Excellent service, rental transportation was waiting for us when we arrived, we were immediately greeted by staff. Very modern and clean interior. Pool was maintained immaculately. Perfect base camp for our local activities. Excellent local fishing, diving and food.
We lived in BALI for a few years, and we were so glad to stayed in this place for get away. Impecable place, service & help from the beautiful staff. We will come back for sure... Big thanks villa Mimba
Casa Mimba lies in an area close to Padangbai which is called Mimba. There are some other villas in the area and a few hostels, but Casa Mimba is something you would hardly stumble over by coincident. It is access by a tiny road surrounded by forrest and with the ocean a kid's stone throw away. The villa was fully refurbished three years ago, so everything is in excellent conditions. If you have come for true tranquility, you have come to the right spot. You will have your own private swimming pool, get breakfast by the staff in the morning, and fall asleep at night to the sound of the ocean nearby. The whole villa is beautiful, and we had a great time relaxing there. There are a total of three bedrooms available, but since the price is per room, it is affordable also for just one couple. This gives a couple traveling by themselves an opportunity to stay in a big villa that otherwise would be too expensive. The pool is big enough to swim in (maybe 12x5m, and depth is 1.2-1.5m), and is cleaned daily by the staff. There are sun beds with beach towels besides. Some of the sun beds will give you a tanning opportunity, while others will be in the shadow. Which cater for both desires. The living room is spacious, and there is a telly with a respectable amount of channels, plus a great deal of DVDs. The dining table is huge, and of massive tree. The kitchen is fully equipped for any chef, and the gas stove is huge. There is a toilet downstairs and a shower by the pool, and I believe all bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with toilets and showers. Our bedroom was on second floor, and was big enough to leave two suitcases open on the floor without bothering us when walking around the bed. It has a desk as well as a comfortable bed. There is plenty of wardrobe space as well. The second bedroom is just nextby and I believe it is identical. The third floor contains of the third bedroom and a living area, but this was closed for maintenance when we where there. On the negative side, I would say the breakfast included was very basic. The smell of the anti-mosquito machines where a bit annoying (but kept them away). The beach nearby was filthy and the sand were big-grained and rather sharp. No point going there basically. The sea view is only partly, and just from second and third floor. I found the wild life there fascinating. During daytime there was a red dragonfly nearby the pool I have never seen before, and during night time bats came to drink from the pool (they drink flying). Also there where the standard lizards here and there, a grasshopper that came and said hello. If this paragraph freaks you out, then you better look somewhere else. My wife is scared of spiders, but she was also fine here. Padangbai is a 20 min walk away, and you can hire scooters locally to ease your discovery of the area. Hardly any risk of being stopped by the police here BTW it seems. Hardly anyone used helmets. Be aware that it is not much happening in Padangbai. People come here to dive or to travel to Gili Island among other island attractions. There are nevertheless some restaurants and bars, which won't be overcrowded. At the end I would like to thank the friendly staff that kept everything clean and tidy, and Emilia (the owner) for her quick responds on WhatsApp to any of my request!…
We enjoyed our weekend away very much. The house had everything you need and is an oasis. The black beach is quiet and great for long walks, and its just a few meters away. The 3 bedrooms are comfy and all amenities comolete. We loved it!
Great place to stay if you are after peace and quiet. Nice facilities, staff and breakfast. Downsides are definitely the lack of a pool and the distance to town for restaurants etc. as it is not an easy walk especially in the evening so you need a driver often. Cooking facilities seem good if you feel like it.
