I spent in Villa 1880 an unforgettable time!
Couldn’t ask for a better place!
The Villa is an unique accommodation, very classy and private, with a fantastic big clean Pool and a huge peaceful outdoor lounge – with cozy design sofas and armchairs - where you can relax during the day or at night.
The Bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable – there’s a special one for the kids - as well as the masterclass Bathrooms.
You can relax in the beautiful Reading Area, with books regarding Asia, or indulge yourself with a Spa treatment in the private Spa.
The staff was absolutely wonderful, kind, and helpful, ready to satisfy our needs and requests. Adi, the house chef, always served tasty breakfasts and delicious meals, offering several options (even vegetarian).
Villa 1880 is perfect for families, couples and groups of friends. I would highly recommend this villa for those who are looking out for a lifetime experience: a charming spacious villa, well located in a quite street, just a 5 min walk from lively downtown Seminyak and the main shopping street.
I was in Bali for a wedding, and stayed at Villa 1880 for one week with my family. After looking at the beautiful photos online, we were surprised and delighted when everything was better and more beautiful in person.
The house manager personally came out to the airport to collect us and was more than helpful driving us back to the house and carrying our luggage. Upon walking around the house, we were amazed by the incredible and spacious design and quality of the furniture. A shallow ledge at the edge of the pool makes for a perfect area for young kids.
When we made it to our room everything was again even better and more amazing than we had expected. The bathroom was gorgeous, the beds extremely comfortable and the wardrobe and room spacious. The main living area came with speakers to listen to music with and inflatable toys for the kids in the beautiful pool - where we barely left for the duration of our one night stay.
When it came to designing this home Marcus and Irene have thought of everything from the amazing layout of the various rooms and the classic modern design ensuring a spacious yet intimate setting to the small details of perfectly placed bath care products. Although almost every room is fitted with a flat screen tv with just about every channel, movie, and music selection you could want, it was still a bit difficult to use as they had just installed the system - although I understand this has been fixed.
The beach is a short walk away, enabling us to spend evening walks watching the beautiful Bali sunset. The location, despite being just a few minutes from downtown Seminyak, is on a quiet street one block from the beach. This enabled us to have a quiet and relaxing sta yet hop into town for dinners, lunches and bars while avoiding the traffic. We loved going to Potato Head to watch the sunset and come back home for a private dinner with the house chef.
The food, cooked by Adi, is something we still regularly talk about - each meal was delicious, whether it be Balinese food (which I would highly recommend) or western cuisine.
Marcus and Irene came to visit us and spent time with us to understand how they could improve things to make our stay more enjoyable. They have clearly spent a huge amount of time to make this a wonderful place in the heart of Bali.
If you find yourself travelling to Bali this is THE place to stay!
Thanks again for everything Marcus and Irene, and I can't wait to visit again this year.
The villa was more than what we could imagine. Staff was always ready to help and super attentive to all our needs. Very family-friendly environment but chic and classy at the same time. Location was also perfect as it's a walk to the beach and a walk to some of the best shopping in the island.
