Buda’s Homestay

A genuine Balinese Experience.

Unique moments at Buda’s Homestay

Wow, this place is amazing and definitely something for the lone wolves beneath you. The location of this guesthouse is about a hundred meters north of the Dalem temple (‘Pura Dalem’) in Lemukih Ancient Villages. The village is protected by nine main temples that offer classical Balinese art and the uniqueness of ceremonies. You’ll find your self in the middle of nowhere surrounded by lush rice fields, jaw-dropping waterfalls and holy springs. These holy springs play important roles during ceremonies as they are believed to purify the inner and outer self.

The rooms at Buda’s Homestay are simple but decent. But truth being spoken, who needs fancy facilities if you have this one million star view and rich culture right at your doorstep?

Here, now and forever happy.

Meet your host Buda. He is an extraordinary person that has dedicated his life to the village and to achieve happiness. He loves to introduce his guests to his culture and to show them the traditional Balinese way of life. He does not have fixed room rates. He gives interested people shelter and lets them decide how much they would like to donate after their stay, “because here I have nothing but the intention of happy our guests as much as I can”.

A fellow traveller found this magical place!

All of our gratitude goes to Sven who found this little piece of paradise on earth during his vacation on Bali. He has shared his experience at Buda’s Homestay and let us use his pictures. Thanks, bro! Below is a short review from his stay translated to English. Sit back, grab a coffee and enjoy!

“We were in North Bali at the Fiji Waterfalls when we found this little Homestay in the middle of Paradise by coincidence. You can enjoy amazing rice field views and just beside the fields is a holy spring what makes this place somewhat mystical. There are no tourists, which is why the locals over there are still very loving and genuinely hospitable. Our host – Buda – took us on a secret trek through the rice fields of Lemukih to the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen in my life. After that, we were invited to take a shower in the holy spring.

In the evening Buda took us to a spot on a hill where we watched the sunset over the rice terraces. Our plan was to stay only one night but in the end, we stayed three nights. This was one of the best experiences we have had during our Bali holiday, not only because of the stunning setting but also because of the lovely host who invited us to peek into the Balinese religion and culture.

Everyone who seeks a genuine and original Bali experience should stay at least one night at “Lemukih Ancient Village” Homestay and trek the waterfalls with Buda. I was so happy staying there. In the end, I gladly paid for this great stay. I could choose how much I wanted to pay.”

  1. My favorite homestay in Bali!

    I had an amazing time at Buda’s homestay. The family is extremely nice and the location just wonderful. You won’t find any luxury, but a clean cozy room in the middle of rice fields and the jungle.
    If you’d like to visit the Northern part of Bali with it’s beautiful nature (especially the waterfalls!) and experience Balinese family life with great food and other cool guests, you should come here!

  2. Unity of great hospitality, amazing nature and spirituality

    Just can agree with previous reviews, staying with Buda’s family was the highlight on my trip to Bali. I think there’s no other place, where hospitality, amazing nature and spirituality are united in that way. Definitely a must see.

  3. Wunderbarer Ort auf Bali, sehr zu empfehlen

    Was für ein wunderbarer Ort! Sehr nette und freundliche Gastfamilie, einfache, aber sehr saubere Unterkunft, gutes und gesundes Essen. Alle Wünsche werden erfüllt! Besuche zu den nahen Wasserfällen Fiji und Sekumpul sind sehr zu empfehlen, ebenso die Wanderung durch die umgebenden Reisfelder.
    Buda und seine Familie sind sehr um das Wohl der Gäste bemüht. Danke, dass ich euch kennenlernen durfte. Ich werde euch wieder besuchen.
    Allen, die eine ruhige Umgebung suchen und die das typische Leben auf Bali abseits der Touristenorte erleben möchten, sei ein Besuch in Buda’ s Homestay in Lemukih empfohlen.

  4. Great Host!

    What a wonderful Place! Budda and his family were so nice and always caring about us. They are very generous People. Thank you so much for these two unforgetable days!

  5. The only place worth visiting in Bali

    Some would say simple, no comfort and boring because there are no restaurants or bars. I SAY: It is the best place we found in Bali!!!! Amazing surrounding, chillout-gazebos (where you can listen the jungle noises in the evenings), lovely decorated bungalows, palatable food, tasty mangosteen or ginger tea and balinese coffee. The jungle tour to the ricefields and waterfalls was breathtaking. Away from the tourits flows you can imagine how beatiful Bali is.
    Thanks and all the best wishes for Buda and his family!!

