Amazing beachfront villa

Our family had a great time at Bali villa ocean. The views were amazing. Constant sea breezes meant it was always nice and cool. Located in a nice village where everyone is very friendly. Ducked in to Seminyak for a morning for a little shopping. Staff made delicious and very cheap meals.

Amazing Ocean View

Charming, rustic style accommodation.
Staff were friendly and very very helpful.
The owner was ever so helpful and quick, whenever we needed anything or any excursions organised. We had the private chef cooking for us during our stay. Presentation and quality of the dishes were of the highest standard.
The property is on the outskirts of Canggu. Absolute beach front, ocean view. The view is absolutely amazing. Would recommenced to friends.

Perfect peace and tranquility

An amazing 10 day stay that was exactly as promised! This Bali villa is in one of the most picturesque vantages in Bali. You will never want to leave. You’re spoilt with the peace, the tranquility, sublime and unobtrusive service with tradition on your doorstep. From every angle of this beautiful property you can while away the hours as a slightly voyeuristic participant in village life witnessing fishing boats heading out to sea, children playing in the ocean, surf fishermen, surfers and even traditional cremation ceremonial scattering of ashes to the sea.
‘Rumah Oye’ is not your typical polished Balinese villa and thank heavens for that! It has retained its original character whilst also offering a very modern, sleek infinity pool that seems never to end.
I can’t rave highly enough of all the staff….they were unbelievable. Nothing was too much trouble and the food…always a surprise…was so delicious and plentiful.
There is nothing to fault….leave the rat race of Kuta and Seminyak behind and head to Seseh….it’s only 30 mins by car for some nightlife….but I seriously doubt you’ll want to go…
Do take a walk around the village. The local people are very friendly, they love a chat and even if they don’t speak English they always smile and make you feel welcome….however there are 2 geese who seem to wander around in the early morning (near the temple) and they did call my daughters bluff….the most inhospitable members of an amazing community (but still we smiled!)
I travelled with my 5 children (ages 14 to 22) and there was ALWAYS something for everyone to do so no fear that its too isolated.
Oye is very lucky to have found his little piece of Paradise and I felt so privileged to spend some time and share it. I know I have personally thanked his staff but publicly I will again. They were absolutely beautiful.

Breathtaking view

The yard/gardens/view/pool are absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. You have your own personal sunset spot right there over the pool and headland as the girls are making dinner for you.
The accommodation as such is fairly basic but extremely clean and quite honestly you don’t spend a lot of time inside at all.
We have two small children so didn’t use the the second house or the little extra sleep room attached to the open air bath room at all, there was more that enough room for the four of us to sleep comfortably in the bed and day bed in the main room (both with mozzi nets).
The villa is in a fairly remote area so 5 days there was just perfect for us before we moved on to our busier Bali. The owner doesn’t like too many people at the villa, its definately not a party house but an amazing place for the kids to run in the huge yard, play in the pool and cruise up the beach to meet the locals.
The staff were all lovely and helpful, remembering they are from the village and English isn’t perfect.
The girls organised for massage at the house and it was amazing, they also booked drivers for us a few times, all lovely people also.

Beautiful ocean views !

Rumah Oye is a simple villa located in the most beautiful spot in Seseh. The views are absolutely amazing. You will be sitting on the terrace every day watching the ocean for hours at end.
We traveled with young kids, and they loved the spacious garden and swimming pool. Desak, Putu and Made will be taking very good care of you during your stay. Desak’s cooking is amazing and she will be cooking for you from the traditional Balinese kitchen – we had a surprise every day which ranged from Nasi to Gado-gado to Tempe…
The villa is located within walking distance from the famous Echo Beach if you want to hang out with more people.
What we found very nice is that it felt as if we had contact with the local people, in the village, on the beach whilst they are flying their kites, and amongst the beautiful green rice paddies on the way to Seseh. A much more cultural experience than staying in Seminyak.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with absolutely amazing views, then this is the place to go!

En harmonie avec l’esprit balinais

Je ne redirai pas combien cet endroit est magique puisque c’est unanime! j’ajouterai simplement, mais c’est essentiel, que l’esprit de la villa (et de l’équipe qui prend soin de nous) respire l’essence même de Bali. Tout est harmonie; la nature nous entoure généreusement, elle impose son rythme et on se laisse glisser dedans, en paix et en joie. On se ressource, on puise l’énergie douce sur ce coin de terre vrai et captivant. Rencontrer les villageois et participer à leurs rites en toute humilité, nos 3 filles et nous-mêmes y avons puisé un enrichissement exceptionnel.

