About This Listing
This lovely house in Candidasa is located at a small bungalow park wich includes a swimming pool and is only a few steps away from the sea.
There are a couple of really nice restaurants in the area where you can easily walk to. If you like to go snorkeling, diving, swimming and/or fishing, this is the place to be! There are a few special attractions nearby the house. The lovely but mostly rare white beach, two famous water palaces where a real king used to live and Amed, the famous and beautiful diving spot, is only 5 to 10 minutes away from the house.
The house comes with WIFI, airconditioning, a parking spot in front of the park and a housekeeper. If you have any special requests like a taxi service or grocery shoppings, I can ask the staff to help you realize that.
I can arrange a pick-up service from the airport with my driver Podol for only 400.000 Rupiah, to pay directly to the driver, at any time. Just let me know at what time you will be arriving and he will be there driving you to the house.
Candidasa is located nearby Padang Bay where you can take a fairy to Lombok and explore more of Indonesia.
Last but not least, only 4 km from Canidasa there is the lovely and old village of Tanganan. The inhabitants of Tenganan are Bali Aga. They live according to the old rules of animism. Tenganan is surrounded by a fortress from the eleventh century.

We hebben gedurende vier weken genoten van het eenvoudige en gezellig ingerichte huisje in de compound met vriendelijke mensen.
Door de beheerster (assistent priester) meegenomen naar lokale ceremonie wat een hele belevenis was.
Candidasa met z'n vele leuke en goede restaurants is aan te bevelen voor een ieder die dichtbij de lokale bevolking wil zijn en zo de cultuur wil mee maken.
We stayed in this apartment for 19 days, while we never met Harrij he was very quick to reply to any e-mails sent and helpful in arranging an airport pickup. The driver (Podol) he recommends is trust worthy a good driver an excellent guide for the Island. The condo is in a small complex (name of complex is Catra) where the majority if not all the condos are owned by Dutch people whom only visit a few times a year. There is a small restaurant that serves decent tasting food, a small but clean pool and some beautiful sunsets. It is quiet and I had no trouble sleeping at nights. The complex is managed by the same people that run the restaurant. It is the manager Wayan and his wife that we dealt if we required help, information, to order food or the 19 liter bottles of water, they were extremely nice and helpful. The beach in front of the complex did have garbage on it; however we did go snorkeling and there were a fair number of fish, eels and squid to be seen and some rough looking coral. The condo has a small fridge, a single hot plate and a hot water dispenser for tea or coffee, it also had daily housekeeping, so I never had to make a bed. There is a hotel next door with a very nice pool that we used quite a few times, you just have to eat or drink there. They will even give you towels to use. I would definitely recommend staying in Harrij’s condo.
Nous avons passé une semaine très sympa avec mes deux amis dans cette petite villa/appartement. Harrij n'était pas sur place mais "Ketu" qui s'occupe du petit restaurant "Catra" situé dans l'ensemble des villas nous a très bien accueilli. D'ailleurs ce restaurant est très simple mais vraiment bon! Concernant la petite villa, elle correspond bien aux photos. 2 chambres agréables, une jolie petite salle de bain, un salon, une petite cuisine (pas grand chose pour cuisiner) ainsi qu'une terrasse.
La piscine n'est pas très agréable et la plage est sale alors nous sommes allés à l'hôtel juste à côté qui a une super piscine. Une chose nous a vraiment déplu: des travaux qui nous ont réveillé tous les jours à 8h du matin alors que nous souhaitions nous reposer. Peut être aurait il été de nous prévenir de ce désagrément. ..
Candidasa est un endroit fort sympathique avec pas mal de restaurants.
nous nous sommes de suite sentis a l'aise , petite villa sympathique, calme, a quelques minutes de marches des petits restos et boutique, sejour tres agreable, personnel tres accueillant et serviable, l'Est de bali merite d'etre visité.., rien a avoir avec le bruit de denpasar kuta et seminyak , tres reposant et tres joli avec les villages pecheurs
Harrij's house was a spacious 2 bdrm with a kitchen and patio, situated right on the coast. He was very responsive and quick to reply to my questions before arriving. The place had hot water, acs in each room, and a water jug dispenser for hot tea or drinking water. This part of the coast is 20 min by car away from the beach, and a body of water from inland made for a bit of rubbish floating around so I didn't swim there nor see others swimming during our stay. The hotel next door had an amazing pool and view so we spent some time lounging there to use the wifi (which didn't work for me on my devices though it did a couple days for my girlfriend). This is a good part of Bali if you are going up to hiking in the rice fields or there is a volcano north a ways. Definitely having transport like a motorbike or car would have made it easier though cabs are available along the street, and nearby restaurants are easy walking distance a few minutes down. Thanks for the place Harrij!
Harrij is a great host, always responsive and trying to help : thank you, Harrij ! The house is a 2 bedrooms beach-house in a private residence with swimming pool (middle size) and a view on the beach (you can't really swim or lye on the beach, because it is quite dirty). It is well equipped, beds are comfortable, you can cook in the small kitchen. As it is not occupied year long, you can expect some mosquitoes. From the small terrace, you have a view on the sea ! We stayed 7 nights and had a great price. The house is near Candidasa (not right in the center, but not very far), which is not a very fancy place, but convenient if you want to mix
beach time (White sand beach) and cultural visits of Bali and don't want to pack all the time. For us, it was perfect, as we just wanted to enjoy the great weather and bring the kids everyday to the beach. You should have a transport, or plan to bargain a taxi. The staff of the private residence can cook you a breakfast, or a dinner at their restaurant, but the food is way better at other places in Candidasa, like Le-Zat, for example. All the places in Candidasa have a free shuttle for dinner : they can pick you up and bring you back for free if you call them.
About the Host, Harrij
I am a very relaxed man with a penchant for Bali, that's why I bought myself a house here. I would love to share this place with you so you can see what I mean.
