Dreams do come true! Wayan, an English speaking tour guide, dreamed to build a giant bird house to cultivate swallow nests carefully, protecting the threatened population. Suzan dreamed to live part time in SE Asia. They worked together to formulate their dreams. After five years of waiting for the birds to enter, the project renovated to become home for international guests. Owners Wayan and wife Putri take care of all the guests needs from transportation and cultural tours, daily housekeeping and delicious traditional meals. The swallows do continue to fly above the rice fields keeping Swallowhouse free of mosquitoes. Suzan learned about “karma” by working closely with the gracious Balinese people living in Dharma. It is our goal to share and maintain the rich and ancient culture so many have come to love.
