About this listing

Looking for a villa with the perfect formula for an awesome holiday? Villa Cocoa Maya is right on the beach, fully serviced, staffed & catered (breakfast is included in the rate). It's a 5-minute walk into central Candidasa, and the villa is within easy access of all eastern Bali’s sights (we have a car and driver for your use).

Available to rent as a 3-bedroom villa (6 people or fewer) or a 4-bedroom villa (up to 12 people).

The space

It's all about relaxation! The spaces at the villa are really large (each bedroom is a minimum of 60 metres), and the equally large garden has many different areas to relax - the pool, the garden, the outside lounge, the Balinese gazebo - take your pick! Our guests therefore often mention how well the villa works for families, groups etc because you can have "together time" and "alone time" in whatever combination you want!

The villa’s four large bedroom suites each have their own bathroom and large lounge areas, all with ocean views. Three of the suites also have a balcony and are fitted with king-size beds (one has two king-size beds), air conditioning, ceiling fans, bar fridges, flat-screen TVs and DVD players. Two extra mattresses are available for a maximum of 12 guests to enjoy the villa.

Guest access

Villa Cocoa Maya is a vacation rental property, therefore guests have access to the whole house during their stay. Although the villa is catered, guests have access to the kitchen whenever they want.

The property is stand-alone so there is a large garden for use only by our guests.

The villa is only ever rented to one group at a time.

Interaction with guests

Tragically we don't live on Bali full-time, so our five staff members are there to cater to your every need while affording you privacy at all times. We find that nothing improves the family/friend/group holiday dynamic more than not having to fight over whose turn it is to load the dishwasher or who should be cooking that night! Our guests therefore love having villa staff and have occasionally been know to try and bribe them with large sums of money to fly home with them! Our staff are excellent cooks and will provide you with meals from our reasonably priced a la carte menu (breakfast is included in your rate). However you are under no obligation to eat at the villa, there are also excellent restaurants in the area. There is also an honesty display drinks fridge in the kitchen and there are bar fridges in all the bedrooms.

Other things to note

Our villa is quite unique in Candidasa. We are located on a large double stand which is unheard of for villas in Candidasa; we have a white sand beach directly on our doorstep (most villas have ocean access only from a pier and do not have a beach); and we are a five minute walk from central Candidasa. A lot of villas in the area either have a beach, or are within walking distance of Candidasa, but we are unique in having both!

We are not a self-catering villa. Our staff provide simple, well-priced meals from our a la carte menu so all you have to do is sit back and relax!

The villa is serviced daily and the staff are there to help you organise day trips, restaurant bookings, boat trips, massages etc.

Bali is the land of roosters (often jokingly referred to as the national bird!) We do have roosters in the area (on Bali it's hard not to), but not on our property, and we can't control their crowing (although we'd love to)! If you're a light sleeper you might hear them from time to time.

After an average trip 15 years ago I had been avoiding going back to Bali. Recently we had to go to so we could attend a wedding of some friends and now I can't wait to go back. When planning the next trip the first thing I would do would be to book at Villa Cocoa Maya. It was stunning, Komang and the other staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spacious, the pool gorgeous and the views off the coast and behind us to the mountains were fantastic. The meals provided when excellent. Komang organised scooters and buses for us and had plenty of helpful advice for us. We even had the opportunity for a very very late checkout the day we left which was offered at no extra charge. The only bad thing about our stay was when we had to leave. I highly recommend this part of the world and this villa specifically.

The pictures do this place no justice. We could not stop oohing and ahhing. Mailie has beautifully personalized the space with her masterful decorating; each room comes with its own character and charm. Despite its exquisite decor, the villa is comforting with a welcoming vibe. We did NOT want to leave. The location description is exact. The views: breathtaking! The staff (Komang, Ketut, Made, etc.) became our family. They saw to our every need and made us the *most* delicious meals. We felt the menu of food options and prices were beyond reasonable for the quality. Should we return to Candidasa, we know where we MUST return and stay. We canNOT recommend Villa Cocoa Maya enough. BIG thanks to Mailie and the housing team! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Villa Cocoa Maya is simply amazing! The house is beautifully decorated, the rooms very spacious and spotless, the garden and the view stunning, there is a direct access to the beach, and the house staff is wonderful. They make you feel like home, and make everything easy for you to spend amazing and relaxing vacations ( from food to transportation) . My family loved the villa , it was just the perfect place for our family holidays, and we all wish we would have stayed longer. I highly recommend Villa Cocoa Maya. Communication with Maillie prior our arrival was easy and she organized our travel to Candidasa.

Transportation provided by the villa is overpriced. So is some food. Other than that - best villa in Candidasa...

My friends and I spent an amazing stay in the Villa Cocoa Maya. The house is wonderful, as on pictures. There are very large spaces, bedrooms are so spacious and beds very confortable. The garden is quite big, just in front of the beach with an amazing swimming pool where you can stay all day long! And there is a small beach in front of the house where you can rent a typical boat to go to fish or dive. The area is quiet to spend amazing vacation. But you can also find some good restaurants, bars and beaches around the villa. The staff in the villa was absolutely perfect. Smiling, available, they took care of our every need while also appreciating our privacy. Mailie was absolutely perfect with us and very flexible. We definitely recommend this stunning villa!

Simply an amazing experience. A truly beautiful home with one of the only villas with direct beach access. Can't imagine anything better on Candidasa! Mailie was incredible to work with from start to finish. She responded to each of my inquiries within minutes and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. The staff at the villa was a delight - efficient, fun-loving and responsible - and they took care of our every need while also appreciating our privacy. It really is a stunning villa! We marveled at the furniture and decorating throughout and each immediately selected a room that fit our style. We were traveling with 6 adults so I loved that the rooms were separated enough that we all felt we had a great deal of privacy when we wanted it. I almost forgot to mention the fantastic food! And, the sweet staff took the extra effort to make us a local treat after noticing us admiring it. After staying in Seminyak on our last trip, we chose Candidasa because it provided the Bali experience without all of the people and traffic. We're so glad we made that decision. There's a lot to offer in this area. We were able to snorkel right from the villa and the staff coordinated a boat for us to snorkel a bit further out, which was fantastic. Very close to the monkey temple and a trip to the water palace is a must! Can't say enough about our time at this wonderful paradise. We just regretted not being able to stay longer.

Hi, my husband David and I love to travel and we really love travelling within our own beautiful country, South Africa, and to Bali!

David first visited Bali 17 years ago and fell in love with the island, its beauty and its people. He continued to visit over the years and we also honeymooned there. Since then it's been our staple family holiday destination with our two boys.

A few years ago we were fortunate enough to be able to find two beautiful villas, one in Ubud and one on the beach in Candidasa in eastern Bali. Tragically Bali is a long way from home so we don't get to go there are often as we would like. However we're happy to rent it out when we're not there! This year we've added a third property in an excellent location in Seminyak.

Similarly we found our own little piece of the beautiful Overberg region in South Africa, where we love to watch the whales with a glass of wine on our balcony. And when we're not there we're happy for you to enjoy it too!
