There are also colorful local 'warungs' in the village to enjoy real local flavor. Complimentary mountain bikes and complimentary local mobile phones pre loaded with all the numbers you need are given to every guest. My driver can meet you at the airport with my comfortable air conditioned van, a cold towel and a cool drink, if you would like for a small additional fee ( USD $40 per trip ). Please note the pool pavilion bedroom is somewhat smaller than the other bedrooms and the ensuite has no tub. However its unique position between the pool, the creek and the rice fields make it a crowd favorite!
Our team of 14 including the 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.
This is for those seeking the Bali that was. Total peace, utter tranquility and a breath of fresh air. Our team at the villa will make sure you are completely rested and every need is met. And our delicious food will blow you away! There is also a full in villa spa service, for massage, facials, body scrubs etc - all within the comfortable luxury of your villa.

Seminyak is a short taxi ride away for shopping and nightlife. Nirwana - Asia's best golf course is only 10 minutes away. 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. You are literally about as central to all the best of Bali as its possible to be, and yet in an pristine and authentic environtment.
Other things to note
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.

Horse riding in the next village and great surf breaks along this coast too! Tanah Lot temple is 5 minutes away. Please note the 6th bedroom is considerably smaller than the other 5 bedrooms, but we think its spectacular location , between the swimming pool, the creek, and the ricefields, makes it a very special place to sleep and enjoy our unique environment. 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 vision from the car window of these rituals can be amazing!). Traffic times as described are estimated only.
Have fun, relax and absorb the tranquility! Smoking allowed outside but not in the enclosed space ( i.e bedrooms ). Treat our villagers with love and respect and they will give you the same in return.
I am Australian originally from Adelaide but now resident in Sydney , splitting my time between there, Bali and Bangkok. I'm also a long term Indonesia - o phile and traveller in the area since my backpacking days in the mid 80's. My profession is Architecture specialising in designing resorts, villas and spas in Bali and around Asia and The Caribbean for the last 25 years. This Balinese inspired compound is our second home in Bali , and started 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 swimming pools. ( yes we have 4 pools!) Full in villa dining and spa services available to all guests. We have had wonderful times in our Bali home and feel its time to offer this place that has brought us so much happiness for 12 years to others. Come and enjoy our little corner of paradise!
