This affordable, charming 5 bedroom villa is situated about 2 minutes’ walk from Seminyak’s famous Eat Street and about 10 minutes’ walk from the beach. Built in a traditional style, with an imposing high ceilinged, open plan living area and its own swimming pool, this is a great spot for families or a group of friends. To put it another way, Villa Daria offers all the delicious flavours of Bali without the frills.
The property is entered through a private door which opens straight into an attractive tropical garden. Frangipani mingles with fringed palms and guests are led by stepping stones across the grass to the imposing wooden frontage of the villa. This large open plan living area includes a basic kitchen to the rear which is modestly furnished with the crockery, glassware and appliances you need for your stay. Granted, the trimmings are simple but the atmosphere is quirky and most importantly there is a good coffee maker!
In front of the kitchen is a large dining table that will comfortably seat 10 people and at the very front, with views over the mature garden, is a seating area with sofas and a large flat screen TV. This is not a highly styled villa but a homely place to have a fun holiday where you don’t have to worry about the kids ruining the plush cream décor or knocking over expensive looking vases.
The swimming pool is surrounded by a patio and sun loungers and is visible from the wide open terraces and balconies so parents can easily sip a glass of wine in the shade and keep an eye on their offspring gambolling in the sparkling waters. Within the luscious greenery of the garden is a traditional bale which is a great spot for a late afternoon massage or just to sit with a book in the shade.
