“Perfect for our family holiday in Bali!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Our family of 5 stayed for 10 days in late July after a long time away in Bali and found Casa de Maria to be wonderfully perfect and great value.

Chi Chi was super responsive for the booking, she checked in on us daily, helped with our car hire (and driver who was great), helped with day trip suggestions and even turned up with treats for the kids one day.

Villa facilities were ideal (and good for 6), clean, modern (not high spec but all good functioning equipment), basic but nicely designed bathrooms (bali spa open style) and a clean pool. We had varied daily breakfasts cooked (sometimes on request) which always included a fresh fruit platter and strong local coffee, cooked by the lovely housekeeper/chef Nyoman.

The best thing about Casa de Maria was Location Location Location. The description says 5 minutes from the beach, and it is exactly that. It is also 3 minutes walk to the shops/boutiques/restaurants/spas of Seminyak and all the best restaurants in Bali (or in Seminyak at least) were a stones throw away from the villa. The villa gave us privacy (barely heard the neighbours for 10 day duration) and we felt secure.

Difficult to think of the worst thing about the villa, maybe the pack of dogs that prowled the alley in the early evening, intimidating to the kids but quite harmless really. The pool wasn't heated and could sometimes be chilly (although the kids didn't feel it). Oh and the villa artwork could do with a slight upgrade.

Would definitely recommend.

We have just returned from a 10 night stay at Casa de Maria and cannot rate it highly enough. We were a little wary prior to booking as there weren't many guest reviews, and weren't sure the villa could look as good in real life compared to the photos.
From our initial contact with Chichi (and there were many emails from us!) to meeting her and spending time with her during our stay, we have never been so warmly welcomed and accommodated. Chichi went out of her way to source anything we asked and nothing was ever a problem.
The villa and its garden and pool area are simply stunning - the pool is huge! There are 2 large king size bedrooms with comfy beds, pillows and beautiful linen, with 2 enormous semi-outdoor en-suites. The separate bungalow has a queen sized bed with a smaller but still generously sized en-suite.
The sun lounges, round day bed and sofas are also super comfy and roomy.
The villa is serviced to meticulous standards each day, with Nyoman also providing excellent baby sitting for our 3 year old. Breakfast is provided daily and the menu was up to us (eggs, pancakes, croissants etc) and always with a huge delicious and varied fruit plate each day.
The villa is a short stroll to many shops, restaurants and beauty salons for massages etc, as well as a 5 min walk to the beach with plenty of sunbeds during the day or beach bags for cocktails and dinner at night while watching the sunset.
The villa is set in a quiet laneway surrounded by rice paddies. We hired a stroller for our 3 year old and some of the laneway paving was damaged proving a challenge sometimes (especially at night!), but there was a portable light provided at the villa.
Beware of mosquitoes (which you would find on every tropical island) and use the repellent also provided by the villa. There are also mosquito coils and plug-ins in the bedrooms.
The kitchen is fully equipped, with instant boiling water for tea and coffee.
We have now found our 'home' in Bali and will definitely be back!
