Hey, I’m Nicola!

I am German and have been living abroad for more than 15 years, moving to Southeast Asia after years in the US and Switzerland. Currently I live in Singapore with my teenage son and work at a Singaporean university as a teacher in biological sciences and scientific writer/editor.

The "Villa @ Seminyak Beach" is my refuge from Singapore city life and I try to come here as often as possible for extended weekends to unwind. If I can't be here myself I am happy to have guests from all over the world enjoying the set-up and location of the villa for perfect tropical holidays next to the beach.

If I find the time I also enjoy Bali's many other beautiful beaches and amazing landscape and scenery as well as the coral reefs and diving opportunities in the wider region, the unique Balinese culture, and the relaxed lifestyle.

The apartment "Bali Studio by the Beach" (the second listing on FlipKey under my name) – which is located on the ground floor of the second house inside the compound (right next to the Villa) – belongs to my business partner Mimo. Mimo, who is living on the second floor upstairs of the apartment, is also an expat who has been living on Bali and in Indonesia for more than ten years and as such can provide a lot of information and advice on the country and its people and culture.

Together with my business partner Mimo I also own a restaurant – Yut'z Place Restaurant, located in 521 Jalan Werkudara in Legian, the next community directly south of Seminyak – in walking distance from the villa. The restaurant with its international cuisine is a meeting point for tourists and expats alike and perfect to cool down from shopping and exploring the area, or for dinner after an afternoon on the beach.

The "Villa @ Seminyak Beach" and "Bali Studio by the Beach" are locally managed by Alit, who is also manager of Yut'z Place Restaurant. As your host on site, Alit will welcome you to the villa when you arrive and will be happy to support you with information about Bali or help with the arrangement of car or motorbike rentals or tours.

I hope you will have a wonderful vacation on Bali — see you there soon!
