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).
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.
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.
We do not allow the main renter to be under 21. There is a no smoking policy everywhere except in the garden. But other than that, we really just ask that you treat our house as you would like us to treat yours!

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!