True Escape

I was overwhelmed on entering Bali Villa Ocean by the pure beauty of its location. Uniquely sitting on its own headland surrounded by beaches on both sides. The days were spent surfing at Echo Beach and relaxing by the villa pool overlooking the ocean. We were fascinated and mesmorised by the numerous variety of finches that visited the pool for a quick splash and drink. From the villa you can watch the local villagers go about their day fishing, play on the beach or holding ceremonies. At night all you could hear was the sound of waves crashing against the rocks. It was the most peaceful villa I have ever stayed at. The staff were very friendly and gave us great insight into local culture. The food was outstanding being true balinese cuisine. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a true escape and wanting to experience the real local delights of Bali. A place I will never forget.

Paradise in Bali

Villa Ocean is a beautiful property. Very comfortable with lots of space for chilling. We stayed here wanting a property away from the hustle and bustle with a great view.
The staff are lovely and the property is well maintained.
We stayed here with our kids (twin 2 year olds) and my mum. The kids stayed in the main house on the bed near the main bed. The smaller bedroom off of the main house would work for older kids. We also had the guest house.
Stay here if you want an amazing view, great pool and service. You will need scooters or a driver if you are staying a while to get out. Note the property is a traditional style and quite basic but the view makes up for it!

Charming house in a fantastic location

The house, the garden, the swimming pool, all show an absolute sense of good taste and attention to details. The house is located on a nice black sand beach (with good surf nearby) near a fishermen village and away from the touristy spoilt areas of Bali. No direct access to beach means having to walk around.
Service is absolutely dedicated and charming.

Site époustouflant

Site exceptionnel en bord de mer. On reste des heures à regarder les vagues déferlantes et le coucher de soleil. Maison de style balinais où l’on vit à l’extérieur, au milieu d’un jardin tropical coloré parfaitement entretenu. Le service est assuré par une équipe de jeunes balinais discrets et compétents. La cuisine est délicieuse et les jus de fruits frais de papaye, mangue et ananas, un vrai régal !

Truly Outstanding

Right after entering the property you feel like in heaven.
The garden is superbly maintained, the house has an incredible charm and the view… is to die for.
I would strongly suggest that you take most of your lunches and dinners at the villa. First, no restaurant can give you this unique environment. Second, the food is delicious and the dishes are beautifully presented.
I have one enormous regret: I only stayed 3 nights.

Paradise

What a magical place! We had the most amazing week here. You totally switch off and relax from the minute you walk in. The staff are enchanting and there is nothing they can’t help you with. We can’t wait to return.

Best beachfront rental in Bali

If you are looking for a true Bali experience and a true beach/oceanfront villa, Bali ocean villa is what you need. Don’t expect luxury features like led screens or other useless gadgets, this is not what Bali is about and Bali ocean villa neither.
What you can expect however is a unique 180 degrees view on the ocean, a wonderfull infinity pool overlooking the beach and perfectly aligned with the dramaticl sunsets and a wonderfull staff, perfect examples of Balinese warm and simple hospitality.
We have been to Bali a dozen times and always to different villas. We have never been disapointed but Bali ocean villa is the first one where we will go back without an hesitation.

Beautiful scenic location

This traditional villa is set on a small cliff right on the water and the views and serene location make it the ideal location for someone who wants to relax enjoy the views and take time out. The surf is right at the front door and the grounds are well maintained.
The villa is quite basic but beautiful and includes simple indonesian fare prepared for you by the gentle staff. It is not fine dining nor can you order what you want but the food is delicious and local.
we stayed as two couples and the smaller onsite Bale was quaint, quiet and a pleasure to stay in.
I would recommend it if you not planning on going further than canguu but if you want nightlife or the bustle of seminyak this is not the villa for you.

Bliss

Our stay here was heavenly! We stayed at this villa with another couple and it was once of the best holidays we have ever had. The location is incomparable, in a beautiful village far from the crowds with the most spectacular views, grounds and an infinity pool that feels like you are about to swim into the sea! The staff are delightful and very accommodating. We asked for local food for the duration of our stay and were not disappointed. We had also chosen the villa for the surf, as you can just walk down the stairs to the beach for great surfing just north of Canggu and Echo Beach. We organised to have massages every day and they were excellent. It is perfect if you want a quiet and peaceful break, although it is only about 20 minutes drive into Seminyak if you want restaurants and shopping and you can organise a driver through the villa. The villa and guest Bale are lovely and authentic; perhaps you could describe it as rustic. This was exactly what we were looking for, but it would not suit those looking for 5 star modern luxury that you would find somewhere like The W. It has a completely different vibe – one that I thought was perfect. The only other thing to note is that if you are a very light sleeper you might have some issues with the sound of the surf as you go off to sleep as it sounds like you are sitting on the beach ( which you just about are!). We loved it and will be back.

