A Haven of Peace and Quiet, a long way from the Tourist haunts with a beautiful vista east and west along the north coast of Bali
A 3 bedroom villa constructed in 2010 with a 100m beach frontage. The beach is a public beach, with black volcanic sand. Immediately outside our villa the beach is rocky, leading to a small coral reef. Because we are on a small promintory the tide sometimes deposits flotsum and jetsum on the beach - which we try our hardest to keep clean. Own infiniti pool and jacuzzi. Wonderful staff to keep the house clean, take care of the garden and pool, provide security and cook for you (if you would like). Absolute serenity - with plenty of Balis most wonderful sights and places a short drive away.
I designed our villa myself and enjoyed the experience of guiding it through construction. I have been involved in many very large scale developments, but this one meant more to me than any other - it is very personal. In Arabic, "Jaa Bali" means - "because I felt like it" - for me, that seems perfect!
We are somewhat remote, being at the end of a 2km lane from the main road. This provides the convenience of nearby local shops and restaurants - a 20 or 30 minute drive away - whilst being directly on the beach away from any hustle and bustle. Our garden has a 100 metre frontage directly on to the beach. A little walk along the beach it becomes very sandy and easy to swim. Directly outside our villa is a rocky outcrop, which becomes a coral reef a little swim away and the fish life is quite interesting.
The two downstairs bedrooms have outside bathrooms, to enjoy the feel of the sea air - and one has a view directly to the sea. The upstairs bedroom also has it's own bathroom and has a beautiful balcony with a view along the coast towards the east - enjoying the most beautiful sunrise anyone will ever experience.
We designed Jaa Bali to be the ultimate place to "get away from the city hastle" - this is a place to chill and read, get to know yourself and your friends and family better than ever before. If you're looking for nightclubs, this is not for you.
Our guests will have total and exclusive access to the whole villa, grounds and pool - with our attentive staff to help make this a special stay.
We do not live at the villa or even in Bali. Our guests can enjoy their "home away from home" whilst being respectful of the neighbours, neighbouhood and the property.
We are one of a small enclave of villas, right on the beach, quite close to 3 very small hotels, each with a very simple restaurant. We are well off the "beaten track", with a strong association with the local village, which we are gradually becoming a part of.
Being a couple of km from the main coast road, it's useful to have transport available to get around. The nearest town is Seririt (a short 10 minute drive), which is very local. The nearest tourist town is Lovina - a 20 minute drive, where you will have access to shops, restaurants and early morning dolphin sighting trips.
Local fishermen will walk along the beach right in front of the villa and spend most of the day fishing with their poles in the sea. They will sometimes sit on the beach to cook their lunch. Simple, friendly, local fishermen - please treat them with respect - this is their village, we are the tourists !
Modesty, respect, consideration - have fun, but not at the expense of others or the local community
The host and welcome were exceptional, Mercy had dinner waiting, the house was beautifully prepared, the drive from Denpassar with Putu was so enlightening and entertaining, I am so happy that my first trip to Bali started at Ja 'a Bali, what a way to start a holiday, I had no idea what to expect and the experience far out did anything I could have expected.
Quite possibly the best Airbnb I've ever stayed in, and I've been in a bunch. The villa was exactly what I wanted: right on the beach, remote, quiet, and utterly gorgeous. More importantly, the place was maintained by Mercy, who made this trip a dream. She's responsible for taking care of the house, but she also cooks authentic Balinese and Indonesian food, and - let me say - her food is amazing. AMAZING. We didn't want to leave. All other food we had in Bali paled in comparison to hers. Think of staying here as staying at a private restaurant with a bed and a pool. We'll definitely be staying here again when we come back to Bali!
Our stay at this villa was a pleasure.
The thing we enjoyed most was the great cooking of Merci. Everything was well planned.
Keep in mind the transfer from the airport is around 3 hours. If you can choose, try to arrive in Denpasar early to see something on the ride to the villa.
This villa is perfect if you want a quiet week in a beautiful area in Bali.
We absolutely loved our stay in Steve’s villa. It is quite a ride from the airport (about 3.5 hours with the last 10 minutes on a bumpy small road), but it is worth the trip! The villa is beautifully located at the beach and has every comfort you’d need.
The housekeeper Merci, and the rest of the staff, made us feel at home and took very good care of us. Merci is a lovely lady & a fantastic cook ☺, especially her Balinese food and kroketten. We enjoyed lots of wonderfull meals at the villa and she helped us with booking some tours.
If your looking for peace and quite in a beautiful surrounding this is the place to stay!
Good house though the roads to the house are a little bit hard to go. Great pool with ocean view, beautiful house, so friendly Steve who helps to answer a lot of questions, it's good experience. Thx Steve.
The villa was lovely, the staff were very friendly and helpful, Putu the local driver was safe and on time, Mercy was a great cook. Great place to get to know yourselves again.
What a beautiful villa indeed! We spent 9 days in Jaa Bali and we found a little paradise. The villa is even better than the pictures on the website. What made our stay even better is Steve's staff. We were picked up in Singaraja by our great driver Putu (we stayed a night there because our flight arrived late afternoon and we wanted to be able to see the scenery going over the mountain to seririrt). Putu is absolutely fabulous; we hired him for our entire stay and he took us to fabulous places and guided us through it. He was also a great help with the local helping us with any questions we had for them. anyway Putu became a good friend and we miss him.
When we arrived at the villa, we were greeted by Mercy which was our great housekeeper and a fabulous cook, Kadek, our security guard (very nice man who work from 7pm to 7am every night during our stay and helped us with anything we needed). Mercy made us a great Balinese dinner and offered us some wonderful fresh juice upon our arrival.
Every morning, we had some great breakfast that Mercy cooked for us. She is a wonderful person, very attentive to details with a great sense of humor. we really had a few laughs together.
Komang was very sweet and very helpful also. Our rooms were very clean every morning and the entire house was spotless.
Made was our gardener and took care of the pool every morning. the garden was beautifully maintain and Made was very helpful with all the questions we had for him regarding all the plants and trees.
We had the best experience renting from Steve. everything was very easy and he was fast and very helpful answering all our questions. I do recommend this house to anyone. we really found our little paradise.
Thank you again Steve, Putu, Mercy, Komang, Made and Kadek for 10 fabulous days of our life.
We miss you all and will be back soon.

A family man, married for more than 30 years, with two wonderful daughters, both graduated and now working and living in Sydney. A recent addition to our family is our wonderful grandson, who is destined for a life of travel and adventure. We've had the privilege to have travelled quite extensively and, when we visited Bali, fell in love with it. This eventually lead to us buying a beautiful plot of land, right on the beach on the north coast, and building our little dream house, which I designed myself. Our hope is that many others can enjoy what Bali has to offer, through staying at our property for a wonderfully relaxing time.
