Desaru – Bob’s Homestay

After our visit at Crocodile World, we chanced upon the signboard that leads us to Bob’s Homestay.

With lots of time still on hand before we could check into our hotel, we ventured into Bob’s Home stay.

As the name suggest, the accommodation provided here was a home stay, nothing too fancy but welcoming and unpretentious.

Entering the compounds of Bob’s Home stay, we were welcomed by a couple of cottages and Teepee looking chalets in earthly tones. It felt a little like entering a quaint little village by the straits.

Located at the riverside, you could sit at the garden and watch the world go by and the tides rise and fall.


It was low tide  during the time when I was there. The small hut is the jetty that leads to the floating fishing area during the high tide.



The compound of Bob’s Home stay is rather huge with lots of space between the chalets for privacy.


Behind me is one of the type of the accommodation, The Lodge.  The Lodge can fit up to 9 people, yes it is that huge, and about RM300 per night. Quite a good bargain if you have a big group of friends or family. For the extremely budge conscious, there is even a dormitory in Bob’s home stay for RM20 per night!


It looks like an interesting place to spend the weekend with huge group of friends and family as there are not much activities that you do in the area so it would be good to be able to have good company over a bbq dinner by the riverside. One thing you shoulddefinitely pack when you are intending to stay there is your mosquito repellent.

With that you will be able to soak up the kampung atmosphere fully without being distracted by the itch. 😉
