Property description

This private villa is in the heart of Seminyak, Bali surrounded by trees providing a bird sanctuary. This oasis is near shopping and night life, but the location is one of the few quiet spots in Seminyak. Enjoy the Seminyak beach which is 300 meter walk from the compound. The villa includes 4 bedrooms with queen beds, 4 1/2 baths, kitchen, dining room, office with wifi high speed internet, media room with music, movies, and satellite TV, pool and gardens. There is also a private apartment with separate entrance, bedroom , kitchen, and bath. Practice yoga on a teak deck pavilion or enjoy a massage. Furnished with teak antiques and handmade hardwood furniture. Sleep in natural bedroom with cool breezes and listen to crashing of waves or try 3 spacious bedrooms with AC. There is a staff of 4 that have been with me over 15 years. They provide 24 hour service including laundry, cleaning, child care, and tour guide/driver. Two cooks treat you to Balinese, Thai, French, Italian, and American southern food that is among the best in Bali. All the guests rave about the staff, the quiet location, and the daily ritual of traditional Bali. The compound is new, but uses recycled antique wood from a villa on the same spot..

According to our guests (note reviews), we have the best location and staff in Seminyak. The beach is lovely and quiet in the morning . People are strolling with their dogs, playing with their kids dipping in the ocean, taking early surf classes, small groups are exercising, or meditating in front of temples. The evening is party time. Seminyak is the center for night life in Bali. La Planca directly out front is a popular spot for sunsets and inexpensive food and drinks. There are many great restaurants and clubs along the beach. We are located between Double Six and Gado Gado. Ku de ta and Potato Head are a short walk to the right. Made's Warung is a short walk to Seminyak main street which has some of the best shopping in Bali.

We are one of the few full service villas in Bali providing cooking, shopping,cleaning, and laundry. We offer great tours for families as well as adventure and spiritual seekers.We have a concierge who can organize tours with our 2 drivers including temples, Balinese culture (dances, gamelon music, crafts), art museums ( like Neka), traditional villages like Tenganan, rafting, bicycling, scuba diving, surfing, water amusement parks, zoos, yoga, spas, cooking classes, etc. Families with children love staying at the beach or playing at our pool. Also, we can arrange great places to stay in other parts like diving in Ahmed, ecotourism in Ubud, or yoga retreats on organic farms.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I am an environmental scientist who fell in love with Bali. The people were in a state of meditation when I arrived. I chose to raise three boys in Bali. Now I live between Santa Fe, Bali, and Nashville. I own the structures, and I have leased the land for 66 years.

Why the Owner Chose Seminyak, Badung Regency, Bali, Republic of Indonesia:
We came to Bali and fell in love with a culture that was in a state of meditation. Each village shared and was a permanent culture filled with dance and music. It is sad to see the change. The people of Bali are still wonderful. So I stay. They like electricity for pumping water. The auto is a mistake. Now they fight against pollution and sprawl. Stop plastic. Save the Bali culture. Tolak Reclamsi.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The staff when not working sit together and make offerings. It feels like a Balinese compound, not just another modern villa. You know you are in Bali. The food is great. Love cooking with Nengah. They bake everything including bagels, bread, pies, cakes, and granola. The food is certainly comparable to the better restaurants. They can shop and provide two meals a day for about $3 a meal a person. You can also shop and cook your choices. Start with exotic Balinese fruit (mango, passion fruit, papaya, sirsak, etc.) American breakfast with homemade jam and bagels, eggs florentine, or fried rice. Try pizza or salad for lunch. Dinner can be Balinese, Thai, French, Southern, Mexican or Italian. Eat better for less. Wayan, the driver concierge, is a great shopper and tour guide. She has helped start people in business. She can take you to a spiritual healer or ceremony. Take an eco village or adventure tour. Ilu is also a great cook and lovely with children. Spend the day out front on the Seminyak beach which has a good beach break for surfing. Horseback riding is available at Mesari on the way to the beach. Perhaps only house in Seminyak with beach access and a quiet road to supermarket (take a bicycle) or other shopping. Many restaurants and bars are nearby. The downstairs studio bedroom and the natural bedroom are designed for breezes that keep them cool year round. There are six air conditioners, but I usually prefer fresh air. The villa is situated in a quiet spot, but near Seminyak shopping. Ride a bicycle to the market. Great beach with surf, and near the famous night spots of Seminyak. There are 5 acres of forest next to the compound with many birds. I love the song of the rain bird.
