About this listing
The villa has recently undergone major renovations. New kitchen,dining,bathroom and pool has been added. Enjoy our colourful tropical garden. This is one of the best located villas in Sanur for the price. Walk to beach,restaurants and shops.
Entry to Rumah Gembira is through a Balinese door opening out onto an inviting private pool and a lush garden beyond. There is an outdoor dining area and kitchen equipped with crockery,cutlery, frypan and saucepans. However, with the many eating places now offering take away or home deliveries, and the restaurant scene starting down the street you may never use it! Watch tv or dvd's from the air conditioned comfort of the king bed, or seated in our armchairs. If you prefer it, theis room is equipped with an overhead fan, plus a wall fan. The ensuite shower has hot and cold water. There is also a shower outdoors. Relax in the daytime on the sofa on the dining patio. If you wish this can be opened out as an extra bed and the mosquito net hung to protect the sleeper/s.
It's a short stroll to the beach which offers swimming, watersports, and seaside dining. Shopping starts even closer, along the restaurant strip. A taxi stand is at the end of the lane should you wish to travel further afield. Taxis, or the quirky bemos, can also be hailed along the main street. Parking is available within the compound through prior arrangement.
Interaction with Guests
As Rumah Gembira is in the family compound, there is always someone readily available to answer your questions and assist with making your stay an enjoyable one.
We are on the eastern side of the island in an area with a much slower pace than Kuta or Legian, and not as crowded. Sanur village actively promotes its own festivals and customs. Tourists are welcomed with wide smiles. Most shops and markets are still owned and operated by Balinese, unlike many other tourist areas. There is a long "boardwalk" at the beach which is shaded in the afternoon. It is popular with joggers in the morning and cyclists. Along this path there are many restaurants and coffee shops. A great place to stop and enjoy the refreshing sea breeze and a cool drink while watching the fishermen, the children playing on the beach and the tourists trying out the various water sports. Head north to the beach markets, or stop under the trees for a massage or manicure.
Bicycle hire is cheap and fun. Motorbikes and scooters are also available. Taxis are plentiful and cruise up and down Jalan Danau Tamblingan as well as waiting at a nearby corner. Or you can wave down one of the little green bemos for very little payment. Comfortable air conditioned vans are available for longer trips. Choose one at the roadside and negotiate your rates or check our suggestions in the House Manual.
Other Things to Note

We loved staying at Rumah gembira. The private courtyard is set up beautifully with a daybed and table and chairs that you are eat your breakfast after preparing it in the outdoor kitchen. You can also see courtyard from bed which is lovely. Only 5 min walk to beach and restaurants. Cleaned every second day. Loved it!!! Little bit noisy with cars and motorbikes driving past. We liked the space and privacy and price!!
The place was perfect, comfortable and clean. We had a great time in Sanur!
This property is the perfect location. Very close to the restaurants and shops of Sanur, while off the main road enough to remain peaceful and quiet. The hosts were so helpful and the communication was great. We extended another night because we loved the property and the location. Having a great property allowed us to really enjoy our time in Sanur. Thank you for sharing your place with us.
This place was quite beautiful and comfortable. It was located in a quiet residential section of Sanur but within walking distance to the main road and the beach. I was met at the airport by a driver who also showed me the place and left me the keys. I felt very relaxed at this place. Everything worked well - the air conditioning, the fans, the hot water, the stove, the refridgerator. The bed was very comfortable. The garden was lovely.
Perfect apartment in Sanur, only 2min away from one of the main shopping and restaurant road. Warm welcome and quiet zone. I would definitely recommend to everyone this apartment.
We really liked the Ida Aya Agung's place, we were greeted by the maid and got all the information we needed. The house was wonderful and we had a great time. The outside kitchen was very handy and equipped with everything you need to cook dinner.
Quick response to our last-minute request to book, friendly caretakers. Lovely, spacious room with outdoor kitchen, very private and secure. Just off the main road, and very close to restaurants etc. Great area. Thank you!
