Cool, welcoming and relaxing. The king bed and ensuite have quality linen and towels, the balcony overlooks treetops. This unique two storey timber structure is located within the same grounds as our Villa.
Conveniently located just 50m from Danau Tamblingan near the Hyatt Hotel, it is walking distance to everything.
The accommodation is affectionately known as the Coconut Cubby or Tree House. It is a separate self-contained two storey timber structure located next to the owners single storey villa. It was specifically designed as independent accommodation for guests.
Downstairs is a kitchenette with fridge, stove and sink and an undercover outdoor seating area. The bedroom, ensuite and balcony are located upstairs. The room has flyscreens, an air conditioner and fan and a safe.
The bedroom has sliding doors opening directly onto the balcony which overlooks lush green tree tops and captures Bali's balmy breezes. The ensuite is light and spacious with an open style shower.
Our villa has a private pool which guests are welcome to use. There is a washing machine available adjacent to the kitchenette. We also have 2 bicycles available for use by guests.
The room will be serviced daily by our maid, the lush villa grounds and pool are maintained by other staff.
Interaction with Guests
Being a separate self contained building it is easy for our guests to maintain their privacy. However it is equally easy for them to interact with us should they choose. We are an Australian couple who spend most of our time in Bali and are happy to share our local knowledge and experiences with our guests.
Our villa has open style kitchen, living and dining area immediately adjacent to the pool. Our bedroom is located on the opposite side of the pool from the Coconut Cubby.
AIR CONDITIONER AND LIGHTS:
When you are not in the Room:
1. Please DO NOT leave the air conditioner on.
2. Please turn off all interior lights.
3. At night when you are out, please only leave one downstairs or stair case light on.
When the air conditioner is in use please ensure all doors and windows are closed to improve cooling efficiency.
1. Please do not Smoke inside the room or bathroom.
2. Smoking is fine on the Balcony or in the open downstairs seating area.
3. Please use the ashtrays provided and empty them in the bin when you have finished.
Our House Rules about the Air Conditioning and Lights are based on the following considerations:
1. The room is not insulated and will not retain the cool air. The room will not take long to cool down when you are back in your room.
2. In Bali electricity is very expensive and in limited supply, unnecessary use can contribute to and increase Power Blackouts.
3. The price we offer this accommodation at reflects our expectation that power consumption is conserved.
If you are seeing this place and there is availability...BOOK NOW! My girlfriend and I visited Bali during our travels in Southeast Asia, and this was by far the best place we stayed. In fact, this was the best place I've ever stayed using Airbnb. Maureen and Garry were incredible hosts, and they made our trip great.
Maureen and Garry arranged for us to be picked up from the airport. Then Garry met us at the place and showed us around. The cubby is incredible. Garry designed everything, and it's heaven. The bed was super-comfortable, and the pool was very relaxing. Garry even has the bedroom built as "mosquito-free," which is great for SE Asia. Further, the place comes with two bikes, which me and my girlfriend used for a nice ride along the beach.
My next comments should show you how awesome Maureen and Garry are. Our friend was in SE Asia and flew to Bali. He wanted to stay near us, so he booked Maureen & Garry's White House down the street. M&G knew about this, and when my friend arrived (two days after us), they moved all of us to their luxurious two-bedroom villa property for NO CHARGE! I was kind of sad because we loved the cubby so much, but the two bedroom villa was unbelievable with a private room, maid, and all the works. Honestly, we stayed at there 80% of our time in Bali! Also to be noted, Garry gave us restaurant recommendations, and he has the hookups for all the tours.
Overall if you can stay in Bali, you need to come here. Maureen and Garry are the type of hosts that make Airbnb what it is today. I wish I could give this rating a 10-star but unfortunately I'm only allowed 5. Thanks Maureen & Garry, and if we ever come back to Bali, we're not staying anywhere but here.
The accommodations were exactly as described. We had a wonderful time, Garry and Maureen were great hosts. We ended up eating dinner with them a couple times. Sanur was the perfect blend of calm and relaxing while still being around restaurants and other establishments.
Pretty much exactly how the photos are. A really nice place. Quite close to everything and the beach is walkable. The hosts where really knowledgeable about all the local places and where happy to organise a driver if I needed it but I choose to walk as it really is close. Woukd recommend
Garry and Maureen are great hosts, Garry was able to give fab advice on where to eat and best places to go.
The property is private and quiet with a great pool.
There are all the amenities in the property which make it easy and functional.
When back on Bali I will definitely stay with Garry and Maureen again.
On the advice of Garry we went to the Art Cafe absolutely fab food and have the chocolate cake an OMG dessert.
Thanks again Garry and Maureen
Garry & Maureen answered a multitude of questions before we even arrived. The actual spot was even better than advertised. We really appreciated all the insights shared and recommendations for eating and shopping. Made it really easy. Also just enjoyed visiting and learning about their lives in Sanur & Australia. Truly appreciated the assistance in setting up a 3:30 am pick up to go to the airport.
Maureen and Garry are great hosts, I felt very welcomed, informed and taken care of! There are many nice cafés and yoga spots close to the bungalow and the beach is 5 minutes! Thank you for a great stay!
We had a lovely stay at Maureen and Garry's place. Its a very cozy and stylish apartment that has all you need. It is in a great location and we were really happy about the bikes we got to borrow, we used them a lot. Garry was very nice and helpful. I would really recommend staying here!

We are an Australian couple in our mid 40's who retired early to live in Bali. the Island of the Gods. We love the easy going laid back lifestyle in Sanur The weather is also a plus with the average daily temperature being 28 degrees (C) year round.
Garry loves motorbikes and has a few of them, including one with a sidecar which is fun to get around on. We also have pushbikes which we use to get around Sanur on. We tend to eat out most days at the many local eateries, nightmarkets or beach warungs (shops).
We are non smokers and social drinkers who enjoy a simple stress free life now.
We have another 2 bedroom villa just down the road which is also available for rent on the Airbnb website.
