The Space

Rent a house with everything you need from Internet to AC, to a swimming pool, and much more in a traditional village in Nusa Dua Bali, 5mn walking distance from a beautiful beach (perfect surf spot).
Ideal for a family with children or surfers.

The house is located at the entrance of a traditional village located next to the high-ends hotels area in Nusa Dua.

I will help you to rent a motorbike/car, and provide you any information you may need.

My area is nice and quiet with a lot of nearby activities (beaches, shopping, surf, temples, ...).

If you plan to party every night this is not the right house for you.
You can drive 30mn to the party area without problem (I do it on week ends), but my area is more about discovering the real Bali...

Ideally located for surfers too

The last 30 meters of road to my house have no asphalt but you can still use it really easily with your motorbike or car (Bali don't have asphalt everywhere yet :) ).

_ Fully furnished with traditional teak wood furnitures
_ Swimming Pool
_ TV Cable with flatscreen TV
_ Wireless Internet
_ Air Conditioning in the bedrooms
_ Fans in every room
_ Maid service coming to clean the house 3 times a week
_ Kitchen with everything you need if you feel like cooking
_ CCTV security system
_ Safe deposit box
_ Nice decoration
_ Pets Allowed
_ Smoking Allowed
_ Parking outside
_ Family/Kid Friendly

Unless many others places in Bali, mine doesn't pretend to be an "exclusive and prestigious luxury villa".
This is a real house that was built with my soul and my heart...

Interaction with Guests

I live in a different part of the island and may not be fully available but my friend and employee Pak Super will take good care of you. He manage the pool and lives nearby in the village.

The Neighborhood

Please check the map https://www.airbnb.com/manage-listing/285073/guidebook with many info regarding what to do, where to eat or to shop in the area.

Getting around

The best way to go to my place from the airport is to buy a ticket to Grand Nikko Hotel at the taxi counter at the exit of the airport arrival hall (about 10USD, fixed price).
When you arrive near Nikko, ask the taxi to call me on my phone number ((phone number hidden)), so I can show him the exact location of the house.

  • with what can i start.... first of all i want to say that the host is a nice man but the rest terrible
    1. we arrive at 1 in morning, Gael slept in a bed... sweaty... no other sheets to change the bed
    2. Bathroom was a mess, I think someone threw up or something
    3. no towels, no toilet paper
    4. outside was a sofa with pillows were very very dirty
    5. cutlery was rusty
    6. in the other bed in the morning i notice that was stains of blood
    7. internet connection was terrible 1 min last then we had to restart
    8. then the neighborhood was ... i can not describe in words ... road with potholes (barely wanted a taxi to bring us) dilapidated houses, dubious world ..... scary " not so many white people around here" Gael's words
    9. Gael warned us, not walk, checked the doors always closed .... insecurity
    10. Gael has installed cameras, even in the bedroom - no privacy
    11. bathrooms smelled of public toilets
    and many more ....
    i have to say that we were very disappointed, at the 2 o'clock in the morning we booked an hotel and left at 9 o'clock in the morning
    PS I took some pictures so I can prove that I'm not rambling ... sorry I did took pictures at the neighbors

  • Amazing holiday. The photos don't actually do the place justice - beautiful house and garden in a peaceful location. Host was brilliant - very helpful and everything we needed was organised really swiftly. Would recommend 100%

  • Looking for the best vacation rental in all of Bali? You've found it!!

    Staying at Gael's house simply MADE our vacation. Gael (who lives in Bali) is a gracious, friendly and easy-going Frenchman. His house is spacious, comfortable and a wonderful place to either relax on the cushy couches on the back porch and in the cool, private pool! With good internet and relaxed vibe, this is also a great place to work. I wrote a huge portion of my PhD thesis during the month I spent here!

