Interaction with Guests
Hosts may be on site in another house on the property, but your privacy is respected and during your stay we will not often be using the pool. Our family is away from early morning until sunset.
We are available to you for local knowledge and recommendations. We are always happy to make your stay more enjoyable and can also assist with communication in Indonesian with staff, drivers, etc.
A 3-minute scooter ride to all the best eateries of Batu Bolong and Echo Beach, and to all the great Canggu surf breaks. You'll feel like you're in Bali, not in a tourist trap. We're within reach of plenty of great places to eat and things to do and see, but nestled quietly behind a Balinese village and just above a beautiful temple next to the river. It is serene.
The easiest way to get around the area is by scooter. You can rent these for about $5/day. You can also walk to get to the beach or to nearby restaurants, but most are about 1km away. If you need a car and driver, we can assist with making arrangements.
Absolutely no smoking anywhere on the property.
Must be respectful and kind toward staff. Please respect the environment and our electricity bill by turning off the A/C when you are not in the rooms.
We had an amazing time! Definitely one of the best family trips! Tim and his family were amazing hosts! From day one Tim made sure that we had everything that we needed... A driver to take us around bali, airport pick up/drop off, scooters, bikes, running trails, recommendations for where to eat, where to surf.. and it goes on and on.
The house is fantastic and the pool is perfect for families (there is a shallow part for kids to play in).
The house is a short bike ride (or even shorter scooter ride) from the beach, restaurants and store. It was a bit far for my 3 year old to walk but he never wanted to leave the house!
Would definitely recommend staying here!
Tim's house is beyond amazing! A beautiful home that made our holiday very special. The house is in a great location perfectly placed closed enough to the beach and a short ride to some great restaurants. The house has a awesome pool which is perfect for family's with kids and the biggest lounge/daybed ever. Can highly recommend this amazing house it really is one of a kind.!
Tim was very welcoming, he was extremely helpful in the detail he provided before our stay and even helped me with a running route in the local area despite him being an extremely busy teacher. The house was gorgeous the beds were comfortable and the showers were lovely our only regret was not spending more time at the house but we were out exploring most days and evenings. Thank you Tim for a wonderful stay and for being so hospitable.
Tim's house is beautiful and it was a unique experience staying in a house made of teak. The children, 2 and 4, loved going up and down stairs cos we don't have that in our own home. And they loved django the dog.
Tim and his family stayed on site in another guest house and was very accommodating, always asking if we needed help without intruding.
The house was a little bit far off from main eating areas though for walking, especially with kids. But Tim has scooters if you feel adventurous. It was a great place to relax and enjoy the breeze which was fairly constant. Try the hammock!
Thanks for the kind comments, Cherylyn. Funny, I always worry about the stairs for families with young children, so it's interesting you describe them as a 'feature' that your wee ones enjoyed. Nice! We were happy to have your family with us and appreciated your positive attitude despite my son mixing up 'left and right' on his map sending you on a long and circuitous walk to the beach - ouch! I hope your father is feeling better, and we also hope to see you back again at some point in the future.
Our stay in Canggu with Tim, his family and staff was amazeballs! Tim was an amazing host, Solis and everyone else read our wishes from our lips and we felt at home. Although there was a tiny problem with the water, everything was fixed within a few minutes, so no problem there at all. We would definitely come back to Bali, just to stay in this wonderful house and to have a nice time with Django and everyone else.
Thanks for everything!!!
We were a group of five adults and two 5-6 year old kids and stayed in Tim's house for two weeks.
The property is located in a very quiet and idyllic part of Canggu. We used scooters to get around. The beach, shops and restaurants are all between 5-10 min rides away. One small, but very good and reasonably priced restaurant in walking distance.
The house itself is an absolute dream, traditional wooden architecture is combined with modern design elements such as an open plan layout and large windows with magnificent views. The pool includes a shallow area for children, but is also suitable for proper lap swimming.
Tim, his family and staff were great! We always felt very welcome, almost like an extended part of the family:). They not only helped us a lot to organise transport and tours, but also gave us very good advice regarding restaurants and special things to do in the area. They even helped us to organise a kids birthday party!
We can not recommend Tim's place highly enough, just go there and experience it for yourself!
Thanks so much for the generous review, Christoph. I really enjoyed getting to know your family and friends - all wonderful, appreciative, good-natured folks. Hoping your transition back to Germany has gone well and looking forward to seeing you back in Bali for your next vacation!
Am reluctant to write this as am tempted to keep this little slice of paradise a secret. We had one week staying in 'the wood house'. The house itself is a work of art with beautiful handcrafted furniture. Amazing swimming pool, beautiful gardens and helpful, kind staff. We had a lovely dog and cat to keep us company (which came with the house). There are scooters and bikes available and reliable local drivers close by. Tim was incredibly helpful and even though he was not in the country, he was available to answer any questions or queries. Amazing, amazing, gorgeous, house. The name doesn't do it justice. Look no further..... This is the one.
