•Application based transport: Go-Jek (click Go-Car), Grab (click Grab-Car), pay cash in front, fare: as shown on your smart phone screen. I would suggest this application based-transport as most drivers are polite, more reliable than taxi driver and do not mind to go extra mile to get you to your destination.

• May I have your phone number or email? May I pay on arrival? May I see your place first? NO need as AIRBNB BLOCKS IT AUTOMATICALLY. Instead of asking for a visit, learn to trust your host from pictures and reviews. Reviews is meant to guide others. This is why you are expected to leave a review at the end of your stay
• Do I have to tip you? Not necessary. Kindly leave me a review on Airbnb as you check out. That's all. Reviews are expected from both of us to guide other travelers.

Guest access
Guests are free to access common facilities such as shower rooms, kitchen, TV lounge, backyard and front yard garden and veranda. Guest area is connected to the host’s residence by a connecting door.

Other things to note
! The mosque behind Nilaya calls for prayer 5 times a day, a typical loud call you hear in any moslem dominated country. The earliest one is at 4 am. During the fasting month and religious holiday, there will be Quran recitation. There is nothing we can do with such “noise” in this Muslim dominated country. Instead of finding it noisy and intrusive, I hope you can take it as part of your cultural immersion.

! Nilaya is not suitable for children under 3 yo.

Suitable outfit for ladies: a short sleeves T-Shirt (covering shoulder and breast) and a knee-lenght pants or medium shorts (5 cm above the knee).
