Private villa for rent in central Lovina with private swimming pool and more than 1000 m2 garden.
Lovina (short for Love Indonesia) is a coastal area on the North-western part of Bali, and here we have chosen to build our villa, Villa Juliani. The villa is situated in the village of Kalibukbuk in Central Lovina.
The villa is built on top of a small hill with a gorgeous panorama view of the mountains and with only a 5-10 minutes walk to the beach, stores and restaurants.
Lovina is one of pearls of Bali still unspoiled by mass tourism. A stay at Villa Juliani is a unique opportunity to experience the "real" Bali.
Om Swasti Astu!
The villa is situated on top of a hill, and the garden is divided into terraces, which is why the villa is also called “Teras Juliani”.
The terraces have also been used for the villa, thus being formed with a split-level. Thus, the villa is built with a two-storey main building and a one-storey part (the split-level).
The ground floor contains a large living room and dining room with its own front terrace as well as an office. The first floor contains the master bedroom (more than 30 metres square) with teakwood floor and a balcony facing west, from which there is an unspoiled view towards the mountains. From here you will for instance be able to see the fantastic sunset.
The split-level contains two bedrooms with their own terrace facing east.
The ground floor also contains a bathroom with shower. The first floor contains a large bathroom with both bathtub and shower
The garden is built with sharp cut terraces with large green areas as well as a large swimming pool and connected sundeck – again with an unspoiled view towards the mountain. The swimming pool has a sunken bar, where you can sit in the shadow and enjoy freshly made juice or another drink of your choice. The garden also has a “bale bengong” or “sakepat” (a sort of gazebo) on the top terrace overviewing the swimming pool and the sundeck.
The villa is secluded from the main road. Therefore, there is no motor noise, and usually only Gamelan orchestras, dogs, hens and other typical Balinese village sounds are heard.
The caretakers, Made and Kadek, live in a small house on the north-east corner of the ground. They will help you in any way necessary for you to have a memorable stay.
Interaction with Guests
The caretakers are available all day around.
A beautiful, charming and charismatic villa in the center of kalibukbuk, very close to the Beach, restaurants and shops. Our welcome was perfect with a warm indonesian family waiting for us with drinks, and ready to help throughout our entité stay. Breakfast was delicious prepared by the indonesian Mother. I would definitely reccomend staying here, our expérience was amazing! Thank you Made!
My partner, my four year old son and I spent three night's at Made's house. The house is beautifully situated in a calm neighborhood and offers a lot of amenities - the pool is great and invites for relaxing hours, the garden is generous and beautiful and the house is spacious. The family on site (caretakers) helped us to organize a motorbike and to get all necessary information.
During our stay there were some issues. But Made and Steven reacted very quickly by email and left no stone unturned to fix the issues with the caretakers on site. We felt well hosted and were pleased by their help.
Altogether it was a good experience and we enjoyed our time.
Overall the villa is a really nice place. Nice surrounding and interior deco, big pool, comfortable beds, and Made was kind to allow 8 of us to stay at her place and provided extra mattresses. Kadek the caretaker kept the house really nice and clean and was very helpful.
Unfortunately we arrived at a wrong timing and was faced with water pressure issues (villa is situated on a hill and pressure drops during high water consumption period by the surrounding houses. Pressure returns after the peak period.) and power rationing was imposed by the electric company until about 9pm at night. Made was quick to respond to the problems eventhough she was not on site and offered compensation to make up for the shortfall (which was out of her control) eventhough she was not obliged to. For this we are grateful for her kind offer.
The place would be a full 5 stars if not for the unfortunate incident we faced. Overall I would recommend this place again.
Villa juliani is a really nice villa, where we can relax and enjoy a beautiful swimming pool.
People are helpful, and can advice nice restaurant around the area.
We had a very good time at Villa Juliani. The villa is spacious with three great bedrooms and a nice pool. The owner, Made Juliani, was very kind to us, she had to risk a negative review to safe our booking. The beach and the touristic part of Kalibukbuk are within walkable distance, but renting bike or motorbike is adviced. Recommended!
Thanks for the kind review. We will take a look at the showers when we are back in the villa and hopefully have them in better condition for future guests. Sorry about the misunderstanding - light breakfast should be included in the price.
Hope to see you back at the villa sometime. Enjoy the rest of your stay in Indonesia.

Dear Airbnb Community and potential guests,
We are (July 2014) new to Airbnb and are still learning about the various features.
We had a first set of guest inquiring about the availability of a given period in the villa to which we confirmed that the villa was available, after which they confirmed that they would like to rent the villa but were not in a position to finalize the booking until later the same evening. In the meantime, a second set of guests via Instant Booking booked an overlapping period. Since we had already promised the villa to the first set of guests, we felt that we needed to cancel the second booking.
We have now disabled the Instant Booking feature for our listing so that this situation should not occur again. We send our sincerest apologies to the second set of guests and hope that they have found a great alternative in Lovina.
Made and Steven
