Exclusive villa with pool, accomodates 6 + 2 kids.

Casa Atalaia is a unique Balinese style villa on top of a hill caressed by a soft marine breeze (no need for air conditioning), fully furnished, hidden away from neighbors and surrounded by untouched nature and hummingbirds. A peaceful place to rest and enjoy nature. There is a housekeeper/caretaker living in a red bungalow inside the property. The house itself has a big living room, tropical timbers, a large well equipped kitchen, three bedroom suites plus onother bedroom with two single beds, guests toilet, garage, chill out terrace, a 10x4m. pool, barbecue area and a beautiful big garden with autochthonous forest.

A great week in a lovely, quirky house.

  • 4 of 5

2nd time in Pipa, 1st time in this house. 3 generations stayed for a week in Casa Atalaia. We had a lovely time! The kids (aged 7+9) loved the pool, as did all of us adults. Perfect size & perfect temperature.

A lovely layout of the house with the open courtyard in the middle, so living room/dining area is not fully enclosed. Very nice design but it does mean the mosquitoes find their way to your blood easily... But nothing too bad! Just be aware in case you're sensitive to insects. We enjoyed the daily visits of the monkeys more! :-)

Location was perfect for us, quiet & private, away from village but an easy drive in. We found a new bar, Copa Cafe, located halfway between house & village which can be thoroughly recommended too.

Diego was very communicative and we had no issues with trip planning or house what so ever. At least none he could have prevented - there was a minor fire outside main gates of property one day which we spent some time putting out. Our one good holiday deed!

Thank you. We'd love to come back!

Un petit coin hors des sentiers

  • 5 of 5

Très jolie propriété en dehors de l'agitation nocturne de Pipa. Un petit coin de paradis avec un plus: la piscine. Excellent accueil et grande gentillesse du propriétaire qui nous a donné avant notre arrivée tous les conseils nécessaires pour passer d'excellents vacances: lieux de surf, bons restaurants, location de voiture etc. Nous recommandons vivement cette maison.

Owner's Response: I am very glad you all had a good time in Pipa and hope your kids had enjoyed the surf lessons at Madeiro Beach, which is an excelent "point" to learn. It´s always a pleasure to receive people and families so attentive and respectful. The house will be always open for you. Merci beaucoup!

Truly a nice place !

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Atalaya for 2 weeks in August, and it was truly a wonderful holiday..

We choosed Pipa because I was looking for a place where to enjoy kitesurfing, my wife expected some beautiful beaches, while our 20 years old daughters and friends wanted to have a least a little nightlife...And the fact is that everybody was more than happy with Pipa and Villa Atalaya !

The house is perfect, because it grants chill-out and beautiful nature, while it is quite close to the center and all bars and restaurants (you can go by walking within 15 mn)

Atalaya is a spacy villa, very tastefully arranged, comfortable and perfect for easyliving.

You don't have to worry about house cleaning, as it is included, and Frankie the housekeeper is a very nice person who helps to make your stay troubleless.

I would recommand Villa Atalaya even to my best friend ! I hope we can return one a day.

And by the way, if you look for a kitesurf teacher, ask for Pablo (360kitesurf)

Big thanks for you all guys !

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comments Christian, they are really helpful for people searching for a place to stay. I am happy you enjoyed Pipa, it's truly a magic place with great energy. Best regards, Diego. PD: This house was built by a parisian friend also called Christian, and designed by his then italian girlfriend. She´s an architect and they lived in Bali together for a while before moving to Pipa.

Casa maravilhosa!

  • 5 of 5

Passamos o carnaval desse ano na casa e assim que cheguei já quis avaliar tamanha a satisfação. Éramos 4 casais e todos ficaram impressionados com a beleza e qualidade da casa. As fotos não mentem, a casa é excelente e de muito bom gosto. Por ficar num terreno no alto é muito ventilada. Os quartos são grandes, possui toda a infraestrutura que os hóspedes precisam. A decoração rustica combina bem com o cenário de Pipa e a proximidade com a natureza é bom para um descanso merecido. O proprietário é muito atencioso e nos enviou várias dicas da cidade. O único ponto que pode melhorar é a churrasqueira, que é baixa e incomoda para fazer o churrasco.

A melhor casa da Pipa!

  • 5 of 5

A Casa Atalaia é um raro caso em que a casa é mais bacana do que as fotos mostram. Viemos com a família (4 filhos, entre 6 e 18 anos) e todos adoraram! A casa é super bem equipada, com capricho e cuidado nos mínimos detalhes. Ela é demais! Você toma o café da manhã na sala de jantar olhando para o céu azul e para um belo jardim no meio da casa. O dono da casa, Diego, é muito atencioso e está sempre disponível, especialmente por e-mail, para tirar todas as dúvidas.De noite, as luminárias vermelhas e a iluminação da piscina dão um toque especial. Não dá para perder o nascer da lua no terraço, que fica no alto da casa. Atalaia significa posto de observação em árabe. É só deitar nas almofadas e olhar para o céu enquanto as estrelas se acendem. Voltaremos!

Férias Maravilhosas!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Pipa é um de meus destinos favoritos e esta casa permite desfrutar ao

máximo da intensidade do lugar: natureza, tranquilidade, espaço...

acho ela ótima pra vir com família ou amigos. Tanto você pode ficar tranquilo em casa, pois não existe barulho de vizinhança, como você pode em poucos minutos estar na área mais badalada da Pipa com diversos restaurantes.

Atalaia House is located at Pipa beach, 1.312 yards (1.200 m) from the village centre. Google maps in the area don't work. Pipa is a relaxed place with great restaurants where you can enjoy several sports like surf, kite-surf, kayaking, horse-back riding, buggy trips and life music. The atmosphere is very casual with 82º F (28ºC) of temperature all year round, warm sea water, international tourism, active night-life, dolphins, boat trips, etc. The area offers other nice villages with lagoons at short distance all under strict environmental laws to protect nature.
