We wanted a quiet base close to the beach and good food, but easy enough to get into Seminyak and stayed in the Bingin Suite of Mote Surf Stay for 3 weeks in November through to mid December. We were older than most other guests (an international group of young avid surfers) but are young at heart and love the sea, and were delighted to be in this great, friendly, relaxed environment. The Bingin Suite has its own kitchenette in addition to outdoor bathroom and was perfect for our needs. We used wifi in the communal area and the pool was perfect for a morning or evening dip. It was a 10 minute scooter ride to the surfing beaches of Batu Balong and Echo and Bali's fantastic food has found its way to Batu Balong in recent years, including delicious salads and wraps from Betelnut, authentic pastries from French baker M Spoon, tasty inexpensive nasi padang at Bu Mi, and great seafood at Echo Beach, and the list is growing. Mote and Martha have done a great job in creating this super chilled out, beautifully landscaped corner of Batu Bolong. The atmosphere is friendly and respectful and it was a joy to come back to after negotiating the traffic jams of Seminyak. Although most other guests seemed to be there to surf, we did not feel out of place at all and were certainly very welcome. Mote himself is a highly experienced surfer and also gives surf classes. One of us took a class and felt that as a novice, he could not have been in better hands. We would stay here again and highly recommend Mote Surf Stay to anyone looking for simple and good quality accommodation in Canggu with essential services and comfort but no frills.
