We booked this villa without knowing too much about Seminyak so to be fair, perhaps this was our mistake. First the good: the staff are super friendly and helpful. They took care of all our needs and were very responsive. Fantastic. Villa nightly rate included breakfast cooked at the villa each morning. Wasn't gourmet but was satisfying and cooked to order.
The rooms are nice and the bathrooms are very spacious. Air-con worked perfectly. Wi-Fi is available for free. Splash pool is smallish but was perfect for our needs. Clean and maintained daily. A tiny lawn was on the grounds and was fun to have a mini-picnic on.
The not so good. Really the location is very unappealing and is the single reason we would not return here. There is a shanty-town literally next store. This is a mini-village of plywood shacks where people live on the edge of a rice paddy. You can see people showering in a plywood communal shower. The "road" to get to the villa is a pot hole ridden track that runs behind the much nicer Bahavala villa and is littered with garbage. No taxi driver knows where this villa is so you have to learn to orient them via better known villas.
You are, in theory, within walking distance to the main streets of Seminyak but this is, trust me, a very unpleasant walk (and not one you want to undertake at night given the two extreme blind hairpin turns you have to navigate along with the insane driving of people on scooters as well as trucks).
so there you go.
