We have just had 7 nights at Villa Castilla. It has been our first time in a villa with 5 adults and 2 young children (5yrs and 2yrs). It has been a wonderful experience from our pick up at the airport til our very last day. Roy, Uli and Gusti have been amazing staff and nothing was too much for them. They were amazing with our girls, always smiling and always helpful. It was so nice to have the pool to jump in whenever we felt like it, without having to struggle for a spot like big hotels.
The villa was spotless, the food amazing and the service second to none.
This villa is in a prime location and within steps of "Eat Street" but you cannot hear traffic. Location, location, location.
Do yourself a favour and book this amazing villa.
Awesome staff, Roy, Uyi & Gusti are the best. We had an awesome time. 5 adults & 2 children with plenty of space for all. Right in the hub of the shopping & restaurant strip. Nirvana & Ginger Moon were excellent eateries. Our house staff were the best in the business, we wanted for nothing and they were always so polite and friendly. Would highly recommend this villa and staff.
Such a lovely stay at villa Castilla, the staff were amazing, food was delicious and they could not have been more accommodating. It has 4 main bedrooms but possible to sleep in downstairs lounge area too. Clean place with a/c, very homely. Doesn't get much sun by the pool garden area but was hot enough for us.
The pool and outdoor areas are lovely, the villa is spacious and right in the heart of Seminyak but very quiet. The staff are absolutely fab - smiley and friendly, cooked lovely breakfasts and were unobtrusively helpful. It is quirkily castle like but we liked that. My only wee gripe is the upstairs main bathroom which needs a bit of a makeover - the shower had a wooden slatted floor that needs a redo. This is just a small thing though and we really enjoyed our stay here.
This is our second stay at Villa Castilla, and the third stay at one of Susan's villas. The villa staff are just wonderful. Annie is sweet and helpful and not only kept the villa clean and tidy but is also a great cook. When she was on her days off we had Roy who was also lovely and made us a wonderful breakfast. Our driver was Gede, polite and funny drove us through Bali's relentless traffic. Very laid back and relaxed.
Villa Castilla is in a fantastic location in Seminyak. A short walk down the drive way and you are in the middle of all the fabulous restaurants, nightlife and shops. The Villa has a pool but we only swam a few times mainly because it doesn't get a lot of sun and was quite cold. I would highly recommend Susan's villas to anyone visiting Bali.

Loved it, perfect location, amazing villa with big rooms and a sweet pool. The maids were there all day to cook, to clean or help in anyway. Even had a security guard sitting out the front of our villa every night. Can't go wrong with this place.
The Villa location is fabulous just alongside the main road of Seminyak. You do not need to walk into any small alley which might be very dark at night. The location is just next to many eateries, massage parlours, supermarkets and shops.
The rooms are clean and spacious although not as well kept as hotels. But the space is good for big families or big groups of 6-10 to be able to stay together. The driver and housekeeper took care of us very well and they have a night security as well. The pool is very deep even for adults and they do not have a baby pool section so this is something to take note of if you have small children but they do have built in pool fencing.
However, my engineering husband noticed that the locks are not safety friendly as you need to lock inside and outside of the main door and the rooms with a key. In the event of emergency or fire, it would be better to be able to open the door automatically from inside the room or house with those push button or knob lock. Just a safety feature the management can improve.
