Make a booking at Intum Homestay
This form is for bookings only - you can not use it to check availability. Here is why Details
NOTE: Intum Homestay was known as Mios Mansar Homestay until October 2016.
Intum Homestay occupies a beautiful little stretch of beach at the eastern end of the north shore of Kri Island.
Two single room private bungalows on land are available. Each bungalow has a verandah with a table and sea views and sleeps two in a bedroom equipped with a mattress on the floor, with pillows, bolsters, sheets and a mosquito net.
Meals at Intum Homestay are served in the homestay dining room which also has an ocean view, a large table and bench seating. Free drinking water, tea and coffee are provided there for guests.
Guests share Intum’s bathroom building which has two rooms. A western style toilet on a concrete floor occupies one and the other is the usual pebble floored dip mandi style bathroom.
Electricity is supplied by generator between sunset and midnight, but only a weak phone signal was available when we visited in June 2016. A data connection wasn’t possible, but one could be had by walking a few hundred metres up the beach to the
Yenkoranu Homestay jetty.
The nearest village for supplies is Yenbuba on Mansuar, which is about a 20 minute boat ride away. It would be best to bring any supplies you consider essential with you, as only basics are available in Yenbuba. Please be sure to take all inorganic rubbish like plastics and dead batteries away with you when you leave so you don’t contribute to
the trashing of paradise.
Only a little English is spoken at Intum Homestay, so a phrasebook will help ease any communications issues if you don’t speak Bahasa Indonesia.

Intum Homestay has fabulous snorkelling at the door and diving can be easily arranged at nearby Kri dive centres.
Kri also provides the opportunity for long hikes along its beaches at low tide. It’s even possible to cross the sandbanks to Yenbuba village on Mansuar and continue on from there. (You’d need a morning low tide and a pickup from your endpoint on Mansuar though.) There are also jungle paths that provide access to Kri’s heights where panoramic views of the Dampier Strait islands are available.
Intum offers free trips to the nearby Pasir Timbul sandbank which emerges from the ocean at every low tide, and can arrange sightseeing and snorkelling trips as required. Some of the possibilities are listed in the table below. Prices are Indonesian Rupiah and trip cost is shared by longboat passengers (maximum of 4).
