About Lene H. Nielsen
I have been coming to Lovina for 14 year and built the house 10 years ago. When we bought the land there was nothing on it but a dried-out well, a cow and lots of fruit trees. We designed the house ourselves and the garden also. I simply love all trees and flowers and try to get as many different ones as possible. What is better then to pick your own mangos, bananas and rambutans.
Lene H. Nielsen purchased this Villa in 2006

Excellent stay at Gaya Villa
My wife and I recently stayed at the Gaya Villa near Lovina. This was our second visit after staying here for six weeks in 2014. Mulan and Sri are both still working at the Gaya and we enjoyed reuniting with them and their families as well as with Lene, the villa owner. They are all simply put "a treat". The Gaya Villa is located within a local village where you get to enjoy an authentic Balinese experience - friendly villagers, chickens, roosters, sows and new born piglets plus school students on their way to and from school. The villa is well equipped with a wonderful yard and gardens. We enjoyed using the pool to refresh after a days biking around Lovina and the surrounding area. Obviously we would recommend it to people who would like to experience Balinese daily life in a relaxing friendly environment.
This place is paradise on Bali
This is a fantastic place to stay. Located in the authentic Bali - and still only 15 minutes walk from downtown Lovina and the black beaches. The beautiful house is located in an exotic garden with a nice pool. Our family loved it and we can only recommend you to stay at this fantastic place.
poorly maintained, uncomfortable quarters, dirty, no hot water in kitchen, staff was nice
we left after 1 day even tho we had paid for 5 nights in advance. This place does not live up to its photos or discription on the website. I wonder if the owner has ever visited it i the last few years.
Kristin and Stephen,
It is obvious that you and my villa was a total mismatch. It is a mystery to me why you told my staff not to mention to me that you left and why it took 2 weeks before you wrote me a complaint. The guests that arrived 4 days after you, told me that my place was a small paradise. My staff are very professional and will do anything to serve our guests and they take pride in keeping the house clean and the garden nice. I trust them completely. I myself stay in the house 2-3 months every year and I make sure everything gets maintained then. Last, let me mention that you did already get a refund from me. We do not want our guests to be unhappy on their holiday.
Best place for holyday
This accommodation is in a class by itself. The house is really nice, clean and comfortable, and well decorated. The garden is second to none and it is cleaned every morning. The friendly staff are very helpful both with transportation and breakfast. The house is conveniently located off the main street in a residential neighborhood that is exciting to explore. I can highly recommend a stay in this lovely house.
I had a wonderful time in Lovina and really enjoyed staying at Lene's house. It was such an extraordinary experience that appealed to all my senses and made me feel alive! The house is located in the middle of the village, which gives a very authentic impression of how life actually is lived in Lovina. I will never forget the lovely and spacious house or the beautiful garden with many different fruit trees and flowers (frangipani, my favourite). The swimming pool was nice and clean and was the perfect spot for reading. Every morning, the cocks woke me up, and every evening, the frogs, geckos etc. gave great concerts. The friendly staff did everything possible to make my stay unforgettable. They made sure that Lovina now has a special place in my heart, which is why I now am saving up for my next trip!
Great retreat in Bali and Close to the Beach!
Lovely property, lovely gardens and nice cool pool...peace and quiet in paradise.
Lovina Beach is an area stretching 4-5 km on the north coast of Bali. It is only 15 km from Singaraja, the second largest town in Bali and the former Dutch colonial administrative center for Bali till 1953. You will still find many houses from this period. You can also find the big local market, where you find everything from live chicken to gold and handy craft, or visit the harbor area.
Lovina is still not spoilt by the mass tourism of the south and you will find life much more easy going and relaxed. You will however still find plenty of restaurants, shops and music bars, if you want a night out.
There are also plenty of activities to see or do like trekking, diving, dolphin watching trips, go fishing in a local fishing boat, the hot springs and Buddhist temple or waterfalls but most memorable is meeting the Balinese people and seeing their daily lives, when you walk through the villages.
We can help you arrange most of these activities, just ask.
