Our kids loved it!

Maria’s place really feels like staying at a five star hotel. It is beautifully clean, very well laid out/designed and has the luxury of the indoor setting (ie aircon and no mosquitos) with sliding French doors if you want to open it up. The garden is lush and the pool is really magical with its hanging vines and waterfall, our kids loved it. It was great having the TV and pool toys and Maria gave us a high chair and cot. It’s a 5 minute walk to Finns and the vip cards were enormously helpful. Of all the villas we stayed at in Bali we would come back here.

Thank you so much Maria for having us to stay! You were the most incredible Hostess and your Villa is absolutely stunning. If you love Bali and you love Canggu then you must STAY HERE! The Villa is HUGE! Perfect for a family or three couples or group of friends. The biggest plus for me was the absolutely private pool! The housekeeping and security staff are excellent, giving you plenty of privacy. This is also one of the best locations, central and close to Canggu, a short hop to Umalas or Seminyak. The Villa is really modern with well thought out finishing touches (great Wifi) TV channels and really conveniently located next to a small supermarket, several cafes, and restaurants (including the funky Parachutes bar and Restaurant opposite). PS The fact that you get FINNS VIP Club Access and Beach Access is ONE IN A MILLION. This was the coolest XFACTOR about this place. We used the Gym almost every-day. If you stay here, make sure you use these passes they really are a great benefit you don’t get with many other Villas! We cannot wait to return! Thank you Maria 🙂

Home away from home

This is our second stay as a family of 5, with teenage children; and it won’t be our last! Large 3 bedroom/bathroom clean villa, with a decent sized pool, set amongst beautiful gardens. It is located within walking distance to everything you need, to make your stay easy & stress free. Less hectic than Seminyak &/or Legian, with rice fields giving you the true Balinese feel. There are lots of eating options within a 1min walk of the villa, as Canggu plaza is literally right next door. Our favourite places to eat are Parachute, Savage Kitchen, Made’s Warung & Milk & Madu which is a little further, but only a 10 min walk away. Bank/money exchange also close by, as is a 24hr medical centre. Canggu Deli has all your grocery needs, including fresh bakery options for snacks. Discounts given at Beauty Centre located right next door, full body massage is highly recommended. Utama spice is also across the road, one of my favourite places to shop in Bali. Best part about this stay is the VIP Finns membership. We love the splash park which is only a short 5 min walk away. Great place to relax & have a cocktail by the pool-kids love the slides & lazy river. The only negative about this stay is we couldn’t stay longer as it was fully booked! Thanks again to Maria & the team at Villa Merah, who not only made my stay, but also my birthday a memorable one! We Will definitely be back!

Great Villa With Great Pool

Great Villa with great pool and Access to Finns Beach club and Splash which was brilliant for our young boys. If you are travelling with small children just note there are no internal doors to access the other bedrooms. I would suggest taking baby monitors or do what we did which was to use an app which allowed our phones and iPads be the baby monitor. Our boys are 4 7 and 9 so we definitely needed to keep an ear out for them. There are great amenities with bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Would love to go back and highly recommend this great villa and host. Maria is extremely responsive and very easy to organise things with.

Beautiful villa in a great location. Kids loved the pool and spent most of their time in it. Awesome food places close by. Parachute for breakie and Savage Kitchen for dinners and Canggu Station is a great wee market. All of these are within 2min walking distance.

Beautiful and Spacious

We are a family of 4 (including 2 teenage girls aged 19 and 16), The villa is beautiful and spacious and having the Finns guest cards was a bonus, especially with teenagers. It was also a great place to go and have a drink and watch the sunset and was only a 15 minute walk from the villa past rice paddies. The villa is located in a quieter area of Canggu (compared to the other parts such as Echo Beach) but within easy walking distance to the beach and a number of cafes, restaurants and a deli. It is also easy to get to Seminyak by car. Maria was very helpful throughout the whole process including check-in, check-out and also giving us some tips on local restaurants and tours. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

Great Experience

We had a really great experience, Maria was a thoughtful and wonderful host who pulled all the stops to make sure we were taken care of and comfortable.  I made the booking in the evening before our arrival in Bali the next day at 10 a.m., she arranged a free airport pick up and early check in for us. The property was perfectly located. The place was well decorated, spacious and lovely for our small family. We enjoyed our meals together at the table overlooking the swimming pool, the spa recommended by Maria with a generous discount. The free Finns VIP access was a great value for our family. On our last day, we had a late check out and was offered to enjoy the Finns Club until the late afternoon. I highly recommend Villa Merah.

