Two Traditional Javanese Houses, One Amazing Rental – Minutes from Seminyak

Bedrooms 3
Space 400 m²
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Privacy, near Seminyak, 3 Bed., Pool, Maid Service, Sleeps 6

Welcome jet-setting families! Adagian Villa offers private accommodations near the trendy shops, bars and eateries of Seminyak, and it offers two exceptionally rare perks:

- a perfect location, plus option for meals, cleaning, and childcare provided by our wonderful English-speaking housekeeper, Putu,

- two traditional Javanese houses, 1 big Joglo and 1 small Gladak, with the comforts that you need (air condition, high speed wifi, en-suite bathrooms).


Adagian Villa is an ideally located home base for both island exploration and evening fun. Spend the day hiking the mountains of Central Bali, lounging on the beach, or exploring Balinese rice fields and iconic temples with the kids—thanks to the villa’s location north of Seminyak, you’ll avoid the traffic getting there. Head back and top it off with a splash in the pool, which is surrounded by tall trees and a carefully cultivated garden for total seclusion, or take a shower in the modern, entirely private open-air bathroom attached to your bedroom.

Then, put on your best little black dress or slim suit and take a 10-minute taxi ride into Seminyak, where you can sip a cocktail at hip bars like Charlie, Potato Head and the W, and eat a delectable meal at one of countless hot spots serving innovative Indonesian cuisine, such as Metis, Sardine, Sarong and Merah Putih.


No need to worry about the little ones while you’re out—our housekeeper is a mother herself and is great with kids. She’ll even fix them their own meal for a small charge.

Have teenagers or older kids? They love this villa too, thanks to Adagian Villa’s two-house setup. The teenagers can claim the smaller, one-bedroom house, which is a traditional Indonesian wood house called a “gladak,” transported here from Java.

The big house, called a “joglo” is also built in traditional Javanese style, has two air-conditioned bedrooms—each with their own bathroom—and has been recently updated with modern furniture and finishes, plus gorgeous Balinese ceramics, lamps, and other items I’ve collected in my hunt for beautiful things in Bali. The living area and kitchen are open to the outdoors, so the sun streams in and a gentle breeze cools you while you lounge on the sofa, or prepare a light meal for your family in the fully equipped kitchen.


Putu arrives every morning to tidy up and fix breakfast for you (Breakfast is $6 per person per day; She can prepare other meals, too, for a small fee). A chauffeur is also available for airport pick-up and drop-off (Additional fee) —or for other transportation needs you may have for a little bit extra. Let us know, we can arrange things very easily, no worries for you and no extra-planning required to make your family happy.

If you need to catch up on emails or research the best restaurant in Seminyak, you can do so on the Villa’s free WiFi. Another option for choosing your entertainment is to consult my guide of favorite places (this is my vacation home, too, so I know the area well), which I leave for you in the villa.

From start to finish, a vacation at Adagian Villa presents you with the very best that Bali has to offer. Transition seamlessly from an afternoon exploring breathtaking beaches, mountains, and traditional villages, to an evening out at Seminyak’s most trendy bars, restaurants and shops.

Now is the time to book your getaway at Adagian Villa. Get in touch with me today, or book your dates using the button below.

About Thibault Masson

Thank you for visiting my profile ;-)

I am a French guy who has been lucky enough to travel and live in several countries and to get a U.S. education. I now share my time between St Barts, Paris, and Bali, where I welcome guests in my own houses. Will you be the next one?

Having guests in my houses makes me happy, as I feel that I am sharing and spreading the joys of living in such great houses in such great locations.

If you have a touchy-feely side like me, you will enjoy your vacations in my houses. For instance, I love watching spectacular sunsets of the small islands surrounding St Barts, looking at the reflections of clouds in the puddles of a black sand beach in Bali, or just having a cup of coffee early morning at the terrace of a Parisian café.

Make my houses yours. They have their own personality and cachet, but they are not about me: they are about your enjoying great, stress-free vacations with your close ones. Have fun, be romantic, talk with your loved ones, cook a great meal for your friends.

I love privacy. My house and staff will always offer you maximum privacy.

Feel free to contact me. I will strive to answer as fast as possible, whereever in the world I am.

Thibault Masson purchased this villa in 2012

Why Thibault Masson chose Umalas

I bought this villa because I wanted to 'live Bali' according to my changing moods: to be able to go to Seminyak quickly to try a new trendy restaurant in 15 minutes, to stay at home with friends and see their kids have a blast in my pool, or to drive away from it all and hike in the mountains in less than 1 hour.

The real Bali is what you make of it. The location of my villa ADAGIAN, in Umalas, gives you the opportunity to sample all kinds of sides of Bali: beaches, mountains, temples, shopping, hiking, spending time with your loved ones, taking time for yourself.

I must say that if you are into bar-hopping in Kuta, night after night, my villa will not be the right place for you. After a few days (nights?), you will feel that it is a bit too far from your regular spots.

But if you want to relax in a nice, simple but comfortable house, while being able to go trendy restaurants or explore the island, this is place is just for you and your loved ones.

What makes this villa unique

- Location: a very peaceful area, with rice fields and trees, and yet only 10 minutes away from the trendy restaurants and bars

- A house for 6 people, simple but with a lot of charm

- 2 traditional Javanese houses with modern amenities

- Carefully chosen homeware (Bali ceramics), high quality linens

- A beautiful pool, a manicured garden with a small private temple, tall trees

- Free high-speed wifi and a computer for you to use

- A lovely maid who can speak English very well and a manager who take all the stress away from your travel planning

Our villa is located in Umalas, the perfect location for your Bali vacation. Why? Because while our peaceful street still had rice fields and trees, we are 10 minutes away by motobrike to all the fashion bars and restaurants of Seminyak and Kerobokan (Métis, Sardine, Mozaic, etc.).

And when you want to leave town to explore the rest of the island, like Ubud, you do not have to spend hours in a car, as Umalas, our area, is located north of the Kuta - Seminyak heavy traffic.

Our villa is surrounded by high trees that make you feel like you are on the countryside, when you are just minutes way from the hot spots of Bali.
