Our cool and comfortable one bedroom apartment is a 3-min walk from the sand. Central location near shopping, great restaurants, etc. in Seminyak. Free Internet. Use of all hotel facilities: 3 pools, weight room, tennis, etc. Ready to move in!
Private one-bedroom condominium on the grounds of a well-located hotel complex in Seminyak, steps from the sand.
Why rent a small hotel room or a room in a house when you can enjoy a private, serviced 1-BR apartment located on the manicured grounds of an upscale hotel on the beach in the best part of Bali: Seminyak! Your unit is ~200 meters to the sand, in the most central part of Seminyak. 10 minutes walk to Bintang supermarket, near great restaurants, nightlife and shopping. 24 HR SECURITY, free parking and FREE INTERNET.
If you're unsure whether to stay at an expensive, less well-located house or a smaller space near the beach, our 45 sq mt/480 sq ft unit, being private, extremely well located and reasonably priced, is truly the best of both worlds. Avoid Bali traffic/beach parking hassles by being a 200m stroll from the sand.
You get use of all hotel facilities (swimming pools, weight room, tennis, etc.) maid service included. Reasonable daily/weekly/monthly rates available. High season is here--take a look at our condo before you rent a room in a house. Did I mention the free Internet?
If it is your first time to Bali I'm available to answer any questions you have and offer suggestions as to what to do on the island, as well as tips on restaurants, nightlife and surf spots.

Interaction with Guests
How much we interact is totally up to you. Enjoy your 1-bedroom apartment in privacy, but know that if you have any questions or problems that my wife and I are available 24/7 to make suggestions or help with anything.
Over the years we've had people working on projects for weeks at a time or just here to seriously unwind, and we've barely seen them. Our unit is perfect for that. (Yes my guy can help w/visa extensions if your plans change--we've done this quite a bit!)
We also have spent time with guests, having dinner together etc. My wife and I are friendly and like people, so as I say we're here and available, and however you want to spend your time, we can accommodate you!
Guests have told us our unit is terrific, but the location makes it even better.
There are so many small hassles you won't be dealing with: getting to the beach through Bali's worsening traffic, parking once you get to the beach, security concerns (we have 24/7 security), even local power outages, common at some times of the year won't be a problem since our hotel complex has a generator.
You'll have a kitchenette (refrigerator, microwave, kettle, toaster, sink, plates and silverware but NO burners for cooking, sorry) but Bali's restaurants are so inexpensive and with such high standards that you'll love exploring dining options. I have 6-8 favorite restaurants withing short walking distance, and dozens of very good ones just a $2 taxi ride away.
I'll direct you to the nice Balinese man with a laundry service that we use, just a short walk away.
The Bintang market is walkable, or a short taxi ride.
So it's all here really, everything you need and everything you want!
We are about 3 minutes to the sand, through the grounds of the hotel complex where we're situated, so getting to the beach and parking won't be something you have to deal with. There is a nice bunch of restaurants along the beach right near us,
so getting around is very simple. I personally just walk and take taxis.
If you want to rent a motorbike or a car for that matter, we do have free parking inside the complex.
If you prefer not to have a bike/car I recommend taking Bluebird taxis anywhere you need to go. They are clean and air-conditioned, the drivers speak English and always turn the meter on without being asked. The meter drop is less than US 50 cents and most trips will be 1 or 2 dollars.
Other Things to Note
You'll have a kitchenette, with a refrigerator, microwave, kettle, toaster, sink, plates and silverware but NO burners for cooking, sorry.
This unit is private with its own entrance. The balcony is shared with the next door unit, where my wife and I live. We are very respectful of your privacy, and in the 7 years of renting the unit I think we've gotten pretty good at striking a balance between being friendly/welcoming but giving guests all the space they need. How much we interact is totally up to you.
We encourage guests to regard the balcony as their own, we'll rarely be out there, though we do have a cat who comes on the balcony only.
I'm available any time for answers to any questions you have, before or during your stay, tips on the neighborhood and Bali generally.
Toms and his wife were wonderful hosts who were very helpful and accommodating - extremely nice people! The apartment is accurately described - very clean and comfortable with convenient access to the beach, all hotel amenities (pools, gym, room service) and ideally located near great restaurants and bars but away from the bustle of Kuta. Great hosts, great place, great vacation!
We had a great time at Tom's place. Tom is an excellent host and let us know all the best restaurants and things to do near the apartment. It was just like the description and photos. If you are planning a trip to Bali, I highly recommend staying here!
Very nice stay at the apartment, this is the perfect place to stay for a few days in the busy district of Legian Seminyak, yet extremely quiet and peaceful, such a luxury. And you can walk to the beach or stop by one of the great pools. The apartment is quite like as described, and Tom has been great welcoming and communicating with us. Overall a nice and pleasant stay.
Had a wonderful stay at Tom & Dian's apartment, very clean & tidy.Was more than happy with my stay.Both Tom & Dian are very helpful with local knowledge & make themselves readily available should you have any questions.Would definitely stay again & highly recommend staying in their apartment.
This place was perfect for us. Tom was very welcoming and met us in the lobby upon our arrival, was thoughtful enought to have a few bintangs and water in the fridge, and he accommodated our very late flight home with a late check out. The apartment was clean & met all our requirements, aircon was fabulous & included wifi and a well stocked library. 3 pools and direct beach access in the quiet area of Legian :) 5 stars :)
Great host, very nice apartment on a beautiful peace of property, right on the beach. The one thing advertised is that the kitchen has cooking capability/ facilities. This may have true at one time, but not any longer. As it only has a microwave, toaster and a kettle.
Lot's of restaurants close to the apartment with reasonable prices and we would have missed out on this place had we known there was no cooking capability as we would probably no have booked it. But all said and done. We were happy with this accomodation
Hi Patricia-- I think the ambiguity was that I ticked the 'kitchen' box in the listing when the unit has more of a kitchenette, which to me means a sink, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, kettle, dishes and silverware.
I'm always careful to explain this to guests if they ask me for clarification.
At any rate I un-ticked that box and now state twice in the listing that there are no burners for cooking. I do appreciate you helping me improve the listing though Pat and hope the unit worked for you and Mike otherwise. Happy travels to you!
The apartment was perfect was good and comfortable and just metres from the beach at Legian. Tom though very ill went out of his way to help especially when I landed up in a bit of a jam due to a geography blocked debit card. Definitely worth looking at if you are staying at or near Legian
