Experience the magic of Bali from the comfort and privacy of your own antique teak house from East Java. This style of house was usually reserved for the nobility or wealthy merchants.
Get Wild About The Wildlife
Entrance to the 150 year old house is from steps at the side which lead up onto the long verandah and through large double doors. The verandah is perfect for lounging and watching the rich bird-life including Java kingfishers, coucals and cranes or perhaps a beautiful sunset. A monkey may occasionally pay a visit.
Main Living – Dutch Colonial Style
The rustic main house of over 100 square meters has a spacious loft-like feel with massive carved pillars and a stunning ornate ceiling centre-piece. There is a king-size bed with a dressing area behind carved panels. A dining table seats 6 and there are several sofas and seating areas. A simple kitchenette along the back wall has a small electric hob and a fridge. Furnishings are a mixture of antique and reproduction art deco colonial style and the glazed floor tiles are hand-made Dutch colonial style from Java. The semi – outdoor bathroom has a copper basin set in an antique door and a brass rain shower. There is a flat screen TV with cable channels, and a DVD player. There is natural cooling with fresh breezes from the river below.
More Bedrooms downstairs
Downstairs are a further 3 bedrooms with single beds in each. – ideal for friends or larger families. Two have ceiling fans. A small bathroom with a shower and toilet is accessed from the pool terrace. We are about to convert the middle bedroom to an indoor bathroom with bath-tub, which can be accessed by the 2 bedrooms on either side. When that is completed there will be 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds in each .Sliding glass doors open directly onto the pool terrace. There is no pool fencing so these rooms are not suitable for young children. The infinity edge pool has beautiful views and is sterilised by silver ionisation, not harsh chemicals.
