About the property

Laid back 3 bed villa right on the sea. Fully staffed, serviced and catered

Villa Talia Vashti is a fully serviced. laid back, family villa situated on the south eastern shore of of Bali in the relaxing village of Mendira near Candidasa. The villa is close to a lovely quiet little white-sand beach which is just a pleasant 5 minute stroll through the traditional village of Mendira. Villa Talia Vashti's ocean front location is stunning and there is a large raised beach for you to enjoy at the villa itself whilst the tide is in. There is also some amazing snorkeling available just a few meters away from the villa, in the calm lagoon that lies inside of the coral reef that lies 100m offshore from the villa.

The property is a wonderfully designed home - where the outside is present right in the heart of the property. Although not as large as more ostentatious villas, the 3 pavilion design gives all the rooms views of the ocean, and the lovely planning of the villa means the feel of the natural surroundings are always close. Entry to the villa takes you along a flagstone walkway, raised above a fish pond, which runs between two pavilions. These house a lovely double room on the right and an equally gorgeous twin room to the left. The superb master bedroom occupies the whole of the upstairs floor above the lounge, with a great balcony, dressing room/office, and bathroom with raised bath, all with views out to the sea.

You can get a great idea of the villa at our website []

The villa comfortably sleeps 6 adults (plus two youngsters in a room off the main bedroom if you wish) in three suites, each with its own en-suite bathroom and great views out over the ocean to Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida. The living area has floor-to-ceiling windows that are able to be folded back to give full access to the crystal clear pool terrace with its crystal clear pool and bar area [there is also a childrens' splash pool]. The warm tropical sea is just a few steps from the villa, and with a protective coral reef just offshore it is ideal for both swimming and snorkeling.

We access the beach by a short walk through the lovely little village or on a trail through some coconut plantations; it takes just 5 minutes to make the walk.

Our chef will provide you with delicious meals cooked to the highest quality and at a price on par with local restaurants, but with a higher degree of quality. There are oceanfront restaurants which are an easy walk away and provide a nice social atmosphere. There are also many to choose from just a few minutes drive away and taxis are very cheap and efficient and motorcycle hire is available if you are comfortable riding. We offer free babysitting if adults wish to have an evening out [although we do ask for a small tip for the staff if babysitting is after the end of their normal working hours at 7pm].

Around the villa there are loads of things to do. For culture buffs the fascinating Bali Aga walled village of Tenganan is just 3km away. Candidasa Temple, and the Goa Lawah bat temple are a short drive away, and the water palaces at Tirta Gangga, the royal palace at Klungkung and the Balinese mother temple Besakih are all an easy drive away. For the kids there is obviously all the temple ceremonies, and farm animals, but other more modern attractions are close by including Bali Safari and Marine Park (30 mins); Submarine Rides (15 mins); Elephant Trekking and Rafting (40 mins) as well as visits to Chocolate "Factory" and other great local attractions.

Finally if Villa Talia Vashti appears not to be available for your dates, please feel free to contact us as we own and run 12 villas in Bali, and we may still be able to help you by suggesting other suitable villas or rearranging bookings so as to fit your dates.

About Tom & Rene Springall

Hi we are Rene and Tom Springall. As itinerant expats, we had nowhere to call home, but we both loved Bali and after several trips here over the years in 2004 we decided to buy our own villa in Candidasa and named it after our daughter (Villa Talia Vashti).

Initially we just used our villa for family & friends, but we invested a lot of time training the staff to provide our expected high level of service. In 2006 we decided tentatively to offer our wonderful villa to others, and were amazed at the response – loads of people came and stayed and loved our little villa – it was a total revelation to us.

So in 2013 we set up Kid Friendly Villas, to provide villas in Bali especially for families with kids and now own and manage 12 villas in Bali.

Tom & Rene Springall purchased this villa in 2004

Why Tom & Rene Springall chose World

Lovely sea views and quiet location, yet just a short walk to the lovely traditional village of Mendira and to Mendira Beach, where there are some really nice bars and restaurants and also has a small white sand beach with calm waters ideal for relaxing.

Then the snorkeling is really good - we can spend hours snorkeling in front of the villa.

The bars and restaurants of Candidasa are just a few minutes drive away, and there are many other attractions just a short drive away including the medieval walled village of Tenganan, Goa Lawah (Bat Cave Temple) which is the second most important temple in Bali after Besakih, and the water palaces at Ujung and Tirta Gangga (the latter a favourite for our kids as they can swim in crystal clear waters in the old palace and feed the giant Koi carp in the ponds next door).

