Have a safe trip and WELCOME TO BALI!
1- Lock your private room and property doors when out and about.
2- Please be respetcful of the tenants in the 2 other rooms. You all share a bathroom and a kitchen and 2 fridges.
3- Hang out with your roomies! Harmony and peace between my tenants is ESSENTIAL to a more fun-filled stay at my place.
4- It is customary and hygeniec to remove your shoes before stepping into the home.
5- Bali experiences many sewage back-up issues. It is also customary to throw your used toilet paper in the trash bin provided.
6- For those tenants staying longer than a week, you may be required by the Village Chief to fill out a registration form (like a hotel) for our row of villas. This initiative came into affect to ensure that if something were to happen (tsunami or other), your embassy will be made aware of your possible whereabouts.
Dewi was such a great host aand the room was very comfortable and very close to the main road, 20 minutes walking to the beach which was so beautiful. There were lots if restaurants and bars nearby.
Had a nice here. Dewi was so friendly and helpful. The place itself is good value for the area, but a little tatty in places. The shared bathroom is also a bit grimy, but I'd definitely say this place is great for a no thrills, friendly, safe and convenient stay!
My stay at Ariane's place was great. Ariane communicated well before my arrival and as she was away during my stay, she left me in the capable hands of Nyoman & her friend & neighbour Dewi. When I arrived at the house, Nyoman welcomed me with a big smile, he also kindly organised my airport travel the next day. Dewi then dropped by to check I was ok & we ended up chatting for ages about Bali life & culture. There was another lady staying at the other room in the house, & we ended up chatting about love, religion & everything else over a bottle of wine at Ariane's living room till late in the night. The whole experience reminds me why I love travelling- meeting strangers who become your friends!
My room was clean & tidy. The AC was a saviour in the humid hot climate. The kitchen & bathroom was also clean.
The only factor than dampen my wonderful experience in staying at Ariane's is the noise coming from the bars nearby. Perhaps it was Saturday night, so the music was extra loud; I could hear it in my room even with the air con on & it went on past 3am. I have been warned of the noise but didn't expect it to be so Loud. So please bear this in mind if you're staying in the weekend.
Aside from this I had a lovely stay!
This is my second time staying at Arianne's house and she and Dewi were super helpful as the first time.
We had a great time in seminyak!
Dewi was a great host and gave us valuable recommendations. The location was central but at the same time a bit off the busy "mainroad" and around 10walking min from the beach.
The only suboptimal point was the quite heavy bass of the music of some nearby clubs playing till early in the morning.
A very central place. I feelt well recived and safe during my stay. It was tidy and nice. Good place that i can recomend.
First and foremost, me and my partner feel welcome when Pak Nyoman came picking us up from the airport. We like the very easy access and privacy of the villa. The only complain we have is the extremely loud music from next door hotel comes midnight to the wee hours of the day. Luckily I bring my ear plugs with me whenever I travel but my partner suffered hahaha..

I' (Ariane) m French and lived in Bali since 2007, Indonesia since 2003. I personally am living in another country, but my abode is available and your new (non-live-in) host is Dewi (Balinese), who lives RIGHT next door!
I currently I have 3 available rooms (check the 3 separate listings). My room is/WAS the Master one which is huge and takes up the entire 2nd floor of the villa.
I'm easy-going and not too crazy paranoid about my abode which is being managed by my dearest Dewi. She is available at any time to answer any of your pressing questions.
