Reviewed September 4, 2011

We came with friends to villa echo beach to escape city life...we truly didnt expect to have as much fun as we did. In fact, we extended our stay by 3 days (had planned to go to the hussle and bussle of Seminyak).

The villas are, new, modern, comfortable and spacious. The swimming pool is perfect for cooling down after being at the famous echo beach surf spot - only a few hundred metres away.

We ate in most nights. The chef cooked everything we chose to perfection. We just forgot about our real lives.

Special thanks to our wonderful driver, Gede, Ketut & Caroline for helping us extend our stay.

See you again!

We shopped around for a few weeks trying to find the best value villa in Canggu. Villa Echo Beach came up trumps. Their rates are fully inclusive of everything including driver, car, breakfasts cook plus more so no nasty surprises. Emails were all responded to promptly so organising transfers and our stay was easy. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and our driver Gede was fantastic. I recommend these villas to families and groups of friends. We have already booked our next trip to Bali and staying here again. We can't wait.

What a location, 150 meters to the beach. The Villa itself is good, not outstanding but we had a very pleasant stay.
There were just a few things that dampened the villas quality. The showers were terrible, lets face it, the water would dribble out at best, sometimes even completely stop.
The Villa also is very shaded, and gets virtually no sun.
The staircase is a danger, a few of us had a little trip on it.
But these are just little things, It is so reasonably priced and you get a driver every day for 8 hours, which makes things so convenient and you can go on day trips anywhere in Bali, as long as you can handle the busy traffic.
We had a great time here and would recommend it, particularly to those on a budget.

Thank you BossMont_Family for your review. I appreciate the comments about the value that we offer however i am disappointed that you experienced a few things that weren't up to standard.

I really don't understand the trouble that you had with your showers. We have never had water pressure issues ever before and didn't know that you were experiencing this during your stay. I know we sometimes have problems with the solar hot water panels and hot water can be intermittent when the villa has too many people wanting a hot shower within a short period of time. We are moving to 2 solar hot water panels in 2012 or going back to electric hot water systems. Having said this, I know this won't address the water pressure issue but as mentioned before we have never had this happen and didn't know you were experiencing this issue.

Regarding the villa and its shade - it is probably more due to the time of year that you stayed as June is one of the coolest months of the year. The sun does change in its positioning during the year so this is probably why you experienced the amount of shade that you did. It's hard to comment further as i don't know which villa you were allocated to dyring your stay.

Once again, thanks for reviewing us and giving us an opportunity to understand where we can improve.

I was a bit worried about booking a villa online but the owner Caroline made the whole process simple (responded to emails promptly, and then pay a deposit and balance on arrival). My family and were staying at another part of Bali prior to going to Canggu. Our transport arrangements fell through and Caroline arranged for a driver the pick us up at a moments notice, take us to the villa and stored our luggage till the villa was ready.

The staff had the villa ready for us by 12pm instead of the 2pm check in. The villa is a good size with all the mod cons (wifi, sat TV, DVD with choice of movies). 3 double rooms with air con in each room, indoor/outdoor living area and kitchen. The staff has been the highlight. Our driver, Made, spoke English and gave pointers on things to do and provided local knowledge. (Took my sons surfboard to a local repair shop and had a ding fixed in 24 hours and also took my wife to a doctor (foot infection) on a Sunday morning. He was called at 7am and knocked on the door 10 minutes later with no notice). The chef cooked a feast for a price a lot less than expected. Any thing that you need is arranged straight away.

The negative reviews about this villa seem to come from the Canggu area and not the villa. Do your research first. It’s a small village but still has restaurants on the beach that have great food at cheap prices. There are no major markets or shops like kuta/legian but there is enough here to provide for your needs. The hustle and bustle is only 30 minutes away by car(use the driver provided to go down for the day)or stay a few days in the hustle and bustle then come to Canggu and relax for a few days.

When I come back to Canggu I will stay here again

Dear thumper151,

What a lovely review. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and have been happy to share your experience.

Once again, thank you so much for your review. It is appreciated by all and i will make sure your sentiments to the staff are passed on.

Regards, Caroline

We have just returned home from a lovely 6 night stay at Villa Echo Beach, and wished we could have stayed longer. What a beautiful location and amazing villa. It was an absolute delight being part of the Echo Beach experience.
My husband enjoyed daily morning surfing whilst the children and I played around in the pool. Breakfasts were delicious with daily options to choose from.
Our Driver was also a delight and we maximised our 8 hrs driving really well! Being in Canguu some days it did take a good 50min to 1 hr to get to Kuta but we enjoyed the drive thanks to our drivers knowledge of the area and the view out of the window.
Villa staff were efficient and super friendly, we felt really welcome and safe which was a priority for us having 2 small children.
Many thanks to Caroline for helping us organise such a peaceful and fun holiday.
Kristy and Jesse,
Binningup WA.

We had a wonderful four nights in the 4br Villa before heading off to Nusa Lembongan and then returning for a further 4 nights (3nights in 4br and 1 night in 3br so got to experience several villas). We always stay in hotels in the craziness that is Kuta/Legian but husband and teenage daughter had me out-voted and wanted to stay somewhere more relaxed and in a Villa. Well I have to admit I was a little nervous but it will be Villas always from hereon. The wonderful staff were so friendly and helpful, special mention of our driver Gede who was just lovely and a delight to spend time with. Made our driver for last 2 days was also extremely helpful and friendly. The Villas were fantastic, everything you need is there and there was so much space to spread out and do your own thing. The beds were soooo comfortable. The villas are only a few minutes walk from the Echo Beach House for meals plus several other warungs and cafe's, had great meals also. Villa staff, (Ketut) also was happy to make dinner if you wanted to stay in. Great spot for hubby who just strolled down for a surf each morning. Having a driver and vehicle as part of the villa rental is a wonderful benefit for the days you want to shop or sightsee, Villas are close to a money exchange and mini mart, Security on site during the evening. Have to make mention of the free Wi Fi as this was important with a teenager. Thank you Caroline, we will definitely be back and were sad to say goodbye. Special thanks to all staff for making our stay such a relaxed memorable one.

Room Tip: Only few minutes walk to surf breaks, peaceful and secure
