In the fall of 2017, after looking at a few beach front properties in North Bali, I decided to buy a plot of land and build my own house. I worked closely with Evy Handayani and Roland Leyten from Tropis Living for the land purchase, and then with Roland for designing and building my dream villa. I must say, it was very easy to work with Roland, despite the fact that I was not located in Bali. We communicated by email and chat. After settling on a design, construction began. Roland sent me pictures weekly and was responsive to any questions, comments and design changes. Construction proceeded on-schedule and within budget, and everything was done in a professional manner and to a high standard. It took about 9 months to complete construction. Upon completion, since Roland and I had gotten along so well and he had met all my expectations, I continued to work with him to decorate and furnish the villa. Nothing left now except to enjoy. A big thank-you to Roland, Evy and the rest of the staff at Tropis Living. I highly recommend them for villa sales, or land sales and villa construction.
