My house sits one km from the beach and is set back 50m back off the main road in Seminyak, Bali's capital of cool with some of the best restaurants, spas, cafes, boutiques in Southeast Asia. The house is a cool, open plan villa with a courtyard,a living room that opens to the garden on two sides, an air-conditioned TV room with home theatre, a great kitchen, ceiling fans, high ceilings, a hammock, a dining room, and two air-conditioned bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. There are plenty of plants and a huge mango tree which provides oodles of shade. there are plenty of daybeds and sofas, two dining tables and a picnic table in the garden. I don't have a pool but the beach at Double Six is so close, why would I bother? I have a cat, who is named Kick (Please don't take this literally) and he's very chilled.
What you can expect is a very comfortable, tropical style home that is peaceful, cool, and perfectly conducive to chilling out. A maid comes in six mornings a week to clean and do laundry, and I have a gardener/ handyman who comes by three times a week. The house is great for entertaining and the kitchen is well outfitted with all appliances, breakfast bar, a large fridge and a new oven, making it very conducive to self-catering. I also have unlimited WiFi and a fish pond with koi, goldfish and two turtles.
It also has high walls all around so is very secure.
It's right on the main street less than 50 metres from Bintang supermarket, a spa, cafes, local restaurants, boutiques. In fact you can't get more central than this. There's even a small tourist booth at the end of my driveway. Oh, and there's a wine shop one minute away which is open late. The taxi rank is right outside the supermarket.
Just treat my home with the respect you would show your own. No smoking in the bedrooms or TV room and no dodgy strangers invited back - I don't want people to case the joint. Smoking is fine in the dining and living room. And please show my cat some love.
Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
