This is my first post here. I have been reading through various discussions all morning and must say I love this site!
My partner and I were in Lombok in May this year and fell in love with it (particuarly Kuta). It has now become our absolute mission to secure a piece of paradise for ourselves.
Our dream is to buy some land and set up some bungalows and spend our time surfing, sunbathing and enjoying life.
Basically I am trying to get a realistic view of assosciated costs- cost of purchasing land and building costs.
Whilst we were there I heard from a couple of people that a 8 room setup including land price would be in the vicinity of AUD $50,000.
Could anyone shed some light on whether this seems realistic.
We are hoping to be able to spend some more time in Kuta around December this year to look at property etc.
Many thanks to anyone with any advice or information.