  6. Best experience you can get if you wanna see the true Bali

    Even if everybody says you won’t have any luxury there and it is simple… I think it is amazing! The room was so clean and nicely arranged! Buda and his family took the best care of us.
    They fulfilled every wish we had and we had the chance to get a glimpse in the true balinese lifestyle.
    Yes, the room is not big, the shower is cold, and there are a lot of small animals you hear through the night 😉 But actually we had our most relaxed and best time during our whole time on Bali!
    Whenever I am there again I will visit Buda and his family!

  7. Just perfect

    Just perfect

  8. We woke up in the middle of a beautiful scenery surrounded by rice fields and the forest. Buda and his family are exceptionally kind and helpful and made this the best night we had in Bali.
    If we ever come back to Indonesia this will most definitely be one of our stops.
    The tour to the waterfalls and through rice fields was also beautiful and our tourguide was very sweet and funny.
    So all in all we would recommend this place to everyone.

  9. Amazing experience

    Such a wonderful experience – fantastic area, stunning view, such lovely people and great food too! Simple and just amazing.

  10. What a place!

    I had a incredible time with Budha and his family. This stay was the highlight of my trip to Bali and Flores. Thank you so much! I can highly recommand to go there!

  11. Absolute Must while in Bali!

    Our stay with Buda was definitely one of the absolute highlights of our trip to Indonesia. Buda and his family made us feel at home instantly and did everything they could to accomodate us.

    Buda took us to see the waterfalls in the area and explained a lot about the area while we were hiking here. We had a lot of fun and shared many laughs together.

    His wife cooked breakfast, lunch and even dinner for us and it was delicious every time – it’s a great feeling to be eating rice that grew in the ricefields right in front of your eyes 🙂

    We also met Buda’s daughters who were simply charming and practiced their English skills with us.

    All in all, we had the best time at Buda’s Homestay and we will be sure to come again, once we’re back in Bali. It’s just a great way to explore the untouched Bali – far from tourist centers such as Ubud and meet lovely people such as Buda along the way!

  12. Ein Paradies auf Erden

    Man weiß gar nicht wo man anfangen soll. Bei unserer Ankunft, die Buda für uns organisierte, wurden wir von der Familie herzlichst, wie noch nie zuvor begrüßt. Ich habe noch nie in meinem Leben zuvor eine so nette und freundliche Familie kennen gelernt. Buda und die ganze Familie bemühten sich sehr, dass es ihren Gästen in der Zeit an nichts fehlt. Es wurden täglich super leckere Mahlzeiten für uns zubereitet, alle Fragen wurden beantwortet und alle Wünsche wurden erfüllt. Auch über die Zeit hinaus, konnten wir Buda erreichen und hat uns geholfen unseren Baliaufenthalt super zu gestalten.

    Den Ausflug den wir mit Buda machten war traumhaft. Er angagierte alles, wir mussten uns weder um Eintrittspreise noch um die Verpflegung kümmern. Er zeigte uns wunderschöne Reisterrassen, traumhafte Wasserfälle und besuchte mit uns die natürlichen Wasserrutschen. Immer wieder sagte er uns wir sollen uns Zeit nehmen es ist unsere Zeit, vom üblichen Touri-Stress keine Spur. Nicht einmal hatten wir bei Buda und seiner Familie das Gefühl von Stress.

    Der Abschied fiel nach nur 3 Tagen irgendwie schwer.
    Bezahlt wurde erst nachdem ich Buda kurz von der Abreise mehrmals frage was mit der Bezahlung ist (wir hatten uns quasi schon verabschiedet). Er wollte keinen bestimmten Betrag er zählte nichts nach. Man merkt das es ihm und seiner Familie einzig und allein darum geht das seine Gäste einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt haben. Und das war er definitiv.

    Danke an Buda und die gesamte Familie für die schönste Zeit in Bali.

  13. Paradise

    Unser Aufenthalt bei Buda war einfach überwältigend.
    Bereits die Kontaktaufnahme über Whatsapp funktionierte unkompliziert und auch der Transfer von unserem Hotel in Ubud wurde von Buda super organisiert.

