About this listing

Villa Cocoa Maya is available as a 3 or 4 bedroom villa on the Candidasa seafront, set just 20 metres back from one of the town’s very few stretches of sand beach.

The villa is fully staffed, including a cook, and is situated in a beautiful large garden.

The space

Villa Cocoa Maya is set just 20 metres back from one of the town’s very few stretches of sand beach. It has magnificent, sweeping ocean views across the ocean and there are a number of internationally celebrated dive sites in the area.

It is just a few minutes' walk to the centre of Candidasa where there are plenty of restaurants and shops.

The villa’s four large bedroom suites each have their own bathroom and large lounge areas, all with ocean views. Three of the suites also have a balcony. The suites are fitted with king-size beds, air conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and DVD players. Two extra mattresses are available for a maximum of ten guests to enjoy the villa.

There is an open-plan inside living/dining area, as well as a large outdoor covered lounge set back from the sea, and a dining terrace situated closer to the ocean. The large, flat garden is complemented by the massive 18m long infinity swimming pool.

It's all about relaxing!
We love to spend as many of our holidays at Cocoa Maya as possible but, when we're not there, we love to rent it out. You can expect a very relaxed beach holiday at Cocoa Maya. We have staff who will look after you, from housekeeping to cooking (we include breakfast in your rate), and there are lots of areas where you can just relax - the pool, the garden, the outside lounge, the Balinese bale - take your pick!

Villa Cocoa Maya does not offer self-catering, although the staff are more than happy to show you how they prepare the traditional Balinese dishes that we offer.

The ocean is warm and calm and has superb snorkeling literally right in front of the villa!

The villa is at the end of a quiet lane right on the beach. It is an easy five-minute walk to the main town of Candidasa where there are excellent restaurants and shopping. Many regular visitors to Bali comment that Candidasa is like southern Bali was forty years. It is a quiet fishing village but has more than enough in the town, and close by, to keep you entertained.

Location, location, location!
Our villa is quite unique in the area. We are located on a large double stand which is unheard of for villas in Candidasa, we have a white sand beach directly on our doorstep (most villas only have ocean access from a pier and do not have a beach), and we are a five minute walk from central Candidasa. A lot of villas in the area either have a beach, or are within walking distance of Candidasa, but we are unique in having both!

Guest access

Villa Cocoa Maya is a vacation rental property, therefore guests have access to the whole house during their stay. It is only ever rented to one group at a time.

Interaction with guests

Our five staff members are there to cater to your every need while affording you privacy at all times. They will work hours that suit you (within reason!)

We are not a self-catering villa. Our staff are excellent cooks and will provide you with meals from our reasonably priced a la carte menu (breakfast is included in your rate).

If you like we can buy the catch of the day from the fishermen and have a barbecue in the garden served with Balinese sambal - delicious!

You are under no obligation to eat at the villa, there are also excellent restaurants in the area.

Other things to note

We are not a self-catering villa, our staff provide simple, well-priced meals from our a la carte menu so all you have to do is sit back and relax!

Transportation provided by the villa is overpriced. So is some food. Other than that - best villa in Candidasa...

My friends and I spent an amazing stay in the Villa Cocoa Maya. The house is wonderful, as on pictures. There are very large spaces, bedrooms are so spacious and beds very confortable. The garden is quite big, just in front of the beach with an amazing swimming pool where you can stay all day long! And there is a small beach in front of the house where you can rent a typical boat to go to fish or dive. The area is quiet to spend amazing vacation. But you can also find some good restaurants, bars and beaches around the villa. The staff in the villa was absolutely perfect. Smiling, available, they took care of our every need while also appreciating our privacy. Mailie was absolutely perfect with us and very flexible. We definitely recommend this stunning villa!

Simply an amazing experience. A truly beautiful home with one of the only villas with direct beach access. Can't imagine anything better on Candidasa! Mailie was incredible to work with from start to finish. She responded to each of my inquiries within minutes and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. The staff at the villa was a delight - efficient, fun-loving and responsible - and they took care of our every need while also appreciating our privacy. It really is a stunning villa! We marveled at the furniture and decorating throughout and each immediately selected a room that fit our style. We were traveling with 6 adults so I loved that the rooms were separated enough that we all felt we had a great deal of privacy when we wanted it. I almost forgot to mention the fantastic food! And, the sweet staff took the extra effort to make us a local treat after noticing us admiring it. After staying in Seminyak on our last trip, we chose Candidasa because it provided the Bali experience without all of the people and traffic. We're so glad we made that decision. There's a lot to offer in this area. We were able to snorkel right from the villa and the staff coordinated a boat for us to snorkel a bit further out, which was fantastic. Very close to the monkey temple and a trip to the water palace is a must! Can't say enough about our time at this wonderful paradise. We just regretted not being able to stay longer.

My family and I had the most wonderful vacation at Villa Coco Maya. It is not a traditional airbnb since it is full-service, but it was great for a large group because we could just order food/drinks/transportation/boats/laundry/parties in minutes and with no hassle. Komang and her staff are wonderful and made us feel at home. 1. The house is beautifully furnished and has everything you could want. Grounds and pool are impeccable. 2. Services at the villa are reasonably priced and high quality. Water/tea/coffee/breakfast are included. Dining out on the patio is amazing. 3. There is some of the best 'barrier reef'-type snorkeling I have ever seen around right outside the villa. You can hire a boat to take you to Blue Lagoon, too. 4. Town is close-by and quite cute.

The house of Mailie is very beautiful with a great and amazing location on the beach. The pool in the garden overlooking the sea is beautiful. The rooms are very nice and spacious, each with a bathroom. We went to the beach front of the house but also to white sandy beach is a beautiful beach 15 minutes by motorbikes. We had a very good stay, I recommend the house. However, what is a shame is that we had no access to the kitchen and home services such as laundry service are paid. However, the house is fantastic.

Hi, my husband David and I love to travel and we really love travelling within our own beautiful country, South Africa, and to Bali!

David first visited Bali 17 years ago and fell in love with the island, its beauty and its people. He continued to visit over the years and we also honeymooned there. Since then it's been our staple family holiday destination with our two boys.

A few years ago we were fortunate enough to be able to find two beautiful villas, one in Ubud and one on the beach in Candidasa in eastern Bali. Tragically Bali is a long way from home so we don't get to go there are often as we would like. However we're happy to rent it out when we're not there!

Similarly we found our own little piece of the beautiful Overberg region in South Africa, where we love to watch the whales with a glass of wine on our balcony. And when we're not there we're happy for you to enjoy it too!
