Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Experience this secluded and isolated three bedroom rice field/beach house part of a small hamlet 5 minutes drive from the surfing and fishing village of Balian (or walk along the beach 35 mins).
Enjoy the 250 meter walk to the beach and admire the magical scenery of an earlier time on ancient Bali. On the way take time to relax on our hill garden with far reaching views of the sea rice fields and mountains. Excellent bird watching right from the deck. Body boarding is super fun here!

The space
Pondok Matekap is a new house crafted from local materials and blended into the magical surroundings with a grass roof (main living area,kitchen and terrace) and flat green roofs over the 3 bedrooms. Every piece of wood used is reclaimed. You can enjoy the 15m long swim zone of the freshwater pond filtered by the additional 20m pond containing plants and lava rock. All bedrooms are extremely well insulated, energy efficient with large openings to catch the sea breeze and can be cooled by air conditioning as required.

Where you’ll be

Selemadeg Barat, Bali, Indonesia

This is a great surfing area with waves at well known Balian and Medewi. For beginners or bodyboarders the beach that we have direct access to has powerful white water. Take care here but have fun. We live within a farming community and it is always interesting to see how the rice fields are maintained so beautifully. There are some lovely cafes and restaurants in Balian to try including Pondok Pitaya which also has a pool on the beach. 20 minutes walk along the beach at low tide you can access magical Mejan beach surrounded by semi circular rock cliffs. My wife and I got married in there!
