The Space

This is a rare, amazing opportunity that may not come again. This is a beautiful double villa (more below) with a huge pool and enormous, lovely landscaped Balinese grounds.

The total area of the land is 24 are (2400 m2 or over 25,000 sq ft) with a 17 meter pool and outdoor cabana/bathroom/shower, large open-air balé for breakfast or catered lunches or dinners, and groomed grounds, terrace, and Hindu temple.

Your space is offered at an incredible bargain. There is one small, free standing villa in the corner of the property where an upper-management employee lives. She travels often, has a driver, leaves early, comes home late, and rarely uses other facilities. The other, larger villa is divided into two living spaces. Because you have a separate entrance from outside and no shared space, your space falls somewhere between AirBnB's categories: an entire home/apt and a private room. Think of it as a gorgeous private flat in Xanadu.

Entering through your private outdoor sheltered terrace, passing through the separate locked traditional Balinese doorway, your space has a 35 m2 huge bedroom with a classic Balinese outdoor but private and screened-in ensuite bathroom with all modern furnishings. The bedroom has remote-controlled A/C, a large flat-screen HDTV with CATV, a phone, a few tasteful furnishings, and a king-size bed with mosquito net.

At the moment, the adjoining, second space is also available, with all the same amenities and very large walk-in his and her dressing closet and ensuite bathroom.

The space has 24-hour security behind a discreet gate down a safe, clean, mostly well-paved gang right off the main road in Sanur, Jl. Danau Tamblingan. It has a fantastic location on the beach side, just 5-minutes from the ocean (Bali Sea, actually). Bemos and taxicabs (regulated with meters) are just 50 meters away.

Free WiFi, parking, cable HDTV, A/C, hot/cold water, regular mosquito fogging, steps away from Hardy's -- the main shopping center for Sanur with everything you could need. The actual address is better, on the beach side of the main road, but AirBnB for whatever reason shows it on the left side of the main road.

This property will be gone soon, sold to developers of a major hotel chain. Enjoy a stay in majestic setting from another era when Sanur was a little known, sleek vacation spot, yet reside in great comfort with all the modern-day conveniences you would not ordinarily get for twice the price.

  • Scott and Elisabeth were wonderful hosts and their apartment is lovely and clean and has everything you'd need, from fridge to pool! They even left us a fruit plate and some new toiletries to use. The staff were really lovely and when we found a snake outside our room they spent an hour finding it and taking it away even though it was 1am! (Thank you again!) The apartment is near lots of shops and warungs, and it's easy to get to the beach for surfing etc. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it.

  • An oasis of calm! Fabulous villas, right in the middle off the action, with great staff & the most serene of pools.

  • The villa is amazing. Sanur is very touristy intense, and Scott's place provided a much needed oasis. He and his girlfriend are not on site, but remained in easy communication, and the on site help secured me a bicycle, and taxi to the airport. The pool, though it looks chlorine-less, actually has green tiles to integrate with the lotus ponds next to it. The location is literally right in the middle of the restaurants/yoga classes, but back off the main street enough to escape the traffic noise. There really is no reason to stay anywhere else in Sanur! Thank you Scott and Elisabeth!

  • We have stayed for 6 nights at the villa and had a great time! The villa is centrally situated in Sanur, you can easily walk to restaurants, shops and to the beach. The garden and the pool are a highlight: they are really an oasis of peace, you could spend all day relaxing by the pool! The staff of the villa were extremely nice and friendly and they do a great job at keeping tha place impeccably clean. Many thanks to Elisabeth, Scott and all the staff!!

  • I stayed for two weeks in this "garden of eden" at the end of august/beginning of september 2013 and I loved it. This place is beautiful, tranquil, very well kept, has excellent service and a lightning fast and very helpful management! And yes: The place looks and feels exactly as photographed and discribed. A true little paradise. Since its days are apparently numbered: Grab it while it lasts !!!
    Merci vilmal Scott, Elisabeth, and all the staff!!

  • A gemstone in the heart of Sanur, Bali

    We had the pleasure to stay 2 weeks (August 2013) at the described villa and we enjoyed every minute. A stone throw from the city center, but it is a very quiet and great place only a short stroll from the see. The pictures and description do not promise too much. It is as it looks like!!

    If you enjoy a very private and quiet place over a large and crowded hotel but don't wont to miss the room services provident by very friendly and helpful staff this is the place to go for.

    Many thanks to Scott

  • I booked Scott's place in Sanur for my parents. The villa was hard to find, but it is in the perfect location. Just between the convenience of the main road and all the dining and shopping there, and the lovely beach in Sanur. My parents had plenty of space to spread out, and repack their bags for the boat trip they were taking. Thank you to Scott and to Elisabeth for a pleasant stay.
