On the beautiful Flores island of Indonesia, 27 kms east of Maumere, nestled right at the water's edge, sits the Sleepy Lagoon.
Built traditionally from coconut wood and bamboo with grass roof, it's the perfect artist retreat or getaway holiday for couples or small families. If you have more than 4 people in your party you might like to consider also renting our little sister hut right next door (the Sleepy Sister - sleeps 2 - see separate listing).

Jen's place is stunning. When it comes time to leave the only thing you will want is to stay longer. The photos on the site don't fully capture just how wonderful her bungalow is or the beauty of the surrounds. Jen was very quick to respond to messages and was incredibly…

Response from Jen:
Thanks for such a lovely review! And by the way to any guests who are worried about mosquitoes, they are at their worst right now because it's the wet season. But you will hardly be bothered by them from around April until November. And Fredh is our wonderful caretaker - he…
