MAGIC LIVES HERE!

This was our second vacation to this villa and once again so memorable. I don't know of too many places on this planet where you can experience what this villa offers. If someone does, please let me know! This is a place of peace, tranquility, privacy, the constant rustle of wind in the trees, the 24 hour sounds of nature, breathtaking views, clear starry nights, clouds that hug the mountains and if you are as lucky as we were to have them roll through the villa. After the rain, dense while billowing clouds formed in the valley below. Then, as if on queue by some maestro of nature, they arose from the valley floor to be suspended momentarily as a wall of amorphous white, then rolled towards the villa engulfing everything. We could taste, smell and touch the clouds as they swirled around our bodies as if in an anointing. They came in silence and left in silence and we were left with wonder. On another day, we were visited by a family of ten white faced monkeys playfully swinging in the trees behind the back porch.
Some villas are just beautiful homes. This villa is much more. It is obvious the owner cares for this home and as such you become the recipient of his balanced artful taste, attention to detail and thoughtful appointments. He is available via email for any questions. Elias, the caretaker, keeps the place spotless and the gardens gorgeous. He is a discreet and comforting presence. The distractions of the outside world are kept to a minimum, no T.V., and we thank you, wi-fi and an I Pad are provided. The electronic silence allows you to listen to the 24 hour streaming of nature. The villa and setting is a spa experience for your mind and body. The deep resonance of Balinese wind chimes play softly in the air. I leave this place always with a sense of gratitude for just being alive and so grateful for the beauty of this planet. How often do you get to say that today! It has become a place where I bring my life's treasures-my friends. In this space, the roots of friendship are deeply nourished, we appreciate how short the journey is and rejoice in the moment. This year , friends travelled half way around the world to get here. I think that's an endorsement for the magic that awaits you.
