“Fabulous Villa, Fabulous Staff, Fabulous Location - we are definitely coming back!!!!”
Reviewed September 17, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were in Bali for a Girls long weekend away and loved our time at The Sea Shanty. Clearly so much thought and time has gone into the design and functionality of this 4 bedroom Villa. Beautifully maintained garden and pool. The staff were lovely and so helpful. The place is a mere stroll to one of Bali’s most beautiful beaches as well as numerous fabulous bars and restaurants. What more could we have asked for!
We will definitely be back and will bringing the kids next time as we saw how perfectly set up & equipped the place is also for kids with plenty of books, toys and they even offer to erect a safety pool fence just for your stay if you would like!

Recently our extended family stayed at Sea Shanty for a special family occasion.
The villa is situated on a lane very close to The Four Seasons Hotel.It has four bedrooms that very spacious with beautiful bathrooms and the bed linen is fresh white cotton...laundry taken care of Daily.In every part of the Villa you feel at home...its peaceful and the couple that are care taking and caring for you are so hospitble..they could not do enough to help us...organising a car and driver and directions to restaurants..cooking beautiful meals and making sure our every need was met.We had children to cater for and the pool was fantastic for them with easy entry in and out and shallow pool they could play in.A safety fence was erected so we could relax without the worry of toddlers going in without supervision.
Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to relax and enjoy your lovely Villa .

“Exceptional staff & beautifully designed villa”
Reviewed June 12, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at the Sea Shanty over Chinese New Year. It has been beautifully renovated with real attention to detail - pool toys, spare insect repellant, children's books etc are available, as well as a fully kitted out kitchen. I felt totally at ease leaving my 1 year old with Lina while we took the older children to Uluwatu.
It was very easy to stay in the villa, Lina is an excellent cook and her husband Supri and Tino were wonderful with our boys.
The only downside is that once you get out of the villa it isn't as pretty as other parts of Bali, but if you want somewhere for RnR then it works well.

Thanks for your kind words. We are very pleased you had a lovely holiday. It is certainly very different to the lush countryside with rice paddies in Ubud and other volcanic mountainous areas of Bali. We believe it makes for a good contrast to that part of Bali, being ideal if you like beach holidays and being close to the water. Come again soon!

“Luxurious home away from home”
Reviewed May 26, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Sea Shanty was such a blissful getaway - I didn't want to leave! It felt like a home away from home - a fantastic combination of luxury and casual comfort. The photos are exactly like the place. The villa is exquisitely designed and furnished, the gardens are gorgeously maintained and that private pool just beckons! The location is great - only 15 minute drive from the airport (non-peak time), just a minute walk to the beach and a couple of minutes to cafes, restaurants, spas etc. And the staff are so helpful and friendly, and every utensil/equipment you could want is there. It was just the relaxing escape I was looking for away from bustling Jakarta. Highly recommended, particularly for groups with children who are looking for child-friendly accommodation and location. Thanks so much for having me stay!

“The best of both worlds”

person found this review helpful

I stayed at The Sea Shanty for ten days in August 2014 together with my family, including four boys. The Sea Shanty is a beautifully and thoughtfully designed villa tucked down a quiet road no more than a few hundred yards from the beach. We loved being so close to the sea, restaurants and water sports while at the same time being able to withdraw to the haven of quiet and tranquillity (bar the boys) that is The Sea Shanty. The resident staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. We had a great time.

I stayed at Sea Shanty with my Girlfriend and our 4 children. The house was beautifully decorated and styled. The layout was sensational, flat lawn with a pool that the whole downstairs could look out onto. It was the essence of indoor and outdoor feel at it's best. We had beautiful fresh meals prepared and everything we needed to know was at our fingertips.
It really made our Bali holiday as it was easy with style. Thank you Sea Shanty team!
