Narelle made her first visit to Bali in 1971 and has been visiting on a regular basis ever since. When Narelle first saw the Village of Cepaka, it was love at first sight, although the challenges at that time were many, and she was the very first Westener to build a home here. That construction programme gave the 'locals' their first jobs close to their homes. There is an enclave of 12 Westeners with homes here now, and the construction jobs and the staffing required by each of the Villas has changed the villager's lifestyle forever. Narelle enjoys the respect and love of the Balinese people who acknowledge her contribution to the Village of Cepaka, in job creation and their newly acquired standard of living Narelle is anxious to share all of her experiences with each of our guests, and her insight into the local customs and beliefs are beyond compare. The simplicity of life in this gorgeous village is awe inspiring, and lessons for us all are abundant.
