    For a two day trip to Nusa Penida, this is a good stay where you get all basic amenities and get very well spend your night in peace. The location is prime and you will find mostly everything at 5-10 mins ride. There are many restaurants near the stay.

    I love it”

    the boss is very nice. We have a little bit problem with Agoda on the day coming but he really support us by looking for other rooms for women & babies first while get no respond from Agoda. He also support our team (7 adults & 2 babies) many ways in 3-days-stay in island, without his help we may cancel our vacation. His homestay is very nice too, stay here make you really feel like home and the food is great too, especially the breakfast (same as othet review). One more thing we would like to recommend you to stay here: very nice boss & staffs. We forgot 1 mobile phone in the room when checkout then when I notify, they quickly found it and send it to my hotel in Kuta within days without any delivery fee although I ask him to pay it before. All of us just "wow" for anything the excellent boss did to us and we all remember his kind as god of him. Thank you very much The Mel Homestay, The Mel Huts and the Really Lovely Boss, you make our vacation excellent than ever. We will come back here many times whenever I or my friend come to Nusa Penida

    Highly recommended”

    The service is beyond expectation. Mr and Mrs Kadek are very welcome, helpful and friendly. They're willing to pick up and drop us to the harbour, they're giving detailed information about the must-visit places in Nusa Penida, and also help us to arrange our snorkeling trip. The Mel Homestay located in mainstrip, and easy to find. They have a beautiful garden in the lobby, and a gazebo if you want to practice yoga. The room was enough for 2 persons, the aircon worked well. Although the bathroom was tiny but it's okay. You can ask them to clean up the room as well. They provide the motorbike rent, and it's cheaper than if you rent from the harbour. They have their own restaurant and minimart, so it's easier for you if you need to buy some stuffs. I would highly recommend this place since it's worth the price, and the service is excellent.
