Our cool and comfortable bedroom with king-sized bed, en-suite bathroom and french doors to the garden is a perfect haven for birdwatchers. Located among fields 1km north of Sanur, it's an ideal place to relax and watch birds & kites fly.
This master bedroom has traditional Balinese doors opening out to a large living room with views across the ricefields to Sanur Beach, french doors opening out to the garden, and a bookshelf of interesting books about Bali and beyond. The en-suite bathroom is semi-outdoors.
Guests have access to a shared poool (with its own bathroom & toilet) as well as the shared kitchen and dining room. Breakfast is included, and you can join communal lunches and dinners with overnight notice. Shared parking space is available for guests coming from the main road. There is also a separate access to the beach which is usually locked from the inside.
Interaction with Guests
We invite you to join the table at breakfast time (7:30 - 9 am). If you prefer to have your breakfast later you'll find it in the fridge with your name on it. Do tell us what kind of breakfast you like.
Just over 100m to a surf beach that is popular wiith locals on Sundays, attracting a range of snack vendors, the neighborhood is relatively quiet and peaceful during the week, yet close enough to walk to Sanur, and easily access most parts of Bali via the Ngurah Rai and Ida Bagus Mantra Bypass roads. We can arrange driver with a car or rental motorbike, or bicycles with prior warning.
The ocean-side pathway (ideal for walking or cycling) connects south all the way through Sanur to Blanjong, and north to the Ayung rivermouth temple. Otherwise it's more practical to get around by car or motorbike (rental available, we can help arrange) as our access road connects to the Ngurah Rai Bypass - 2km to Sanur, 6km to Denpasar, 25km to Ubud. The airport can be reached in 15 to 30 minutes with the new toll road. If you land before 8PM, you can catch the Sarbagita bus from the airport to our neighbourhood. Best you hop off at the bus stop AFTER the Sanur KFC traffic lights. We are happy to pick you up there (but you'll need to phone us when you get there).
We LOVED staying with Kadek and his mother Sarita. Their place is really wonderful. We had stayed in 3 other airbnb places in Bali and left our last 4 days open. Kadek responded right away to my request and was awesome about answering my many questions as I wanted our last 4 days in Bali to be perfect. He sent directions in English and Indonesian which helped a lot as their place was a bit hard to find in the dark.
The room is wonderful - breakfast great and the whole family is super sweet. You can ask in the morning to have a traditional dinner made that night and we really enjoyed doing that one night, and eating with the family. Sarita's daughter took me to a yoga class the first morning we were there - that was great!! They are super helpful and generous. Great experience staying there.
Their pool is nice and refreshing. The sitting area - living room is open on 3 sides and the view of the rice fields is magnificent. Bikes for about $2 a day made the 15 min ride into Sanur really easy! The beach out front is a 5 min walk through a rice field and you can swim there - but I preferred to ride down to the hotels and rent a beach chair for the day.
A great experience. Highly recommended.
We got into Denpasar on New Yesr s Eve and we were really pleased to have a driver waiting for us at the airport Prearranged by Kadek . Other people were waiting in a long line for a taxi and we were able to walk straight through. ( a big thanks to Kadek) .
We also purchased sim and data for 170,000 ( told later a little expensive but we are happy with it and it has worked everywhere in Ind even on Gilis and mountains in Lombok)
The house is in Sanur , 2 paddy fields from the beach. The beaches here are black sand do don't come expecting to see the white sandy beaches advertised in travel brochures. ( you get these on Gili). Sanur is quieter and cleaner than Kuta. Go to Kuta if you want night life and dirty beaches along with street vendors who constantly hassle you. Street Market along sea front walk in Sanur quite cheap but checkout prices in supermarkets in centre of Sanur first if you are not sure.
The house is a family house , kadek's mum is an expat New Zealander and very helpful.
They rent out several rooms. Ours was near the pool with very good AC. The bathroom is outside and we were not sure if we shared it with others or not as there was a door to the outside as well as into our room and as someone tried to come in while we were in there we were careful to leave it open when we had finished.
The room was really clean with very good mosquito nets.
Nice view onto paddy fields from terrace and room when you open the double doors. A beautiful garden and pool really good.
Need a lot of insect repellant for outside but this is true of everywhere in Bali. ( large sized ystripy white ones carry
Yellow fever )
As it is a family home there is a lot of life and if you are traveling with kids this could be very good .
You also get free access to the kitchen which is a nice change from other airbnbs in Indonesia which advertise as an Airbnb but are hotels with their own restaurant.
It would be nice to find shower gel and shampoos provided but I mentioned this when I was there and they said they would look into it. Having travelled since around Bali /Gili/Lombok some provide and some don't.
One thing you need here is transport , either hire a scooter (50,000) or a driver (40 to 50$ for a day out) .
It takes 15mins to walk to Sanur along sea front.
A nice place to relax in away from busy Kuta and Semynak
Count approx 250,000 for airport pick up.
Wifi connexion better than any others we have found here !
Really good coffee , they grind it themselves !
Amazing place in sanur. It was the perfect choice for us, quiet and welcoming. Since it was Christmas we got lucky and meet several members of Kadek's lovely family. the house and it's surrondings are incredibly beatiful and whitin a short distance of the beach and city center. Thank you very much!
Beautiful traditional Balinese house, ideally located next to Sanur beach, with the best hosts you could ever imagine - Sarita and her son Kadek will instantly make you feel home, they are such genuinely nice people. I was even invited to join them for dinner after getting to their beautiful house. Everything is enjoyable there : the quietness of the place, the swimming pool when you want to get cooler, the generosity and kindness of the hosts... would definitely recommend this place.

Born and raised in Bali until graduating from highschool, I pursued tertiary education in New Zealand and Canada. I'm now living in Bali where I manage my grandfather's homestay. This AirBnB account is created mostly to help my mum (born in NZ, has lived in Bali for over 40 years) get guests for her BnB.
