Fantastic getaway cottage on the remote island of Gili Meno, Indonesia. The island is a great escape for the person who just wants to get away from it all. The island is 1km X 2km with no motorised transport - so you walk, bicycle or use the odd horse drawn cart. There is a friendly local community of about 450 people.
The Island is about simplicity - so if you are searching for peace and quiet - where time literally stands still - you will know you have found paradise. This island is about relaxing and enjoying the ocean.
This cottage has the facilities to accommodate 2 people. It has been built deliberately simple so one can just disengage. Accommodation includes:-One Bedroom with kingsize bed and daybed, Outside bamboo bathroom. There is a television for watching DVDs only we do not have television reception at the property.
Living Areas - 2 outside gazebos. A large 8m X 6.5m with day beds, chairs for relaxing, kingsize bed, very large dining table. I very rarely sleep inside the cottage and usually elect to sleep outdoors on the gazebo and enjoy the ocean breeze and sunrise in the morning. There is also 2m X 2m gazebo on the beach.
Very basic kitchen with gas hob, fridge and washing machine
This getaway cottage is all about being outside
Electricity - on the island is very erratic - when it goes out it goes out, we do not keep a generator on site.
Location we are situated on the NE side of Gili Meno, which forms part an archipelago of 3 small islands known as the Gilis just NW of Lombok Island
This location is fantastic for Scuba Diving and Snorkelling. There are currently 3 dive companies operating on the island.
Islandshack58 has a housekeeper who is available to help during your stay on the island.
There is Cell phone reception on the island and 3G for internet if you use a smart phone
You can get to Gili Meno by 20minute flight from Bali to Lombok (about US$30) take a taxi to Bangsal Harbour and then a short local boat trip takes about 20 minutes to the Island , or the easiest most hasslefree way is to take a speed boat direct from Bali which takes about 2 hours - they drop you in front of the house.

Quiet community, about 450 people live on the island. It is not very populated and you can almost feel like you are visiting you own island. Main harbour about 15 minutes walk away. You can walk everywhere on the island. An early morning run around should take about 50minutes.

I am currently living in South Africa, involved in Real Estate sales. This is a holiday home so a non simultaneous exchange is possible.
