This is a great family-friendly villa, where the most favourite spot for the kids was of course the pool that was cleaned every day. Villa itself is just near the beach and just a short walking distance away from restaurants and grocery store. And with very reasonably priced taxi drive away from Sanur centre with even more multiple choices. Karine is great and friendly host with wonderful suggestions where to go and see, also she has lots of contacts where to call if anything needed, i.e restaurants home delivery, drivers, currency exchanger, spa etc. Really made our life much more easier. On the top of that there was a mobile phone we could use to make all these calls that was again a very helpful small detail.
And the villa staff was above wonderful! So caring and what a delicious dinners Mira cooked for us! And the villa was kept clean every second we were there.
Definately would be a recommendation for our friends who go to Sanur for a vacation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 night stay at the villa. We were a group of 7 friends and family who met in Bali from all over the world. The Villa provided a fantastic indoor/outdoor communal space to spend time, with many nooks and spacious bedrooms to escape the group too. The pool is enormous and stays cool all through the day. The indoor / outdoor showers make you feel like you are on holiday. The beds and comfortable and the air-conditioners are welcome reprieve for sleeping. The villa is of a very high standard, overall.
The villa is only a five minute walk from the beach and 10 minutes to great bars and cafes with live music at night. There is even a little warung right next door, who serve decent food and rent bicycles and scooters too. Everything at the villa is just so easy! It makes for a very relaxed stay. Northern Sanur is only a $1 taxi ride away if you want a little more action. Mertesari beach really does have all that you need though.
The house staff are friendly but professional, accommodating and cook a great breakfast to start the day. What really made our stay was the attentiveness of our host Karine. Nothing was too much! She even facilitated a last minute request by one of our group to organise food and decoration for a marriage proposal. What she and her staff managed at such short notice, was amazing! A very memorable stay indeed. Thank you Karine and family for having us! We really do hope to come back sometime.
We stayed 10 nights in total and loved the villa, located in the quieter end of Mertasari and not as much choice for restaurants close by. But if you don't have small children, the walk isn't that far to get to all the many places to eat or the beach...
The actual villa was brilliant, comfy beds, friendly staff, amazing breakfasts. The owner arranged a pool fence for us, no charge and return airport transfers as well as organizing a driver for us a couple of times (thanks heaps Karine, so hepful).
We would definitely recommend the villa, great size pool, nice and clean, thanks La Maison xxx
Just stayed here for the month of May with my husband,daughter, son, daughter in- law and grandson.
I would have to say I was a bit apprehensive at first. not sure if we would be staying in a villa that was as perfect as it looked in the pictures.
Well all the sleepless nights from worry stopped as soon as we arrived at this villa.
Karine the owner met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome at her villa.
It is absolutely beautiful, Loved the open living area spent most of our time here and in the pool. There was always a beautiful breeze blowing through the living area. Our day would start by having our breakfast prepared and served by the lovely house keepers. [Fruit, eggs, toast, pancakes, tea and coffee] Then it would be time to lounge in and by the pool until about 3pm each day before venturing out for a late lunch and a bit of shopping. The villa is situated in a lovely quite area of Sanur not far from the beach. We enjoyed our regular daily walks up along the beachfront. It would take about 25 minutes walking along the beachfront to reach one of our favorite restaurants to go for something to eat or 10 minutes up the road to one of our favorite Warungs. Plenty of transport available just up outside the villa near the Mecure Resort for those that don't like to walk or just a bit further along you can catch a bemo or taxi . We were there to do absolutely nothing but relax , eat and walk and I can say that is what we done.
Our Housekeeper Mira was a godsend, she was a little whirlwind going about her daily chores and then helping us with what ever we needed. She would occupy and play with the baby, hang our washing out for us, take it off and fold it when it was dry as well as getting all her own daily duties done, One day I asked her if they had a iron as I needed to iron 1 dress next thing I know it was on my bed already ironed Rooms were always spotless , fresh bath towels and pool towels were always there when needed.
Karine was very helpful during our stay sending a text message or email every now and then making sure we where okay and asking if we needed anything.
The only downside to our stay in Villa La Maison was when we had to leave , we all wanted to stay longer as we loved our time here.
Very impressed with the villa, it's clean, private and away from the noise. Has an authentic feel and away from all tourist strips. Outdoor shower is heaven and plenty of space to retreat out of the hot sun. The staff can not do enough for you. Take my advice and pay a bit extra to have the breakfast cooked daily for you.
