About this listing
Enjoy your fabulous stay at this wooden house for less!
Villa Camini is located just 5 minutes from Batubelig Beach, set off down an alleyway that is home to locals and foreigners alike. These streets, swabbed in plant life, offer a balance of nature and those modern fixings. When the beach bar crowd head seaward to party however, the 'hood changes masks. Known for parties, fine dining, or just relaxing and unwinding, Mozaic Beach Club is the big name in the neighborhood - while the renowned Kudeta, Potato Head, and W Hotels are only a 7-minute trip down the road. Situated just 15 minutes from Seminyak Village – in all its wild diversity - Villa Camini is simply...your most comfortable in-between.
Passed the vintage appearance and campy cottage, Camini's heart is bold art-deco - in keeping with the playfulness of this stunning island. After sundown, colored lights tracing the interiors, the black-white tiled floor - with the pool lit up, Camini could remind one of Miami. It's got designs to go along with anything on your play list.
With 2 air-conditioned bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and an extra toilet, the villa hosts with room to spare. Your second bedroom is actually a 'Joglo' - likely one of the sweetest cabins you'll have seen – at 15 square meters, with private bathroom, and closed off with a double-pane window. As part of Camini's maid service, a morning visit offers breakfast in bed for the cost of groceries alone (by request). Mineral water is an inclusion you'll come to appreciate during your stay and laundry services are there, if needed. Otherwise, rental vehicles, baby sitters, on-call spa services, pre-arrival shopping runs, and airport transportation are available for your convenience. To top it off, we'll provide a mobile phone - yours to use - an essential, when in Bali.
While Mozaic Beach Club - and restaurants like Warung Sobat and Naughty Nuri's – bring the crowds to Batubelig Village, for many local families, this neighborhood is home. Being residential, transportation may need some planning (unless you're renting, of course). While taxi pick up can easily be arranged, most guidebooks mention Batubelig's taxi stand (right up the road from the beach) as an option, which may require a little bartering. Local secrets and secluded beaches are not far, and for dinner, a short taxi ride to nearby Canggu Village opens your options to the Mediterranean Trattoria, Japanese Suksme Sushi Bar, Indotopia, and more.
On first walk through, chefs note the ample counter tops and fully-equipped kitchen - though their diners might not make it far past an elegant bar, big enough for some warm soirees. Not your thing? Apart from the 32'inch TV with cable and a movie library, the private pool is there to entertain and encourage some chilled-out afternoons (FYI: pool fence can be installed for an extra cost of $30/day). Don't forget the 1 double and single day bed – and mosquito nets – in the open area, fitting for 5 or 6 guests. Bringing home some valuables? Your Joglo's closet / dressing room can easily be used for storage – and securely locked up for peace of mind.

Other Things to Note
Due to a construction nearby our villa, we offer half price to guests who would like to stay between February to July 2015. Contact us for further details. Thank you
just don't burn as it is all wood!
Putu will help each morning (except sundays) for cleaning service, breakfast, shopping if necessary.
The villa is beautiful and Benjamin was a very helpful and flexible host and I would absolutely recommend him! Beachwise I would strongly recommend Echobeach wich is far more charming than Kuta beach (go by taxi) :)
The house was indeed very nice and huge. All the workers were very nice and it's very easy to deal with Benjamin and Dolla as well. Putu cooked delicious breakfast and cleaned the house very well.
The location is ok, not far from restaurants and minimart. But it would be best if you could rent a motorbike as the path to the main road was quite dark. Benjamin was very helpful to provide us with the motorbike.
However, the place just wasn't meant for us (Muslim couple) as me and my husband weren't able to enjoy the pool that much. This is because there's a construction next door (3 storey if I'm not mistaken), and the wall was not high enough so that any construction worker was able to see us. But the good thing was that Dolla helped to ask from the worker not to work on the upper floor for the 3 days that we spent there.
thank you for taking the time to write the review. We will work on the small things that we can fix.
Unfortunately, the construction has been going on for the last 4 months, and is almost done. Your booking was the first one back on tracks after i rented it long time, as a much cheaper rate. Once complete, there will be no privacy issue as the neighbors assured me and after i inspected the site. I did informed you beforehand however of exactly what was going on, which is why you paid half price for your 3 day stay and we had a deal that you could move to better villa on day 2... but you choose to stay.
the location of the villa is in a residential alley, it is 200m long and not so dark either as there are houses all along.
We had a fantastic stay in Bali! The villa is centrally located near Seminyak and quite spacious, with friendly and helpful staff. There was a construction nearby, so Benjamin kindly offered to move us to an equally nice yet quieter villa just behind. It was very easy to get around, thanks to taxi pickups. The driver that Benjamin help arranged, Wayan was extremely helpful and showed us around Ubud. I'd definitely consider staying here again.
Staying at Villa Camini was a joy from start to finish. We had 3 weeks there and the minute we arrived, it felt like home. The villa is spacious, really well furnished and beautifully lit. The pool is perfect for cooling off and the garden is stunning. The bed (main bedroom) is, I think, the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and the whole villa is incredibly peaceful being set down a small gang (street) with some lovely local neighbours, tucked out of the way from the busy Kerobokan road. Dolla was there to greet us on our first day, giving us a pay as you go cell phone to use which was fab for restaurant reservations and calling taxis. Dolla was really easy to to communicate with and always there at the end of the phone if we had any questions. We took Bluebird taxis everywhere! It made life so easy! I would recommend doing this unless you are totally confident on a scooter. The rules of the road in Bali are fast and loose. Putu is the wonderful ray of sunshine who comes to the villa every day (apart from Sundays) to make breakfast and clean the villa from top to bottom. She organised our laundry, shopped for groceries and made the whole stay so comfortable and relaxing. She is an awesome cook - her Nasi Goreng for breakfast is delicious! The lovely gardener also comes every day to keep everything looking immaculate. We sadly didn't meet Benjamin as he was away during our stay, but he was super responsive and really helpful every step of the way with our booking. When we return to Bali, we will definitely be contacting Benjamin again to book a villa - he clearly knows how to create a space that is lovely to hang out in and ensure you have the most relaxing and easy time.
Super séjour à la villa Camini ! Située dans une ruelle au calme, cette villa offre toute les options pour profiter au maximum de la vie et du climat De Bali. Notre hôte Benjamin s'est montré très réactif et volontaire pour nous organiser les déplacements dans Bali. Merci a Putu également pour sa gentillesse et son aide quotidienne. Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de ces vacances.
We simply loved to stay in Benjamins house in Seminyak. We stayed for 4 days, and Benjamin and his staff did everything they could to make our stay just perfect. We felt like home, was served a wonderful breakfast everyday and really did not feel like leaving the house at all. We would love to come back 3 Sincerely from Vibekke and rest of the family
