About Maddy and Ton de Bruin

When we spend our holidays in Bali in 2005 ,we came in contact with a real estate developer from Holland.

Within a couple of weeks we decided to buy a plot at the northcoast of Bali and 8 month later we were the proud owners of Rumah Buka. No regret untill today!

Maddy and Ton de Bruin purchased this villa in 2006

Why Maddy and Ton de Bruin chose Dencarik

Due to the experience of staying at the northcoast of Bali during our holidays in 2006, we found out that the location of our plot was an excellent one.

The north of Bali is still authentic,far away from the crowded south. Our plot is located just 5 km west of Lovina Beach, a small scale holiday village directly at the Bali Sea.

It can be reached by 'bemo' public transport and there is still tranquillity and quietness in this area. A splendid place to relax and enjoy the Balinese culture and beautifull nature.

What makes this villa unique

Every day you can enjoy the the murmur of the sea, the song of the birds, the view over the Bali Sea, enjoying the sun or rest in the Bale Benong,sitting in the shade, with a cool seabreeze reading a book or whatever you like to do, while the staff is taking care of you.

Vacation of a lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came here for 8 days and had the best vacation of our lifetime. From the beginning to the end everything was amazing.

The villa is on a quiet beach with amazing views of the Bali sea. The house was set up perfectly when we arrived. Wayan made us always feel welcome and made some of the most amazing meals we could ever ask for.

Pablo was a great tour guide and drive. He showed us around many of the hot spots near the villa. Overall our experience here was phenomenal. We can not wait to come back.

WHAT A JEWEL: I WILL BE BACK !! (4th Dec 2017 to 13th Dec 2017)

  • 5 of 5

I was looking to get away to somewhere that I could relax and enjoy a peaceful break.

By pure luck I found it in this wonderful villa.

In many instances the brochure and the property do not always match.

In this villa the pictures were accurate but the description did not mention how helpful and wonderful the staff were.

I was traveling alone and spent nine enjoyable days here. It was everything I wanted: hassle free privacy, peaceful, quiet, wonderful pool, beautiful garden, thanks Binter, great food, thanks Wayan, dinner accompanied by the gamalan, thanks Komang. I was made to feel as if I was part of the family.

Transportation was not a problem: Pablo was readily available and went out of his way to be helpful. He was great to talk to and was a wealth of information about Bali and the local area in particular.

Some people may feel a little isolated without access to a car or scooter but this did not bother me.

As I said I will be back to enjoy Rumah buka hopefully in the not too distant future.

Simply paradise!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated on the north shore of Bali, away from the crowds in the most touristy areas. It was peaceful and so beautiful. Wayan, the housekeeper/cook, will provide meals during your stay for a nominal fee and they were simply delicious. It's a great place to unwind, lounge by the pool, lounge by the beach, swim, and hang out. We would not hesitate to return.

Ein wunderbarer Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren glücklich und haben jeder Stunde in Rumah Buka genossen. Alles war so wie auf der Homepage und den Seiten hier beschrieben - einfach alles war traumhaft und großartig.

Ebenso wunderbar wie die traumhafte Villa sind die Mitarbeiter:

Wayan ist eine wirklich liebenswerte Gastgeberin die sich vorbildlich um unser Wohl sorgte. Ihre Kochkünste sind sagenhaft. Wir haben in verschiedenen Restaurants gegessen aber Wayan kocht besser! Der fleißige Gärtner pflegt mit Hingabe den wunderschönen tropischen Garten. Das Hochklettern und Ernten einiger Kokosnüsse hat besonders unsere "Kinder" beeindruckt. Wir haben wir uns nie durch seine Anwesenheit gestört gefühlt, im Gegenteil!

Ebenso liebenswert ist der Nachtwächter Komang - ein wirklich sympatischer Mann, dessen Anwesenheit uns nachts das Gefühl geborgener Sicherheit gab. Seine Gamelanmusik hat unsere Abendessen auf wunderbare Weise verzaubert.

Es ist uns schwergefallen diesen wunderschönen Ort und die liebenswerten Menschen hier zu verlassen.

Familie Grüner, Gröbenzell
