Advice on Renting a Villa in Bali

NB - Click here if you are looking to rent a house  in Bali!

This post is intended as a follow up to my post about renting a house/apartment in Bali as many of my readers want to know specific information about renting a villa in Bali rather than just a house. For this, I will try to give as much info as possible about the said villas and costs involved.

One of the first things to note is that, similar to renting a house/apartment in Bali, long-term rent is usually paid in a lump sum in advance for the 6-month/year period of tenancy as, from the owners' perspective, anything less would not be worth it compared to renting it out short-term to tourists. Unfortunately, that is the way it is here - although you can find monthly villa rental, this usually equates to a much higher price for obvious reasons.

Made in Bali: Hollow Balsa Surfboards by Vince

For the next post in the Made in Bali series, I wanted to mix surfing with an eco-friendly product made in Bali, hence Vince's hollow balsa surfboards seemed like a perfect fit!

Vince Surfboards
 Vince Surfboards are made in Bali using sustainable woods such as balsa and teak with the waste products from the process (wood chippings and offcuts) going into a compost heap which is later used to fertilise new trees - a full cycle and a refreshing change from the highly toxic standard polyurethane (PU) surfboards that are the standard in the surf industry.
