Sumbawa is a destination for surfing and a quiet life. Surrounded by gardens, green with tropical flowers, fruit trees and butterflies.
The top level has 360 degree ocean and mountain views. At night we put on the projector with surround sound for a film or sit back with the guitar and watch the sunset.
The shelves are full of paints and the walls covered in murals.
The open kitchen is set up with refrigeration and cooking facilities. Make yourself at home with cold beers or pots of homemade lemongrass tea on the granite bar. The outdoor kitchen has a BBQ and a wood fire oven for pizza nights and fresh bread. You can relax in the private outdoors shower surrounded by ferns, passionfruit and bougainvillea vines. Or wake up early and watch the fishing boats with their baskets of fish returning from a night at sea. The fishermen sell the fish straight from the beach or you can head to the local fresh food and craft markets.
Downstairs we have six bedrooms, where you can escape to a quiet corner with a book. Large bamboo bed frames with fresh white cotton sheets, towels and mosquito nets. Each room has a private bathroom with clean western toilets, sinks and showers. Locally made tumeric soaps and large fans add a little luxury.
