I have recently stayed at Villa Josh as a friend of Simon and his lovely wife Anita, and tremendously enjoyed the place. It’s very spacious with a great layout. You can see the centrally located swimming pool and garden from all rooms in the house, including the bedrooms. After waking up, I walked straight from my bedroom into the swimming pool. What a life!
Simon and Anita have turned their villa into a true haven of modern tranquility amid a genuine Balinese village setting, inclusive of beautiful green rice paddies. A place where you can dine in the garden under a tree full of colorful flowers, yet enjoy music from a top-of-the-bill Bose surround sound system.
The house is adorned with large modern paintings and heavy hardwood, locally carved, dining tables – one inside, and one in the garden. It’s this mix of traditional local and modern western setting that characterizes the house as well as its owners.
During the time I stayed there, Simon and Anita proved to be great hosts. They ensured that I had a great time without infringing on my personal space. It was smooth and easy going, just like them.
All in all, staying at Villa Josh was a great, relaxing experience. It’s got my full endorsement!
