This Bungalow is located in the heart of Seminyak, Bali.
You can rent one room (while the other may also be rented or you can rent the entire house/villa. Please inquire for peak season and entire house pricing).
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)

Loved the stay here. Matt and Inge were always there to help out (getting a driver to pick me up at the airport, answering questions about Seminyak, etc). I highly recommended this place for the accommodation itself and the location.
Baridda Bungalow was a home away from home, Matt, Inge and Kadek are all lovely people (though i haven't met matt personally, he's been very helpful with every questions that i had) they made my Bali trip very enjoyable, I will definitely stay at Baridda again if i were to return to Bali anytime soon
Inge was worried that the neighbours might be too noisy for us, maybe to a few light sleeper but we feel just right at home, thank you for letting us stay at Baridda, we left a few beautiful shells that we've picked up from the beach, home that might add to the decorations :)
My stay at Barrida Bungalow was a life-changing experience, and I mean that in the best of ways. I found myself immersed in the "Balinese experience," which was very unlike anything that I would have found in some soulless hotel. Yes, there are roosters, and dogs barking and children playing, but it's rich and colorful and surprisingly comforting. The bungalow itself is lovely and charming and tidy and immediately felt like home. Of course, part of that was Inge, who's delightful and very thoughtful. She was quick to help in any way that she could (I asked her about a hair drier and she happily came up with one). And Kadek, who came around everyday to clean and do laundry, was utterly charming and a joy to be around. And I shall never forget the birds singing in the morning (along with the roosters, of course). Sounds such as I'd never heard before. And when it's quiet, it's very quiet, because the bungalow, though it's only a couple of blocks from what appeared to be the Rodeo Drive of Bali, was untouched by traffic noise or any other kind of noise from the teeming tourist crowd. Yes, it was very much a "Balinese experience" nestled among the local population, with all of it's authentic charms. Oh, yeah. I almost forgot about Matt. Sorry, Matt. Though I didn't have the opportunity to meet him, we exchanged many emails and he was not only quick to respond to any question, but was also very sweet and thoughtful. A sterling gentleman. If I should ever return to Seminyak, I would hope to once again stay at Barrida Bungalow. It was extraordinary.
It was a great pleasure to stay in your house, i felt like a princess in her castle! Many thanks for having me and being so helpful during my entire stay! Your house has the perfect location in the heart of Seminyak but yet in a peaceful surrounding, away from the busy streets. Your neighbours are truly friendly people and gave me a welcoming feeling. I also want to thank Inge and Kadek for making my stay easy, relaxed and perfect!
I would definitely recommend your house to other people, it's just wonderful!
Thank you again for having me in your house!
Perfect location. Very accommodating. Clean. Free Laundry. Great Price. I lived in Bali in different spots over the past 7 years, and I was amazed to find such a great place at such a great price. Highly Recommended. Thanks Kadek, Inge and Matt!
I really had a great time staying at Matt's place. Partly this was because I liked the space itself. It is comfortable and really conveniently located next to the Seminyak Language School. Partly this was because Matt and I had such a good time together. He wasn't just a host, but a friend. We hung out almost everyday and are still in touch via email. Great guy.
Stay there with my girlfriend. We loved the place so much. It is so close to Bintang Supermarket in Seminyak. Kadek and Inge have been extremely helpful in helping us going around Bali. We will sure come back to this place if we come to Bali again.
This was truly an authentic Bali experience. Great location close to everything in Seminyak, though nestled down a winding side-street - lots of local neighbors :) This is a budget accommodation, though perfectly suited for what I needed. Matt's staff were extremely helpful and kind. My only advice is if your out partying, make sure to write down the location and bring a map :)
The reservation was canceled 49 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Great location, very central, just a short walk to the Bintang and all the shops. Lovely accomodation, the doorway is beautiful with intricate wooden carvings. The room is neat, has aircon, good showers with hot water and is kept clean.
Nice quiet location, away from the noise.
Matt is a welcoming host and is always ready to help with any questions you may have.
