Why Getting a Leasehold Villa in Canggu is Promising25 February 2021 by Ade
Some people who are eligible to own a freehold property are still taking long-term leases, especially on properties in Canggu. Why is it a good idea? Benefits of leasehold villas Leasing is a strategy that many property investors use to enter the villa rental business without risking their money on one location or property. Some do so to test out the waters and to determine if the market rental price to leasing cost ratio offers sustainable profit in a certain location. If an investor discovers that the earnings are smaller than they had expected, they are still able to sell their leasehold rights and look for other opportunities to deploy capital. More benefits of leasehold villa in Canggu Leasing gives more flexibility, not to mention liquidity as smaller up-front costs are incurred. While you are responsible for making minor repairs, you are not fully responsible for any damages to the property due to, for example, natural disasters. Subletting leasehold villas is legal in Bali, provided that you have made an agreement with the landlord, and that the villa is certified as a holiday rental property. This gives you access to around 15% ROI. In fact, this is how many foreigners make their money in Canggu (and many other places in Bali), as they are not eligible to own land in Indonesia. Some caveats of leasehold villa The only caveat is that most leasehold agreements are paid in cash since it’s impossible to get a mortgage for leaseholds. This does not mean you cannot negotiate for payments in installments, although this may significantly impact your ROI.

Life in a Villa in Umalas15 February 2021 by Ade
Here is what life in a villa in Umalas looks like: A private life in reclusion, but close enough to exciting places. It’s a balanced lifestyle in a villa in Umalas. “The Bali Dream” is a permanent vacation lifestyle that incorporates work into the blissful tropical villa life that many have sought after. We may have Tim Ferris to blame for suggesting that it is possible to set up an online business and a remote working policy and to generate passive income to be spent on affordable housing in Southeast Asia. Now it seems that many people are working to reach that specific lifestyle. On the other side of the coin, property investors are taking an interest in the financial opportunity of owning a villa in Umalas, Bali. But let us not talk about the obvious financial advantage of investing in a Bali villa. What about the lifestyle itself? Let’s examine the Bali villa lifestyle. Owning all the space and time in your private villa After a night socializing on the town, a soft bed in your own villa is a sight for sore eyes. A villa is a place to rest, recover, and relax, a place where you can truly be yourself. A rest day (or a rest week?) is in order after spending time exploring the island. Perhaps during your travels, you realize that your villa offers everything you need in a home — natural sights, glistening pool, day beds, and entertainment. More than a place to stay What is the difference between a house and a villa? A villa has everything that a house has, and a lot more. The feeling of staying in a villa can be summarized with two words — intentionally luxurious. A house may be simply a place to live and work, efficient but comfortable. A villa, on the other hand, doesn’t often prioritize efficiency, rather seeking to indulge one’s senses in the luxurious. What architecture and decorations will induce the greatest feeling of happiness? This question defines what a villa should be. Close to many interesting places Villa Miracle 3 is a beautiful single bedroom villa in Umalas complete with a private swimming pool. Umalas has lots to offer if you love a stroll in the neighborhood as you can find interesting and quirky restaurants, cafes and pubs, or small clubs. Umalas also lies at the crossroads leading to Seminyak, Berawa, and Kerobokan, making the area accessible and convenient. Looking for a private villa in such a lovely place? Villa Miracle 3 could be your miracle chance encounter. Let us know if you’d like to inspect with us.
