French-Indonesian Style + Two Traditional Javanese Houses = One Amazing Rental. Secluded, Minutes from Seminyak
Welcome jet-setting families! This Villa offers private accommodations near the trendy shops, bars and eateries of Seminyak, and it offers two exceptionally rare perks: a perfect location, plus meals, cleaning, and childcare provided by our wonderful English-speaking housekeeper, Putu.
Experience both sides of Balithis 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 kidsthanks to the villas location north of Seminyak, youll 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 youre outour housekeeper is a mother herself and is great with kids. Shell even fix them their own meal for a small charge.
Have teenagers or older kids? They love this villa too, thanks to this Villas 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 bedroomseach with their own bathroomand has been recently updated with modern furniture and finishes, plus gorgeous Balinese ceramics, lamps, and other items Ive 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, free of charge (she can prepare other meals, too, for a small fee). A chauffeur is also available for airport pick-up and drop-off, which is included in the nightly costor for other transportation needs you may have for a little bit extra.
If you need to catch up on emails or research the best restaurant in Seminyak, you can do so on the Villas 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 this 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 Seminyaks most trendy bars, restaurants and shops.
