This neighborhood has a decent amount of places to work outside the house.

Sanur is the most family-friendly spot on the island with a huge community of online workers. This town may often seem busy but it also comes with miles of sandy beaches, cycle paths that follow the ocean, and plenty of highly-rated schools nearby. But it's not just restricted to families; plenty of younger people head to Sanur if they're more interested in living a low-key lifestyle rather than partying every weekend. This coastal town is peaceful and friendly, a place punctuated with brightly-colored fishing boats and where crime is pretty much non-existent. 

Better yet, Sanur harbor is a brilliant jumping point for exploring the rest of Indonesia, with daily boats running to and from the Nusa islands as well as further afield spots like the Gili Islands and Lombok. It's possible to surf in Sanur and it's also renowned for its nearby scuba diving and snorkeling spots.  Expect a stronger Balinese culture here, with plenty of hidden gems tucked away down side streets serving up delicious Indonesian food. The Sanur Night Market, which you might recognize as the Sindhu Market on Jalan Pungutan, is a great place for trying local delicacies at local prices.