Fabulous Villa with gorgeous pool and stunning gardens. Bedrooms were spacious and immaculate. Comfy beds and lovely linen. The kitchen was an excellent size with a huge fridge and lots of bench space. Additionally the living space accommodated our family of five comfortably. The best thing about Villa Merah was the proximity to everything Canggu has to offer. The Villa owner Maria is everything a guest could ask for. Nothing was too much to ask. She and Novy (vIlla manager) organised our family scooters and helped us with locating restaurants etc. The FINNS beach club cards were an added bonus! Thanks Villa Merah, we will be back!

She also provided us with some baby stuff, mosquito repellents and some fruits and food for our first morning. Special thanks for Finns cards, it was a huge bonus to our stay! The villa itself is true to photos, nicely set, very pleasant pool, spacious and clean. There are some street noise but from the other side you’ve got a great location with walking access to some very nice cafes and shops, supermarket and Finns recreation club (with a free entrance to their water park, btw!).

Villa Merah is impressive as soon as you walk in. Large, spacious & clean villa set within beautiful gardens & a massive pool. The villa is in a perfect location, with cafes, restaurants, supermarket/deli & money changer all within proximity; next door actually! The villa comes with a VIP Finns membership which is Amazing! Splash park is a short walk away & we all had so much fun there-it caters for all ages. Our VIP Finns beach club experience was also fantastic, so lucky to have it included with the villa. The villa staff are friendly & maintain your privacy, keep the villa in perfect condition. Owner Maria very responsive & easy to deal with. I can’t recommend this villa enough. Our 5th visit to Bali & our 1st visit to Canggu; & all I can say is it won’t be our last! It’s like your home away from home, your own little paradise. (Even has a washing machine!) cannot wait to return to this little piece of paradise.

Unbeatable Location!

Villa Merah is by far the best Villa we’ve ever stayed in. The location is unbeatable, a minute walk to supermarket (Canggu Station), a few meters away from nice restaurants, also a good stroll to the Beach. The villa is sparkling clean, bathrooms are huge, the pool is a perfect size, the kitchen supplies everything we needed, a laundry machine and the best part is… the Nespresso machine!! Maria, you’re the best!!! Thank you for being so kind, generous, attentive and informative. I can’t say enough about you and your team. You were having your own family holiday but still managed to reply and accommodate our queries (some silly queries too). The kids loved the flamingo float which you managed to get one for us last minute. They fought over it endlessly. We weren’t happy to leave your beautiful villa, but promise to come back for a longer stay, and hoping to meet you in person next time. THANK YOU!!!

The Perfect Canggu Villa

Our first visit to Bali and so glad we stayed in the Canggu area and at the Villa Merah. So perfectly positioned that you may even question the need for a scooter. As a family of 4, scooters weren’t really an option and we wanted a location that provided everything we needed within walking distance. If you do need to travel, there are always taxis passing by or you can utilise the Villa recommended driver for trips. We did this for our transfer from Ubud and a trip to Waterbom. The Villa itself is well appointed with everything you need and fast Wifi. The beds were comfortable and everyone loved having their own bathroom. The pool is large and deep and a welcome relief from the humidity. Just walk out of your room and dive in! The Villa comes with Finns VIP passes that are able to be used for your entire stay. You can live that Instagram life you never knew you were missing at Finns VIP Beach Club or make use of the gym and water slides at the Rec Club. The included passes added real value to our holiday. You are surrounded by excellent restaurants and the Canggu Station supermarket is well stocked if you want to self-cater. We ate at Parachute, The Trattoria, Suksema, Joglo, Peloton Supershop and Milk and Madu. We didn’t have a bad meal or indeed an average one, anywhere. Great value too. Maria was great to communicate with and made everything easy. The only downside is we’ll now judge any future holiday accommodation against the Villa Merah as it’s now the benchmark. Had a wonderful 7 days at the Villa Merah and hope we have the opportunity to return.