    Das Homestay ist zwar sehr einfach, aber die Familie tut wirklich alles, damit man sich rundum wohl und wie zuhause fühlt. Die angrenzenden Reisfelder laden zu einem kleinen Spaziergang ein und wir haben die Ruhe und die Natur hier sehr genossen. Bei Buda kann man wirklich abschalten und entspannen!

    Außerdem wurde für uns eine Tour zu den Sempukul Wasserfällen mit privatem Guide organisiert.
    Die Wasserfälle sind keineswegs überlaufen und einfach atemberaubend.
    Ein weiterer Höhepunkt waren die natürlichen Wasserrutschen (Water Slides). Unser Guide Yudi war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

    Jeden Abend wurde von Budas Frau und deren Tochter Marie ein köstliches Essen zubereitet.
    Auch das Frühstück war sehr gut und immer frisch.

    Buda erfüllte uns alle Sonderwünsche ohne Wimpernzucken und hat auch unsere Weiterreise nach Amed zu einem unschlagbaren Preis organisiert.

    Lehmuki ist ein wahrer Geheimtipp für alle, die das authentische Bali abseits des Massentourismus erleben wollen.

    Vielen Dank für die tollen zwei Tage!!

  14. Authentic Bali in the middle of paradise!

    I could write a long review about our experience at Buda’s and talk about every magical experience. But instead I’ll second the words of those before me and not explain everything in detail. What I will say is that if you are hesitant about getting away and off the grid for a few days, don’t be! Spend more than one night to truly emerse yourself in what Buda and his family have to offer. We stayed 3 nights and it was by far the highlight of our 3-week trip to Indonesia! You get attentive service, amazing home cooked meals, most beautiful scenery, a personalized waterfall experience and a true sense of village life and learn about the people and culture. Get away from the hectic tourist pace and relax! Stay and you won’t regret it!!

  15. Most beautiful Homestay of Bali!

    My friend and I stayed two nights at Buda’s homestay and the days with him and his wonderful family turned out to be two of the best days in my life so far! Buda and his family life in the midst of a lush green rice terrace with beautiful plants everywhere, you genuinely feel like you’re in paradise! When we arrived at Buda’s place we were welcomed very warm-heartedly and immediately felt at home! Buda’s wife provided us with the most delicious food, tea and fried banana all around the clock. The second day of our stay, Buda organized a trip with us to the Lemukih waterfalls which was stunning! We walked trough the jungle to the waterfalls and lunch in the warung “Fiji” afterwards. We also went to a natural waterslide and had a lot fun there! I’ll never forget the time with Buda and his family and I am more than grateful for all the experiences I’ve gathered! Love, Marie

  16. Lovely stay at Buda's Homestay

    Me and my boyfriend stayed three nights at Buda’s Homestay and had a wonderful time. Buda and his family was the most lovely host a visitor could imagine. We organized everything for us, from transportation to a hiking tour on Mount Batur. We even got a private tour to the waterfalls, organized by him and we did not even planned on doing it. It was such an amazing tour though and the people we met that day were super friendly. I think it was the best location we could stay at to explore the beautiful north of Bali. We lived in the middle of the rice terraces and natur, however the rooms were super clean and the beds super comfortable. I would highly recommend this place to stay for a few nights.

  17. Don't miss it!

    Buda’s Homestay is exceptional. Buda, his family and his friends were the loveliest people I ever met in a homestay. He welcomed us warmheartedly and we had some tea and fried banana with him and his family and friends. The next day he took us to an amazing waterfall tour, as described in the other reviews. In the evening, we had some Bintang with him and we talked a lot about different cultures and he explained everything about his culture.
    Buda and his family also provided every meal for us. The room we had had a western toilet and was simple but carefully and lovingly furnished.
    We think it has been our best stay in Bali and would recommend to everyone to take this adventure and the chance to meet Buda. 🙂