Secluded Paradise

If you are looking for a villa on a rocky outcrop – a temple on the property and waves crashing on both sides – this is the place!
It is beautiful. The views are unmatched and it is like sleeping on a ship you are so close to the crashing waves of the ocean. You will wake in the morning and look up and down the beach from your amazing bedroom! it is perfect for a couple or a small family !
The staff will look after all your needs and it is a perfect and effortless service. They will amke you feel at home. The food is beautifully prepared and you will eat looking at one of the best views in Bali.
The villa is in a quite village at Seseh beach with friendly people and great beaches. You can relax and get away from the bussle of Bali but be close enough if you need to visit for a quick day of shopping.
This is a special place!!

Unforgettable

We stayed at Villa Ocean during the last five days of our ten day trip to Bali.
We came by our own rental car and could find the villa easily following the directions provided by the owner.
The area is wonderful. No mass tourism anywhere to be seen and still close enough to Seminyak.
We occupied both villas and found both of them really cosy.
The outdoor bathrooms adding to the special experience.
The views are stunning and the staff is really friendly and keen to help. The food was nice and the communication was easy enough. Although they are not fluent in English they understand quickly what you want from them.
So all together an unforgettabel experience.
We will definetly be back!

180 degree ocean views while sitting in bed

Our family had the opportunity to stay at Villa Ocean in October 2010. I had spent quite some time online looking for a place which would immerse us in the culture and life of the Balinese. We definitely found it at Villa Ocean. The Villa itself also has some history to it, sitting on a promontory, once aiding in the defence of the island, thus the unbelievable views. We did not have a car however Oye arranged transport for us before we arrived and for the duration of our stay. We were promptly greated at the airport upon our arrival, transported around the island over the following week and dropped back at the airport when we reluctantly had to leave. Distance from Kuta or other tourist spots such as Ubud was never an issue. The food was wonderful and the staff polite and friendly. The location offered privacy and the opportunity to surf directly in front of the property. A walk along the beach (to the right) takes you past various temples, including a large temple complex which extends out into the sea. You will not be surrounded by concrete walls here. Your stay will be peaceful and relaxing and when you sit outside on the porch watching the sun set over Java you will truly wonder how fortunate you were to have found this hidden jewel.
Liked best: The view, privacy and staff
Liked least: Having to leave

Oceanside luxury

Hospitality at its best in this beautiful private oceanfront villa

Magnificent

Bali Beach Ocean Villa is heaven on earth. The location is magnificent, right on a point overlooking the ocean. The negative edge pool is beautiful. The villa is very comfortable and the staff was fantastic. Meals are the highest quality and we recommend it very highly. We stayed there two months and would return in a minute.

Un ptit coin de paradis

Havre de paix , bonheur sur terre, pour tous les amoureux de Bali.
A recommander mais avec modération, au risque qu’il n’y ai plus de disponibilités pour les habitués!!! 🙂

Simplement magnifique

La maison offre une vue à 180° sur l’océan.
Après un long et agréable petit déjeuner bercé par le doux chant des vagues, vous nagez dans la piscine à débordement et vous avez le sentiment que l’océan vous appartient.
L’apéritif dans la piscine à l’heure du coucher de soleil est magique! Des couleurs à vous couper le souffle. Le personnel de la maison participe activement à faire de ce séjour un moment de rêve, de détente, d’évasion.

Maison, situation, accueil .. : plus que parfait !

Nous avons réellement passé une semaine de rêve :
– propriétaire et accueil : parfait (merci Oye)
– maison magnifique et très bien entretenue, situation idéale (très calme sans être trop isolé)
– environnement : plage à droite, plage à gauche, mer à 180 ° et village de Seseh très agréable et très accueillant, … top !
– personnel sympathique et toujours à l’écoute
A conseiller sans aucune modération

Attention: addictif !

S’il y a bien un paradis sur terre, c’est là qu’il se trouve!
L’océan à perte de vue, la plage pratiquement déserte, la piscine à débordement, la villa.. Royal!
On n’entend que le bruit des vagues qui relaxe et apaise.
Le staff est excellent. Lors de notre séjour le jardinier/pisciniste avait déjà pris soin de tout balayé et de tout nettoyé avant notre réveil ! La cuisine était simple, très saine, toujours variée et très bonne! Nous n’avons eu en 16 jours aucune répétition!
Les chambres/salles de bains ont été rangées et nettoyées tous les jours. Un service impeccable, avenant et surtout très discret.
Nous avons aussi profité des massages. Très bons massages fait sous les ombres des arbres dans le jardin. Cela nous a fait énormément de bien.
Tout est fait pour vous mettre à l’aise et que le séjour soit parfait, relaxant et surtout inoubliable!
Jamais nous n’avons eu envie de repartir dans un lieu déjà connu, mais nous sommes tous unanimes: nous repartirions de suite si nous le pouvions.
