We are a Sydney-based travel marketing agency working in partnership with one of Bali’s most respected real estate agencies.

We know there are a lot of villas in Bali. We also know that there are a lot of booking sites for Bali holiday villa rentals.

Many of our clients keep coming back because they know they can trust us & that we will do everything in our power to make sure they have a wonderful Bali holiday experience.

Here’s what a few of our customers say about us:

‘Had a wonderful stay at Villa Santai booked through Bali Villa Escapes. The booking process was very smooth and our villa was wonderful.’

– Kim Evans

‘We were celebrating my 60th – it was perfect. Great location, staff went above and beyond. Rooms were huge, neat and clean. Couldn’t fault anything. Would definitely recommend anyone travelling with a group of family or friends. Will definitely stay again. Thank you so very much.’

– Bonnie Malam

‘Awesome villa. Great friendly staff and perfect location! Thanks for a super holiday!’

-Tara Desai

“I dealt with Dhiah months before our trip to Bali. She found us the perfect villa in our price range and even sorted out transport for us. Would definitely book with Bali Villa Escapes again’

– Tracy Shaw

‘We stayed at the Chakara Villas (Anahata) in Seminyak. The welcome was warm and informative. Initially we thought that the location was somewhat isolated from the main areas of Seminyak but once were given great guidance from a hand drawn map we found the location ideal – far enough away for quiet and seclusion but close enough for access to Seminyak proper.
The staff who provided the daily service were friendly yet unobtrusive.
The layout of the villa was ideal for the two couples.
We will certainly consider using Bali Villa Escapes in the future and staying at this or a similar villa.
Thanks and regards’

– Ron and Jan

The communication prior to booking was excellent. The villa exceeded are expectations; it was modern but homely, clean and had everything you needed! We was greeted by a member of staff that explained she’d be at our villa from 9-3pm to do any cleaning or help organise things to do for us. She was amazing and kept the villa sparkling! The pool was cleaned while we was there too. Couldn’t believe the service for the price. 1350 aus dollars for 10 days! Amazing! Will definitely used this company again.

– Michael Smith

We manage a huge network of villas in Seminyak, Berawa, Canggu, Uluwatu, Legian and other prime tourist spots around Bali, which means Bali Villa Escapes is able to advise you on the perfect villa for your next holiday. We offer you not only affordable villa rental rates, but we can also arrange in-house staff that are fully trained to cater for your every need. Most of our villas come with their own security personnel for peace of mind, housekeepers, a private pool and, in some cases, a private chef & concierge service.

About the founder

Steven Waldberg is a Sydney based entrepreneur who started Bali Villa Escapes back in 2005

Steven Waldberg   is the founder of Bali Villa Escapes and decided that there had to be a better way to book Bali holiday villas. Steven identified a problem with the normal Bali villa booking process; namely that if the villa you wanted was booked out, you had to go back to the drawing board and trawl through hundreds of villas listings to find a similar one. This was a common issue among the larger villa website and Online Travel Agents. People wanted to speak or have contact with a real person with intimate knowledge of Bali and get as much information as they can about their prospective holiday villa options.

The Bali Villas Escapes booking process was designed to solve this problem. The reservations team can match the right villa to each customer’s individual requirements & budgets. The best part? It’s often cheaper than competitor websites.

Steven is a marketing expert who specialises in online villa marketing,  has been to Bali countless  times, loves the culture, it’s friendly people and obviously the villa way of life.  Steven is a passionate surfer and knows southern Bali better than most people. He has been there well over 100 times over the past decade and has seen Bali transform into a major tourist hub for travellers worldwide; especially the Australian market.

For this reason he is able to pass on his wealth of experience and knowledge about Seminyak, Batu Belig, Berawa, Uluwatu, Jimbaran and Canggu. He is based in the Sydney office ( Holt St, Surry Hills ) and is more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the area, what’s  the best restaurants, which are the most family friendly cafes, what to do if your coming to Bali with kids and most importantly; what’s the best holiday villa for your next trip.

You will find that Steven spends his days divided between early morning surfs at Echo Beach in Canggu or  Kuta  reef and visiting places of interest throughout Bali so he can pass this information on to you. Whether it’s a new hipster cafe in Canggu that’s just opened up or a great new pop up shop in Seminyak; Steven will have been there most likely before anyone else.

Steven is the author of many travel guides on this website and has taken lots of informative videos which you watch on our Bali Villa Escapes YouTube channel so you can get a better idea of where to go, where to shop, what it’s like in Bali, what to do and what not to do plus some of the quirky things that often happen on the island. He has also been recently published in Australian Readers Digest as an authority on Bali villa holidays – see article here

‘Every time I come to Bali I try to take as many videos as I can so fellow travellers will have a better understanding of the areas they intend to visit such as Seminyak, Canggu, Berawa and Legian’.


Steven says: ‘ I have created dozens of videos like the one above which are a no nonsense approach to what’s happening in Bali, all the ‘in places’ and what’s currently popular in terms of dining, shopping, partying, sporting and entertainment’.
