Reviewed June 19, 2011

My stay was great... Mark helped me out plenty of times over the course of my trip even when I wasn't staying there...stayed in the downstairs room perfect for 1 or for 2 and is a great location to take back roads into seminyak and to echo beach canngu!
Thanks for a great stay!!

I stayed at Villa Tiga in October for 4 nights. Its a beautiful traditional building set next to some rice paddies. The upstairs bedroom is large double with air-conditoning, and a great balcony to enjoy the afternoon sunshine and watch the locals.Downstairs there is also another bedroom and a small lounge room with TV etc.
There is also a pool and a downstairs outside cooking area, so you can cook your own food if you would like.
I don't surf, but it is a short motorbike ride to the beach at Canggu / Brewara if you do.

Its really a great place to get out of the tourist hub and live with locals - and about
30, 000 to Seminyak in cab so you are not too far out, if you want that.

My wife and I stayed at Villa Tiga for nearly one month while living on Bali for a year. It was like our home away from home and we loved every minute there.

Villa Tiga is owned and operated by an Australian expat teacher named Mark and his Javanese wife, Lia. They are an absolutely lovely couple and went out of their way to make our stay perfect.

The Villa:

The compound consists of two buildings with a total of 3 rooms. Mark and Lia live in the smallest separate building leaving a two-story, two-room building available for rent. The top room is beautiful and spacious and includes a large deck overlooking some beautiful rice terraces. Air-con, cable tv, internet access are all available, and the bathroom is large and perfectly spotless. Clean sheets, clean towels etc. The downstairs room is smaller, but it is attached to a living room with a tv/dvd and small kitchen/dining area making for quite a large living space. The downstairs room has its own private bath, but you have to walk through the living room to get to it. The two rooms can be rented independently or together so that you have the whole house to yourself or your family. If you're a couple on a honeymoon or if you're looking for more privacy, I recommend the top floor apartment. If you're a surfer, backpacker or simple traveller, you won't find a cleaner or more affordable room than the downstairs unit. My wife and I stayed in the downstairs unit for a month and were very content there. Guests have full access to the kitchen and a full refrigerator which is nice when you want to store some snacks or drinks or cook your own meal from time to time.
There is a small pool approximately 5 meters long in the garden area between the houses that is perfect for a cool dip after a hot day at the beach.

Location:

The beach itself is very close. Pantai Berawa (Berawa Beach or Brawa Beach) is a short 3 minute motorbike drive away and is a great beginner surf spot if you get the tide timed right. When a bigger swell comes in it can be pretty big as well for more advanced surfers. Echo beach is about 10 minutes away by motorbike and is a better spot for more advanced surfers. The house is located out in the Canggu rice paddies away from all the crowds of seminyak. It is quiet and secluded but you can easily drive in to Seminyak in about 10 minutes to catch a bite or get a cocktail. Taxis are a bit inconvenient out there since you have to call for them so it's better if you have your own motorbike and can drive to wherever you want to go.

Service:

Villa Tiga is not a hotel. It truely is more of a guest house. The owners Mark and Lia are happy to help you with your stay get you anything you need, but they stay out of your way as much as possible. There is no front desk or room service or anything like that. In general though, you couldn't ask for better hosts than these two.

Summary:

I would absolutely recommend Villa Tiga to anyone I know. It is an extremely affordable option in Canggu which is one of the most desireable areas of Bali. Having lived on Bali for a year, this is my favorite area by far. If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay that is away from the noise and crowds of Kuta and Seminyak, but still within range of great dining and drinks, this is your place.
