Casa Evaliza Villa is a spacious Bali rental villa, located 400 metres from the beach in the upmarket Oberoi area on Bali’s southwest coast. The contemporary Balinese architectural design presents a splendid, single-storey, thatched pavilion housing a living & dining area, air-conditioned TV room with a sofa-bed, and modern kitchen; this is adjacent to a two-storey building incorporating four air-conditioned bedrooms complete with ensuite bathrooms, a balcony and a terrace.

This impressive Bali villa is a peaceful oasis in the heart of the trendy Seminyak district. It is ideal for families and couples alike.
Casa Evaliza Villa is located in a secure gated area next door to the prestigious ’Club at The Legian’ and therefore well protected by the Club’s security team as well as the Villa’s own security guards. Guests have use of the car park at The Club and the villa itself is accessed via a short pathway capped with a pergola draped in flowering bougainvillea.
Living & Dining Pavilion
The expansive Living & Dining Pavilion is characterised by a soaring ’alang alang’ thatched roof, cream terrazzo floor, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that run the length of the building and along one side. These doors can folded open to create an open-air, tropical living experience beside the garden and swimming pool. The pavilion is cooled by six powerful ceiling fans. At one side of the room is a dining table, comfortably seating ten on rattan chairs. The cream walls are adorned with local artwork and the centre of the room is furnished with two cushioned rattan sofas and ottomans, a large coffee table, lamps and an antique Javanese ’gerobok’ chest on wooden wheels, originally used for storing rice. A romantic, canopied daybed rests in the corner beside an antique table.
The TV Room is located on the ground floor next to the Living & Dining Pavilion. This cosy, air-conditioned room is accessed by folding glass doors and features a cool terrazzo floor. It is furnished with a comfortable sofa bed and equipped with bookshelves, a satellite-channel TV & DVD/CD player and a computer. WiFi Internet access is available.
The fully equipped, modern kitchen is strategically positioned between the Living & Dining Pavilion and the staff service area. It presents marble work surfaces, a central island and immaculate stainless steel appliances.
The Master Suite covers the ground floor of the two-storey building. The suite is dominated by a king-size, netted bed and the walls display colourful paintings. This generously-sized bedroom also incorporates a sitting area furnished with a desk, shelf unit, lamps, sofa, coffee table, desk and a huge satellite-channel TV with DVD and sound system. A window to one side overlooks a small pebbled garden.
The grand, ensuite, air-conditioned bathroom is accessed via sliding doors. It features an avocado-green terrazzo floor and a huge central bathtub. A double vanity unit is fashioned in the same green terrazzo and presents two mirrors and twin washbasins. There is also a walk-in shower and a toilet hidden within an alcove. Floor-to-ceiling mirrored doors slide open to reveal a dressing room, fitted with a wall of rattan-fronted wardrobes.
Sliding glass doors from the bedroom open onto a covered verandah that runs the length of the building and looks out over the garden. It is furnished with a rattan sofa, two rattan chairs and a small table.
Guest Bedrooms ’Casa Evaliza 1’ and ’Casa Evaliza 2’ are located on the upper floor, accessed by a timber-clad staircase. The rooms are bordered by a delightful covered balcony with a timber floor and elevated views of the garden. The balcony runs the length of the building and is furnished with a sofa, rattan chairs and a glass-topped table. These two air-conditioned guest bedrooms feature wooden floors and are equipped with queen-size beds, reading lamps, wardrobes, mirrors and TV/DVD players. Ensuite bathrooms are fashioned in green terrazzo and are fitted with bathtubs, single vanity units, walk-in showers and toilets. The fourth bedroom is slightly smaller; it is furnished with a queen size bed and TV/DVD. The ensuite bathroom is fitted with a wardrobe, washbasin, walk-in rainshower and toilet.
Swimming Pool and Garden
The large walled garden is shaded by beautiful mature trees and landscaped with a terraced lawn on two different levels, complete with fragrant frangipani trees and potted bonsais. Palimanan stone steps lead up to the 14.5 x 5 metre swimming pool, which features a dazzling water cascade at one end. A set of wide, grass covered steps extends to a grassy pool deck furnished with sunbeds. This is also the location of a ’bale’ open-sided, thatched relaxation pavilion fitted with a huge built-in daybed. There is an alfresco dining table for six, sheltered within the bale.
Casa Evaliza is located in the very centre of what is now considered to be the Seminyak’s prime district, exemplified by internationally-acclaimed beachside restaurants, opulent spas, boutique hotels, trendy cocktail bars, and chic designer boutiques. Within a few hundred metres, guests will find the well-known Oberoi and Legian Hotels, in addition to the famous KU DE TA, La Lucciola, Hu’u Bar and Living Room restaurants.
