This self-contained house has a spacious 55-square meter wood-floor master bedroom with wrap-around views to the beach and Sanur across the fields. A spacious and romantic setting, yet close enough to the city if you need it.
Self contained house with spacious 55-square meter wood-floor master bedroom, guest bedroom or study, kitchen, semi-outdoor bathroom and toilet, verandah and porch that opens out to a pond.
Located 1km north of Sanur, this listing is within a walled compound run as a bed & breakfast. It is the the Northern pavilion among the cluster of bungalows with a shared pool and gardens with access to Sanur Beach via 2 rice-fields and the "sunrise walkway" of Sanur which stretches for 8kms from Padang Galak to Mertha Sari.
Your host is an author-publisher who makes a great fruit salad :-)
The sea breeze keeps the houses cool. The black-sand beach provides ample swimming opportunities during good weather, while the sheltered swimming pool in the garden is good to swim in day and night, in all weather conditions.
Besides use of the self-contained house, guests have access to a shared pool, kitchen and dining area, as well as a vehicle parking space.
Interaction with Guests
You will be neighbours with Sarita (a.k.a "Mum") who will help you settle in and brief the staff on how you like your daily breakfast prepared. She is an author-publisher who makes a great fruit salad an amazing omelets.
Barely 100m to our east is a surf beach popular with locals on Sundays, attracting a range of snack vendors.
The neighborhood is relatively quiet and peaceful during the week, yet close enough to walk to Sanur, and easily access most parts of Bali via the Ngurah Rai and Ida Bagus Mantra Bypass roads. We can arrange driver with a car or rental motorbike, or bicycles with prior warning.
The most ideal way to get around is by bicycle or motor bike, which we can help you rent from third parties. We have enough space for bikes in the shared car parks, as well as for up to 5 cars. Currently there is only one "resident" car so there is plenty of shared parking for guests.
We are on Jalan Padang Galak, which is inland from the main Bypas Ngurah Rai Road.
Bali's new Sarbagita Busway system plies the bypass every 15 minutes from 6 AM to 9 AM, and some of these busses go all the way to the airport, while most go to Kuta and Nusa Dua.
It is theoretically possible to arrive at the airport and catch the bus to Sanur, but airport authorities under pressure from the taxi companies do not publicize this - nor do they make the bus stopping points easy to find.
The closest bus stop is 1km walk away, so we recommend guests who need help arriving here to stop closer to Sanur and meet at the KFC or Dunkin Donuts instead.
Other Things to Note
We are not a hotel, as such we do not have 24-hour check-in service. Guests who check in after hours are recommended to book a pick-up service by one of the many drivers who know how to find our place.
First-time guests are recommended to arrive during daylight hours to enable one of us to welcome you.
Wow! What can I say!? Such a relaxing experience, I felt I could stay there for weeks! The pool is sensational. The villa is spacious, and can comfortably fit a whole family. It's right on the beach and within walking distance of the Sanur restaurant strip if you MUST have a mojito (and why wouldn't you?). Better still - get your mojito ingredients and make your own at home to drink poolside! That's the advantage of being in a home, rather than an impersonal hotel. I'll certainly be heading back there as soon as I can ...
Kadek made every effort to ensure our stay was a comfortable one. It's no surprise either! He's professional hotelier that happens to help his lovely mother out with her guest houses. We enjoyed our stay in the quaint guest house. The upstairs bedroom has a lovely view of the ocean. Guests be warned, however, that the chickens next door are a very lively group. If you're a light sleeper, make sure to bring ear plugs.

Born and raised in Bali until graduating from highschool, I pursued tertiary education in New Zealand and Canada. I'm now living in Bali where I manage my grandfather's homestay. This AirBnB account is created mostly to help my mum (born in NZ, has lived in Bali for over 40 years) get guests for her BnB.
