Kees Guest House occupies at tiny crescent of beach near Yenbeser village on Gam.
Two private bungalows are available. One sits on the beach, while the other occupies a spot on the edge of the cliff above the beach.
The beach bungalow has wide ocean views from its verandah. The land bungalow sits behind a thin screen of trees, but a small cliffside deck provides a shady spot to take in the ocean panorama below. Both bungalow verandahs are equipped with chairs and a small table.
Bedding is mattresses on the floor with mosquito nets, pillows and bolsters. Power outlets and room light switches are provided.
Meals are served in Kees Guest House’ beachside dining shelter. Drinking water and tea and coffee making supplies are alays freely available to guest there. Unusually, Kees Guest House dining room has a refrigerator. Bear in mind that electricity is only available for a few hours a day, so it’s unlikely to be very cold during the day.
Guests share bathroom facilities. A two room building houses a western style toilet in one room. Bucket bathing (and a washing machine!) are provided in the other. Note: The bathroom building is up above the beach, behind the land bungalow. It’s a bit of a journey from the beach bungalow. Footwear is recommended, and a light would definitely be needed for night visits.
Electricity is available from a generator that runs from sunset until around midnight and Kees Guest House usually receives a strong and reliable 4G phone signal.
Yenbeser village is a ten minute boat ride away if you want to visit or buy basic supplies. Please don’t leave any inorganic trash at Kees Guest House. Inorganic waste (especially plastic) that is left at homestays will simply contribute to Raja Ampat’s growing rubbish problem.
Only a little English is spoken at Kees Guest House, so bringing a phrasebook or traslation app would be a good idea.
