Diana is a great host and greeted us in person and showed us her fantastic house. It has 2 double bedrooms and one huge master bedroom upstairs. The pool is great for a dip, it's 3x6 meters so a bit too small to swim in but looks amazing with the lights on at night. The outdoor area is great for entertaining. We had the maid make a Balinese dinner one night, great fun to see her cook it in front of us when we just relaxing with a bintang.
Location is dead center of Seminyak ,close to shops and restaurants. There's a supermarket 200 meters up the street.
The only negative I can say is the dirt road leading up to the house gets flooded when it rains and makes it hard to walk, especially if you have any kind of handicap.
The place is also a tad hard to find so I advise you take the driver Diana recommends. It's 200.000 rupiah and well worth the money.
The beach is a 15 min walk and there's a huge shopping center in the way if you like that type of activity.
In all a great experience and we have booked another stay in March.
Fabulous Villa in an Excellent Location very close to good restaurants and shops. What makes this Villa stand out from others that I have used, are the small details that Diana (the owner) has included in the price ..... provisions in fridge and kitchen ..down to individual mozzie spray in each room and more. Super clean pool two large lounge areas all open spacious clean and cleverly designed. Bedrooms are huge with loads of storage A/C and fans in all rooms. Will be back for sure.
Diana's villa is located in prime position. Close to amazing restaurants, cafes and beauty salons. From my first contact with the owner I instantly knew I had found an amazing place to stay. The villa was spacious, clean, had a homely character combining traditional Balinese styling with Australian/European influences. It is not a luxury hotel rather a loved home with a beautiful energy and aesthetic. Yes the laneway to get there needs to be done especially when it rains can be difficult to get out - your shoes can get dirty and muddy. Once inside you're in an oasis. Great privacy and ammenities. Yes some things need updating but overal for the price you pay, the location and service Diana and the maid provides is excellent. Not only will I return to stay here again, I also highly recommend guests to stay here.
I couldn't fault this villa even if I tried!!
It's absolutely beautiful, very clean and in a fantastic location. In fact the photos don't do it justice, we were nicely surprised when we arrived as the villa was even nicer than we thought.
The staff are extremely friendly and Diana has thought of everything, it felt as though we were staying at home.
I've stayed in villas in Seminyak numerous times and this villa would have to be my favourite.
Thanks for everything Diana x
We spent a couple of nights at Diana's villa and I have to say that it has been a wonderful experience. It started with a very courteous and helpful exchange of emails, followed by a very nice welcome in person at the villa. (Diana had also arranged an airport pick up at a reasonable price). The villa was very confortable, spacious, decorated with a refine taste and bright with lots of little corners for reading, sunbathing or enjoying good food around the dinner table with friends. Diana has thought of every little details that make a 5 star accommodation. The pool is not the biggest you ever seen but it was clean and big enough for the 5 of us to get a good break from the heat. Ibu Suci, Diana's pembantu, was lovely and very diligent. She shopped for us and cooked us breakfast. We also learned that she could watch after the kids if needed.
Located in the liveliest part of Seminyak, it is still quiet and close to the hottest bars in the area, the beach (15 min leisurely walk) and plenty of shops all around
My only regret... We could not stay longer as we had to go back to Jakarta. Enjoy your stay there folks !
Myself and my wife & two close friends stayed here.It was very good. Place was exactly as shown, no disappointments, the owner was extremely helpful thought of everything, even arranged airport pick up for a very small fee.The maid was just super and a great cook, she cooked for us for a small fee and that was just divine. pool was spotless and maintained whilst we were there. Flat screen internet TV's On the walls of the bedrooms, Cold conditioning in the bedrooms that was quiet and not like a truck. Villa is located off a lane way which was a little dirty, but not the fault of the owner. This place was like a little oasis in the middle of town, surrounded by high secure walls and lovely trees and well maintained spacious garden. Very private. We will stay there again.
WORD OF ADVISE DO NOT USE THE MONEY CHANGER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LANE HE IS A SNAKY RIP OFF MERCHANT. He is NOT related or affiliated with the Villa.

Great position in the heart of Seminyak. Private entrance down the end of the rustic lane. The lane way needs some work but it leads to the villa that seems like a hidden paradise. Well presented typical Bali villa with 2 bedrooms and 2 fabulous living areas. Lovely pool accessed by either living area. Suci the housemaid was very good and cooked breakfast and a couple of evening meals. She even offered to give our wives Balinese cooking lessons. Overall our holiday was made really enjoyable by the location and services that were provided. Would thoroughly recommend this villa to any of our friends
