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 [www.taliavashti.com]
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.
