Overview

Photos and Description of this Banjar holiday villa

Beach front villa, 5 bedrooms, swimming pool, shaded palm tree garden

This spacious Villa is situated near a fishing village, directly looking onto the beach, allowing the cooling sea breezes to circulate in the Villa. The well known therapeutic hot springs, are close by in Banjar, which has a thriving local market and a Buddhist temple.

The Villa has two living areas, with 5 bedrooms and can accommodate from 2 to 8 people.There are 2 bathrooms and an outside shower. The living areas are open plan, spacious with 2 comfortable seating areas and high vaulted wooden ceilings. The kitchen, dining and living rooms look out of the large windows to the beach and sea 10 metres away. Internal cooling is by 3 air conditioning units, sea breezes, floor and ceiling fans.

There is a satellite TV, DVD player and music system.

Outside is an oval swimming pool ,a childrens pool area ,and separate outside shower. There is a grassed area, several flower beds and shady palms. A gated entrance ensures privacy. There is also a shaded outside dining pavillion looking out to sea.Recently we have purchased the land next door, so there is more garden area and access to the sea.

Ganesha Villa is in a great location for exploring the many natural delights of Northern Bali.

It is a large comfortable Villa with 5 bedrooms and is arranged around the garden and pool.

It is popular with families, as well as couples and small groups , as the accomodation rate is very reasonably priced.

Swimming and snorkelling is available right outside the villa, and fishing trips can be made with the local fishermen in their traditional wooden boats. The catch can be yours for dinner. Or simply walk onto the beach outside the kitchen and select some very fresh fish from the returning fishermen.

During the rainy season{January to April],the seas can become rough, so possibly no seabathing and boating.It varies each year and the weather can be unpredictable.

The locals are very friendly and unimposing adding to the natural charms of this special area. Refreshingly different to the enviroment and activity of Southern Bali.

Dolphin watching is also possible from these boats or from Lovina .You only have to step out of the Villa and walk across the beach to step into your awaiting fishing boat. This can be very exciting as there are many dolphins here and they can put on quite a spectacle.

The best diving and snorkelling in Bali is found to the west near Menjangen island. Our driver can take you there for a day of underwater activity .Along the way are a variety of temples to see, the largest is 2km away,being a Buddhist meditation centre, which is open for viewing and practise.

The well known therapeutic Hot springs are closeby near Banjar Village,and offer massage, waterfalls and relaxing mineral pools.This can be a great treat in the morning before breakfast,and a wonderful way to start the day.

Also nearby are the largest waterfalls in Bali, the Git Git waterfalls set in lush green forest, where it is possible to swim and cool off. The hills behind the Villa are full of winding roads ,and footpaths to explore this green and wilder part of Bali.

If you like natural attractions this is the place to be.

Lovina town is 5km to the East, and is a source of good restaurants ,bars, shops and entertainment.

To add to this description ,we include this recent review from Villarenters, in November 2011.

'We enjoyed a wonderful 6 day stay at Villa Ganesha at the beginning of november. The attractive house,garden and pool pleased us as soon as we walked through the gate..The house proved to be spacious,well equiped and comfortable .It was kept clean and tidy by the wonderful Made who also cooked us delicious meals. We particularily enjoyed being in the midst of the small fishing community and being able to watch the local, smiling, friendly people go about their daily lives.

We shared our days between relaxing in the pool or watching the world go by whilst having breakfast in the summerhouse over looking the beach, and venturing out to see the sites.

Our dolphin spotting trip was an unforgettable experience. We also had a day out visiting the Git Git waterfalls, Lake Beratan with its beautiful temple and the hot springs at Banjar. We chose Villa Ganesha after reading details on the website and the very positive reviews of previous visitors and we were not disappointed. We would love to repeat the experience.'

Many more positive and detailed reviews can be seen through our website and booking links,which we we will provide on your email enquiry.

Beautifull villa with enough rooms for our family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the villa with 8 persons: 6 adullt en two children aged 6 and 4 years old.

We had a lot of in the swimming pool. The beach was black sand. Ilu was very kind young women and cooked marvellous for us.

She did a lot: buying food, cleaning the house, making the beds and cooked for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When you liked it, there came some women for massage.

We enjoyed our stay very much!!

Alex brought us to several restaurants in Lovina.

On some days the beach was not very clean because in the sea floated some things and that stranded on the beach.

