Villa Daria - Villa 5
- SQM 400
Villa Daria is built with old-style Bali panache featuring marble floors and a magnificent wooden façade but despite its grandiose appearance the property is simply furnished and affordable. This makes it a great spot for a fun family holiday or for a group of friends sharing.
With five air conditioned, double bedrooms and a private pool in a mature tropical garden, there is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy this little slice of paradise. This property has all the charm of Bali’s best, right in the centre of trendy Seminyak, only 10 minutes from the beach, and at a fraction of the price offered by most of the pack.
The charm of this authentic villa is in the rambling tropical garden, framed by the fronds of coconut palms. This lovely space has all the medicinal qualities of Bali which simply invite guests to relax. This includes a free form swimming pool surrounded by a patio with loungers and a traditional bale encircled by shady trees, creating an alluring space for an afternoon nap. There are pockets of grass and plenty of space for the kids to run around and play.
The towering entrance to the villa has traditional prayer umbrellas on either side of a beamed wooden frontage which creates a cool cavern under which the open plan living area sits. To the rear of this is a modest kitchen with all the appliances and crockery you might need to whip up a meal. There is a large 10 seater dining table and to the fore a comfortable seating area and a large flat screen TV with views directly over the garden. This area is cooled by ceiling fans and open to the elements along one side.
Another great feature of this villa, which makes it a family favourite, is that parents can keep an eye on the children from the large upstairs balcony or the open fronted living area downstairs. Toast your holiday with an iced drink and watch your family enjoy the freedom of the tropics.
All five of the bedrooms are of a similar size with air conditioning and double canopy beds. Although a little dated in their furnishings they are cool, clean and comfortable. Each has a large bathroom with a huge corner bath with a shower. Three of the rooms are upstairs and have access to a spacious, shared balcony with seating at both ends and a flat screen TV.
This charming property is managed by a villa manger and is staffed by daily housekeeping and garden and pool maintenance so you don’t have to worry about anything except exploring the island and having a great time.
Located in the heart of Seminyak on Jalan Drupadi, next to the excellent restaurants Kilo Kitchen and Lacalaca this villa offers great access to all the pleasures that the area has to offer. Only a couple of minutes’ walk away is Eat Street/Jalan Laksmana with its fabulous range of designer boutiques, cafes, outlet stores and spas. In the other direction about 10 minutes leisurely stroll is the beach, a great spot for Boogie boarding, surfing or catching one of the epic sunsets celebrated on this coast. Seminyak is also a prime jumping off spot to day trips to other areas of the island and tours are easily arranged to Uluwatu and Ubud or further afield to Lovina and the forgotten north.
