Reviewed April 12, 2014

i stayed at #5 for aprox a month. My 2 main goals while staying at #5 was 1.telecommuting for work via internet & 2.surfing and i am coming from a standpoint of somebody whos lived in and been travelling to bali for years so i will only highlight in my relevant key points that will make me want to be a returning guest!:::
Spatial layout of this compound is very smart esp. for #5. Patio outside made room space feel even bigger and ofcourse facing the pool especially when nobody is there will make you feel like you've booked an entire compound. However if you do see other guests, they are always well mannered like minded well heeled travellers, some stayed longer, some checked out after several days so you will see non of those intrusive noisy dirty messy people.
WIFI (& power supply) was very constant (for a 3rd world country), when the one and only day it was down, concierge organized to have it fixed promptly even thought it was already past office hours and i could resume work later that night and worked successfully throughout my entire stay.
Concierge is a team of smart ladies who are very well spoken, with great customer relations and inside connections, they are a class act and vital in the daily runnings of the compound.
Housekeeping was daily, prompt and discreet and every day the room was extremely clean. complimentary camphor soap was a very nice touch! everything that needed replacing or replenishing was done without reminding or even asking.
Dark curtains in this room is a major plus with jet lag especially when i had to work. the curtains draw back to reveal ceiling high glass sliding doors for the patio,garden,pool view. Linens were fresh, bed & pillows were comfortable, fresh, clean and good.
Fridge is a regular sized one and with freezer too, which was also one key factor for me staying here.

likely i will be back in Bali again and this place currently takes the spot for where i would stay again!

Stepping off the rather long flight from London into this lovely apartment was such a treat. Ilaria kindly organised a driver to pick us up from the airport which made everything very smooth.

The apartment was clean and lovely, great decor and the pool was a treat from the heat of the day. House keeping staff kept the place spick and span throughout our stay and the reception were super helpful even offering to lend us a phone when we were having a bit of difficulty with a local sim card. They'll also help you rent some scooters from the shop next door who is lovely and arrange a driver whenever we needed one.

All in all if you're looking for a nice quiet place away from the craziness of Kuta (luckily we never went there) and even Seminyak (but having them within an easy taxi ride) this is perfect. It's an short scooter ride to echo beach, or you can borrow the apartment free bikes - even surf boards. I'd recommend venturing further up their road too to and pop out the end to some great paddy fields.

Enjoy your stay!

Its a very quiet and green surrounding. The place is clean and very helpful staff. Too bad sometimes the smell coming from the toilet gets really annoying. But Its a very compact and a pleasant place to stay. We wish we could stay longer.

We stayed in one of the small villas down at the riverside for one month. After staying in various apartments and villas around bali I have to say this is one of the best price-standard options.
Service is first class,, always spotless clean and very helpfull staff.
Owner is always close by and is a very good host.
I was worried that the location would be a little bit of, we normaly stay in Umalas wich is more central.
But I realy changed my mind after this month.. Ecobeach is the place to stay if your not looking for night life.
Great restaurants nearby, walking distance to Ecobeach (atleast in the evening when no so hot)
and just a couple of minutes to batubolong, for beginner surfers.

I stayed in one of the "studio" rooms with a friend and had a great experience. The location was ideal for us since we wanted somewhere quiet yet close to the beach. If you can rent a ride a motorbike it's perfect to get to Echo Beach and Old Man's beach (about 5-10mins). The service was excellent and Tati and her staff were great with helping me extend my visa. The decor and layout of the room and building were great.

My husband and I stayed in the Red Apartment for 4 days in February.
The distance to the beach is absolutely not 200 meters but about 1,5 km. Still quite near to the beach where you can dine really good at Echo Beach Restaurant.
The pictures on internet don't really give a good impression of the reality.
The apartment is a little bit obsolete,the bathroom not clean.
The wooden treshold around the swimmingpool broke at several places if you stepped on it!
But in relation to the price it is a reasonable offer.

I stayed in Apartment Red for two days, and it was a great vacation I never forget. The apartment complex surrounded with rice fields, so I got a quiet country side atmosphere with clean fresh air.
Is just abut 200 meters to go to the beach and many restaurants around ( I suggest you to try Roti Canai Cafe for breakfast ), and there's nothing to worry about because there's bicycle free to used. Or if you don't want to get sweat there's motorcycle and even car rental just in front of the hotel. If you're not so sure about the rental's tariff you can ask Tati, the hotel staff, for some information. In my experience it just abut USD.24 per day to rent a car ( toyota 6 seaters small MPV ).
The Apartment itself was well equipped with complete kitchenette which you can cook anytime, and there's a small store to buy some eggs,etc right on front of your doorstep. If there's anything you need for, you can ask Tati or Juan Pablo the owner itself, they're not locals but have been in Bali for years so they can recommend many things for the best.

Room Tip: If you want to have an open air dining room, choose Apartment Green or Blue
