About this listing
Temple Hill Grand Residences achieves a balance of luxury, comfort and style. You will be staying with us (Victoria and Scott) in our home - villa Karana with the ocean view and just 10-minute walk to the beach and famous Jimbaran's seafood restaurants. The villa has three private rooms in addition to our own that all overlook the private pool. The rooms are designed as master bedrooms, each with a new queen sized 4 poster bed and full ensuite. The villa has a fully equipped shared kitchen, lounge, media and dance room. If you are feeling lazy we have 2 lovely staff that can make the bed and clean your room.
The villa is ideally positioned for those travelers who want to spoil themselves for a few days before or after a long flight. We can help with transport from the airport (just 15 mins away) and there is no problem with a late checkout if you have an evening flight. We can assist with English, Russian and Indonesian. We can also offer surfing lessons (Victoria has a surf school), tours around Bali and help renting cars or scooters.
The rooms are usually $98 USD per night (single or couple). We offer a discounted rate of $260 USD per night if you book all 3 rooms. (Smaller villas in Temple Hill offer rooms for $200 per night). Transfers to and from the airport are $15 USD each way paid directly to the driver for a minivan that can carry up to 6 guests (little tight with 6 people if you have a lot of luggage). The Temple Hill complex has its own clean water reserve with good pressure and a reliable power supply. We have cooled filtered drinking water available for guests.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
Given we are sharing our home, we simply request that you respect us, our house and other guests.
We had a wonderful time staying with Scott and Victoria, who were excellent hosts and very welcoming. The villa was beautiful and spacious as described. The location is only a short distance from the beach. higjky recommended!
This is our first use of Airbnb and if Scott and Victoria's place is an example of the standard of properties we will certainly be making full use of Airbnb in the future. The location is good, away from the noise of the beach area - but less than a 10 minute walk away. The property sits on Temple Hill with good views of the beach and the surrounding countryside. So impressed were we with the accomodation that we spent most of our days there just relaxing by the excellent pool and drifting off to sleep with the sound of the birds. We were the only ones staying at the property (other than Scott and Victoria) and so it felt that we had rented the whole villa. In fact so accomodating where Scott and Victoria that we felt we were the owners and they were the guests - Scott once asking if we would mind if he could use his own pool! The 2 maids at the property were extremely helpful and Victoria and Scott's driver, Kertut, who took us to and from the airport and who we used for a couple of day trips was a very pleasant informative guide. Scott and Victoria were also very helpful friendly people and always available to answer questions regarding directions, places to visit and recommended restaurants. To the local restaurants in the information pack they provided we would add Fat Chows just at the entrance to the complex, approx. 5 minute walk away.
In summary an excellent place to stay with superb owners which we wouldn't hesitate to use again.
It was lovely staying at Scott and Victoria's place. It is just as beautiful as it is in the photos and the bnb is run very smoothly. Would love to stay here again in the future!
Victoria and Scott are wonderful hosts. They are very warm and make you feel at home .Their place is very much the photographs in their site. They have paid so much attention to details that they have a manual for every guest ,telling you about their house and the nearby eating places , the beach and it includes a map to reach there.The house is in a quiet neighbourhood ,a gated community with security (website hidden) is only a short distance from the town centre, and there are a lot of restaurants close by and the Jimbaran bay is just 10 minutes walk.The house is very clean and tidy with great interiors,and you have access to the whole house except to their private space. The pool is big and well maintained. You just need to ask and they are there willing to help you. The two local girls , Rami and Liggi are very pleasant and always keeping the place spotless.
Overall it was a great stay and would anytime recommend it to others.
Bali is more like my second home, however never have I thought of living in Jimbaran neighbourhood because I'm not into surfing which Jimbaran is famous of.
I'm very glad and blessed for making one of the best choices this time - picking Scott & Vic's place! Their place was so quiet and peaceful, clean and tidy. The room, bed, bathroom were well kept and we didn't feel like going out sometimes =)
Scott & Vic, the helpers up to the guards of the residence were helpful, friendly and warm - how I wish I could stay longer there!
Restaurants are within walking distance, some're just next door and they do delivery too!
You can walk down to Jimbaran Corner, a neighbourhood mall for some good food as well. My pick is Grocer & Grinds! There's also a Bamboo Spa by Loccitane in the mall - splendid interior and great service =) If you prefer something not too high end, there's also a little spa called Opium down the road.
I've enjoyed my stay and if you plan to live in Jimbaran, book this place!
It's impossible to describe how gorgeous this villa is. It's spacious, luxurious, beautifully maintained and gorgeously appointed. It's clean and open and the pool is unreal. We spent entire days forgoing an adventure around Bali just to lounge around the villa. Scott and Victoria were amazing hosts-- although they weren't at the villa when we were, and we missed meeting them, they quickly and thoroughly responded to every question over email. We are already trying to figure out how and when we can come back to this place :)
Fantastic vill and hosts. We have been to Bali numerous times but this was one of the best trips due to the great rooms, staff and insights of island life from Scott. The day with the driver exploring 4 beaches was great too. Book now!
