When's the best time to come?

As in most parts of Indo the peak swell times are May – September with the fringe months still producing solid swell and the low season here can be epic with super low crowds and consistent small to medium west swells.

How many people do the villas sleep?

Comprising of 2 separate rooms, the villas can sleep up to 6 adults or combinations of couples and families. Hit us up if you have a unique combo and we’ll accommodate your needs. 

Can you accommodate dietary needs?

Should I bring a big board?

With a 16 day forecast now available we can usually tell if it’s going to be big or not so no need to lug that big board unless there’s a big swell coming.
