The second bedroom is separate from the main house so gives the option of total privacy.
The house is tastefully constructed and decorated with a combination of antiques and contemporary pieces making it charming and comfortable. The large house is a traditional Indonesian "lumbung" house which has been renovated to make it comfortable and functional. It has wooden floors and windows all around making it light and airy with fans in the living area to assist air flow.
The house is serviced and cleaned daily except Sundays and the staff on the next door property can organize laundry for guests for any extra fee being the charges of the local laundry.
There is no breakfast provided as such but there is a full kitchen and when you arrive there will be all the things you need to make your breakfast on the first day to save you having to go shopping immediately. We provide filtered drinking water using an imported reverse osmosis filter.
The property is situated approximately 8 minutes drive to the beach and the central tourist area of Seminyak and has easy access to all of the arterial roads.The beauty is to come back after a big day out and have a space away from the business of Seminyak where you can relax and put your feet up.
There is a main road walking distance for taxis though it is advisable to hire a car or motor bike whilst in Bali as there is no public transport however we do have a taxi in the village who is mostly available. The house has its own car park and entrance.
The guest house suits people wishing to have a quiet experience and does not cater for those wishing to have a party holiday.
If you need car or bike rental, in house massage or other services I would be more than happy to help organize that for you or point you in the right direction.
This is not a commercial property and for private and ocassional rental only. it does not have insurance so it is the responsibility for guests to cover themselves with insurance.
Your stay will be private and comfortable in your own home away from home with help if you need it.
This is a fully separate house .
Interaction with Guests
If I am in Bali I will be happy to meet and chat and give you pointers. If I am not in Bali the house staff will be able to help you and I will be contactable by email or phone.
I love this neighbor hood as it is just on the edge of the action without being in the middle of it. When you return after a big day out you can enjoy being away from the madness and business of the central tourist area yet in less than10 minutes you are in the middle of it all if you want.
It is advisable to have a car or bike to drive during your stay.
Other Things to Note
This is a private house not a commercial rental.
Since this house is adjacent to my compound I do not want party people in the house or people who wish to have parties.People disturbing neighbors will be asked to leave with no offer of refund. I expect my guests to be respectful of neighbors and locals and their customs.
It is a beautiful area and you will feel at home and relaxed with everything you need.
Myself and my girlfriend stayed with Saras for one month between late August and September.
The property itself is incredibly beautiful, the house is airy, relaxing and wonderfully cool. Just what is needed after a day of exploring the crazy surrounding areas of Seminyak and Kuta.
Both members of staff were absolutely superb; our bed linens were changed more than enough and we were always kept with clean towels and a nice tidy environment to return to.
I would definitely agree with Saras' advice that if you intend to stay here, you'll need your own transportation. The villa proved out of the way at times and getting a taxi could sometimes be problematic. Seminyak was at least a thirty minute walk, so taxis are unavoidable without own transport. Although the local drivers (read: not taxis) were second to none if you want to book a daytrip, like we did.
The only other issue we had was with the internet. We were under the impression we would be able to use this for everyday use and were told upon arrival it was only suitable to emails. Still, Saras was brilliant in sorting this out for us.
Overall, I would strongly recommend staying here if you want something relaxed and away from the chaos that the more tourist-centric areas afford. Just do so after you have arranged ample transport and you will not regret it.
Many thanks to Saras and Made for sure an unforgettable time in Bali.
Warm welcome by Sara, house is really nice, been there with my family (2 kids) for 10 days, everything clean and everything works. Neigbourhood is medium, you need to have a car or motorbike/scooter to visit beach and highlights, and you need to explain taxidriver realy well to find the house (sara has a good explanation on paper).
Ethearial. The loveliest place. Saras' beautiful home is an oasis. Close to all the action yet hidden - a true retreat. Stay here and feel completely at peace in a beautiful space moments from everything you could need. Saras is the most amiable host and the staff are lovely. I couldn't have enjoyed my time here more. A beautiful Bali experience!

As a traveller I can appreciate what travellers need. At the end of a day moving around I like to go back to where I am staying and kick back and relax.
My place is a place to relax after your adventures to re group or just chill out.
