We truly believe another booking website is exactly what the world needs! Compared to other platforms, the locals don’t pay any fees and any commission to Home Sweet Home. We travel and find the places, take pictures, write some nice words and bring them online.lombok-accommodation-the-spot-bungalows-family


The prices you see are the walk-in rates, made by the locals. So you might wonder how we make money? We simply charge a booking fee of 11% when making a booking with us. The room rate you simply pay the rate in cash on arrival. You have to know it’s not common for Indonesians to have credit cards or even bank accounts. 

We are living in a world where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. Specially in a second world country like Indonesia many people simply don’t know how to get their business online.And if though, most of the times the pictures aren’t nice and the description isn’t inviting. That’s why we are here for: We go around and actively list the places online! We call it Treasure Hunting! 

…and tree houses, homestays, tents, hammocks & more – You name them all! There is no limit to creativity. Home Sweet Home offers a type of accommodations, which are not hotels, resorts or villa. We love the local style! Do you remember reading your guidebook and coming across those bungalow/beach cottage places? Yup, that’s it – That’s what Home Sweet Home offers!


Hidden places which you can only access by foot located above the cliffs – Bamboo huts right at the beach in the middle of nowhere or a house in the tree. We were surprised what amazing hidden treasures we have found! Wake up and live in a dream with Home Sweet Home.  Check out highlights!
