Southwest of the Gam village of Yenbeser and opposite Pulau Friwen, Efenli Arnes Homestay is a perfect family retreat.
A single, 2 room bungalow sits in the shade of a tree-lined perfect beach. (If you want the whole bungalow, be sure to select TWO rooms on the booking form above.)
Both rooms open off a large verandah, and have real beds, supplied with sheets, pillows, bolsters and mosquito nets. Each bedroom also has a small table or shelf and power outlets and a room light switch are provided.
Meals are served on the bungalow verandah. Separate tables are provided for when couples share the bungalow, but these can be joined for family meals. The verandah has sea views and are equipped with chairs and table for relaxing. Drinking water, tea and coffee are always freely available there.
A western style toilet and dip mandi bathroom are housed in separate rooms in the homestay’s bathroom building.
The mobile phone signal at Efenli Arnes Homestay is reasonable, but becomes unreliable in windy conditions. Electricity is available from a generator that runs from sunset until around midnight.
Yenbeser village is a short boat ride away and basic supplies can be purchased there. To avoid contributing to Raja Ampat’s ever growing trash problem, please take all your inorganic trash away with you when you leave.
Very little English is spoken at Efenli Arnes. Bringing a phrasebook will make things a lot easier if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia.
Transport / Getting there
Bring your own snorkelling gear to enjoy the great snorkelling available from the beach at Efenli Arnes. The sandy shore offers easy access to the water and the house reef is rich with fish. Dolphins are also often seen passing the homestay as they cruise the deeper waters beyond the reef dropoff.
Efenli Arnes Homestay can organise longboat trips to any location you care to visit. Village and island visits, Gam and Kabui Bay explorations and trips to see nearby Bird of Paradise display sites can be arranged.
Diving is available at Efenli Arnes Homestay in conjunction with neighbour Yendebabo Homestay.
