About This Listing
House of Vera is located on the quite street of Jalan Merak Celuk Buluh in Lovina, Nothern Bali. This part of the island is ideal to know real Bali with its authentic life and only a few tourists at a time. Lovina is the only place in Bali where you can see dolphins jumping and playing in the open sea.
The house is just 2 minutes walking to the main street and 7 minutes to the beach and to all the major restaurants on Jalan Laviana; there you can find many small shops which are serving decent food. It's 5 minutes by motorbike to the center of Lovina.
Our house is very clean, the owner is very friendly and speaks sufficient English.
It is rented out to only one party at a time, be it for one room or two rooms which can accommodate up to four people comfortably. As a guest you will have full use of the house which includes a big dining room, living room, kitchen and the front yard with a garden.
It’s Very suitable for family with kids, but also nice for a couple who just want to relax and be away from the noise. We have 2 dogs named Scooby (a golden retriever) and Igo (a Balinese dog). They are very lovely, well groomed and safe dogs.
Just be there and enjoy your holiday with us.

Great deal. Vera is super sweet and helpful. Her English is great (despite what she may say). She provides free bikes, which were very useful (although biking on the main road is incredibly treacherous and a bit of an adventure). And her banana pancakes were very good. The dogs and cat are very friendly and adorable. There's a lot of space, with two bedrooms and a large kitchen and living room. The garden is gorgeous. The Bed was comfortable and there were hot showers. There were some bug issues but, hey, it's Bali. You can't really escape that. There's no lock box but there is a cupboard in the bedroom that has a lock and key so you can safely stow valuables. Vera does live in a room joined to the house and is there most, if not all, the time. So if you're looking for a more hotel like, private experience this isn't it. If you want more of a home stay experience it's great, though.
The location is really close to the beach (about a 5-10 min walk/2 min bike ride) and fairly close to Lovina (20 min walk). There are lots of warungs and restaurants near by. We ate at Warung 9 (I think)that was a little hole in the wall but had excellent Indonesian food (the best we had in Bali).
Our stay at this house was exactly what we expected. A beautiful large house with a large garden in front. The host lives nextdoor with 3 super amazing and sweet dogs and one cat that just suddenly appear and dissappear. The house is large with several bedrooms, a huge bathroom and a kitchen and a livingroom. Not to mention a terrace with the view over the garden.
Breakfast is freshly made and very nice while eating it on the terrace of the house with the view over the garden and the silence of the surrounding. Sometimes a rooster makes a sound or a dog barks. But you are close to Lovina centre but far from the main road.
That was also a good thing about this house. Its location, everything is close by and especially with the bicycles that you can borrow at anytime. To the beach, waterfalls, Singaraja, hot springs etc.
In conclusion. We very much liked our stay here and definitely recommend to stay here when discovering the less touristic northern parts of Bali.
If you come to Lovina, you should go to Vera - because for sure there wouldn't be a better option! Vera is the most friendly and hosbitable person you can find. She helped us so much with everything. We were perfectly introduced to our surrounding and she will provide you with any information you need.
As we travelled with our 5 year old daughter, it is a very safe place - and everbody enjoyed the lovely dogs and sitting in the beautiful garden,watching the birds and butterflies go by...
And not to forget about the tasty banana pancakes she made for us every morning... ;-)
As we moved on with our journey we still miss this place, which was our home away from home for 12 marvelous days!
Very special greetings from Fiona to you, Vera - and Maxi, of course...
Vera was a wonderful, warm and friendly host and the apartment made for a great base in Lovina, tucked away from the main road with peace and quiet. Vera helped us organize a sunrise dolphin trip, which was a highlight of the trip. The dogs were also very friendly and nice to be around. The apartment was clean and spacious, and the bed and A/C made for a comfortable sleep. Thumbs up!
Vera is a lovely host and we had really cozy stay at her villa in Lovina. Her house is located pretty close to the beach, though Lovina beach doesn't have much to offer anyway. This place is also close to some important eateries and bars around Lovina like Cantin 21 etc.
Her villa is huge and it has 3 rooms, and a big lobby with kitchen. The room was cozy and the kitchen had most utensils for cooking. Vera also has 2 bicycles which you can use anytime you (website hidden) top it all, she also has 3 adorable dogs (Maxi, Scooby and Igo) and me and my wife spent a good amount of time playing with them and feeding them watermelon, pancakes etc. Oh, and did I mention that this villa has a ridiculously huge bathroom with a tub to add to the cheap luxury available here! When in Lovina, if you cannot lavish, this is the place to stay :)
Vera is a wonderful welcoming lady who lives in the apartment next door to the airbnb villa. She is an excellent hostess and organized a massage at home for my wife and I and also recommended places to eat around the town. She even took us on a tour of the hotsprings and the Buddhist temple just out of town. Lovely lady, lovely dogs and a wonderful house. Good location, close to everything. She also organized a motorbike for us at a good price so that we could explore.
