Each morning when the swell is up, surfers flock to the point off Pabean Village to catch the waves. The property , part of the Pabean Beach Estate, sits right on the point with commanding views of the action over the black sandy beach. As the morning sun rises, sit on the terrace by the 20m infinity swimming pool or in the shade of the balé (gazebo) and watch the locals pulling snappy re-entries on a right hand break or use one of the villa's body boards to have a go. In the distance Mt Agung and Nusa Penida can clearly be seen as can, on a clear day, Mt Rinjani on distant Lombok Island. A sprinkling of fishing huts with their pretty banca boats sit just over the adjacent river mouth where there is safer swimming away from the strong currents. In the evening and at weekends the villagers spill out onto the beach.
Part modern, part traditional The property is beautifully laid out to maximise the sea views. Sliding Bangkrai doors and windows, Sirep roofs, teak terraces and touches of rattan on the furniture give a strong local wood feel enhanced by detailed stone carvings of Balinese scenes. The interiors are exquisitely finished with Thai silks of rich greens, purples, browns, and oranges. Intricate embroided elephants can be found throughout. With 4 bedrooms, a basement games room including darts and a pool table and given its beachfront location, The property is ideal for a pampered family vacation. Chefs, butlers, maids and 24 hour security guards, all charming and immaculately dressed in traditional attire, are included with the villa. A driver and car is available for an additional cost but is recommended given the villa is quietly isolated. A car is not essential though as the chef will do all the provisioning on the guests account for a small fee; and spa services and the like can be brought to the villa. All you need to do is relax.
The property is right on the beach facing out over the Badung Strait with Nusa Penida in the distance. The villa is on a small reefed headland with a swell popular with early morning surfers. One of the many rivers which flow down off the mountains runs adjacent to the property. The villa is part of the Pabean Beach Estate - a small estate of eight plots named after the local village - down a small track a kilometre or so off the main Denpassar–KlungKung bypass. Within the immediate vicinity is little except a few sleepy local houses and a tiny temple spotted amongst the rice terraces, fields of tapioca and coconut palms. Nearby is the tiny village of Ketewel, while Sukawati (famous for its cheap local market) is a few kilometres inland on route to Ubud, the cultural and artistic heart of Bali.
