We have just finished a blissful 6-night stay in the Lime villa and have loved every minute! This is one of those places that is so good that you almost don't want to let other people in on the secret - particularly as villas with indoor living space are very rare in Bali.
This followed somewhat of a saga as we had had big issues with our original villa agency (original villa pre-booked, then told 5 days before coming that there were construction works on the fenceline and we couldn't stay there; replacement villa was TOTALLY unsuitable for a toddler with stairs, unfenced pool, open living; replacement after that was safer but just not up to scratch) and we have been blown away by our good luck in being able to book here with 1 day's notice!
We knew it was going to be great the second we walked in and saw the archway covered with hibiscus vines...The villa itself is huge, spacious, tastefully decorated, and absolutely spotless. The pool is big and beautiful, and there is a good-sized area of garden and lawn as well. The owners, Alex & Alex (and their gorgeous kids and dog) live on-site and this makes a HUGE difference to security, convenience, and a general feeling of being at home. Knowing we had an 18mo daughter, the staff had set up a cot (complete with soft toys and sleeping bag!), high chair, and sacks of age-appropriate toys and books. Over the following days, fun new toys kept appearing in our villa - a trike, a doll stroller, a pool ring, bath toys - which we were later told had been handpicked by the owner's little girls. There are no knick-knacks or sharp edges for little ones to injure themselves, and plenty of room for them to spread out and play (both inside and outdoors).
For us big people - the location (away from the crowds, on a quiet street) and the beauty and comfort of the surroundings made for a really relaxing stay, and we were more than happy spending time in the villa as well as exploring around Seminyak and Legian.
Staff are WONDERFUL. Big love to Aldi, it is lovely to have such a friendly face around all the time. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and staff here, and we truly felt at home.
BYO soap and shampoo. Kitchen is well-equipped. There's a supermarket on the corner and the massive Bintang supermarket is 5 minutes away by taxi.
Thank you VERY much to the whole team at Balicosy - we would not stay anywhere else in Seminyak now!
