“Nice home but could improve”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed for 6 nights. Visually the home is stunning and the pool in the center fantastic. Rully who cleaned up and made us breakfast, was a star. Quiet, polite and just a nice man. We had problems with our air conditioning units. They weren't working properly. Dola, who was managing the property - was excellent in her swift response to fix the issue. The water pressure in the two bathrooms (actually not separate bathrooms at all - much to our displeasure - no wall in-between - so my friend and I had to warn each other when we were using the toilet/shower etc) was very poor, a weak water flow. Ended up using my friends shower in the master bedroom which was perfect. They could work on improving the other 2 bathrooms if possible with water pressure. Every second day, we did get a funky sewer type smell around the pool area - which we commented on and found unpleasant.

Pros:
great looking house
extremely quiet - which was bliss
Rully and Dola who worked for the property - who were quick to respond to our needs or to fix something. Rully with his lovely breakfasts and kept our rooms/living area clean (thank you)
Good location - in a european expat area.

Cons:
Air Con - had issues with two air cons
2 bathrooms attached to wooden hut rooms - no wall in between bathrooms and zero water pressure in the shower
Unpleasant smell around the pool on certain days
Beds too hard for my personal preference - could do with an option of a mattress topper. I did ask for one, but this request didn't transpire.

“Amazing, beautiful, faultless”
Reviewed November 21, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Even when we tried, we couldn't think of one thing we could fault during our stay through The Bali Agent. This time last year we stayed in Villa Ruku Ruku and this time we stayed in Villa Gambar. From the moment we walked in the door, we felt relaxed and at ease. The service we received from Dolla and Ruli was faultless with our every need being met. Without doubt, we will be staying through The Bali Agent in the future and recommending to all our friends. Thank you Benjamin and staff! X

“A blissfull 8 days”
Reviewed September 17, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and I spent a blissfull 8 days at Villa Gambar in Umalas. With a great pool and open air living it was even better than the photos! Rully who helped clean and cook in the morning and Dolla who is the manager couldn't do enough, from organising food, massages and a scooter it was no trouble at all.I can also recommend the local cafe Monsieur Spoon and Nook both 2 min on a scooter. Thanks Ben you really have got it spot on! Julian & Sue

“Life is better in Canggu”
Reviewed September 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent 5 nights at Villa Gambar, in a group of 6. The villa is better than photos, a calm and relaxing retreat corner away from Bali streets' energy. Outside, pure Canggu style: scootering in rice fields for the 10 minutes ride to the beach, laid back atmosphere, green area, neat cafés and warungs, good vibes. Yet, for those interested, Seminyak main clubs at just 10 mins ride on the other side. Service impeccable - everything available on-demand: airport pick-up, scooters at home, daily massage, indonesian private dinners. Personnel always available and kind. Canggu dreamin'.

“Perfect Vacation Villa for a Therapeutic Family Bonding Session”
Reviewed June 20, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

person found this review helpful

I am a frequent traveler to Bali and I have been staying in many villas and hotels throughout the island. This time, I decided to bring my mother and my niece, as it was their first time visiting Bali. I decided to stay in this Villa, as it was perfect for an elderly woman (my mother is 65 years old) and for my niece to rest, relax and most importantly, for the three of us to spend good quality time as a family. This villa is absolutely elderly and children friendly.

The villa is strategically located in a quiet, peaceful and friendly neighborhood in Umalas, which is in between Seminyak and Canggu. We chose this neighborhood simply because its easy for us to get to the shopping district of Seminyak (less than 10 minutes by car) and also near to two beaches (Batu Belig beach and the surfers beach near Canggu). There are restaurants and a supermarket nearby the villa, which is convenient for us to get our lunch and dinner. The ATM is just around the corner (5 minutes walk) at the supermarket near the villa. There are also paddy fields in and around this neighborhood, which you wont miss as you travel in and our of this street.

