After travelling Indonesia from Aceh to Papua New Guinea, we decided that Maluk was the place to build our home. The world class waves, the laid back, friendly people and the tropical surroundings of Sumbawa lured us in from our very first visit.
Maluk House offers you a comfortable and affordable home away from home while you experience all that the area has to offer. Check out the surf at Supersucks from the balcony. If it's flat, go for a kayak or snorkel in Maluk Bay, hike to the waterfall in nearby Jereweh, or just sit back, lounge by the only pool in Maluk and enjoy the breath taking view. A five minute walk downhill from the house, the white sands of Supersucks are a beach combers paradise, and the water is great for swimming.
Welcome to Maluk House
The town of Maluk is a five minute motorbike ride away and provides an inside look at "the real Indo". Far from the crowds of tourists and hawkers in Bali and Lombok, this is a bustling little community of fishermen, miners, shopkeepers and their families. Horse drawn carts loaded down with women on their way to to the market share the road with scooters, bicycles, cows, goats, children and dogs. Local warungs offer traditional indonesia food for less than $2 a meal, and roadside stands sell fresh tropical fruits and young coconuts. Most of the locals speak Bahasa Indonesian, but they love to practice any English they might have picked up. The call of "Hello Mister!" is likely to follow you as you make your way through town.
Maluk House has given us a place to call home in the midst of our adventures. It is where we hope to make lasting memories with our family and friends and experience a simpler, slower paced way of life.
We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.
Maluk, West Sumbawa
