These are beautiful townhouses of a contemporary design that are hidden away down a quiet little road in Petitenget, or greater Seminyak.  It is a 5 minute walk to a surfing beach which we visited at night because there is a wonderful restaurant directly on the beach called La Lucciola which has great food and great prices.  The wine did not have wonderful prices but all of Bali has expensive wine.  Cicada has townhouses which we stayed in and the number we stayed at was # 2.  It is approximately 2000 square feet on two floors.  The living room is very spacious and the private plunge pool is out the back to cool off in.  The kitchen does not have an oven or a dishwasher but Cicada provides a beautiful breakfast with your rental that they bring into your kitchen and lay it all out for you and then come by later and clean it all up.   There is 3 bathrooms total in the townhouse and one is on the main floor.  The upstairs holds the two large bedrooms and outdoor bathrooms.  It was our first experience with an outdoor washroom and it was kind of cool.  The beds are very comfortable and we slept well.
Cicada is close to many things and you can walk to great shopping at Seminyak Square and then all the way up and down Seminyak Street.  There is a wonderful traditional Balinese spa called Body Works which is a 5 minute walk from Cicada. rates this property very highly.  For a great referral to a driver that rocks see Made’s Transportation owned by Made and Buti who were two drivers that run a business together and they have two new vans and they are very good safe drivers and they have very good prices like 90,000 IDR from Nusa Dua to Seminyak and 350,000 IDR for a full day of sightseeing to Ubud.  Made’s phone number is  #08178742125.  Made’s email is to prebook from the airport if you wish.  We should have taken them instead of a metered taxi from the airport because we had to have our luggage on our lap because the trunk space is not large in the metered taxi.
