About this listing
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)
A nice collection photos of one of the bedrooms, indoor and outdoor living rooms and poolside... (Thanks Amri Ginang!)
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.
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.
Sanur and Sanur Beach is just an amazing part of Bali. Called "Snore" sometimes by people that prefer hipper places in Bali my opinion is that Sanur is still " true Bali but with modern restaurants mixed in with local. Modern supermarkets mixed with local stores.
Very friendly people, no heckling annoying sales people, just friendly, happy and welcoming people.
Sanur Beach is beautiful, clean and has a friendly sea to swim in with a reef 2 Km out of shore which makes the water safe to swim for all ages.
Sanur Beach also has an amazing beach walkway all along the Sanur coast line. You should certainly go there with sunrise...you won't be sorry you got up early!
Many nice restaurants and places for coffee or drinks along this beach walkway as well.
Taxi's are the best...and Bluebird Taxi is our choice of "brand". Telephone number is at the house and they know our villa address for pickup when you mention telephone number. Drives short or long are welcome.
You can rent bicycles and motorbikes just close by in Sanur if you would want to.
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!
Our house rules are basically that our guests need to enjoy themselves and use the house like it is their own home.
It is decorated as our home so we like people to feel at home and therefore also treat and cherish all our stuff like furniture, electronics, etc. like they would their own.
Be sensible with sound in the tranquil and beautiful place that is Sanur, Bali!
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!
The villa was exactly what we expected it to be!!
We were made to feel very welcome by the staff. Wyann could not do enough for us during our stay. Breakfast was made, our beds attended to, our cloths washing done and the residence cleaned every day.
For the last four years we have stayed at one of the best resorts in Sanur, the Puri Santrian Club Rooms. Our preference now would be to stay at this villa. The villa is very private, you have the sense that you are in your own little world. The bedrooms and bathrooms are huge. The living space interacts very well with the pool area. There is a high quality sound system, with an excellent selection of music, that plays throughout the living and pool area adding to the atmosphere.
We would highly recommend a stay at this villa. We are already planning to return next year!!!
Wow! What a fantastic place, great location, great facilities, I really feel lucky to have been able to spend some time in Rene's home. I can't say enough good things about the experience. Thank you for sharing your lovely please with us!
Tod... I am super happy to read your comment. (And hear what our team at the house said about you and your party) Fantastic to know that you all enjoyed the house so much and had a great time! THAT is why I like to share our cozy home in Sanur... ;-)! Hope to see you back one day Tod...
This was our second time at this villa. The house staff are amazing and were a great help with our children. They put up the pool fence for safety which was great peace of mind. We accidentally left 'Lucy' my daughters comfort doll behind and they kindly found her and sent her back to Australia. It's a beautiful villa in a quiet relaxing location whilst still being close enough to easily walk to Sanur shops.
Dear Danielle... It was great to host you again! The team at the house was super happy to take care of you and your family again :-)!
We were super happy that we found "Lucy" for your daughter and managed to get them back together again! (Our daughters have their own comfort dolls so I know how important it is)
We hope to see you back at our home again in the future.
Rene was very helpful with all information leading up to our stay. We have two children aged 3 and 5 and there were great toys for them , two cute extra kids rooms with bunk beds, and a pool fence so they had a great time and we could relax. The staff were very helpful on our stay and kept the villa very clean and Wayan made lovely pancakes for the boys in the morning. W
Close to shops and the main supermarket. Would happily stay there again.
Hi Juliet, super nice to read your review and read you enjoyed. Very nice to hear that your two children enjoyed the pool so much...Our daughters are about same age and enjoy the same. The pool fence has been one of the best decisions we made...So much comfort and peace of mind comes with that fence!
We would love to you back when you next chosen holiday is up Juliet ;-)!
In april/ mei 2015 hebben wij (gezin met 4 pers.) intens genoten van een fantastische vakantie op Bali, in de geweldige Villa van René Theil. Het huis is zeer compleet, ook als het gaat om baby/kinderspullen. De twee master bedrooms zijn ruim, de twee badkamers gloednieuw en groot, de twee kinderkamers slim ingedeeld met stapelbedden en nog ruimte voor een babybed, het zwembad een feest en wij hebben ook vooral enorm genoten van de 'buiten woonkamer'. De bijbehorende staff maakt het verblijf zeer luxueus. Zij voorzagen ons in alle informatie over Sanur, de mogelijkheden in huis (koken, wassen, schoonmaken, bbq regelen, massage aan huis, babysitten, boekingen in restaurants, fietsen huren, airport transport, etc..) Veel dank voor een onvergetelijke vakantie in een geweldig huis. We komen graag nog een keer terug! Remke Keizer-Haarlem.
Het is super te lezen dat jullie zo'n fijne tijd gehad hebben in ons huis! Dank voor alle complimentjes en uiteraard ook de suggesties.
Ons team in Bali was ook helemaal happy met jullie en hebben het ook naar hun zin gehad met jullie.
Uiteraard zijn jullie altijd weer welkom als je terug wilt komen :-)!
Yes all the reviews are true. The house is fantastic it's like an oasis, warm nights, beautiful restaurants and very warm and helpful people.
Suzanne and Wyan were extremely helpful and very friendly. Rene you have a very beautiful home and we would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a relaxing break. We will definitely be back.
My wife was especially excited by Suzanne's beautiful jewellery collection a real bonus.
Once again thanks for a great holiday.

About the Host, René
My Name is René. I live over 15 years in Hong Kong. Before HK I lived three years in Brunei Darussalam. Before that I lived and worked in my home country Holland. Yes, I am indeed Dutch :-)!
I met my amazing wife Maria here in HK. She is born and raised here by her also amazing parents. We got married in May 2009. My wife gave birth to our gorgeous daughter Sasha in October 2010. We enjoy her so very much in the time we can spend with her. (Maria and I both work)
On the 25th January 2012 my wife delivered another miracle and that was our daughter Natisa. (Tissa)
I am now surrounded by three beautiful and amazing women...!
Maria and I used to travel quite a bit together and many trips to our nice little paradise in Sanur, Bali. We have a great and cosy house there and call the friends we made there our family. Bali is just amazing to experience and especially the people from Bali.
Due to running my own business in Hong Kong and arrivals of two amazing daughters 15 months apart we cannot use our Bali Home as much as we would like to.
So, we decided to share ownership of the house with good friends here in Hong Kong. Now sharing resources with Sven & Krista (Also Dutch) we were able to upgrade the house with new gorgeous bathrooms, new kids rooms and a gated pool. The house is now even homier being owned and used by two families with children.
The above is why we love to share our home with anybody that can appreciate Bali, our cosy home (Decorated for us and not for rental) and the amazing staff we have around the house making our stays, and yours if you chose so, smooth, pleasant, enjoyable and relaxed.
