The magical Green House is one of 2 units on the same property that make up Bali's Mimba Villa. Quiet, private, and exotic, with 2 twin beds and a lovely pool, it is close to Padangbai and its developing and friendly Hindu-Bali atmosphere.
The GREEN HOUSE is 1 of 2 beautiful Balinese-style modern vacation units on the property, each with air con & hot water that sit beside a traditional "bale" (a Hindu-Bali gazebo for relaxation), next to a 6 meter private pool, right in the middle of a rural banana & coconut field, 5 minutes from Padangbai's famous "White Sand Beach".
The "Green House" has 2 single (twin) beds. (And an extra mattress, if needed, for a 3rd adult). The beds are brand new and comfy. The main living-bedroom in each unit is air conditioned, and there is a separate bathroom (w/ a hot water shower) and a kitchen that has a small frig and simple cookware to prepare meals at the villa.

Guests will have access to the unit(s) they rent and to the entire property. The pool and the property will be shared only when both units are simultaneously rented, which is infrequently. Guests also have access to 2 nearby East Coast public & beautiful beaches. To nearby scuba diving and snorkeling. To the nearby Bali Safari Park. To lots of eco-friendly tourism. To local markets. To almost daily Hindu-Bali ceremonies. And to our local manager, Made, who can arrange for anything your heart desires.
My wife and I live in Los Angeles. So our super knowledgeable and capable manager, Made, handles everything at the Villa.
Often only 1 unit is booked at a time, so there is always peace & privacy.
When both units are booked, the pool is shared.
Padangbai is a still quiet and developing fishing village and ferry hub on the East Coast of Bali. It is not nearly so crowded at the Kuta Beach-Seminyak "strip", yet it still has eco-friendly tourism.
Our Villa is set back down a private road and is surrounded by banana and coconut trees, amidst local Mimba Village. It is secluded, private, and peaceful, yet close enough to get anywhere in the Padangbai area, as well as convenient to get around the entire island.
It is helpful, if not essential, to rent a simple-to-operate motor scooter to get on and off the property conveniently. Made, our manager, can arrange for rental and teach newbies to operate the scooter in 15 minutes. It's fun.
Alternatively, guests can just hang out at the villa and walk to the beaches or to town, or arrange for transport when needed, either to town, or for day (or overnight) trips around the entire island.
Also, small cars will fit down the private, unpaved road.
And buses do arrive in Padangbai from all over the island.
Both overnight & long term stays are available. Long term rentals are particularly suitable for retirees and pensioners.
Our pool may not be suitable for young children who don't swim: no guard rails and no "shallow" end". However, plastic tube/"floaties" can solve the problem.
Our main man and manager/concierge, Made (Ma-Day), can pick you up at the Denpasar international airport ($70), check you in personally at the villa, and get you anything you need at the Villa, any time! He can also be your personal host & tour guide to Balinese life and culture: everything from traditional wedding ceremonies, to Barong ballets & "kecak" monkey chants, to local night markets, to scuba diving & snorkeling, to multi-day trips eco-adventuring to Ubud, Amed, Lovina, and all the other magical places around the island.
We had a a very short stay at the white house. It's secret for sure as the location is really quiet and calm in the middle of the village.
The sideboard was a bit musty and needed good ventilation.
Fantastic place and simply loved it. Was greeted and drove to the villa from the airport by the villa manager - Made. He is a very very courteous and helpful person. He had made sure my every need was met. He came by every morning, to greet me and to check if everything is well and if I have everything I need.
The place was superbly clean. There were some basic toiletries and some utensils for my usage if I wanted to have some meals back at the villa. I totally enjoyed my stay there lounging in the veranda and taking a dip in the pool. Having lunch by the gazebo next to the pool was so serene and beautiful. The neighborhood where the villa is located is quite quiet besides for the sounds of the critters in the forest and plantations. The beds were clean and well kept and there was staff that comes to clean the place each day.
Made also informed me that there are some extra services also offered to the guests of the villa such as a cook to make my meals throughout my stay, scooter services, tour services and etc for a small fee for whichever service I choose.
I rented a scooter from Made to travel to and fro to the beaches, the town and other surrounding areas. The villa is close to the town and you could walk to it if you would like to enjoy the lush greeenery from the villa to the town.
I completely enjoyed my time at Eric & Surya's villa. I had such a relaxing and refreshing time at the villa. Made is an excellent manager which made my trip so much better and I didn't have to worry about anything while I enjoyed my stay. I highly recommend staying here to anyone who wants to have a nice quiet joyful trip staying at a villa that is simply gorgeous and just getting recharged before heading back to the real world. I'm sure you will enjoy your time in the town with locals buzzing around and greeting you with smiles as you engage with them. Its completely different from Kuta where it gets so packed with tourists that you lose the beauty of seeing the way of life in Bali for how it should be seen.
Definitely will be back again.
The room was very nice, and the garden is private and lush. Quiet and peaceful. Far from town or shops.
One major issue is that the property is shown incorrectly on the map! I was planning to walk there, but by chance came across someone that told me it was actually way on the other side of town. That should be corrected asap.
The manager of the place, Made, is a very friendly and helpful guy. The owners do not live in Indonesia, and I would have preferred that to have been said clearly on the description of the room. I was expecting to be able to contact them when I arrived. I was travelling around, and not online much, so I didn't see the email sent with Made's number. It made things a little complicated when I wanted to check in. His number could be stated on the ad so that it can be noted down beforehand.
All in all a nice place to stay.
The first day we where a bit confused because no one met us, apart from the boy who didn't speak English well enough for a sufficient communication. The House is nice and the bedroom was clean, as well as the garden and the swimming pool but when we went to the kitchen we found rubbish from the previous customers in the rubbish bin which was smelling, moreover the fridge was dirty and with some bottles and old food. However, the next morning the boy from the staff cleaned everything. Also the next day we finally met the host and he explained us where to go, what to visit and where to buy the necessary things, and we also rent scooter with him. He was quite friendly with us. The place is fine, apart from the small inconvenience of the first day, we recommend it for having relaxing days far from the noises of the harbor.
