“We'll be back!!!!”
Reviewed 7 October 2012

My partner and I had a whistle stop stay in the guest house for two nights. We knew we had made the right choice from the first email by the owner, Peter. It was so easy from the booking, arranging the express valet, to settling in to our perfect getaway.
The guest room is so comfortable, has everything you require for a short stay. Lots of storage space if you are lucky enough to stay longer.
Peter is a very warm and engaging host who makes you feel so welcome and part of an extended family.. One of his may talents is surrounding himself by wonderful staff. The cooked breakfast is a perfect start to the day. Peter's wealth of knowledge for the area makes it easy to find the right restaurant / bar/ cafe /shops to enjoy yourself and surroundings.
We arranged a day trip to Ubud with the entertaining and delightful driver, Putu. A must if you have the time.
We had a late departure, to our surprise Peter gave us the use of a private villa to enable us to shower and relax after our big day out in Ubud and prior to leaving what is a very special place.
We will return, for a much longer stay.
Thank you Peter

We recently stayed at Umah Watu Tamantoya. The villa is in a fabulous location - close to eat street and other attractions (both if you are walking or catching a cab) but located down a quiet dead end lane, so once you are at your villa there is no outside noise to disturb you.
It was very relaxing & I wish we had stayed a few nights longer.
The staff are all lovely and unobtrusive and for us we only saw them in the morning for a quick clean up and good hearty breakfast (fruit, bread, cereal and a cooked meal of your choice - MORE than enough for the average person I would suggest)!
Peter & Mick are wonderful hosts and will make sure your visit is a pleasure and provide you with any information or help you require.
Highly recommended and we will definitley visit again......SOON!

The sad thing about this place is having to leave! My Husband, Heath and I stayed in the guesthouse for 2 fantastic nights, with a pool to ourselves, and we loved the outdoor bathroom looking out onto the rice paddies! Very comfortable bed, very quiet, and very safe! After getting in 2hrs late from Jakarta and travelling for 11 hrs, we were greeting by Putu, the driver, with a huge smile and very entertaining conversation all the way to Seminyak. We were then warmly greeted by Peter, the owner, with a cool drink. After Peter showed us our room which was very cosy, he left us to relax, and joined us the next morning for breakfast, which was cooked by his staff, anything you asked for, it was entertaining and so relaxing, what a way to start a holiday in bali! Easy walking distance, we walked to Legian, but a taxi is only very cheap also. Thank you Peter and your wonderful staff for making our trip so special, I missed you the minute we arrived in Kuta, and we can't wait to bring our teenagers back next year to your beautiful villas.

My Partner had the pleasure of 10 days staying at Tamantoya Villa during March 2012 to attend his son's wedding. When he arrived home in Australia he could not stop telling me what a great time he had had in Bali, and a fantastic stay at Tamantoya Villa. Over breakfast one Sunday morning we checked the Sunday paper travel section and that night booked a flight for two to Bali. My partner could not have expressed in words how wonderfull the owner Peter, staff and Tamantoya Villa's are, I am not sure I want everyone to know about our secret hidaway in Seminyak Bali.

Starting with Peter the owner and our host (expat Australian) and staff, Annie, Ketut & Anna cooking us wonderfull breakfast each morning, fresh juices and fruit followed by cooked breakfast of our choosing.

The well appointed kitchen was a delight to be in, after getting to know the staff I asked them if they would like me to make them an Australian cheese cake they had never had such a cake, after eating the fiirst one I made them another the day before I went home and they asked me to leave the recipe (I had such a good time with all the staff).

The Villa room & bathroom was clean and spotless and met our expectation, also the surrounding garden and pool maintained by Andreas was a pleasure to rest in and very private as it overlooks traditional rice fields.

The Villa's are just a short walk to beach, shops and great restaurants of many varieties (ask Peter for his recommendations). Numerous taxi's (with aircon and clean) for about Aud$ 1-2 will to take you to all local destinations.

Sightseeing with Putu, the Villa's driver is a "hute" he is highly recommended, his knowledge of the Island is vast, english is perfect, a delight to be with a true professional, he drove us to many places of interest, art galleries, restaurants, Balinese cultural dancing, temples and many more out of the way places which we would never have have on our own.

We are now looking forward to re visiting Tamantoya Villa in the near future

Stayed at Corra Villa for 4 nights, what a pleasure!! From transfer to check out ~ it was a breeze. Made (driver) and Anis (housekeeper) took very good care of us. Mick (the owner) arranged a VIP arrival for me with visa and immigration issues all being taken care of - excellent option. The villa is perfectly situated for both the beach and the shopping strip! Down a quiet alley, away from the hustle and bustle of the traffic, so really nice and quiet. Couldnt have asked for more - besides a longer stay.

I'll start by saying that im not sure i want everyone to know about the gem called Corra Villa in Seminyak. This position perfect Villa very close to KuDeTa is best kept a secret. We are very grateful to Mr Mick, Made and of course Anis who made our stay a delight. I didnt know Anis was going to make our breakfast everyday - what a surprise. Everything about our stay was EASY. I have been to Bali 7 times over the last 3.5 years and i do love the villa thing. Corra Villa is great for 2 couples and has both indoor and outdoor living and that great pool. The gardens are very beautiful. Thank you once again.

This is our 3rd stay at Taman Toya Villas but our first trip advisor report why, because we didn't want to share our place of paradise.

But I think it is time to let everyone know that this is the place to stay in Seminyak Bali.

Peter the owner makes organizing your trip a breeze from Valet Visa which whisks you through a busy airport to a smiling Putu who is ready to drive you to Taman Toya in an airconditioned vehicle.

Once you arrive and are welcomed to Taman Toya it takes your breath away to see such a beautiful Villa . The garden surrounds a crisp, clean pool which is just amazing.A beautifully decorated ground floor is beckoning you to sit and take in the ambience.

Upstairs is the main master bedroom and as soon as you open the door your reaction will be WOW or as the young ones would say "OMG".

Everyday you will discover something new whether it is a beautiful exotic orchard in the garden or a special corner for you to just sit and enjoy the whole Villa setting.

The staff always greet you with a smile and nothing is too much trouble for them and we couldn't
wait to see them every day.

Breakfast best meal of the day was prepared by Annie which was always amazing with Kutut and Anna assisting.

Restaurants, markets, day spas and the beach are only a stroll away and try Ultimo restaurant our favorite place to eat.

Our only regret with Taman Toya is leaving but we will be back again and again.

When you stay at Taman Toya you feel like you are staying with friends.

Thanks to Peter and staff for looking after us.

Mike and Chris
