What is a good and inexpensive place to stay, in Lombok. We'd prefer to pay per month, and may set up camp there. I'm hoping for a budget under 3 million/month, preferably near or under 2 million.

PostSubject: Realistic rates for long term (camp) stay in Lombok   Sun May 03, 2009 7:04 am

Hi,

You are taling about "good" and "inexpensive" place for "camp(ing)" in Lombok. I wonder if you can get a place for 3 million Rps. a month.

You have made an effort to define "inexpensive" as under 2 million. Can you elaborate on what you mean by good?

I wasn't sure what they were looking for either. A house to live in? furnished? or long term homestay? Where in Lombok ??? Do they need to be near schools or other facilities? What does "good" mean? I think the 'camp' reference is a bit of Aussie slang - it can mean making somewhere your home. But then I don't know of any 'by the month' long term accommodation in Lombok anyway (other than doing a deal with a cheaper homestay type place) - e.g. you could probably get a small discount off the nightly rate at Santai if you committed to a few months - but I have no idea if this is the sort of thing the OP is looking for. Lombok doesn't have the range of accomm choices you get in Bali - no apartments etc.

Hi Kikyo, you will probably need to go to Lombok and have a look around. From your reply it doesn't sound like you have been there at all yet? I have not heard of anything like you describe for that budget in the Senggigi area or near a beach. Your choice of long term accommodation is fairly limited in Lombok - just about any house will be paid up front for a year. Occassionally people are willing to rent for shorter periods, but the price goes up quite a lot. Also, Senggigi is about 20mins by motorbike to the closest market at Kobanroi (sorry about the spelling), and half hour to the nearest hospital in Mataram or Ampenan.
Just outside Senggigi in Batu Bolong are a few BTNs in Green Valley. You can drive around in there and look for houses signs advertising they are for rent. These are mostly western style houses and prices may be outside your budget. You can also look around in the Montong and Aik Ginit areas (about 1/2 way between Senggigi and Mataram) - a mix of western but mostly Indonesian style houses - sometimes one will come up for rent.
In Mataram there are various BTN's that you could look around with Indonesian style houses.
Unfortunately finding a place to live is really a case of going to Lombok, and looking around the various areas for houses with signs up, asking at local warungs, checking local papers etc. Finding a house with a phone line (so you can get Telkom Speedy) in the area you want, at the price you want, takes a bit of work and not always exactly what you want.

Should clarify for those not living in Indonesia, a BTN is like a housing estate or maybe a modern village. I assume Kikyo you have heard that term as you live in Jakarta.
Sometimes it is gated (particularly the western style housing or more wealthy ones). There are good and bad BTNs - the cheaper ones tend to attact undesirables, so you get people up all night playing guitars and smoking pot, and fights. In the better ones people mostly have full time jobs, so can be a bit noisy early in the morning with everyone warming up their motorbikes. There is usually security all night, and rubbish collection, for which the residents pay a small fee each month to the body running the BTN.
