“Seminyak Best value villa Central to Beach, Exclusive Shopping & Dining”
Reviewed 14 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

person found this review helpful

I have stayed in many villas in the Seminyak / Legian area over the last 5 years and this villa is definitely the best value budget villa available. Putu the manager was waiting to pick us up from the airport with his immaculate vehicle with the coolest air-conditioning, a welcome relief from the humidity. He took care of us the entire holiday, taking us to Tanah Lot, Ulluwatu, Dream Beach, Ubud and also to the owners Sandy and Ron's beautiful villa in Canggu for sunset drinks. Thank you Sandy and Ron for your hospitality. You don't get such personalised service staying at a hotel and an opportunity to experience the real Bali. We stayed in villa 9B with a huge pool ( most villa pools are just plunge pools, you can do laps in this pool) and a large tropical private garden surrounded by high secure walls. The powder room with 3rd toilet off the open air lounge/kitchen was a welcome addition not found in many villas. The air-conditioning worked great and cooled the rooms down quickly. The outdoor bathrooms were lovely and private. We looked at 9A after guests had departed, it would be perfect to rent both villas for larger groups and still cheaper than most 3 or 4 bedroom villas in the area, giving more space and privacy if some guests wish to party in one pool while others want more peace for afternoon siestas. Putu's sister in law Komang serviced the villa every morning and his nephew cleaned the pool/garden daily. They both kept the villa and grounds immaculate and were so quiet and discrete, never intrusive. The beach, restaurants and shopping in Jl Seminyak all a 10 min walk away, also BlueBird Taxis are always parked at the end of the lane. For convenience and exceptional quality only 1 min walk from the villa in both directions are Lestari Restaurant fresh pasta dishes and Lasal Restaurant Spanish Tapas. Lasal's main courses Pork Belly, Slow cooked Lamb and Wagu Beef Stew all sublime. For sunset drinks Crystal Palace Beach Hut next to Lifeguard Hut between Jl 66 and Jl Dyhana Pura 5-7PM Happy Hour Great cocktails and service on the sand whilst kicking back on the beanbags or sit upstairs on the sunset viewing platform. For an unforgettable Wednesday night out go to Santa Fe Bar & Grill on Jl Dhyana Pura to see World Fusion Music Concert Saharadja Band, the most amazing vocals and musicians I have ever seen and only 5 min walk from the villa. Opposite Santa Fe is is a boutique called Shirley Lane owned by a lovely woman originally from Byron Bay with the most amazing Bohemian style custom clothing and leather goods I have ever seen. Leather boots and sandals custom made to your foot in no more than 2 days. Beautiful dresses, blouses, handbags, boots, sandals and belts, all one off designs. You can see and feel this leather will just get better with age. Oberoi restaurant district, Potato Beach Club and Cocoon Restaurant and Beach Club are all only a 5 min taxi or scooter ride away. Some mornings we cooked breakfast at the villa but we found this cafe just 5 mins walk away in Jl Drupadi called Kreol Kitchen that is owned by Anik a cool woman originally from Melbourne that has awesome fusion comfort food. My husband would buy her homemade sausage rolls and pies to reheat in the villas microwave. Also very handy to reheat home delivered takeaway from surrounding restaurants for a quiet night in by the pool. The wifi was always fast and reliable. Thank you to Putu and family and to Sandy and Ron. We have found paradise without the expensive price tag. We look forward to seeing you and staying at your villa in Nov/Dec 2013.

“Bare Bones Villa Clean Pool”
Reviewed 13 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This was my first trip to Bali and my recent stay at this villa was disappointing.
Luxury it is not!!!
Much that is advertised is not accurate, therefore misleading. I booked this villa based on the owner's word and the glowing reviews. I'm astounded that people write these remarks with a clear conscience.

