Just stayed here for 1 week with two families with young kids. The locaton is convenient and there is lovely staff on the premises who are ready to help if and when needed. The owners are also very helpful (offered all the kid friendly specs and arranged for a transportation solution). The kids loved it. It was ideal for our group.
We had 9 adults and 2 kids stay here for 5 nights and it was a great space for it. Close to plenty of top rated eateries for breakfast lunch and dinner. Bit further from the beach but plenty of blue bird taxis went up and down the road so they were easy to catch. Sita and Putu kept the place very clean and were very handy to call on for any cooking/babysitting we needed. We had a lovely meal prepared by them on the last night which was one of the better indonesian style meals we had on the trip. Air con worked well in all of the bedrooms and the villa was well decked out with a big projecter and hundreds of DVDs to choose from. With the kids we were able to get highchairs, cots and pool fences set up at no extra cost which was a big bonus. Only thing I would state in terms of cons would be that the pool was over chlorinated and so we all had a few issues with stinging eyes (although there are bats in the area so it may have required extra chlorine in the water). If you're after a well located villa for a larger group with plenty to do in and around the accommodation then I would definitely recommend
Lovely spacious house which slept 11 comfortably. Great having a dishwasher, good size fridge/freezer and fully equipped kitchen. Good sized bedrooms and bathrooms and loads of living space. Pool and garden also good, but pool a bit on the cool side. Upstairs bathroom needs improved water pressure for loo and shower to work better and a new shower head. House at the end of a drive away from the busy road and looked out across rice fields on to a quieter road. We walked for 30/45 mins each morning and were spoilt for choice for good quality cafes. Even found a 100% vegan cafe. Friendly helpful staff on hand if needed. Owner very helpful and responded to emails promptly. Would stay here again.
We stay in March with 5 friends in the Villa Kippling.
it was a great stay and a pleasure to be there.
The villa is beautifully appointed and in the lovely area of Canggu and
one of the rare house with a nice view over the rice fields.
The Villa is Located off on the main street in Canggu but not noisy.
Sita is cooking very nice Balinesian cuisine.
We had a wonderful stay for 9 Nights and we will come back soon.
Great value for money villa - we stayed here with 4 families and there was plenty of room - huge bedrooms and wonderful pool and gardens. Nice quiet location however a little difficult to find if you don't know what you are looking for.... Would highly recommend this villa
Villa Kipling was exactly as described in previous reviews and is what you see in the photos. Located off a main street in Canggu, down a long driveway so it is set back from the road, it immediately has a feeling of tranquility due to its location adjacent to a rice field. The villa is spacious and was perfect for the 3 families we had staying here (13 in total: 6 adults, 7 children aged 18 months to 5 years). A fence had been organised for around the pool, and to be honest it looked like it was a permanent fixture as it just blended in. Five of the bedrooms are inside the villa, with the 6th being a separate building close by to the villa. The villa is immaculately clean and maintained by Sita and Mas Pur. Whilst not modern by Western standards, it is a modern Balinese villa and has everything you will need (the bedrooms are huge). Outside there is a large dining table to accommodate a big group, casual seating and lounges around the pool. Sita and Mas Pur were fantastic - anything we requested was met promptly and they were always close by to assist with questions. Sita was also available to babysit, which was handy with little ones who still had day sleeps. Getting around was easy - taxis frequently come past if you just wait on the road. If you don't get a Blue Bird, ensure you negotiate a price prior to getting in otherwise you will be ripped off (a Blue Bird costs around 50,000 to Seminyak). The location of the villa was great - positioned in amongst a strip of shops that includes cafes, mini marts and some boutiques, you can easily get the things you need. Only 900m to Canggu Club and 4 adult entries were included with the villa, so that saves a lot off entry (a really great place to take kids). Also not far away is the newly relocated Finn's Beach Club - this place is awesome. Easily accessible is Seminyak - around 10-15 mins drive (traffic dependent). The villa is nustled amongst balinese housing, so the rooster noises, traditional singing and call for prayer from a nearby mosque take a few days to adjust to, but by the end of our week there we didn't even hear these in the mornings. Cafe Macan at the front of the villa is excellent - a beautiful cafe with a great menu. Baptiste, the villa owner, was always quick to respond to questions prior to our stay. We had a wonderful time here and would highly recommend it to a group of families wanting a villa in peaceful Canggu.

Booking and dealing with Baptiest was easy. He was very responsive and helpful. On arrival we had 3 cars for our group of 13. Sitas American breakfast was awesome but her Indonesia dinner was better. The villa is as pictured. Very homily and we'll appointed. Heaps of room for all of us. the pool tiles have been re done in wood and the pill is beautifully kept. The lawns and villa are well maintained by sites and mas Pur, kept clean for us daily. Many restaurants near by. The butcher, macan, wrung BBQ ninjunta, Satu Satu Cafe, great bakery farens. The best money exchange right across the road and even Fresh dairy products. Taxis will be needed to access beaches. We walked one day out is far and got taxis home as it is hot. Price was higher than we would normally pay hence the only reason for very good. Would recommend this villa, very spacious and home away from home. Thanks.
