Welcome to
The Orchard House

Hidden down a small laneway in the heart of bustling Seminyak lies one of Bali’s best kept secrets, The Orchard House. This charming four-bedroom villa, with an additional bedroom that sleeps four children, has a large mature garden and beckons guests with open arms.

Designed by Bali’s leading stylists, Charles and Luli Orchard, this family holiday home is an eclectic mix of Asian and Western flavours, resulting in a sublime tropical oasis in the midst of the urban jungle. Breathtakingly quiet, yet only a short stroll from some of the islands finest restaurants, spas, boutiques and bars, The Orchard House is the perfect choice for those seeking a secluded hideaway but one that’s within easy reach of Bali’s best shopping and nightlife.


The layout

At the end of a small laneway a traditional Balinese door opens to reveal a magical urban oasis. A stone path meanders through tropical gardens consisting of lush lawns, tall trees, flowering plants and a 13-metre swimming pool, to the main two-storey house with its ironwood shingle and alang-alang thatched roof.

The front doors open to an inviting entrance hall which sets the scene for the whole villa. Beautiful artwork adorns the walls and polished wooden floors gleam in the sunlight that beams through the open French-style shuttered windows.

A staircase off the entrance hall leads up to the master bedroom and children’s bedroom, where another set of steps climbs to a rooftop library with delightful views across the garden and surrounding neighbourhood.

Downstairs rests the media room, two guest bedrooms, kitchen, breakfast nook, open-plan living and dining room, and large sitting room called the Big room.

A cute one-bedroom garden bungalow lies across the lawn directly opposite the main house.

The rooms

Master bedroom

The spacious air-conditioned master bedroom with its white wooden ceiling, hardwood floors, ensuite bathroom, king-size bed and library sitting area is the perfect place for those who wish to unwind and relax while taking in the garden views. The room is also equipped with a ceiling fan and small satellite TV and DVD player.

The air-conditioned ensuite bathroom consists of two areas: a dressing room with wooden floors and antique carpets underfoot, plentiful cupboard space and two white basins set in a grey marble vanity; and a light and airy Palimanan bathing area with rain shower and tub looking out across the vivid green foliage.

This room is ideal for parents who like to have their children close at hand as the children’s room is accessed directly off the master suite’s dressing area.

Children’s room

The children’s bedroom is divided by a wooden doorway into two separate air-conditioned spaces. The first area is fitted out with a white bunk bed, bright pink furnishings, shelves, cupboards and play space, while an annex features two single beds with white and turquoise furnishings (suitable for children or teenagers).

Guest rooms

Accessed via the media room or garden veranda, the connecting downstairs guest rooms, which are cooled by both air conditioning and ceiling fans, feature green and white hand-painted cement tiles from one of Bali’s most famous artistic villages, Sidemen.

The larger room is furnished with a four-poster king-size bed draped in mosquito netting, a floral patterned sofa, watercolours and a scattering of antiques.  Curtained doors lead to the twin guest room (converts to double bed) which has its own garden access through bi-fold doors.

Both rooms share a rustic ensuite bathroom featuring a terrazzo bathtub and handheld shower, small settee, twin basins set in a beige marble vanity and a large whitewashed teak cupboard for storing clothes.  As well as opening onto the garden, the bathroom has a clear glass ceiling above the tub to give the effect of bathing under the stars.

These two guest rooms are ideally set up for a family with young children.

Garden bungalow

Across the garden from the two guest rooms stands the air-conditioned garden bungalow – discreetly located for those craving  extra privacy.  Featuring a high vaulted ceiling and alang-alang thatched roof, terracotta-tiled patio with reading chairs, a king-size four-poster bed with mosquito netting, sofa adorned with green and white striped cushions and an antique writing desk, this little house oozes character.  Traditional Balinese doors lead to an ensuite with a terrazzo tub and handheld shower and twin basins set in a teak vanity.  The bathroom also opens onto the garden – the perfect place for taking a relaxing bath.