Lovely Villa!!

My children and I had a lovely stay here over the New Year. The villa is close to a small supermarket and a few restaurants and a quick walk over to Finns. The staff are wonderful, villa is well taken care of and a great place to relax! Prepared breakfasts were great and the staff are very helpful, eg I asked if they could get some more mangoes from the market because they were much nicer than those in the supermarket and one day they picked up some sate for us too. There were a few island issues with electricity over the period of our stay but as soon as we contacted the staff, everything was fixed quickly. The pool is great if you can’t be bothered to go out, we stayed here a couple of days as one of the children was ill and the rest of us enjoyed it. Not too much in the sun! Lovely to sit outside after dinner and just look at the pool, garden and local geckos. It’s quite a way from the beach but there is a shuttle at Finns which takes you to their beach club so you don’t always have to haggle with taxi drivers! The inclusion of the passes for Finns was a real plus for us, the children loved the Splash park and it was close enough to just pop in for a couple of hours. All in all, we had a very enjoyable stay in the villa and would definitely recommend!

Maria was a great and communicative host at every step of the way, from prior to our arrival and up to our departure. She was very accommodating, helping us out with our last minute change in group numbers and going out of her way to make our trip as seamless and as memorable as possible. The location of the villa itself was at the edge of Canggu and Seminyak, making it an ideal location for those wanting to escape the complete tourist trap that is Seminyak, whilst not feeling entirely isolated from the hustle and bustle.

Great Location – Great Accommodation!

My stay was with my husband and two other couples for four nights. Our rooms were nice with comfortable bedding and clean bathrooms, the lawn and pool area was well maintained and housekeeping who attended daily were lovely. We also appreciated the Finns membership provided with the accommodation – we ate at the restaurant at Finns recreation centre and received a discount off the bill just for showing the card (I think it was a Thursday promotion). Also, airport pickup was arranged through the villa prior to arriving and was there waiting on both occasions (we came in on a separate earlier flight than the two other couples). The location is away from the main hustle and bustle of Canggu but it was fantastic. There is a grocery store around the corner (for water/snacks/alcohol etc), a couple of cafes/restaurants and spa right next door – we ate at all and attended the spa and they were all great. Also – for money changing – if you walk down the lane way by Starbucks you can exchange money at the bank if you don’t want to venture further up the road to find a slightly better rate on the street. The Joglo is a minute or so walk down the street and seems to be a very family friend venue and Parachute across the road has a nice vibe. We had absolutely no problems in getting transport from the villa – taxi’s go past the front door – or if you walk to the intersection near the grocery store you can easily pull over a private driver and agree on a price if you need to fit more than 4 people in. Maria was great to communicate with in the lead up and during our stay – and it was nice to have a friendly contact to ask questions before arriving. Overall, if you are looking for a nice villa to stay in Canggu that is in a quiet area but still within walking distance of restaurants/shops – I recommend staying here! I’ll be back!

Our Bali Home

I stayed at Maria’s lovely villa with my husband, 2.5yr old twins and my parents-in-law this July. It was a lovely villa and just like the pictures. The rooms are a great size and all have comfy beds, fans, air con and ensuites! The kitchen and lounge area has big sliding doors to open up and enjoy inside/outside living or you can close them up as a retreat from the heat and mosquitoes. The kitchen is super well equipped, there is a drinking water provided and even a washing machine (which was very handy with toilet training toddlers!). The pool is lovely and the staff kept everything super clean. The villa is super well positioned in Canggu with Joglo cafe less than 200m down the road (has a great play area for kids) and a 10 min stroll from milk and madu (also great for kids) and a whole bunch of other restaurants. Head in the other direction (toward Seminyak) for warung dukah (or find them on Facebook for delivery of delicious food to the villa)! Across the road is parachute restaurant which has some lovely breads, pastries and coffee! There is a well stocked supermarket round the corner and a courtyard with a few nice restaurants! There is also a spa next door! I really couldn’t recommend this place enough. The host, Maria, was lovely and super easy to deal with! Had all our needs covered! I would go back to our “Bali home” tomorrow!! If only I could!

