Sea Shanty is a rare diamond. A real slice of paradise in Jimbaran.
The first time I visited Sea Shanty I was more than pleasantly surprised. The villa is so large and spacious, and just meters from the beach. Unlike the new developments happening all around the island, Sea Shanty celebrates the old Bali in a beautiful and gracious way.
The materials used in every room and every bathroom are meant to last and they are impeccably maintained. All the tiling and stone work brings warmth and style to the house. The doors to the bedrooms are all hand carved and fit perfectly with the style of the villa, revealing a lovely Indonesian tradition in an understated luxurious style.
The front door and foyer is incredibly stunning and imposing. With its huge wooden door and the tall palm trees and large rocks paving the way, it makes a long-lasting impact.
Sea Shanty is a 4-bedroom villa, with one of the bedrooms dedicated for kids. With 2 bunk beds (4 individual beds!), lots of soft toys and even a blackboard with plenty of colored chalks for the kids to entertain themselves, it’s heaven for children! Even the bathroom next to the kid’s bedroom is playful with a large friendly octopus painting on the bath wall.
The rest of the bedrooms are spacious with large bathrooms, two with showers and one with a gorgeous bathtub. The beds are huge and incredibly comfortable.
The large garden and swimming pool area are a great size for the kids to play and have a wonderful time. The massive kitchen/living space is perfect for large groups as there is more than enough room for everyone to sit down to eat and relax.
One of the great things about Sea Shanty is the proximity to the beach. The short walk to Jimbaran beach is easy even with little ‘uns. We made the most out of our stay there by enjoying the white sand and calm waters. It’s perfect for little kids and their adults to have a great holiday.
Sea Shanty is really a home away from home. The caretakers make you feel incredibly comfortable and are attentive without being intrusive. The size of the home allows you to have your privacy if you want to or to be as social as you desire. The extremely well- equipped kitchen and tv room let you relax and call Sea Shanty your home for the duration of your stay.
