Villa Sinar Cinta, a Dutch-owned Balinese-style villa. Like most Balinese houses, the villa had its own household shrine and two stone guardians to ward off unwelcoming spirits. Every day the housekeeper laid out offerings of tiny banana leaf boxes fillled with rice, flower petals and incense.
A walled garden, full of tropical flowers surrounds the villa. The veranda of the master bedroom on the first floor is one of the best places to enjoy the ocean view. Breakfast is served on the downstairs veranda and the sitting area is next to the swimmingpool. The villa can accommodate 6 – 8 persons. Separate from the main building is the a guests' house with two rooms. All this makes the villa very suitable for a family holiday.
The villa is rented with a five-member staff. Every morning we were asked what we liked for dinner. All ingredients were bought fresh from the market or the fishermen. Meals (except breakfast) are not included in the rent, but prices were very reasonable.
