Spacious private space nestled in the home of a Balinese Hindu family which lends you the opportunity to witness and immerse yourself in the lifestyle of pure locals. The room is in the bohemian surf town, Canggu, 5 min walking from Batu Bolong beach, near shops and restaurants.
The space is within the boundaries of the owners' home (rather than independent from it) which allows the visitors to interact with the locals on a daily basis. In this way, they can have unique, culturally-immersive experience - learn cooking traditional Balinese dishes, learn making Hindu offerings, help in the farming. To virtually meet the family and for more info on some of the activities we can help you get engaged in while you are in Canggu, check out when dot in dot Bali
Guests can participate in ceremonies, help in the preparation of offerings, learn cooking while helping in the kitchen. Guests have access to the kitchen so they can prepare their own food. They can also access the common area of the home where at the end of the day the whole family, along with friends, gathers together and shares their daily experience.
Interaction with guests
The guests can interact with the hosts as they please. The mother works at a local warung (small shop) at the beach so you can interact with her either when she is at home or when she is working. The dad works as a surf instructor so same applies to him. Both of them know a little bit of English yet you are encouraged to learn the local language if you want to make the most out of your experience. The family is pretty happy to help you (you can see my blackboard with Bahasa words in one of the pictures :) As for the two beautiful and ambitious daughters (25 and 17), you can have a friendly chat (in English) with them any time you see them around (after work or school). On the other hand, if you have some English teaching experience and would like to interact with local kids, you are welcome to bring your know-how and we can organize English classes in different spots in the neighborhood.
Other things to note
Please disregard the second mattress. Nevertheless, the bed is pretty spacious so 3 people can easily fit
No noise after 11 pm as the family wakes up really early (5:30) in order to do their daily tasks.