Great Locations for Bali Villas8 February 2021 by Ade
Locations may not be the only thing that makes a Balli villa profitable, but it has an effect on your market and the occupancy rate. Here are some great locations! Location may not be the only thing that makes a Balli villa profitable, but it has an effect on 1) the type of market and 2) the potential occupancy rate. This is based on the fact that different locations offer varying degrees of destination attractiveness. The more attractive a destination, the higher the ‘traffic’ and therefore, the greater your potential occupancy rate. However, the type of market will also determine the style, pricing, and initial investment of your villa. Here are some great locations to have a Bali villa business. 1. Seminyak The chic queen of south Bali tourism, Seminyak’s visitors are often wealthy and prefer a glamorous holiday rental with the necessary luxuries. The Seminyak area is also very close to the airport, making it a prime destination. Given its accessibility and attractiveness, buyers should expect a higher capital initial investment. However, given the funds and the creative will to help your guests impress their friends, your establishment could be in a prime location. 2. Canggu Slightly less tourism and generally enjoyed by younger tourists, Canggu is the go-to place for surfing and affordable villas for digital nomads. A hostel or app-based daily rental can help you bring in quick revenue, but the real prize lies in the steadily increasing land price as Canggu will become highly developed in 10 to 20 year’s time, especially given the fact that there are construction plans for a highway across Southwest Bali. 3. Sanur Although Sanur’s land price is steadily increasing, it remains to be the prime quiet suburban neighborhood of the sunrise-facing shorelines. The beach area is increasingly occupied by hotels and villas, but across the Bypass, affordable accommodation and long-term rentals are sought-after prizes. This is where you could consider building homes for long-term visitors, families, or retirees. 4. Nusa Dua An increasingly popular place with a rare combination of wealthy tourists and affordable prices. Nusa Dua is rapidly increasing in value, and any investor who is willing to catch up with the price climb is in for a great ride. Many options will be open for you if you want to explore opportunities in Nusa Dua. Pick your safe haven at Bali Coconut Living Bali Coconut Living is a property agent, management, and consultant. Our family business is professional yet human, as we do not hesitate to use our empathy to help our clients every step of the way — from being an absolute beginner of property investment to being a successful owner of a villa.

Renting a Bali Yearly Rental Home? Here is a Pro Tip1 February 2021 by Ade
Excited to browse our range of properties to choose from? Here are some useful tips to know before you choose your favorite villa. Bali yearly rentals offer a lot of value for those who come to Bali to work, play, and rest. After all, the island is a bustling marketplace for remote-working creative professionals, and it is a great idea to make one of the many beautiful and affordable villas your home — a temporary home it seems, but a home nevertheless. Excited to browse our range of properties? Here are some useful tips to know before you choose your favorite villa. 1. Bali yearly rental access is sometimes better than distance It is true that location is the most important factor, but how do you determine which location is right for you? Do you first consider the distance to the beach, or a favorite hotspot, or to your favorite Bali destination? You may not want to live in a remote location away from the excitement, but you also do not want to live where you play — the novelty and excitement of your favorite place is diminished once you are accustomed to it. Therefore, pick a location where it is easy to access not just your favorite places, but also the rest of Bali. This makes it easy to pursue a change of pace at a whim. 2. Consider each villa’s facilities and surroundings As you will live in the villa for at least a year, it is important to get comfortable by taking advantage of the conveniences that our villas have to offer. Gardener, housemaid, and rubbish collection are extra value additions that you can easily outsource with our help. Check for the rates on the internet connection as well as its signal strength and reliability. Other than that, consider your surroundings. Do you have access to the grocery store or restaurants for a good meal? Is the villa private enough that you can enjoy a quiet evening in peace? 3. Ask about subletting policies for your Bali yearly rental Each landlord has different rules about subletting (leasing to a subtenant). After living here for quite some time, you may consider renting one of your rooms to a holiday tourist. In case this is your plan, please have a thorough discussion with the landlord. In general, subletting is most likely possible with a leasehold title. It is inadvisable to sublet a villa regularly without the appropriate license. Check out our villas at Bali Coconut Living, a property agent that can help you find your long term villa rental in Bali. We are also a villa management service to help landlords manage their villas for them.