  18. Best experience!

    We organized for Buda to show us the ricefields and the waterfalls.
    It was such a wonderful day! A driver from our hotel in Lovina drove us there and then Buda and a friend brought us into the ricefields by scooter. Our first stop was a little Warung where we got fresh coconuts and could swing over the ricefields! (Best view ever!). He told us a lot about the area and the life there.
    Then we continued on foot to the waterfalls. Buda was very attentive and so nice and friendly and gave us all the time we wanted to appreciate the great spots he took us to. He took a lot of lovely fotos and videos of us. After we climbed all the steps back up again, we had a lovely lunch in a treehouse with the most beautiful view you can imagine!
    Since we only booked the “half day trip” our time with Buda was supposedly over, but we extended our visit and went to the waterslides with him. To get there, we drove through the beautiful ricefields by scooter and it was simply stunning!
    The slides where of course a lot of fun, and again everyone was very attentive and friendly.
    All in all, it was a super great trip and the best outing we did in north Bali! I would recommend this to everyone! Don’t miss out on this experience and Buda’s hospitality!
    Thank you Buda, for a day we will never forget!
    Janna and Daniel

  19. Authentic Bali

    I want to recommend this place to absolutely everyone I know! Buda and his family are so friendly and welcoming. Expect to be treated a bit like a family member. The Homestay is in the middle of nowhere so it’s quiet and there is beautiful nature and rice fields all around. Buda will take you to see the stunning waterfalls and in other tours if you stay a bit longer. If you are looking for an authentic Bali experience this is your place!!!

  20. Awesome, authentic, absolutely perfect! Don’t miss that experience!

    I don’t know if I can describe this place! The family is more then likeable, they are everytime there for you and make your stay as comfortable as you can imagine! You will feel like a part of the family and you will learn a lot about the balinese culture. The rooms are prepared with love, like everything else here! The surrounding is like a paradise! We are so glad that we could stay here, it was the most authentic and also the best time we had on Bali!
    Buda organized a trip to really impressive waterfalls for us and also the transport to our next stay (there was a visit in a Tempel with local guide included)! There are any little cottages which invite you to relax and to enjoy the great view, you can take a natural shower close to the ricefields, you can practice yoga or meditation at this magical place….And you have to try the luwak coffee here ( they collect it in the wild nature and prepare it by themselves, so no worries about the cats! Thank you Buda!)
    If we will come back to Bali, we will come back to Buda‘s Homestay and we will recommend it, of course! Thank you for this experience and thank you for giving us so much!

  21. Getting to know the "real" Bali

    Our time in Lemukih was definitely the best we had during our holiday in Bali!
    Buda and his Family are wonderful people and their home is just beautiful.
    It was an amazing experience to get away from the big tourist spots in Bali and live in the jungle with Budas family.
    Buda showed us the most beautiful waterfalls, rice terraces and rainforest areas.

  22. Our happy place

    Actually we didn’t want to leave this place because it was the best time we’ve had in Bali. It’s the real Bali – simple, but because of that and the nature – you live in between ricefields and jungle – so special and magical. Buda and his family are such warmhearted and friendly. You feel as a member of them. They really care for you. We’ve got breakfast, lunch, dinner, fruits in between, tea, coffee, everything you need. The trips Buda organized for us were inspiring. We’ve been to the waterfalls that are just WOW. And Buda himself is inspiring and spiritual as well. You learn so much from him about the way how Balinese see life and also about yourself. Thank you, Buda, for the experiences, we will never forget.
    Gede, a family member and our driver in this time, is also so warmhearted and friendly. He showed us a lot of temples and special places in Bali and explained Bali culture so well to us. Thank you, Gede, for your great company.
    Hopefully we can come back sometime!

  23. Most inspiring place ever seen

    We planned to stay only one night at Buda’s but extended our stay to three nights the moment we arrived. This place is beautiful: We enjoyed the view over the ricefields and the natural shower down at the spring. Buda himself is inspiring! You immediately feel welcomed. He is such a warm hearted person and a lovely host. He has so much knowledge about the culture and that place and is happy to share it with you. He has an answer to all your questions. Buda organised a trip to the waterfalls, ricefields and natural springs for us which we really enjoyed. We can totally recommend this place to everyone who wants to experience the real Balinese culture, get to know the most adorable Balinese family and see some places of Bali that are not (yet) full of tourists. Please help to keep the place the way it is.

    Thank you Buda for your hospitality, pure charisma and all the happy moments we shared. We will often think about you and hope to meet you again one day!

