my future wife whom I married as I stayed at Quini81. In fact, we spent our first night together at Quini81!! Ariza and wife also honored me by taking my family’s place at my wedding! has been a lucky room for me. When it rains it is beautiful to watch cloudy skies the vegetation, the sunset also makes for a very relaxing evening with some Bobby Hackett and Jackie Gleason famous Night Love easy listening album to feel a velvet touch to everything. If Ariza can add a couple of touches to the homestay, make this particular room for a romantic long term stay in Indonesia and with the location and Padang cuisine one cannot simply go wrong. Thank you dear friend Ariza.”
