The Space

Bali’s best kept secret is its secluded West coast where you will find Balian Beach. Nestled between volcanic cliffs, the beautiful black sand beach and crashing waves provide the perfect escape.

The Beach House offers a spacious master bedroom and open living area only steps away from the beach with views of the main surf break.

The Beach House has a fully equipped kitchen, free WiFi, iPod docking station with indoor/outdoor speakers and large sun deck all overlooking your own beach-side swimming pool.

Nightly rate also includes guest laundry, daily maid service, bottled drinking water, iPhone with local SIM card and a fully catered cooked breakfast with freshly brewed coffee or tea and tropical fruit platter.

Lunch and dinner can also be arranged on request or it's only a short 5 minute walk down the beach to the local restaurants. During the wet season (Dec-Mar) this can require a brief swim, so alternatively we have a scooter available for the short trip.

The Beach House is approximately 2 hours drive from Bali's international Airport. We highly recommend you let us arrange your airport pick-up/drop-off as we have reliable English speaking drivers who know the location of the villa. The cost is approximately US$40. On the way to the villa the driver can stop for you to buy any supplies you may need and show you a safe place to exchange money.

We offer a selection of surf boards for hire and can organize personal surf lessons. Motorbike and car rentals are also available upon request. Private in-villa massages and spa treatments can be arranged during your stay.

We are happy to help you plan day trips to other local attractions and activities in Bali. These include horseback riding on the beach, snorkeling or diving on the beautiful reef surrounding West Bali's marine park at Menjangan Island, sunset visit to Bali's famous Tanah Lot water temple,
mountain drives through UNESCO listed rice terraces and volcanic lakes or day trips to Ubud and Kuta for the shopaholics.

The Beach House is the perfect location to just relax and unwind. Let our friendly staff spoil you while you take in the amazing views. You can be sure to enjoy the tropical holiday you deserve.

  • We've been home from our Bali Surfari Family Adventure a few days now and I am still daydreaming about our lovely stay at The Beach House at Balian. The guest house on the beach is everything you have already read in the numerous positive reviews. Stylishly designed, well appointed and positioned right in front of the surf break, -and with no neighbors! The hosts were so great; check-in and check-out totally seamless. Jamie was very congenial and helpful in every way. We also loved the companionable pet dogs, pigs and ducks. I fell in love with the staff, Agus and Ayu. Don't miss an in-house massage with Ayu, she's magic. Also the ladies are very good cooks, and Balian doesn't offer many yummy warungs, best to just let them cook dinner for you ;)

  • I'm a little torn about writing a review for The Beach House. On one hand, telling too many people about this little slice of paradise lets the cat out of the bag and too many people in on the secret. On the other hand, The Beach House is so wonderful, it's only fair to share it with others. Despite having visited Bali numerous times, this was a new part of the island for us. It's out of the way and the peace and solitude suited us perfectly. Situated practically right on the black sand beach, the villa is quintessentially Balinese in design with with bales, pavilions and outdoor bathroom surrounded by gardens and ponds. The decor is elegant and simple featuring Javanese wood carving. It's fully kitted out with all mod cons. Jamie & Wendy are great hosts - there when you need them and not when you don't. The food prepared by Ayu and Agung was fresh and delicious. And their welcoming smiles infectious. And of course a special mention of their charming driver Ketut.

  • Everyone who will come to The Beach House will love it and doesn't want to leave this beautiful beautiful place. I can't say how much we enjoyed our time there. The Beach House is situated in a breathtaking garden with old palm trees and all exotic flowers that make this place so wonderful. From your breakfast table you will see the farmers picking coconut from the trees and the sea with fine black sand right in front of you. 5 Minutes by walk along the beach there is a surfer's paradise with nice restaurants and beach bars. We did not meet Jamie and Wendy themselves, but they cared about us as they where there. Agus und Ayu were reading every wish from our lips. The Beach House itself is in a very luxurious, tasteful balinese style. We stayed there for 5 days, which was too short. It was our first time in Bali and our first location. Every location after that experience could have been beautiful but never was as beautiful as The Beach House. Big compliments to Jamie & Wendy, Agus & Ayu and thanks again for a wonderful wonderful time!!!

  • We just returned after spending 4 nights at the Beach House.

    Booking with airbnb was easy and communication with our hosts Jamie and Wendy was excellent.
    They organised our transfer and during our stay were available for any requests we might have.
    So without wanting to repeat too much that has already been said. This place is perfect. if you want a quiet location to relax or for your honeymoon look no further.
    What I loved the most was the attention to detail. From the layout of the house itself to how everything felt like quality. from an airplay stereo system with speakers inside and outside to the beauty of the inifinity pool. words and pictures actually fail to describe how this place makes you not want to leave it even tho there is not that much to do.

