“Perfect villa for a family holiday”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The Sea Shanty fulfilled all of our expectations during our recent family holiday in Bali. In particular, this was due to the amazing caretaker couple who looked after our family of 5 Adults and three children as if we were their own family. We are a family of three generations who wanted the intimacy that a resort does not offer. The proximity to the beautiful beach at Jimbaran is also a huge bonus.
The villa presented exactly as the photographs shown on Tripadvisor.

“Amazing villa”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Villa is a superb surprise when you open the front door into a oasis. Some great rooms, fun bathrooms, great kids space upstairs and tv room for them to relax

Location is great and only a couple of minutes walk to beach and restaurants. Try Cuca and Fat Chow, great food and kids really well looked after. Also went to Waterbom, which is a great park and brilliantly done. Also for white rafting we used Bali adventures, little bit more expensive but so much better then the rest ( be ready for the stairs back up)


Lina and family really looked after us, did not cook as per others as we had just spent a week after another villa being catered so made most of all the restaurants.. She was brilliant with kids and house was really looked after

Only reason I did not give 5 stars is that there is a really noisy school just next door, from 7am in the morning there are tannoy announcements and loads of noise.

Be wary as also mosquitos are really active here so need to make sure you and children constantly covered

Thanks for your review! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Its a shame you didn't get to experience Linas cooking because she is a fabulous cook. You will have to come back again! Re the school noise, yes, we chose the location to build on knowing we were next door to a school, and decided it was better to have kids noise than traffic and nightlife noise - the lesser of two evils. And since the noise is only short lived, we decided we could live with it. But I will follow up with the staff on the 7am start - I thought it didn't start until 8am, which I have always liked so I can do Yoga from 7am before it starts. Will check that out so we can warn other guests if that is the case. Re the mosquitoes, yes, that is always a problem in Bali. Fortunately we are not near any water catchment areas, so Dengue is not a problem. However we still fog and spray every week. But thanks for the feedback. We keep doing everything we can to eliminate the critters. Come back and stay again! Cheers Rachael - Owner

“We just keep coming back, it's our absolute favourite villa in Bali!”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have been to Bali over 10 times in the last 7 years, and we have now stayed at The Sea Shanty 3 times (in the last 3 years). We have 3 kids (aged 6, 4, and 2) we just can't fault The Sea Shanty - it's our home away from home.
We love the location - just a short walk to a golden sandy beach - which is perfect for kids, as it has soft gentle waves - it's so calm my 2 year can swim there with confidence.
We also love the villa property - it's very easy living, and we love the style - particularly the kitchen - which just makes you want to stay in or cook ... or have the famous Lina cook for you.
Finally the staff are AMAZING, Lina and her husband and son we're are like our Bali family now - they love seeing the kids, and nothing is too much trouble. Lina's English is perfect, and it is just so relaxing knowing that the staff are there for you.

Wow, what a place! it was all so perfect, spotless, peaceful, relaxing, and the staff were so friendly and helpful, we felt thoroughly spoilt.
Everything you need is at the villa and it is well maintained. Lena cooked for us most days and what a treat that was from a beautiful breakfast, fantastic lunches and superb dinners, traditional Indonesian cuisine at its best!
A holiday I will never forget..............Thank you

“The most family friendly Home away from home in Bali”
Reviewed 15 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

this is my second time staying and we loved it even more. The villa is so well set up for a family, plenty of space and the room size is more than adequete. The kids bunk bed rooms are gorgeous and the beds are so comfy! The villa staff are the cherry on the top, with their friendly service, meals, helpfulness, they take care of you so well! We love lying by the private pool and enjoying walks to the beach. can't wait to go back!

“Best Family Villa in Bali!!!!”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed 2 nights at the Sea Shanty with our 2 kids (3 & 8 yo) and didn't want to leave. The villa is huge and airy and 100% family friendly. We LOVED the kids bedrooms with cozy bunk beds and the chalk board wall, as well as the bathroom with kids amenities and a gorgeous octopus mural above the bath. The beautiful decor and mix of modern and antique is perfectly done and a testament to the owner's excellent taste and interest in the culture and history of Indonesia. The location of the villa is also fantastic! Just a 2 minute walk to the beach and some of the best seafood restaurants on the island. However, the thing that really makes the Sea Shanty one of the best villas we've ever stayed in is the staff. Lina, Supri and Imam are very special people and made us feel totally at home. The kids were instantly comfortable with them and it's easy to see how much they care for the villa and the guests.
Sea Shanty is honestly a cut above the rest!
