Makan House Villa & Amenities

This villa room embodies the tranquil beauty of Bali. Natural materials like woven rugs and wooden furniture create a sense of peace, while the open floor plan provides a spacious and airy feel. A queen-sized bed with a four-poster frame invites restful slumber.

The true gem lies beyond the glass sliding door, leading to a private patio. Enjoy meals under the open sky at the dining table, or unwind in the hammock with a sparkling pool view – the perfect way to unwind after exploring.

This room offers seamless access to the kitchen and a private bathroom for seamless convenience. While it’s important to note that you have the entire place to yourselves when you book, the kitchen boasts two entrances: one directly from your room and another exterior entrance going to the other kubo or tent on the property.

Stay Connected, Even in Paradise

Makan House offers fast Wi-Fi throughout the property for those who need to stay connected while unwinding. So, whether you’re a remote worker or want to share your tropical escape with friends and family back home, you can do so with ease.

Dining Options

The fully-equipped kitchen allows you to whip up delicious meals at your convenience. It features a refrigerator to keep your ingredients fresh, a complete cooking set for culinary adventures, and a kettle for that perfect cup of coffee or tea. A dining table with complete utensils and kitchenware provides a comfortable space to enjoy meals. While food delivery services may not be available nearby due to the peaceful location, you can still enjoy the convenience of a well-equipped kitchen. Prepare your own meals or request the caretakers to purchase groceries for you (an additional fee may apply).

Convenient Bites & Stores

Need to restock on essentials quickly? No worries! A convenient Alfamart is just a 5-minute drive away, offering frozen goods, personal care products, and more. For a wider selection, the public market and familiar fast food chains like Jollibee are also accessible within a 15 to 20 minute drive from the resort.

Bathroom/Shower Area

Step into a symphony of natural textures in the villa’s beautifully designed shower. It’s a perfect blend of Balinese style and modern comfort. The semi-outdoor shower area features bamboo pipe walls, creating a unique and sustainable element that whispers “eco-conscious retreat.” This unique outdoor bathroom prioritizes nature while offering separate areas for showering and toileting. Large stone slabs create a natural walkway, providing a comfortable and well-drained surface. A shower curtain separates the showering area from the toilet for privacy. For added convenience, a clothes ladder allows you to hang towels or swimsuits within easy reach.

After exploring, smooth stones underfoot offer excellent drainage and a surprising massage for tired feet. These stones feel natural and provide a practical, non-slip surface, bringing the rustic charm of the outdoors right into your shower experience. For the perfect shower experience, you have not one, but two showerheads, plus a handheld option – ideal for rinsing off after a day of adventure or showering with your partner.


Makan House welcomes well-behaved pets, making it a haven for those who love to dine out with their furry companions. For those planning to bring their pets, here’s what to know about their pet policy:

  • One (1) small breed pet is free of charge.
  • Two (2) small breed pets will incur an additional charge of ₱500.

For the comfort and safety of all guests, Makan House kindly requests that pets be kept on a leash in public areas, properly diapered to avoid accidents and that their owners clean up any messes promptly.

About the Owners

Makan House is a labor of love from Dylan Raymundo and Billy Joe Pascual, a married couple for 4 years and partners for 17 years. More than just business partners, their passion for travel and creating a welcoming space is evident in every detail of Makan House. Originally built as a vacation home, Dylan and Billy Joe, who work as seafarers on a cruise ship, decided to share this beautiful haven with the public when they’re away at sea.


We absolutely loved our stay at Makan House! The place was impeccably clean and the caretakers Christine and Warren were incredibly accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. We felt so welcome and relaxed throughout our entire visit.

If you’re looking for a beautiful escape, Makan House definitely won’t disappoint. We’re already planning our next trip back! And let me tell you, the place is super Instagrammable. So pack your most stylish outfits and get ready to capture some envy-inducing content for your social media feeds!
