A truly beautiful and cozy home we like to share with you. A home with all modern amenities, swimming pool (With optional fence) and amazing staff.
Just an 8 minute stroll to the beach! (IF you want to leave home)

We just installed an amazing new Audio / Video Centre with a motorized projector screen, HD Projector, Media Centre with over a 1,000 Videos, TV Shows & Documentaries! (LOTS of Kids Movies as well)
Lots of music on the Media Centre and you can stream from own device.

The space

Our Bali Villa is our cozy "escape from Hong Kong". It is a vacation house for us and we hope and trust it will also create great experiences for you when we are not occupying the place.

The villa features 2 bedrooms that opens up to the patio, the garden and the pool. There are also two extra (kids) bedrooms which are cleverly designed so that kids cannot reach pool on their own.
There are also 2 full NEW bathrooms with plenty of resting area that brings you the peacefulness of Bali. Amazing bathtubs have been installed for relaxing pleasure.
There's also a private pool with sun deck to let you enjoy the sun in Bali.
The pool has a removable gate for people with young children. (An AMAZINGLY comforting thing I can tell as a dad of two young daughters!)

We have great staff taking care of you, and mending the gardens as well as our pool.
Our neighbor is our "Residence Manager" and she is always there to organize things for our guests; tips and any other matters that may arise. (She is a jewelry designer so she might even show you her beautiful designs!)

The house has been decorated for and by ourselves so not for professional rental. People has said many times "it feels like home" and so we hope it will make you feel like home too.

Sanur is a wonderful place in Bali. From the house it is 3 minutes walk to the center of Sanur with very nice restaurants, shops and supermarkets.
Sanur is famous for its beautiful coastline and beach and is only an 8 minute stroll from the house.

Guest access

You have access to the whole house, grounds including swimming pool, garage.

Interaction with guests

I will interact with guests by email via Airbnb and/or direct and we have a Residence Manager on site that will take care of you at all times.

Other things to note

For people with young children our removable pool fence just makes their holiday wildly better! We have two young daughters and since we have the fence holidays become so much better. The peace of mind from that is highly underestimated!

Another thing to note is that our home is listed for "8 people". This, when you read the beds configuration, is meant for 4 Adults and 4 Children. (Bunk Bed in each children room)
We do have Baby cots and these can of course be placed anywhere.

This was a perfect holiday for our family! This is an amazing villa with amazing hosts! Things we loved: walking distance to a grocery store, breakfast, and beach. Helper who cleaned up after us and did our laundry. ENTERTAINMENT area!!! It was amazing. Huge screen. Tons of movies, shows...for adults and kids! The pool! The outside shower! The things that disappointed us. The bathtub is so large that there was not enough hot water to fill it up. We could only get a few inches of hot water. So taking a bath was not really an option:( That's it! Everything else was amazing!! Thank you again for a great holiday!

Response from René:
Dear Jonathan and Sarah... GREAT to read your comments... BEAMS of enthusiasm which makes us happy to read of course. "Apologies" for the size of the bathtub... Indeed the architect got a little err...ahead of himself... :-)! We DO prepare this bathtub for people that want to so the staff makes sure it is ready, filled up and warm... Something for next time maybe... ;-)?

House and pool were amazing. Very inviting and relaxing. We loved sitting in the outdoor living room while reading and listening to music. The whole villa was very quiet, very rarely heard any outside noises. House is perfectly set up for 2 couples to stay. The way the bedrooms are separated gives lots of privacy, while still having comfortable common areas. The on site staff were very kind and helpful. Felt very safe with them manning the front door. Location was good. Short walk to the main road which had all the restaurants and shops and provided a quick access path to the beach.

This villa is beautiful. Rene was so accommodating where as we booked the night before our arrival. Suzanne, who is the house manager, was so helpful and informative, had great recommendations and knew the area very well! We always felt safe and comfortable in the villa, I will definitely be staying again when I return to Bali! Thank you so much for everything!

From the start our experience was great! We were exploring Bali for our honeymoon and booked the Villa just 3 days in advance. Rene responded to our request within hours (possibly faster, we just hadn't checked sooner). We were greeted on our arrival by Zann, the house manager, despite battling a little illness and the rest of the staff. Wayan and Made the housekeeper and gardener were great! They always greeted us when we returned with huge smiles and made us feel so at home. Wayan made breakfast with ingredients we picked up from the market each morning. We really only used the back half of the house as it was just the two of us though the front half looked great as well. The outdoor living space was just as pictured and immediately became our favorite spot in the house. The pool was bigger than appeared in the pictures and a great place to cool off. The bedroom was great, though I think the AC may have been miscalibrated as we set it at 23C before bed and nearly froze! No worries, we adjusted up to '26C' and slept great the rest of the night and subsequent nights. A gigantic beautiful outdoor bathroom was attached to the backroom and it was a real treat. Throughout, we really liked the decoration and style of the villa. Accessibility to Sanur was just a quick stroll down the Jalan though we quickly decided we preferred a cab due to the heat. Fortunately, Rene and staff have a terrific binder full of information that they have assembled in the front room with all the info you could think of wanting and more. When we departed everyone gathered to see us off! We wish we could have stayed longer. We would definitely recommend this cozy Villa to anyone interested in staying in the Sanur area. Thanks to the whole staff!!!

Response from René:
Dear Jacob, You are so right about the AC :-)! "miscalibrated" is a good word. Buying electronics in Bali is sometimes a challenge...often the AC Remotes are a different brand than the AC units...! I think you nailed it though at 26C because that is exactly the setting I end up with after I wake up as an Eskimo...Even though it is our (URL HIDDEN) gets me always that first night... Glad to read though that you had a great end of your honeymoon...makes us truly happy to hear that! All the best, Rene.

Really a wonderful place. We joked about living the lifestyles of the rich and famous, while we were there. We liked it so much that we extended our stay. We simply didn't want to leave.

My name is René…
I am a Dutchman living in Asia for 20 years. My first three years here were spend in Brunei Darussalam. January 2000 I moved to Hong Kong which I call home now for 17 years.
It is here in HK that I found the love of my life, Maria, whom I married in 2009. We are now the proud parents of two amazing and beautiful daughters, 6 & 5 years old.

Eighteen years ago I had a business outing from Brunei to Bali. It is on that trip that I fell in love with the island, it’s beauty of people and nature.

A few years later, when I was already living in Hong Kong, I rented long term a house in Sanur which up to today is our “second home” in Asia. I enjoyed the house for many years as a single man and later I had many trips there with Maria.
When our kids were born (15 months apart) we had less time to travel. Also at that time I had started my own business and this was growing and that occupied large amounts of my time. This all made that we did not use the Bali House as much as before.
We rented it out to friends and “friends of friends” and the feedback we received from all these friend guests at the house was always amazing and we felt that we should share the house with more people now we could not use it as much.

This all coincided with AIRBNB becoming bigger and well known in the world. I loved the platform approach because of the “honesty based system”. Our house is decorated as our home with “good stuff” and our taste so we always wanted to make sure we had good and appreciative guests at the house.
This was the start of now many years of hosting on Airbnb! (Since 2011)
