“Great Villa & Great Staff”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

people found this review helpful

The best thing about Villa Rene is the wonderful team of Wayan, Putu and Madé who really looked after us. They adore kids and were more than happy to babysit and give us some adult time.

The villa itself is spotlessly clean and comfortable - it looks exactly like the photos although the garden furniture could do with being replaced. Location-wise the villa is in the Batu-Belig part of Seminyak and situated up a small quiet road. Although you can walk to some beach/shops from here, you'll find the best beaches and restaurants are 10mins or so away - but easily/cheaply reachable by car/taxi.

We had some issues with our final payment which we feel could have been handled better by the owners but it all worked out in the end - I would just advise you to pay into their UK or US accounts rather than by any other method!

Management Response
Apr 30, 2014
Thank you so much for finding the time to write a review. We really do appreciate it, and we read all reviews we get, and try very hard to make improvements where relevant.

Also our apologies for the payment problems on your second payment. It was our fault, as our bank managed to lose the payment and totally denied this despite us calling many many times to both our local branch and the head office in Jakarta.

In the end you had to put out a trace which proved that our bank had received it, and only after that did they transfer it to our account, 2 weeks late and more than $100 short. We of course covered the $100 shortfall, and gave you a bottle of wine at the villa for your troubles, but our apologies if we did not deal with the problem to your satisfaction. We did try our best, but banks are sometimes a law unto themselves.

This was the first time we tried to accept AUD, as you (and some other guests) prefer to pay this way, and this may have been the issue. As a result of what happened though we have taken a decision not to use this method again, and will stick with the tried and trusted payment methods of credit card, or bank transfers in GBP, IDR or USD.

Our apologies again for the problems, and I hope that it did not spoil your stay at Villa Rene too much.

Kind Regards
Tom

“fabulous Villa, wonderful staff - perfect for children”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I stayed at this Villa for a week with my three small children (aged 4 months, 3 and 4) and my sister and her two small children (aged 4 months and 2 ) with my mum and my sisters mother in law. The Villa is fantastic for children as it includes a pool fence, has toys and highchairs and is a house (as opposed to lots of separate buildings) so can be closed up to avoid mosquitoes and for extra safety. The staff are superb, more attentive than in any other Bali villa I have stayed at. We got them to cook a few dinners at a fantastic cost and thoroughly enjoyed the meals.

The only negative I have with this wonderful villa is that it is a good 15 min drive from Seminyaks premier shopping road but this also has the advantage of making it lovely and quiet.

Also presently the Canggu club is undergoing renovations so they didn't have any children's facilities....but once renovated (I think by mid 2014?) the children's facilities will be fantastic and well worth a look.

Definitely a Villa worth booking.

“An oasis of tranquility and harmony”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Villa René is exceptional for its serenity and beauty, the friendliness, reliability and openness of the host couple, and the charm of the house. It felt like a home away from home, lush and tranquil amidst the -- regrettably -- increasing noise and traffic of tourist Bali, informal and relaxed. A special bonus was the Canggu Club, where we could indulge our secret colonial fantasies and enjoy the pub, the pool, the spa, the gym and the excellent food. Two families with four teenagers, we warmly recommend Villa René to others. The price was just right.
