“Perfect for our family!”

Very impressed with this huge villa as so spacious and open but still very private. Great value for money in good location but without all the noise once we got home. Pool was bigger than we expected also which made great for a family of 6 including 3 children. We also checked out a couple of other villas close by but didn't compare to this one and most days we didn't want to leave. Staff also very helpful and nice thanks to Maria and her son "Hans", and ofcourse Adrian. We will be back!

“Good, but not a great match for our family”
Reviewed 28 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

This villa looked pretty close to the pictures posted. It was a tiny bit less sparkly than the photos, but overall a pretty good representation. This was not a great match for us for the following reasons: 1. 5 out of 6 of us found the living room/kitchen area that was open to be too hot to hang out in, meaning we were off in our rooms the majority of the time. Also 5 out of 6 of us found the a/c to not be cool enough at night so that even when on the highest setting (which said 17 but this meant the room was probably 24-25) was too hot. 2. the mosquitoes and flies were too much. We burned the incense coils, but like most of Bali-the mozzies and flies were just too numerous. We also stayed at 2 hotels before here --and there we had no problem. Anywhere open like this, though, we had the same problem. So not unique to villa marie claire -- but part of the outdoor villa experience I guess. 3. the housekeeper who was lovely and very helpful was just around more than we wished. She would arrive at 8 am (which we'd asked for 9 but I'm not sure that registered) and stayed for 4-5 hours. She was not obtrusive but we would just prefer the in-and-out in 15 minutes. And then the pool guy came for an hour. 4. the beach nearby is dirty and not very nice with a road right along it. Better would be to go to ku de ta or another beach club, where there is not the piles of trash, a pretty view all around rather than just the ocean side. 5. Lastly, there are some good restaurants nearby like Watercress and La Finca but this location is pretty far from most of Seminyak. Going as the crow flies, not so far, but streets don't cut through, so it was 10-20 minute cab ride (just US$ 2-3) in no traffic but 20-30 minutes to get to the W (pretty north already) during rush hour. Pluses were a great sense of style--I loved the recycled chairs, the mix of fabrics and the overall layout. Someone has a great sense here. I think this could be a good fit for the right people. I personally liked this place, but the rest of my family was definitely less positive.

Dear Jackie, First of all MVM Team would like to thank you for choosing our service and we are apologize for the inconvenience during your stay in Villa Marie Clare. We have fixed the air conditioner in the rooms and after we have 3 guests checked out, we haven't recieved any complains about this again. As for the insect and mosquitoes issues, we will think to make fogging, hence this problem can be solved for the future's customers. We are looking forward to welcome you again in the future.

“Relaxing chic haven”
Reviewed 14 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015
1
person found this review helpful

Loved this villa. Spacious and beautifully styled, it is a quiet haven only a five minute walk from the main drag. We enjoyed being in a more residential area than the hotels and villas of Seminyak, and this area has more of the feel of Bali 10 or 15 years ago. (negotiating the anjing guarding all the compounds was our only real stress!) There are some great restaurants nearby with excellent coffee and modern food, and also a couple of warungs with local fare at super cheap prices. And there are plenty of good spas nearby or you can get an in-house massage for a very reasonable price.
The nearby beach has a surf vibe, with the bean bag bar on the beach where you can have a beer and watch the sun set. It's all very relaxed.
The villa itself is very comfortable with quiet aircon in each of the three bedrooms. Beds are comfortable and are made up with luxurious linen. The living area is breezy with lots of seating round the TV/DVD player and speakers for your iPod. And the pool has sun on it for much of the day so doesn't get too cold. Internet was fast and reliable. We were well looked after by housekeeper Maria and her son. I recommend this villa for a great family vacation, and we would return in a heartbeat.

“The Place to Stay in Seminyak”
Reviewed 8 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

Having just returned from a quick long 4 day weekend at Villa Marie-Clare, what can I say - when can we go back! We were five mums away for a girls weekend away and everyone had the most amazing time.

Villa Marie Clare was just off Jalan Batu Belig and was a peaceful and tranquil sanctuary. With many shops and restaurants within walking distance and the heart of Seminyak only a 5 minute cab ride away - you want for nothing.

Mornings started with walks on the beach before returning to the villa for swim and beautiful breakfast prepared by the delightful Maria. Loved the eggs and bacon with an amazing homemade tomato relish. Maria is a gem who will shop and cook your requests and maintains the villa so you can just enjoy your time in Bali.

We were picked up by Wayan from the airport who is so friendly and accommodating. He came to the villa each night to take us out to dinner or drinks and offered suggestions on best places to go. He also helped us map our neighbourhood to ensure we knew how to get home each night. He was a highlight of the trip and we will miss him.

After hot days out shopping in the Bali heat, returning the the villa for a swim was the perfect way to recharge. Be it swimming, reading, lounging, watching movies, listening to music, getting an inhouse massage/treatment - you can do it all at the villa and best of all without the crowds of other resorts.

Now we are back we are already working on when we can return to Bali and when we do we wouldn't stay anywhere besides. Villa Marie Clare.

This was our second time at Villa Marie Claire, this time with young children. We had a very relaxing stay with kids and visiting friends. This villa is one of the more spacious compared to others I have seen. Beautiful sorrounds and with Maria there to take care of things, it was a breeze. Nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend staying in for breakfast, the pancakes are a must. She was great with the kids and they will miss her.
Plenty of places in walking distance to eat out but make sure you try La Laguna on the beach. Really incredible. Don't miss it. Adex our driver was also great to have as his local knowledge makes it easy to get around. New water park SPLASH has opened just a few minutes drive. A lot of fun for everyone. I would always go back to this villa, love it!

“Another Magical Marie Clare Stay”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

This was our second time to Bali and to the glorious surrounds of Villa Marie Clare.

Since our last visit the décor has been refreshed with very stylish artwork and furnishings used. The owners have very good taste!

We stayed for 10 days and settled right into Villa life with the wonderful Maria taking extra good care of us. Beautiful breakfast & perfectly clean and tidy surrounds.

We tried a few new things on this trip. Italy Café Pizzeria is just down the road and is a wonderfully authentic Italian restaurant. Bronz beauty salon for a glorious 2 hour body treatment and Canggu Club for a day of slides and fun (only 5 minutes by taxi rather than the hour or so to Waterbomb).

We also frequented the Canggu Deli Station for supplies. Including lovely cheese, dips and a good selection of wines. Again only 5 minutes by taxi.

Villa Marie Clare is so perfectly located, out of the hustle and bustle but still so close to everything.

We are a family of 3, 2 adults and a 6yo and we loved every minute of our time at Villa Marie Clare.

I can't recommend Villa Marie Clare highly enough - so much so, I'm booked to come back for a girls long weekend in March - Can't wait!
