I stayed with large group of friends for 4 nights in June 2017. I have to say, we had a fun stay and all went really well. Staff and villa were amazing and good location for us. Craig was super friendly and very responsive to our needs. I’ve seen some previous reviews and I’m very surprised by a couple of negative comments, I’m very surprised as it wasn’t our experience at all. I can thoroughly recommend this villa and booking with Craig. We’d be more than happy to book with Craig again.
The Villa is setback from the beach enough to give you total privacy. Villa Kaira is an understated grand villa and the photos do not do it justice, the decor and finishes are slightly dated but it feels like home and does not feel like a generic holiday villa. It is cosy yet spacious enough that all the guests can find their own quiet space. The staff are excellent and discrete, yet very friendly.
The best asset with the villa is the pool, its is partially shaded all day, just floating in the pool overlooking the activities on the beach is mesmerising. Walking straight on to the beach for sunrise and sunset is a godsend ( and we live at the beach in Sydney). There is no touting on the beach! This stretch of the best has the best looking beach shacks, still local fishing boats are not far away with beautifully painted wall art. Walking into the villa transforms you into another world, coming and going along the boardwalk over the koi pond is heavenly.
Everything is there, though some of the equipment is not working properly, but it does seem the management do try to keep on top of it all. It is exposed to the salty ocean breeze, so wear and tear will always be an issue.
I celebrated my birthday with different groups of friends, and everyone was sad to say goodbye and think that is a good testament for the villa.
Don't miss the Sunday afternoon on the beach when all the local Balinese come to enjoy the beach and sunset, it is great to see the true Balinese culture come to life.
Thank you to the staff of Villa Kaira. I hope the area does not developed anymore.
PS. Finn's Beach Club is nearby they shut at 12 midnight, noise was only a slight issue for the 11 days we were there. Good coffee shop nearby as well.
This villa is amazing! Great location, you're literally on the beach! 5 min walk on the beach to Finns Beach Club. Friendly staff, always there to help no matter what time of day. You get your own chef who cooks you breakfast! I must say it was so good! Highly recommend this villa. Booking this villa was smooth, the owner is very responsive and makes the whole process much easier. You will not be disappointed.
The perfect Villa if your over with friends or want to host a party. The villa is right on the beach with amazing ocean views and a large pool to enjoy them from. The bedrooms are all spacious and comfortable and there is a TV room, gym and large kitchen. The villa staff were fantastic, always willing to help with cooking and made sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. They even barbecued for us and made a delicious breakfast in the morning. I couldn't recommend this villa any higher for someone looking for a spectacular place to stay in Bali. Thanks for a great weekend.
Picture perfect villa - beach front with magical Balinese sunsets. The villa is spacious, well furnished, ideal for groups of friends or families as it allows for some privacy when needed. Service is efficient, discrete and the staff will go the extra mile (prepare customized breakfast, rent motorbikes, etc.) A highly recommended villa if you want a peaceful oasis yet close to all the best restaurants, bars and shops. Thank you to all for a wonderful stay.
I am unsure that I could adequately express the gratitude I have for Craig & his incredible team of people who work in the villas.
It was my 50th birthday & I had people flying in from all over the world to attend. From the very beginning Craig was 'on the ball' with his response & service, it was the reason I decided to stay in his villas.
However when we arrived at the villas, which are truly incredible in view, hospitality offered & location, I was overwhelmed. The villas are immaculate, the staff are incredibly kind & generous with their time & willingness to assist & the meals that were cooked amazing.
The location is perfect. You have an infinity pool that looks over the ocean, a short walk you are @ the newest beach club, which is amazing & within walking distance are some great little cafes that serve brilliant breakfasts, Japanese etc. The drive into Seminyak is no more than 20 minutes & there is always someone at the complex willing to take you there.
I would highly recommend these villas as would all those that stayed. I will return with friends as it now holds a very special place in my memories.

Villa Kaira was perfect for our group including a toddler and 5 year old. Beachfront, away from the carnage of Seminyak and Kuta with plenty of Cafe's etc around, including 'Finns Beach Club' (Amazing!) a 3min walk down the beach. Rooms were well presented, roomy, outdoor bathrooms, huge bed, great pool etc. Wayan (In house Chef) and his team produced great breakfasts and dinners on request! We were hoping for an Ash cloud on our final day... didn't happen.
