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.

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.
Great location in Seminyak, easy access to tasty restaurants and lots of great shops. Easy to flag a cab and explore surrounding areas too. Beautiful villa and pool to relax at and enjoy. Hellen and Dayu provide awesome local knowledge and are always more than happy to help :)
I would say that one of the highlights of our Bali vacation was our stay at the Seminyak villa. The location was perfect as a delightful oasis to rest and relax in, but yet close enough to walk to many restaurants and shops just around the corner--loved the Library coffee shop and Satay Bali restaurant. Communication with Hellen was so easy when making arrangements and she was as accommodating and lovely when meeting her in person. Lastly, our new friends Dayu, Yogi, and Luh Sari took such good care of us as if we were part of their extended Indonesian family. We look forward to a return trip sometime in the future. Terimi kasih!
Villa has a very good location, but there are some things which host should change. Wi-fi doesn't work at all during the whole time. DVD player doesn't work too. When the conditioner in the upper room had broken, villa manager just ignored that fact. Actually, the host should repair the villa and it will become great.
Hi Marina, thank you for your review. I'm very sorry about the inconvenient you had with the internet at the villa. Because of your feedback, I am happy to say that we have upgraded our connection to a high-speed fibre-optic internet after you checked out. Regarding DVD player and AC, I was personally checking the condition and it was working perfectly, however we found out that you might have reset it to a wrong mode. I have fixed them to the original setting and since I didn't hear from you again I assumed it worked just fine. My apologies. I could understand that some electronic devices can be confusing when you're not familiar with it.
We were trying to give our best to compensate the inconvenience you had with some tolerance for DISRESPECTFUL ACTS from you and your friends such as:
- letting an EXTRA GUEST of yours staying in the villa without extra charge. I also have to not that you never asked us for any permission to do such.
- not asking you for extra cleaning charge after you and your friends were BLASTING OUR FIRE EXTINGUISHER "for fun", and made huge mess and dirt in our home. It was not only a violation of the safety standard, but also very disrespectful act as guest in other person's house.
I hope you will be a more respectful and considerate guest in your next stays.
I had such a fantastic stay at the villa, it was calm and peaceful, a safe two minute walk to all of the restaurants and cafes in Seminyak. Dayu organised two wonderful sight seeing days, one to Ubud and another to Karma beach. She took such good care of me as I ended up traveling by myself. It was a very special holiday for me, made more special by Hellen's lovely villa, and Dayu's genuine, caring efforts. Thank you so much xxx
We loved staying at Hellen's villa in Seminyak. Tucked away on a little side street, it truly is located in the best place. So close to the Main Street with all the cafés, bars and restaurants but nice and quiet to enjoy the pool and lounge in peace. The villa was clean and cool with A/c is each bedroom. Dayu the villa manager is fantastic and provided us with some insiders knowledge of the best place to change $, get from A to B, etc. Breakfast at Cafe Bali is a must !
We had a fantastic 10 days over xmas and new years - Seminyak has changed rapidly in 2 years, but the villa is a great little oasis away from the heat and noise of the streets.
A blend of traditional Balinese with open social living areas and large eaves and then a/c cooled, sheltered bedrooms with large ensuites. We spent the majority of our time just enjoying the pool as a welcome break from the heat.
The villa is right in the heart of the action in Seminyak, a 3 minute walk from coffee, restaurants and bars and walking distance to Ku De Ta and the beach.
Hellen was a great help, and Luh Sari was a local gem - we loved our stay and if we go back to Seminyak we'll stay again.

Hello! We are Portuguese-Indonesian/Dutch couple. I am a mural artist and my husband is a tech and real estate entrepreneur. 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! :)
