About This Listing
Bedroom is roomy and very quiet. It can accommodate two people and has an direct access with the swimming pool. Enjoy the living room, dining room and kitchen in the Joglo, and the proximity with the most visited places of Bali.
Independent bedroom with its own acces, 2 doors, the entrance and the acces to the swimming pool. Bedroom standard hotel, bed queen size high quality mattress, private bathroom with bathtub and independent shower.
The bedroom is located in an estate of 2 houses. An antic Joglo, wooden house from Jawa full of carving, more than 120 years old, and a modern Balinese style house.
The villa is unique by its mixed style of Javanese and Balinese buildings. Also, the view on the rice paddies is amazing and the spot is very calm and quiet which make you sleep very well.
Guests have access to the Joglo, as living room, dining room and kitchen, to the swimming pools, garden and parking.
Also there is a ping-pong room for players. You can even come on my terrace or watch a TV sport event in my flat.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the villa in my private flat but the door is always open so I will be here to satisfy your every need or questions you could have.
And, anyway, there is a peaceful and friendly atmosphere between the guests, we even make BBQ or party, time to time, when everybody agree of course. It's friendly and there are many interactions between guests.
Canggu is a typical small village, very quiet, surrounded by rice paddies. The life of the village is rocked to the rhythm of ceremonies. The real Bali at only 15 minutes drive from Petitenget, Oberoy, the area for best restaurants, bars, nightclubs and luxurious hotels which have made the reputation of Bali nightlife. 5 minutes from Ecobeach, one of the best surfing spot in Bali. And, to end up, at 15 minutes drive, Tanah Lot, the most visited temple of Bali, and its golf knows as one of the most beautiful course of Indonesia .
There are many activities to do just around the villa but also many trips to do all around Bali or other islands. Rafting or canyoning inside the jungle. Well, all what Bali can offer you to enjoy your holidays and I have nice one to suggest. Have you ever dreamed of diving inside a old shipwreck? It's just amazing, let's talk about that when you will be there!!
To go around, the best is a motorbike or a taxi. You can also rent a car, with chauffeur if you need.
To come to my place from the airport, 2 options, you can take a taxi or if I am available at the time of your landing, ask me and it will be a pleasure to pick you up at Denpasar airport.
Also I can help you to rent a motorbike (4$/day), a car (30$/day) or private car with driver (60$/day). Prices will go down for long term renting.
We don't have stricts rules, just a common sense of respect and education, which is a best receipt to harmonize relations and create happiness. Further more, the villa is big and displayed for the best quietness and privacy of every one. The most important is that every guest have an happy and relaxing stay, that's what holidays are for, isn't it? So, I will do every things I can to make you feel at home.
George and Rudi were kind enough to personally pick us up from the airport at 1 AM, and even treated us to a midnight snack. On the ride to the villa, I mentioned wanting to rent a motorbike, and George had one parked outside my room by the very next morning. My boyfriend and I were zipping around exploring the area within hours of our arrival!
We personally loved the location of the villa. It was away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas, which afforded us peaceful nights and serene mornings. We highly recommend that you rent a motorbike if you stay here, because the beaches (Echo, Berawa) and good restaurants are at least a couple kilometers away and you don't want to make that long walk if you are starving in the morning. Taxi is always an option, but that can add up after a while and driving your own motorbike is more fun anyway.
As for the villa itself, we loved being able to come home from a long hot day of exploring to a beautiful garden, a refreshing dip in the pool, and a large spacious AC'd bedroom. The Joglo even has a pool table and a ping pong table, which was tons of fun when we felt like staying in. George has the most adorable kitty too ("Anpat"), who will steal your heart if you're not careful.
The only issue we had during our particular stay was that the wi-fi became spotty toward the end, so we would motorbike to a nearby cafe that offered free wi-fi. It wasn't the end of the world, but hopefully that's been resolved now.
All in all, we loved our stay here. We even extended our stay by an extra week, for 2 weeks total. It truly felt like home toward the end, and we were sad to leave. If we ever come back to Bali, we'll be giving George a call! Thanks for everything!
Nous avons passé 12 nuits dans la villa de Georges. Et globalement, notre expérience fut réussi. La villa est assez éloignée de l'agitation touristique, au milieu de la nature. Elle n'est pas loin de la plage et il y a des endroits très sympa pour sortir, dîner, boire un verre pas très loin. Georges est un hôte agréable, disponible et qui nous a donné énormément de conseils pour nos visites du pays. Il se souci du bien-être des ses clients et nous a notamment ramené à l'aéroport, booké des excursions...
La chambre est simple (fidèle aux photos). Le ménage y est fait sur demande à Georges. Il faut savoir que l'on est souvent amené à croiser des araignées, sauterelles, lézards et autres insectes.. c'est l’inconvénient de la localisation de la villa prêt des rizières.
Il y a pas mal de passage dans la villa mais l'ambiance est agréable et c'est plutôt calme.
En résumé, si vous recherchez tranquillité, bons conseils et simplicité, je vous recommande ce lieu.
Georges is an extremely friendly host who would share his life story with you. He is also very helpful and kind, as is his house cleaner. His villa is very beautiful and close to nature. Definitely an exciting place to stay in Bali! The way to get to his place is a tad tricky tho, and the terrain necessitates a careful drive.
Thanks for allowing me to stay in your place
It's been a nice experience, spacious room with access to swimming pool, large garden and the best part.. friendly and helpful host
Quite far from airport but definitely a good choice if you want peaceful place to stay in Bali, any way Thanks for letting me use your bike :)

Hope to stay again someday

Staying at Georges place was the best choice we could have made.
The location was perfect, just straight down 5 mins with motorbike and you get to echo beach, also 15 mins away from Seminyak an area full of bars and restaurant.
Rooms were nice and large each with independent bathroom and a/c, internet wifi is basically reachable from every spot of the villa.
The villa is so peacefull, with a large garden where once in a while Georges organized barbecues with the guests of the house. You really will feel like at home there.
If you are thinking to go to bali and not staying in a hotel then write a mail to Georges right now, you wont regret it.
Wish I could get back there tomorrow.
Hope to stay again at Georges place in the future.
See you soon my friend take care and enjoy.
Greetings from the cold europe

About the Host, Georges-Alain
Hi, my name is Georges, I am a french expat who lives in Indonesia since several years. Nearly 10 years in the furniture business in Jawa, then I settle down in Bali for various reasons, but mostly for its practicle mixed open range of activity and pleasure such as surfing, swimming, tracking, mountain bike… The happy living style of life, kindness of the balinese people and a nice mix of different cultures and religions between the indonesians and the foreigners from all over the world, this is Bali and this is quite unique. Now I am working in developing local business between Jawa, Bali, Lombok in different fields so if you pass by and I am at home I will be pleased to talk with you about Indonesia and all its amazing culture, history, and economic future.
Take care and be happy it is the most important, sampe jumpa (see you).
