My best friend and I stayed here in January 2018 for 4 nights.
The villa was just gorgeous with the pool being the high light..... runner up was Eny who is the housekeeper.
The location isn’t the best if you want to wander around as it’s a bit out of the main shopping and restaurant district and the roads are pretty narrow with no footpaths. Although if you were a couple who wanted seclusion or a bigger group it wouldn’t be as obvious being a bit further away from the action.
The villa it’s self was great. I agree the towels are a bit old and probably need some updating but apart from that everything it lovely. Huge king size beds with starched white linen in each bedroom with aircon and outdoor bathrooms (1 had a bath). No Tv’s in the bedrooms.
The main living area has a couple of couches, tv and is open to the views and the pool. The pool is awesome. We spent most of our time in it.
Eny the lady who looks after the house is beautiful! She cleans the rooms and living areas every morning and we arranged for her to cook us breakfast everyday. It was delicious and she is a great asset to the villa.
I’d recommend this villa for people happy to just enjoy the Balinese weather.
A lovely find in the middle of Seminyak with 3 lovely sized double rooms. Very quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the main town, but only a 10 min drive to Seminyak Square. Mini-Marts are 5-10 min walk from the villa.
Rooms are well presented and the photos depict the villa accurately. Besides grocery items, you could want for nothing else in this villa, everything has been provided for, including a mobile phone which is handy for calling local numbers i.e. restaurant, takeaway places.
Eny, the lady that greets you upon arrival and the one that looks after the property is on hand throughout the day and is super friendly and helpful. She makes sure that the villa is clean, tidy and running as it should be e.g. she called a handyman to fix a door for us without us knowing whilst we were out one day, and informed us that the AC in our room wasn't working and had that resolved within the day too. She is also the chef, so if you want breakfast, lunch or dinner it is simple enough to request, and all you pay for is the ingredients. Eny is also very good with children. We travelled with our 8 month old son and she was very much hands on in terms of helping out with feeding and or playing with him.
There are probably only 2 minor set backs which is why I have not marked this villa 5 stars. Towels provided could be of better quality as they are quite old and dated, but I suppose better than not having any towels at all. Bearing in mind you have different towels for the bathroom and the pool area.
The only other downside is when it rains heavily. Admittedly we went during the rainy season, but did not expect it to affect our stay in the villa. There is a slight design fault, not just with it being open plan / outdoor, but when it rains, the floor gets quite soaked, with at least 2mm of sitting water on certain parts of the living room floor. Not great when you are carrying an 8 month baby (for fear of slipping) or if you have a child who is crawling. We couldn't leave him on the floor for this reason.
I also cannot comment on the room that is not attached the main villa as we never used this room. Again, also conscious as to when it rains as you have to travel with an umbrella between this room and the main villa.
