General description

  • Main home
My house is very basic, 3 bedrooms (guest room, my room and animal room, outside bathroom with cold water shower and western toilet and a better bathroom with hot water tied to my bedroom., amazing outdoor kitchen with all you need to cook, indoor living room and small garden,
Guest room has 2 pers. bed, mosquito net and a fan. If you want to use my room with aircon, that's ok also. I will ask for €65 a month for electricity and internet. I pay all in advance before I leave, 6 months electricity, internet and food stock for the animals. I live on a very tight budget, that's why I have to ask for money for the electricity and internet.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 2 dogs
  • 4 cats
  • Fish
  • Farm animals
I am looking for an adventurous couple (or 1 person) with a big love for animals and ready for  change in their lives. They must not be easily scared, tough enough to handle an earthquake, soft enough to talk to my pets like they were little humans :).
Besides that, if you, or one of you is handy fixing things, that is a big plus!
Because in this time span something might break and need fixing (like leaking tap/pipe or such) Also it would be good if you know how to ride a scooter or at least are willing to learn this, since we have no other transport around here.

I live here for 12 years. I have 2 Bali dogs, and 4 cats, a house and garden to look after.

I am going  out of the country because I have to leave Bali every 6 months for visa run.
This time I want to go to Europe to work and visit my kids and family and my 2nd grandchild will be born in November.,for a longer period if possible.
My white dog, Putih, can under no circumstances go free outside. The drop in, Tootsie, is half free roaming.

- Putih, a white Bali dog.
She is not allowed to walk free, she loves scaring the locals, biting scared little kids and fighting some dogs (she's white trash and lived her previous life in a trailer park in South USA!). She does have doggy friends also. She is also attached to a rope when home. She acts like a bully when walking outside but she is actually very sweet!
She is a rescue dog and had a tough start in life.

-Tootsie, brindle teenager Bali dog. She comes on walks and goes free on the beach.

Then there are the cats,  at the moment 4 of them.
I will introduce them to you when you arrive here.
They pretty much live their lives by themselves, they will come  for some cuddling :) I cook fish and rice for them, as for the dog also, twice a week.
There is always dry food and fresh water available for my animals.The bowls are kept full, fresh water every day.

Besides that, other tasks are keeping the house clean and water the garden, feed the fish and keep the pond and garden clean.
Normally I takes me around  two and a half hours a day to walk the dog and keep the house and garden up to date.I have to sweep or vacuum and mop the floor, clean the kitchen (which is outside) and garden every day.
The other rooms and garage (falling apart) you can clean as you like, as long as I get everything back in the same state I left the house.
Of course all is done with love and respect.

I've been riding the covid19 wave here and it has been very relaxed with no worries at all .
I live in a fisherman village in Amed area, at the feet of the holy mount Agung, Bali. Here is THE diving spot of Bali. We still have breath taking reefs that makes this the perfect snorkeling spot and in the top 5 of worlds best diving spots.

The real Bali is still here. My house is near the beach, but it's not quiet since I live with the local people, you will be in midst of local life. They can be loud sometimes.
The Balinese children are a joy to watch, every day around sunset you will find them (and me) on the beach. Their smiles are a true source of energy!

The local people here like to chat with you and will ask you many questions out of curiosity. They are extremely friendly, and smile a lot.

We have NO crime at all here in my village!
I have unlimited WIFI.

Google "Bali Amed" and you'll find lots of info about this place on earth there.

I have an amazing group of friends that will help with any advice.
I always make an whatsapp group for communication. We have a Facebook group where you can post any questions about Amed. Lots of expats know the answer for sure!

We have no public transportation around here.
You really need to ride motorbike (the best transport for discovering the Amed area) or rent bicycle to get around!
I have 2 old motorbike that you can use. They havo no papers nor insurance and can only be used around Amed (from cullik to saraya, a stretch of about 30 km)
If you want to go sightseeing further, you need to rent a good motorbike, for about 40k a day or 600k a month.
