My family and I stayed 2x with balivillas.com - once in 2003 and the 2nd time in 2008. Subsequently stayed in 2009 in a villa not managed by balivillas because the former was slightly cheaper - big mistake!! The villa was terrible, and the service was only so-so (we had kind of expected the same level of service that we'd enjoyed under balivillas). In 2010, we stayed at a villa in Ubud but unfortunately balivillas had only Villa Dhyan which was unavailable. That other villa (I've done a review as well - Villa Kanti) was good but service was still not as great as balivillas'. So although the 2 villas we stayed at don't seem to be available on balivillas.com anymore, I'm writing this review basically to recommend the company because my family and I were truly happy with their service.
Their staff were well-trained, particularly the servants in the villas who were attentive without being intrusive. We especially liked their cooks who could whip up Balinese, western as well as Asian dishes, from starters to mains to dessert. And we found that all the staff from the butler to the house-servants to the driver were great with children - I guess generally Balinese are gentle people who genuinely love children.
