Stayed with the fiancee for two days in late July 2012.
Approximately 30minute car ride from Teluk Kode harbour area, where the fastboats drop you off. Private cars will try and charge 200K rupiah for the "1.5hr ride". Can likely contact your hotel/guesthouse for a pick up ahead of time for much cheaper. In comparison, shuttle from Baleku guesthouse back to Teluk Kode and including the slow boat tickets to Gili Meno = 50K each.
Baleku guesthouse is located just south of the Sengiggi town centre. Approx 3 min by motorbike.
Clean courtyard. Restaurant has reasonably priced food. Try the grilled fish, terrific. Breakfast included.
Friendly staff and available air conditioning.
Free shuttle into town and free pick up too (driven by wife/family of owner).
Reasonably priced tours offered.
Motorbike rentals + helmets: 35K for manual, 50K for automatic.
Washroom/shower is a single room, the style of which is the type with floors slanted to drain water from both the shower and sink, into a single floor drain.
Heavy mildew/mold smell in washroom. No hot water available, at all.
Regular ant problem on and around the sink area. Found ants on our toothpaste and toothbrush at one point. To be fair, the area is surrounded by farmland and goats, cows and chickens are running around everywhere.
No towels, had to be requested. No soap provided, but never asked as we had our own.
Single bed sheet provided as blanket, requested a second.
Free Internet, but inconsistent connection.
Tolerable stay. Likely would not stay again unless disrepair and ant problem are addressed.
