The Bali House - a Tropical Paradise in North Carolina!
average rating of 4.9375 based on 50 reviews

The Bali House is a world of paradise that doesn't require a passport to visit.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been blessed to be able to travel to many wonderful destinations. We enjoyed our time at each location, but in the end, we were ready to return to our home. The only exception to this has been Greece, until now. We did not want to leave the Bali House. Instead, I want to live there!

The owners have created an oasis of peace and tranquility that envelopes you and keeps you enthralled! The entrance to the garden transforms into a gateway to paradise. The Bali House blends so artfully into the lush tropical garden that you barely register the presence of the house. The covered veranda adjoins the large koi pond allowing visitors to sit outside ( regardless of the weather) and be captivated by the view of the pond and gardens. All of your normal daily worries and concerns are whisked away as you find your inner peace in this tranquil sanctum.

The Bali House itself is a studio design with designated areas that serve as living room, kitchen/dining and bedroom. The open floor design allows for spectacular views of the pond and garden from any interior location. The house is completely comfortable for a couple with all the amenities you could ask for as well as a few you didn't know you wanted (the shower has 6 additional spray jets).

While the privacy of the Bali House seems worlds away from civilization, it is actually conveniently located in Wilmington as to be less than a mile from many fabulous restaurants, breweries and stores. Everything you could need is nearby, but why would you want to leave the Bali House to reenter the world?

Spectacular Experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful weekend! Without doubt the best HomeAway rental/Airbnb we have stayed in in over 5 years of using these services regularly. The garden is lovely and calming. We absolutely loved it and so did our two dogs. The house has a projector screen to watch movies on which was awesome. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Beautiful tropical setting

  • 4 of 5

It rained most of the time we were there which added to the tropical atmosphere! Beautiful setting with nice amenities. Didn't bother to venture out into the surrounding traffic and hustle and bustle. This is the place to shack up and relax. The minus one star is only for the projector breaking down, otherwise it was a perfect stay.

The Bali House is a must stay place. The Bali House makes ones atmosphere feel of total tranquility.

Close to Wilmington NC, the beaches not far, I would definitely recommend the Bali House for any one searching to stay in the area and I myself will be a returning customer.
