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.
It was a wonderful villa near the beach! Michelle did everything possible! She rent a motor bike for us- it was totally traditional to drive with it! We drive everywhere - to the beach/kuta/seminyak! You should do this- it was wonderful!
Putu pick us up at the airport and we drive to the villa ! It was very nice and familiar!
We love the villa and all the small things in there! It was the best place in whole Bali!!!
We would like to thank you Michelle!
And we love to come back again!
Many thanks for all!!!
Michelle was incredibly patient and accommodating before and throughout our stay in Bali. Since the places we wanted to go are popular, she even assisted in making all reservations for us which was very very helpful, we would not have been able to get those places if not for her! Beautiful villa and interesting cafes and shops in the Canggu area. Definitely quieter compared to Seminyak/Kuta area but that’s why we liked it! Thank you again for the extremely smooth and relaxing vacation. Highly recommended!
This beautiful villa is in a perfect location close to the beach and surf breaks. The villa itself is so beautiful and private, and Michelle and her right hand Kaban are the perfect hosts!
I loved staying here and wished I didn't have to go! My husband and I will definitely be making this our home away from home when we return to canggu.
What a fantastic place! It exceeded our expectations by far. The villa itself is exactly how it appears in the pictures - lots of space with a beautiful plunge pool and decking area that catches the sun from early in the morning. Michelle is a fantastic host - extremely kind, caring and welcoming. She has great knowledge of the area, and we were able to use her recommendations which made our stay even more enjoyable. The villa is right by the beach, and a short walk to a nice restaurant/bar called Old Man's which overlooks the surfers which is fun. There are some great bars in Seminyak which are a short drive away - 50,000 each way in a taxi. I would highly recommend Hidden River Villa to all.
