We, Herbert and Rita Gleisberg, are the proud owners of Villa Cerah.

Why Herbert Gleisberg chose Lokapaksa
We have long searched for a suitable place, but here in Bali everything came together: A beautiful location, plenty of culture and sights and above all friendly people. All seasons beautiful weather (average 30 ° C), a location right on the beach and sea and with a beautiful tropical garden. We think it's very nice to be able to share our "Bali Feeling" with the guests of our villa. Selamat Datang di rumah kami (Welcome to our house).
What makes this Villa unique
Despite its young existence, this holiday villa by making conscious, especially practical choices in the construction and fitting, we received very quick the Zoover Highly Recommandation 2013, the Zoover Winner Award in 2014 and recently received the Zoover GOLD Award in 2015 (5th in the category villas all over Indonesia). An excellent result that is not in the least place was for the committed service and cooking of the permanent employees. Villa Cerah with wonderful reviews rewarded by a multitude of enthusiastic and international guests. The villa is very conscious designed with a living room and an open kitchen. The four air-conditioned bedrooms have for your privacy each its own bathroom with shower and toilet. There is a choice made for a practical design that fits the authentic Bali. Some of the furniture is therefore made of bamboo, which is highly appreciated by the guests and the increase in their holiday feeling. Beds have a mosquito net, so you may or may not be free to use the air conditioning. In an all seasons average temperature of about 30 degrees Celsius you live mostly outdoors. And that is where the emphasis is on at Villa Cerah with a comfortable lounge set under the roof to relax in and a large 8-seater outdoor table to enjoy and your meals served. For sun worshipers, there is the immediately adjacent spacious terrace with sun beds and parasols. From there, as you splash in the large pool to cool off. Do you want to get in private to relax, you can use the garden shed (bale benong) with a large mattress and plenty of pillows, where you past the palm trees (in our highly acclaimed tropical garden) and have a unique view over the Bali sea or where you can enjoy a wonderful relaxing massage. In short, all the elements come together at Villa Cerah for an unforgettable and heavenly stay in Bali. You're welcome.

Relaxing seaside holiday
We were a group of 2 couples who spent Christmas at Villa Cerah. From the initial contact with the villa owners we had a great feeling about how the rest of the trip would turn out. The booking process was very easy and we arrived at the villa with high expectations. Our expectations were met with awesome villa staff, a beautiful villa/gardens/pool and all the amenities we could ask for. The housekeepers Sani and Ulu were exceptional, they sure know how to cook! They made us beautiful breakfast, lunch and dinner as we requested. The villa is in a very quiet part of Bali, perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta or Seminyak! As the villa is in a quiet part further down from Lovina, be prepared to relax and enjoy the quiet. Lovina and other northern Bali attractions are a short drive away for those days you wish to do something active or seek a change of scenery. There was security on site and we felt very at home here. Fantastic stay! Thank you :)
THE Perfect villa in a fantastic location!
We've just returned from a two week stay at Villa Cerah. The description and photos were completely accurate, in fact we found it even better than we expected. Extremely clean and well kept, this villa was perfect for our family of four. Our children loved swimming in the well maintained pool, the water temperature was warm day or night! The bedrooms were air-conditioned which was very welcome after the humid hot days, with mosquito nets over all the beds which offered well needed protection from the mozzies. The staff, Sani, Regan and Gusti were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The location was lovely with beautiful views of the mountains from the front and the sea from the back. There is a local fishing village about 200 metres up the beach and my husband enjoyed waking early and photographing the fisherman bringing in their daily haul and watching the children play. The local town of Serririt was fantastic with a huge supermarket (Hardy's) offering some Western foods, and real local markets and offerings in the surrounding streets, very few tourists there which we loved.
Lovina is a 30 min drive and offers great restaurants, markets and spas. We highly recommend Global Village Kafe in Lovina for the best coffee and yummy food with great service and Spice Beach Club in Lovina for a more expensive, but highly exceptional dining experience (and they offer free p/up and d/off service). The drivers that we used were recommended by the villa staff and were professional and safe and knew all the places to go. We enjoyed snorkelling at Mangellan Island, the Buddhist Temple, Hot Springs and so much more. Oh and the best desserts are found at the chocolate museum halfway to Lovina! Our children LOVED swimming with the dolphins at the Melka Hotel - an experience not to miss! and we even saw dolphins from our pool one day - beautiful. The gardens around the villa were divine and we enjoyed relaxing in the bale and on the porch. Sani cooked us some amazing local food which we enjoyed a lot. The only negative was there is a Muslim mosque nearby and they broadcast the prayers and chanting early morning and early evening, which initially we found annoying, but we soon learned to take it in as part of the experience.
We highly recommend this villa, the communication with Herbert & Rita in Holland was exceptional and backed up by the fantastic staff they have employed to manage the villa.
THANK YOU so much.
Janine & Peter Griffiths.
Thanks Janine and Peter for this wonderful review. It rewards our passion to share the "Bali Feelings" with the guests of our Villa Cerah.
We realize that especially in the beginning of your stay you have to get used to the expressions of the mosque. Possibly the calls to prayer were more frequent because of Ramadan. Besides Hinduism, Bali has a large population of Muslims and as you know, this is part of the culture.
