About this listing
Oceanfront Villa for 2 in East Bali with Million Dollar view. Located in Bayshore Villas, Candidasa. The surf will lull you into a peaceful state of mind.
SPECIAL OFFER: Low Season booking for October or November only $499 USD per week!
This one-bedroom Villa is compact and perfect for two people. 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.
The weekly and monthly rate include room cleaning and new linens two times a week.
Breakfast is not included in our reduced airbnb rental rate but is available for a modest cost.
We do ask for a minimum rental period of 1 week which is priced at a nice discount over daily rate.
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 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 villa at Bayshore 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 chickens, pigs and cows. 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.
We try 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 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.
Our villa has an open-air bathroom 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 8pm 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.
There are sun shades on the terrace that roll down and curtains inside the villa to cut the afternoon sun's heat. A big help!
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 "Oceansuite". 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 2 cleanings. 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. We do NOT allow pets in the villa.
Our hosts were away travelling during the period of our stay, but they had done everything in advance to ensure we had a smooth stay and were well looked after.
The apartment has a 'wow' factor that was better than we could hope for. The bedroom is glass walls on two sides so you get spectacular sea views and sunsets - also from the balcony. High-quality original art and sustainable architecture enhanced our pleasure, as did the privacy offered by a first floor apartment. It truly was luxury. And the restaurant food (we ate Balinese style) is also great. Even better is no hawkers on-site and very little traffic noise.
Thanks so much John and Tai for entrusting us with this beautiful, romantic space. We highly recommend.
L'accoglienza e stata molto precisa e la disponibita dello staff e ottima.
La camera si presenta come in foto.
First time to Bali and staying at John and Tai's OceanSuite villa right on the beach in Candadisa felt like home
from the moment we arrived. Everything was just like the pictures and better as the veranda overlooking the beach and pool gave us an outdoor room to see but not be seen from. The Bayshore Villas is a well run small and quiet 33 unit resort with a very gracious staff providing food and housekeeping services to pamper you when you want to be pampered yet with the beachfront location of the OceanSuite villa just steps away from the rest of the resort it feels like a secluded vacation home. A perfect blend of location, architecture, space, amenities and value, we highly recommend it.
Thank you for the month in paradise!

If you are in any doubt about booking the Ocean suite believe me you could not choose a more fabulous location or superb apartment! You could not get any closer to the sea without getting wet, the views through the glass walls and on the balcony are amazing.
We were there just over 3 weeks in July 2015 and I was pleasantly surprised that the apartment was bigger than I expected and very well appointed, lots of storage space and a small but more than adequate kitchenette and good sized fridge freezer. While we were there it was the dry season and we saw little rain but it was quite hot and humid. Fortunately there was AC in the lounge and the bedroom which worked perfectly. There is also a nice breeze from the sea during the day which is refreshing on the balcony or by the pool downstairs. Tia and John were more than helpful as we were booking the apartment, answering our queries and questions quickly and as we later found, completely accurately. We were concerned about the price of eating out and wanted to know about cooking appliances but Tia and John assured us it was cheap to eat out and we can confirm it is very cheap compared to the UK and Europe though wine is more expensive. In the end we only ate in maybe twice as our average evening meal was only around £25.
The apartment is on a lovely complex called Bay Shore Villas and is serviced by them, (cleaning, bed change and fresh bottled water etc). There is a really good restaurant (reasonable too) and a Spa on site and Bayshore reception will book you transport from the airport or a driver for a personal island tour as well as a boat to White Sand Beach or for snorkelling. These are all very reasonably priced. We thoroughly recommend you book Komang to drive you around the island, his English is excellent and during our tour he explained all about the social culture on his island took us some great restaurants and showed us some stunning places and views.
Ocean suite is a little tropical paradise in Candi Dasa, a quite area which is small but busy enough for us. All the staff there are happy, smiling and willing to please, nothing is too much trouble for anyone.
The only problem we had when we were there was with the WiFi access but we told Brad, owner of Bayshore Villas, and it was fixed quickly. Brad is a great host and a ‘fountain of all knowledge’ about Bali and good company.
A really amazing place and excellent value, thoroughly recommended!
Thanks for the great review Jackie. It was a pleasure having you and Peter stay with us. Being a very open villa directly on the ocean creates a challenge to keeping the place clean for the Bayshore Staff. We will have them try to do better! Believe it or not we have to replace the A/C and TV every 2-3 years because the salt air eats away the electronics inside..
If you ever get back to Bali please come see us again!
Unforgettable experience! We had really nice holiday and we enjoyed the view the most. Good services nearby and host's tips were great!
Nous avons tout simplement adoré cette villa, sans doute la mieux placée de tout candi casa !
Il s'agit en fait d'un grand appartement (chambre, cuisine, salon, salle de bain ouverte sur l'extérieur) disposant d'une grande terrasse avec une vue imprenable sur la mer. Il y a la possibilité de se baigner dans 2 piscines très différentes (dont une avec vue sur la mer). Le seul bémol réside dans le fait qu'il n'y a pas réellement de plage baignable (digue, mer salle, plage quasiment inexistante car rochers) ! La villa est située à l'extrémité d'un complexe de villa (bayshore) avec un personnel qui est serviable et agréable (de supers chauffeurs disponibles) ! Le restaurant de ce complexe est le meilleur de candi dasa du point de vue rapport qualité prix ! En résumé c'est un excellent camp de base pour explique l'est et le nord de Bali tout en se reposant ! (Ville très calme)
Ich habe schon eine Menge Unterkünfte auf der Welt gesehen, aber das war der Besten die ich je hatte.
Tolle Lage, Super Ausblick, tolles Personal und eine Hammer Unterkunft.
5 Sterne - ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen...
About the Host, Tai
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.