    The California king bed in the master bedroom was wonderful to sleep in, and we loved being able to use the air conditioning to cool off at night. The house is very close to the coast, in an amiable neighborhood of Sawangan - perfect for quick scooter rides in Nusa Dua or out to Uluwatu Temple and the surrounding beaches. The beach nearest to the house is only a 2 minute scooter ride (15 minute walk) and it's a nice place to surf and check out local monkeys in the early morning. Of the nearby beaches, this one is the best one by far! Locals clean it and will rent you a set of padded lounge chairs with a large umbrella for a reasonable price. When the waves are good, the surfing is decent there, and when they're not you can snorkel out to a nice little coral reef a short swim out past the sea grass patches.

    In addition to the advantages of comfort and location, the house stays clean during your stay due to the efficient maid service, and is also looked after by an amazingly helpful caretaker named Pak Super. We actually hired Pak Super one day to drive us to Ubud and surrounds. He drives beautifully, and has a very nice Toyota SUV with good air conditioning (Bali can be quite hot during the day). We also hired him to take us back to the airport at the end of the trip, and he cut the transit time in half by taking the faster bypass roads, which taxis generally avoid. Plus, Pak Super is just a friendly, kind and funny man!

    All-in-all, we had an incredible stay! If you're thinking about staying in Gael's house, DO IT!

  • It was really cool ! We were 4 people there for surfing. The house is exactly the same as in the description, the location is not to busy but there is some shop to buy some good nasi goreng ^^, you can get some surfing because the closest beach is at 10 min by foot. If you need something (scooter, question, taxi...anything) you can call the gael's friends "Super" who can help you at evrytime.Or you can call Gael, who stay at your dispositon at all time.

    Thanks, we really enjoyed !

    Thank you!

    Response from Gael:

    I feel sorry about this small setbacks that happened during the stay.

    To prevent future cuts from the government, I have bought a bigger water reserve and with 2 000 liters with can avoid government cuts for as long as one week.

    As for the electricity I also bought a small generator that will run in case of cuts.

    Thank you :-)

  • Заселились 9го марта в 3 часа дня. дом был грязный, хотя должны были убрать до 2х часов. в маленькой ванной разбитая раковина, в большой раковина целая, но из нее выпадала постоянно канализационная труба. позвонила Гаелу, он сказал, что заменит раковину, чего так за 2 недели и не случилось. до вечера пришлось стоять над уборщицей, чтобы она все отмыла, так как было невозможно пользоваться бассейном, кухней и ванными. Фотографии дома старые и отфотошопленные, так как дом сейчас ужасно запущен, мебель, сантехника.. а сколько насекомых я поймала в кровати маленькой комнаты.. но это еще мелочи. основная проблема в канализации, постоянно были засоры, что в унитазах, что в душе. по жаре на море не находишься, идти минут 15 с горки и на горку, соответственно нужен транспорт. заранее написала Гаелу о том что в первый же день мне нужна машина на автоматической коробке передач, так как по приезду еду на встречу по работе. в итоге мне пригнали механику к вечеру, на встречу я опоздала. за 2 недели так хозяина и не увидела, как-то он избегал встречи, хотя должен был быть на Бали с 13го марта. из персонала большое спасибо парню по имени Супер, он всячески помогал и старался, но впечатления от дома он не спас, в принципе это было невозможно сделать. я приезжала с пожилыми бабушкой и дедушкой и по-хорошему нужно было сразу же съезжать в гостиницу, но мне нужно было уехать и я не оценила сразу всех проблем этого дома. никому не советую туда ехать, за эти же деньги можно снять 2 номера в гесте с более человеческими условиями. тем более у меня вопрос с ценой не стоял, я выбирала по отзывам и фотографиям. в итоге ужасно разочаровалась и вряд ли снова буду бронировать виллу. отель как-то надежнее.

  • We had a very good time at Gael's house!
    Gael and his staff were very nice to us and helpful. Gael answers very quickly if you have any question or if there's anything concerning the house.
    We, a family of two adults, a 3 years old and a baby, were at his place for two weeks. The house is perfect for a family.
    When we planned to go to Gael's house, we were not supposed to have a car, but we finally decided to rent one. I would definitly recomment to anyone who stays there to have a motorbike or a car to travel around.
    Bali is a small island and there's a lot to see around and public transport is hard to find on the peninsula.
    I would stay at Gael's place again and I warmly recommend it!
    Maude and family
