Our stay at Villa Rene was for 11 nights. We were a family group with young children. Wayan, Putu and Made were just beautiful and the perfect hosts. There wasn't anything they couldn't do for us. The Villa itself was beautiful and well equipped for young families. We felt so safe and looked after. We will definitely be back
Villa Rene is such a beautiful villa to stay in. We were a couple of friends who completely fell in love with the villa. It was beyond what we expected and the stay couldn't been more comfortable. We were all very happy with the stay at Villa Rene and we would strongly recommend this villa to everyone. The pool was breathtaking and the little bed that was by the pool was the icing on the cake. We spent the majority of our time chilling on that very relaxing and calming bed and just really enjoying the view at Villa Rene. We really enjoyed the little constructed pond with the big fishes and the sea turtles as well. Inside the villa was just as beautiful as the outdoors of the villa. The bedrooms were perfect and the way the villa was able to open from the living room with a view to the pool was breathtaking. And I have no words for the suit on the top of the villa, just amazing. The only less amazing thing was the breakfast. We were 7 adults who did lots of activities so the breakfast was unfortunately not enough, but hey, the villa was everything so the breakfast didn't really bother us.The location of the villa was very preferable as well. Let me wrap this review up by also thanking the staff for being very helpful and very polite and also for making the stay so comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Rene, for sure!
Two families (total of 4 adults and 4 kids, ages 3-7) stayed at Villa Rene for 10 days and had a phenomenal time. We prearranged airport pickup, where Wayan (village manager) was waiting for us upon arrival and brought us back to the villa. We were hungry after such long flights, and Putu & Made kindly had made fresh juice and Indonesian noodles for when we arrived. The honesty fridge was great, as we were able to enjoy cold beers without having to venture out.
The property itself looks just like the photos. Beautiful villa, pool and neighbourhood, walking distance to the beach, restaurants and small shops. (**One note, the villa does not have a washer/dryer as we were expecting – but laundry could be done out of house, which Made arranged for us numerous times.) Most days were spent around the pool (kids could not get enough!), but there was also some kids toys and TV if they needed a cool-down break. In the evenings, we often walked down the beach to busier areas (short walk), but taxis were also plentiful if we wanted to venture farther, and Wayan was always happy to arrange one for us. Wayan also arranged a car to take all 8 of us on day trips around the island, which was awesome, as we were able to experience quite a bit of Bali (Safari Park, Ubud, Temples, etc).
The thing that really made our stay so enjoyable however were the staff at the villa - Wayan, Putu and Made. I cannot say enough good things about them. Not only are they genuinely kind people, they went out of their way to ensure we all enjoyed our vacation. From fresh juices, fresh coffee and breakfast every morning, to playing and babysitting the kids while the adults ventured out, to arranging in-house messages, cars, days trips, and to cooking some of the most delicious meals we enjoyed in Bali!! We can not thank them enough, as our vacation would have never been the same without them. Villa Rene is extremely fortunate to have such great people taking care of the property and guests!!
I'd highly recommend staying here. We were 2 families, 1 x 4 and 1 x 5.
Before we arrived we arranged pick up from the airport to the villa and that was through the owner. Couldn't have been any easier. Really it was so easy and not stupidly expensive either.
When we got to the villa we sorted out who had what room and then opened the fridge to grab a beer. Really handy to have an honesty box fridge.
The shops are a very short walk away, You can choose either the busy street side or the quite way round the back of the villas. When we were there the town was having new pavements put in so the quite way was the best. Really pretty gates and houses and the plants were amazing.
The beach is a small walk. Not a lot there but we walked left and headed to the busier part. We could have used the driver at the villa but opted not to so we got a bit of exercise. However, we used him a couple of times at night and babysitting too, which was so handy.
We had breakfast in the villa everyday. Such a thoughtful thing to arrange. All inclusive. Lovely!
We were a bit lazy and mainly hung out at the pool allll day, which was just lovely. It rained a couple of times - that's seasons for you! ut there were books and DVDs for the HUGE TV! And we added a couple of kids DVDs to the collection.
The restaurants and cafes on the main street are good. We went to Hogwild - ribs and beers. Watercress - kinda hippy groovy cafe with awesome breakfasts and Poulet de luxe - yummy bread and these tasty cake things. We got a taxi up to the fab supermarket to the right. Not sure what it's called but the quality of food was good.
We all had a wonderful holiday - and thanks for sending my clothes back - what a wally!
Thanks for everything!

We recently stayed at villa Rene and throughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were outstanding and made our stay in Bali very enjoyable. Our 3 year old son has celiac disease so we have to adhere to a strict gluten free diet. The team were more than happy to accomodate and prepared his meals and even sourced gluten free ingredients before we arrived to put my mind at ease. They were all very eager to assist with holding our 6 month old whilst we swam in the pool and they even put her to sleep on a couple of occasions . Which was great!
The pool fence, safety gates, high chairs, cot and baby monitor meant that we could relax and didn't have to pack all of these things to make our trip more comfortable. We will absolutely be returning to Villa Rene. Thanks for making our holiday so enjoyable.
Two young families stayed for 1 week in this villa, 9 of us in total with 2 very young children. Everything we needed was there for us, including car seats, high chairs, cots etc. The gates on the stairs and the pool safety gates all made the holiday easy. There was plenty of space for everyone, the daybed was the place to be though! Staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was such a treat to wake up to everyday. Some great restaurants within walking distance, even for the children. Didn't want to come home.
We stayed at Villa Rene for 10 nights. I really enjoyed our stay and I have nothing to complain about. It's located on a quiet street behind the very busy road, Batu Belig. The swimming pool is not large but we still had fun and relaxed at the pool. The villa itself is tidy and very comfortable. Staff are lovely and the service was fantastic. I loved the fresh juice they served with breakfast every morning. You can walk to the beach and to some nice restaurants towards Canggu and also on Batu Belig. Batu Belig is really busy around 6pm if you want to use a taxi to go to restaurants.