There are also a lot of more modern attractions close by, including the Odyssey Submarine trip, Elephant rides through the jungle, and rafting trips, and Bali Marine and Safari Park, all within 15 minutes to 40 minutes drive from the villa.

What makes this villa unique

Really the unique thing about Villa Talia Vashti is the fantastic staff and the service that they provide. It is hard to get across on a website what a massive difference this can make to a guests enjoyment of their holiday - but this is the truly unique benefit of Villa Talia Vashti.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great stay here, the house has a magnificent open plan layout downstairs, and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

As others have mentioned access to the small beach in front was cut off, but you can still go down there for snorkling. We didn't go far but there's a variety of small fishes to be found in the area right in front of the house. We preferred the pool though which is excellent and the water was deliciously warm at the time.

The village nearby has a few souvenir shops and restaurants, it's just a few minutes by taxi. And you can also go for a fishing trip here. There's 'White Sand Beach' which is a bit further that was quite nice, and has a lot of very small sea-side restaurants which all seem to offer the same dishes. A pity that on arrival there was a trash dump where the car was parked, which detracted from the serenity of the place. There are lots of nice day trips to do in the surrounding area.

As for kids, in front of the house is a kind of sand area but for small kids you have to keep an eye that they do not walk off the steep ledge there, which is not protected by a fence. The pool is perfect for kids though. There's also a variety of beach toys and snorkeling gear available, as well as a lot of children's books.

Also a plus - fast wireless Internet was available which worked flawlessly.

The perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Where to start with the beautiful Talia Vishti villa. We were greeted by Ketut, the villa manager, and he and his team made us feel like visiting royalty the whole 6 days. The staff quickly accommodated our early morning requests from our 2 year old and delighted us with toys for her without even asking. The bountiful breakfast was always delicious and the seafood BBQ was divine.

We wanted a quiet, relaxing holiday to unplug and chill and we got so much more. Make sure you have a sunset drink down the road at the big hotel and discover the nearby beaches. Thanks for the perfect Bali holiday!

Welcoming and Luxurious

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Talia Vashti was the perfect last minute pick for a few of us to get away for some days in Bali.

The staff was perfect at catering to our desires for food(and great cooks!), and also respected our desire for privacy and relaxation. Ketut was instrumental in scheduling outings to town, the mountains, Ubud, and airport transfers. There is really nothing you need to worry about while you are here. Emails, and arrangements were answered promptly by the owners.

The Villa feels both relaxing and comfortable, and is furnished in deluxe Balinese style.

We would come back at any time, and recommend this property to anyone.

Though the snorkeling is good from shore, the snorkel gear at the Villa is getting a bit dated, if a guest were to bring their own it would be a great way to spend time between other activities.

Do not hesitate to book this property.

Fantastic secluded beach front villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights, and had a fantastic time. The place was clean, the staff were wonderful and the location beautiful, secluded and quiet. I brought my parents to Bali for their first visit, this being the first location we stayed, and they were absolutely blown away by the Villa. It has a wonderful Balinese style, with an open layout and modern comforts that were all kept in excellent condition.

Although there is no 'proper' sand beach in front that leads directly to the water, for us it was perfect as we could relax and enjoy the ocean view next to the pool; sunbathe or stay in the shade, then walk through the sand area and down some steps into the water for some amazing snorkelling, which was certainly a highlight for us. On the last night we ordered the seafood bbq, cooked by the staff which was absolutely fantastic, and very reasonably priced for the quality of the food.

An extremely relaxing and fulfilling stay, and exactly what we were looking for to experience some oceanside Bali living. Hopefully we can return again! Thanks!

Villa Talia Vashti is less than 5 minutes drive away from Candidasa - the gateway to East Bali. Candi (pronounced 'Chandi') is only one and a quarter hours away from the heavily developed Kuta/Sanur area of Bali, but it can at times feel like stepping back in time to a more relaxed and less hectic time.

In recent years however while development has come to Candidasa, it retains its relaxed easy going charm. There is now however a good variety of different hotels and restaurants in Candi and the shops provide most tourist services such as good restaurants, internet access, tours and trips, diving and car hire. Candidasa is however still thankfully entirely free of the hard sell that you find in the Kuta/Sanur/Nusa Dua/Legian developments or increasingly in Ubud.

Basically Candidasa is a place to do a bit of shopping and then sit in a restaurant, order some good food in pleasant surroundings and take in the view across the ocean or across the rice paddies to the Agung volcano.
