“Great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

What a great villa. Very convenient to all the restaurants within Seminyak. Just got back from 9 nights there with my husband and parents and it was great. The team lead by Arke were amazing and so helpful. The service was perfect and no request was a problem. Thanks to the whole team for making our tay special. The villas were very nice and clean. The only issue was the air con could have been cooler but I think that is mainly due to where they are located in the room. The breakfasts are good. Fairly basic but fresh and on time every day. We will be back to stay in this santuary again in 2014.

Room Tip: We stayed in villa 3 which was the last one away from the main street.

This is my second time staying at Villa Jodie and I absolutely loved it as much as the first time. Even though it is right in the middle of the noise of Seminyak, once you enter your villa, it is like entering your own piece of paradise. I could have stayed there the whole time. There were five of us women, with a three bedroom villa. The staff are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble; they totally spoiled us. The villas are spotless and the breakfasts are great. The pool is divine, beds comfortable, right down to linen being changed daily. I would not hesitate in recommending Villa Jodie.

Room Tip: Ask for Villa at back, but depends whether you want two or three bedroom villa

Stayed here again for the 3rd time. Absolutely fantastic.
Villas are sensational, we have stayed in a different villa each time and all have been great. You can walk off the street from the hustle & bustle of Seminyak, and be surrounded by serene and peaceful surroundings of your villa.
The staff are fantastic, mostly the same people over the years. Very help full and nothing is a problem.
Arki is a fantastic manager of the property always smiling and very help full. BJ is great also, smiling and happy to clients.

Modern and tastefully styled villas with wonderful, accommodating staff. Why would you not stay here? We travelled to Bali with good friends (two couples) and were very happy with our choice or a two bed villa at Villa Jodie. Each villa is in its own enclosed garden off a central planted walkway. Beautiful manicured lawn in a frangipani laced tropical garden is set off by your private pool. Ours in the two bed villa was more than adequate in size for the four of us, but the 3 bed villas do have much larger pools. The open sided living pavilion has separate lounge and dining areas as well as a fully equipped kitchen. But why cook? Villa Jodie is slap bang in the middle of Jalan Laksamana (also aptly called Jalan Eat Street) where countless eateries offer the world's cuisine at ridiculously cheap prices. The Villa bedrooms are simple, elegant and clean. The bedroom "wing" is separate to the living area and bedrooms look out over the pool. They have walk in robes behind the bed area with ample hanging and storage. The robe area leads out to the ensuite bathroom which has a double basin, bath. separate shower, toilet and bidet. The ensuites are open air but under the roof line (apart from the shower which is truly open air). I love the open air bathroom with the feel of tropical air on your skin, but for those who are squeamish about open air toilets there is an enclosed toilet off the living area. I've noted a number of people talk about the noise in the front villa. Our villa was only half way down the walkway (villa 5) and we rarely heard noise from the street when sitting in the lounge and even out on the street most noise is gone by midnight. The bedrooms also have both glass doors and wooden, sliding privacy screens which we used to keep out the morning light. With the privacy screens closed we couldn't even hear our friends by the pool immediately outside.
I've travelled to Bali numerous times and love the Seminyak area for its food (both cheap and more expensive restaurants) range of shops (for the odd retail therapy) and general vibe (not crazy like Kuta but still with a holiday feel). Jodie is perfect for all this. Restaurants and shops literally on the doorstep. A two minute walk to Kuni's (my favourite Japanese restaurant in the world!) and ten minutes to walk to Ku De Ta. Other favourites such as Potato Head Beach Club and Sarong Restaurant are only a $2 and five minute taxi ride away. Much of the time staff would drive us when we were heading out- an added bonus.
The staff at Villa Jodie are a delight. Friendly and helpful with good English language skills.
There are newspaper clippings in the foyer that explain that the Villas were set up by an Australian doctor and his wife following the Bali bombings to provide work for locals. The couple had planned to go to the Sari Club with a traveller named Jodie who they had met at their hotel but they pulled out at the last minute because they were tired. That decision saved their life, meant the doctor was able to assist in the aftermath of the bomb at the local hospital and enabled them to give back to this beautiful island by naming the villas after one of the victims. They have recaptured some of the beauty and tranquility of this place in their villas.

We have been to Bali many many times and have just stayed at Villa Jodie on a friends recommendation. We stayed in the Two bedroom with Family. From my first email contact with Arke I found him to be exceptionally friendly and very professional. The Villa was very clean and the bed very comfortable. All amenities were of a high standard, which is unusual in some Villas. All of the staff at Villa Jodie were very friendly, polite and couldn't do enough to help us, especially PJ, Ketut and Stephano. All of the staff speak English - some very well. The location was right in the main area of Seminyak which is perfect for walking to restaurants and the beach is a 5 - 10 min walk down the road.

Breakfast was served in our Villa and was good. We enjoyed being able to enjoy our own company and take our time! You could order hot or continental, including Indonesian, but it would be nice to be able to have a little more choice with the cereal as corn flakes was the only option.

Working in the hospitality industry myself I would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Jodie to future travellers.

We moved into Villa Jodi after moving out of a villa down the road that we were unhappy with. From the moment we walked into reception we were greeted by friendly staff who were more than happy to meet our needs. We wanted a 3 bedroom villa as we had 5 adults, the only villa that was available was the villa facing the street & it was a little noisy due to the road works that are going on & the traffic. We were offered 2 x 2 bedroom villas away from the street at a discounted price, with no noise... We chose the 3 bedroom on the street and have no regrets! Yes, we had noise but we are in Bali after all. Our villa was very large and spacious, the pool was so refreshing after walking around the streets all day.
The boys had been talking about having Babi Guling all holiday so they asked the chef if they could have a whole suckling pig served in our villa! The chef was more than happy to organise it!
I would recommend this villa to stay in, I know we will stay here again!

My husband and 2 adult daughters have just spent 7 days at Villa Jodie in a 3 bdrm villa
(upgraded from a 2 bdrm) The property is well located right in the centre of
shops and restaurants. This was a great plus for us, some people will find it noisy at night, I must say that slept like a baby. The villa was spacious with outdoor kitchen and dining area.The rooms were clean and minimalist. Lots of hanging space,outdoor bathroom which I found a bit challenging at this time of year as it was so humid. I became very efficient at getting ready !
Great pool which we used a lot. The daily breakfast was promptly served in the villa, simple but fine. We appreciated the water dispenser in the kitchen.
The staff were the best asset of Villa Jodie. Always polite and helpful. Airport transfers are included, amazingly they drove us anywhere we wanted to go during our stay,we would make our own way home- this service was exceptional.We were also able to have a late check out which we really appreciated.
This villa was a perfect choice for our family and extremely good value.
Thanks again Villa Jodie
