About This Listing
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, import swimwear, wooden carvings, food, drinks, alcohol, toiletries etc.
The water out the front of our place is clear and great for snorkelling. Padang Bai, is 15 minutes away where you can snorkel at Blue Lagoon and also where you 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!!
We have a fantastic transport and touring company that can fulfil all your needs. If you want to do some sight seeing, go for day tours, hire a car or motorbike, have a day trip snorkelling or fishing or book a fast boat to the Gilli's. Their office is located just out the front of our place so it is very handy.We always recommend that you use our drivers to bring you to our place as they know exactly where it is and can introduce you to Komang who will look after you during your stay. We can organise that for you when you book and help you in any way we can.
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 can help you with booking a massage, information about the area and any other help you may need. She just lives around the corner so is very handy to find when you need her.
The downstairs lounge converts into either 2 single beds or 1 Queen size. Lounge on top balcony also coverts in to one queen.
As you know, we don't have air con, but we do have overhead and pedestal fans both up and downstairs. It is a very well ventilated home and we find it most comfortable as there is usually a lovely sea breeze to cool things down.
For an afternoon of Europe style fun go to Potato Head in Semiyak. Also good is Ku De Ta, Merah Putih, Biku (great café that does High Tea). Oh so many places and so little time!!!! I could write for days!
So, most importantly, if you chose to visit with us, enjoy your stay and have the most wonderful holiday experience ever in 'Rumah Rukun' (which means House of Harmony in Balinese) your Bali home away from home.
Please help yourselves to our vast collection of DVD'S. They are there for you to enjoy. Also tea, coffee, sugar etc.
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. you just pay a 50,000Rp donation. Such a beautiful place. They also have really great acupuncturists available in their clinic. White Sand Beach at Jasri is also a must see and only 15 minutes away. Surfers can head to Jasri and also Candidasa Main beach.
Our favourite place to eat in Candidasa is called Warung De Lima, which is opposite the Palms right at the beginning of Candidasa. It is super great. The food is always fresh and FANTASTIC! Tip, always ask for no MSG when ordering food. The Balinese love to put it in their food and as we know it is not good for you! Vincents is a beautiful restaurant. Perfect place to go for a special night out plus they have live Jazz. Just check out dates.
Lezat is a great place to have breakfast. Right on the ocean. Great service, lovely staff and good food and coffee.
As we mentioned, we can help you with all your travel needs. We have a wonderful transport company that we always use for all our guests. We can communicate about that more when you have made your reservation.
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.
The only thing Kam and Harper couldn't help with was to extend our vacation in this peaceful harbor on the Paradise Island (they'd have to convince my boss to allow this, which is practically impossible). Apart from that our staying was impeccable, we got everything that was promised and even more - we felt ourselves at home, invited to a friend's house, and we will definitely come back again and again.
Thanks to both Kam and Harp for this exceptional Bali experience as well as for personal and friendly attitude
Give us your bosses number and we're on it!!! What are friends for! Such a joy to meet you and your family and we are so grateful. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, you have impeccable taste! We wish you much happiness until we see you again. It was our pleasure to be there for you and your beautiful family. See you again.
Kam was great. He picked us up from the airport and drove us out to the place.
We really liked the place and would recommended it people traveling.
A couple of points for people coming to stay at the Bamboo beach hut. It is about 1:30 to 2hrs from the Airport/Depensar because traffic is pretty slow in Bali.
The area is not over touristy which is nice however it means you will have to hire a driver if you want to go do a tour or head to a different beach etc. Kam recommended a great company that has legitimate drivers with good cars and insurance etc. The cost for a driver was 650K ($65 AUD) a day.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Kam's place from March (phone number hidden).
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.
