January 2023: Kees Guest House changed its name to Man Kring Kring Homestay.
Man Kring Kring Homestay occupies at tiny crescent of beach near Yenbeser village on Gam.
Man Kring Kring is the Betew name for the kingfishers that share their territory with the homestay.
Two private bungalows are available. One sits on the beach, while the land bungalow 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 Man Kring Kring Homestay’s beachside dining shelter. Drinking water and tea and coffee making supplies are always freely available to guests there.
Guests share bathroom facilities. A two room building houses a western style toilet in one room. Bucket bathing is 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. Man Kring Kring Homestay 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 Man Kring Kring Homestay. 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 Man Kring Kring Homestay, so bringing a phrasebook or translation app would be a good idea.
