About this listing
BUDDHA ROOM: A cozy, air-conditioned bedroom for two with thick, plush king-sized mattress and crisp linen. En suite bathroom with hot shower. Wake up to a lovely garden and pool view. Three minutes drive to Echo Beach. Free Wi-Fi, Parking, Coffee.
The warm and cozy Villa Tianjiao can be let by the room. We have two guest rooms available that can accommodate two people each, for a total of 4 guests. Each room has an independent access with doors being composed by inner sliding door and metal gate door to guarantee privacy and safety. My girlfriend and I live permanently at the villa and we love to make our guests feel like they're properly looked after. We are available at all times for help and guidance.
The villa is located at the end of a 50 meters alley and no construction has been built in the immediate proximity. The area is totally quiet and silent, especially at night. Right in front of the villa, the villa enjoys a beautiful view of rice fields and lush nature. Nevertheless the villa is located very close to the world's famous Echo Beach. Driving a scooter bike down to the beach takes approximately 3 minutes.
The villa is provided with a fairly large swimming pool, big enough for me to teach the basics of surfing to friends and guests. The swimming pool size is 3 x 6 meters. The swimming pool rim is covered by lava rock tiles that tastefully blend into the garden surround and, on two sides the swimming pool is fronted by a wet edge. A wooden sundeck reaches back from the poolside towards the open-air kitchen. Two sun beds with parasol and beach towels are at guests disposal on the sundeck.
Around the swimming pool the villa enjoys a very green tropical garden, with a large variety of trees and plants, that together with the lawn, make the garden look like a natural amphitheatre. Patterned pathways, throughout the landscaped grounds, lead to the main buildings of the property.
The built up area is composed by 3 main constructions: the house where the owners live, a second building where the 2 guest rooms are situated, and another open-air building with kitchen and living room. The kitchen is fully equipped (fridge, water dispenser, toaster, kettler, plates, cutlery, glasses, cups, etc.) and the living room is provided with a sofa, a large table, cable TV (Indovision) and a DVD player. Facilities include a guest bathroom next to the living area and an open-air shower that's really useful to rinse the swimming pool water off your body after a swim. Guests are more than welcome to use the shared facilities.
Please mind there is no permanent staff working at the villa. No breakfast is included in the rental price. Guests are expected to behave in a decent and respectful way.
The two master suites are enclosed in a private structure at the edge of the property.
The interior of the suites has been designed in Balinese minimalist style with white wash wooden furniture. The rooms are dominated by a large king size bed (190x200cm) that is headed by a rich set of white and golden pillows and bolsters. In keeping with the overall style of the villa, the ensuite bathroom feature a Balinese style with white wash furniture as well. Bathrooms are provided with stepping stone showers separated by the rest of the bathroom by a small wall.
The villa offers free daily cleaning (from 10am to 12am), set of towels, soap and fresh lines / bed sheets change when requested.

We had a wonderful stay at the villa, everything looks exactly as per the pictures. Everything was very clean and it was certainly nice to have a private pool. I would definitely recommend scooter hire to get around canggu, the streets aren't as busy as in Seminyak so we felt safe. There are so many amazing cafes and bars within easy reach. Canggu is definitely the up and coming area and a nice change from the busy Seminyak!
We stayed ten days in the villa enjoying the island and facilities. Clean rooms, nice swimming pool and garden. The house keeper is really nice and helpful.
The villa is near of Echo beach and good places to visit such as shopping, yoga center, restaurants, beaches... beautiful area and relaxing views! We will come back soon! :-)
Villa Tianjiao was exactly as described, tucked in a quiet pocket but still walking distance to Echo Beach and Old Mans. It was a lovely place (and very clean!), we had a nice time relaxing by the pool, and Walter was a wonderful host. Extremely caring and helpful, we encountered a few personal issues and he went out of his way to assist us in resolving them. Thanks Walter so much for your hospitality! Look forward to staying with you again.

Our stay at Villa Tianjiao was fantastic! The staff was very helpful and accommodating when he wasn't around and Walter himself is extremely friendly. With out a doubt, we'd stay with Walter again!
The villa is everything you see in the photos. Super clean and relaxing. The hosts are awesome as well as the house keeper who will attend to all of your needs with a quickness. I only booked about a week but after staying a few days I knew this was a prime spot and decided to book for a whole month. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway - your mind, body, and soul will melt into cozyness at this villa. Thanks guys!
Walter was a very attentive host. Always making sure our stay, albeit short, was as comfortable as possible. He was helpful and was communicative. The villa was clean and had the necessities. The pool was beautiful!
We stayed three nights at Walter's House. Walter's place is a lovely and really modern Villa. The pool is clean and luxurious and the rooms are equally georgeous. Venny, the housemaid was really helpful wenn she talked to our driver to give him directions, arranged a scooter or called a cab when we left. The Canggu area is really nice and far away from the Kuta hustle. Echo Beach is just 5 minutes by scooter. Walter was a nice host, who gave us very clear instructions on how to get to the place. I would highly recommend to stay at his place, if you're looking for a very calm and neat place. Perfect for married couples.

About the Host, Walter
I am Walter, 38yo, I was born and raised in Italy but I have been living abroad since I was 25. Since then, I lived in Germany, Ireland, Portugal, United States, Thailand and now Bali, Indonesia. As you see, I love traveling... and like most Italians, I like good food & football :-)
Bali is a great place to stay both as a tourist and for a living. I have been living here for about 3 years. This year I have rented a beautiful villa in one of the hottest places on the island. My villa is located in Canggu, north of Kuta, 2 minutes drive to the world famous Echo Beach. Echo Beach hosts some of the best surf in Bali and a wide variety of local and western restaurants. Canggu is a charming rural area immersed in beautiful rice fields, only 20 minutes drive far from Seminiyak, the glamorous shopping and entertainment area of Bali.
I also own a property in the Algarve, the southern province of Portugal, that I rent out during the summer season.
As for me, I am easy going, I like to get to know new people and I love the idea of having guests from all over the world. I am social, friendly and considerate. I like my home to be neat and clean at all times. Most of all, I respect people's privacy and I know that some people just want to relax their holiday in peace. If you are this type of guy, you don't have anything to worry about.
One of my lifelong passions is surfing and that's how I spend my spare time in Bali. If you are a surfer too (or fancy to learn how to surf) we can go for a paddle together!
My job is web development and do internet marketing consulting. But I wouldn't get into details.. that's boring, right? :-) My favorite book is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and some of my favorite movies are Fight Club, The Wolf of Wall Street, Django, Matrix, ... (this list can go on forever..).
Well, that's all for now.
Drop me a line if you'd like to stay at my villa in Bali!
