Cosy villa with view & private swimming pool in the heart of Kerokoban.
Kerokoban is a Balinese area, NOT crowded by tourism, and has the privilege to be equal distance to Echo beach, the active life and shopping in Seminyak and the nightlife of Umalas. 10 mins ride for each of them, and thus still staying in a Balinese way of life.
Around, there are the famous Café Moka (best place to have breakfast) and Pizza boy (recommended on trip advisor), both at 30 secs by scooter and 3 mins walking. The "Taulun" restaurant where you can have a typical indonesian dinner sitting on "water" :) and a lot of shops/supermarkets/fruit shops, etc, etc. All you need for your daily shopping. There will be a booklet in the villa for recommendations.
The Villa has an infinite view, Ouah! It changes from all "normal" villas in Seminyak built between 4 walls to be rented out. It is so pleasant to enjoy the view and the private swimming pool which keep the water at 32*. Pool is quite nice 4x6m and 1,8m depth
The 2 bedrooms have ensuite bathroom (w shower roofless, tub and toilet), equipped with AirCon, a flat TV LED, DVD player and a collection of movies.
1 bedroom has a king size bed (180cms), the other has 2 large twins (120cms). 4 people total.
The kitchen/living room/dinning space opens to the garden and swimming pool to enjoy the Equatorial weather. Also Toilet in the garden of course. Hot water in the whole villa.
Wireless internet included of course (XL extreme, the fastest in Bali). Lock-safe included. Pool service and daily housekeeping.
I put the price low as this villa is direct from Balinese owner, a friend, I published the villa for him. This is not a Business Villa. You will feel at home there.
10 mins beach
10 mins famous Echo Beach
10 mins Umalas, and nightlife of famous Petit Tengget.

This place is as per all the pics. Its my second time here and would recommend to anyone who has been to bail a few times. It is located on a quiet small road (called a gang in indonesian) and was easy to stay. The open plan is the best way to be inbail. Fresh water is supplied in a large cooler/hotwater and a cleaner comes in ever day to assist and can help with taking your clothes to the laundry or going to the market. She was friendly polite and was very professional. She is a new cleaner to last time and seems to want to help alot more, we had clean towels when ever we needed them and she was very punctual. Always asking if there was more she could help with. The host Rafi, was out of town but the villa has a on call local guy named Sacho who was really easy to contact (even on his days off as it was a wedding ) I felt safe and secure here as all the rooms have key locks and there is a safe in a room. My biggest tip here is to get a Mona fresh biz card and use if to get taxis home. The massage place just 45 seconds from here is CHEAP and wonderful. Hair cut was great massage was great- no waxing but who cares. The place is wonderful for small children as the rooms are GIANT. There are no trinkets and doors lock with key so at night no one can go exploring. Showers are luxury and water is continuous hot and brilliant pressure. Highly recommend for small families. Not good for wheel chairs as there is a big entrance steps and narrow also rooms are not connected by a flat path there are cute little pavers to go from each zone. Honest and safe place away from kuta noise and smells. Also the Chinese food place out front on the main street is 15000 for brilliant nasi campur, and speaks lovely English.
Perfect location, close to beaches, close to warungs and restaurants. Problem with the electricity which switched off at least 10 times per day. Kitchen could use some freshening up. The rice field view is replaced by beautiful bougainville as other villas have now been built in neighbouring rice field.
Perfect swimming pool, spacious bedrooms, & nice touch: bath rooms partly outside.
The pictures and the description of the house are completely misleading!.
I completely agree with the evaluation of Belen, written below (unfortunately I discovered it too late...).
The maintenance, house keeping, cleaning are non existing or simply miserable. During 1 month our shower was never cleaned...
We got 3 towels, which were never changed or washed...
No daily cleaning at all.
The kitchen sink is covered with rust... Not very hygienic!
Many problems with insects (ants in kitchen, terrace... !!!) not abnormal for an "outdoor" house which is not properly cleaned...
The furniture, kitchen equipment (?), bathtubs are old and dirty.
