We stayed at Balian Beach House for 5 days in January 2011. The location of the Balian Beach House is excellent. It is about a 100m walk to the surf and you can see how many surfers are out from the upstairs window. There are about 4 great restaurants within a short walking distance – 1 restaurant is directly next door. When we arrived we were met by Aldi, the lady who looks after the house during your stay. Aldi was always very friendly and helpful and arrived everyday to tidy around the house, make beds, wash towels etc. There was drinking water supplied (the large 20l bottle) as well as tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge – which was handy. Upstairs there was airconditioning, large king size bed, TV and DVD player and lounge – heaps of room. Michael is the manager of the Balian Beach House and he dropped around to see that all was going well. Overall a relaxing stay with friendly people, great surf and good food
