Candidasa Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa Rindik is the ~ Best Value ~ Ocean Front ~ Directly in Town ~ Villa

Please note that you will have the whole bottom part of the Villa to yourself during your stay. We DO-NOT multi book the rooms - you will be the only guests staying here at the villa for your holiday :-)

Geoff & Louise Alderson from Melbourne, Australia - welcome you, and wish you a pleasant stay. We sometimes stay in the upstairs section of the Villa (with separate entrance) at different times of the year (other times we are back in Australia), but we assure you of your privacy. We don't use the pool nor enter the villa while guests are staying. If we are here at the villa at same time as you, we look forward to meeting you at some stage during your stay.

Villa Rindik is approx 1.5hours drive north (2 hours max) – up the east coast from Bali’s International and Domestic airport, and is located at the south west end of the Village of Candidasa.

Free airport transfers are available if you stay 7 days or more, if less than 7 days it is US$35 each way, or if paying locally, it is Rp350,000 each way.

The accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms - all bedrooms with air-conditioning.

Room 1 is a large king (2 x 2 meters) with en-suite bathroom.

Room 2 is a standard king (1.8 x 2 meters) with en-suite bathroom.

Room 3 is 2 x large singles (1 x 2 meters) that can be put together to malke up a king size bed as needed.

Room 3 has a bathroom next to it, just no direct access from this 3rd bedroom.

The kitchen and spacious lounge / dining / reading area is all open plan, with 4 large ceiling fans.

Look out through bi-fold doors to the very inviting pool which has a large courtyard setting complete with tropical flower beds and pots.

At the end of the main pool area, step up to a elevated section, which has a gazebo with table and chairs plus sun beds that can be moved in or out of the direct sun as needed.

Beyond the gazebo is your ocean view, which can be seen all the way from the lounge room inside.

Our bright and happy staff are ready and waiting to look after your every need.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a nice cool towel and refreshing tropical fruit drink, together with the sound of Rindik music (hence the Villa name), which is a combination of traditional Balinese bamboo and flute music, while you settle into the comfortable surroundings of Villa Rindik. This traditional music can also be played in the morning while you are having your breakfast.

Speaking of breakfast, this is included in your stay at Villa Rindik, be it 3 days, 7 days, or more. It can be served at a time that suits you, either in the dining room inside the villa, or at the gazebo (where you can see local fishing boats), while watching and listening to the oceans movements over the pebble beach below - bliss !

Candidasa has a lot to offer the discerning traveller, from beautiful rolling hills on one side and ocean views on the other - it is picture postcard perfect.

We have an on-site villa manager in charge of the day to day running of the Villa plus 2 other day time staff that will be available from 7am through to 3 pm – and 1 night time security guy between 9pm and 5am.

Please note we are on call 24 hours should there be an emergency.

Looking up into the hills, you can see old farming terraces (once used for peanut and corn growing), then with half a turn of your head, you are looking out across the ocean, where you can easily see Nusa Penida & Nusa Lembongan, and also Lombok far off to your left.

We have a range of CD's and DVD for you to use (it's an eclectic mix, so we hope we have something for everyone), plus we also have satellite television and radio service (Indovision - which has both local and International services).

There is also a great mix of shops, from your simple sarong / singlet / t-shirt and shorts type of shops, to many speciality art / craft type shops with paintings, wood carvings, stone and silver items.

Tie this together with great food outlets for all traveller types, from simple Warung food (Nasi Goreng / Mie Goreng / Sate etc), through to many mid range cafe's / restaurants and then the higher end eateries, making your mouth water for anything you like.

Right across the road from your Villa is the Candidasa Bakery, where you can get your traditional Indonesian food (at very reasonable prices), together with assorted cakes - yum !

The bread you have with your breakfast in the morning is from this bakery.

There are a few mini-marts in town, one just across the road to your right, which stock just about anything you will need – drinks, snacks, toiletries etc.

There is a few live music venues in town, the closest is the New Queen Pub & Restaurant is just a few min walk from the villa (across the road / down the street to your right as you head out the gate of the Villa).

You will also find 5 ATM’s now in town, 1 being just across the road to your right, along with cash money changers (there is a cash money changer at Go Go's silver shop, across the road between the bakery and the mini-mart, and more in the middle and other end of town as well).

The Villa is within easy walking distance of everything in the village / town of Candidasa, - you will not need a car at all to explore the town - which is basically just one long road.

Tours of the local area, or any other parts of Bali can be arranged through our own tour company -

Bali Insight Tours. You can have a look at tour possibilities at -

or speak to the staff.

If there is anything you want during your stay, you just have to ask, and we will be sure to help out.

We look forward to welcoming you to Villa Rindik in the very near future !

