Interaction with Guests
Totally up to the guests. Some need to relax and unwind. They want total privacy. Other than a few questions about local cafe's I don't see them for the rest of their stay . A few like to interact a lot more . I leave that up to them. Nothing worst than a host that won't leave you alone! The guest house is at the rear of my villa. We share the front gate and driveway and that is all . I live in the main house, so close bye to answer any questions or help in anyway required.
Canggu use to be remote and bordering on Rural . It always has been a perfect area for surfing with lots of good surf breaks within walking distance . Surf schools in abundance .Lots of massage parlours cheap or middle range such as Your Time at Canggu just for a little more pampering !
Progress has arrived and now we don't have to leave the area for good cafe's such as Betelnut, Canteen , Avacado, Crate, B J 's burgers, Bumi's great local food. Several Dinner with Bar and live music options such as Deus and Old Mans. The list goes on but Canggu still has not lost it's beauty or soul .
Walking, bicycle. And generally motor cycle.
Car rental , or just hire my local taxi drivers for the day around $50us and they will take you where you want to go and just wait for you to finish then bring you home.
Other Things to Note
Check In at 2pm
Check out at 11am .
Due to generally having guests check out and NEW guest checking IN on the same date , we need you to completely vacate the room by 11am so we can make sure the villa is lovely and clean for the new guest.
If your flight is leaving later that day you are welcomed to store your luggage in our office, until you leave BATU Bolong for the air port.
Consideration towards other neighbors with noise.
Michelle is a wonderful host. nice, engaged, always helpul. the house is beautiful, spacious, clean and very nicely decorated. you don,t have to worry about drinking water as Michelle provides it in a huge pot. her discreet house keepers clean the house for you every second day. the house is located 100 meters from the beach and there are some great bars and restaurants nearby to have breakfast, dinner and drinks. the house is in a very peaceful area where we loved to come back after busy days visiting Bali and its noisy and crowded towns. always her aquinted taxi drivers are at your disposal which makes your sightseeing much easier. we stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in July and we didn,t see a mosquito :-) Michelle is very comunicative and we had nice chats. I loved her and her husband Michel and also their fantastic girlfriend Michelle :0) I recommend this place a lot.

Hidden River Villa is just beautiful, we loved our short time here. Michelle is a friendly helpful and generous host. Kaban is there every time you need to ask something, and Putu our driver was fabulous too. Thank you Michelle for organising the motorbikes, we enjoyed using them locally to try out the great cafes in the area. Highly recommended!
This place was nice, quiet and comfy.
It wasn't so far from any tourist spot such as ubud of northside, and others around south kuta. It's reasonable this place is popular for pragmatic travellers. I was also so happy with michelle's kindness. she prepared 2 types(for body and air) of mosquito spray for us because I was worried about mosquito bites.
But if you're not always brave among big dogs, I wouldnt recommend this place. They have 3 dogs, and one of them seems like a pit bull terrior(very fierce dog). When Michelle wasn't in villa for her holidays, we couldn't enter the villa at night because one of dog was freely out with a snarl, and others was barking even though they were inside of main building. Michelle said free one is nice dog, but i couldn't feel confortable with this experience.
Michelle and her husband Michael were so wonderful and accommodating. They have a beautiful home and we feel very lucky to have stayed in their villa.
Michelle was so helpful with booking transfers and organised a bike for us for when we arrived. Michelle was also very respectful and gave us plenty of space and pivacy.
