This is my dream retreat in Bali. The house is immaculately decorated with granite counter tops, marble floors and stained-glass windows. There is a lovely ceramic tile pool, complete with gazebo, lounge chairs, and fountains. It has all the amenities you could ask for, including staff who are available to clean as often as you would like. I also have access to a full-time driver, should you desire to do any day-trips to the many local attractions such as Ubud, the artists enclave, the Monkey Forest or the black sand beaches of CandiDasa. My home now has internet access on a pay-per-usage basis, but there is no computer there. Also, while the closest big city is Kuta, I am about 25 minutes from there. My home is only 5 minutes from the city of Nusa Dua.
My home is located in a private, gated community with round-the-clock security. While I am not located on the ocean, my house is a five minute drive from the beach. The neighbors are mostly Europeans and the homes in the community are all privately owned. I built the home 5 years ago and am planning to retire there. Everything detail about it has been a labor of love.
My name is Anne and I am a full-time teacher in Seoul, Korea. Building this home was my dream and I plan to retire there. I generally go to Bali to enjoy my vacations, but I am also very keen to pursue a home exchange to experience other parts of the world.