How To Buy Villas In Canggu19 January 2021 by Ade
Looking to buy the tropical luxury villa of your dreams here in Canggu, Bali? It could be as easy as 1-2-3! Here is the best way to go about it. If you’re looking to buy real estate, property, and villas freehold or leasehold here in Canggu, Bali, then you’ve come to the right place. Bali Coconut Living is not just a property agency, but a team of passionate real estate professionals who would love to help you find your new home, land, or property here in Bali. Whether you are looking to buy or sell a property, we are here to listen and assist. In many other parts of the world, purchasing your dream villa could be as easy as putting in an offer, waiting to receive the good (or not so good) news, and then receiving the keys to your front door! Unfortunately, the property landscape here in Bali and in Indonesia isn’t as straightforward as we’d all like it to be, thanks to the complicated local property laws. The first thing to know is that foreigners aren’t legally allowed to own land or property in Indonesia. With such laws in place, how could you ever see your dream of owning a Canggu villa in Bali coming true!? Don’t worry. We’re here to help you out. Basically, there are legal ways for you to own your dream slice of paradise. You have two options: the first is long-term rental, or you can set up a foreign-owned company registered here in Indonesia. With a long-term rental, you can lease a property for up to 25 years and extend it up to 70 years. Thereafter, the land and the villa is returned to the owner. Here are more helpful tips on how you can soon buy your very own villa in Canggu: Make sure you go through the proper channels. Indonesia is a very bureaucratic country and it takes its property laws very seriously. Do not try to cut corners or take “the easy way out”. Remember that foreigners aren’t allowed to own property in Indonesia, so when it comes to buying your villa, do not try to use a local person’s name to act as the owner “on paper”. We’ve seen many people try to do this and lose more than just their money. Remember that every building should have a Building Permit (IMB), so do not purchase a villa if it does not come with an IMB. Remember to always choose a location where you would personally love to live. If you as a foreigner love the location, then chances are other foreigners and visitors to the island would love it too in case you plan to rent out (or sell) your villa in the future. As a rule of thumb, convenience is key, as most people won’t want to travel too far to get to the town centre, schools, shopping, or to the beach. To ensure that your entire villa purchase process is as easy as 1-2-3, partner with a reputable property agent such as Bali Coconut Living. We have an excellent track record in assisting our clients in finding their dream villas and we’ll be with you every step of the way so you won’t ever feel like you’re in the dark!

3 Best Freehold Villas in Seminyak12 January 2021 by Ade
Looking to buy the tropical luxury freehold villa of your dreams here in Seminyak, Bali? You’ll find it right here with Bali Coconut Living. When purchasing a villa in Bali, you will come across terms like “Leasehold” and “Freehold”. If you’re new to the property landscape here in Bali and are looking to purchase a beautiful Bali villa for yourself, then it would probably be a good idea for you to know and understand the difference between a leasehold property and a freehold property. Leasehold means property that you rent for the long-term. With a long-term rental, you can lease a property for up to 25 years and extend it up to 70 years. Thereafter, the land and the villa is returned to the owner. This would be the perfect option for foreigners who would like to build or rent a Bali villa but are unable to purchase any property due to strict Indonesian property laws. Freehold means Bali property or villas that can only be purchased by domestic/Indonesian citizens, investors, or entities. However, if you’re a foreigner with a KITAS / KITAP, you will be able to purchase 1 freehold property under the Hak Pakai or Right To Use structure with a Freehold title. Remember that in addition to price, there are a few points to really consider before purchasing a Bali villa and one of them is definitely the location. It would be best if you select a location that is already popular with tourists such as Seminyak or Canggu. So if you’re looking for the best freehold villas here in Bali, you’ll find them here with us at Bali Coconut Living.

Yearly Villa in Bali: Villa Nevada 621 December 2020 by Ade
Villa Nevada 6 is available for yearly rent, offering a strategic home base at Batu Belig Road and great stay experiences to enjoy once the villa is yours. Villa Nevada 6 isn’t your average 3-bedroom medium-sized villa. For a villa of this size and caliber, it surely can accommodate high quality living for a family of four with two children, or even a group of nomadic digital talents wanting to tap into the elusive Balinese market. Villa Nevada 6 is available for yearly rental in Bali at a decent price, offering a great location at Batu Belig Road as well as great stay experiences that can be enjoyed once the villa is yours. Let’s take a peek into the villa. Spacious gardens for a yearly villa in Bali The villa sits on a generous 300 square meters of land, which means it can accommodate a small swimming pool and a decent outdoor sitting area, a perfect place to have a picnic within the villa grounds. Reclining on a daybed in the garden next to a pool while working or relaxing, is an ideal picture of the Bali lifestyle. Most of the villas we feature in Bali Coconut Living put an emphasis on being close to nature. After all, Bali is an island that is blessed with natural beauty, and residents of a villa should be exposed to it as much as possible. The garden features many tropical plants with large leaves, which offers pleasant sights and fresh air. Some plants are flowering plants that are simple to maintain; all you need to do is to water them a little bit during the dry season, but you can let nature do the rest during the monsoon season. The interior of Villa Nevada 6 If there is one word to describe this Bali yearly villa, it is home. It is a noun, not an adjective, for many reasons. Any villa can be cozy, homey, and welcoming, but not any villa can be a home. Villa Nevada 6 in particular is a home to many people who have rented it before. The villa is simple, minimalistic, with traditional charms mixed with contemporary arts and decorative features. It is the feeling that you can find in most people’s homes — a little bit of something new from the home depot, mixed in with family heirlooms and objects of sentiment. The interior design of Villa Nevada 6 is familiar yet refreshing. To learn more about this yearly villa in Bali, simply talk to us.