This villa has been wonderfully decorated with modern furniture and fixtures with bright colours. What makes this villa even unique is that 60% of the structure is made out of strong timber wood, which gives us an amazing experience of living in a traditional wooden house which is typically found in the villages of Bali. My mother simply enjoyed the interioir design of this villa. The villa also has a huge majestic swimming pool that has a shallow depth on one of its end, so that children such as my niece can enjoy their swimming session without the fear of getting drowned. There are 3 bedrooms in this villa (two master bed room and 1 children's room) and it has its own bathroom attached to each bedroom. The two master bedrooms comes with a queen size bed while the children's room has two single beds. You will definitely enjoy the hand painted murals on the walls of the bedrooms, it was simply stunning! All of the bedrooms are equipped with a cupboard, a digital safe, TV with satelite channels, and a DVD player. Overall, the villa can comfortably accomodate 6 people, with an extra room space for extra beds if you have more guests.

We spent most of our time as a family in the living room area, which is near the kichen that comes with a bar. Whatever that we needed from the fridge or the kichen was indeed reachable distance from the living room. Right in front of the living room is the majectic swimming pool that I mentioned earlier. At night, we feel very safe and secured as there is a security guard that will be on duty, patroling the street outside the villa.

The caretaker (Mr Rully) has been very kind and hospitable towards my family and I. Not to forget, he is one very multi-talented caretaker. He will come in the morning to prepare us breakfast every day, and he will then continue his daily routine of cleaning the villa till 3pm. Rully is a very talented chef as he can cook anything that you would like to indulge on. All we needed to do was to provide him with some money for him to buy the ingredients and other grocery items, and he will then propose to you the menu for breakfast, lunch or even dinner. Rully was also very helpful to call and arrange for a masseur to come to the villa and provide a therapeutic massage for my mother. On the days where we decided to go visit the touristic places in Bali, Rully would help us to call for a private driver at a very good cost to bring us on a day trip to Ubud and Mount Kintamani. My family and I really enjoyed the journey that we had in the comfortable 8 seater van that Rully hired for us.
On the final night that we stayed it the villa, we decided to host a small party and invited 8 other guests to the villa, to celebrate my niece's birthday. Again, Rully cooked us 3 wonderful Indonesian dishes for us to feast on. My niece had an unforgettable birthday celebration in Bali.

We stayed in this villa for 5 nights and we enjoyed every moment we had there. It is truly a perfect place for a family to bond and spend quality time together. We will definitely stay in this villa again when we visit Bali soon. I highly recommend families with children or even a large group of friends to consider renting this villa when you visit Bali. It was a wonderful and magical experience for us and we hope the future guests of this villa will enjoy their stay at this villa as much as we did.

“Peaceful, chic and with an abundance of flair”
Reviewed June 12, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

How can so much flair and taste be packed into one single villa?! Art and designer furniture bring an exquisite atmosphere into this homey villa. The open, half-outdoor spaces are organized around the long and refreshing pool. Only the 3 bedrooms are enclosed.

I stayed in the "monkey room" with paintings on the wooden walls. With it's twin beds it would be a wonderful, cosy shelter for kids.

Ruli, who takes care of the property, is a sweet heart and cooked a yummy breakfast for us, so we could just enjoy and relax, and he would even have cooked dinner for us if required! He helped us to get around and with any questions and even organized an in-house massage for us.

The villa is in a quiet, little side street, but close to all the restaurants, bars, boutiques and the beach of Seminyak. Great location!

A magnificent oasis - I'm sure you'll love it as much as we did!

“Silence in paradise.”
Reviewed April 11, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Me and some friends were lost where to stay for Balinese new year until we found this amazing house. It's a large, self contained house and was perfect for our group who wanted to spend time together but still feel like we had space for ourselves.

The space is large, but the rooms and dining spaces still feel intimate and cozy and the entire house and courtyard is so private it almost feels like you're the only people on the planet. The tasteful and interesting decor left us always thinking we were discovering something new about the place.

I highly recommend a stay here, whether you want somewhere to unwind by the pool or somewhere to have friends for a beautiful dinner party. Best of all, the place was so close to the main tourist areas whilst still feeling like a isolated tropical getaway. Can't wait to stay here next time I'm in Bali
