The villa sits in the serene area of Umalas, in the middle of the golden triangle of Seminyak, Kerobokan and Canggu. It is located at the end of an alleyway (a "gang" in Indonesian), not far from a river. Beautiful high trees surround the walls of the villa, which gives you full privacy.
The villa is composed of 2 traditional, vintage houses, connected by the pool and the garden. The bigger house is called a joglo: it is a traditional Javanese house, with a pyramid-like roof. One part of the joglo has partitions, this is where you can find 2 bedrooms. The rest of the joglo is fully open on the garden, with the living room, the kitchen and the dining table.
On the other side of the garden, you will find the smaller house of the villa. This wood building is called a gladak. This is also a traditional, vintage Javanese house transplanted into my Balinese property. This gladak is a world of itself, as I have transformed into a big bedroom, with its en-suite bathroom. Imagine how happy your teenagers will be to have their "own" house within the villa!
This bedroom is located in a gladak, an antique Javanese wood house transported from Java and set up at the other side of the garden. The whole gladak had been transformed into a comfortable, air-conditioned bedroom. This room offers a very charming Indonesian ambiance, with its traditional ceiling and its wooden floor.
The 2 bedrooms are located in the Joglo, the bigger house of the villa. The term "Joglo" is often used to refer the distinctive type of Javanese roof with rising central part of roof supported by four or more main wooden columns. Just like in traditional Javanese houses, the bedrooms are located in the dalem part of the joglo, i.e. the inner sections with walled enclosure.
These bedrooms are very similar one to another, with a modern feel. They are comfortable, with air conditioning. The ceiling is very high, airy, in the traditional Javanese style.
Each of these bedrooms have an en-suite, semi open-air bathroom. The living room, the kitchen and the dining room are located in the joglo, the bigger house of the villa. In this traditional Javanese house transplanted in Bali, you will be able to share great moment with your close ones. This large roofed space, with no partition, is open on your private pool and garden. On the other side of the pool, you can see the smaller house, the gladak.
The living room offers two comfortable sofas, a flat screen TV, satellite TV with a dozen English-language channels, an Apple TV to see movies and shows from iTunes, high speed wifi, a collection of DVDs and a stereo system. Relax in the sofas, while keeping an eye on your children who are playing in the swimming pool. At night, watch a DVD while enjoying the cool breeze coming from the garden. If you feel like it, you can turn on the powerful fans attached to the ceiling.
The swimming pool is 12 metres long and 4 metres wide. There is a semi-circular shallow pool where you can play with little kids. The rest of the pool slowly slopes down up to 2 metres deep.
