Villa Serena is a well established villa which has recently been upgraded to five star standard , and rentals are privately managed by its English owner. The daily housekeeper has been with us for more than 7 years and knows exactly what guests are seeking to ensure that they have a memorable stay.The villa is located towards the southern end of Sanur, about 20 minutes from the airport via the new toll road. Distance to the nearest beach is around 450 metres, and there are upwards of 20 restaurants and bars within 50 to 400 metres.The villa is one of a group of four, each privately owned, set back 50 metres from the main street. Security guards man the main gate 24/7, and each villa is protected by a high wall.Accommodation consists of two bedrooms in the main villa and a third bedroom located in a separate cottage on the other side of the pool. Bedroom 1 has a cathedral ceiling with ceiling fan, kingsize bed, air conditioning, fitted wardrobe in a dressing area, luxurious bathroom with twin basins in a marble bench top, bathtub, spacious shower and an outdoor shower in a small private garden.Bedroom 2 is similar to bedroom 1 but with a 37" TV and a queensize bed; if two people require separate beds we can add a small single bed. A travel cot which also serves as a playpen is also available.The third bedroom has a queensize bed, ceiling fan, air-conditioning and an en-suite shower room.The living area is open plan Balinese style with an attractive high ceiling with fan and an exceptionally well equipped kitchen, a 50 inch LCD satellite TV and a DVD player, and a water dispenser, chilled and hot. Outside there is a 9 metre infinity pool with 6 cushioned sun loungers and a very attractive garden with flowering shrubs which attract the honey eaters, and trees which include coconut, banana, papaya., frangipani and hibiscus.Note that most private pools like ours in Bali are unfenced, which in our view makes them unsafe for small children if they can't swim. Only for this reason do we say that the villa is unsuitable for small children.The villa is staffed by a housekeeper who attends for seven hours a day, but who can be released when she has finished her main tasks. These include daily cleaning, bed making, washing and ironing usually two or three times a week, washing up and helping with food preparation. She will also do food shopping and prepare drinks . If required, the housekeeper will provide breakfast in the villa; the guests select and pay for the ingredients.The housekeeper speaks good English, is unobtrusive and discreet, and is a source of helpful advice regarding your stay in Bali. She will get your money changed at very good rates, or take you to an honest money changer, and also obtain a sim card for your mobile. If you wish to take outings to the various attractions, including the Art markets at Ubud, the Elephant camp, or a tour through the paddy fields to the volcano crater, we know a good local driver who speaks English, is very knowledgeabjle and charges reasonable rates.The local beach has a number of beachside cafes as well as several big international hotels, if you prefer international dining, and two watersports centres. Power cuts are a frequent source of annoyance in Bali, but not at Villa Serena where we are in a small minority of private villas having a fully automatic standby generator, gas powered in order to minimise noise.On arrival in Bali guests are met at the airport and escorted to the villa, where they will be welcomed by the housekeeper and shown around the villa and given the welcome pack of food and drinks.

The Bali region

Sanur is half an hour away from the hotspots around Kuta, so is a more relaxing destination, but still with in easy reach . It is also a very safe location, as incidents affecting personal safety and security are very rare.

There is a huge number of restaurants and bars, and several 4 and 5 star hotels. The last two years has seen several developments of good quality shops.

At the beach there is a wide variety of water sports, parasailing, jet skis, water skiing, diving and fishing trips in the local waters and at Lembongan island. For less than a two dollar taxi ride the full range of facilities in Sanur can be reached.
