Can you believe that I, as a travel enthusiast, have never been to Bali before 2023? From the aesthetic beach clubs to beautiful cafes, chill islands, villas, and more, it’s wild how I finally booked a flight out to live the digital nomad life in Canggu, Bali.
In a place where everyone’s chasing some peace, Canggu offers a mix of modern comfort and Balinese vibes. But beyond the usual stays, I went on a mission to find the real gems that make your getaway special. This time, instead of committing to one stay, I hopped Airbnbs in Bali to have a little something of everything. Because, let’s be real, when it comes to Bali, it’s all about the perfect combo of comfort, looks, and that ultimate relaxation vibe.
Let’s jump right into it — here are 8 recommended Airbnbs to stay in for the ultimate rest & relax vacation in Canggu, Bali.
1. Villa Castello di Quassolo
Villa Castello di Quassolo is a true Italian oasis nestled in the heart of Bali. The host’s dedication to recreating the ambiance of their family countryside castle in Liguria is evident in every corner. It’s like stepping into Italy, but with the comfort of Bali vibes.
What stole the show for us was the sunken living room – a cozy nook perfect for movie nights with the recently added projector. It’s hard to leave when every evening feels like a private cinema experience.
The island kitchen concept is a game-changer, making this villa ideal for an extended stay. The private pool and two daybeds outside are perfect for homebodies like me, where you can blast your favourite music while suntanning and taking a dip in the pool!
The bedroom on the second floor adds an extra layer of privacy, and the two bathrooms are a thoughtful touch for added convenience. And let’s talk about space – this place has plenty of it!
Don’t miss the option for a floating breakfast; it’s an extra treat that’s absolutely worth it.
What sets this villa apart, though, is not just the gorgeous space but the incredibly welcoming staff and host who made our entire trip comfortable and safe.
If you’re traveling with a partner or friend, Villa Castello di Quassolo is the epitome of rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. It’s a slice of Italy in Bali that you won’t want to leave.
2. Bumbak Park Villas
Bumbak Park Villas – where do I start? This 3-bedroom villa, one of nine nestled in the heart of Canggu, felt like a sanctuary. With security guards, staff, and operation managers patrolling the area, the sense of safety is genuinely reassuring.
The open living room and dining area create a communal space where friends and family can unwind, take a dip in the pool, binge-watch Netflix, or even catch up on some work (if the need arises).
Each bedroom, complete with an ensuite bathroom, comfortably accommodates six guests.
I had the honour of staying at Bumbak Park Villas for two nights and let me assure you – it was the best sleep I had throughout the trip. It’s peaceful and quiet, plus the air-conditioning in each room truly cooled us down from the Bali heat.
A highlight? Every night’s stay includes a complimentary breakfast for all, prepared right in front of your eyes in the kitchen!
The hospitality at Bumbak Park Villas is beyond words – it’s an experience in itself. This is a recommendation tailor-made for larger groups, where the atmosphere encourages togetherness and relaxation.
And here’s the cherry on top – the Bumbak team is ready to assist with in-house massages, laundry services, manicures, and more!
It’s the ultimate retreat, offering not just a stay but an all-encompassing experience for a memorable Bali getaway.
3. Bayouh Villa
As a solo traveller, it’s hard to get the best of all worlds when it comes to Bali Airbnbs. I wanted a pool, a big room, free breakfast – the full suite. Thankfully, Bayouh Villa swept me off my feet.
The outdoor pantry, complete with air conditioning, adds a unique touch – hot but not too hot, you get the drift.
As a digital nomad, this felt like the ultimate stay. I would open the sliding doors whenever I wanted to jump in the pool, and hop back to the pantry to munch on some snacks. Ugh, I miss Bali already!
And let’s not forget the equally impressive bathroom, boasting a generous size and even a tub for added luxury.
Oh, and did I mention the free breakfast every morning? It was nothing short of amazing. I wholeheartedly recommend Bayouh Villa for anyone looking to come to Bali and just chill – it’s the perfect blend of comfort, tranquility, and a touch of luxury for an unforgettable stay.
Digital nomads, this is where it’s at!
4. The Blue Loft Bali
The Blue Loft Bali, with its parallel Santorini vibes, is a hidden gem just a 5-minute stroll from Finn’s Beach Club and Atlas – a dream for party enthusiasts!
This snug loft, designed for two, is perfect for those seeking proximity to the beach. It’s all about convenience, and they even throw in a scooter for your stay (if you’re up for a ride!).
The small but cozy loft comes with a charming balcony on the second floor.
Though it might be a bit too hot for extended lounging, it serves as a perfect spot for drying laundry or swimwear after a day by the beach.
Safety is a priority here, with a vigilant staff member on patrol, and gates securely locked after 11 pm every night. Each loft has an outdoor area too, separating the lounge zone from the pantry zone.
5. Villa Isola Gallinara
Villa Isola Gallinara is a heartfelt dedication to the enchanting Gallinara Island in Liguria, Italy – a cherished summer spot for the hosts’ family.
This two-story haven boasts a private pool, two daybeds, an inviting island in the kitchen, and a snug sofa – but there’s more!
What sets them apart is its homely ambiance, transcending the usual fancy villa experience. The host’s thoughtful touches, including universal plugs, a water filter, Bluetooth speakers, and beach towels, elevated our vacation.
The bedroom and bathroom grace the second level, accompanied by a cozy lounge space for those late-night chats.
A good night’s rest is guaranteed when you stay here at this Bali airbnb. Villa Isola Gallinara is like the aesthetic Pinterest home you’ll find on your mood board for home inspiration.
And seriously, why do Bali Airbnbs always come with so much space? It’s a delightful mystery that just adds to the charm of Villa Isola Gallinara.
6. Villa Eliza
The master bedroom is a total mood – direct pool access and a semi-open en-suite with a standalone bathtub. You can’t help but feel like royalty.
Villa Eliza is not just a visual spectacle; it’s a spacious playground with 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and 4 beds – perfect for the whole squad.
Whether you’re planning a chill retreat or a lively Bali adventure, this place can host up to 6 people for an unforgettable time. Time to round up the gang and make that Bali trip happen!
7. Villa Yasa Canggu
Now, Villa Yasa Canggu is a Bali airbnb right out of a painting. A mere 5-minute strut from Batu Bolong Beach, this place is basically everyone’s dream when seeking out the best villa.
The private outdoor pool? Absolute game-changer. High ceilings, a flat-screen TV, and a living room that screams “chill zone” – I was living for it.
The kitchen is fully loaded, but let’s be real, I was too busy living my best Bali life to cook.
The rooms? Air-conditioned havens with a wardrobe big enough to host a fashion show. And those windows? Let’s just say waking up to pool and garden views is my new morning routine.
Now, let’s talk bathrooms – showers, baths, and free toiletries, oh my! It’s like a spa day every day.
