This Bungalow is located in the heart of Seminyak, Bali.
You can rent the 2 bedroom house or you can rent a room: both of which are en suite. (Please inquire for peak season pricing). The prices shown are for one room during off season.
Shopping, dance spots, yoga locations and the beach are short distances away by foot or a short few minute taxi ride.
Barrida is good for semi-budget travelers who enjoy being out of their rooms, experiencing what Bali has to offer. Enjoy for a small fee ($2US) just about any hotel pool in the area.
There are over 5 places to dance salsa and 3 places that hold Milonga...weekly!
From the supermarket (Bintang Supermarket) you will find Ojek (motobike taxis), taxis and many shops.
The neighborhood is composed of mostly Balinese people and 4 long-term residents (Holland x 2, Italian x 1 and Australian x 1).
The reason to stay at my place:
0. Hot/cold water and A/C
1. Close to dance locations
2. Quiet yet close to the shops...action
3. Affordable which allows you to visit many more places. For example, pay $2 US at any hotel pool attendant and you can have 7 pools in a week. Why not?
4. The cleaning lady is great
5. The local neighbors are welcoming
6. You can do yoga or practice your dance just outside your room. You can have instructors come to you
7. The beds are nice and come with nets
8. When I am home I can accompany you to many places. Some people prefer to go at their own pace. That's fine, too.
9. Quiet area (and we are, too)
Please also leave your comments in the guest book
We are looking forward to seeing you :)

Thank you and please excuse the small hurdle for high season.
I had an amazing time at Matt's home and also with Matt! Everything written on the web is accurate, the location is great, just central of Kuta (shops, restaurants, money exchange, post, massage places few minutes by foot). The sea nearby wasn't good for swimming at the time I was in Bali, but the hotelpool only a minute away from Matt's place was just perfect...also the food was delicious.
Matt was an amazing host, very pleasant company. I would go back anytime to this place.
Staying at Matt's was great! Everything is just exactly as it is written! Inge and Kadek are very kind and always ready to help! Location is great! There is a big store one minute away of walking! In the kitchen we could cook and even baked! Rooms are very cozy! Guys, enjoy!
what a great holiday I had in Bali thanks to accommodation in the Matt's villa !!.Inge welcoming in his absence ( it's a pity, I really liked to know Matt) was extraordinary kindness. The villa was exactly the typical place where I loved spending those wonderful days. Cleanliness, beauty and comfort of the perfect place! As soon as I had a small problem, Inge was present, efficient and lovable. I keep a memory of this fabulous welcome. I would definitely recommend this hosting
Barrida Bungalow was a really great place to stay in Bali. We enjoyed the Balinese ambiance of the Bungalow, completing what is a nice break from a modern city life. The location was central yet quiet & also very safe.
My experience in communicating with Matt was pleasant. He was patient, understanding and very accommodating to my concerns and inquiries. Also, both Inge and Kadek were also very kind and hospitable to us.
Would definitely recommend this place to friends and family who are lookig to visit Bali!
Matt's bungalow was totally lived up to its promised. The moment you enter the premise you are greeted by a lush green grass with a beautiful frangipani flower scatter around. Then you see the long, wooden floor terrace overlooking the garden. You can easily sat around on the long antique bench or sat on the floor using the beanbag.
The pantry is tucked away in the corner conveniently, with a small dining table and chairs. You can do grocery and cook breakfast or dinner easily.
The room is so cozy, spacious and clean. The bathroom is more than enough. It had hot water, clean towels, mirror and all you need to get ready.
The bed is clean, the wardrobe is big and a full length mirror is also available.
The location is also very convenient. Although you have to walk a bit, its not a distance at all. Across the road is the Bintang Supermarket with more than enough stuff available, an ATM, several stores which sell clothes. bikinis and food.
Matt, Inge and Kadek the house keeper is excellent. They are good people. Very patient, And so helpful.
I had a great time and highly impress.
Will definitely try to book the place again when i go back visiting Bali which will sooner than later.
The home is as advertised and is ideal for a stay in Bali. The beds comfortable and netted, which is a comfort. Plenty of drinking water. We organised with the housekeeper to be met at the airport, which really helped. The cleaner came daily to the house and was perfect. The houskeeper helped answer our question, nothing was to much trouble. The question one has to ask is, when we return to Bali would we stay here... Yes!! without a second thought. Many thanks to Inge for her kind actions in help to celebrate an anniversary.
Matt's Barrida Bungalow is a lovely choice for those seeking to be in the heart of Seminyak. It's in a small street directly off the main "Jalan Seminyak" filled with shops, restaurants and the Bintang Supermarket directly accross. Very friendly neighbors living in traditionnal Balinese compounds which gives you a nice inside on local life. Part of local life is also having roosters which can be a little peeving though after a day or two you eventually adjust and come to terms with the noise. For the price, location, and spacious house I would definitely recommend this place. Two large bedrooms (Balinese standard) both with complete bathrooms, large outdoor area and good sized kitchen. The house could use some additionnal furniture though the simplicity is nice.
All in all I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a neat place in a great locattion at a fantastic price. Rooster background noise included.
We spent two month in the house with my wife and son, and have a great time.
Really confortable, with all you need, and close to everything in seminyak!!
We will came back!!
We stayed in Barrida Bungalow for a month and found our experience there to be great. The rooms were good, the aircon was good, and the maid is great. We saved quite a bit of money staying here instead of a hotel room. It is a short walk to Bintang Supermaket and Cafe Seminyak for supplies or the morning coffee (and almond croissant). Good kitchen w/ spices for doing some home cooking.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
