About this listing
The king fisher hut is a simple but cozy little cottage in our peaceful garden. It is an old Javanese farmer house from wood which we adapted for our guests.
It can host one, not too tall, person and has all you need for a simple retreat.
Balila guesthouse has 5 rooms in different locations.
All 5 rooms are lovely furnished, have hot water, fan and a private terrace looking into a green garden.
We provide also free drinking water in each room from our filtered water and you can refill your drinking bottle 24hrs.
Our king fisher cottage stands in the quiet back garden of our family house, where we live all the year.
It is an old Javanese farmer house out of wood which we adapted for our guests.
The hut has its own bathroom and a little terrace with a hammock looking out to the garden.
The room has a single bed (120cm/200cm), fan and hot water shower in a semi open bathroom.
It is a very cozy place in a peaceful atmosphere where you can enjoy your own little space.
The wooden cottage is only for single person due to its small size and also more appropriate for smaller persons because of the height of the door and a beam inside.
Please be aware that we live with the nature here and that it can happen that a gecko or frog visits you!
The name comes from the bird kingfisher which you can see sometimes in our garden. Its feathers have a beautiful blue color, the same like we used in the cottage.
This listing is for king fisher hut only!
Please look and book separate for our 4 other rooms:
In the back garden, close to the wooden cottage, are 2 rooms (purple and orange) next to each other in a little house that is surrounded from a tropical garden. Both rooms have their own semi open bathrooms with hot showers.
'Hanuman Bungalow' is a little separated bungalow, with a little kitchen and a daybed on its terrace.
Moon room is attached to our family house but has also its own bathroom and terrace and the best wifi connection.
We serve healthy breakfast and try to be environment friendly as much as possible.
The next and biggest yoga center(the yoga barn) is only 7 min. walking distance away.
In our street are many international restaurants, galleries, mini markets, ATM s and art shops.
The famous 'ARMA Museum' is our direct neighbor and you can hear their daily dance performances from the garden. It can be quite loud but its only 1 hour and should not be missed in a Bali trip!
Our location is very close to the center but we are still surrounded from a tropical jungle with lots of birds, butterflies and frogs.
My husband is also a driver and tour guide and he can bring you around all Bali.
With our knowledge about this island we can help you to find the best places!

Interaction with Guests
We are most of the time at home and can provide lots of information to our guest.
Made, the hosts husband is also a driver and tour guide and brings around our guests wherever they want.
We are located next to the ARMA museum and so you can listen every night to their dance performance for free! This is a cultural Must for Bali visitors. But don't worry, it last only about 1 hour and ends around 8.30pm.
we can provide you transports and tours and also airport pick ups.
smoking is allowed only on the terraces.
please refill your drinking bottles with our provided water so we all can reduce the plastic bottles on this island.
