Q: How Much Does it cost to buy a home in Bali?
A: Each apartment has a base price of $130,000 USD. Any upgrades you select will increase this price.
Q: I don't want to live in Bali year round, what are my options?
A: If you prefer living part-time, a 6-month share is available. Your base price would be $65,000 USD. Your home would be shared with another owner, but there will be a lockable wardrobe for your things while you are not in Bali. Only the first 6-month share owner will be able to claim any upgrade discounts.
Q: How much is the maintenance fee, and what does it cover?
A: The fee is $200.00 USD. This fee covers all the upkeep, all utilities (excepting electricity), hot water, and housekeeping, groundskeeping, and pool service, all hazard and liability insurance, and much more.
Q: Do I have to pay the maintenance fee even if I am not living in Bali at the time?
A: If you are a full owner you are required to pay the maintenance fee year round. For partial 6-month share owners, you only have to pay for the 6-month period you own. Since this is a cooperative, maintenance costs are shared to bring considerable savings to everyone.
Q: Why isn't electricity included in the MAINTENANCE fee? Is electricity expensive?
A: Because people's average electrical use varies considerably, we felt it more fair for everyone to pay for their own usage. Your electric bill should be under $20.00 USD per month, obviously this can vary depending on your personal usage.
Q: Do you Provide Financing?
A: While we don't provide direct financing, we can help you work with a lending institution local to where you live.
Q: Do I have to pay taxes in Indonesia?
A: There is no income tax imposed on pensioners. The property taxes are included in the monthly maintenance fees, so you don't need to worry about those, either. There is a 10% tax for hotels, restaurants, and most goods; groceries are not taxed at all. For a complete list of taxes (as of 2015) in Bali, click this link.

Q: Can I bring my Pet?