Luxury Villa next to Canggu Square

Our family of 4 had a lovely stay in this spacious, spotlessly clean, well maintained villa in a convenient and fun location. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large, beds comfortable, and the small garden is very pretty. Having the pool is great to cool off after a hot walk home from Berawa beach. Wifi was reliable. The kitchen is well appointed but didn’t get a lot of use thanks to the close proximity of a large array of international restaurants and cafes, and Warungs. Finns Beach Club waterpark and gym is 5 minutes walk, and the beach about 10 minutes, although the lack of footpaths can be a little off-putting with kids. There is a small supermarket next door. The villa staff were fabulous, friendly, polite, and accommodating. Gede the driver was also superb, reliable, helpful, and arranged other drivers when he wasn’t available. You could have a nice holiday just hanging around Canggu, the clubs and beaches, if you didn’t want to travel (the traffic was bad, but the drivers are amazing). Just to note for young families – each bedroom locks separately from the main room and compound, although there is 24hr security for the complex. I can highly recommend this relaxing, delightful villa.

Canggu Station is 200m away, this is a pretty good supermarket, bottle shop and deli with everything that you’ll need.

It was clean and didn’t suffer from the usual wear and tear you see in with similar Villas, it’s very well looked after. The kitchen is FULLY stocked, with everything you need to cook for yourself and it includes a blender, toaster and a Nespresso machine. The bedrooms are a great size and the bathrooms and beautiful. Relaxing is easy in the living room, or in the garden around the beautiful pool. With the sun always shining, so a perfect tan can be created 🙂 We will be back, for sure!

Included was the Water Park and Gym. Kids club, Bounce and Strike Bowling complex were discounted extras that were definitely utilised.

Our stay at Canggu Villa Merah was fantastic, the villa has all the necessary facilities and very well-maintained. Additionally, the accommodation is strategically located near Splash Waterpark Bali in which we had access to for staying in Canggu Villa Merah. There are also many lovely cafes and nice restaurants nearby as well as a spa next door. The size of the pool in the villa is fitting and well-looked-after. We also loved the comfortable bed that is equipped with mosquito net which we felt was very considerate of the owners.  Overall, our experience at Canggu Villa Merah was amazing and we hope to be back very soon.

Great location with facilities

Canggu Villa Merah is a fantastic place to stay and I highly recommend this Villa to anyone visiting Bali for the first time, or even if you are a frequent traveller. The Villa is spacious, clean, has friendly staff, is perfect for relaxing but most of all the location is very convenient. You’re basically a stones throw away from Canguu Plaza, which has some great restaurants/cafes, spa/massages and supermarket too. I will be certainly staying at Canggu Villa Merah when I come back again to Bali.

Great Villa, Helpful Staff, Convenient Location

We stayed at Canggu Villa Merah as two couples for 5 nights to attend a wedding in the area. The Villa was spacious, well laid out, clean, with friendly staff. The pool and surrounding area was a perfect place to relax. The Villa location was very convenient as it was short walking distance from a number of different bars, restaurants and a supermarket. It was also easy to step outside the gate and hail a taxi at most times of the day which made getting to wedding venues easy. The owner was prompt to respond and very helpful in organising the stay including multiple airport pickups and drop off which all went smoothly. Overall we had a fantastic relaxing time due in no small part to Villa Merah, it’s owner and staff. We would happily recommend. Thanks again.

Ideal for offsite meeting

I actually used the villa (and neighbour Samsara) for my offsite team meeting, which was absolutely ideal. Bedrooms were perfect for our small team of 8, and the ‘meeting’ room of Villa Merah, with doors open allowed for a refreshing change from hotels or offices. We actually got more done in 2 days than ever before. Coupled with large clean rooms and close proximity for breakfasts, lunches and evening meals, it proved to be a very cost effective way to meet. We’ll be back next year!
