Fantastic house, nice setting, close to the beach and river! Very helpful tips, a great service! Highly recommended if you like quiet and beautiful places.
This place is outside the very populated touristy areas of Bali, a couple hours drive from Ngurah Rai airport. Eddie will arrange various things for you, including travel from the airport with a reliable and fun driver, massages at the villa, surfboard rentals, scooter rental, and beer in the fridge. He's also a great source of knowledge about local customs and what's available nearby.
It's just a short walk to the beach where there is good surf, and just a few doors down from a river you can SUP on. The building is quirky in a good way, and very relaxing. All the doors and windows open up for fresh air. It absolutely would sleep 7 people. We were there in the shoulder-season with just two of us, and it was a bit more than we needed, but we were so happy to stay there. If you have a larger group, this place is perfect. The open-air showers were so cool.
There are also multiple restaurants within a couple blocks, and you can get good sushi, American breakfasts, or more traditional food like nasi goreng and bintang beer just a short walk away. A bit further into Balian, there is also a vibrant night market with local food carts. The people here are incredibly friendly, and if you are looking to get off the beaten path, this place in shoulder-season is the place to be. We would love to go back.
