“Exceptional staff & beautifully designed villa”
Reviewed June 12, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at the Sea Shanty over Chinese New Year. It has been beautifully renovated with real attention to detail - pool toys, spare insect repellant, children's books etc are available, as well as a fully kitted out kitchen. I felt totally at ease leaving my 1 year old with Lina while we took the older children to Uluwatu.
It was very easy to stay in the villa, Lina is an excellent cook and her husband Supri and Tino were wonderful with our boys.
The only downside is that once you get out of the villa it isn't as pretty as other parts of Bali, but if you want somewhere for RnR then it works well.

Thanks for your kind words. We are very pleased you had a lovely holiday. It is certainly very different to the lush countryside with rice paddies in Ubud and other volcanic mountainous areas of Bali. We believe it makes for a good contrast to that part of Bali, being ideal if you like beach holidays and being close to the water. Come again soon!

“Luxurious home away from home”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Sea Shanty was such a blissful getaway - I didn't want to leave! It felt like a home away from home - a fantastic combination of luxury and casual comfort. The photos are exactly like the place. The villa is exquisitely designed and furnished, the gardens are gorgeously maintained and that private pool just beckons! The location is great - only 15 minute drive from the airport (non-peak time), just a minute walk to the beach and a couple of minutes to cafes, restaurants, spas etc. And the staff are so helpful and friendly, and every utensil/equipment you could want is there. It was just the relaxing escape I was looking for away from bustling Jakarta. Highly recommended, particularly for groups with children who are looking for child-friendly accommodation and location. Thanks so much for having me stay!

“The best of both worlds”
Reviewed November 21, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

I stayed at The Sea Shanty for ten days in August 2014 together with my family, including four boys. The Sea Shanty is a beautifully and thoughtfully designed villa tucked down a quiet road no more than a few hundred yards from the beach. We loved being so close to the sea, restaurants and water sports while at the same time being able to withdraw to the haven of quiet and tranquillity (bar the boys) that is The Sea Shanty. The resident staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. We had a great time.

I stayed at Sea Shanty with my Girlfriend and our 4 children. The house was beautifully decorated and styled. The layout was sensational, flat lawn with a pool that the whole downstairs could look out onto. It was the essence of indoor and outdoor feel at it's best. We had beautiful fresh meals prepared and everything we needed to know was at our fingertips.
It really made our Bali holiday as it was easy with style. Thank you Sea Shanty team!

“Our favorite villa in Bali”
Reviewed November 7, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
1
person found this review helpful

The Sea Shanty is our new favorite villa in Bali. We have been coming to Bali for 10 years and have stayed in many villas, but this one stands out above the rest. The open-air style, the local design and touches, great living entertaining areas, awesome staff and quiet little location. Plus its only a couple of hundred meters from the best family beach in Bali.

For years when we came to we came to Bali would always stay in Seminyak, and we do still love the restaurants, bars and shops, but we realised that it is easy to visit Seminyak when the urge takes you.. But for the rest of your time in Bali, there is no better place in Bali for families than Jimbaran. The beach is clean (Seminyak and Canggu are so polluted these days they are almost unswimable) the waves are calm enough for little kids, its close to the best surf breaks in Bali, close the airport, it now has a great selection of restaurants and of course the nightly seafood on the beach is great for sundowners.

We go to Bali every year for our family holiday and now that we have found this place we wont stay anywhere else.

“Most Family Friendly Villa we have EVER stayed in!”
Reviewed November 4, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We are just back from 12 days at The Sea Shanty and we absolutely loved our stay in this villa. The design of the villa is extremely family friendly (one of the best villa kitchens we have ever seen, non-slip flooring, portable pool fence and brand new car seats provided free of charge,) but what we loved the most was the staff. The staff at the Sea Shanty were amazing. They were great with the kids, spoke excellent English and just could not do enough to ensure we had the best time. From changing nappies, to drying off the kids from the pool - we have never had such a great experience with a local Bali team - we wanted to take Lina home with us!
We also really enjoyed staying in Jimbaran - it was our first time to Jimbaran (although we have been to Bali 10-12 times) - the beach was beautiful, there were some amazing restaurants (including the fabulous and MUST TRY Cuca - which is walking distance via the beach) - and it was just great for young families.
We will definitely be coming back to The Sea Shanty.
