Little Pond Homestay

Reviewed 18 October 2012

I have never stayed there, but know the place and know friends who stayed there and they were all happy. It is located very central and quiet. Prices are fair and reasonable and you get vouchers for a breakfast in one of their restaurants.

Stayed: October 2012, travelled with friends

We stayed here in June this year for a split week with our 3 yo, (some time was spent in Ubud).
I have hesitated about reviewing this place..... why ??? For selfish reasons of course!!
With 15 rooms surrounded by lush gardens and, around a lovely pool of ample size for the size of the "complex", each with it's own little terrace outside. Rooms are basic ranging from room with fan and cold water, or with hot water, rooms with AC and hot water, with or without TV..... I think the most expensive room was $25!
The location was perfect right in the heart of it all, but off the street, so away from the traffic with many places to eat, drink, and shop
Breakfast can be bought with a voucher for a very small fee approx $3 at Street Cafe, (on the main street, at the top of the lane), or you can choose from an abundance of other places to breakfast. Our faves are Smorgas, further up towards Hardy's, and Maya's Coffee and Juice Bar in Jl Pantai Sindu, (awesome everything with free wifi laptops included).

The staff at Little Pond are very friendly and are always working hard..... they were happy to help out with questions and there was a fridge with cold drinks, and a warung a few steps away.
Don't get me wrong, this is not luxury Bali..... but it is true Bali, home stay style. It is clean, the rooms don't smell, they are actively aired ,sheets and towels maybe grey but they are clean.
We have been to Bali many times and we have found that home stays are the way to go if you like a cheaper, more budget style holiday and allow you to experience something a little more "cultural"...

I wouldn't hesitate to return, and as the last reviewer says, it is often booked out as it is very popular with families backpackers, couples & singles alike. Would be a great place to stay with friends too and was female traveler friendly. Two older women were staying there separately and felt quite safe.
Would happily recommend......

Room Tip: room 9.... only one with it's own terrace, all the others are joined with the next room. having...

Recently stayed here for a week. I had wanted to stay for longer but unfortuntately it was booked out.
Yes - it's a budget place, so no expectations of 5 star luxuries, but an excellent little place
It's a great little place with around 15 rooms all surrounding a central courtyard and pool. The location of Little Pond is brilliant - right in the middle of things at the market end of Jalan Danau Tamblingan. It's down a drive way so it's really private. The staff are really great too.
You really couldn't ask for better value for money.
Next time I'm back in Sanur I'll definitely be trying to stay here again.

Little Pond was a great place to stay. We probably could've saved a couple of bucks by not having a tv because the reception wasn't so great, but for 250k per night it was still a bargain.

The pool was small but enough to get in and have a soak after a long day out walking.

I felt the staff could only clean so much, but the rooms could do with a lick of paint and the linen is about ready to be replaced. Although it was clean there were a few stains on the bed sheets.

The staff were wonderful and willing to help with any issues. I watched them help other (elderly) guests often and always with a smile and without complaint. Well if they had any I couldn't tell seeing as my Balinese sucks lol.

Being tucked away down a short laneway it was a nice quiet stay.

If you are looking for a budget stay that is comfortable and well l located I would recommend Little Pond Homestay.

We stayed here for a few nights in AC room with hot shower and TV.

Bed sheet has dirty spot here and there. It doesn't look clean at all.

The toilet is dirty too. Mould grow between the tile. And it stinks.

The price is 250k Rupiah. It is cheap and it is quite fair to get a room like tat.

The people working in the homestay are very polite and provide good service.

I stayed only night at the Little Pond. I got the room with AC, hot water and tv. I didn't really need that but it was the only room avaliable and overall it was good value. I did not use AC, the TV did not really work, but the hot shower with a good pressure was really pleasant.
Sheets and blankets were shabby, grey and with old spots (however I believe they had been washed). Every room has a very nice outside porch with chairs, and there is a little pool surrounded by trees which gives a relaxing feel to the place. A plus is also the free wi-fi working very well.
