“Best Family Villa in Bali!!!!”
Reviewed 18 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!

“Beautiful, peaceful, amazing villa - we can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 16 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Ah the Sea Shanty! What a wonderful villa in a fab location :)

We loved every minute of our stay at the Sea Shanty. Lina, Supri and Iman made my family and I feel incredibly welcome and they really looked after us. Lina's food is incredible and although we ate out a couple of times at the local fish restaurants, we couldn't wait to sample more of Lina's cooking!

The villa is perfect; it's peaceful, well equipped and beautifully decorated. We felt so relaxed and at home. The location is fantastic. A short walk will take you to lots of bars and restaurants along the beach where you can sip a cocktail, feast on fresh fish and watch the sunset.

If you're still deciding on whether to stay here or not, just book it. You honestly won't regret it. We can't wait to go back!
Thank you for a wonderful stay!

“Balinese Luxury Escape”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'The Sea Shanty'. The villa was absolutely stunning, very clean and fresh, friendly and helpful staff, and such a tranquil setting.
We loved the location, very central to the beach, beautiful bars and restaurants, and the Four Seasons Hotel just a short walk away for that perfect sundowner.
But the villa itself was hard to leave, such a relaxing space, with a divine pool area and luxurious attention to detail.
We would definitely return - for longer..

“Bali at it's most blissful”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A fabulous and beautiful place to call home for a holiday - I wish we could have stayed forever! Great for a group of mums getting some time out, but I would certainly bring my family here too. What a serene place in such a buzzing part of Bali. The pool was devine, the rooms so peaceful and luxurious, and the staff were wonderful making us feel right at home.We loved the convenience of being right by the beach, and close to some great food and drink spots. Thank you for such a perfect HOLIDAY!

Thank you for your kind words. Delighted you enjoyed it. Must do some more Mum's trips there without the kids too! We agree - it is also great for adults only trips, because of its close proximity to awesome bars and restaurants - most within walking distance. Come again soon!

“Fabulous Villa, Fabulous Staff, Fabulous Location - we are definitely coming back!!!!”
Reviewed 18 September 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!