No warm water in the kitchen.
Daily internet failures... Frequent electricity failures.
The house is located (too) far from everything.
Pool is ok, bedrooms also.
Neighbour slaughters daily some pigs, mostly between 5 and 6 AM.....! Goodmorning Bali :-s
We decided to leave the house earlier than anticipated.
Impossible to recommend this house. Deceived...
I fell in love with this Villa by the pictures posted, but unfortunately these do not conform to reality. The location of this villa is not good if you want to do excursions, since you lose a lot of time on road travel in addition to lots of traffic and congestion.
Regarding the Villa: The kitchen to be outdoors cooking with all these bugs of the place, leaving dishes and glasses to dry, these are filled with ants, the sink is very rusty I guess for moisture. The bedrooms are spacious, the 2 bathrooms are too damaged to have the roof open, bathtubs are very dirty and old, and faucet malfunctions by having a lot of lime, floors and walls are badly stained by lime and not cleaned. The toilet if you use it when it rains you gets wet completely, as the roof is open. The advertising shows daily cleaning, that are not true, for five days, the cleaning lady just came two and only to put the bed covers in place but not cleaned bathrooms, floors, and said toilet paper or towels changed. We stayed until the last day with the same towels, toilet paper with sanitary soil and dirt.
THAT SAID, THE PICTURES ARE BEAUTIFUL. THE REALITY IS NOT SO. VERY DISAPPOINTING.
We had a lovely stay in the villa, loved the location, away from the tourist area but you definately need a bike. It was only taking us 10mins to Echo Beach where you can surf, swim, eat or just admire the lovely view. Thanks to Sacho for the hospitality.
My family and I stayed a week at the Coool View villa and had a wonderful time. We had a great view of the beautiful garden and pool. We loved the pool, beauty, and privateness of this villa. The maid comes daily and is very kind. We communicated through drawing pictures or gesturing. You just have to tell her when you want clean towels. Sacho, the manager helped us arrange for a driver to fetch us from the airport and explained how everything worked. He connected us with a driver if we wanted future trips. He also came over the next morning when the power was cut off in the middle of one night. Since this villa is located a half block off the main road, on an unpaved road, we found it helpful to get a business card from the fruit store and show it to the drivers when we wanted to be dropped off. We found the contrasts of this villa delightful. Contrasting with the busy traffic of the main road, a half block away, it felt like we were in a very rural setting, hearing roosters crowing at all hours and bats flying through at dusk. The bedrooms are totally enclosed with flat screen TVs and air-conditioning, The kitchen/ living room area is open to the pool and the bathrooms also have an area that is open to the sky. The only slight draw backs, which were out of the owner's control, were that there was a new home being built right next door, which was noisy sometimes during the day and the smoke from the neighbor's burning garbage pit across the street floated over to the villa sometimes. I would recommend this villa for a great experience in Bali!
it was amazing villa and they take care of the cleaning and security
it was very privet and also close to wonderful rice farms and our Balinese neighbor were so kind.
I would like to thank sacho for his efforts and help.
Nice trip to Bali and very good communication with Rafi andhis guys ...
But New Years in Bali is ... quite special ;)
Coming to Bali the first time was quite a trek for us across the ocean from Texas. I found Rafi's place on AirBNB, and it almost seemed too good to be true. On arriving, I realized that even the photos didn't quite paint the picture of how fabulous this place was. Rafi was great; and helpful, and the place was pristine. Not to mention the pool being absolutely fantastic.
It was in a solid area a few stops from the road; a good location for grabbing extra beer, or a fruit smoothie in the morning.
I highly recommend if you want something a little further outside the normal hustle and bustle of Kuta!
Great place for a peaceful Bali vacation. Away from crowds. A driver/cab/bike will be needed to travel around to the main attractions. Awesome place to enjoy private time with friends and family. Amazing pool. For the price this villa is offering, most definitely, totally worth it. Had a great time there. Overall 5 out of 5 stars.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
