About This Listing
Enjoy two mins walk to Jalan Kayu Aya, known as the most stylish street in the island. Our 2 bedrooms villa is an oasis of calm in the midst of bustling Seminyak. Location is PERFECT. 50m to great restaurants, trendy shops and best coffee places.
The spacious two-story, open-plan villa, set on a 300 squared meter property, has two bedrooms, one off the main living area and the other comprising the entire second floor. Both have en suite bathrooms, and the upper bedroom opens onto a terrace with a sweeping view of Oberoi neighborhood, Seminyak. A notable feature is the three meter wooden dining table and bench, ideal for parties or family dinners. A private swimming pool is set in a lush garden, and a bamboo fence, overgrown with tropical vines and colorful plants, encloses the property.
Interaction with Guests
We love to meet new people, though we live between Bali and Amsterdam so we’re not always around to greet you. However, we have a fantastic villa manager, Dayu (check out our review, she's an absolute gem of our villa!) who will always on call to help you with any tips and information you might need. But if we happen to be in Bali, we would be more than happy to give you our local insights.
Our villa is located in Bali’s most stylish district, Oberoi, Seminyak. It is an area that blends the relaxed mood of life in the tropics together with the sophistication of some of Bali’s finest wining and dining venues.
The beach is 10 minutes away and the nearby streets are alive with hip boutiques, up-market cafés and galleries showcasing local artistry. As the sun goes down, Seminyak becomes a veritable playground where fashionable travellers socialise at Ku De Ta, Hu’u Bar, Potato Head, Mantra, La Favela, Motel Mexicola, or a wide choice of after dark hotspots.
Our villa is just a 20 minute drive from the international airport and is strategically located to take pleasure in a culturally inspiring day trip to Ubud, hip and artsy beach village of Canggu, the best surf and breathtaking cliff view in Uluwatu and the sacred land of Tanah Lot.
Most of our guests enjoy renting a motorbike to ride around Seminyak and beyond. It is convenient, fast and fresh. We can recommend you to motorbike, car or bicycle daily rentals. We don't make any money out of it, we simply want to bring business to our local friends.
But hey, the villa is really 2 minutes away from the main 'playground' of Seminyak. So you will be mostly walking to beach, get your coffee, pick up your grocery, grab your takeout or even go out for dinner or nightlife!
Other Things to Note
Daily Cleaning, Airport Pick-up.
We have a villa manager who is going to be your consierge during your stay with us, one housekeeping who comes everyday in the morning, one gardener and one pool attendant who come once a week. We kindly ask guests to leave a tip for the staff before leaving.
Just let me know if you need after hours baby sitting (please specify number of hours notice required), spa treatments (provided by an outside spa therapist), motorbike rents, and driver with private car. I will be more than happy to arrange that for you or give you our handpicked recommended vendors.

This was the most beautiful home!!!! The villa manager picked me up at the airport and dropped me even with my delayed and late flight. The housekeepers were a joy. Every detail was covered. I just cant think of anything that was missing for us. The location is a short walk to the beach and right next to all kinds of shops and restaurants. I cant tell you enough how beautiful this home is. I would return!
My friend and I stayed in Hellen's villa for one week and fell in love with it! It's so beautifully decorated and comfortable we felt right at home and relaxed there.
It's in an amazing location just down a small lane off the main street in Seminyak that has many amazing restaurants, cafe's and clothing shops.
Hellen and her staff were very helpful and attending to any needs and requests we asked for.
We will definitely stay again when we return to Seminyak and recommend to anyone!
Absolutely brilliant stay in this villa. We had a faultless stay even when we arrived very late to checkin! The location is just fabulous and everything worked like clockwork. Dayu (the housekeeper) was very helpful and Hellen and Dany were very friendly when we bumped into them in Cafe Bali! Would thoroughly recommend this villa. It was the perfect kickoff to our 2 wk holiday in Indonesia and has set the bar very high for our travels.
Will recommend to all my friends and family and definitely be coming back! Villa was beautiful and quiet. Dayu was friendly and very helpful. The location was amazing, walking distance to the main Seminyak strip of restaurants (1 min), Seminyak square (3 mins), beach (10 mins). Thank you Hellen and Dayu!!
Lovely little private oasis in the heart of where you want to be in Bali. Thanks Hellen!
Hellen was most welcoming and her staff, Dayu and Luhsari, we're exceptional. We were travelling with a two year old and Hellen and her staff catered for all our needs, including a baby cot, car seat, and the wonderful Luhsari who babysat our daughter and formed a beautiful relationship with her. We were sad to leave and look forward to visiting again soon x
The villa was very well located - right at the center of Seminyak but in a quiet and private area. The villa was spacious and the pool area was fantastic (especially with ice cold Bintang!). We did not get to meet Hellen but the villa manager Dayu made sure that we had everything we needed.

About the Host, Hellen
Hello! We are Portuguese-Indonesian/Dutch couple. I am an artist and my husband is in venture capital real estate business. We love travelling and have been to every continent around the world, and for the moment, we call Bali and Amsterdam our home :)
Living in Bali means having some of the world's best waves and beaches in our doorstep - we can do what we love with people we love more often. I like being able to surf or play on the beach with our little boy after work - or having a sweet ride in the paddies. Bali is truly an opportunity to enjoy your life differently and Airbnb makes it possible for us to share these awesomeness with people from accross the globe.
At our homes, we would help all the way we can to make you feel like you are in a home away from home! :)

The best croissant in Bali is freshly baked here every morning. They also have good selection of French-style bread and great coffee!Jalan Laksamana Basangkasa Bali 80361
Good WiFi as are the breakfasts, coffee, salads and sandwiches. And as the name suggests, there’s a grocery/deli attached. Delivery service available. Be aware that during high season it fills fast!
The menu is large, bold consistently a hit. Service is prompt attentive. U feel like youre going to pay a fortune eating here until you find that a plate of home-made fish raviolis only costs $5!Kuta Bali

Dine under the chandelier, surrounded by eclectic antiques ala vintage cafe. Fantastic food and drinks, and divine desserts. This place breaks up a shopping day very nicely.Seminyak Bali 80361
One of our favorite spots in the area to meet friends as well as to get stuff done on our laptops. The decor at this shabby chic place is just lovely the food is very well priced.Kuta Bali
Pull up a stool here and enjoy the cute decor — think whitewashed rattan walls, granny-styleflowers-in-vase paintings — while sipping a smoothie and munching on a muffin. Great light and organic food.
