Our fully self contained beach pad is the perfect getaway for those who want a home away from home. Set in a compound, it is a safe and friendly environment. Only steps away to a white sandy beach with restaurants and shops on your doorstep
We're sitting here, showing our friend who we actually met in Candidasa our listing on Air bnb, and she said "Candidasa is just MAGIC! until you come here you can't understand. It's just a great place to be and you feel so at home".
The ocean as your back yard, our place is like nothing else you will find in Candidasa as you can see by the photos. There are plenty of expensive Villa's or one room bungalows but nothing in between and nothing as original as our (website hidden) has a really friendly community feel and is nestled in amongst other homes owned by westerners and local Balinese. It is very safe and child friendly. Candidasa is not a very big place, but has a main road full on either side with restaurants, some bars, and many shops. Across the road is Asri, the main convenience store which stocks everything: clothing, wooden carvings, food, drinks, alcohol, toiletries etc.
The water out the front of our place is clear and great for snorkelling and you can easily hire a fishing boat from Agus (our housekeeper Komang has details) which can take you on a tour around the islands for snorkelling and fishing. Padang Bai, is 15 minutes away where you can catch a fast boat to the Gilli Islands which are a must see. There are many scuba dive shops in Candidasa to take your pick from. We even have a pizza delivery service!!
If you want to do some sight seeing we have a wonderful driver Made, who speaks very good English and is a great tour guide for Bali and Lombok. I would recommend him to collect you from the airport (or wherever you are). Downstairs is kitchen, living and bathroom with hot water in both kitchen and bathroom. Kitchen is well stocked and a great space to create in. Komang our house keeper and your host, can help you with car and bike rental, booking a massage, information about the area and any other help you may need. She can also for a fee organise breakfast/dinner, fresh prawns and fish, fruit and any laundry requirements. The downstairs lounge converts into either 2 single beds or 1 Queen size. Lounge on top balcony also coverts.
Interaction with Guests
We will not be present however Komang who speaks wonderful English will be your host and there to greet you when you arrive.
If you like yoga then the Gedong Gandhi Ashram is just down the road and has daily outdoor classes in a bale right by the ocean. Such a beautiful place. They also have really great acupuncturists available in their clinic. White Sand Beach is also a must see and only 15 minutes away. Surfers can head to Jasri and also Candidasa Main beach. The best local food is at Warung No 5 which is opposite the Palms. It is super great. Best steak is at Amerta at Anom Beach, 7 minutes driving. Asri has best priced bottles of imported spirits.
Consideration and respect. Because the house is mainly bamboo, wood and has a grass roof, we would prefer for safety reasons that you smoke outside.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Kam's place from March 16 - 20 2015.
It was our first stop in Bali and we could not have wished for a better start. Kam picked us up from the airport and was very nice and helpful all the time. We got a lot of information and insights into Bali living from an expat perspective which was great! Later in our stay we met Harper as well and the two are a lovely couple, very friendly and caring.
The house itself is exactly as you see on the pictures. We liked the simple but stylish vibe of the bamboo structure and the green surroundings a lot. The balcony on the first floor is especially nice to sit in the shadow and relax during the hot hours.
It is situated in a private area and although only a few steps of the main road, we always felt secure there.
On site, Komang is the house keeper and her sister in law is coming over to clean daily. All the balinese people living in the neighborhood were very friendly to us and Komang was always around to answer our questions and give us information.
As usual in Bali, the locals keep chickens and dogs. At night, they can be pretty noisy, so pack a pair of earplugs if you want to make sure to sleep through. This is nothing that Kam is responsible for though, if you want absolute silence at night in Bali, you better go somewhere NO ONE is actually living!
All in all, this is definitely a place we would stay again if we get back to the island!
Kam and Harper were excellent hosts and made us feel welcome. The house is comfortable and unique. Having Komagh come every day to clean was such a luxury! Candi Dasa is a busy town... but we found quiet walks off the main road.
The Beach house is in a great location, in a beautiful part of Bali! It was just off the beach & close to shops; close to a supermarket that sells honey & to Cafe's!! We particularly enjoyed Cafe Wayan with it's free & reliable WiFi!!
There is a resident cat 'Bali' which we weren't aware off, but he's very friendly despite his harsh sounding meow!
The house keeper was very helpful with anything that we needed & we were able to hire the scooters from that location.
Kam & Harper went out of their way to get a smal bag back to us that we had left there & we were very appreciative of that!!
Nous avons bien aimé notre séjour à la Bali Bamboo Beach house. La maison est superbe, toute faite de matériau naturel, et bien décoré. Nous avons aussi apprécié les services des deux Komang. L'une aidant avec la vie de tous les jours (booking, achats, location de scooties, etc.) et l'autre nettoyant gentillement et discrètement la maison.
Kam fut aussi une aide précieuse pour découvrir les places les plus charmantes (et utiles) des alentours.
La proximité des services (épiceries, restaurants, agences de voyage, etc.) fut aussi très appréciée.
Merce de nous avoir accueillis aussi gentillement!
Thank you to Melanie and her beautiful family for staying with us in Candi. We very much enjoyed meeting you all and are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Lovely to communicate with and kind and thoughtful people. We wish them all the very best for their future travels together and much happiness in life.
The villa was super beautiful. The stuffs are nice and friendly. This experience was great except of we did not have hot water in the first night. and the second night when we came back after dinner. We got hundreds of insects on our bed.... Yeah maybe that is naturally Bali. But still we got shocked. TOT..
We are happy that Uri loved the Villa. Yes, this is the tropics and there are a multitude of flying critters!! A tip for when you go out at night is to leave your inside lights off as the insects are attracted to the light. Leave outside lights on and you should have no problem. We wish you and your family happiness and thank you for your feedback.
Kam & Harper were very communicative. They came to meet me on arrival but we weren't around, but gave me a call to make sure everything was good. The room is great with a beach feel you don't get much places else. Good food, shopping, convenience stores, laundry all near by. The cleaning service was great, and we were able to go visit around with ease.
Obviously if you book this place you understand there's no wifi, however we ate at the temple cafe nearby (3 min walk on main road) and they had good internet (and yummy food)
