The Space

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 bathroom, 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.

  • 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

  • I stayed at the Wooden House for 3 days and nights. I wish I could have stayed forever!
    My husband and I were there for the first half of our honeymoon. Putu made us a delicious breakfast every morning and was extremely helpful! She always greeted us with fresh juice and tidied up after us.
    We met Benjamin when we arrived. He provided us with a map, other useful information, a local phone and a scooter.
    And Dolla, Benjamin's assistant, was extremely helpful! She checked in on us from time to time and arranged a driver to pick us up when we needed.
    The house is as pictured - stunning and romantic! The pool sits under the stars, the neighborhood was very quiet and friendly, and the yard is beautifully landscaped.
    I would not hesitate to stay again!

  • We had an amazing time stayed at Villa Camin during our stayed in October 2013, everything just perfect.This time is our first Holiday with our daughter(16 Months old) and we had no Problem at all even at the beginning we were worry about the open pool (there is no pool fence but Benjamin and his Team could arrange for you with additional fees) but for us we decided not to and everything just fine.Villa Camini really child friendly and have a big space for our daughter to Play. So for traveler with children go ahead to booked this Villa.

    The Villa it self really beautiful and unique,with an open space style, the master bedroom just perfect with really comfortable big bed,the second bedroom with Joglo style and outdoor bathrooms also amazing. The living room, kitchen,daybed, garden and pool are perfect as shown as in the Picture. The wifi also work pefectly.
    The Host Benjamin, Dola ( Benjamin assistant), Siti (the household assistant), Komang (The Gardener) and Wayan ( The Driver) gave us such an excellent experience. Thank you for all of you to make our stayed so comfortable and amazing.
    Specially thanks for Siti who always kyeep the Villa clean and cooked us breakfast, she is so lovely and always sweet to my daughter. Even my daughter always cry if time Siti have to go home. :)

    It is easy to order taxi and delivery Food,most of the time we ordered food from the warung sobat and Tratoria pizzaria when we are too lazy to dine out.
    If you feel like to have the Balinese Massage at the Villa then you can ask Dola to arrange it for you.
    Try out the Nirvana bar and Resto in Seminyak..they really will give you the best Service.. specially the staffs all love babies ;)
    And if you look for some Souvenirs to bring back home, go to Krisna Souvenir at Sunset Road, it is fixed Price and huge store, we were more comfortable to shop there for some Balinese Souvenir to give to friends and family.

    It was hard on our last day at Camini, because this Villa really made us feel like at home.. definitely we will come back on our next trip to Bali in the future.. and we did recommend this Villa to our friends and Family.!!

    Thanks again for Benjamin and his Team.!! :)

  • This is the perfect place to stay in Bali.

    Despite being super centraly located (right on the most wanted area of Bali - Seminyak), the location of this paradise house makes it really quiet and trully paradisiac.

    The place ... well ... if the pictures on the house profile on the airbnb are wonderfull, there is even better!

    This is a place that we will never forget in our lives ... and hopefully we will return! :)

  • My family and a friend had a wonderful stay at Villa Camini. It is a great open plan villa that takes full advantage of the warm weather there.

    We were welcomed by Benjamin who gave us a welcoming juice and also provided as with a local mobile phone that proved very useful. The internet was a surprisingly good connection, and the speaker allowed us to listen to appropriate holiday tunes while lounging in the pool. Our 2 year old son loved the place as well, with the pool being an absolute highlight.

    Everyone has written rave reviews about Putu, and they are well deserved. She cooked us breakfast each day (we paid for the ingredients) and she makes an awesome omelette as well as pancakes. I didn’t think I would, but I was very happy giving her money to buy whatever we needed for the villa (including Bingtang!) - you don’t go on holidays to go to the supermarket after all! She also arranged the laundering of our clothes at a bargain price. Her lovely personality only made a great location even better.

    It’s very easy to get food delivered, for most places you only need to mention Villa Camini. We also used a driver that was recommended (and picked us up from the airport) for a day trip to the rice paddies and a temple for $60. Very comfortable and highly recommended. It’s also not difficult to order a taxi, or get one from the street. You are about 5-10 minutes from a huge variety of shopping and restaurants/bars. Whilst not easily walkable, it’s still very accessible.

    We very much plan to come back and stay here again - but this time for a month!

  • fantastic! well organised, beautiful villa, transfers organised without any problem. Dolla, Benjamins assistant very helpfull and friendly as was Putu. Can not fault any part of our stay and would strongly recomend benjamin and villa camini, a refuge to relax in!
    we also stayed one night in Villa Bambu on the same gang, basic but comfortable and fantastic value for money!

  • Our stay at the Wooden House (Villa Camini) was absolutely amazing! It was a little difficult to find at first, but once we figured it out, it was so easy.

    The Wooden House is just outside of all of Kuta and Seminyak's hustle and bustle which worked out great for us. We were able to get into the city or to the beaches whenever we wanted and could easily get to the Bukit Peninsula or Tanah Lot, too. We were always able to find taxis whenever we needed them. The staff was great, too. They made us breakfast everyday and even went to the store to pick up groceries for us so we could spend our time exploring Bali rather than running errands and stocking the refrigerator.

    I should also mention that the villa was huge! My boyfriend and I stayed there with another couple and it was just right for all of us. We loved having a common area to hang out as well as separated bedrooms.

  • We loved the villa and all the people involved. Made us feel very much at home. What a fantastic place. Thanks, we will definitely come back. And already recommended this house to our friends and family. Lots of xxxxx from our baby Moos to Putu!

  • Villa Camini is very spacious, well equiped, great beds and nice garden. Close to Seminyak but not too noisy. Great maid and Benjamin was very responsive to any requests.

  • My wife and I had the pleasure of spending our honeymoon as Benjamin's guests at Villa Camini. Our experience there was outrageously beautiful. The villa is atmospheric, comfortable, secluded and accessible; it is one of the most soulful and fun places we have stayed in all of our travels.

    Our every expectation and request was accommodated with speed and grace and the lovely Putu brightened each day with breakfast, coffee, a clean and spotless playground and her warm smile.

    Transport was easily arranged and the proximity to beaches, bars, restaurants, shopping and groceries is excellent.

    Thank you Benjamin, Made and Putu. We are so glad and grateful to have spent such a special time as your guests!
