Tropical oasis <100 m from Seminyak beach, 2-storey 2-bedroom Bali-style house for up to 5 guests, secluded, private garden & private pool, sunny, family-friendly, very quiet neighbourhood, central location, minutes walking distance to beach/ restaurants/ bars/ nightlife/ shopping.
Our Cottage by the beach with private pool is the perfect place for fun and relaxing holidays in one of the best locations in Seminyak. With direct access to the beach (less than 100 meters), the property combines privacy in a beautiful and cozy ambience (private garden & swimming pool, patio and gazebo) with fun & sun on the beach — surfing, sunbathing, food, cocktails & cold beer, all in just a few minutes walking distance. The cottage is also in the best location to watch the breathtaking sunsets Bali is so famous for.
About the place: 2-storey renovated Balinese-style house, fully furnished, 2 bedrooms with AC, 2 bathrooms (one ensuite, one separate with glass door exit to garden and pool), living room with LCD TV, DVD, MP3 player, fully equipped kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, blender and hot & cold water dispenser.
The property is located inside a compound that it shares with one other house (which has its own garden separated by a bamboo wall). Thus, the garden and pool that belong to the cottage are exclusive for cottage guests and separated from other areas of the compound by a bamboo wall. The entire compound is closed-off from the access alley by a stone wall and metal gate.
The house consists of a brickwork ground floor and a wooden second floor. The ground floor includes living room (with access to patio, garden & pool), kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The second floor includes the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom under a Balinese-style roof and offers a view across the garden into the greenery between the property and the beach. First and second floor in the house are connected via a spiral staircase (the spaces between steps are relatively large and might be somewhat difficult for small kids or elderly persons).
Due to the location of the house close to the ocean and the occasional heavy rains that are typical for the tropics, the wooden parts of the house are weathering and ageing fast. However, we are continuously working to maintain the house in good shape.
The garden is enclosed by a stone wall, which separates the property from the green-/bushland beyond, and a bamboo fence, which separates the house, garden & pool area from other areas of the compound, allowing complete privacy.
Our cottage is the perfect vacation home for couples, families or groups of friends, comfortably fitting four and up to five people as we can provide a foldable bed for a fifth person. The cottage can also be rented together with an apartment located in the second house in the compound. The apartment can accommodate 2-4 guests (please see airbnb listing "Bali Studio by the Beach").
Wireless internet available - parking lot - quiet neighbourhood - daily house cleaning service – beautiful refreshing swimming pool (serviced three times a week) in a lush tropical garden with gazebo. The garden is maintained once a week by a gardener. Unlimited dining, shopping and evening entertainment is available in the vicinity as it's only a short walk or drive to restaurants, bars, clubs and boutiques in the Double Six or Oberoi areas. Examples of renowned restaurants, bars and clubs nearby include Chez GadoGado, KuDeTa, Potato Head, Double Six and La Plancha beach bars.

I am German and have been living abroad for more than 17 years, moving to Southeast Asia after years in the US and Switzerland. Currently, I live in Singapore with my teenage son and work at a university, producing a science magazine and teaching.
The "Cottage @ Seminyak Beach" is my refuge from Singapore city life and I try to come here as often as possible for extended weekends to unwind. If I can't be here myself I am happy to host guests from all over the world enjoying the set-up and location of the villa for perfect tropical holidays next to the beach.
If I find the time I also enjoy Bali's many other beautiful beaches and amazing landscape and scenery as well as the coral reefs and diving opportunities in the wider region, the unique Balinese culture, and the relaxed lifestyle.
The apartment "Bali Studio by the Beach" (the second listing on airbnb under my name) – which is located on the ground floor of the house right next to the Villa inside the compound – belongs to my business partner Mimo. Mimo, who is living on the second floor upstairs of the apartment, is also an expat who has been living in Indonesia for more than ten years and can provide a lot of information and advice on the country and its people and culture.
We are also co-owners of a restaurant – Yut'z Place Restaurant, located in 521 Jalan Werkudara in Legian, the next community directly south of Seminyak – in walking distance from the villa. The restaurant with its international cuisine is a meeting point for tourists and expats alike and a great place to cool down from shopping and exploring the area, or for dinner with friends and family after an afternoon on the beach.
The "Cottage @ Seminyak Beach" and "Bali Studio by the Beach" are locally managed by Mimo. As your host on site, Mimo will welcome you to the villa when you arrive and will be happy to support you with information about Bali or help with the arrangement of car or motorbike rentals or tours.
I am sure you will have a wonderful vacation on Bali — hope to see you in the cottage or studio soon!
