Photos and Description of this Seminyak holiday villa

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Fully enclosable living areas, private pool and garden

Villa Kipas is one of four luxury villas in the Sekar Taman II complex located in the heart of Seminyak, the fashionable and luxurious part of Bali where all the best restaurants , bars and designer shops are located. It is also only 100 meters from the villa to the beach, via a very quiet laneway, and ideal for early morning walks or for wandering down to watch the glorious sunsets.

The villa has a modern design while retaining the feel of Bali. There is a private 9m x 3m pool with lush tropical Balinese gardens. Enter via a traditional gated entrance, across stepping stones over the fish ponds, to your own secure walled enclosure.

The Villa is fully furnished, with two bedrooms featuring super king size beds, luxurious en suite bathrooms - a separate living area and fully equipped kitchen.

Sit back and enjoy delicious meals cooked and served by our staff (or yourself) in your own villa - or visit Seminyak's famous local restaurants -KuDeTa, Potato Head, Meetis, Sarong or Gado Gado - all closeby.

Accommodation: There are two king size bedrooms, each with en suite bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and open plan living areas. The kitchen, dining room and living areas can all be fully secured with bi fold glass doors (and airconditioned) or they can be left totally open to your own private walled garden which is enhanced by the lush tropical garden and swimming pool.

The expansive terraces, both upstairs and downstairs, are flanked by gardens, water features and pools. So you can choose to relax, soak up the sun, swim, have a massage in the bale, or walk down the small path alongside these villas onto Seminyak Beach to watch the sunset.

About Neil Macdonald

We are an Australian couple, based in Sydney, who have been travelling to Bali for in excess of 30 years.

Why Neil Macdonald chose Bali

We originally fell in love with the location of Villa Kipas. So close to the beach, you can feel the cooling sea breezes, and yet also close to restaurants and shops.

What makes this villa unique

The laneway beside Villa Kipas goes directly onto Seminyak Beach. Great for those early morning pre breakfast walks on the beach, or even at the end of the day to watch the amazing sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just thought I would send you a quick note... Your Villa is beautiful and your staff are super amazing.. Windi is so friendly and warm... And Gedday is just a wonderful house'man - he is so discreet yet so friendly... Great cook too. Have had some great conversations... And what can I say about Sri... She is the best... She has massaged all my stresses away!!!! and so so lovely & warm too.

These staff are gold, you should be so proud to have them service your clients/Villas.

Fabulous Villas! Romi and all the staff very friendly and no request was too much trouble.

Perfect location so close to the beach - ideal for early morning or evening walk along the beach to Ku de Ta and La Lucciola Restaurants for breakfast or cocktails/dinner. You could feel the lovely sea breeze back at the villa all day.

Stunning lush gardens and beautiful pool - total privacy and very quiet, being far enough away from the main road traffic and not situated on a busy main road!

Gorgeous 4 poster beds and lovely ensuite bathrooms with shower floor pebbles and skylights for natural light.

Would definitely rebook Villa Kipas on my next trip to Bali - can fully recommend it to anyone looking for livable luxury!

Oasis in Seminyak

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a six night stay at Villa Kipas, we are returning guests to the Villa and the Villa does not disappoint. The lovely staff, Gede and Asa, were fantastic ensuring all our needs were met, nothing was a problem and they cooked us a beautiful breakfast each morning.

The villa is located just a short stroll to the beach and about a $2 taxi ride to any of the eateries or shopping in Seminyak. We took a note of the owners recommendations for restaurants and we tried to work our way through them all, so many excellent choices and so difficult to pick a favourite.

The Villa itself still looks amazing and a couple of additions have been made since our last visit one was that the top balcony has been covered and timber ceilings in the bedrooms. There are many outstanding features of this Villa, the generous size of the living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms.

Overall, we greatly enjoyed our stay at Villa Kipas and were very sad to say goodbye to both our villa and the amazing staff, we look forward to returning again soon and have no hesitation in recommending this Villa.

Beautiful Villa, great location and service

  • 4 of 5

The Villa was very well maintained and as pictured...but is larger than it looks in the pictures. The staff, from being picked up and dropped off at the airport, greeting us at Villa, preparing breakfast and daily cleaning was great. Short walk to the beach, which is good, but not the cleanest by US standards (crowded on weekend, empty during the week), but normal for the area (I live in Thailand and have traveled in Indo). I went there to surf and be near the beach and it was great for me. The owner was very helpful and the rental process was very easy and safe. I would recommend this place highly for couples or family that would like something other than a hotel room. We BBQed steaks one night, played music with the supplied Bose speaker and played in the private pool. It's like being at home and then stepping out the gate into Bali.

Would definitely return to Villa Kipas

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed Villa Kipas. The property was just like the beautiful photos! Great location a short walk to a very nice beach. We so appreciated all the "extras"--transport to/from the airport, wonderful breakfast each morning from lovely staff, massages in the villa--all of it added to the feeling of being in a truly luxury property. Neil offers fantastic customer service, and some fabulous restaurant recommendations! We're looking forward to returning to Villa Kipas.

Easter Break

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at Villa Kipas. The villa was even better than the photographs. The men who came each day were very friendly, were very good cooks and kept the place spotless. We had a massage in the villa which was enjoyable and arranged for a car to take us to Ubud for the day. This was a good trip and the was very easily arranged.

The villa is just down a lane from the beach and we walked most places including to restauarants at night along the beach.

It was on of the most relaxing holidays we have had.

Villa Kipas

  • 4 of 5

The villa Kipas is a very clean, good located house with a lovely staff of one or two persons who will make your breakfast and clean the house. After that they leave the house so that you have enough privacy. On your arrival the manager will give you all the information you need and the sea is just around the corner. Lunch can be ordered from the hotel, sandwiches are very good. Kudeta is 5 minutes walking on the beach as well as Oberoi Hotel. The first night we had to get used to the noice of motorbikes and cars but the second night it was better. Ultimo was our favorite restaurant but I would advise to go by taxi. Please note that you have the make a reservation for each restaurant, it is very busy!