All 10 of us loved every minute in Bali. the place, the people and the villa were all amazing. the staff which looked after us at the villa were very accommodating and loved nothing more than to look after us and tend our every need. The villa was more than we needed, clean, comfortable and most welcoming with its lovely feel and atmosphere. WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK.

Superb property, comes highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we had a lovely welcome from the staff at the villa. The setting is beautiful and located right on the sea front. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious and the living space is airy and beautifully finished. The garden area is well maintained with luscious plants and flowers and the pool is cool and refreshing to relax by on warm days. All transactions with the owner were smooth and efficient, and Ganesha Villa is well worth a stay if you are looking for a peaceful retreat.

Great stay in Lovina

  • 5 of 5

We spent the second week of our Bali holiday in Villa Ganesha after our first week in Seminyak and before our final week in Ubud.

We are a couple with two kids (11 and 8 years old). The Villa would easily accomodate 8 or even 10 people (five bedrooms, four of them airconditioned), so there was plenty of room. We only used the main building, although the nicest bedroom was in the neighbouring building. The two buildings surround the pool, which is big enough for swimming and is a great place to relax and refresh. The house has direct access to the beach and is neighbour to a small village. There are many roosters that get up at about 5:00 in the morning, which we recognized as part of the village life. The noise didn't really bother us, as we usually got up around sunrise at 6:30.

The cook Iluh provided breakfast and a great variety of Indonesian dishes for lunch and dinner, better than what we had in many restaurants. Therefore, we didn't miss any restaurants being close to the house.

Dewa was the villa's night guard and he took care of the pool and the garden.

Alex, the villa manager, organized transport and motorbikes for us. Motorbikes are helpful to get around in the area (Lovina, hot springs in Banjar and mountains), as taxi trips should be planned in advance. The traffic is not as crazy as in the busy south of the island.

Tim, the owner, was very helpful in sending Information on the house before our arrival. With his description, it was easy to find the villa.

We can recommend this house, also for larger groups than ours, and we would definitely return when travelling to Bali again.

Thank you Tim and kind regards to your staff, who made our stay so memorable

Ganesha Villa is located in beautiful Northern Bali, right on the beach,and is an ideal retreat and comfortable holiday home.

The Villa is suitable for couples or larger groups and families, up to 8 persons.There are 5 double bedrooms, 3 with double beds, 2 with 2 single beds.The dining table takes 8 persons.

The Villa is priced with Bali prices in mind to represent good value for money for couples and families.

We have 3 Indonesian staff who provide cooking, cleaning and security.The cost of the food is yours.They are included in the price.Our manager speaks good English, and helps with driving, tours and general guidance.

If you are looking for a comfortable mid range Villa by the sea, where you are able to watch the locals fish and launch their wooden boats,with lots to explore nearby, then Ganesha Villa is a great option. The villa is near a small fishing village with a mixture of Balinese and westerners houses, not in a gated holiday complex. There is a small local shop where you can buy some basic products, including the local beer.

Banjar hot springs are 5 minutes away by car and offer a wonderful therapeutic opportunity, including hydro massage and mineral baths. This is areal gem in Northern Bali as it is a natural water therapy garden set beside a fast flowing river in the forest.The mineralised volcanic water is a perfect temperature and is really soothing.A great start to the day and close to Ganesha Villa. After a morning visit here it is back for a specially prepared breakfast, and a swim in the pool or the sea. So lots of options.

A Buddhist meditation temple with beautiful gardens is also in Banjar.

For nature lovers the Git Git and Sing Sing waterfalls are well worth visiting and close by. This is the real unspoilt Bali with many of natures gifts.

The best diving and snorkelling in Bali is to the West, at Menjangen island.It is just over an hour by car along the coast and makes a great day out.

Lovina resort is 10 minutes by car and offers dolphin watching trips, restaurants, bars and nightlife.

Please discuss your needs with the cook. She will do the shopping if you supply a list, you will need to pay for the food in advance. A receipt can be supplied if required. Dewa is night security and an artist and fisherman. He can take you fishing or to see dolphins. You can ask the staff to go home at any time to enjoy complete privacy. Alex the manager is a guide and driver and will be very helpful to explore the local area and the rest of Bali. He charges a local taxi rate to drive you.We often use Alex or hire a car or scooter. Lovina is 15 minutes away for restaurants and night life. Finally the gardener cleans the pool and sweeps the beach outside.
