Free accommodation Bali

« on: August 02 2011 21:08:00 »

Hi just a word of warning to people traveling to Bali, we were told by an Australian guy Palu (Paul) and his wife Winny that they would give us one nights free accommodation at their Dreamland Home-stay, we had to pay one week upfront to entitle us to the deal after talking to local surfers that live on the island we were told to keep clear as they are well known to RIP OFF unwary tourists and locals.
Many stories started to unfold as we heard stories of people that had property stolen and money from both him and his wife.

He dose surfing trips and gets a bad name also from continually dropping in on people in the surf, what a prick.

Good luck all
Happy surfing ( girls beware )

To Desi and Sharma.
I have only good memories of Dreamland Homestay. I use them every year.  What a shame that you listen to, and act on, bad advice. You obviously do not know Paul and his wife but choose  to spread malicious rumours.
Perhaps your insult in the last paragraph sums YOU up?
