Villa of the Week: Villa Mary

The basics

Set on Pererenan beach, Villa Mary is exactly the type of home you think of when you picture Bali. There are traditional alang-alang roofs, teak fixtures, tropical greenery and rice paddies, and that stunning ocean view.

Villa Mary is a five-bedroom, five-bathroom home just outside of Canggu in Bali. Suitable for ten guests, Villa Mary features open-air lounges, a cinema room, jacuzzi and two chlorine free pools – one 15-metre adult pool and one shallow pool for toddlers and infants.

In an isolated spot, surrounded by rice fields, a Balinese temple and a surf beach, Villa Mary is a 15-minute drive from trendy Canggu’s main stretch.

It is 16-kilometres from Ngurah Rai International Airport and 12.3-kilometres to Seminyak.

This may sound like it is a long way away from things, but you won’t have difficulty getting around. The villa comes with the use of a private 5-seater car and driver for up to eight hours each day; you only have to pay for the price of petrol.

Food & drink

You don’t have to look further than your own doorstep for delicious meals. Villa Mary comes with an in-house chef. The chef is particularly skilled in Balinese cuisine but can accommodate a wide range of tastes and appetites.

The best bits

The lush rice paddy views from some of the bedrooms are only outweighed by the beach views you’ll find from others.

Even rainy days won’t stop the fun at Villa Mary. The villa comes with a 100 sqm movie room which comes fully equipped with an HD cinema system.

There’s an outdoor bathtub for stargazing with a glass of wine. Do I need to say more?
