This is one of only a handful of private homes located along this stretch of Bali's beaches facing the Indian Ocean. Our home is luxurious, yet casually comfortable. The house is filled with light and extremely comfortable. You are within walking distance of the hottest dining and shopping area ("Oberoi") on the island but also within a short drive of traditional villages and rice paddies that have made Bali a world famous destination. Down the beach is a popular surf area and surfing schools (which will pick you up at the house for lessons).
There are 4 bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms plus a loft bedroom with non-adjoining bathroom. All bedrooms are very spacious, have air conditioning and hi thread count sheets & towels. The Upstairs Master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, views of the ocean and an attached study with piano. The kids bedroom has a double bunk bed that sleeps 4, a queen sleeper sofa that sleeps another 2, and sea views. The third bedroom upstairs is spacious, has a queen bed and a great ocean view. We use this as a play room for our kids so it has many toys (which can also be removed). The fourth bedroom is the Loft space. This has AC, a flat screen TV & DVD, a King Size bed and private balcony. The fifth bedroom is the Downstairs Master Suite: a front sitting room with king pull out sofa (European - very comfortable), a bedroom area with king sized bed, a dressing area with a window seat that can double as a single bed. There is a flat screen tv & dvd player. This suite has an ensuite bathroom with skylight, shower and separate tub. (When we are living in the house, this suite is where our guests stay and it is more than ample for a family of 5 with young kids).
The house has many common spaces for lounging and relaxing. On the second floor, there is an indoor air conditioned great room with oversized leather couches and a dining area that seats 10-12. There is also an indoor air conditioned TV room and an air-conditioned study with piano. The second level outdoor terrace is covered, has a large dining table as well as lounge seating with an amazing ocean view and ping pong table. An additional uncovered deck offers great sunset views and star gazing.
The first level is all open air with the exception of the downstairs guest suite. There is a large central kitchen with a huge island (the center of the downstairs!), a dining space, an open living room and a covered lounge area by the pool. The swimming pool has a separated shallow section for young kids and a larger deeper section for adults and older kids. There is a small yard in front of the house with a wooden swing set for kids.
In the drive area there is half pipe (skateboarding) and basketball hoop. We have bikes and scooters and any amount of balls and bats....
There is a full time staff (1 housekeeper, 1 gardener) that can clean daily, assit with child care, do all your errands and food shopping and do all laundry.
