This post is a little snapshot of 3 pads I adore in Bingin, that are kid-friendly and will work with bubs and toddlers and all have pool fence options at no extra charge. They are managed by Bali Retreats, who in my experience are great to deal with and can organise airport transfers with car seats. I have written a more comprehensive review of each of these pads if you want more detailed info.

Bingin Beach

Fraser Baye

Two gorgeous villas make up Fraser Baye - Villa Satu & Villa Dua, which can be rented individually or together. Owned by an Aussie family, Fraser Baye, is a standout family-friendly holiday pad. The villas are on the same property and have a lovely pool in between with a glass pool fence. Pool toys, cots, high chairs, toys etc., are all part of the deal here. There is a lovely little kitchen pod on site so the lovely staff can whip up early kiddy dinners, lunch and snacks. I have stayed here with a big gang of families (6 adults and 6 kids under 5) and we all agree that our kids LOVED it, and so did we. We are already planning next years trip.

Villa Satu & Villa Dua - 3 bedrooms & 1 bathroom in each villa.

5 adults or 4 adults & 2 children per villa

From $250 AUD+ p/n per villa approx

Acacia Bungalows

Whoever decorated and designed these pads can do a makeover of my house any day. 4 funky little bungalows make up Acacia Bungalows in Bingin. They are managed by Bali Retreats who can organise a pool fence for each of the 3 properties at no extra cost. These bungalows can be rented individually or together for a bigger bash. Two bungalows on the same property with a large and divine shared pool. The other two bungalows are next door but completely separate with their own smaller pool. I've had a good sneak peak at them and think they look divine. A friend stayed here recently at my recommendation with her 18 month old bub and said it was fantastic.

Big Barrels

Big Barrels at Bingin on the spectacular Bukit Peninsula in southern Bali is a lovely, tasteful and comfy new private villa. With an optional pool fence (free of charge) and all the baby and toddler stuff already there, a kitchen, and an enclosed courtyard this place ticks lots of boxes for families with tiny tots wanting an easy comfy holiday pad. I haven't stayed here. It's on my wishlist!

I have stayed at Fraser Baye, and had a good nosey of Acacia Bungalows. Acacia Bungalows and Big Barrels are on my wishlist. I've read every review for these pads (some of them many times), been in contact with Bali Retreats who manages them with lots of questions, studied every photo, and read anything else possible I could find about them on blogs, travel sites, review sites, etc. I would love any feedback, or comments if you have stayed at these places. I have done my best to be as accurate as possible, but please let me know if I have gotten anything wrong. I don't have any affiliation with Bali Retreats and Im not getting any freebies or incentives for this post.
