Why Eric and Surya Trules chose Padangbai
We built this beautiful 2 unit home for ourselves and friends as an exotic and comfortable getaway from the busy Western world in the middle of a rural village right near Bali's still-pristine East Coast beaches. It has air con, wifi, a beautiful pool, a kitchen for cooking, a bathroom, and a staff that helps with everything. It's near enough to all the amenities of Padangbai (shopping, groceries, bars, restaurants), and within an hour drive from the tourist centers. If you want exotic, private, natural Balinese beauty away from the tourist hordes, come stay with us!

Beautiful secluded retreat in Padangbai
This was just the thing we needed to get away from the resort scene and get some real R&R (rest and recuperation). We used the White house not just to spend lazy days relaxing by the cool pool but as a home base to explore nearby areas of Bali like the island Gili Trawangan (fast boats leave from Pandangbai). It's about an hour and a half from Ubud (via scooter, not recommended for those without experience or an adventurous heart). The home is well kept, air conditioned living/bedroom, a kitchen with the essentials: small refrigerator, cold/hot water to drink we used for our morning coffee or ramen style cup of noodles, and propane burners for cooking, though we took advantage of the many restaurants in town. There's also Wi-fi.
The property is off the beaten path surrounded by banana trees in the hills above Padangbai. We rented a scooter to get around town. Made, the property manager on-site was very helpful, he helped us get fair prices to Gili island, scooter rental and his recommendation for finding a great tasting place for Luwak coffee was spot on.
We really enjoyed our Bali stay at the White house.
Hidden Delight in Padanbai
This is an amazing gem tucked away in a quiet location surrounded by beautiful plantings with a delightful private pool. The local property manager is available to assist in making any type of arrangements. He is very resourceful and is a genuinely great person to know. The houses are in a quiet, secluded compound with interesting neighbors, cows with wooden bells that get walked by the gate each morning on their way to pasture,and beautiful butterflies. You will be comfortable here~ we loved our stay and highly recommend it.

Our holiday in Padang bai in the White House was very nice. The house is very nice and clean, very near to the Forrest. It's around 20min to the small village by walking but with the scooter you can arrive in 7-8 min.
Our manager Made and his brother cared good about us. We also choosed them for our tour to ubud. Made have a lot of experience as a tour guide, he know much nice spots.
I'm sure this was not our last trip to padangbai and also would come back to visit the White House.

Our Villa is on the beautiful East Coast of Bali, in 'Mimba Village', just outside of Padangbai, Bali's main ferry hub. There are beautiful natural beaches for swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, sunbathing, etc, and many local Hindu-Bali ceremonies, almost daily. The wonderful Bali Safari Park, one of SE Asia's best animal parks with a spectacular 100 person, live elephant theater show, is just a 15 minute drive away. Besaki Temple, elephant trekking, and 'dive walking' in Labuan are also nearby.
Our manager, Made, can arrange for day tours, overnight trips around the island, or anything else our guest wants or needs.
