Dhini and Jeff manage this villa. Dhini is a sweet. lovely woman. She has many properties she manages, but she is able to provide well at this villa by having the equally lovely staff.
Dhini or Nang-ga organized one driver who led to another and then another, but the last one is someone who you want to know. His name is Gusti and his number is 62 81999 222556. Gusit speaks enough English. His car is very clean and nice. The best part is his attitude. He is always ready and wants to take you where ever you want to go. He is very polite and grateful for the work and happy to be paid. He never pushes, complains and will help you. He is well worth paying the usual rate not only for him but also to avoid the unpleasant bartering with taxis.
The Villa was decorated well with high ceilings. It was charming. It had an open feel and the staff allowed us to move furniture around to do yoga and study. My husband used the weight room off the pool, which was sweet. The massages were dreamy in the bale by the pool. A highlight for us was the outside garden/pool. All around the house had manicured plants and water features. The pool overlooked rice paddies past a stream.
The Villa is located well. It is just a 15 minute walk to Bali Buddha and a few restaurants and a short car ride away from Seminyak, Canggu. Nangga will drive you on her motorcycle which for rme was both exciting and scary because we rode without helmets, but many many people ride without helmets - like almost all the visitors.
A few things why I didn't give this a 5 star, but this would happen in this area. To avoid it, I think you have to go clear to Uluwatu which does not have the restaurants or stores or activity. With this caveat, at least while we were there, at 4am each morning, a man sang loudly, probably a temple nearby. The rice fields were being burned at the time we were there which ashes provide fertilizer but the smoke got in the villa which felt like smoking a pack of cigarettes.
Nang-ga and the staff are very good at respecting our privacy. Nang-ga is also a wonderful cook. She made chicken, curry shrimp, sautéed tempeh....
All in all, if you visit this area, this villa is really great.
