I went for a week to Mentawai and I stayed at Yanto's place, since I arrived to Padang they looked after me. Yanto's crew is very friendly and helpful, the food cooked by Yanto was flavorful and served in very generous portions. The house is very spacious and they always keep it clean. Yanto and his crew took me to Surf in their boat and gave me advices about the breaks, also they are great photographers. Thanks to the staff I felt like at home, they are very friendly and welcoming. I had an awesome holiday, I would love to return.

Yanto is the first Mentawai person to guide surfers in the Mentawais. A true local with local knowledge. His place is very large. The beds are real and comfortable. Powerful fans and A/C in every bedroom. His captain and crew go out of their way to take care of guests.

Yanto's place is one of the best places I have been in Indonesia. The people who takes care of the place are very cool and willing to hep you with everything. The place is new, clean, big, and have good places to chill.

I really recommend the place if you want to go with your dudes to surf.

Also, the food is very good. Even do the place is very isolated, you can still eat what you want. The cook is excellent, you will try local dishes and the house is plenty os snacks.

From the airport to the House, Yanto and the crew go out of there way to make sure everything is ready for your stay, Once there the AIR Cond. rooms are large and roomy with large windows to let the morning sea breeze in, the Bed was just like home not just foam mattress. Food was Different everyday, not the samething every meal like some boats! The cook was great as was the staff at the house, all very accommindating, Had a great time, surf in all directions from a short walk to Pitstop or Bank vaults to short boat rides to all kinds of breaks some you never heard of...we went off season and still found surf because of Yanto's 20 years of guide on da boat! Cheehooooo SIC boys love Uncle G. P.S. Bayu thanks a bunch, and Hint 1 Reserve and book early!
