Yenros Homestay has three single room, private bungalows. The bungalows sit on a headland overlooking a cove on Gam’s eastern coast. The bungalows have glazed windows and lockable doors. All bungalows have mattresses on the floor with mosquito nets, pillows and bolsters. Power outlets and room light switches are provided. Each bedroom also has a small table and towels are supplied.
Yenros Homestay’s dining room is nearby, and enjoys panoramic ocean views. The dining room’s shady deck is a great place to relax, and there are also a couple of seats provided in the shade of beachside trees.
Yenros’ bathroom building is shared by all guests. Bucket bathing and a western style toilet are provided in two separate, concrete-floored rooms.
Electricity is available from a generator that runs from sunset until around midnight and Yenros receives a reliable strong 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 Yenros. You need to take such rubbish away with you to avoid contributing to Raja Ampat’s growing rubbish problem.

Wildlife abounds at Yenros. The vast array of reef fish to be seen in front of the homestay includes Yenros’ resident wobbegong shark and a few recently identified rare species. Dolphins and turtles are also frequent visitors. All guests receive a free guided tour to see the walking sharks that live in the mangroves near Yenros.
