Eyes open.

A warm morning breeze blows in from the ocean, bringing the salty scent and sounds of the crashing waves into your room.

Another day of your new life in Bali begins.

Outside on the balcony of your beachside villa, the sun shines upon an ocean dotted with distant surfers riding cresting waves.

The scent of your breakfast being prepared by your maid (who you pay $120/month) leads you downstairs to your pool-side dining table. A delicious plate of fruits (picked that very morning, of course), a vegetable-packed omelette, bacon, and a cup of the famous Bali Kintamani coffee (totaling about $2 AUD) await you.

Today will be a good day

After a $5/hour full body massage at the spa, you’ll be meeting friends for a delicious Babi Guling (suckling pig, an Indonesian delicacy) lunch.

This afternoon? Maybe yoga. Or a book by the beach. Or shopping in the markets. Or climbing Mt. Batur. Or a night of dancing…you’re really not sure yet.

You do know one thing

Tonight, like every other night of your life in Bali, will see you collapsing into bed exhausted, smiling, and excited for tomorrow.

And this whole lifestyle: the beachside villa, the personal maid, the delicious healthy foods, the daily adventures…it’s all costing you less than $2000 AUD/month.

So you want to join us expats on the Island of the Gods?


It’s a good thing you’ve found this page.

You’ll be living a life of tropical royalty. Delicious and healthy food, your own villa and staff, and a beach-going, coconut-drinking lifestyle.


It’s not so easy to get set up here

Indonesian expat laws are a costly tangle of confusing rules and regulations that threaten to suck up your time, lighten your wallet, and stress you out considerably if you don’t know how to navigate them.

Even basic questions have overly-complex answers:

Where should you live?
In Ubud for the wonderful yoga expat culture? Uluwatu for the surfer’s paradise? Kuta for the night life? Somewhere else?
How to buy a home?
When you do choose a town, how will you buy a home when non-Indonesians can’t own land?
What Visa should you get?
And how will you deal with the frequent renewals they require…avoiding the rules that ask you to leave and re-enter the country every few months?
Should you learn the Indonesian language?
Should you even bother? And what is the best way to learn it?
What is the best way to get around?
Do you want to navigate the chaotic roads yourself, or hire a driver? Either way, how do you find a high quality and inexpensive way of getting around?
How to deal with the police?
How should you deal with the corrupt Balinese traffic police (who will pull you over and ask for bribes, regardless of how law-abiding you are)?
What if you fall in love?
What happens if you fall in love in Bali? If you want to get married?
What do you need to know about healthcare?
What should you do in the case of a medical emergency? If you need medication, how will you find it here? Also, should you invest in vaccinations?
How should you manage your money?
How can you make more of it? How can you avoid “Tourist” prices wherever you go, and pay what the locals pay?
What should you bring with you on your move here?
And what is cheaper and faster to buy on-island?
How can you work in Bali?
Working in Bali is tricky. Find the answers in the ebook. Includes special chapter for someone living in Bali but still working for a company outside of Bali.
Internet & phone?
How can you get the fastest home internet in Bali? And the best phone plan?
These are not easy questions…and no one has ever organised their answers into an easy-to-use resource.
Until now:

10+ years ago, I stepped off the plane and onto Bali soil

Since then, I’ve made (or seen others make) nearly all the mistakes one can make in the face of these problems. I wasted a lot of time, endured a lot of stress, and got myself into legal messes more than once in the process of figuring out how to best answer them.

I’ve learned the hard way

But now I have a furnished three bedroom home for $1250 a year in my favourite part of Bali, a brand-new motorbike on rental, a Balinese girlfriend, an online-generated income, and a mastery of both Bahasa Indonesia and Basa Bali (the Indonesian and Balinese languages) that has earned me many local friends, connections and discounts.

Life is good now

My visa situation is secured and renewals are automatic. My home internet is 7mb down (fast enough for absolutely anything online to run smoothly).

I have a network of interesting and adventurous locals and expats that I spend my days with. I’ve even acquired a local license to cut down on police bribes!

Helping people to get set up here

I have helped over a hundred new expats set up their lives in Bali over the last four years. At first just friends. Then people referred to me by these friends. Eventually word got out and I became a go-to man for expats who needed help setting up and maintaining their lives in Bali.

Over the years, I condensed and refined the method you need to be completely set up in Bali, have all your questions answered (and know which questions to ask in the first place!), and be fully prepared to live in this island paradise for as long as you wish in any way you wish.

I organised and prioritised this method so well that I have been able to successfully and repeatedly get expats fully set up in Bali within 7 days of their first step off the plane.

At a fraction of the price for a consultation

And now I can do it for you… at a fraction of the price you usually have to pay people like me for consulting. All you have to do is read through and follow the easy and clear process I’ve created for you in The Ultimate Guide For Moving To Bali, and you’ll be able to have yourself set up here in 7 days if you wish (or longer if you want to take it slow).

Here’s what people who have bought “The Ultimate Guide for Moving to Bali” have to say:
Dear Steve,

I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't found your ebook. I've been growing so frustrated with the constantly rising cost of living in Australia and have wanted to move to Bali for years now.

My husband always thought it would be too difficult, and that Bali was only meant for a holiday destination. Once I showed him your book, his whole attitude has changed, and now he's the one who can't wait to make the move.

Thanks again, your book was incredibly helpful!

Abbey Longworth, QLD Australia

Hi Steve,

I just wanted to send a quick email to tell you how much my wife and I enjoyed your book. It was easy to read and contained so much information about moving to Bali that I haven't found anywhere else on the internet.

Definitely worth the price of admission and I hope you're free for a couple of Bintangs when we arrive!

John & Amy Cardwell, NSW Australia

Dear Steve,

I've been planning a move to Bali for the past 6 months, and was getting very discouraged about the lack of information about how to do it on the internet. My family thought I was crazy for wanting to pack up and move to a country I knew so little about.

Then I found your book and it explained absolutely everything. It answered ALL of my questions and even a few that I'd never thought of before. This is hands down the best resource I've found online for people wanting to move to Bali.

Toby Haynes, USA

Hey Mate,

Just realized I never sent you an email to t hank you for The Ultimate Guide for Moving to Bali.

I purchased it when I was still living in Australia, and it rteally helped me to make the move. I've now been living in Bali for 6 months, and everything you wrote in the book is completely true.

I think I've saved so much money and time from reading your book. I would have made several mistakes and wasted thousands of dollars if I didn't have all the info you provided in your book.

Cheers mate, I'll recommend your book enthusiastically to anyone who is interested in moving to Bali.

Matthew Bates, NSW Australia
