"We visited Bali for our honeymoon in January 2014, and were frankly a tad reluctant to book our stay through AirBnB. While a part of us worried that we might lose out on the 'special' feel a honeymoon ought to have, we fell in love with the pictures of the place and decided to take the chance. We don't regret it one bit! :) The villa is gorgeous, and very very comfortable. While we had heeded her warnings regarding the mosquitoes, she had made arrangements to minimize the issue as much as possible, including mosquito nets for the bed, and repellents in every room. Silvie is a wonderful, warm and generous person and played a huge part in making our trip memorable. We were treated like old friends, almost family! Her three adorable cats were a bonus treat, and a constant source of entertainment and cuddles. We were pretty clear that we wanted to avoid the typical touristy side of Bali, and Silvie helped us with not only recommendations, but arrangements to visit some of the Bali's hidden treasures. From quiet beaches to inexpensive restaurants, you can trust her recommendations blindly. She really knows the place inside-out, and can help tailor your Bali experience. We managed to see and experience what most tourists don't. Overall a very memorable and special trip for us and a big reason for that is Silvie "

"An amazing retreat in Sanur - so close to just about EVERYTHING! Merta Sari beach was just a dream to be so close to, the warungs, bars, massage parlors!
But best of all was Silvie's hospitality - it sealed our Airbnb experience - she welcomed us into her home, shared so many tips on where to go and what to do. Plus the room that we stayed in was just beautiful, with a pool that we could use whenever - even at midnight!
Highly recommended to anyone who would want some rest and respite but be close enough for the action."

The Neighborhood

Merta Sari Beach
is a beautiful beach located in the southern part of Sanur Village favored by the white sand stretch from Matahari Terbit with stunning panorama to the Indian Ocean.
This place is ideally for recreation and relaxation with the peaceful atmosphere surround it and calm seawater for swimming therefore this place many visited by tourists experience from local tourists in the holiday season.
There is a shore break situated far in front of Merta Sari Beach featured by the great, fast and powerful waves that give challenges for every surfer to enjoy the surf adventures at this surf point.

Merta Sari Beach is located in Banjar Merta Sari, Sanur Village, Denpasar City and Bali province -- Indonesia.
Shindu Beach, Segara Beach, Serangan Beach, Sanur Beach, Matahari Terbit, and Padang Galak Beach are strategically located in the center of Sanur with very good access and easy to be reached from any directions.
Mertasari beach is also close with places of interest in Denpasar City such as Badung Traditional Market, Jagatnatha Temple, Bali Museum, Bali Art Center and Bajra Sandhi Monument.
WHAT TO DO
My home is only a few minutes walk to the beach where there are many cafes and kiosks selling local handicrafts .
There is a reef that allows at high tide for good swimming and low tide wading only.
The break and the reef itself is at least half a kilometer off shore.
Surfers using stand up paddle leave daily from Sanur beach.. some on boats .
Windsurfing, kite surfing, para-sailing and jet skis all operate off Sanur beach.
Other surf locations are a short drive from Sanur. Famous surf reef break known as Uluwatu is in the southern area and takes about 30 mins drive to reach.
Seminyak & Kuta's fulfilling shopping restaurants and late night life are only half hour away and its great to go into the madness of it all and be able to escape home to peaceful Sanur.
Motor cycle and bicycle rentals are available locally as are cars be for 'self drive' or with driver.

Getting around

Scooters & private Drivers , Taxi's are cheap

Other Things to Note

I hope guests will respect my home and understand I am not a hotel with full-time service Made is a hospitality student who lives at my villa and he will help after school approx 3pm onwards until 8am .
Please keep our rooms clean when we are not around because we cannot help 24 hours but we will do best we can .

REVIEW : My experience with Silve far exceeded my expectations from before I arrived until well after I left. Before my arrival Silve was happy to answer any questions I might have which I really appreciated. Although I arrived very late, her courteous driver patiently waited and made sure nothing was a problem. The whole house is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated and the beds are super comfortable. Very nice to arrive to after a long flight. Silve herself is a generous hostess and made sure I had everything I needed and all the local knowledge necessary. Her house is located very close to the beach, a yoga barn, restaurants and a cute village with everything you need within walking distance (although she gave me a lift everywhere!). What was really great in my opinion is that she arranged her own personal massage therapist to visit the house for us and he is certainly very skilled. During my stay I enjoyed lovely breakfasts and even when another guest arrived it did not disturb me at all as there is plenty of space and privacy. Thank you so much Silve, I would have no hesitation recommending your whole house to others that want to explore this area of Bali!

  • I am sorry to have to write this as it seems no-one else has commented on this, but we found the mosquitoes at Silvie's place to be absolutely out of control. We complained about it several times to Silvie but it was never resolved.
    ( I'm not sure if it is worse there because the cats and dog roam freely throughout the house and on the beds)??
    I have been to Bali 21 times (and during the 'wet' season before) and never have I experienced mosquitoes in this proportion.
    Anyway, the reason I am writing this is that my friend has been unwell since she returned from Silvie's 3 weeks ago and has now finally been diagnosed with DENGUE FEVER from her mosquito bites. She did not stay anywhere else.
    Please be warned

    Dear Carolyn
    I am very sorry to hear about this "Dengue Fever" case few weeks after your stay with me .
    It sounds you are blaming me for the presence of mosquito's due to our lovely animals ? My cats chase mice and my very clean dog keep strangers away to keep us safe in an open living home .
    I find your comment quite strange & venom reading the other ones you wrote earlier .
    I would like to remind you that all of you cruised all over Bali including Ubud jungle & ricefields . I do not have ponds , nor dirty waters in my very clean home )
    Here is something to read : Due to Bali's hot and humid climate, mosquitos are always present and I suggest a couple of things for you in the future visiting a tropical country choosing an open living style as it shows in my photos very clearly :
    1) Most major hotels in Bali provide plug-in mosquito repellent in the room. I do as well . I suggested many times what to buy and sprayed your rooms & present mosquitonets every day more than once . What else do you think I should do , chasing all mosquito's for you :) ?? Electric mosquito repellent are available everywhere in shops so buy one cheaply and use it . I will put some of these in the rooms from now on .
    2) whenever you go out at night to the beach or on a trip use insect repellent, these days they have non-sticky ones and lemon grass oil lamps as I have or stay indoor mainly when dining out and go on (website hidden) to find more helpful tips and what dengue fever actually is .
    To all Hosts who read such complain : BE AWARE of such viscous blames to turn into being the reason for such horrific diagnose weeks after a guests stay . I wish you and Karen all Best

  • this is a wonderful place - full of good energy & a lovely surrounding!

    Silvie Illuh's Place is a jewel !!!

About
I am from Austria ,Vienna and passionate music & Asian antiques lover who lives in Bali since 1999. My life is filled with many unforgettable trips over the past decades. I lived in lots of great places around the globe such as Paris , New York , LA , Italy to name just a few of my past homes , therefore understand how valuable it is to meet so called " locals " who can give you best advice. I also love to chat with inspiring people from around the world. I feel it's a part of my responsibility to introduce Bali as a magic Island with it's pro&con's and be the best host possible . I wish to see guests leave with a smile and beautiful memories to get to know the "real deal" I hope my guests respect my home and understand I am not a hotel with full-time service . My property will only be available for " ANIMAL LOVERS " and People who appreciate Balinese open living style what includes bugs & mosquitoes , ants , and my lovely cats etc .... You can choose full privacy if you book the whole villa . We are looking forward to welcome YOU
