Pak Budi picked us up from the airport and was very friendly and helped us get settled in as it was 11pm by the time we arrived at the villa.
There was a cool drink and air con on our arrival which was lovely.
The villa was lovely. We had 3 people and there was more than enough room. The rooms were huge and each had a luxurious bathroom.
The Western breakfast of eggs and bacon and toast and tomato was very nice. The villa is very central to cafes and restaurants and shops and only a short walk to the beach (the beach was pretty dirty so we didn't stay).
The pool was great. Long enough to do laps in, clean, well tended.
Lots of places to sit and relax including a roof top retreat.
Very quiet even though it's close to amenities.
I recommend it and will book it again myself.
When we first arrived we couldn't believe how centrally located it was, walking distance to all the best restaurants and bars and even the beach. However, once we entered the gate to the Villa you could have been anywhere, it was so quiet and private. We felt very safe. The two storey villa is a very generous size with huge swimming pool and massive balcony upstairs overlooking it. Throughout the booking process and our stay, Sasa was fantastic at responding quickly; answering any questions and providing assistance/services when required. She has also put together a brilliant team that offer in house cooking (we had a lovely breakfast on the first day) and cleaners who come around daily. Their driver was very friendly and in addition to airport transfers, we also booked him to drive us up to and around Ubud for a day trip. Overall we had an incredible stay, would highly recommend it and hope to be back soon! Thank you.
We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Vanilla 2 in August. It is a lovely bright and spacious villa (it is huge) in a fabulous location. Just metres away from Ginger Moon and Ultimo. We have stayed in many villas in Bali and this is the first villa were there was no technical difficulties like broken toilets, pools or electrical issues. It is very well maintained. Air conditioning and wifi worked well. Elok, the house keeper, was fabulous. Always smiling and laughing. She cooks a fabulous breakfast and does a great job servicing the villa each day. Sasa was fantastic to deal with also. Our flight was delayed and we arrived after midnight. Sasa and Elok were there to meet us with delicious chocolate cake and fruit juice. A really nice touch which my chocoholic daughter loved. If I was being very picky, our only minor complaint was that the pool was cold. Even the kids were not keen on swimming due to the water temperature. It could be because August is not so humid. Saying that the pool is very clean and does get some filtered sunlight. Also it would be good to have an iron available - I hate wrinkly clothes. I am not keen on getting laundry done as it is often shrunk in Bali. Aside from these minor points, it was a wonderful stay. I would come back again just for Elok's breakfast. Stay here - you won't be disappointed.
You can stay in anywhere you like but you won't get excellent staff like in Villa Van 2.
Ohh.., and swimming pool have excellent size. Love it.
Beautiful private villa with relaxing plunge pool. Had everything we needed. Butler went above and beyond to make our honeymoon to be a beautiful one. Lots of nice little touches like complementary massage, petal roses, dinner over the pool. Excellent location closed to seminyak square. Thank you Sasa & team, also my loved hubby! :)
The villa needs a major overhaul, the kitchen is falling apart (cupboard doors falling off), the kitchen is full of ants, the bathrooms are dirty, the towels are old and faded with holes and big bleach stains, beds are horrible and the pillows are lumpy. The walls are filthy and need to be repainted. There is no security service despite it being mentioned on their website as a night service and the "free" WIFI doesn't work. The noise from the road in front and alley way beside is horrific as the local staff all park their motorbikes in the vacant area behind the villa so there is noise all night. The cleaner doesn't speak any english so cannot help with any issues and doesn't clean much either, she sprayed the ants in the kitchen on morning 1 and 4 days later their dead bodies are still on the bench waiting to be wiped up. Overall this is the worse place I've stayed in my life and is not worth the money paid. We will never ever return here and I suggest anyone considering staying here to not waste your money - please learn from our mistake and stay elsewhere.
