Villa has all the essentials anyone needs in Bali. Caretaker, Ayu, and driver, Gedeh, are fantastic professionals who welcomed us with warmth throughout our stay. With a laundromat and a minimart right beside, it is conveniently located. It is a little further away from the beach, but that spares you from the heavy traffic. Notwithstanding, there are great eating haunts just around the corner, so food should not be an issue. Because of the open nature of the villa on the second floor, it does get slightly dusty floors, but that shouldn’t detract from the faxt that it’s still a great place to stay at.
We stayed at Villa Kahlua for 2 weeks and it was the most unbelievable holiday in the most gorgeous villa. Ayu and Gede who are the staff at the villa are nothing short of wonderful! Gede picked us up and kept the gardens beautiful and will bend over backwards to help you out with anything. Ayu is an absolute gem who is always happy and smiling and is the best cook in Bali. She was there every day without fail and we have now made a friend in both of them. Thank you both. The villa itself is huge with comfy beds and spotlessly clean (thanks to Ayu and Gede) The pool is spotless and always in the sunshine so the perfect temperature. This villa we will be back at as it has a shop and laundry next door, a coffee shop up the road and a great massage place 100 meters away. You need nothing else but to relax by the pool and enjoy. Thanks Noel, you made booking this villa very easy and please thank Ayu and Gede for being so lovely to wake up to every day. Love from Louise, Rich, Fiona and Sassa xx
We had the most amazing time staying at Villa Kahlua and would highly recommend.
The property is amazing and in great location with only short distances to everywhere. Ayuk, the cleaner/babysitter is amazing and Gede the driver is very knowledgeable about Bali and knows all the best spots and has very good English making everything very easy.
We will definitely be back!
This property is very well kept, spacious and the pool and gardens are also lovely and clean.
We had a great stay, kids loved the large pool.
Ayux the cook and cleaner did a great job, we had some amazing meals and enjoyed coming home to a clean home. Gede the driver was also fantastic, very safe driver, with lots of knowledge of where to go.
We will be back to Bali next year and Villa Kahlua will be our first choice.

The place is convenient! 2 bedrooms with king bed downstairs and 1 large twin beds upstairs. All with individual bathrooms. The house is kept clean! It was complete with everything you will need. The only thing you need to bring are toiletries. They have towels and all beddings!
My only concern which I relayed to Noel was the bathrooms were a bit worn out. So even if they were spotless clean, it felt a bit uncomfortable to use because of stains on the floor and lavatory. Other than that, everything was ok!
Service wise - it was excellent to talk to Noel , Gedi ( driver & tourguide ), and house helpers! They were all very helpful and accomodating in everyway! And they arranged for a car for our group. This is with a very minimal cost of $30/ day for a van that fits 6 comfortably. The helpers cooked breakfast for us every morning which was a big plus! Ghedi drove us anywhere we wanted anytime. He woukd even join us for evening outings! Very nice & helpful fellow!
Location wise, you will need a car to get to main street with lots of restaurants. Around 30 mins walk. But it is near everything by car! Good location if with a car! Quiet neighborhood yet near the center!
We absolutely fell in love will Villa Kahlua and Ana and Gede! What a place! We were a group of 6 friends who were looking for a relaxing and fun holiday. Villa Kahlua delivered this exactly.
The pool is massive, much bigger than we were expecting. The villa was modern and clean. All communication with Noel the owner was pleasant and very prompt. We had a funny incident with the roof in one of the bedrooms during out stay and it was dealt with very quickly thanks to Noel and the driver Gede.
That brings me to the best part of our holiday - Gede our driver and Ana our housekeeper. These two are the best! Make sure you get Ana to cook Nasi Goreng for you! And her spring rolls are amazing. Gede is hilarious and was very helpful in showing us places to go etc. he made us laugh our whole trip!
We loved our stay at Villa Kahlua!
Came with children and mom. The Villa looks exactly like the photos... actually even better. We've been to Bali a few times over the years and have finally found the place we want to come back to. The kids enjoyed the wide space and big pool while my mother enjoyed the ultra comfortable beds. Service is excellent with nothing too much of a bother for Ana and Kede. Oh yes, there is an AC in the living room and the indoor space can be fully enclosed which was a pleasant surprise as we did not see this on the photos. Thank you all for a great stay and Noel for making everything perfect.
