Private and Energetic.
A great villa in a brilliant location. Access is very easy once you know the way (collection by Michelle's driver makes this easier the first visit). Lounge room is very spacious, nice and cool with a tiled floor and high ceilings. The bathroom is the same, cool polished concrete walls and a huge mirror for a couple to share comfortably. We did not really use the kitchen but it had all the basic facilities one would expect. The bedroom is a great size, with pitched roof, A/C, fan, balcony and a huge bed it made for a very comfy stay. The plunge pool is fantastic and very private, we spent many hours swimming to cool off, when not down at the beach 200m away. There was even a curious water monitor that swam across the river and climbed our wall to check us out! Kaban was very helpful onsite with any requests, as was Michelle.
Michelle's communication before and during the trip were both outstanding! We arrived at the villa on a rainy night, and had some difficulty finding the place (though taxis we took afterwards didn't have this issue). Letting the taxi driver know to look for Jl Nelayan Batu Bolong (and following the road with the sign for Marys Villa at the fork slightly past BJs burgers) will be useful if you plan to stay here. The beach is steps away - literally walked there every AM! - and the river on the other side of the compound wall is amazingly zen! Perfect for a couples getaway where one of the two (or both) surf, since echo beach is right next door. Lots of restaurants were walkable (5-10 min) and the locals are very friendly and helpful. It wasn't an issue for us, but remember this is close to rice fields and water, so frogs, geckos, mice, spiders and birds are plentiful. Skittish folks might want to consider this! Kaban was very helpful, always smiling, and a great value add. We'd definitely recommend this villa and stay here again. Amazing floor plan too!
My husband and I spent three lovely nights in Michelle's guest house. It's a beautiful space and is perfect for a romantic getaway. We really enjoyed Canggu, which is much more mellow than Seminyak (this is not the spot for you if you're looking to party all night :-P). Good surfing and plenty of restaurants close by. Michelle was extremely helpful- she arranged for airport pickup and a driver to take us up to Amed.
We loved this place! It's a perfect couples retreat, a secluded villa with its own pool and all amenities and for a great price in a great location! The beach is only a walk away and has good access to the surf. It has great security, fast wifi and Michelle and her husband were extremely welcoming and helpful! Would definitely recommend and we'll be coming back here next time!
The Hidden River Villa Canggu was perfect for our stay in Bali. If your not sure which villa to stay at, choose this one. Secluded, private, spacious, beautiful. and so close to the beach. Everything we could have needed was already thought of by our host. Staying at this boutique villa topped of one of the most memorable holidays we have ever had. We'll be recommending this place to our friends and are hoping to return some day ourselves to experience it all over again. Thank You.
Great little place. Perfect for couples! River can be seen right out of your bedroom window and the beach is just 200 steps away. Beds are huge and very comfortable. Michelle was friendly and easy to communicate with. Would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in Canggu.
Amazing villa with an incredible location that is walking distance to the beach. Also close to great restaurants. And it's secluded enough to give you the peace you need. Only downside was the construction taking place next door which started at 730/8am each day. Otherwise an amazing experience!
