“Perfection in Bali.”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed in Villa Iris 3 bedrooms for our week long holiday in Bali and can only rave about the villa and the staff.

The villa itself was such a great place to stay; beautiful garden around the pool and the villa itself was even better than we hoped!
Beautiful and quiet ambiance but close to many restaurants and not far from the nightlife of seminyak. The space was comfortable and luxurious and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals.
We loved lounging around all day around the private pool and never wanted to leave!
The villa was beautifully appointed and had everything we needed.

As it was our first holiday in Bali out host Marc organized day trips for us and was amazing at recommending places to see and even made bookings for us at restaurants.
The staff was really nice And made sure not to intrude on our private time. The manager, Mega, asked us when we would prefer to have the villa cleaned and we almost never noticed them the whole week we were there.

Can't wait to come back and will definitely recommend to our friends.

This was our first time in Bali and we stayed at this villa because my friend recommended it to us and I'm so happy we stayed here. The host Marc welcomed us and immediately made some nice bookings for us and wrote done all the nice places where we could eat, chill and shop.
Villa itself was beautiful and clean throughout and well equipped. Loved the outdoor rainshower, the pool and the bedrooms - it has everything you need and is stylish. The staff at the villa are all so nice and helpful, they will do everything to make sure you have a great experience.
Thank you Marc & the staff of The Villa Iris

Don't doubt. Just Book ! Feel at home in this cosy, luxurious villa. Attractive pricing. All necessities are here to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Clean, enough options to jam the kitchen, friendly and assisting staff. She ordered me even a massage therapist, cause she saw I was exhausted.

I used the villa to chill out and work a couple of days. The internet is great.Will come back again

Thx Marc & Team

“Amazing and serene villa!”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

Just a quick note to say thank you to the staff for our stay at Villa Iris.
As we had booked our stay a while back we read a few negative reviews and were pleasantly surprised to find that the villa was perfect- if there really were any issues we didn't note any of these, in fact we found that everything was in order from the clean bedding and towels to the well-stocked kitchen.
The manager went out of his way to book tours and dinners for us and arrange for transportation. We even had handy cards to give to taxi drivers with the villa address!
The villa was so quiet. No noise from adjoining villas and beautiful banana plantation out front.
The cleaning staff was efficient and thorough and accommodated our wishes when we didn't want then early in the morning.
Couldn't fault anything really. We would definitely book again and recommend this villa to friends and family.

“Great villa - ignore the weird two negative reviews ”

Firstly, great host greeted us arrival. The villa is great, spacious,clean and well laid out. Good airco....actually had to switch it off in the bedroom at night as chilly! Living / kitchen area well equipped and good dining / chilling area. Nice pool and lounge area accessible from both villa rooms here and both with good clean modern bathrooms. The resident dog is very shy and won't come to you unless you invite her and certainly won't bite so have no idea what planet the person who claims the dog tried to bite them...unless they hit it? For the rest great place....recommend it strongly!

“"Wonderful holiday"”

Just wanted to say thank you to the manager and staff of Villa Iris for out wonderful stay. 
My husband and I spent a relaxing 5 days in serene quiet and couldn't have asked for more. 
The staff was wonderful and really took care to make sure we were happy. 
The general manager greeted us on arrival to explain how everything worked and suggested restaurants for us. 
The driver Buddy was such a joy to use and the cleaning staff made sure to ask us when we would prefer to have the villa cleaned. 
Mega, the manager was always available to answer questions, take out laundry to be cleaned and also to call taxis for us when we were too lazy to walk the 50 or so  meters to the main road. 
The villa itself was a nice surprise as the green space is quite expansive as opposed to many other villas we've stayed in that felt cramped. Super private too which was perfect as we spent all day by the pool. The villa was well maintained  and even better than the photos.
Location was great; off the Main Street but facing beautiful fields and very quiet which was a nice change-our own little Oasis in seminyak. 
Can't wait to return and will definitely recommend.

“5 * Ambience…however... Also, Bali Tips and Recommendations”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

