I spend 5 days in there, there was such a wonderful time. the house is beautiful and clean, in a villa, very nice, near by the black sands beach. Rafal and Tess are wonderful couple and amazing cook ! thank you so much guys! i had so much fun in bali! thank you for taking care of me! high recommend!!
My husband and I spent our first three nights in Bali with Raf and Teresa and had a great time. Their home is beautiful and both Raf and Teresa are very accommodating. This was a great place to start our journey as they were able to provide us with quite a bit of information for our time in Bali. We would also definitely recommend taking a day trip with Mr. Agung and trying the homemade perogies (best I've ever had!!).
We spent 3 days in the Gili Islands which are basically "Paradise Lost, Killed, and found Dead floating on polluted water with no marine life left". Never felt so disgusted in our life. Hence coming to Denpasar to the wooden villa was filled with nasty anticipation from our part. What else can go wrong? The boat company's car stopped in front of this house with bamboo gate. The moment Raf came out and greeted us, all the weight lifted off from my mind. The beautiful garden with small but clean pool, an old, fantastic house, totally remodeled and then Teresa's beautiful smiling face made us feel "civilized" again. Once we went upstairs to the living room and the to our bedroom where our bed was covered with flowers from the garden I almost started weeping in joy. The joy of finding like minded people who care for others. I took some of the reviewers' advice and begged Teresa to make us Pierogi dinner which she did. The salad and the Pierogi dinner was the best food we had in our 3 weeks in Indonesia. Next day's breakfast was heavenly with Raf's home made bread. What a treat! I was sad that we had to leave after only one day. Teresa and Raf made us lunch to take in the plane. We do not eat meat. It was Tempe with mushroom, onion, and tomato. Delicious and my husband ate almost 80% of it. Even after a week, we are thinking of this beautiful couple, two incredible human beings with so much fondness. Hope to see them one day in SF.
Staying with Raf and Teresa was the best choice we made for our trip to Bali! The space is a wonderful little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas. It is within walking distance of the beach and the local neighborhood is friendly and full of dynamic Balinese architecture. All the amenities are clean and comfortable. And the daily homemade food is delicious! Raf and Terese truly make you feel at home and cater to your needs. It feels like you are staying at a five star resort, without the five star cost. Highly recommended!
This place so homely that you can relax with good foods and many cozy corners! Rafal and Teresa manage their villa with lots of great efforts with passions! Every meals was a surprise with their company and life experience sharing:) I am so blessed to stay with them!
Gracious Host , Wonderful Cooking, Calming Ambience, Good Privacy, Relaxing Holiday & on top of all these - Best Home Baked Bread + Best Pirogue(must try) & Tempe Salad !! All are happening at Wooden Villa at Rafal and Teresa's charming place.
The 'legendary' breakfasts prepared by them were truly fantastic- They are both wonderful host with very good insights about the island's what-to and what-not.
They have trust-worthy driver that provides tours around the island or to the towns.
We have learnt a lot about Bali from the driver Gung who was really passionate about introducing his island.
I have tried Balinese traditional massage at the villa, it was a bliss!
In the day time we strolled down the street in the village to the nearby black sandy beach, where villagers were carrying out their daily tasks, the surrounding rice field is like a painting with farmers harvesting their crops.
After a warm day, the pool in the garden was truly welcoming !
The village temple was quiet during day time & when the night fell it was the all night long chanting and singing as the perfect backdrop music for our candle-lit dinner in the dimly-lit garden under the stars.
We were pampered with very clean, European.standard bathroom, with clean towels; which from my past experience in Bali, was a real luxury.
Bed was clean with perfect white sheets, We did not use the aircon as the nights had been rainy.
Both my husband and I agreed that this was the best choice we had made for stay in Bali,
It is a home away from home and for anyone who wants to experience Bali without the common tourist surroundings.
All the reviews I have read about Wooden Villa came true for us. It is indeed great value for money.
Thanks a million to Rafal & Teresa for making it a memorable stay :))
