About this listing
Situated only 1’500 Meters of the center of Seminyak is a blend of only 4 clean private studios in a tropical garden.
Your refreshing studio and the huge, covered lounge overlooking a temple and ricefields will capture your heart in no time.
The house was finished in March 2012 and is located in a quiet neigbourhood, about 1.5km away from the beaches of Seminyak, Kuta and Legian (towards Denpasar).
Studio "D" is one of the smaller studios, upstairs. It has direct access to the Lounge and the shared Garden (however it has no private little garden as the studios downstairs).
The house in total has 5 private studios (of which I rent out 3), each with a comfortable queensize bed (160 x 200 cm resp. 63 × 79 inches); own bathroom, TV/Video, AC. Studio C is upstairs and has access to the big, fully equiped, shared kitchen in the lounge.
It is well equipped and perfect for homelike self-sufficient long stay. It is suitable for volunteers, students, trading researcher, surfer, authors or families. The three studios on the ground floor have access to their own little gardens.
At your wish we can add in a second bed (80 x 200 cm) as the studios are large enough. Or one or two can sleep on the big sofa on the lounge (in a nice night that is my favorite spot - even so it is in the shared area of the house).

Studio D (this one - the one upstairs): www.airbnb.com/rooms/2638160
The guest of the house will share the garden and the huge lounge upstair. The lounge is the center of our house - where we prepare food, cook together, play cards or read. The lounge has a big table, a huge sofa to chill out & relax - its own toilette.
A specious private garage is free to use your motorbike, surfboards and car, if any.
Interaction with Guests
At any time,I always at home. Iam happy to interact with you.I speak the local languages and English. Additionally I do know some German. Iam happy to show you around and tell you everything about Bali you like to know (I work as well as tourist guide). Feel free to ask for help.
Of course we can pick you up at the airport or organze a transfer (especially if you should arrive late).
Niko-Studios are located at the "antique road", the famous strip with all the local craftmans, wood workers and furniture makers.
The gorgeous sunset-beaches, shops and night life of Seminyak is only 6 minutes by motorbike (which you can rent for 5 USD/day).
At BALI DELI, about 4 minutes by bike, you can get a full range of (western) food. Even Swiss Cheese you can get there if you would fancy a tropical Cheese Fondue one night. ;-)
There are many good restaurants in the area - but as well a full arrange of "Warungs" where we / the locals eat for cheap (or take away) every day. I am happy to show you both at your wish. Or we could ask a cook to come to our house to prepare a local dish for you and your friends on the lounge.
The property has a secured and covered parking for motorbikes and car.
The best way to get around is by motorbike (which you can rent for cheap).

Had a great experience at Nikko's studio, he was extremely accommodating, helping us with small day to day things and giving great suggestions on places to visit.
The room was great, not 5 star or anything, but for roughly 20aud per night, one can't complain at all. Only downside I can think of was that it's located a little out of the way from where the parties were happening making it somewhat difficult to catch cabs from.
I give my overall experience a 8/10
Thanks a lot Nikko
Staying at Niko´s place was really pleasant. The place was nice and quiet, perfect for relaxing holidays. The distance to anywhere was really easy to reach with a motorbike. The big advantage of staying at Niko´s was his will to help you and his contacts - anything you need (pick-up at the airport, a motorbike, a car, a boat trip), he made just one phone call and everything was done.
Niko's Appartement was really great and as described. It is situated in a small and quiet street, away from the noisy rush of Denpasar but also good to reach both the beaches and the city. The room is big, clean and air conditioned. Niko is a nice guy! He helped us with everything: He picked us up from the airport, took our clothes to the laundry and ordered a cab... We really enjoyed our time in Bali and thank Niko very much! We will definitely come back :)
Niko's Studios weren't my first choice when I was first looking for an apartment to stay for a month but it's definitely my first choice when I'm coming back!
The House is located a little further out of Seminyak which makes it a great place to relax and calm down but it also means you will have to drive a motorbike to get anywhere. I would not recommend this location to anyone who can't ride a motorbike. But if you can, which is surprisingly easy in Bali, it's the perfect place to stay at.
The studios are equipped with everything you will need, even with a freshwater supply and Niko was so kind to lend me his DVDS player.
On top of the fully equipped kitchen Niko is an awesome guide and showed me many warungs and other places to eat at. He also took a whole day off to show me the way to Dreamland and Uluwatu making him the perfect host.
Sitting outside on the big couch overlooking the rice fields and talking to Niko and other visitors is definitely something to remember.
Since the first moment Niko was very helpful. He went to the AirPort to receive us as we asked for the transfer. We stayed in total 20 days with Niko. He always available to help and to give some ideas about what to do And where to go.
The house have a very nice shared kitchen And the room is very confortable.
Niko rent us one moto and was very easy to go to the beachs.
He is a very nice host. Me and my girlfriend recommend Niko's studios.
Die Unterkunft (Niko Studio) liegt weniger als zehn Fahrminuten von Semyniak und Kuta entfernt. Vom der lauten Partymeile bekommt man aber nichts mit, da die Unterkunft im Ecken einer ruhigen Nachbarschaft liegt. Der Garten und die Lounge im Obergeschoss sorgen für ein offenes, familiäres Ambiente. Das Zimmer ist geräumig, modern und sauber. Mit einem eigenen kleinen Kühlschrank, TV (mit einer grossen Auswahl an DVDs) und Wifi, Airconditioning, einem Safe etc. war das Zimmer top ausgestattet.
Niko, der Herr des Hauses, war äusserst zuvorkommend und hilfsbereit. Auf ihn war Verlass! Seine Insider-Tipps waren goldwert, und nebenbei ist er ein ausgezeichneter Tour Guide.
Ich kann diese Unterkunft nur weiterempfehlen, das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis stimmt auf jeden Fall!
Gruss aus der Schweiz
The accommodation (Niko Studio) is located less them ten minutes from Semyniak and Kuta by car or moped. It's totally quiet at night, because it's located in the corner of a quiet neighborhood. The garden and the lounge on the first floor are very nice and make a familiar atmosphere. The room is commodious, modern and clean. A little fridge, a TV (with a huge selection of films) and Wifi, airconditioning, a safe etc. make it even better!
Niko, the host, was very kindly and helpful. The trips with him as a tour guide where fantastic, and his insider tipps helped us a lot.
I recommand this accommodation, it's totally worth it.
Cheers from Switzerland
I spent in the studio Nico 1 month and I loved it! Nico organized a transfer from the airport to continue to help resolve issues related to transportation, since I can't drive a scooter. The apartment is located in a convenient location, just 5-10 minutes drive from the tourist center of the island and the beaches semenyak that was important to me! on the first day of course I was not satisfied that there was no internet in the room, but only in the lounge veranda, but Niko quickly solved the problem and the day after I had wi-fi in my room. Thank you Ayu and Nico for the warm welcome!