Leasehold Villa in Berawa: Villa Narwastu15 December 2020 by Ade
By 2021, you should have a leasehold villa in Berawa. It presents an excellent opportunity for investment, and you are able to earn passive income from managed villas. It’s amazing that a small flower such as Narwastu, a Hindi word for vetiver, can contain an incredibly diverse range of aromatic experiences. Likewise, Villa Narwastu is a single villa that is packed with endless possibilities. This leasehold villa in Berawa sits on 1200 square meters of land, which is impressive considering that it is centrally located in Berawa, Canggu, very close to the wonderful culture, yet well-distanced within one of the private alleyways to offer some privacy and peace of mind. What can a land of this size offer? Villa Narwastu is a 5-bedroom villa and is currently on lease until 2038 and extendible. This presents an opportunity for both investors and home seekers. The 5-bedroom wonder villa for leasehold The villa is reminiscent of a cathedral. It is two stories high, but each floor offers incredibly tall ceiling height, giving way to natural sunlight that floods through the wall of windows that line alongside the east and west sides of the building. You can also open these windows to allow fresh morning air, delivered to you from the Indian Ocean. The straightforward design is sturdy yet aesthetic. The abundance of wooden and glass on the second floor and solid stone that lines up along the walls on the first floor are reminiscent of a ship. Residents sleep on the second floor, in bedrooms that each offer spectacular views of the garden and swimming pool. The outdoor life is as exciting as life inside the house. The swimming pool is not only wide but deep at one end, perfect for diving. In fact, the pool includes a diving board. Around the pool are glass panes to prevent young children or pets from entering the pool without adult supervision. As such, this villa is perfect for large or small families (with pets!). Amazing profit potential for a leasehold villa in Berawa In the world of property investments, leasehold is mostly always better than monthly or yearly rentals. With a leasehold villa, you effectively become a landlord, despite some limitations that the owner does not have. You can arrange to have the villa rented out and managed to sub-tenants. Your best customers are people who go on holidays in groups. This is a very common practice for domestic travellers. If you hire butlers and chefs and have the villa managed by third-party managers such as Bali Coconut Living, you can then set up a sustainable villa business right away. By simply taking a profit margin, you can already have a passive income generator without having to worry too much about customer or room service, as these have been managed for you. In essence, you would have your own hotel business running in the background while you tend to your other businesses. Talk to us about Villa Narwastu at Bali Coconut Living.

You must have appreciated the fine details of Balinese craftsmanship that manifested itself in the woodwork, masonry, fabric, and the architecture as a whole. This one villa in Umalas allows you to experience them all on a daily basis, that is if you truly own it. Introducing, Villa Mireda, a freehold villa for sale in Umalas. This villa sits on 600 square meters of Balinese soil, upon which life had sprung — olden day farmers used to grow rice, fresh vegetables, and all manner of fish and land creatures in the area of Umalas. Now in the modern-day Umalas, people who reside in villas like Villa Mireda can still feel the strong pulse of life and energy in the area. Villa Mireda tries to capture this positive energy with high ceilings and large doors. A garden bridge links the villa to an expansive outdoor swimming pool with a gazebo inspired by traditional Balinese balé that has been transformed into a relaxation cushion underneath a thatched roof. The interior The villa itself may be classified as ‘closed space’, yet again the high ceiling and spacious rooms, coupled with large windows, invite natural sunlight and air into the living room, common hallway, and even the bedrooms. The bedroom is designed with artful minimalism, equipped with queen and king-sized beds with Javanese dark wood frames, a long study desk with a bed of orchids, and a wall of marble that bends light to create fascinating illumination patterns. Downstairs, an ancient wood dinner table, supported by black marble gives you and your future guests an exclusively royal dining experience. At tea time, the “living room” cushion and coffee table accommodate delightful conversations that fill the air with positivity at all times, whether on a bright sunny day or a stormy afternoon. The 4-bedroom villa truly emulates the feel of a 5-star resort. Visit Bali Coconut Living for more villas like this. The world around The villa is located in one of the quiet alleyways of Jl.
