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 est une hôte généreuse et disponible. Son bras droit Kaban est tout aussi adorable. La villa est très belle et très bien située. Plusieurs restaurants sont à proximité et la plage est tout près. Il faut vous louer un scooter pour profiter pleinement de votre séjour. Seminyak est aussi très facile d'accès en scooter. Nous avons pris un guide pour une journée selon les conseils de Michelle pour aller un peu plus loin vers les montagnes. Ce fut une journée merveilleuse!
Staying at Michelle's villa was a truly wonderful experience. Michelle made us feel so welcome with a lovely arrangement of flowers and had left a lovely hand-drawn and personal map of the area with recommendations of where to eat and the local facilities and amenities, from warungs (eateries) to spas to tour guide info. She was so honest in her description of the villa and it was exactly as she said it would be so there were no surprises, just a really lovely space to relax in and use as a base for our explorations. It was decorated beautifully and with a real sense of locality in it's decor. The villa was a mere two minute stroll to the beach and some lovely local cafes where you had a choice of real local cuisine or something from home if that was more to your fancy. Although Michelle was not there when we went we really felt welcome and were catered to by her staff in every way, Kaban was wonderful and not intrusive at all but equally available for any questions we had. A beautiful stay at a beautiful villa in a beautiful and magical country. Thank you Michelle for helping make our honeymoon so special!
Michelle is so easy to communicate with and was so helpful throughout the entire booking/stay. The Hidden River Villa is a dream- your own paradise. It is even more wonderful in person. The bed was incredibly comfortable; the pool great to take a cooling dip; the entire place very clean. Bali is hot and the villa is more open air style- air con only in the bedroom. The area of Canggu is a chill surfer’s spot but with enough to offer those not interested in the waves; many good places to eat. If you’re going to stay at Michelle’s, you’ll want to have a motorbike to get around, however you can walk to a few places. The beach is only 100m away- you can hear the waves crashing from the villa. Decent yoga also within walking distance. If it’s available, do not hesitate booking this place.
Pictures can be deceiving sometimes but not here, the villa was absolutely beautiful and just the right size for two. Well located to excellent food, bars, the beach - we especially couldn't get enough of Betelnut Cafe!! Michelle is a lovely host and made us feel so, so welcome during our short stay. We'll definitely be back!
I totally enjoyed my stayed with Michelle. She so warm and help help to help us settle in fast to the place and the surrounding. She helped us even before we arrive from the airport transfer, to surf lesson with David, places to eat (check out her hand drawn map when you arrive, informative to get you around the area) and also good recommendation to honest drivers like Putu and tour operator Wayanif you want to tour around Bali.
Such a joy to stay with her and the people she introduce us to. They have such warm personality.
She so motherly and you can feel it in her villa as the details in the home from fresh drinking water, insect repellent to make sure you are safe from the Mosquitos to lovely fresh towels and even toiletries.
The beach is just behind! Location is perfect!
Although this location is not the central busy area, we have no regrets staying with Michelle. Both Michelle and the villa supervisor Kaban made us feel at home. U can sleep late with no annoying sounds of traffic or people. The villa is airy and at night very soothingly lighted. We are 2 females and felt very safe staying there. The beach is nearer than I'd expected. We had a good time dining, drinking beer and watching the sunset at the nearby echo beach. The massage place nearby which Michelle recommended helped with the sores and aches from water sports. I will definitely return!
Though our stay was short at Michelle's villa, it has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Especially adored the daily walks by the beach to different eating places. There is a vast variety of food within a small area. Good food. Great music. And a very cheeky kitten whom Michelle has adopted will visit out villa from time to time and she is just adorable. Remember to ask for Lulu (the kitten) if you are a cat person. Lulu will make your fantastic trip an even more awesome one. Thank you Michelle!
Easy going, Love meeting guests from all around the world. Love food , good wine and great coffee ! We had a family holiday in Europe this year and stayed in some, very interesting airbnb flats. We enjoyed them more than hotels. Great experience !
