Having a disabled child made it difficult for my wife and I to not only travel but decide on what accommodation to choose. I can confidently day that we definately made the right choice in Villa Tao. It is a beautiful place in a beautiful location. Tucked away in a peaceful Street yet only walking distance to everything you could need or want. The host Meta and her husband Roger are marvellous hosts and would do anything possible to make your stay nothing short of brilliant. Highly recommended. 10 out of 10. Thank you Meta, Roger, Villa Tao and Bali.
Meta was really nice! The house was more beautiful than what we expected it to be. Definitely recommend.
A beautiful and clean luxoriuos villa.
Compared to pictures, there are small stones around the pool instead of grass, what is even better because of the occasional rain in Bali.:)
The surrounding of the villa is nice - there are tiny streets, friendly for children trollies and the villa is close to the center.
The house is fully equiped with just everything you need - for cooking, watching tv on the couch, relaxing at the pool and enjoying holidays in Bali. The pool has a nice ledge for the kids.
The airconditioning in the rooms works well and there are a lots of fans in the outside living area.
Our host Meta was nice and gave us all the information needed. The cleaning lady was very thorough and nice.
The villa is very family-friendly.
Villa Tao was wonderful. Beautiful space, great location, quiet and secluded. Meta was great to communicate with and we couldn't have been happier spending our few days in seminyak there. Thanks for everything!
Die Villa ist ein Traum. Ein kleines Paradies mitten in der Stadt und es fehlt an nichts: Vom erfrischenden Pool (die Bilder lügen nicht), über kostenlosem Trinkwasser zum Mückenschutz in jeder Form - die Villa ist komplett ausgestattet und liebevoll eingerichtet. Wir wären gerne länger als zwei Nächte geblieben.
Our group of four really enjoyed our stay at Villa Tao. We loved the open air living room and pool. It was the perfect space to kick back and relax together. The bedrooms were comfortable, although a bit dark inside. The owner, Meta, was very gracious and helpful. She was very quick to respond via e-mail to our every request. There were some mosquitos, but they hardly bothered us because Meta provided lotions and the villa was sprayed in advance. The villa was in walking distance to many eclectic restaurants and boutiques. It was about a 20 minute walk to the beach. Our only disappointment was that the beach was covered in trash. We were told by the locals that this is seasonal (brought in on the tides from Java). We chose to enjoy the gorgeous pool instead! I would rate the accommodation itself as higher than a 4 if the beach situation had been better.
We loved our stay at Villa Tao. It was a private and beautiful villa and close to everything! Meta our host was very responsive and looked after us so well. We recommend this villa, it was a beautiful holiday. The villa is very traditional Bali, gorgeous!
