Manado villa description
Villa Bukit Doa is located in the northern part of Manado - the capital city of North Sulawesi province. The villa is about 25 min to the city center and 30 min from Sam Ratulangi International Airport. The airport can be reached by regular daily flights from Jakarta, Bali, Surabaya, Lombok, Raja Ampat Sorong Papua, and all major cities in Indonesia. Silk air, a regional wings of Singapore Airlines, also flies from Changi International Airport Singapore to Manado four times a week.
The villa is set on a 5 acres hillside with great vista of Manado City. The main building is a two story traditional Minahasa style wooden house with 3 bedrooms - a master bedroom with bathroom, and two guest rooms with a shared bathroom.
From the swimming pool deck, patio, balcony, and even your bedroom, you will have a commanding view to the city of Manado, Manado Bay, and Bunaken Marine Park!
Sunrises and Sunsets are available daily for your enjoyment :)
Manado and its surrounding area are famous throughout the region for its diving areas. Bunaken is one of the finest and maybe the most well-kept national marine park in Indonesia. If you are into muck diving, then Lembeh strait is only one hour away by car. We can arrange dive trips whether is group or private. Dive center and boat dock is just down the hill. For those who just learn how to dive, we can also arrange certification courses.
Housekeepers will clean the villa every day and prepare hot breakfast (you need to purchase the groceries).
Car, licensed driver, and English-speaking tour guide are available upon request with additional charge.
Enjoy your vacation… leave all your worries behind.

Amazing view with beautiful villa!
Amazing view with beautiful villa!
This was our first trip to Manado and we enjoyed such sweet hospitality and the green scenery everywhere we go. The villa has breathtaking view over Manado Bay, its location being away from the street is also a plus for family with young children. The lush, well kept vegetation around the property provides good, easy walk and place to run around for our kids. We chose this villa over staying at hotels to experience the way people live in Manado. The staff are friendly and helpful, they keep the villa and our rooms clean and tidy. They’re also very quiet, and seem to disappear although are quick when we needed something. Since the beginning of our inquiry, the owner was very helpful with our plan and itinerary. He and his wife speak fluent English, communication was smooth and it definitely plays an important part in our planning. Through him, we were able to rent a car with very reasonable charge. The driver was very accommodating and helpful with providing information and giving input on our sightseeing route. Overall, it was just very nice to have all these help and not feel like we’re all alone in unfamiliar city. Being on a hill, higher than the city, the location of the villa was comfortable. We got breeze, we kept the doors open. We decided to take it easy with the kids, so having the pool was also a plus point. Thank you for making our holiday enjoyable!

Hillside villa with million dollar view!
Hillside villa with million dollar view!
It was my first trip to beautiful Indonesia and Manado doesn't disappointed. The villa overlooked expansive oceanviews and is surrounded by lush vegetation. You feel like you are in a private oasis. The house is well kept and the furnishing fits with the cottage/resort feel. There is also a housekeeper and groundskeeper who stays in adjacent house that overlooks the property. You feel very secluded but safe knowing they are close by. Although they can't speak English they are very friendly and nice couple. You will feel right at home and wished you could extend your stay there. For breakfast or a refreshing snack there are fresh pineapple, coconuts and papaya a plenty from the many fruit trees that surround the gorgeous property. You will want to relax by the pool or read a good book under the covered balcony or porch. There isn't a bad view or room in the house. The owner is also very helpful and responsive. He speaks English and was able to give us tips and very great recommendations sightseeings, dine and even day hikes. He even helped to book a driver to help is get around and show us the hidden spots far from tourist traps.

We visited Manado in October on our trip of indonesia. Prefering home stay privacy and value for money we chose to stay at this villa. The owner was helpful and friendly in every aspect. The home has a lovely swimming pool surrounded by lush gardens and is a five minute drive from the dive centre that has the best location in Bunaken marine park. We rented a car from the owner which I would advise for going the markets and boulevard (a 20 minute drive). There are helpful staff on site and the security man can accompany you to show you the way to town, waterfall etc. Scuba diving or relaxation would be the main reasons for visiting Manado and if you want direct access to Bunaken for diving with nice coraled wall dives and great muck diving this villa is the ideal base. The hotels are a bit average and if you are in Manado for any length of time (we booked for ten days) you may feel stuck staying in the hotels. I would defiantly recommend the villa as a safe and peaceful home when you visit Manado. Happy planning :)

About the owner: My wife and I were both born and raised in Manado. We enjoy traveling and this is our weekend home. We love to entertain and use this villa to entertain our friends and families.
Why the Owner Chose Manado:
After our education in US, we decided to come back. We are generations of entrepreneurs who live and work in the city. We need a place that is nearby for convenience yet provides peaceful setting for weekend getaway. Finally, after two years of research, in 2008, we found our favorite place. The rest is history :)
