Candidasa Villa Rental Photos and Description
Villa Rindik - Candidasa
* Villa Rindik - the Best Value - In Town - Ocean Front Villa - in Candidasa *
Although classified as a B&B; 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.
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 suroundings 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 specialty 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 - www.baliinsighttours.com
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 !

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, and then we also have 180 deg ocean views at the back - bliss !
