The Villa Avalon estate is the very last private residence on a small lane that leads to Cangguës Kayu Putih beach, with its glistening volcanic sand and awesome waves. Only a temple and a small lagoon ë_ over which a rustic timber walkway leads to kilometres of sandy beach ë_ lie between the villa and the ocean. La Laguna, a charming ëÐboho-batikëÓ restaurant and sunset bar, is a hop and skip away; even W Hotel, Potato Head and the famed bars and restaurants of Seminyak are only a 15-minute walk from the villa. A 15-minute amble inland brings you to Canggu Plaza, with its expat-focused supermarket, gelato stop and choice of eateries. Villa Avalon is in an ideal location, right on Seminyakës doorstep yet with the peace and quiet of a far more rural setting.
Itës rare to find such a well-established villa in a quiet location 60m from the beach (only temple land lies between) and yet just a five-minute taxi ride from Seminyak. Beyond the entrance is sunset bar and tapas haven La Laguna. A five-minute stroll along the sand brings you to Mozaic Beach Club and a few simple beachfront cafes; W Hotel and Potato Head are just a little further. Within the Avalon estate itself are several sociable living spaces (both formal and informal, indoor and alfresco) ë_ the mark of award-winning architect Popo Danes who conceived the estate as a harmonious blend of contemporary design with a Balinese community feel and an Asian twist. When all three villas are booked together, the maximum capacity of 21 still doesnët feel like a crowd; there are plenty secluded corners for quiet escape. And yet a honeymooning couple basking in the romance of the one-bedroom villa alone may feel they have the entire estate to themselves, such is the intimacy of the layout. No wonder Avalon is a sought-after venue for an enchanting tropical wedding, a renewal-of-vows ceremony and indeed family celebrations of all kinds! While guests snooze on their private bedroom terrace, enjoy a few laps in one of the estateës three pools, gather around the pool table with a few beers, curl up with a good book in the air-conditioned library, or indulge in an in-room spa treatment, the well-trained ten-strong staff (including a competent chef) work discreetly in the background to provide stellar service from morning until night. With the four-bedroom main villa, a two-bedroom villa, one-bedroom villa, and several extra beds, Avalon offers multiple rental options for anything from one to 21 guests.
