Our flight was slightly delayed due to a volcano eruption, but the smiling face of Jana was at the airport to greet us and swiftly transport us to this lovely villa, arriving late at night. First impressions we were somewhat unsure, as we pulled up to a little carpark infront of the villa where first thing you see is a storage/laundry room, which was overflowing with empty bottles, bags of rubbish and boxes! but once inside the gate, our fears were allayed. The villa itself is minimalist, clean and comfortable, with a sofa you cannot get up from! Canggu is a nice quiet area, just north of Seminyak, where we just wanted to relax for a few days and totally unwind and acclimatise.. and this was was the perfect place! With only the 2 of us, the villa was more than ample, with a spacious living area, and big pool. The staff were most attentive at our requests and it was lovely to have the cook prepare meals,(average) and Jana, the driver, to take us where we wished, (altho' our expectations were that we had the driver for 8 hours per day for free, as stated in our booking... but we were asked to contribute petrol money??? Maybe this was due to the extremely cheap price we obtained the villa at last minute. Not that we minded..but not expected...) Breakfasts were on time & plentiful, with the nicest mixed fruit drinks! Massages and manicures ordered inhouse, were indulgent. The king sized bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in...waking to the mooing of the cows in the field next to the villa. Overall, a relaxing experience. I would highly recommend this place, especially with the pool fencing, if you had small children.
