It was my first time in Bally, and was very fabulous staying in Silve's villa. The town located at Sanur beach, was very tranquille and peaceful. It was great pleasure to have sip of coffee, looking at shinning garden which was slightly wet by morning rain .
Silve is not only kind host but also enetertaining artist. I enjoyed listening to her iPad music playlist. In living room, at where I can see beautiful swimming pool, I had Bintang beer with good friends, while great music playing in the air at night.
I want to greatly thank Silve, who letting me know about real Ballinesian life. She also told me so much useful information for my trip.
She is now probably having a great time with her precious daughter from Vienna.
If I have chance to visit Bally again, I would like to stay in modern Villa that Silve is currently preparing.
I had the most delightful week stay at Silve's home!! So many things good to say, I highly recommend her. She cares very much about her guests and gives extra touches to ensure you have a great experience. She had so many good recommendations, including using her delightful driver Arsana. You never have to worry about where to go, or how to get around, as they are both very helpful with suggestions. It was a safe, easy 5 minute walk to the beach, and I like bed the slower pace of Sanur. Silve checked in just enough to make sure we had everything we needed, and also gave us plenty of privacy. Thank you!
Amidst what can be (albeit lovable) chaos and draining heat even on an island like Bali, being able to come home at night to SIlve's villa was a treat. One can always tell them most about people when problems arise, and even the littlest thing if it came up, Silve and her merry hospitality band would snuff it out. A wonky curtain, laundry and ironing, even replacing a watermelon, she was superb in the way she went above and beyond the call. The pool is great and the outdoor shower is lovely. Her driver, handyman, maid - all just lovely, outgoing, caring people. The location is ideal, a short but fun walk through alleys 7-10 minutes to the water. I'll be back for sure.
Silve is a wonderful host, who shared her knowledge of the Balinese culture and her own experience of life with me, which I really appreciate.
I also enjoyed the nice walk in the alley to the beach (5 mins), a session of quite yoga in the bamboo hut right in front of the ocean, biking around the town, and a wonderful massage on the patio in Silve's house....
We chose to stay with Silve because of her 150 plus ratings - all positive! And we weren't disappointed. Silve's villa is a bohemian-styled home in a convenient location at the south end of Sanur beach. You can reach the beach in only five mins walk or ten mins to the centre of town. This is a home-stay arrangement so Silve is there most of the time working away in her bedroom/study (you can however arrange to have the whole place to yourself for your stay at extra cost). The villa is split down the middle by the living area so you have your own bathroom and privacy. Silve has a maid who comes every day and keeps the place very clean and can also do your washing for a small fee of your choosing. The pool is the center of the home and is delightfully cool (unlike the uncomfortable spa - like temperatures most pools have in bali) and the surrounding art and personal touches make it a special place to relax. Silve herself is a fantastic and motherly character who has lived all over the world while working in the music industry - as a result her extensive ipad playlists provide a fantastic backdrop to an evening in the pool. Our 4 year old son loved Silve and her two cats who are given free reine in the villa. Silve also has extensive knowledge of the area and handy hints on how to save money by bargaining with local businesses. If you are looking for a friendly, completely secure and safe environment to enjoy your stay in sanur I would highly recommend staying with Silve. But remember, it's a home, not a 5 star hotel - for us, this was certainly part of the appeal. Should you choose to stay with Silve, you'll not only enjoy a window into the life of a long-time bali expat, but you may also find a life-long friend in bali. P.S. If you are looking for a good massage, don't go to the local place up the road as it may not be the type of massage you are looking for - if you know what I mean ; )
Thank you so much Matt . I had a wonderful time with your family and humbled for such detailed review . means a lot to me that your holidays went that well . Don't we all deserve a nice relaxing time-out :) Kiss that little cute " monkey" for me . Hugs Hugs and Sunshine your way .
Silvie is a warm, friendly and generous host. She definitely made us feel welcomed and at ease. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at her beautiful home. Her house is conveniently located within walking distance to the beach as well as Sanur's town centre with its range of good food, massage places and craft shops. Within walking distance from her house is also the Yoga Barn studio along the beach.
Everything about our stay was perfect, her villa-styled house is a great place to hang out even on lazy stay-in days. She also has good connections with drivers, masseuse and the local bakeries and restaurants in case you need to make booking for a special celebration.
Thank you so much for your beautiful & warm review . "We love everything about our stay :-) " What more a host can hear to be happy and it feels so good to know my guests leave with good memories . I wish I could have gotten a real birthday cake :) but those 3 little Balinese offering cakes are probably more special than a chocolate cake . My love and gratefulness for both of you .
Beautiful house in a great location. Very cosy and welcoming!

About the Host, Silvie Beatrix Cempaka
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 5*hotel with full-time service but I do my best to be a helpful host . My very loyal , trustworthy & kind maid Wayan will help with many things . She loves children very much and goes also shopping for you .
My property will only be available for " ANIMAL LOVERS " . At the moment I do not have my pets because I moved to my new house mid of March 2015 and 6 of my cats & one dog live in my Balinese family home for now .
I am looking forward to welcome YOU & wish you a relaxing holiday !
