“Very impressed with the beach, clean with beautiful surroundings and good for kids too”
- Dr. Stefan Danerek, PhD in Indonesian Literature and currently compiling a Swedish beach guide


Sambolo attracts numerous vendors and those who have stayed at the beach bungalows know how persistent they can be. They sell everything from beach shorts and batik to seashells and massages. Vendors are not allowed onto the property unless invited and it is advised to keep the gate closed at all times to avoid vendors being tempted to just walk in.

If you would like to buy something you can of course invite them in to negotiate. You can also simply go to the beach and encounter them there if you prefer privacy at the house. We do encourage guests to buy something from local people as it helps to stimulate the local economy.
