Herman was very helpful and friendly through our whole stay. The villa was huge and had everything we needed. The location was peaceful and quiet and felt safe but was still within walking distance to the beach and the tourist strip of Senggigi. Loved Lombok, none of the trash that seem to flock to Bali.

It's very large and great for families. Every bedroom has a bathroom and beds are very comfy. This is an honest review so here are the negatives.
Outside garden area although spacious was overgrown. The lawns needed mowing and weeding and in one corner resembled a building site. There was scaffolding and piles of concrete rubble and tiles. The scaffolding had undies hanging off it( not ours!) I found it to be a hazard with small kids as they wanted to climb it all the time. Also the upstairs part of the house is a building site, and very dangerous if you have kids as the stairs that lead up to it has no door so kids can just get up there. Up there are bags of concrete and piles of concrete rubble and it has no railing so I kid could easily fall. If they are going to have this then they really need a door to prevent children going in. This area cannot be used at all and perhaps when advertising house should mention its a building site/ work in progress.
We were aldo advised scooter hire was $5 per day and when we went to pay the house manager Herman he said it was 60,000, $6 per day. I felt a bit scammed by this. He also said we had to return motorbikes full of petrol which was fine, but one of them was under half full when we got it!! Also the maid room( can be used as extra bedroom) looked like someone had been living in it. Shampoo, conditioner, soap all out there as if we were sharing house with another guest. The outside area really lets this place down. Although it looks great in photos reality is it resembles building site. The deck chairs had bird poo all over them and
the little area in corner of yard was dirty and dusty. On a positive the house manager comes in every morning at 9 at cleans the inside of house, which was clean, although the cupboards in kitchen are very
dusty and dirty and need a good wipe out. This place made me feel like I constantly had to watch kids, and like I was sharing it with the housekeepers... Would I stay here again, probably not, was to much hard work keeping kids out of building site and just did not enjoy outdoor area... We went off to resorts to use pool
as was easier. Maybe if you don't have small children and you don't mind a work in progress this place would be great, but I would check first as it sounds like the work won't be finished anytime soon.
Lovely cool house,three nice air conditioned bedrooms, also maids room (not air conditioned) Large veranda; perfect for outdoor dining, an upstairs quiet area-good for reading, watching sunsets, pretty swimming pool and garden. A great venue for family or three couples.
