Living in the Netherlands, I own together with my wife a furniture and lighting shop in the Netherlands. And we love it to stay several times a year in our villa on Bali, and enjoy the rest here in this part of Bali.
Thank you for the compliments, it was an honor for me and our staff to be your host.
About your suggestion for the kayaks I think it is a great idea, next time when I'm on Bali I will inform about where to buy and how to storage at the villa.
Thanks for the complements about our staff and the villa.
About the beaches on Bali, a lot beaches on Bali are not clean in the rain season, also in the south of Bali! This is basically due to the Indonesian government, because they must take care of that, and let know that especially the local Balinese people do not throw trash into the rivers of Bali, because all rivers are ending into the sea!
That we have black beaches in the north of Bali has to do with the volcanic history of Bali.
