Food glorious food! -We have also created a very special menu allowing all guests access to my own private chef , Agung ( pictured in my profile pic with her little boy) and her incredible gourmet skills in our central kitchen. All my favourite recipes at very down to earth prices. Agung has been cooking stunning Indonesian and Western food for me for over 15 years - one of Bali's best cooks! Food is made fresh to order , from a menu just like a hotel , and priced at very reasonable local costs. Of course , your pavilion has a full kitchen so you are free to prepare your own meals if you wish.
If I am in Bali I love to meet my guests if they would like to . If not your private staff of 14 including manager, chef, driver, security, gardeners and housekeepers will pamper you in every way possible - or leave you in total privacy if that is what you prefer.
We are located in a breathtakingly tranquil village where Balinese life gently plays out as its done for centuries. Colourful fishing boats return to our village beach ( 200m away) every morning. Walks and cycles around the village , to nearby temples and through the ricefields are a delight. The famous and fabulous Echo Beach is a 20 minute walk along the beach. Seminyak a short taxi ride away for shopping and nightlife. Nirwana - Asia's best golf course is only 10 minutes away. Ubud is 45 mins, the rim of Bali's largest volcano at Kintamani around 90 mins, Ngurah Rai International airport is 60 mins, and the best of Bali is all accessible from our home - it is a simple matter to arrange a tour for any area you wish to see . Horse riding in the next village and great surf breaks along this coast too! Tanah Lot temple is 5 minutes away.
Walk or use our complimentary mountain bikes around our village and through the ricefields on concreted paths to nearby sights, hidden temples and beaches - its very close. Driver and car available for full or half day at very reasonable rates. ( either ours if available or we can arrange for you) Taxis can be called with 20 minutes notice to take you anywhere , and they are very cheap in Bali. Self drive motorbikes and cars can be hired for you by our staff and delivered to the property. An early morning bike through the UNESCO protected ricefields around our village, then down to the temples on the beach- is a priceless memory.
This is for those seeking the Bali that was. Total peace, utter tranquillity and a breath of fresh air. Our team at the villa will make sure you are completely pampered and every need is met. And our authentic food will nourish you and fill you with happiness.
The whole owners pavilion is yours! For total privacy just close your antique Bali gates and relax!

If I am in Bali, I like to interact with my guests if they would like to meet me. Our staff of 14 are all very friendly and love meeting new people! We also provide complimentary use of a local mobile phone for your stay pre loaded with all numbers you might need. We can arrange my driver, Nyoman to meet you at the airport with his big Balinese smile, a cool towel and a cold drink and bring you to the villa for an additional fee of $40 per trip, to cover his wages, fuel and car costs, airport parking etc.

Ubud, Uluwatu, and the best of Bali is all accessible from our home - it is a simple matter to arrange a tour for any area you wish to see . Horse riding in the next village and great surf breaks along this coast too! Tanah Lot temple is 5 minutes away. Please note we are in a pristine natural environment, and it is likely you will encounter critters such as small lizards, frogs, an abundance of birdlife, butterflies etc , during your stay. We love this aspect of our Bali home, but recognise that some folk may not be as enthusiastic as us about the local fauna . Also we ask guests to recognise that, although we have the best free wi fi service available in our area and service is normally perfectly adequate for recreational and casual use- , we are in a Balinese Fishing village and the internet speeds may not be what you are accustomed to at home. If ultra hi speed uninterrupted internet connection is high on your criteria for a relaxing Bali holiday - then you may want to consider carefully before confirming your reservation with us. Finally, traffic in Bali can be fickle –temple ceremonies, kite festivals, marriages and funerals use the same roads as you and I and can cause quite sudden and occasionally prolonged hold ups ( although the view from the car window of these rituals can be amazing!). Traffic times as described are estimated only.
Have fun, relax, and absorb the tranquillity! Smoking allowed outside but not in the enclosed spaces ( i.e bedrooms) . Treat our villagers with love and respect and they will give you the same in return.
Guy and Daniel are best friends since meeting while both were working in Indonesia since the early 90's. Daniel is a resort hotel GM and Guy a resort and health spa architect who has been lucky enough to work in designing resorts, villas and spas in Bali and around Asia for the last 25 years. This villa is our private holiday compound in Bali , built for us , our friends and our extended families. It started life as a 3 bedroom villa, to which we later added a 2 bedroom guest cottage. Inundated with friends and family, we decided to complete the compound with 2 very private , 'Owners pool pavilions' of 1 bedroom suites with their own pools . Each section of the compound flows with the whole whilst giving every guest total privacy with fully self contained amenities and their own private pools. Full dining and spa options available to all guests. We live between Bali , Sydney, and Thailand and feel its time to offer this place that has brought us so much happiness for 17 years to others. Come,, luxuriate and enjoy the paradise we have created!
