Little Pond Homestay – Sanur, Bali, Indonesia

Little Pond Homestay Sanur Bali Indonesia

Little Pond Homestay Little Pond Homestay

The Little Pond Homestay was not only one of the nicest places we stayed at during our trip to Bali, but also the cheapest place we stayed at in all of Bali.

Finding this place isn’t the easiest thing to do considering it’s tucked down on small side road that runs off of the main road in Sanur (JL Tamblingan), but down let that discourage you from hunting down this beautiful Bali homestay.


Although Little Pond Homestay is set back from the street, it still lies in a prime location in central Sanur. It’s just ten minutes walking distance from the turquoise waters of Sanur Beach, thirty minutes drive by taxi to Kuta (<80,000 IDR based on two occupants), there’s plenty of excellent dining options within walking distance, and best of all it’s the cheapest place to stay in town!

Little Pond Homestay Pool This place is such a gem that I was hesitant to even mention it. The last thing I’d want is for this place to become another “Lonely Planet” guesthouse that becomes worn down and exhausted. At the same time, I know that many people are looking for clean and decent accommodation in Bali and that can sometimes be hard to find. Believe me, I’ve experienced this first hand.


Swimming Pool, Room Service, Laundry & Dry Cleaning Service, Doctor on-call & Medical Assistance, Spa & Massage on-call, Transport Service, Parking Area, and even FREE Wi-Fi which can be tough to come by in Bali.

    I might go to Bali very soon. This place has a SE Asia price! I didn't know Bali was quite so cheap. Thanks a lot for the information!

      Good luck Sabina! The truth is, Bali is NOT normally this cheap. As I said in the article, this place is such a gem. Generally speaking I found accommodation in Bali terribly expensive if you want to find something half way decent. Don't even bother staying in Kuta, you'll get nothing for your money. Take my advice and stay in Sanur, it's about the same distance from the airport and much nicer than Kuta. Kuta can always be reached by taxi if you want to go down and check it out, do some shopping, etc.

    This place made me long to go back to Bali. We definitely had a similar experience in Ubud where we went down a narrow street and found the most beautiful homestay for 200,000 including breakfast. But we stayed away from the south b/c we heard it was so much more expensive.


      Dec 26, 2010 at 12:17 PM

      Thanks for sharing… I'll be posting another review on a place to stay in Ubud. Stay tuned!

    Thanks a lot for this piece of information. I was worried about dingy guesthouses!

    Because i am doing quiet a bit of traveling this year, I am gonna come back to your site more often!

    Do you recommend hiring a car and self-drive, or hire a driver to get around Bali?

    Thanks again!

    Wow! This place is so cheap even for SE Asian standards. And I’m from the Philippines where accommodations are usually dirt cheap. We are definitely gonna check this place when we visit Bali this July. Thanks for the tip!

      Yeah, tell me about it! Not only was it cheap, but it was such a great place to stay. It was one of the gems of Bali, that’s for sure. Thanks for stopping by!

    I have been searching home rentals in Bali for our annual vacation to SE Asia and this is our first choice. This is a great price with a pool that is close to the nightlife in Kuta and the temple ceremonies in Ubud. Gonna call my travel agent now and book our flight for this Spring!

    I’ve been planning a trip to Bali for a while now. Looks like it’ll actually happen next year (I got sidelined by a destination wedding in Jamaica). This sounds like the perfect spot. Small, cheap, and maybe even social (???) for me. But pretty and close to everything else for the princess. The photos are stunning as well.

    But as I look around online, it seems like Bali is the most popular destination in Indonesia. One of the commenters (nany) has a good point: what else is good in Indonesia? I’ve thought about relocating there to teach a little English. Any thoughts?