  24. Genuine Bali experience

    We have heard of Buda and Lemukhi from a friend. Wanted to have some genuine experience of Bali and thats exactly what we got!
    Buda is the most joyfull, hospitable and helpful person I have meet on Bali. His happiness and peacefulness really touches you. He is a great host with his family and friends, made meals for us, organised a trek to see the waterfalls (which are AMAZiNG) and showed us real Bali.

    Highly recommend!

  25. Woooooowwww!

    What can I say? Buda’s Homestay is so beautiful and nice, it’s hard to describe it with words or even pictures. Actually you have to experience it.
    The place is really magical: situated next to a small river, in between beautiful rice fields and trees, it is easy to relax and find peace here. There are several spots created where you can just sit down and enjoy, not to mention a natural pool with a small waterfall. I really loved the swing on top with a fantastic view over the rice fields.
    Buda’s family does everything with so much love and passion. The food is really delicious, you get breakfast, lunch and dinner if you want. I really loved the fried banana and ginger tea in between.
    Buda organizes really beautiful and fun trips to the waterfalls nearby. And he is supporting many local people with this.
    I can say I had the best time during my Bali trip here in Lemukih. Thank you for what you are doing and the way you are doing it. You are doing a great job!
    Thank you so much for letting me be your guest and all your love. I will definitely come back some day. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


    Absolutely no words can’t ever describe this experience. Never and nowhere have we felt so much love, joy and satisfaction. We came as strangers and left as family. Buda with his arms and heart wide open will make you feel like home and bring you to all the beautiful places around his home and will take care of you exceptionally.
    You can enjoy a natural shower in the middle of ricefields, swing over the stunning green valley, listen to geckos, frogs and creeks as bedtime story and experience so much love from this wonderful family.
    We will definitely come back to this warming and magical place!
    Lena and Anna

  27. very warm and welcoming family

    we spent 3 days with Buda and really enjoyed it. The huts are very basic but clean and the view from the huts into the jungle and the amazingly beautiful rice field is more than worth it. Buda and his family are super friendly and more than engaged to make your stay as comfortable as possible. we also did a day trip to the waterfalls around lemukih which was very nice. I would recommend to go rather early in the morning (we started at 9am) in order to be the first ones at the waterfall. Lemukih got a bit famous and tourists are starting to come now. wo if you want a stunning waterfall all to yourself start your day early 🙂 food was simple but very delicious and there was always plenty of it. also try the ginger tea! 🙂
    thanks Buda and Family for the amazing stay. will definetly recommend your homestay.
    one day the water pipeline was not working so we had to shower etc. in the spring down at the river. this was very beautiful and we kept going there for the rest of the stay even when the water worked again. it was so refreshing and beautiful to shower in the nature.

  28. Our trip with Buda was just amazing. First he took us to a local Warung which had an amazing and untouched view over the rice terraces. After that we walked down to the waterfalls. He made sure we got the best view and helped us through the water. After the hike back up we had lunch at the Warung. The food was amazing and Buda told us more about the village and balinise culture. He is one of the nicest people we met on our trip and by far one of the most inspiring days. Thank you Buda for your time. We highly recommend to book a tour with him.

  29. Genuine Bali Experience in the Mountains

    Buda’s homestay is beyond comparison – his and his family’s hospitality and kindness outstanding! The homestay is located in the midst of the jungle, facing rice fields, surrounded by mountains and the sound of the nearby river and geckos.

    As a host and guide, Buda organized trips even to the top(!) of the Sekumpul Waterfalls, to a ceremony at his family temple, to the rice fields, to an instrument maker’s home in the village, to an unknown temple and more.

    Even more than for these genuine Bali experiences, I have to thank Buda for the precious moments with him and his family who made me feel at home. I’ve stayed twice during my trip and will definitely come back!

    Also good to know:
    1.) There is no WIFI in the jungle/at this place.
    2.) You decide what you want to pay in the end of your stay [Febr. 2018].

    All in all: Don’t miss this hidden gem out of the touristic places!

  30. Ein Muss für jede Bali-Reise ♥️

    Der Aufenthalt bei Budda war mein persönliches Highlight meiner Bali-Reise!

    Er und seine Familie sind sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich. Sie haben uns die komplette Gegend gezeigt, haben uns mit balinesischen Spezialitäten versorgt und uns alles ermöglicht.