Having read all the 5* reviews I was expecting to do likewise. Unfortunately this villa only rates 2* because:
Pre administration & arrival: 5*. All emails were answered quickly and accurately. Payment via bank transfer (only in US$) went smoothly. Buddi the driver had a clear name card on arrival and got us to the villa in excellent time.
The Villa 2*. On the initial view it appears great however if you look a tiny bit closer you see all the things which are not up to standard.
Lovely Large Living Area 4* with two separated bedrooms & bathrooms. 2* Bed was fiercely firm 2*. Main bedroom door was so warped it was almost impossible to close.
Bathroom need a really good deep steam clean. 1* We never got used to having to place ALL used toilet paper into an unlined, uncovered wooden basket…urgh. We had hoped for more than one bar of Citra soap in the bathroom!
The sofa in Villa 3 was supper comfy 5* however the one in Villa 2 was terribly uncomfortable and needs replacing. 2* Unlike nearly all the competition, no breakfast or laundry is included. It is however available…at a price, AUD $20+ PER day, laundry – no idea of the cost.
Kitchen 1-2*. All the utensils need replacing and the cupboards next to the cooker smelt like a mouldy crypt (which we mentioned to the management). We also mentioned about the cutting board being a WH&S nightmare and all that happened was the poor cleaner was tasked to scrub it to death, still unhygienic and never used. Big usable fridge freezer 4*
Bespoke Plunge Pool 3-4*. Only 2 ½ m x 4m but extremely clean throughout our two weeks. No good if you actually want to swim in it though – only managed 1 stroke per length!
Location mmm…1-5*. Villa Iris is NOT in Seminyak! Go north through Petitenget and the villa is actually in a suburb called Kerabaka Kelod. 30+ minutes walk to beach and Seminyak centre. This was NOT an issue as all taxi cost less than $5AUD. Actually off a typically crazy busy Bali street, down a dirty alley. The alley and villas are very safe (lights and security all night). Villas are down a pretty flower lined side lane with a banana plantation opposite. Very peaceful.
‘Company’ Fatastic wildlife 5*. A squadron a bats at dusk with a couple of additional larger ones swooping low provided great aperitif entertainment. A pair of great ‘tweet, tweet’ sonar activated birds which sounded and looked amazing. Many cute frogs, lizards and a couple of snakes (well… compared to a big Brown they were tiny and far more scared of us). You could NOT hear the adjacent villas.
Cleaning. Our cleaner in the 2nd week, Jenti 5+*, worked flat out trying to keep the place up to standard. The cleaner in the 1st week however…smiled a lot…! Basically all the bathrooms, kitchen and living area need a professional deep steam clean (all curtains were torn). The BBQ was an unusable artefact - 0*. The washing machine 2*for entertainment (was there so we used it) sounded like an extra from the Exorcist film. Its demonic screeching, moaning, grinding only lacked talking in tongues!
Free wifi, mozzie stuff and loads of DVDs in the villa. 4*. Sadly no welcome pack/book (we did ask for one at least 3 times).
Issues. 1* Arrived and wife immediately noticed the fridge and bins were really dirty. Owner Marc visited late that afternoon. He asked if everything was OK? I said no! He then advised that we were not in the correct villa and we could move the next morning. We repacked and moved from villa 3 to 2. 1st night the bed was terrible uncomfortable. Next morning on inspection, realised it was upside down? In the event no matter as that night aircon broke and we had our own sauna, quietly melting. Informed the very helpful manager, Mega, who said it would be sorted. Two days later 4 men came and replaced it with a different reconditioned system. Sorted?…NO. That night at about 2AM we awoke to a waterfall pouring out if it. Water and electricity…mmm ..so we gingerly moved out to the guest room, again. Although we mentioned this many times it was never fixed (something about getting parts?). So, 10 of our 14 nights were not spent in the master bedroom we had booked. I did feel sorry for Mega as she clearly had her purse and management strings tied, preventing her from effectively ‘managing’.
Transport. Buddi 4+* the villa driver was brilliant in the chaotic traffic and also very cheap eg: 8hrs for AUD$60 wow! We did also use Mr JAYA 5++* (081 8055 11651) who was always on time, very cheap, had a spotless well air-conditioned car, spoke excellent English and would have been a superb guide if you needed one.
Want a Massage? For afantastic deep massage - ask specifically for Eka - $16 for 1hr - 5*

Conclusion: What a shame. This villa needs a complete overhaul. Once complete this will be a fantastic 5* place to stay. Villa staff were first rate and Lola the dog was cheeky but fun.

Trip Advisor Afternote: Having surfed, swam, slept, scoffed, read loads of books I thought to use the free wifi in order to do a little investigation into previous Tripadvisor reviews with very interesting results.
Immediately after Yvetterob’s 1* review appeared, a glowing 5* review by SAMSKY180 (who, having ‘liked’ 45 locations around the globe) decided now was the time for their 1st review – a glowing 5* review. Now if you cross reference their location (Amsterdam) with comments made by Roguish 1*….mmm. Also, over 90% of the 5* reviews were from 1st time reviewers – very unusable.

RESTAURANTS RECOMMENDATIONS:
BAMBU, Joint Top. Get a badysitter (not baby friendly) and GO 5++* Sadly it is not disabled friendly though. Only non smoking restaurant we went to – refreshing ! Must book
PETITINGET, Joint Top. 5++* (table 20 outside very romantic)..so much so, we noticed an elderly couple pre booked it 14 days solid! Drinks not too expensive as well. All food first rate.
Warung Cantina (beachclub/restaurant), 5* Quite fantastic. Best beach: Safe (life guards), gay friendly, good for children, only swim when the tide is coming in! 2 beds and umbrella all day $5. Really yummy fresh main meals $4-8, 081 237 452 606.
Sardine 5* A tad pricey but lovely setting and fantastic food – great for a lazy lunch.
Café Moonlight Bali 4*. Cosy and very good food and extremely well priced. Family run with good balcony to watch the sun go down.
Livinstone Café 3+* Good for a coffee and cake
Kendi Kunging (spelling?) 3+*. good out the back in the garden. Very smokey flavoured food but i liked it - very cheap drinks.
Angelita Tea Room (round the corner. Odd but fun 3* . Great cakes. Spoilt on one of our visits by a group of chinese youths using it for their unoffical selfi palour. grrrr
Bali Bali.3* OK but not that good an atmosphere. A pregnant women on the next table smoked throughout her meal…yuk/scary...I mean honestly...!
Bali Café 2* Wife's food was cold (sent back twice). Shame as it is a lovely setting.

Top Bali Attraction – Elephant Safari – expensive ($180 for 2) and 2hr taxi away but the ½ ride was such great fun. Stop at the Elephant Shrine on the way back (only $1 to get in) – watch out for the crazy dude bye the waterfall…you have been warned.
Taksi – All the taxi were cheap, clean and safe. Always haggle down to $4-5 for upto a ½ hour ride.
We heard good things about the water park - Ask Buddi where it is.
1st supermarket (5 mins away on the other side of the main road) is much cheaper than the one next door.
Number 1 TIP. Only if you are a base jumper / cave diver with the cranial scar to prove it should you hire a scooter.
No 2 TIP. Bring some duty free wine. Even the local plonk is $20-25/bottle. A very average bottle of NZ white ($15 in an Oz bottleO) in a restaurant there was $50-60 !!!

I hope you have found this review informative, useful and helpful…KARPTHEC
