@Martaswindows An intimate compound tucked away, 15 minutes drive from the nearest surf spots. A great place to relax between surf sessions, swim in the pool, with very good restaurants scattered around the region etc. Marta can arrange surf guides and teachers to accompany you in the water if necessary.
@irvanvanheln Driver, tour guide, pick up from Jakarta etc. Awesome guy, and a safe driver.