    Während meines Aufenthalts bei Budda hab ich Bali-pur erlebt und das möchte ich niemals missen. Ich kann Buddas Homestay nur weiterempfehlen 🙂

  31. Just wonderful!

    We’ve had the most amazing time at Buda’s Homestay. It is newly built, rooms are basic and clean and have very comfortable beds (but only cold showers). Nights are wonderfully cool in this mountainous area of Bali. Fresh air, beautiful nature, far away from the crowds and the noise of South Bali. Buda and his family are such incredible hosts. Amazing local food with lots of snacks and fresh fruits, a lovely gazebo overlooking rice paddies, and Buda took us to all the beautiful spots nearby (waterfalls, walking around the rice fields, a water slide)… Buda was happy to share his knowledge and have long, deep conversations with us. This was by far the best experience of my time in Bali, really a non-touristic, unspoilt way to learn about Balinese culture. I can’t thank you enough, and I can’t recommend this homestay enough. Absolutely love that it’s donation based. You give what you can and what you think is appropriate. This really shows the beautiful characters of the host family. I’ll definitely be back!

  32. My favorite place in Bali! You get everything

    Staying with Buda’s family was the highlight of my two months travel in the island!

    You don’t need to do any planning, just arrive and relax, because Buda will take you everywhere and you will experience the genuine Bali with him.
    We where lucky enough to be there for Galungan, the most important festivity in Bali. They dressed us with traditional balinese clothing and took us to the temple, where they introduced us to the priest and their neighbours.
    You will find everything around Lemukih village, impressive waterfalls and fun water slides, rice fields, temples and ceremonies, traditional farmers and maybe even a delightful balinese dance performed by Buda’s daughters.

    Lemukih is out of the tourist circuit, so locals welcome you with open arms and have genuine interest in connecting with you.

    Gede’s meals are simple but always tasty, her fried banana and ginger tea are delicious!

    Her three daughters, Angel, Shri and Mari are always up to play, they love going to the waterslide and they are learning english fast and will make you laugh non stop.

    I loved it so much I went back for another visit! This family has a big heart and are really proud to share their little piece of paradise with everyone. I’m grateful for the time we shared!

  33. it's just perfect.

    I never met as lovely people as Buda and his family before. They welcome everyone so warmhearted, that you almost feel like a part of his family. Buda shows his guests some special Bali-views far away from the “normal touri stuff”, which does not mean you won’t see waterfalls and rice fields. It means, you don’t only see them, you experience them! Beside hidden water slides and funny scooter drives through the jungle you can swim under the waterfall and you’ll definitely get the best Bali-food ever (ask for the chicken soup! ;)) I don’t want to tell too much, everybody should come here to make his own experiences to get impressed!
    I stayed there twice and I would ever come back. The perfect Bali-experience and one of the highlights of my semester abroad!
    I wish you all the best, Buda! See you next time.

  34. Picture Book Bali

    Amazing stay!! We loved to sleep right in the jungle, facing ricefields, mountains and palmetrees and hear the sounds of the river and all the tropical animals. 🙂 Buda and his family were absolutely friendly, cooked delicious vegetarian meals and guided us to the most impressive waterfalls. Lemukih is a hidden paradiese, Bali at its best!! And the family took really good care of us. Highly recommending to anyone who is looking for an authentic hideaway and has no problem with a basic (but comfy and clean!!) room and indonesian toilette. I think there are two other rooms that have western toilettes.

    And: Loved that Buda has a water refill station and takes really good care of the nature!!

  35. Paradise for water-lovers

    I love water and I have been in paradise with Buda’s perfect guiding!

    The waterfalls are amazing and you can have a bath or a shower in this clean, cool water. The water-slide is amazing and so funny, too!

    Buda took me everywhere on his scooter (and this alone is an adventure). I also loved the calm of the rice fields and the swing with overwhelming view to the area.

    The food and drinks Buda prepared for me, were delicious. By the way, it’s a fruit-paradise, too.

    So thanks again for sharing your homestay and all your lovely places around there, with me!

  36. Wer ein Platz "Bali pur" erleben will, ist bei Buda genau richtig!

    Wow, ein MUSS in BALI!

    Ich suchte noch eine Unterkunft für 3 Nächte und die HSH-Girls empfahlen mir Budas Homestay.

