Overview

Seminyak Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Attached Unit, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-12) 700 m2 at Beach

This full service villa is in the heart of Seminyak, Bali surrounded by trees providing a bird sanctuary. Enjoy the most fun beach in Bali which is 300 meter walk from the compound. This oasis is near shopping and night life, but the location is one of the few quiet spots in Seminyak. The villa includes 4 bedrooms with queen beds, 4 1/2 baths, kitchen, dining room, office with wifi high speed internet, media room with music, movies, and satellite TV, pool and gardens. There is also a private apartment with separate entrance, bedroom , kitchen, and bath. Practice yoga on a teak deck pavilion or enjoy a massage. Furnished with teak antiques and handmade hardwood furniture. Sleep in natural bedroom with cool breezes and listen to crashing of waves or try 3 spacious bedrooms with AC. There is a staff of 4 that have been with me over 15 years. They provide 24 hour service including laundry, cleaning, child care, and tour guide/driver. Two cooks treat you to Balinese, Thai, French, Italian, and American southern food that is among the best in Bali. All the guests rave about the staff, the quiet location, and the daily ritual of traditional Bali. The compound is new, but uses recycled antique wood from a villa on the same spot..

According to our guests (note reviews), we have the best location and staff in Seminyak. The beach is lovely and quiet in the morning . People are strolling with their dogs, playing with their kids dipping in the ocean, taking early surf classes, small groups are exercising, or meditating in front of temples. The evening is party time. Seminyak is the center for night life in Bali. La Planca directly out front is a popular spot for sunsets and inexpensive food and drinks. There are many great restaurants and clubs along the beach. We are located between Double Six and Gado Gado. Ku de ta and Potato Head are a short walk to the right. Made's Warung is a short walk to Seminyak main street which has some of the best shopping in Bali.

We are one of the few full service villas in Bali providing cooking, shopping,cleaning, and laundry. We offer great tours for families as well as adventurers and spiritual seekers.We have a concierge who can organize tours with our 2 drivers including temples, Balinese culture (dances, gamelon music, crafts), art museums ( like Neka), traditional villages like Tenganan, rafting, bicycling, scuba diving, surfing, water amusement parks, zoos, yoga, spas, cooking classes, etc. Families with children love staying at the beach or playing at our pool. Also, we can arrange great places to stay in other parts like diving in Ahmed, ecotourism in Ubud, or yoga retreats on organic farms.

About Tom Roberts

I am an environmental scientist who fell in love with Bali. The people were in a state of meditation when I arrived. I chose to raise three boys in Bali. Now I live between Santa Fe, Bali, and Nashville. I own the structures, and I have leased the land for 66 years.

Tom Roberts purchased this villa in 1978

Why Tom Roberts chose Bali

We came to Bali and fell in love with a culture that was in a state of meditation. Each village shared and was a permanent culture filled with dance and music. It is sad to see the change. The people of Bali are still wonderful. So I stay. They like electricity for pumping water. The auto is a mistake. Now they fight against pollution and sprawl. Stop plastic. Save the Bali culture. Tolak Reclamsi.

What makes this villa unique

The staff when not working sit together and make offerings. It feels like a Balinese compound, not just another modern villa. You know you are in Bali.

The food is great. Love cooking with Nengah. They bake everything including bagels, bread, pies, cakes, and granola. The food is certainly comparable to the better restaurants. They can shop and provide two meals a day for about $3 a meal a person. You can also shop and cook your choices. Start with exotic Balinese fruit (mango, passion fruit, papaya, sirsak, etc.) American breakfast with homemade jam and bagels, eggs florentine, or fried rice. Try pizza or salad for lunch. Dinner can be Balinese, Thai, French, Southern, Mexican or Italian. Eat better for less.

Wayan, the driver concierge, is a great shopper and tour guide. She has helped start people in business. She can take you to a spiritual healer or ceremony. Take an eco village or adventure tour. Ilu is also a great cook and lovely with children. Spend the day out front on the Seminyak beach which has a good beach break for surfing. Horseback riding is available at Mesari on the way to the beach.