** Please note that all government taxes are included in the rates shown on this site, so there is no hidden extras / no hidden surprises **

** We don't charge a service charge either, if you are happy with your stay, you can show your personal appreciated directly to the staff if you wish to do so - totally up to you :)

About Geoff & Louise Alderson

Our dream has always been to own a property in Bali, and to be able to spend more time here - we have achieved this with Villa Rindik ! We are from Melbourne Australia with 3 grown up children that also like to come to Bali when they can.

Geoff & Louise Alderson purchased this villa in 2012

Why Geoff & Louise Alderson chose Candidasa

After a few years of looking on and off, we spotted this on the internet, made contact with the owner, and the rest is history. The location of the villa is in town, so not far to walk at all to many different cafe's / restaurants / shops etc. The town of Candidasa is great ... just 1.2 km long, you can easy walk from end to end, ocean on one side, hills on the other. We also like the fact that others can come to Candidasa, stay at the villa, and enjoy it also.

What makes this villa unique

It has a traditional looking Balinese front, which we love, then more modern inside. The villa feels like a home - all our previous guests have told us this themselves, and wish they could stay longer (some have actually stayed a few times). The pool is a very good size (8m x 4m), and then we also have 180 deg ocean views at the back - bliss !

We booked the Villa not really knowing what to expect - from the onset the communication was fantastic.

Everything was made easy. Enquiries to booking to payment to transfers. I was somewhat concerned about how we would recognize our driver and just put it out of my mind and the day before we were due to be collected a stunning smiling face arrived via email so we would know who we were meeting.

Attention to detail at its best and the view is to die for. We enjoyed our stay so much are back there again 6 weeks later for Christmas.

The staff are so attentive and polite and really it's perfect............can't recommend the Villa Rindik more than that.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Shonagh for this review, greatly appreciated ! We do see service as a priority. You, our guest, need to feel comfortable right from the start, from your first enquiry all the way through to you saying goodbye at the end of your stay ... it is your holiday, so our goal is for everything to be easy for you, no stress, and for everything to go smoothly as possible :-) As you noted, we always send a photo of Nengah (our villa manager) to anyone that is being picked up, be it another villa, a hotel, or the airport (and if airport a meeting point map) ... again just another small thing we do to again make our guests feel like they are meeting someone they know rather than a stranger. And yes, our view ... tis nice for sure ... we are very lucky to be here and have it, and then to let others enjoy it while staying here :-) As for the staff (they are really our friends), we could not be more lucky to have such a great group of people working with us. Thank you again for the review & recommendation, we look forward to having you back again in December ! Best regards, Geoff & Louise plus Nengah, Ni Nengah, Wayan, Nyoman (night time security) and part time Yuni.

Just perfect heaven

First of all, thanks to Nengeh, Yuni, Wayan for the greate takecaring. Second of all thanks to Geoff&Luis for sharing this villa with us. And now the review. If you don´t like the tourist hype, but still like to have comfort around you, this is it. Not only is the vila just perfect for relaxing, Candi Dasa offers everything you need. It is a good spot for trips to the island, but it offers everything you need. You have plenty of restaurants there, bars and activities around. We were four adults (35) and two four years old there for 20 days and we just didn´t get bored. We did a lot of diving as well, but we went for trips to the countryside - and that is just beautyfull. If you go for diving just go to Candi Dasa, it is the best spot to be, as you are just in front of the best spots around, and in the middle between Nusa Penida in the south and Amed and Tulamben in the north. And if you want to experience real Bali, and not the "Kuta" style Bali, go for Candi Dasa and Vila Rindik. Terimah Kasi again :)

Owner's Response: Hi there, and many thanks for your wonderful review :-) We will make sure when we get back to Bali (in about a month from now) that we will read out to our team your comments. I think you said it all, Candidasa is in a really good location for many things, be it countryside trips, diving, many great options for eating or just spending time relaxing around the villa, by the pool, or up at the gazebo looking out across the ocean. But, if you want a BIG shopping day, you can drive to Kuta for that day, shop, and be back at the villa for sunset drinks (if you like). We are glad to hear you all had a great time ! Hope you can all come back again some day :-) Best regards, Geoff & Louise Villa Rindik Candidasa, Bali

A Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 great days in Villa Rindik.

We enjoyed our breakfasts "a la carte" on the terrace with the beautiful ocean view, the gentle breeze and the sound of the waves - this was our favorite out place!

Our attentive and always helpful driver Nengah organized a lot of wonderful trips for us (snorkeling and tracking) and he not only drove us but also told us about the Balinese life and traditions. Over the week we grew very fond of him.

The only thing worth mentioning is the (Mountain) Gunung Agung. The climb was to hard for us and we can only recommend this for proficient mountain climbers. It was an experience anyhow.

Unforgettable will be our last evening at the Jimbaran beach with a delicious Seafood Candlelight Dinner.

Many thanks to Ni Nengah, Wayan, Yuni and Nyoman, for making tasty breakfasts and keeping our house clean and save.

Special thanks to Geoff for his extensiv help with Malaysia Airlines in order to getting our „lost“ luggage back. Without him we would still be waiting on it.

