“Fantabulous”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My partner and I were extremely happy with our Villa. Our Staff Budii was very friendly and made us feel welcome. He helped arrange day trips instantly as we couldn't make up our minds at times. So happy about that. Our personal belongings were secure at the Villa and overall, the Villa was perfect and exactly what we booked and payed for. Steve(owner) was very friendly as well. We recommend Santai Villa to anyone that likes short walks to the Beach and shops. Quite area too and just perfect for anything really. Thank you Budii for looking after us xxx

Thank you for your review of Santai Villa and we are pleased to hear Budi looked after you all very well during your stay and you enjoyed the surprise cake we arranged:)

I am pleased to let you know just today I have ordered 4 new sun lounges so we have a total of 6 one for each guest! We also have a new lounge and some other items that have just gone into the villa as we are always adding new items and renovating.

I got the staff to check the hot water today and all seems to be working well however I will have the technician check things just to make sure both hot water systems are working as they should :)

We hope to see you and your family again in the future!

“We loved it!”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed for 4 days in early Sept 2014 with 2 young children. It was their first time overseas and it was a brilliant introduction to Bali and its surroundings. The villa was great, good location, comfy beds and price was perfect.
The staff and Steve were AMAZING! Faultless really. From the great communication before we arrived to the greetings when we arrived. They really made our trip fun and easy.
It was only the 4 of us but we could imagine coming back with friends again. Already planning our trip back - we had such a wonderful and relaxing time.
Thank you so much!!!

“Hoping to be fair ................”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

OK, I think the key to making trip advisor work is being balanced and fair in your review of a place or venue, with that in mind I will try to be so .............

Firstly lets talk about the villa location .........

I dont know Bali well but had been told Seminyak was a good place to be and the beach was good etc so we looked in that area for a villa. We were not disappointed with the location, although it is more in Legian than it is in Seminyak and is a little bit out of the hub and "high end" area people talk about ....... That said the villa is tucked down a side road away from traffic and is for the most part is quiet, but it is only a few minutes (2 or 3 minutes with the kids in tow) ....... to the beach. The beach was nice with lots of bars and places to eat and we did not have to go very far in any direction from the villa to get everything we needed for our holiday.

The villa itself .................

The villa is pretty average in terms of quality of environment. It is a little bit tired, the furniture is basic and probably passed its best .... the bedding was clean but not attractive .... Please bare in mind that I accept that fixtures, fittings and furnishings etc are a matter of taste and subjective but honestly speaking, as a villa owner myself in Thailand and knowing a little about how to make the best of a property, I feel like Steve (the owner), is missing a chance to really do something great with this place. The structure, layout and space itself has huge potential but the overall quality of the property is average at best. The bathrooms especially need a re fit....... it honestly wouldn't take much (we spent lots of time debating the things that could be done with amazing materials etc to transform the house)..... The floors etc were very dirty, mainly caused by both the open plan style of the house but not helped by not being cleaned (certainly during our stay)...... Little things like having sleeping space for 6 easily (certainly 4) but only having 2 sun loungers (mainly due to lack of garden space I imagine), could be easily fixed.....
Service .......
Steve was great before we arrived and was very helpful with any questions we had. Budi who worked at the house was also full of friendly advice and was a lovely lovely guy ..... you certainly forgave more than normal knowing that Budi was probably doing the best to help us with what he had .........

So, in summary ...... an average villa, in a good spot at probably a fair price, managed by a nice owner and staff who perhaps just need to invest in the property and take a longer term perspective on how you yield a return on the investment rather than trying to spend nothing and recover as much as possible as fast as possible.

Was I disappointed when I arrived ? Yes
Did I get over it pretty quickly ? Yes
Would I go back again ? Oddly .... probably yes, especially if the decor, fittings and furniture etc was sorted out and I would pay a little more to do so too.

I know Steve reads his reviews and I hope he takes this one in the spirit its intended. I would encourage people to stay here but do so knowing what you will get :
Basic, functional, well located accommodation. If it was a hotel it would be 2 to 3 star and is probably priced fairly per night, especially if you have 4 or more people staying and are sharing the cost..........

“Couldn't be more relaxing”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My family and I stayed in the Santai Villa for 8 nights and loved every moment.we were met by Wayan at the airport who was extremely friendly. At the villa We were greated by Budi and Dex who were amazing. Budi showed us around and showed me the phone to use if we needed anything. Budi made sure we did not want for anything and if I needed his help he was always available. The accomodation was perfect for my family and I. During our stay I celebrated my 30th birthday and was so suprised that Steve the owner had organised a cake for me which just made my day that extra special. The Villa was amazing and was spacious enough for 5 people. I highly recommend Santai Villa to everyone. Thank you Steve, Budi and Dex we will be back !
