Staying here for 5 days as part of a 2 week Bali holiday. Nice villa with 2 large air conditioned bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. Fab private pool which is great for cooling off in the heat. Good location in quiet private street with easy access both to the main street and through the neighbouring hotel to the beach. Friendly, responsive owner/manager who provided excellent dinner recommendations. Perfect for our family of 4. Would also suit 2 couples.
The villa is everything described above and so much more! You can stop reading now and just book it!!
If you want to know more, here it is! There is excellent communication with the owner Chris, who emails in the run up to your arrival to make arrangements for everything, from how you want the beds configured (twins, kings etc) to what time your plane lands. We were met at the airport by Ari and taken to the villa (airport transfers included for stays over 4 days) where we were met by the manager, Tina, who showed us round, and explained how everything worked. The villa is really well equipped, they even include a mobile for local calls and umbrellas if you happen to be there in rainier times. They provided fresh fruit, bread, jams, tea, coffee etc to get you started. There is a water dispenser which means there is always ice cold drinking water available. Towels and pool towels are included. Everything is beautifully clean,and the cleaners (very friendly) came daily to keep it that way. The pool was lovely and refreshing, but if you have young children it would be impossible to allow them outside unsupervised. We did have a couple of things that went wrong, but the response was really fast and things were sorted.
The location is perfect, in a small side road, away from the noise of the Main Street, but only a 2 minute walk to get there! As you hit the main road, head in either direction for a wealth of bars, warungs and pricier restaurants covering just about any cuisine you can think of! If you get fed up of staying round the pool, head to the beach, a 5 min or less walk away. There is an arrangement with cafe neylan that means you can use their loungers. There are also places to hire paddle boards, jet skis wind surfers etc. We liked the beach as it was interesting watching the world go by, and there was always a breeze to offset the heat of the day. There is a footpath that runs the length of the beach with lots of bars, restaurants, hotels and stalls if you fancy a walk.
If you fancy a trip, we twice hired our airport driver, Ari - who is also a very talented artist- for the day for 70,000Rp, much cheaper than booking a trip for 4 people. He will take you wherever you want, or make suggestions if you aren't sure.
All in all, we had an amazing holiday, and if we come back to Bali, there is only one place I'd book! (Ok, I might look at their other properties too, just out of interest). We loved the freedom and space of our own villa, having done hotels up to now. This was certainly a much better (and cheaper) option than booking 2 hotel rooms!
As I said at the start, what are you waiting for? Just book it!
So close to the restaurants and shops of Sanur and lots of options down on the beach which is nearby. The owner Chris and Manager Tina were incredibly helpful and very good communicators, along with the drivers also that were organised.
The Villa is very clean and modern, we really enjoyed our stay here..
We spent 10 days at this villa very central to every thing and well maintained and private we had some issues with air conditioning and toilets but everything was sorted out very quickly. Thank you for the lovely meal cooked at the villa. We would recommend this property to friends and family.
This was our 4th visit to Sanur and we were looking for more self sufficient accommodation than previous hotel stays. We felt at home as soon as we arrived with simple details like nice coffee, bread and fruit for our first morning. Our driver was very friendly, as were the cleaning staff, who kept the villa very clean with daily visits. The simple modern Balinese decor was perfect and very comfortable. The bathrooms were large and all plumbing worked OK. The highlight of our stay was the private pool which got a good workout each day. We will definitely be returning to Villa Jepun.
My husband, daughter and I stayed at Villa Jepun for a week. The villa is lovely with a pool immediately outside the bedrooms. We had difficulties with the air conditioning in the dining/ living space, but the true sign of a concerned host is how attentive they are when a problem presents. Tina and Chris get a top grade in this area. They were responsive and stayed with it until it was fixed. They were gracious, concerned hosts. The area is perfect with beach a short walk and restaurants and shops just up the block. I strongly recommend staying at beautiful Villa Jepun and hope one day to return.
