Bali's Secret and Magical East Coast WHITE HOUSE

Bedrooms 1
Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2-3

Want to get away from the tourist hordes of Kuta, Seminyak, & Ubud? Then come to Bali's still pristine East Coast of Padangbai.... where we have 2 units on the same property that make up 'Bali Mimba Villa'.

The WHITE HOUSE is one of our 2 adjacent, private and exotic, bungalows, on the same, beautifully gardened property. Along with the Green House, the 2 bungalows comprise BALI MIMBA VILLA and are close to Padangbai and its developing and friendly Hindu-Bali culture.

We rent each bungalow separately and offer a 20% discount for booking them together.

Both bungalows have wifi.

The WHITE HOUSE is one of two beautiful Balinese-style modern vacation units with air con & hot water that sit beside a traditional 'bale' (a Hindu-Bali pagoda for relaxation), facing a 6 meter private pool, right in the middle of a rural banana & coconut field, 5 minutes by motorbike from Padangbai's famous 'White Sand Beach'. The White House has 1 king size, comfy bed.

The GREEN HOUSE has 2 separate twin beds. Plus we have an extra, portable and comfortable, mattress for either unit, allowing us to sleep 5 people

The main living-bedroom in each unit is air conditioned, and there is a separate bathroom (w/ a hot water shower) and a kitchen in each unit that has a small frig and simple cookware to prepare meals at the villa.

Guests will have access to the unit(s) they rent and to the entire property. The pool and the property will be shared only when both units are simultaneously rented, which is infrequently. Guests also have access to 2 nearby East Coast public & beautiful beaches. To nearby scuba diving and snorkeling. To the nearby Bali Safari Park. To local markets. To almost daily Hindu-Bali ceremonies. To lots of eco-friendly tourism. And to our local manager, Made, who can arrange for anything your heart desires.

My wife and I live in Los Angeles. So our super knowledgeable and capable manager, Made, handles everything at the Villa.

Often only 1 unit is booked at a time, so there is always peace & privacy. When both units are booked separately, the pool is shared.

Padangbai is a still quiet and developing fishing village and ferry hub on the East Coast of Bali. It is not nearly so crowded at the Kuta Beach-Seminyak 'strip', yet it still has eco-friendly tourism.

Our Villa is set back down a private road, surrounded by banana and coconut trees, amidst Mimba Village. It is secluded, private, and peaceful, yet close enough to get anywhere in the Padangbai area, as well as convenient to get around the entire island.

It is helpful, if not essential, to rent a simple-to-operate motor scooter to get on and off the property conveniently. Made, our manager, can arrange for rental and teach newbies to operate the scooter in 15 minutes. It's fun. Alternatively, guests can just hang out at the villa and walk to the beaches or to town, or arrange for transport when needed, either to town, or for day (or overnight) trips around the entire island. Also, small cars will fit down the private, unpaved road. And buses do arrive in Padangbai from all over the island.

Both overnight & long term stays are available. Long term rentals are particularly suitable for retirees and pensioners.

Our pool may not be suitable for young children who don't swim: no guard rails and no 'shallow' end'. However, plastic tube/'floaties' can solve the problem.

Our main man and manager/concierge, Made (Ma-Day), can pick you up at the Denpasar international airport ($70), check you in personally at the villa, and get you anything you need at the Villa, any time! He can also be your personal host & tour guide to Balinese life and culture: everything from traditional wedding ceremonies, to Barong ballets & 'kecak' monkey chants, to local night markets, to scuba diving & snorkeling, to multi-day trips eco-adventuring to Ubud, Amed, Lovina, and all the other magical places around the island.

About Eric and Surya Trules

Eric has been a USC (University of Southern California) theater professor for almost 3 decades. Surya is from Medan, Indonesia, and the two met on the magical island of Bali in 2000.

Eric and Surya Trules purchased this villa in 2012

Why Eric and Surya Trules chose Manggis

We built this beautiful 2 unit home for ourselves and friends as an exotic and comfortable getaway from the busy Western world in the middle of a rural village right near Bali's still-pristine East Coast beaches. It has air con, wifi, a beautiful pool, a kitchen for cooking, a bathroom, and a staff that helps with everything. It's near enough to all the amenities of Padangbai (shopping, groceries, bars, restaurants), and within an hour drive from the tourist centers.

If you want exotic, private, natural Balinese beauty away from the tourist hordes, come stay with us!

What makes this villa unique

Quiet. Natural beauty. Relaxing in 2 hammocks. Swimming in a private pool. Privacy (if you rent both units or you're our only guest, often the case). Anything you want from our staff: massage, driving, cooking, etc.

Beautiful secluded retreat in Padangbai

  • 4 of 5

This was just the thing we needed to get away from the resort scene and get some real R&R (rest and recuperation). We used the White house not just to spend lazy days relaxing by the cool pool but as a home base to explore nearby areas of Bali like the island Gili Trawangan (fast boats leave from Pandangbai). It's about an hour and a half from Ubud (via scooter, not recommended for those without experience or an adventurous heart). The home is well kept, air conditioned living/bedroom, a kitchen with the essentials: small refrigerator, cold/hot water to drink we used for our morning coffee or ramen style cup of noodles, and propane burners for cooking, though we took advantage of the many restaurants in town. There's also Wi-fi.

The property is off the beaten path surrounded by banana trees in the hills above Padangbai. We rented a scooter to get around town. Made, the property manager on-site was very helpful, he helped us get fair prices to Gili island, scooter rental and his recommendation for finding a great tasting place for Luwak coffee was spot on.

We really enjoyed our Bali stay at the White house.

Hidden Delight in Padanbai

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing gem tucked away in a quiet location surrounded by beautiful plantings with a delightful private pool. The local property manager is available to assist in making any type of arrangements. He is very resourceful and is a genuinely great person to know. The houses are in a quiet, secluded compound with interesting neighbors, cows with wooden bells that get walked by the gate each morning on their way to pasture,and beautiful butterflies. You will be comfortable here~ we loved our stay and highly recommend it.

Natur pur in kleinem beschaulichem Bagpacker dorf

  • 4 of 5

Our holiday in Padang bai in the White House was very nice. The house is very nice and clean, very near to the Forrest. It's around 20min to the small village by walking but with the scooter you can arrive in 7-8 min.

Our manager Made and his brother cared good about us. We also choosed them for our tour to ubud. Made have a lot of experience as a tour guide, he know much nice spots.

I'm sure this was not our last trip to padangbai and also would come back to visit the White House.

Our Villa is on the beautiful East Coast of Bali, in 'Mimba Village', just outside of Padangbai, Bali's main ferry hub. There are beautiful natural beaches for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, sunbathing, etc, and many local Hindu-Bali ceremonies, almost daily. The wonderful Bali Safari Park, one of SE Asia's best animal parks with a spectacular 100 person, live elephant theater show, is just a 15 minute drive away. Besaki Temple, elephant trekking, and 'dive walking' in Labuan are also nearby.

Our manager, Made, can arrange for day tours, overnight trips around the island, or anything else our guest wants or needs.
