About this listing
The magical Green House is one of 2 bungalows that make up Bali's Mimba Villa. Quiet, private, rural, and exotic, with 2 twin beds, AC, hot water, 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 "bungalows" surrounded by a beautiful garden, each with air con, hot water, & wifi. It sits 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 person, adult or child). The beds are clean 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.
We have 2 friendly Balinese staff people who come daily, 1 to clean the property, the other to clean the pool. They will also gladly help with shopping, errands, babysitting, etc. just ask.
You can book the GREEN HOUSE here.
And book the WHITE HOUSE (with a king size bed) here:
If a guest books BOTH UNITS, we offer a 20% DISCOUNT.
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, the "White Sand" Beach and the "Black Sand" beach. Also 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.
Interaction with Guests
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 as 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, take note: only small cars will fit down the private, unpaved road. Check your car's model type with Made, our manager.
And buses do arrive in Padangbai from all over the island.
Other Things to Note
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.
The villa sits amidst the local Mimba Village community, so guests are asked to to treat the villa as their “home". That said, the villa is protected by a gate and guests have complete privacy.
Check in is flexible and check out is at 11 a.m. All communication can be done with the villa's manager, Made Sukanta. Guests are asked to clean up after themselves (otherwise the local critters will be your frequent guests!) - although there is maid service available for cleaning. There is a local doctor in Padangbai, and Made, our manager can help take care of all your needs: shopping, cooking, touring, etc etc. Just ask...
Celluar phones have good reception at the villa. However, there is no wireless internet connection. So guests can buy a data chip for their i-Pad, tablet, or smart phone (about $20). That's what we do when we stay at the Villa so we are CONNECTED to the Internet via smart phone and/or tablet/iPad.
