The villa has a walled garden for privacy and the first floor looks out across the fields and has glimpses of the Indian Ocean. The beach is a regular setting for traditional Balinese ceremonies.
Early in the morning the small boat houses at Nelayan come alive as the local Balinese prepare their catch after a night’s fishing on the reef. This is not a tourist attraction, it is part of their normal everyday life and if you are awake early enough you can go down to the beach and barter for fresh lobsters, fish & crabs, delicious seafood which can be prepared on the house BBQ just the way you like it.

A long rectangular shaped lounge has cozy seating and a TV with surround & DVD player only (no satellite TV). At the far end is the dining area which has its own set of double doors that open onto the garden. When open and depending on the prevailing wind allows ocean breezes to cool the room.
