About this listing
Oceanfront Villa for 2 persons in East Bali with Million Dollar view. Located in Bayshore Villas, Candidasa. The ocean will lull you into a peaceful state of mind.
This one-bedroom Villa is compact and perfect for two people. ( A couple with a small child is fine too if the child sleeps in the same King size bed. ) It is located oceanfront next to the Infinity pool at Bayshore Villas off the main highway in Candidasa, East Bali. There is free off-road parking only a few steps from the stairs that lead up to the villa.
The first thing you see upon entering the villa is an amazing wall of glass with a panoramic ocean view. The villa interior is nicely appointed with a king size bed, a kitchen, a breakfast bar that seats two and a sectional sofa with a 40" TV that gets selected cable channels. The extra large terrace has a table, 4 chairs and a sun lounge. The open air bathroom has a large shower with a beautiful ocean view.
The terrace has a 180 degree oceanfront view as well as overlooking the infinity pool and lush resort grounds. With palm trees all around you may think you are in a tree house.
The terrace is great for sun bathing if you prefer some privacy .... or for more social interaction you can lay on a lounge by the pool. Being in a resort you may order drinks or food that is served by the pool or even in the Villa.
Villa cleaning is every other day. The monthly rate includes room cleaning with new linens two times a week.
Breakfast is not included in our reduced airbnb rental rate but is available for a very modest cost.
We do ask for a minimum rental period of 5 days. The daily rate is based on the discounted weekly rate which is considerably lower than the resort $150 daily resort rate for our villa.
The ocean and wave action is wonderful. However great beaches in East Bali are limited. You can swim in front of the villa but the sand is limited. We recommend wearing reef walkers. If you walk about 100m down the beach to the right there is some nice sandy areas. That is not to say there are not some excellent beaches scattered along the coast, because there are. Our favourite is "White Sand Beach" which is 20 minutes away by car or boat from the villa and it is amazing. We like to have a boat pick us in front of the villa and drop us for a couple hours for some swimming and snorkelling & then return us back to Bayshore Villas. This can be arranged through the resort. Guests in Bayshore Villas have access to the Infinity pool or the larger pool by the restaurant. Towels are available at the pool at no charge. There is a Spa on the resort grounds that offers massages and other services at reasonable fees. The resort has a laundry service and there are other laundry services a short walk from the villa.
Bayshore Villas also has free WiFi in the Villas and throughout the resort.
Interaction with guests
Our small villa at Bayshore Villas is very private in that it is on the second floor. You can relax on your own oceanfront terrace feeling like you are in a secluded beachfront home.... or you can go downstairs and socialize with other guests around the pools or in the restaurant. Our villa also makes a perfect honeymoon suite.
Candidasa is a rural village directly on the ocean in East Bali. When I say rural this means there are farms with rice and other crops. Also you will find a selection of farm animals like occasional chickens, pigs or cows in the area. Sometimes if the wind picks up you might temporarily catch a little bit of rural farming related smells........if this should happen during your stay simply keep the bathroom and front door closed and you should be good. The town has many fine restaurants and a limited selection of shops. It is a small village with a relaxed atmosphere. It is definitely not a place for night life, however it does have a few restaurants with Balinese dancing or live Jazz or Rock music. The villa is set a ways off the main highway in Candidasa and thus enjoys almost no traffic noise. Being oceanfront the roar of the surf is pretty much all you will hear.
The centre of Candidasa is about a 10-15 min walk from the villa. Bayshore Villas does have a front desk where they can arrange transport to town or for all day tours at reasonable rates. Should you be more adventurous you can rent a motorcycle very cheaply in town or they will delivery it to your villa.
Other things to note
Our unit is within Bayshore Villas. Airport pick-up and drop-off can be arranged ahead of time at a reasonable rate ( 35-40 USD each way ) through Bayshore Villas. We would recommend this as sometimes you can get over charged by airport taxis. Bayshore has a front desk check-in where upon arrival you will need to show your passport and pick up your keys. They will show you to the villa.
The Bayshore staff tries to make sure everything in the villa is in 100% working condition, but as anyone with a home knows occasionally things do malfunction. Should anything in the villa malfunction or need attention during your stay don't get stressed about it ..... please contact the front desk for assistance. If there is anything else we can do to make your stay more enjoyable please ask the front desk for their help. We are in a rural area of Bali so occasionally we have an interruption of electrical, cable TV or Wifi service. If it does go off it is usually for a very short time. We also have no control over the weather, farm animals or other villa guests.
Bali living is pretty much open living style with windows or doors open most the time. Our villa has an open-air bathroom and you will likely be keeping the glass sliding doors towards the ocean open a lot - thus you will get occasional geckos ( small insect eating lizards that hang out near the lights to eat bugs)in the villa, but don't worry they are afraid of humans and won't bite you. Actually in Asia they are considered good luck to have them around. Also occasional bugs and ants will make an appearance and if they bother you there should be a can of bug spray under the kitchen sink. If there is none left please ask the staff for some bug spray.
The shower is located very close to the solar water heater and sometimes it helps to run both shower heads to find a nice balance for hot & cold water.
If you desire to reduce the amount of breeze through the villa we suggest you close the bathroom & entrance doors. We usually close them after about 7pm and keep the doors towards the ocean open until bedtime.
During most of the year we find we only use the air conditioner in the bedroom at night. However there is also an A/C in the living area if you get a really steamy day. With high ceilings you need to close the doors and windows in order for the A/C to function properly.
There are sun shades on the terrace that roll down and curtains inside the villa to cut the afternoon sun's heat. A must if you want the villa cool between about 2pm -5pm !
The resort staff can arrange boat trips and sightseeing tours for you.
At the end of your visit all you need to do is turn in your keys at the front desk and settle up for any charges for additional services or meals you requested during your visit.
******* WiFi is named OceansuiteWiFi, password is "lovelystay". You can access the Bayshore WiFi also, ask at the front desk for their current password.
******* Please note that this unit is very close to the ocean and it is a very open air villa. Thus it gets a lot of salty air going through. In order to be able to offer a discounted rate we offer the villa on a weekly rate with cleanings every other day. It can be a challenge for the staff to keep it completely clean sometimes.
**** This is the perfect villa to get away from the rat race for a while, write a book or have a long honeymoon. If you are looking for an oceanfront villa for longer than 2 months contact us for a special rate.
House rules are simple. Our villa is a NON SMOKING home and we ask that you respect that. ( Smoking on the terrace does not work, the smoke goes right into the villa ) The villa is on the small side so we only allow an occupancy of TWO persons. One small child is OK upon approval if they sleep with the parents bed or have their own travel bed. We do NOT allow pets or parties in the villa.
** Please understand that the resort is located in a rural area of Bali away from the big city and sometimes when heavy rains or winds occur we occasionally experience loss of electricity or Internet service for short periods of time.
Cancel up to 7 days before your trip and get a 50% refund plus service fees back.
My husband John and I live in Thailand and we love to travel to see new places. We often go to beautiful Bali to enjoy the ocean. I am addicted to Yoga and love to meet with friends for traditional spicy Thai papaya salad.
