We visited in January 2010 and stayed in villa sambawa for a week. It was our first time in a villa and there is no way now my husband would go back to a hotel!
When we arrived home I immediately contacted Ainslie and confirmed sambawa & semara for my fathers 70th in January 2011 with extended family. We had another fantastic holiday, as there was 14 of us we tended to congregate in Samara, but anyone that wanted quiet time could go to Sambawa to have time out!
Both villas are spotlessly clean throughout the day, though there is a resident bat that unfortunately sleeps above the lounge in Semara during the night and makes an awful mess. The housegirls are very quick to clean it up on their arrival so it wasnt any real problem (the bat tended to sleep in the same spot each night, so nobody was keen to sit in the chair directly below if chatting and drinking late at night!). The staff have tried to stop the bat coming into the villa with blinds etc, but to no avail.
The villas are in a fantastic location within walking distance to Legian & Seminyak. Bintang supermarket is about a 20min stroll, the housegirls will get beer, soft drink etc for you just give them the money in advance. There are plenty of taxi's coming down the alley road at the front of the villas off double six, usually we only had a short wait. My brother-inlaw hired a car for a few days and left it out the front of the villa. Security is there 24/7 and we felt very secure.
I think the villas are perfect and hope that we can stay again in the not too distant future.
