Interaction with Guests
If I am in Bali ,I live in one of the houses and take care of the guests needs .
I give them as much privacy as they need but sometimes a real friendship has developed with guests,especially with those who come back repeatedly .
It is a rural quiet neighborhood because the street in a dead end street in the country but has some very good restaurants and stores in walking distance
Car ,motorbike or bicycle can be rented at extra cost .
Taxis are readily available as well
Other Things to Note
We have 3 lovely well cared for cats on the compound
To be respectful of other guests living in the compound at the same time
To smoke only outside of the villas
We stayed at Anama's house for a month so it became home for us during our two month stay in Bali.
The house is in a quiet semi rural location, we had a scooter but it's an easy taxi ride into Seminyak or a small walk up to Bali Buda or a supermarket. The location suited us for our long stay as it was nice to come back to after the busyness of town.
The house worked well for us, great well equipped kitchen
The bedroom is large has TV cupboard space and separate walk in robe area and super comfy bed.
The bathroom is tastefully decorated, spacious and has an outdoor shower.
But what really made it was the wonderful pool and the spacious lawn and gardens, perfectly orientated to catch the sun and breezes all day! We met Anama and became good friends during our stay.
Ketut the driver is available if you need any day trips and has great English.
So a good choice for us for a months stay.
We stayed 3 nights. The place looked exactly like on the pictures. Like a dream. The pool is just great. We did not get to meet Anama but Ketut the driver was very friendly and helpful.
It was rather hot when we were in Bali. Since I am from Switzerland I am not used to this humidity and heat. I had a bit trouble to sleep deeply. But this is me not the place. The place is just great.
Our short 4-day stay was nothing but relaxing and pleasant. We did not get to meet Anama but we were well took care of by Wayan the housekeeper and ketut Mawa the driver. The pool was amazing! We spent a quiet afternoon in the pool and my husband had a good nap floating in it.
What we love most about this place is the space within the compound. The area is shared by three villas therefore when combined you get more space! The other guests were friendly and respect of each other's privacy and we really appreciate that. The plants and ponds are very well kept, where maintenance were carried out everyday. The cats in the compound just make you feel at home.
Everything was perfect except for some minor downsides:- bathtub not working, would not be able to shower if it's pouring outside (shower cubicle is outdoor, which is awesome btw). The never ending ants that would not leave your food alone for even a few minutes. Our villa is directly next to a local house where the family makes noise during some part of the day, and these neighbors are able to peek inside from the fence...
We really enjoyed our stay and also very grateful of a generous and flexible host! Anama let us stay until late on check-out day as our flight was in the evening, and no one was checking in that day.
I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful villa to anyone planning to spend some time in Bali :)
Anama's villa is the most beautiful property I've ever seen! My mother and I loved loved loved our stay here. Anama was very quick at responding to queries. We arrived and left in Bali at awkward times and Anama was very flexible which in turn made me more than happy to be flexible with the next guests that also arrived early on our last day. After we checked out Anama allowed us to stay on the grounds until our late night flight which was brilliant.
The staff were very friendly with a mix of english and non-english speakers all with huge smiles. The room was cleaned every room and the grounds and pool were well maintained. There were a few minor issues but they were resolved quickly and Anama made it up to us very generously.
The other guests staying at the time were really friendly and we hung out with them at the pool and the beach so it felt like a little family.
Only downside is that the villa is a little far from the beach but the taxi isn't too expensive and actually the remoteness made it more peaecful. One tip is to make sure you know the phone number of the villa - as when you call for a taxi they will not come if you cannot provide them with a number.
I didn't have very long in Bali but will return next year and definitely stay in this villa again!
I booked this villa for my family. They stayed for 4 days. And I did at Anama's the other villa for 20 days. I loved not only the villa which I stayed at but also this one. This villa is very cosy and romantic, so it will be perfect to a couple or young parents with a small kid.
Anama's garden were wonderful. It is very large and beautiful. We enjoyed to sit there and relax doing nothing. I can not fotget the night when I watched the stars and talked with my family. It was one of most peaceful night.
The pool was amazing. It was large and deep enough to lap. Every other day pool man came and cleaned the pool.
The staff were nice. They were very kind and helpful. And I felt they tried not to disturb us very much.
Thanks a lot, Anama. We had a great time!
Wir fühlten uns bei Anama sehr gut aufgehoben. Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld war super und während des Aufenthalts kamen wir uns regelrecht umsorgt vor. Das Haus und der Garten sind eine Oase im sonst so lebhaften Süden Balis. Das Team war immer freundlich und mit den Dingen, die Reisende so brauchen stets hilfsbereit. Das Haus und der Pool sind wirklich so schön wie auf den Bildern zu sehen ist.
Wir hatten schon viele Unterkünfte auf Bali und bei Anama wars am schönsten. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen und können das Gästehaus nur empfehlen.
This villa and the entire Bali experience was the best yet for me!. Anama, my host, was wonderful. The place was idyllic, and met all my expectations. It was a perfect transition for me from travels and needing a respite. And yes, like others have said....the pictures don't come close to the beautiful setting and wonderful amenities that await. Recommended to the MAX!

About the Host, Anama
I was born and raised in Germany,and have lived in the USA since 1986.
Since 1990 I have been the owner of a Design and Clothing Company ,which has its manufacturing operation in Bali and its distribution in the USA.
13 years ago I designed and built a beautiful villa close to the famous sunset beach in Bali, Seminyak .
It used to be surrounded by nothing but rice fields back then . Now it is surrounded by beautiful small boutique hotels and other private villas,but nevertheless it has kept its own unique charm.
Seven years ago I have built another compound of three houses and despite all the building boom of the last few years ,I can still enjoy the rice fields around me in this lovely local community,just north of Seminyak. And so can the airbnb guests who are staying here.
