About this listing
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.

The house is very comfortable and nice. The homemade Ketut is also very kind and smiling person. She cooks very good. If we come back to bali again - we will surely stay here again. The house is close to the beautiful blacksand beach (5 min on moto/car) and you can see it right from your bedroom right behind the beautiful rice fields.
This villa was so beautiful! A truly special Bali experience. A very large villa that is tucked away among the fields. The pool is very large and so is the entire villa. Katut the housekeeping/cook is very friendly. Ayu and Alfonso were so nice and gave us everything we needed with plenty of recommendations. Very lovely people. We also enjoyed spending time with their dog, Tango.
The only negative I would say about the villa is that there is not much close by so daily activities, shopping and food/coffee shops are not easily accessible. But there is a beach nearby. A very small price to pay for such a lovely villa! We rented scooters and that helped get around.
Интересно оформленный дом с очень красивой территорией и большим бассейном. Месторасположение подходит для осмотра основных достопримечательностей острова. До моря и крупных магазинов достаточно далеко. Мы пользовались услугами водителя постоянно, за что ему огромное спасибо. Было очень удобно и интересно изучать Бали днем, а вечером отдыхать и купаться в собственном тропическом саду!
It is very comfortable villa. Clean every day, very nice cleaning lady Ketut. If you have transport, it is the best choose. Nearest beach is not good for swimming, but have unusual black sand. The way to beach with white sand covers 30 min by car. To Sanur is 20 It is very comfortable villa. Clean every day, very nice cleaning lady Ketuk. If you have transport, it is the best choose.

Best experience on AirBnb! From pickup to tips on Bali. Staying at Ayu and Alfonso's place was a dream come true. We especially like the privacy we got and the great layout of the house. You can tell they love their home and they put attention to detail, good design and comfortable living into the house. Highly recommended!
We had the most amazing time in Bali while staying in Ayu's villa! I traveled with a friend for a girls' trip, and Ayu picked us up from the airport despite the crazy hour of our arrival. She and her husband gave us a wonderful tour and overview of the villa once we arrived. They were very helpful, and gave us many different ways to contact them during our stay should we need any assistance. The sweet maid, Ketut, made us breakfast each morning and had some dinners waiting for us in the evenings at our request. Our driver was also arranged through Ketut, and we utilized him for each one of our 4 fantastic day trips. The beds were comfortable, and the AC in the bedrooms worked great! The garden was amazing--like something out of a book, with orchids, frangipani trees, and several other flowering trees and bushes that I didn't recognize. The location of the villa was wonderful for us, since we wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but close enough for quick trips into town. Twice, we walked down to the beach and made use of the Komune Beach Resort pool and bar. The entire walk there and back is scenic and the locals are nothing but friendly--they never failed to wave and flash smiles at us as we passed. This villa is gorgeous, and the hosts are very gracious and welcoming. If you are looking for beauty and tranquility with easy access to Balinese culture and activities, this is the place to be! Thank you, Ayu and Alfonso, for such a wonderful stay!
It's my first day back to work, returning from a wonderful vacation in Bali. Everything was great, starting from the first day there when Ayu greeted us at the airport, introduced us to her husband, Alfonso and showed us around the property. It's an amazing place, perfect to get away from the crowded city - beautiful house (home actually for us in the 7 days we spent there), very peaceful surroundings, luxurious vegetation that also gives a breath-taking scenery. Ayu and Alfonso are the perfect hosts, they made us feel extremely welcome. They put us in touch with Ketut, a wonderful lady that cooked for us while we stayed there the very best Indonesian food and made sure we have everything at our disposal. Speaking on behalf of my friends too, we would return to Ayu's place in a heartbeat - 5 out of 5 stars.

About the Host, Ayu
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.
