Our house has staff so the cleaning and changing of linens and towels is taken care of. If you would like to cook there are pots and pans, plates and utensils for this. Our refrigerator is standard size and is great for households who want to make their own meals.
We prefer that you smoke out on the upper deck or by the pool. There is no smoking in the bedroooms.
The house is to be used ONLY by the people who are renting it. If you are planning a reunion or a party, this must be discussed with us in advance. including how many people will attend, etc.
There are additional costs for outside guests using our house for functions, parties, reunions etc.
We live next to a traditional village. Please respect our neighbors by not playing loud music after 8pm. Please don't entertain large groups (if you do, we need to inform the village and sometimes there is a fee required). This is our family home, please take care of it and enjoy it as much as we do.
I was for 4 days with my boyfriend, my friend and her daughter. At first, I was little disappointed since little temple construction going on right next to villa. The villa was very cute and good features. Good size poor, very clean, nice balcony and comfortable layout of furnitures. But most of all, we love this villa because of Nyoman, who works at this villa, to clean, make us breakfast, gave us informations on tour, 24hr on call when we needs any help. If I list all the things he has done for us to have our trip better, might take few days.
Norman was absolutely amazing and could not do enough to make our stay comfortable enough. He organised our driver and laundry at very reasonable rates. Breakfast was included with a selection of three different menus.
The general location was convenient with a 20 minute walk to the beach and 15 minutes to the main Seminyak shops, or a short taxi ride. The villa was down a single lane that took about five minutes to walk to be in a position to catch a taxi.
Overall the villa has a modern spacious feel. The bedrooms are downstairs however there is no living space that interacts with the pool as the kitchen, dinning and lounge are upstairs. The bedrooms were comfortable with a large bathroom attached. Water pressure is very low and the hot water readily ran out.
The internet was very slow to say the least. Connection was only available in the first number of hours in the morning.
We had no problem with the neighbours as other reviews have mentioned, however there was the constant din from the construction site next door during the day.
Overall we were happy to stay.
We just spent a week at the Villa Sassy and had the best time. From the pick up at the airport to the very last breakfast served at the house, everything succeed our expectation. The design of the villa was great, the location very central, but what made it so special is the service given by our butler, Nyoman. He made us feel like our family in Bali. hope to be back in a near future.
We had a wonderful time at Villa Sassy! Nyoman was so helpful and always on hand if we needed but also gave us privacy too! Everything is close from massage to places to eat to the laundry! Only wish we could have stayed longer. Recommend!! Thanks again!!
I spent with my wife 20 nights in Villa Sassy. Since 8 years we come to
Bali and stay in Villas, but this Villa was the best I ever rent. When someone like this modern style he will be satisfied. The Villa is bright and clean. The pool is big enought and for me important, the Villa is in a quiet area, but to the beach or fine Restaurants its just a short way.
There are only two things I wish to fix it for the next stay. There is no TV to look some News or Sport. The owner David promise to do a cable
TV soon. Great!( Next time I will be happy to talk to David face to face.)
To become more privacy , the wall around the Villa must be a Little higher with Bambus , because some new buildings near by can look
in the garden and poolarea.
I have a nice talk to the Manager Sak Ming and told him my thoughts. He know this Points already and promise, that all will be done.
One Thing: the Young stuff Nyoman is the best stuff we ever had.
Always very friendly and helpful.
We will come back next year, I hope more than "only" 20 nights.
I hope my english is good enough for this Rating!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sassy Villa. There were 4 of us on a girls weekend away and the villa was very spacious and we were very well looked after by Ngauh. Our delicious daily cooked breakfast was a highlight, as was the space itself. It was very well decorated and modern. The whole Villa was kept very clean for the duration of our trip as well. We did find that although located down the end of a long driveway it was still very close to all the action of seminyak centre. And it took us approximately 10 mins to walk to the main shopping district of seminyak. You also have a variety of restaurants (Kilo was great!!!) and little 711 stores on the road that the long driveway runs off as well. I would definitely stay here again with my husband or a quiet couple of friends.
The only cons
- neighbors are not tolerant of any noise and have hand painted a sign at the end of the driveway stating this (and that they have dogs), so you feel a little nervous to enjoy the villa and its outdoor spaces at all, especially at night out on the gorgeous terrace area.
- There was no hot water in the showers, but it's never cold in Bali so you can get away with it.
- There is a construction site right next door that starts up at 9am everyday which has a clear view of the pool space and into your bedrooms if you do not have the blinds closed fully, so there is a bit of a privacy issue whilst that is there.
All in all I highly recommend this Villa for a quiet getaway!!!
We totally enjoyed our stay at Villa Sassy. My kids especially loved the pool. Located a short taxi ride away from the beach or you can take a nice stroll along the shops to get there too. Will definitely be recommending to my friends. Special thanks to Nyoman (caretaker/cook/housekeeper/concierge) for being super helpful with all my needs. Will definitely be looking forward to being back again!

About the Host, David And Brenda
David, my husband was a set designer and furniture designer for the movie industry in Los Angeles for thirty years and worked with the tops in the industry....Steven Spielberg, Jodie Foster, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen and many more. His built the Captains Chair for Star Trek Insurrection and had the most "ordered" bed in TV history from the TV hit, "Mad about You".
He designed furniture for many top Restaurants in Los Angeles from the Saddle Peak Lodge in Malibu to Malibu Adobe with Ali McGraw. His resume is extensive and his client list is long....Billy Crystal, David Hasselhof, Arnold Schwarzanegger to Keenan Wayans.
He has translated that skill into building ten amazingly different houses since he's come to Bali. Our house is amazing and you will see why he is so in demand!
I have a variety of interests that keep me busy. I have spent years doing spiritual growth work and now work with others with addiction and codependency issues. I love this work and the chance to give back what I was taught. I've been an artist my whole life so our home is filled with original art ( mine and others) and I have an awesome studio..Anyone that loves to paint will fall in love here. My latest passion is teaching Zumba, What a blast!
As you can see, we are both loving our life and filling the hours manifesting our dreams. We both are creative artists and love to explore the world and the people in it.
Since we've been in Bali we've been taking in South East Asia. We love Vietnam, and Thailand for their amazing cuisine.
We are frequently traveling, so we are sorry that we don't get to meet all our guests, but we leave you in the hands of an amazing staff and manager, Eko and Sakming, who will be your contact people.