    Ich bin so froh, denn es war einer der besten und schönsten Aufenthalte für mich und meine beiden Kids (8,10).

    Die Kids waren begeistert voneinander und spielten ab der ersten Minute trotz Sprachschwierigkeiten miteinander. Sie zeigten meinen Kids ihren “Spielplätze” z.B. den Fluss in der wunderschönen Landschaft mit seinen Naturrutschen. Ein riesiges Palmblatt, welches sie als “Schlitten” nutzen, um den Berg runterzurutschen.

    Buda zeigte uns mit seinem Freund, der ebenso Buda hieß, am 1. Tag bei einer Wanderung die Wasserfälle in der Umgebung. Die Wanderung durch die atemberaubend schöne Landschaft dauerte 3h und war gut zu schaffen für die Kids. Auf dem Rückweg begeisterte er meinen Sohn, weil er eine Kokosnuss direkt vom Baum holte und für uns öffnete. Beide Budas waren stets um uns besorgt und kümmerten sich um unser Wohlbefinden.
    Am 2. Tag fuhren wir mit Rollern zu einem weiteren Wasserfall, der nicht Touristisch erschlossen ist und auf dem Weg gab ein kleines Badbecken . Am Nachmittag zeigte uns Buda noch weitere Wasserrutschen in Fussnähe direkt vom Homestay entfernt. Ich hatte viel Spaß mit allen Kids zusammen.

    Abends zeigte uns Budas große Tochter den Balinesischen-Tanz und meine Tochter versuchte sich ebenso und wir hatten alle miteinander viel zu Lachen.

    Das Essen wurde von Budas Frau zubereitet. Wir bekamen Frühstück, Mittag und Abendessen. Typische Balinesische Speisen teils selber gekocht, teils gekauft. Und das war gut so, denn in dem Ort gab es sonst keine Restaurants.

    Der Raum inkl. Badecke war sauber und ordentlich. Es roch sogar noch ganz neu 😉 Wir hatten eine extra Matratze auf dem Fussboden.

    Es gab weit und breit kein WLAN! Was mich nicht störte, nur gut zu wissen gewesen wäre und ich daher hiermit aufschreiben.

    FAZIT: Wer ein Platz “Bali pur” erleben will, ist bei Buda genau richtig!

  37. Never forget...

    .. the days we spent with Buda, Gede and their family. It was such a lovely experience. You stay right in front of the rice fields in the middle of nowhere. Five Minutes walk from the Homestay is a natural pool and a big natural waterslide. You will have a lot of fun there!
    Buda & Gede cannot offer you a fancy room with modern facilities but they can show you a world of pure happiness and charity (by the way: the room is clean, cozy and comes with everything you need for your stay!).

    They showed us the rice fields in their village, guided us to the amazing waterfalls in the area, they climbed on palms for a fresh coconut for us. Also they offer a sweet breakfast, a fantastic lunch and you can order something for dinner if you like. They take care of everything. We even got a balinese dance from the daughters of Buda (Thank you!).

    The special thing about the homestay is the price: you decide what you want to give to Buda & Gede in the end of your stay. To be honest, it was hard to think what you pay, because you get the HSH “million star experience” and you get it with the pure heart of Buda and his family!

    To cut a long story short: It was an amazing experience full of special moments.

    Thank you and all the best

Simply because we want to make things easy for everybody. Not for every local host it’s easy to keep track of bookings and occupancy. That’s why we make it easy and simply offer bookings up on request. It takes 24 hours maximum until your booking gets confirmed – usually we are even quicker.

The standard rooms (if not described differently) are for 2 persons. However you can also book an extra bed for a third person. Once the booking request is made we will adjust the number of persons manually.

It is possible to simply book more than 1 room of the same guesthouse. Simply select your first room, enter the dates and the persons and click on ‘book now’. Furthermore go back to the guesthouse page and do the same again!

Booking Fee: 

  • To be settled after your booking has been confirmed
  • Use your preferred credit card (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX) to guarantee the booking

Remaining open balance: 

  • To be settled upon arrival at the Homestay
  • To be settled in cash using Indonesian Rupiah (IDR)

Paying with credit card is not very common in Indonesia. Apart from hotels and western restaurant cash counts. But don’t worry, ATM machines for cash withdrawal are available all over Bali and most likely you will pass one on the way to your Homestay.
