The Space

This Balinese influenced minimalist villa is located in the central province of Gianyar. This villa was built on this magical location because it sits surrounded by rice fields has cooling ocean breezes and is within walking distance of a typical Balinese village. The villa’s location is additional enhanced by the following; ocean and rice fields views, only a 15 minute walk to a quite beach and the world famous surf beach (Keramas), it is a thirty minute drive to the well known diving and snorkeling area of Blue Lagoon and a quite small cove white sand beach, a twenty minute drive to one of the most famous central cultural and tourist areas known as Ubud, twenty minutes drive to Sanur which is another well know Bali destination and lastly the world famous Bali Marine Safari is only a five minute drive.

Our separate guesthouse (which is included in the rental) has air conditioning, small private garden, private bathroom with shower and a queen size bed. The main house bedroom has a King size bed, a porch, bathtub and outdoor shower. We do have wireless Internet that can be used free of charge when you have the need to “keep in touch”. There is also cable TV in the living room area.

We have a full time maid who does the cleaning and assist you in other house hold needs. She can help with food shopping and renting motorbikes too. And she can prepare Balinese dishes if you would like. Also we can recommend a trustworthy Balinese driver who can pick you up at the airport and bring you to the villa.

The closest big super market is called “Hardy’s Super Market” located in Gianyar city. This is only 10 minutes drive from the villa. However, there are also a few mini markets closer by which can provide some basic items. There are a few small restaurants within walking distance. Two warungs are only a five minute walk. They serve local food such as rice and chicken and fish. There is another restaurant that has a better selection of food. It is a 15 minute walk, and they will deliver to the house. The maid can prepare meal for you if you like.

The sense of being away yet being in touch can be enjoyed here. We hope that while you are relaxing by the pool, with cooling ocean breezes, you will be reminded why it is nice to be away from the hustle of the tourist areas and in the calming experience of the magic of Bali.

Please note: Our house is not suitable for younger children between the age of two to eight.
Long term rental has an additional cost for electricity, water, deposit for damage and breaking.

  • Oh my god! This is absolutely the most amazing villa I've ever stayed among all the villa I tried from Airbnb, not just in Bali. We are simply ever shocked when we arrive there. I mean, it's like the dream villa of me. It's even better than it looks! In that case, the price is really attractive. I can ever accept higher price. The host-- Ayu is quite a helpful, nice and attractive lady. She can speak really good English, so there isn't any difficulties about communication.
    I think Ayu and her husband are actually living in the villa, so you can find everything you need and just feels like being home.
    I highly recommend this villa. Who choice and book it is truly lucky and smart! :)

  • A beautiful and peaceful property. We greatly enjoyed the place. It is not too far from Denpasar and still overall quiet. Ayu was very helpful and generous and her maid Ketut was very kind and helpful, and also an excellent cook.

  • My Indonesian trip covered many islands, from the jungles of Borneo, the dragons of Komodo, to the mountains of Flores. After a few weeks of "adventure" trekking, the trip ended at Ayu's Island of the Gods Villa on Bali. It was a perfect ending, an incredibly immaculate house, complete with an 18 meter pool steps from the open air kitchen, living room and dining room. I cannot find a single thing that wasn't perfect. She arranged pickup at the airport, which went smoothly. There was a maid who daily looked after keeping the place neat and tidy. There (email hidden) for hire in his air conditioned SUV at a cost less than renting your own car. Its the way things are done there, and makes real sense for a relaxing, no stress holiday. The setting is "rural" surrounded by rice fields, but with a driver there is nowhere you can't go on the island. I have stayed at many AirBnB's around the world and this was one of the nicest places ever. If you want a quiet, no hassle place central to everything Bali has to offer, I'd recommend booking this!

  • Looks better than the pictures! Ayu, Alfonso and their dog Tango are extremely welcoming and friendly. Their maid Ketut too is an amazing cook! She can prepare very nice vegetarian dishes. The house is filled with many treasures from all over the planet and Ayu and Alfonso are truly experienced travellers who can share tips and local insights. And the pool is divine!

  • Ayu's place is the place if you are looking for a peaceful retreat in Bali. The house is beautiful and surrounded by rice field and palm trees. In addition, the house had everything we wanted and made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. I highly recommend it.

  • We stayed at Ayu´s house, for 5 nights. It was incredible, the house was great, and Ayu, was really nice and helpful. The house sourrounded by rice fields. It´s another way to enjoy Bali. I would definitely repeat! Also I´d like to thank to Ketuk, the maid, that always tried to help us in any way.
    I recomend this house.!

  • It was excellent stay, the villa is really beautiful, spacious and well furnished, it is excellent for relax vacation wherein you have everything you need, also very romantic place :) One hing is that the location of the villa offer nice micro-climate because of the sea breeze so you didn't really need to operate the AC at most of the (website hidden) staff is efficient and polite so we really didn't have to worry about any house work including, washing clothes, ironing, .... even ordering massage at home.
    The most impressive of all of that is to get knowing the owners of the villa, Ayu & Alfonso are good welcoming, nice and very helpful. I must thank them for their time & availability, Me and my companion had the pleasure to know Ayu & Alfonso and certainly we will come back again.
    I really recommend this place to all people who appreciate 'Quality' and beautiful relaxing vacation.

    Thnaks to Ayu & Alfonso

  • It is a beautiful house in a calm place with lovely rice field view. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Swimming pools is around 18m long and it's really good for exercising. There is a great ocean and rice field view from the second floor.

    For the location. It is not a touristic place but you can easily reach Ubud and Sanur in 20-30 min via motobike. There is no restaurants in this place but I liked local small cafes with delicious and cheap food. There are some nice beaches around. There are some surfing spots as well but we didn't try them.

    House owners Ayu and Alfonso are very friendly. They gave us all the information about villa and places of interest around.

    Resume: highly recommended

About
My name is Ayu and I am from Bali, Indonesia. Alfonso and I have built our home here in beautiful Bali after having lived in several countries. We chose to live here away from the tourists’ area and all the noise that encircles them. For us the natural beauty is the best of Bali. Most sunrises or sunsets you will find us walking on the beach with our dog Tango. We enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful colors of the sky reflecting on the sand and water with only the sounds of the ocean breaking the silence. We still travel a lot and often rent out our entire house while we are away. We also enjoy having travelers staying in our guest room when we are there. Being a Balinese, I enjoy providing information about places that are not on the tourist map. I like making visitors experience to, my home country, Bali both gratifying and culturally rewarding.