The villa is located in a grubby undesirable area. The walk to the beach 15 minutes(advertised as 5 min) is a trying unsafe venture due to the narrow street with active scooter, taxi and construction vehicles, along with deep gutters, crumbling sidewalks with gaping holes in many places.
No working channels on TV (for DVD's only), No stereo, No water or water dispenser (only 2 bottles in the fridge on the day of arrival). We lugged water for several days before Putu (Driver/Manager) kindly brought us a 10gal jug on his scooter! Without a water dispenser it was laborious filling bottles from this heavy jug. The cutlery and housewares were a shoddy mismatch. I camp with better utensils.
Widi (housekeeper) did arrive the day before we checked out with new plates.
The bamboo furniture is most uncomfortable with worn flat pillows, making it unpleasant to sit and relax. The heat was exhausting as there was no movement of air or as advertised "Sea Breeze"

We had asked Sandy (owner) for a fan but her response was the villa was "bare bones" and she was tired of people breaking and stealing things. 4 days later Putu arrived with a stand up fan, we were most grateful.

No written information for guests is irresponsible, shameful and unbelievable. Especially for folks who have never visited Bali. We had no idea where the nearest grocery outlet or credible money changers or ATM's were located. Most importantly.......what to do in case of an emergency. The absence of a phone & security and a string of barbed wire along the "secure wall" is extremely unnerving! Thank goodness for my Lonely Planet Book and for Putu supplying a local cell phone several days later.

The staff are great!

The pool is lovely and clean and the gardener keeps the gardens in good order. However, having a snake on the villa veranda and lodged under my bedroom door we had no desire to spend any time in the very small garden area. We were very thankful for Putu being at the villa next door and able to come to our aid and caught the snake.

We should have checked out as did the couple from Villa B.

Brenda and Wanda stayed in treefrog , They came to my home and the only negative thing was they were sunburnt and were not handling the heat and humidty very well
as they came from minus degrees in Canada I can understand that, I bought a fan and sent it over to them. I do not understand why they did not mention their problems to me. I would have paid for and organised a few massages for them and a yummy breakfast is always good to start the day.
The problem seemed to be that they in fact did not like Bali so there for everthing was a negative response. They told me that they normally go to Mexico for holidays, so I think this was their first time in an Asian country, and that in its self can be very daunting for middle aged people.
Bali does have crumbly walk ways the infra structure is the same all over Bali Legian Kuta etc.They repair it on a daily basis, her comment about Seminyak is uncalled for as it has some of the best hotels in the street, Breezers spa and Resort and the Royal Seminyak hotel to name a few
I am not that concerned about the small picky things they said about the villa as that reflects the negative mood they were in. Thousands and thousands of visitors flock to Seminyak each year, but they understand the place and keep coming back. We gave them a mobile phone with money in it so they could contact us anytime with any requests or worries they may have had.That is why I am so surprised by this review. I did not hear a word from them until one month later with this review. Putu picked them up quiet often so the money changer and the water should not have been a problem and there is a 24hour convenience store on the corner of the lane 3 minute walk . The villa is equipped with maps,guide books etc.
I just think these women were out of their comfort Zone and Bali was not to their liking.I am sorry they did not enjoy the spirit and culture of Bali and the people .

I am somewhat taken aback at this response re my villa Up until the last 3 nights of Joes stay my staff reported that the guests were having a great time . Surfing, dining, having massages swimming etc
He contacted me as he said and did use a treat "If I did not refund the last 3 nights his only leverage was to review the property Poorly "as he has done.
Seminyak is a great holiday destination with a beautiful beach with great
cafes along the boardwalk and the best Restaurants in Bali so anyone reading this review should not be put off visiting the area as thousand of tourists come here regularly and keep returning . I asked Joe had he been in Kuta on his stay and he hadn't so I feel he has judged Seminyak a bit too harshly . I am sorry that he did not enjoy the area but know many others do, as far as the remark re the condition of my villa I certainly do not agree with this . i had it freshly painted through out the day before his arrival and my furniture is true Bali style bamboo with big thick cushions. My staff maintain the villa on a daily basis so it is always in good condition. The pool is always sparkling and garden very well kept.
