Rumah Gembira means Happy House in Indonesian, and that is how we want you to feel when you stay here. The entry to the house is via traditional Balinese gates. Wide steps and a solid handrail make access easy to the pool. There is 1 very large studio room with glass sliding doors opening out to your own beautiful tropical walled garden. The bedroom is both air conditioned and has a ceiling fan. Put your feet up and watch tv or DVDs from the sofa or from the king size bed if you prefer. Comfortable folding chairs allow you to lay back and put your feet up. (They can be taken outdoors if you like to sit on n the sun.)There is ample storage, including hanging space, and a safe for your valuables. The stone tiled bathroom has a hot and cold shower, vanity and toilet. The newly renovated kit...Rumah Gembira means Happy House in Indonesian, and that is how we want you to feel when you stay here.

The stone tiled bathroom has a hot and cold shower, vanity and toilet. The newly renovated kitchen is open to the garden and is ready for you if you prefer self catering. A wall fan will keep you comfortable while you make your morning toast, or whip up an omelet on the three burner cooker. Cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils are supplied. Relax on the comfy colonial chairs or dine on the terrace by the sparkling pool. Keep your drinks cool in the refrigerator and top up with ice cubes from the freezer. The sofa converts to a small double bed. If you'd like to experience sleeping outdoors we can swap around the sofa and chairs for a night on the terrace! A mosquito net is provided to protect the sleeper/s. An outdoor shower will wash away the sand when you return from the beach or rinse off the water from the pool. Fibre optic connection recently added ensures speedy wifi and provides cable tv. Rumah Gembira is located between the beach and the By-Pass road and is only a 10 minute walk to the water where you can swim or partake in the activities on offer. Or if you prefer, watch the fisherman, windsurfers or divers come in while you are sitting at one of the many beachside eateries, sipping a cocktail and anticipating a meal of freshly caught tuna or mahi mahi. A 150 metre walk down our street will take you to the main strip in Sanur for more dining and entertainment options plus a variety of shopping, A reliable money changer is around the corner, as are taxis, bike hire and printing services, good coffee and excellent grocery supplies. Maid service is included in the tariff and is provided Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Linen is changed weekly. More

Very happy to hear the birthday trip went well. Thanks for your kind words and patience despite the run of hiccups! The road is a nuisance at present but hopefully they’ll have it finished in a few days. Ida

About the neighbourhood
If you offer a smile in Sanur it is returned wider and cheerier! Sanur, although geared to the tourist trade, still maintains the appeal of the village it once was, where tradition and religion are integral to the society. The majority of businesses are owned and operated by local Balinese whose offerings are laid daily on the footpaths and at the small temples. It is not unusual to see the traffic halted in the Main Street to allow a funeral procession pass on its way to the cremation site. The annual kite and village festivals provide diverse spectacles. The beach walk offers about 4 km of paved footpath popular with joggers, cyclists and walkers meandering under the trees past hotels, shops, markets, water sports, restaurants and locals offering massages, manicures etc. Shade and a c...
Getting around
Most facilities are a gentle stroll or bicycle ride away. Eg restaurants, shopping, massages, the beach and beach activities? Bemos and taxis can be flagged in the street. For longer trips or day hire negotiations can be made with drivers waiting with their vehicles in the Main Street. (Check the folder in the villa for recommendations.)