Beautiful Ocean Villa, Great Staff, Tranquility
My family and I (myself, wife, mother, father) stayed at Villa Cerah for nine nights over Christmas and New Years in 2013 - absolutely wonderful villa, pretty garden in the grounds, great pool, staff were extremely helpful, kind, and understanding. The food and cooking was top notch and very delicious - we only paid for groceries and told them to treat us to Indonesian/Balinese specialities and we were not disappointed. Plenty of space in the villa with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and the expansive outdoor furniture comfortably seated everyone. Cannot say enough about how happy we were with stay. The villa sits right on a black sand beach which we never experienced before and the ocean was calm this time of year, hardly any rain despite being the rainy season in Bali (north coast usually avoids much rain during this period). The villa is down a long side road full of other villas, rice paddies and vineyards (lots of winemaking in the area) so a car or moto scooters are needed to explore any where further afield, which the staff can arrange no problem. We felt pampered the whole time and would gladly stay again. Owners were very helpful every step of the way in the booking process and answered my many questions very quickly. I always do rentals for my vacations and really, no downside on this one.
Geweldig goed huis (kleine details daargelaten)
Zwembad was perfect!
Chauffeur prima en vooral voorziichtig.
Geweldig genoten in Villa Cerah!!!
Het contact met de eigenaren bij het zoeken naar een mooi verblijf in Lovina verliep zeer goed. Ze hadden goede tips voor ons en we zijn dan ook superblij dat we voor hun Villa Cerah hebben gekozen!
Wat een heerlijk verblijf hebben wij gehad in deze prachtige villa! In het echt is het hier nóg mooier dan op de foto's. We voelden ons als een koninklijke familie.
We hebben ons ontzettend goed vermaakt, mede dankzij de geweldige staff met hun heerlijke kookkunsten en hun contacten in de buurt om de mooiste excursies te regelen.
Nog één dag genieten en dan verder naar ons volgende verblijf. Het is dat we nog verder gaan naar andere plaatsen, maar we hadden hier zó nog 2 weken kunnen verblijven!
Indruk Villa Cerah
Villa Cerah was voor ons een fantastische ervaring. Alles wat de eigenaar beloofde heeft hij waargemaakt. De staf was enorm servicegericht. Onze welgemeende complimenten aan zowel de Eigenaar als het personeel. Wij zullen in de toekomst zeer zeker naar deze Onderkomen wederkeren. Chapeau.
Villa Cerah (Zoover Award GOLD winner 2015) is a holiday villa located directly on the beach and the sea in the quiet and authentic north of Bali. The villa can accommodate up to 8 adults. The layout consists of a spacious living room, an open kitchen and four bedrooms. For your privacy, each bedroom has its own bathroom "en suite" with a shower, toilet and washbasin. The kitchen is fully equipped.
The villa is built on a private property of approx. 2040 m2, has a beautiful tropical garden with a large swimming pool (6 x 12 m) and lots of privacy. On the partly covered terrace you can relax from comfortable subsets or from the lounge set under the cooling fans, relax and enjoy the truly magnificent view over the beach and the sea.
You rent the villa in its entirety. So there are no other guests. Our permanent staff (included in the price) consists of one or two housekeepers (depending on the size of the company), a gardener and a security guard.
The housekeepers (pembantu's) can cook for you 6 days a week, keep the villa clean, make the beds and take care of your daily groceries. They can even do your laundry and ironing, even if it is for your own risk. The maintenance of the garden and the pool are entrusted to our regular gardener. The security guard keeps an eye on the night and at night, protects the guests and the villa and if necessary is your contact in those hours.
Bed linen, towels and beach towels are sufficiently present and included in the price. The villa has free wireless fiber optic Internet.
All bedrooms have individually controlled air conditioners. Three bedrooms are furnished with decorative double beds in bamboo style with mosquito net. The fourth bedroom has two single beds, also with mosquito net.
In the garden, near the beach is at the end of the terrace / swimming pool a so called Balé Bengong (rest house with thatched roof, a large mattress, cushions and roll-away padded bamboo privacy windscreens). From this place you can enjoy an unobstructed view over the beach, the sea and occasionally the activities of local fishermen in their characteristic boats and fishing nets. This is also the ideal place to enjoy a wonderful massage or other form of Wellness, which can easily be arranged through our housekeepers.
After your arrival you will be offered a free basic welcome dinner, as well as a basic breakfast the next morning. Then the meals etc. are for your own costs.
We are happy to arrange the transfer to the villa for you. Transportation in Bali is relatively cheap and can be arranged through the Helpdesk or our housekeepers. It is therefore not necessary that you rent a car yourself. The drivers speak English well and can also provide you with all sorts of tourist information and places where the normal tourist barely comes.
Villa Cerah is located directly on the beach in the authentic north of Bali. Within a short walk over this beach you will reach the fishing community of Lokapaksa. The locals are very friendly. On the south side of the villa you have an unobstructed view over the rice fields to the mountains of Buleleng. In the villa, there is an extensive information folder with all information about the villa, tourist activities and attractions.
The villa is located near the town of Seririt. Here you will find several shops, an almost daily Pasar Malam and a typical Balinese market. Furthermore, there are many sights and activities to experience in the immediate vicinity. At less than 4.5 kilometers from the villa is the Water Park Gran Surya Seririt and the amusement park Krisna Fantastic Land with many attractions.
We can also recommend a visit to the Buddhist Temples, the Waterfalls of Gitgit or to Mejangan Island (famous diving and snorkeling paradise). If you like walking and want to experience more about the environment and culture of Bali, the 'Lovina Tracking' is a recommendation. You can take a hike through the interior with a guide.
You can also visit high in the mountains near Bedugul, Lake Bratan. in the lake is the famous temple Puru Ulun Danu. Also known are Ubud, a real artist village with the park Monkey Forenst and the town of Mas, because of the carvings. Bali has many temples, Pura Beij or Pura Dalem, accessible via the main road to Singaraja. At a short distance from the villa are also the healing baths of The Hot Spings 'Air Panas'.
Directly from the beach in front of the villa you can be picked up for a trip with a fishing boat to spot dolphins.
This is just an overview of some of the many sights and activities in the area. Villa Cerah is the perfect base for this. More detailed information can be found in the villa information folder.
