I work and live in Bali and for Christmas my family were coming to visit. Since I live out of the main town where everything is on your doorstep - we decided to stay at Villa Anakula so that we were close to everything and everyone could come and go as they pleased.
The location is superb!!!!!! A few hundred meters walk down the small road and you are on the main drag of Jalan Legian - You have everything at your fingertips, from Bintang Supermarket, Double Six Beach and many great restaurants. Plus if you need a taxi any where you just stick out your hand and you will come across one within seconds.
We rented 2 villas where we could then open the big wooden gate and combine the two villas. It was perfect being able to do that.
Everything about that place was great - where there was an aqua gallon and dispenser so you didn't have to bother with many bottles of water - you just topped up the one bottle.
The bedrooms were great - I really liked the layout of them so much that I have taken photos and aim to have the bedrooms in my house I am building reflect the layout of Anakula Villas.
The bathrooms were extremely spacious and for people who have previously complained about the smell of the water - it is not due to the tanks etc. It is the sulfur from the underground water - so just let it run for a few mins and then it will be gone.
I find that previous people who have reviewed this villa are way too picky and expect 5 star service for a cheap price. These people have to realize that Bali si not cheap any more and I was so thankful to have found Villa Anakula - because we would have been paying double the price in other villas that are in the same area.
What you are really paying for in other villas are the staff cooking you breakfast, big luxurious fluffy towels, people tending to your every need etc.
Villa Anakula doesn't come with breakfast and the towels are just normal towels like I have at home and for me that is totally fine - as I am not paying the extra for these things.
I preferred it where the staff there would leave us alone and they would come in once a day and clean the rooms and kitchen and then leave us alone. But if we every did want anything, all we had to do was go out the front and ask. My dad needed a tailor and one of the girls was very kind that she got dad to jump on her bike and she took him somewhere down the road. We also needed to hire a car and driver for the day - so the security guy there that night organized that in a few mins.
The staff were more than willing to help us at any time of day if we asked.
The only thing I would mention is that if there was a family considering this villa, I would be aware of the closeness of the pool to the living room. Any type of tiles in Bali here will be slippery if they get wet. With kids jumping in and out of the pool and then dripping over the tiles in the living room - you are going to have accidents and people slipping over. You can tell kids 100 times to not run and stop dripping / splashing water - but we all know that they are never going to be careful. So just be aware of that issue if you have kids.
