The Dogs

As Villa Sansil is located on beach we are regularly confronted with dumped dogs and puppies. Balinese people cannot afford sterilisation or vet costs, so if a dog gets sick they dump it on the beach hoping the gods will take care. Also female dogs are not welcome as they will get babies. So we regularly take care of puppies and find them new homes.

Therefore the amount of dogs on the grounds vary: of course there is a hard core of dogs that stay, mainly because we love them. They are friendly and will seek your affection if you are into dogs. If not – they will leave you in peace.

So Villa Sansil is the perfect getaway for dog lovers. To maintain cleanliness, we do not allow dogs in the bedrooms or on furniture However, you are free to take them for a walk on the Bali sands, and they are your backup security system in case of any unwanted guests – though Seseh beach is a very safe neighborhood.
