Welcome to Dock of The Bay! We are Via and Joseph, your hosts. :-)
*Laid back, quiet, chill
*Heart of Sanur - 5 minutes to the beach, 5 minutes by bike to Hyatt Reef or Baby Barrels surfing, 30 seconds to the supermarket, restos, shops and everything Sanur
*Local flavor, good vibes
We've been in Bali for over a year now. I'm from Jakarta and Joseph is from California. We just moved to a full Balinese style house with 3 rooms in the absolute middle of Sanur, 5 minutes walking from the beach. The house is set back from the road so even though we're in the middle of the action, it's very quiet here and you can't hear the road. Occasionally we get live jazz from the restaurant next door. We like it. :-)
When you stay here, this is your house, and you are our housemates. That's how we roll. :-)
We are 5 minutes by motorbike from some of the most best and emptiest beaches and surf breaks around. We are also right in the middle of the Sanur scene near about 100 restaurants, spas, the supermarket, and whatever else you might be looking for.
Two of the rooms have their own full private bathrooms with hot water and a separate key. Both rooms have ready-to-sleep beds of course!
Both rooms have hot water. One has air conditioning. The non-aircon room can be cheaper, especially for long stays, so ask us about that if that's more your style.
The whole house has a nice little garden area that we like to hang out in, a nice Balinese-style patio, and a full kitchen that is available to all guests.
We are about 500 meters/5 minutes walking to a very quiet beach, relatively undeveloped, where you won't find thousands of sun bathers and restaurants and offers for massages. It's pretty much just calm, swimmable water, peaceful views, and a few local noodle vendors. The beach is an east coast -- sunrises are fantastic.
Also literally 10 seconds from the supermarket, and right in the middle of Sanur restaurants, shops etc. Public transport passes right in front of the house, and this is prime bike territory. It is very very easy to get around from here.
Our house is a great place for relaxed travellers. We are just two friendly people with day jobs who host travellers for fun in our spare time. We just can't match the level of service you'll get in a full on hotel! That's how we keep the price so low! If you're looking for clean, friendly, and local near the beach and in the center of the action in Sanur, then we are a good fit.
We do it a little to help with the rent, but we also do it for the experience and to meet great people. We are just two people with a house -- not a for profit guest house! Dock of the Bay is named after Joseph's hometown in California. And of course, the late great Otis Redding. :-) Come hang out with us!
Via is an awesome and absolutely friendly host and friend :)! The room is clean and very nice! I realy enjoyed the time at vias house, i felt comfortable and more than welcome there. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk to the beach and everything you need is in the neighbourhood. I recommend this place, just book it ;)
Everything was perfect! The room is clean and accurate and cosy. The beach is really close - only 5-7 minutes walking and very beautiful and calm - very good for swimming! Shops, restaurantes and tour agencies are close also. I liked Sanur area more than Kuta as it is not so noisy and not so crowded. And finally about Via :-) : So so nice and helpful girl!!! Dear Via, thank you for your assistance! I hope to see you again some day!!!
Really enjoyed our stay :) Great price, very cozy, close to beach, restaurants and convenience store..... Joseph and Via are extremely friendly and hospitable. Highly recommended.
This place is located in a great location of Sanur, surrounded by restaurants, bars, ATMs in walking distance. We stayed in the A/C room which had some issues: unreliable wifi (the neighbor restaurants wifi which was on-off, difficult to get any work or emails done), the toilet has no door (which is really awkward if not sharing the room with someone you're comfortable with), the sink and shower area is not the cleanest. Jospeh and Via are super nice and helpful. So if you don't care too much about the wifi and toilet/shower situation, then this place is a good inexpensive option. We actually left 2 days early to enjoy the Gili Islands instead.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour. Nous sommes rester 12 jours, l'hôte est sympa, l'endroit est très bien.
Sanur est une ville pleine de touriste, avec plus de 100 restaurant donc l'odeur de riz y est permanente.
La maison est à cité du "Retro restaurant", l'un des meilleur restaurant. La description faite par l'hôte est parfaitement correcte.
Le seul inconvénient est l'humidité dans la chambre, qui laisse une odeur sinon je recommande cette chambre car tres bien située et pas cher.
Via und Joseph sind einfach wunderbar. Ich durfte in ihrem kleinen, tropischen Garten gärtnern, konnte mit Joseph über die Indonesi-sche Sprache diskutieren. Die Lage vom Haus ist natürlich ideal im Zentrum von Sanur. Es war ein unkomplizierter, super Aufenthalt, wie eine Familie. Es waren unvergessliche Tage. Natürlich ist ein Balinesisches Haus kein Fünfsternehotel.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
