after arriving we had no driver to pick us up as promised,the villa needs lots of renovations also no toiletries provided had to keep asking for new towles, which need to be replaced.Air conditioning kept cutting out every night.The staffwere very good cooking a birthday dinner for my husband at short notice and making sure we had lots of cold drinks.The locals made us very welcome in the street.
Another very enjoyable stay. I stayed last time with friends and this time with husband and adult son. They were very impressed with the very large and lovely living area, the pool and huge nice yard, the large 2 door fridge stocked with Bintangs and water. Putu, the villa manager is delightful and very helpful, she was there to greet us and see us off- thanks Putu! The position, in a gang off garlic lane is perfect for us. Unfortunately we could only fit in the last 3 days of our 2 week trip. Tara the owner is very easy and helpful to deal with. Thanks Tara, I'm sure we'll be back.
We have just returned from our 6th vacation in Bali most of which we stayed in villas. We usually have been a large group of adults but this year for the first time we took along our grandchildren aged 5, 9 and 12yrs. We wanted to avoid using taxis as much as possible so opted to stay in Maya near all of our favourite shops,spa's and restaurants.
This was a great choice, the location for us perfect. A lovely older villa on a huge private section and a good swimming pool.
In 2016 we had a bad experience with Dengue fever with 8 out of 12 of us going down with it. It is important that we don't get this again. Tara was understanding of this issue and worked with us to eliminate any threat from mosquito's with fogging, burners and sprays. We never even saw one!. Thankyou Tara for your help on this and for making sure both Putu and the maid understood our concerns on this.
Villa Maya is good value for money and we hope to stay again.
Thankyou Tara, Putu and the lovely maid with the big smile.
This villa is not everything the reviews say it is.
The main issue for me and my family was the EXTREMELY Loud music playing every night until the small hours. If you have a young family as I do this causes huge problems. Combined with screaming scooters going down the alley all day/night and howling dogs, don't expect to get much sleep on your holiday!
The villa itself has a great pool and is a good size, however it is quite run down and tired, with a patched broken glass patio door, stains on lots of the walls/curtains, no cold running water in the main bathroom, missing handles, broken handles no plugs etc...... It definitely needs some TLC to bring it up to a good standard.
Also be careful when using the outside furniture as most of it is rotten and falling apart.
Other guests were right when they said Puta was lovely and very helpful, but when quizzed about the loud music I was told it was a religious festival that would end in a couple of days however it went on for both weeks we stayed and never ended!(I now know all the words to 'do we come from a land down under' and have definitely heard enough rave music to last a lifetime!!)
On the plus side it is tucked away from the main hustle and bustle and has a well stocked and good priced minibar.
Stayed for 5 nights. Awesome location down a long gang off Jalan Sahadewa (garlic lane) right in middle of Legian. The villa and yard are large, lovely gardens and pool. Perfect for a family holiday. big kitchen if you like to cook. Comfy beds.
Putu looked after us well.
I Loved Villa Maya. So much room inside and out. Putu very helpful and nice.The gardens and pool were beautiful and well maintained although we never saw these people! Ringgo our driver who we also used for a day trip was delightful, knowledgeable and a great driver who didn't scare me once ( this was a first for me and it's my 7th visit in past 5 years)! We always spend a lot of time around garlic lane so the position was perfect for me.
The only things I've had in the other 5 villas I've stayed in that weren't there were the hot and cold water dispenser, and tvs in the bedrooms. These were minor things (and really didn't miss the tvs but I did miss the water dispenser) and the villa and location more than made up for these things. Thanks.
We chose to stay at this villa as it was close to the venue (Bali Mandira Resort) for our daughters wedding.
It was our 1st time to Bali and we didnt have a clue where to stay. So when this villa came up and we loved the look of it and was close to where we wanted to be.
We are so pleased with everything about Villa Maya. Its location,its size, its cleanliness, its price. Its security, and yet quite secluded from all the hassle and bustle.
Mo the cleaner comes in every day and is very
discreet and lovely. As is Putu the villa manager .
We enjoyed every bit of our stay here and we will definitely book it again.
Thank you Dave & Karen
