I stayed here for one night with my partner and parents and absolutely loved our stay. Perfect location, across the road from the beach and next to cafes. Beautiful views from our balcony overlooking the sea. The beach shack is beautiful and absolutely made the stay. This accommodation is unique in every way. Will definitely return again and again.

Lovely place, beautiful ocean view! Comes with a well equipped kitchen and bbq. A hammock where you can relax after a good walk on the beach is all you need! The owners are friendly, they keep the facilities very clean. You can do your laundry, parking space is provided. It is a bit of a walk up to the highest... More

What a fantastic place! Brilliant views of the sea and beach from an enormous balcony. Very tastefully done in traditional Balinese style. Lovely spacious apartment with traditional fans and verandah Windows. Polished hardwood floors and a goof outside Barbacue. 10 metres from the beach.

The Beach Shack holiday accomodation certainly measured up to the reviews here on Tripadvisor. We stayed in Shack #3 "Escape". You really feel like you are in a treehouse, with bedrooms that can be closed off with french doors and push out windows, but adjoining living areas that have no windows but wide overhangs and handy pull down sun filtering...

What a lovely break! Had a fantastic weekend in a beach shack (the beach is absolutely right, but these are no Shacks). It was wonderful just to sit on the verandah, sipping wine while the sun went down. Great atmosphere, very island ambience decor. All the mod cons, lovely bathroom, functional kitchen. Perfect position. My only niggle is the expectation... More

Dave the owner was superb in accommodating myself and partner (who has walking difficulties) and we were able to change our shack to the lower one. Excellent rooms, beautiful beds and linen,a wide balcony with BBQ. Dave is happy to recommend trips and venues to try. The pub is right next door so close to refreshment. Sunset views are beautiful.
