If you haven't time to read the many reviews below, here's a sample of what our guests have said:



“This place was AMAZING! Staying with Maxine and Suyanto was one of the best parts of our trip to Bali. They went above and beyond to teach us and share their Bali knowledge with us. They encouraged us to try adventurous things that created lifelong memories for us. The details and hospitality along with their beautiful home made this so special. They also arranged for us to try Kawah Ijen in Java which was such an awesome experience. They organized everything including the guide, driving, ferry ride and breakfast. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we’re so glad we did it. Having Maxine and Suyanto take us places and show us where to go, along with get us connected with the guides on the excursions we did made us feel at ease. We really felt worry free during our stay with them and only wish we could’ve stayed longer.”


“This is the accommodation you've always wanted to find but very rarely do. Maxine and Yanto are more than super hosts they are the perfect hosts! They give you just the right combination of privacy and hospitality. After an around the world trip all we wanted was to relax by the pool but we got that and so much more. On request M&Y provide the most delicious meals you could ever wish for and far, far better than a restaurant. There is a menu to choose from but we left it up to them to surprise us. Yanto's Spanish mackerel steamed in banana leaves is a taste experience we'll not forget. Lovina is a beautiful place and for us was so much better than the frantic pace of the south. If you're looking for a little taste of paradise and food to match this is the place to choose.”

"This place is truly magical! The accommodations were beautiful and posh, the hosts, Max and Yanto, were amazing people who enhanced our trip tremendously with knowledge of the area and excellent company and conversation. I can't recommend this place enough. If you want to stay in the North of Bali, you would be a fool to stay anywhere else."

"What can we say..if there is only one advise to make it'd be: book a longer than you expect first, because it's quite hard to leave this small paradise at the end! :-) Maxine and Suyanto are such lovely hosts and are looking after you and your demands at all time. Also, Suyanto is an excellent cook and if you miss his dishes, you'll probably miss the best and most fresh food on the whole island! :-) We also so enjoyed the conversations in the evenings with these two lovely people. All in all, the place is absolutely fantastic and there is not a single thing you can complain about."

"We had an amazing week at Maxines and Yantos small paradise. We can only emphasize everything positive that has already been written.The house, garden, pool and food exceeded our expectations. Maxine and Yanto did everything possible to make our stay a pleasant, interesting and relaxing one. We enjoyed the privacy we had , but also the pleasant conversations with our hosts. We highly recommend this place!"

"Kubu Kusuma & ALL that it is, is a totally unique experience. Maxine & Suyanto complement each other perfectly, providing their guests with a really relaxed stay. The house itself is beautiful, the property, a slice of paradise. I would stay here again in heart beat!"

"Our stay with Maxine and Suyanto was the highlight of our Bali trip! Not only was the place absolutely fantastic, but we could not have hoped for better hosts."


"Maxine and Yanto are a charming couple. They are dedicated to helping their guests have a wonderful holiday and get the most out of their time in Bali. They made themselves available at all times"

“This place is absolutely magical…..I highly recommend that you have Yanto prepare you a few meals while you are there, and take the class if you enjoy cooking”

“This is not just an AirBnB, it is an unforgettable experience. Maxine and Yanto go far above & beyond all expectations”

“We don't even know where to begin - if you are thinking about booking Maxine and Yantos house - DO IT - from the time we arrived to the time we left we were treated like royalty.”

“It's a private paradise, don't hesitate, just book it and enjoy….with Yanto and Maxine we got access to the interior, went to temples, waterfalls, markets, etc. It was a very nice experience to see that the real Bali still exists up here in the north”
