“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We book out acc at the last minute and we were excited for our stay, walked in the villa looks absolutely amazing from the second day we got woken up to construction banging from 8am till 5:30pm! This was not relaxing at all we confronted the manager and all we got was a sorry it was right on my bedroom wall and there was def no time for naps, even in the two rooms that were on the other side of the villa could not rest as they could hear it from there room! There was a a family off rats that were running round ontop of the roof ontop of the fridge and underneath ur feet in the outside area. We also complained and nothing was done about it. Breakfast was very basic it did take nearly a hour to cook and the toaster had a lizard crawling in and out of it the night before! Close to eat street and about a 10 min walk to the beach if u don't get lost. One of the rooms did not have a air condition control and all three air cons rattled and sounded like rain from outside. Tellies did not work but DVD players did. Staff were helpful with booking day trips. It was such a beautiful place but all these things were a let Down!

“Lovely villas; great location down a lane from 'Eat Street' (Jalan Oberoi)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa from January 4th - 8th and really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Esmee Villa :)

What we really liked about Esmee Villa:

* We were very happy with the location, down a lane from Jalan Oberoi ("Eat Street" - home to lots of restaurants, bars and shops), although if you want to stay a short walk from the beach, then the location won't work for you
* The pool and gardens were lovely, and well maintained.
* The bedrooms and bathrooms are large and spacious, bright and clean.
* Two of the three bathrooms had large outdoor showers.
* Excellent hot water too.
* Free wifi that was fairly fast by Balinese standards, although did struggle when multiple people were web surfing at the same time.
* Fast, cheap laundry service is available through the villa staff.
* There was a phone in the villa that you could use free of charge to dial local numbers, and to dial Sylvester, the manager of the villas. This was very handy, especially for reconfirming restaurant bookings.

Where there is room for improvement:
* The breakfast - I suggest asking for a lower rate that does not include breakfast for two reasons: (1) it was very basic (eggs, toast + jam, sausages, juice and watermelon and you could make your own tea and coffee via tea bags and Nescafe instant coffee only - i.e. no grilled tomato, pancakes, omelette with any ingredients other than eggs eg onion, cheese, tomato); (2) the staff come into your villa to make it, and it is a slow process - about 40-50 minutes to basically cook four sets of eggs). We cancelled breakfast on subsequent mornings and had great coffees and extensive menu choices at Grocer & Grind, walking distance from the villa.
* Organising airport pick ups - one couple in our group had booked an airport transfer but this didn't seem to have been communicated to the staff there as no driver turned up.
* This place is difficult to find! The taxi drivers didn't seem to know it and it is quite far down the lane, without signage on ANY of the villa buildings. Our suggestion is to add a sign at the corner of the lane and Jalan Oberoi saying "Villa Esmee - [##] metres down this lane", and also to put a sign on each villa, "Villa Esmee - No. [#]".
* Some mosquito coils would have been handy, as we couldn't find them at the local store and there were quite a few mosquitoes.
* One of the two open air showers didn't have fly-wire - I suggest adding it to avoid mosquitoes.
* The airconditioner in two of the rooms made a whirring sound, sounded like it needed a service - so saying it did work very well in terms of keeping the rooms nice and cool.
* Some extra sun lounges would have been nice (there were 2 sun lounges, 1 long lounge chair, and then 4 x normal chairs - for a 3 BR villa it would have been great to have at least 4 sun lounges).

“Convenient!”

I travelled with my husband, my 5-year-old daughter and my 2 brothers in middle of February this year. It was our virgin trip to Bali and we had little expectations. Booked a 2-bedroom Esmee Villa for 4 nights. All we wanted was a good-looking villa with a private pool and of course somewhere convenient as we were travelling with a young child.

We had pre-arranged for an airport transfer. Driver was friendly. We arrived too early hence unable to check in yet as the previous guests were still in the midst of checking out. So we head off for lunch at the main Oberoi Street just 5 minutes walk from the Villa. After lunch, we walked back to Villa for check in. Little did we expect, the Villa looks better than in the pictures. I have this habit of going around and check out what's nice and what's not. All is good!

We had a good night's rest. Bed was comfy and very big. Bathroom clean. Pool was awesome. Kitchenette / living area was great with a ceiling fan and natural ventilation. There was even shower facility and a toilet by the side of the pool. The villa gave us an excellent time to rest & relax. There was Wi-Fi within the vicinity. Housekeeper was tolerant and friendly. Owner of the villa was accomodative & responsive. We had power failure on the 2nd night and the owner sent a technician over soon after I emailed her. Luckily, there was Wi-Fi.

Improvement - maybe can include microwave in the kitchen. A covered roof for the shower area. A wider variety of breakfast. That's all! Nothing much as we felt so good throughout the stay there.

Villa was just 10 minutes drive to Ku De Ta & Seminyak beach. 5 minutes drive to Seminyak square. There's supermarket nearby. Pubs, dining places, shops to explore! All at walking distance.

Thanks for the great experience. First impression lasts.

What an excellent stay we have had at Villa Esmee. It's a wonderful villa with a relaxing indoor/outdoor kitchen and living area, sparkling and decent sized villa pool and two large sized and modern bedrooms both with comfortable king beds. The bathrooms are also roomy and I loved the outdoor shower, perfect to have a shower in the rain or sunshine! The villa is maintained daily by two lovely cleaning staff. They are very thorough regularly changing bedding and providing ample changes of towels etc. The villa is fairly new and very clean. The staff also make sure everything is running smoothly. The location is excellent situated close to many restaurants and shops.
