For our second trip to Bali we decided to try a villa instead of a hotel, which turned out to be a great move. Bob was very helpful through email correspondence before our trip, answering any questions we fired at him.

The villa was clean and comfortable and in an excellent location, within walking distance of lots of great eating and drinking locations. We particularly enjoyed Potato Head, La Luciola and the Gourmet Cafe (excellent for breakfast).

Connie and Made met us at the airport as promised and were very friendly and welcoming. En route they took us via the Bintang supermarket for some provisions and the currency exchange, which saved us time later.

Both bedrooms were comfortable, although in bedroom one there wasn’t a ceiling fan and the air-con tended to be a little noisy intermittently; but nothing a pair of ear plugs wouldn't solve! Ear plugs would also have muffled the vociferous neighbourhood cockerel who didn’t seem to have a set time to make his presence known, although any time after dark seemed a favourite!

The bathroom off bedroom 2 was large and the big bath looked lovely, although we didn't use it as the bathroom was very warm and we had mosquitos due to there not being a door to the small outside storage space off it and the recent rain. The bathroom in bedroom 2 was a little snug and would have benefited from shelves for toiletries.

The kitchen was well equipped, although we only used the fridge/freezer, kettle and toaster, but it seemed to have everything needed if you wanted to cook something. Finding a cafetiere in the cupboard was a bonus for fresh coffee.

Overall a great stay in Bob’s Bali house and we will definitely be rebooking in the future.

Recommendations:
Pack a bright torch as the lighting is very limited in the surrounding streets. Torch light makes your walk back from a night out a lot less stressful and helps avoid falling down holes or in deep puddles.
Don’t forget your mosquito repellent spray to keep the little blighters at bay.
An umbrella comes in handy and ours did get used, but there were 2 extra in the villa if we needed them.
Finally, don’t forget your hand sanitizer!

Arrival Pick Up
The pick up by Connie and Made was great and as expected. It was particularly helpful that they took us to the Bintang Supermarket to get some basic supplies - Bintang and coffee. They also took us to a trustworthy moneychanger. The airport transfer is a real bonus and makes the arrival so easy. One recommendation - if we had known in advance that Made and Connie had a tour business I would have booked something with them in advance.

The Property
The property is lovely and clean. We had a third person join us for 4 nights and the staff were able to provide an inflatable bed that was perfectly acceptable according to our friend.

Some Minor Suggestions for Improvements
I mentioned to Bob that the toilet in the main bedroom needs some repairs. It simply does not 'work' e.g. flush, when you compare to toilet in the 2nd room. The 2nd bathroom needs a vanity or medicine chest for personal items. Hooks for hanging towels for both bathrooms would be nice.The cupboards and drawers could use a bit of a clean out / re-organisation but that is just from a woman's point of view. The air con and fans worked fine. It was great that there were items like mossie spray/coils, incense, fly spray, candles, and even leftover toiletries from other guests such as sunblock and some food items/condiments. Certainly not Bob's responsibility but it would be great to know that in advance so you know what you need or do not need to bring. These are just small things that make a big difference.

Location
The location is great to access the excellent restaurants that Bob and Jan recommended. It was a bonus that we could walk down quiet and traffic free Gang Telaga Waja to reach Bodyworks Spa and to reach the beach area, thus avoiding the busy Jalan Petitenget road.

Beach, Spas, Restaurants
We did not spend much time at the beach - compared to the beaches in Australia it just does not rate. Instead the spas and local massage and beauty treatment shops were our focus as were the restaurants. Loved ENY Organic Warung (awesome shredded chicken with lemongrass) and Kolega (under $3 for a great lunch.) For NYE we chose to buy some lovely food and wine from the Bali Catering Company including prawn and mushroom ravioli, pumpkin ravioli, and lasagne. Chilean, Spanish, and Aussie wine topped it off, much better than spending a heap of $$$ on a set menu in a busy restaurant, in our view anyhow. Oh we found a new place too that we liked, Vignando Winebar, brand new, run by a Sardinian woman. Offers free Italian tapas with drinks. I'll include pic with address, but it is close to Bodyworks Spa. We also tried AMO Spa, within walking distance and next time would try Sentosa Spa for a splurge. Dinner at Sasa' ristorante on eat street which was good.

The think I least enjoyed was the never-ending firecrackers. It occurred every night. I am not sure if it was because of the holiday season or some manner to scare off birds????? It was over the top on NYE but hey, that is certainly not Bob's responsibility and would have happened anywhere.

Activity Recommendation
Halo Bike Tour through the countryside was AMAZING. Long trip from Seminyak but well worth it.

Bottomline is I WOULD return and recommend the villa to friends and family. Not sure about kids though. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

“Perfect for our first few days in Bali”
Reviewed 14 August 2011 for a stay in June 2011

The villa is in a great location but we only discovered how good when we explored the area. It would be great if there was a local map in the villa as it would have saved us a lot of walking! There are plenty of great places to eat nearby and the beach is a long walk away if you don't get good directions. The people next door are ready to help you whenever you need it which is pretty comforting. Would definately recommend staying here.
