Enjoying a tranquil village setting along Bali’s south-west coast, five-bedroomed Villa Shamira is a much-loved family home that’s given years of joy to its owners. This stylish yet utterly casual hideaway welcomes with a 12m swimming pool, an extensive array of relaxing indoor–outdoor living and dining areas and a team of delightful, long-term staff who are almost part of the family.
Set within lush tropical gardens and surrounded by rice fields and farming communities, Villa Shamira is a ten-minute stroll from Canggu Beach, renowned for its excellent surfing and spectacular sunsets, and only a few kilometres from the shops and restaurants of sophisticated Seminyak.
About Villa Shamira
Completed in 1990, Villa Shamira was the second western-design villa to be built in Canggu village. Back then, the property had open views across endless rice fields all the way to the black-sand beach. Despite inevitable development – no doubt accelerated by its proximity to world-class surf and to hip, vibrant Seminyak – Canggu is still a peaceful seaside community.
Villa Shamira is not just another Bali rental property or showcase villa; rather it is a genuine family residence that has evolved with the local community over the years and now offers an idyllic home-from-home holiday experience for extended families and groups of friends. Well-thumbed books line shelves, original photos hang on the walls and long-serving local staff welcome guests warmly: you can almost sense the years of laughter and happiness reverberating throughout the house.
This five-bedroom residence (Lumbung room without ensuite), set in lush tropical gardens, belies its age and has been thoughtfully updated with modern comforts and luxuries as it has matured, such as an electronic security system for added peace-of-mind. Contemporary tropical Asian influences – timelessly stylish yet informal and comfortable – complement the villa’s solid western architecture. There are so many inviting indoor–outdoor living spaces at Villa Shamira, including several dining areas, hidden patios and a poolside balé (gazebo), that it’s quite a challenge to fully enjoy them all.
These, along with its charming bedrooms and a centre-stage 12m swimming pool (pool fence available) surrounded by a sociably-sized stone pool deck, make Villa Shamira ideal for entertaining in style and lounging in luxurious comfort.
Set within private tropical gardens, Villa Shamira is western-style in design, comprising three, yellow-hued buildings topped with tiled roofing. Quality materials, including teak, distressed woods, marble and Palimanan stone are used throughout.
The ground floor of the central, double-storey building houses a large, open-sided living and dining area, TV room, kitchen and bathroom. On the upper floor, three bedrooms and an outdoor dining patio are accessed via a teakwood staircase.
To the left of the main building and accessed via a garden patio stands a single-storey detached wing aptly named the garden room, containing bedroom number four. A separate wooden staircase to the right of the living and dining area leads to the fifth bedroom known as the Lumbung room (without ensuite bathroom), its distinctive curved roof a clue to the traditional touches that lie within.
Villa Shamira is located on a small lane straddling two beach roads. A pleasant stroll of under ten minutes along either road brings you to Canggu Beach. The road to the left (Jalan Batu Balong) takes you to Canggu Beach ‘proper,’ frequented mostly by locals, especially at dusk, and providing only simple food outlets. However, just before you reach the beach, you’ll find the divine Hotel Tugu, one of Bali’s most celebrated hotels, with excellent restaurants and a fascinating and charming bar area.
The road to the right of Villa Shamira (Jalan Batu Mejan) leads to Echo Beach, a long-time surfer’s haunt that increasingly caters to visitors with spas, boutiques and a diverse range of eateries. A circular walk – particularly lovely at sunrise or sunset – takes you along the beach and past an ancient temple where Hindu ceremonies invariably spill out onto the beach.
