Reviewed 12 September 2010

The owner tries to make guests feel at home so they can come in and make tea and come into the kitchen as if they were at home. Very relaxed and there are many interesting things to see and do in the area. The food is delicious too. One of the highlights of my trip.

I had planned to stay here for two days but ended up staying for three weeks. Very relaxing place with nice food and great prices. I'm definitely going back!

The homestay is not in Bayur, but just after it (as you come from Maninjau). There is a little sign pointing towards it from the road (with a rumah makan across the other side of the road). The inn is right on the edge of the lake and you have to walk through a rice field to get to it. I love that it is off the road, because it was SO quiet. The nearest mosque is a few kms away, so no loudspeaker chanting at 6am either! Paradise!

There are five rooms – four in a row, and one detached bungalow. The four cost 30,000 per night and the bungalow cost 50,000. The rooms were very clean and basic. They have carpet on the floor and cheery bed-spreads but, of course, the beds are rock hard. Two of the rooms share a bathroom, (1 & 2), the third room has an asian toilet, and the fourth a western one. There is cold water in the bathrooms and no showers (except in the third room).

If you really want a quiet night’s sleep I would suggest trying to get room number 4. The bungalow is also quiet (worth checking out just to see that big coral colored bath – with no way of getting water into it!). Beware of the toilet in the bungalow though – good luck getting it to flush! All the bathrooms are basic, very basic!

There is a little café at the inn – with the normal fare, very well cooked by Boy, who pretty much runs the place. All the staff (just 3), are really, really friendly. It has a beautiful, small landscaped garden and the surrounds are kept very tidy. There is a little canoe and also one of those large rubber tyres that you can float around in on the lake - watching the fishermen hard at work.

I stayed here for six weeks and it was a fantastic place to stay.