    Our days consisted of taking a walk on the empty beach. hanging out by the pool or in the living area staring at the sea and listining to the waves.
    at night we would take a swim in the beautifully lit pool and watch the stars.

    Doing nothing without getting bored never seemed easier.

    As the other reviewers mentioned Agus and Ayu were great. While taking all work off your hands they still have some time for a friendly chat and nothing ever feels too much to ask.
    We enjoyed the different breakfast varitions and the excellent dinner cooked to our wishes.
    The masssages by Ayu were excellent as well.

    This place is very private and remote. Of course Jamie, Wendy, Agus and Ayu can be reached by the provided iPhone but most of the time you will be by yourself. This place is perfect for unwinding or romance but not if you require outside entertainment.

    For us it was perfect and we will be back ;-)

  • What a fantastic place the beach house is.
    A truly Balinese experience to be had. Great location near the beach and the hosts Wendy and Jamie were only too happy to help us with anything we needed. Our kids loved going up to the house every morning collecting the eggs, coconuts and making fresh juices. Agus and ayu were the best and the kids wanted to take them home. I highly recommend anyone wanting to visit the west coast of Bali to check out Balian. Thanks guys.

  • We can nothing but repeat, what all the other posts say: The Balian Beach House is absolutely amazing!! Better than any picture can say. We really loved our stay and didn't want to leave after four nights. We have travelled half of Bali, but this is the best place we have been to. Very quiet and situated in a beautiful garden, on an empty beach, but still with some nice restaurants at walking distance down the beach. (The walk back through the river was a bit of an adventure, but you can always take the longer way on the road.)
    The two houses, connected by a fish pond, are a fantastic mixture of traditional and modern. The two ladies Ayu and Agus are very discreet, but also great to have a chat with, great cooks, we could not ask for more.
    Wendy is a perfect host, extremely friendly, very easy to communicate with and her answers through email were super fast, at anytime. She was always available, when we needed her during our stay. Unfortunately, we didn't have the chance to meet Jamie.
    We don't think anything can come much closer to paradise than this!

  • We just got back to London and cannot stop thinking about how great our last few nights in Bali were thanks to Wendy and Jamie’s warm hospitality at The Beach House. Similar to the previous post on here, we agree that if you want to truly escape the touristy parts of Bali, then this place is worth the 2-hour commute from Seminyak. The highlights for us were definitely the massages by Ayu and Agus’s excellent Balinese culinary skills. Our general experience is that once you arrive to The Beach House, you really don’t want nor need to leave this house! The place is a few meters away from the beach, the infinity pool and sunbathing lounge area provide the right environment to simply relax, read and sunbathe. We definitely look forward to returning to Bali next year and hopefully get the chance to stay at The Beach House since words alone cannot fully describe how beautiful this place really is in person. The place is even is as beautiful, if not even more than the pictures displayed on here.

  • Jamie and Wendy were extremely welcoming and friendly. They are great hosts. We highly recommend them to anyone.

  • This is well worth the 2 hour drive from Seminyak! We absolutely loved our stay at the 'Beach House' and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle for a few days or more...
    Wendy was so accommodating as were the two lovely house helpers. You have everything you need here to just relax and unwind.
    Make sure you organise massages and a traditional Balinese meal through the ladies- just delicious!
    We will definitely be back- hopefully with our boys but in the meantime will be recommending this place to our friends and family.
    Thank you Wendy and Jamie- you are on to something great here.

  • My husband and I spent a wonderous 5 nights at the Beach House. We just loved the open air concept and feeding the koi's in the ponds throughout the house. Jamie and Wendy were very accommodating, even letting us borrow the scooter to head into the village for dinner (it was too far to walk in the heat). The two housekeepers were such sweethearts. They went above and beyond. The one girl gave the best massage we had on our entire three weeks in Bali! The house can get a tad hot in the afternoon, so the fan and AC above the bed was much needed and appreciated. If you're looking to escape and simply enjoy...this is your place.

About
We first came to Bali over 11 years ago, and have now lived here for the last 6 years. We enjoy the relaxed and peaceful lifestyle that this area of Bali offers. Balian Beach is the perfect location for morning and evening beach walks. We both enjoy being active and healthy so you will see us in the water surfing or outdoors enjoying our little piece of paradise. We have both travelled extensively but now find it hard to leave our home which is Bali.