Perhaps only house in Seminyak with beach access and a quiet road to supermarket (take a bicycle) or other shopping. Many restaurants and bars are nearby.

The downstairs studio bedroom and the natural bedroom are designed for breezes that keep them cool year round. There are six air conditioners, but I usually prefer fresh air.

The villa is situated in a quiet spot, but near Seminyak shopping. Ride a bicycle to the market. Great beach with surf, and near the famous night spots of Seminyak.

There are 5 acres of forest next to the compound with many birds. I love the song of the rain bird.

Homely Villa with Wonderful Staff

  • 5 of 5

This older style villa is an oasis of peace in bustling Seminyak. The staff are so attentive and helpful. Tom met with us and explained the workings of the villa on our arrival. There are two bedrooms ground floor and three upstairs. An apartment is attached to the villa where Toms son Morgan was staying. There are two gates to access the property, the back gate is to a laneway which is a short walk to the beach. The front gate accesses a gang which takes you to the Bintang Supermarket on Legian street and the other way to Jl Camplung Tanduk. Take a small torch with you if walking back to the villa at night. We all loved Nangas cooking, she gave us a lesson on some of the traditional Balinese dishes. Ketut is the villa driver who was happy to fit in with our constantly changing plans. Villa is clean and roomy, pool lovely. Do not hesitate to book this villa if you are looking for somewhere quiet and central to stay in Seminyak. Thank you Tom and staff.

Best vacation at the Best Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was more than what I had expected in terms of amenities and service. We rented this house from March 30h till April 3rd. We were 8 adults and 2 kids.

There are 5 huge bedrooms and 5 bathrooms

Huge pool

great kitchen with all amenities

2 wonderful cooks/caretakers, drivers who were beyond helpful and made us feel like home and family.

The villa was very close to the beach and the main street for shopping and dining and was in a very quiet location.

The house was cleaned on daily basis and the caretakers went an extra mile to make sure that me and my family were comfortable

Tom who is the owner stayed in constant touch with me even before my travel and even when i was in Bali. From giving tips for food, shopping, his home, Tom also went above and beyond to make sure that everything was great!

I have already recommended this villla to 8 of my friends and family and hope that they can take advantage of this diamond! as for us we are surely going back in 2 years and we already have a place we can call home

Tropical Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This Seminyak villa was an ideal tropical home away from home for our 8 day stay in beautiful Bali. 5 mins walk to shopping, beach, entertainment and restaurant local precinct.

The attentive friendly staff cooked, cleaned and drove us to a few of the top sights Bali has to offer and couldn't have been more helpful.

We spent a good deal of time relaxing around the fabulous pool and enjoying the luxury of having no schedule to adhere to and will be happy to recommend to friends and family and others.

Fantastic Family Friendly Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week here in July. We are already looking at returning next year. Tom is lovely and was incredibly helpful and genuinely wanted us to enjoy the villa and our stay in Bali. His staff were amazing and cooked us wonderful breakfasts and a delicious Balinese banquet. We were two families with 5 children in total and the villa was spacious with plenty of room for everyone to do our own thing. We loved our walk down to the beach and the younger kids spent hours in the pool. The location was perfect. We look forward to returning.

Tom's Villa- a Balinese gem

  • 5 of 5

Tom's villa in Seminyak is wonderful. It is original, has lots of character and very comfortable. It is in a great location. As this was our first time to Bali, we did not appreciate the importance of having direct access to the beach- it was so easy to get there first thing in the morning before the crowds. The villa is quiet, you would never know you are five minutes away from all the hustle and bustle. Tom is very knowledgeable about Bali and is helpful. His staff are amazing, their cooking was so good that I must say it was the best we tasted in Bali. We will return! Thank you

Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Feeling a bit jaded with the gentrification of Seminyak and the noise, glitz and glam? A little bored with the lack of authenticity in the usual run-of-the-mill contemporary villa where you leave your soul at the door along with your shoes?

This just might be the villa for you.
