My businesses in Bali

Real Estate in Bali

Jeroen Franken Bali

Like I said, we, my partners and I, started a real estate developing company about 20 years ago in North Bali. At first it was low profile, but after a few years we really took of. We had even to dissapoint some people with long waiting times before we could start building their villa. In 2009 we thought it was a good idea to sell the company, and take it a bit more easy, it had been very busy. We, my wife and I, went back to the Netherlands, and started a new business there. But it didn't take long before we both longed to be in Bali again. Bali grabbed our soul and kept calling.

Bali Calling - Tropis Living

So we went back and started from scratch again. In the meantime some problems had risen about properties our now sold company had been involved with. It took long, too long, before I, with the help of my new local partner and friend Nyoman, could start solving those problems. We found the best possible solutions however, and we started a new real estate company named "Tropis Living". Nyoman had been had been building homes for foreigners already, and with my experience the choice had been easy. I met Roland Leyten and he joined us, with his vast experience in building. Several others followed and we now have an architect, lawyer and many building staff employed. Besides developing new real estate projects we also became an agent for existing properties. Recently we aquired some existing real estate websites in order to improve our visiblity on Internet. We already for some time added maintanance and renovation to our services.

Bali Rentals - Palm Living

Many people owning a villa in Bali want to see some return on their investment and rent out their villa. It can be a lot of work however, so we started Palm Living where we provide villa rental services. We are growing to a full service real estate agency, we sell, build, maintain and rent out.

Spice Beach Club Bali

My partner Nyoman had a small restaurant in the Lovina area, named Tropis Bistro. At a given time we thought about expanding the restaurant and we found a partner in Bali Spice Dive, because their diving business at the beach had a perfect location to turn into a Beach Club. And on Valentines day 2013 we had an opening party. Besides good food we provide entertainment, both modern and traditional. Spice Beach is chosen many times for wedding or birthday parties. We have a boutique where my partner Rolands wife Amelia sells her fashion, and the diving school is doing well. Look at the website: Spice Beach Club Bali

Alcovina in Lovina

My new love Rose has started a wine / liquor store in Lovina, named Alcovina, see Alcovina Liquor Store and I help whenever I am needed. Alcovina has plans to expand to other areas in Bali. The store is close to the real estate office of Tropis Living and the Spice Beach Club.

I am grateful for the opportunities Bali has given me, and the people who I work with, local and foreign.
