Kyle and I recently travel to Bali and stayed at the Coconuts Guest House in Canggu, Bali. For our vacation it was absolutely perfect. Our vacation goal was to relax as much as possible. If we were able to see some of the must see sites that would be great but in reality it was all about relaxing.
The close location to the beach and eateries made this guesthouse ideal!! Just a short walk down the road lead us to a fantastic surfing beach with a few beachside cafes. Across the street was a delicious Thai restaurant. Just a short 5 minutes drive on the motor bike took us to Echo Beach. Where we could watch the surfers or eat at places like Sticky Fingers and the Echo Beach House. On days we were feeling really lazy we would search through the pile of restaurant brochures and just have food delivered. So basically, for those of you wishing to be a bit closer to shopping and nightlife, I would suggest looking for accommodations closer to the bigger cities of Seminyak, Kuta, or Ubud. But if you are wanting a peaceful location close to the beach, Coconuts is the place for you.
We were given the best room in the house, Room #2. It had beautiful views of the rice fields and the lovely pool and garden area. Our room was huge with a comfy king size bed and spacious bathroom.
The owner, Russel, is a laid back Aussie willing to help with anything we needed. He let us borrow his phone to order food and he would call us a driver whenever we needed. He even drew us a map to help guide us on our motor bike journeys.
Overall, do not be fooled by the “guesthouse” title. Coconuts is basically a luxury four room hotel. If we ever go back to Bali we would stay here without hesitation.