We had a wonderful time and can highly recommend the Villa Rindik!

Absolute bliss, we didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay! We could not have asked for more! It exceeded our highest expectations with surprises at every turn! We knew breakfast was provided but little did we realise the staff enter quietly in the morning to prepare it for us and even cook us the most delicious pancakes you could ever imagine and then clean up! Served every morning in the gazebo overlooking the ocean while we watched the fishermen return with their catch in their colourful boats! Nothing was too much trouble! We availed ourselves of the car and driver available and had our day tours organised for us meeting our every whim. Even our boat trips to go fishing and snorkelling left straight from our back steps using local boat owners and the money going straight to them and their families rather than tour operators! Every thing we could possibly want was available in the villa! CDs,DVDs,games, books, maps, tour information,pool towels, filtered water, you name it the villa had it! So spacious and comfortable! We only had to walk across the road, up the road or down the beach to find somewhere lovely to eat! The pool was crystal clear, the villa spotless and were both kept that way daily! We felt like we were leaving friends when we left! Thank you Nengah our wonderful safe driver and tour planner and go to guy for any help whatsoever, Ni Nengah, Wayan and Yuni for cooking for us and attempting to teach us how to make those amazing pancakes and taking such great care of us and the villa and pool!

Also a great big thank you to Geoff and Louise for sharing this wonderful villa with people wanting to experience something other than large touristy hotels and resorts! Your villa and your staff whom we know are more like your family are wonderful and we will certainly be back!

Great experience in Villa Rindik!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (5 adults with 1 baby boy) stayed in this lovely villa from Jan 27 - Feb 3 for our Chinese New Year vacation, and it turned out to be our best Chinese New Year ever!

The villa locates in the quite Candidasa, not like the crowded tourist areas in Bali, this is a perfect location for families just want to enjoy the beach and the sunshine. The staffs and owner of the villa are so friendly and considerable. We brought our 2.5 years old boy, and they prepared everything for us, including the baby seat, car seat, and even the baby bed. We highly recommend this lovely place for families want to spend qulity time in Bali! :)

Owner's Response: Gong Xi Fa Cai ! Many thanks for your review - greatly appreciated ! We are both very happy that you had an enjoyable holiday, especially as you chose Villa Rindik for your Chinese New Year celebration location. We also thank you again for inviting us to your new year celebration dinner - it was our first time to celebrate this occasion, which we enjoyed very much. The staff past on their thanks as well for your nice review, and your positive comments you left in our guest book :-) Regards, Geoff & Louise Alderson

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (2 couples) stayed 3 nights at Villa Rindik in early June. We were picked up in Kuta by Nengah (manager), who made us feel so welcome even before we had arrived.

The staff were always there when needed (with a genuine bali smile), and almost invisible when doing your own thing.

The villa was every bit as good as the pictures, and had more information than anyone would require. The outlook from the gazebo was brilliant.

Nothing was too much trouble, from a bit extra for breakfast, to filling the fridge with Bintang, to organising a boat to go snorkelling, or to white sands beach for lunch. Nengah organised in house massages for the girls (better and cheaper), and a scenic drive with a visit to a local village.

The local restaurants we tried (there are heaps) were all great and so cheap compared to Kuta. Try the Mie Goreng at the Bakery if you like Indonesian (best I've had).

I haven't written a review before, but felt compelled.

Our only regret is we didn't stay long enough, but it was our first trip to Bali & Lombok. Next time a week or 10 days at least.

Geoff and Louise, thanks for your hospitality, and please pass our comments on to Nengah and staff.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words - we appreciate you coming and staying at Villa Rindik. As this was your first time to Bali, we were VERY happy to show you a side of Bali that some people seem to miss out on seeing, the east coast area of Bali, where Candidasa is located. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. Seems to be a recurring comment we get from the people that stay here at Villa Rindik - "no enough time". We look forward to having you come back some time soon, and will pass on your best wishes to Nengah and the rest of the team. Regards, Geoff & Louise - Villa Rindik

Welcome to Villa Rindik - Candidasa - Bali

Villa Rindik is located around 200 meters on the right (on the beach side) on the main road just past the Candidasa welcome arch as you are coming into Candidasa from the south west.

If you are coming into Candidasa from the north east, as you turn the bend and enter into Candidasa, we are at the other end of the village / town and will be on your left - again on the beach side of the main road.

Just across the road from the Candidasa Bakery.

Gogo's Silver Shop is also across the road, which is just next to the Bakery. There is also an ATM in between the bakery and the silver shop.

You will see a sign close to us for Le-Zat Restaurant - this is just about next door, to the left as you face Villa Rindik (there is just a block of land between us and Le-Zat).

White Sand Beach is just a 15 min drive from here, heading further north east. You can also get a boat right from the back step of Villa Rindik around to White Sand Beach, out to the small outcrop islands or Bloo Lagoon (closer to Padang Bai) for snorkelling.
