About our home

Our villa is located in quiet peaceful surrounds, 100 metres from scenic Candidasa beach where you can enjoy village life, fishing or snorkelling in beautiful flat clear water protected by a coral reef. The villa is a traditional Balinese design with an open plan with all areas of the house utilizing the outdoor living areas consisting of a pool and luscious Balinese garden. Each bedroom has a king size bed, air-con, overhead fan and bathroom with out door shower, one bathroom also contains an inviting terrazzo bath with garden view, there is a separate WC in living area. The kitchen is well equipped and the lounge dining area is perfect to relax and unwind. The pool is deep and long enough to do laps or to just cool off day or night, we have sun beds and other extensive outdoor furniture to chill out on and soak up the glorious tropical weather of Bali. We have a maid that attends daily at prearranged times to suit and a gardener who comes each afternoon, a driver can be arranged for airport pickup and tours etc. Laundry can be organised daily with same day pickup and drop off. A safe is located on the premises. Meals can be arranged if required at a small cost to meet your needs. Push bike or scooter hire is a short stroll away.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

While visiting Candidasa in Karangasem you will be able to immerse yourself into the vibrancy of Balinese life and observe the dramatic scenery including rice paddies, the formidable mount Agung (volcano) and beaches. Candidasa is a fishing community the people are recognized for their friendly generous nature and this is evident by the slower pace of life that exists in the village and sets the tone for a relaxing holiday. Balinese embrace their Hindu religion and opportunity abundantly occurs to witness one of the many ceremonies either in the streets, beaches or temples. A short drive will take you to traditional markets, dive sites, surf breaks, silversmiths, soap and chocolate factory and the unique Bali Aga Village at Tenganan where ancient tradition and methods are practiced daily including Ikat cloth and basket weaving, or visit heritage sites including temples and palaces. Or if more activity is desirable try mountain bike riding, trekking white water rafting, quad bike riding etc. Candidasa has a vast range of restaurants and warungs some provide music or Balinese dancing, indulge in good food and one of the many cocktails on offer in one of the many restaurants, hotels or resorts lining the street and beach. The more hectic tourist laden areas of Kuta etc is only an hour an half away if you want to have a shopping fix or enjoy the night life; or you might choose to take advantage of the many cheap massage or spa treatments locally if unwinding is your thing. Ubud monkey forest and cultural art hub of Bali is only an hours drive into the mountains. The Airport is located approximately 60 -90 minutes away.
