Other Things to Note

The 1 rule is: Please do not smoke inside the house. We have ash trays in the patio and we would be most grateful if guests will abide by this.
We are 2 brothers who live in different continents growing up (US and Australia), and we decided to move to Bali together in late 2012. Right now, we decide to see a bit of the world together, so while we are traipsing the world, we are renting out our house in Bali. As the adage goes, a friend in need is a friend indeed, and we count ourselves blessed and lucky to have our friend, Sarah, who would be helping us checking-in/out guests while we are not in Bali. Sarah speaks Indonesian, English, and Italian!
Any information left out or something else you would like to know about? Please feel free to ask and we'll happily get back to you as soon as we can!
The only rule that we have is that our guests do not smoke inside the house.
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely apartment. Would definitely recommend it to other travelers staying in kuta who want to escape the noise and the crowds. Thank you for everything!
L'appartement est propre et nettoyé régulièrement. Vraiment pratique (avec sa petite cuisine et une grande douche) et correctement situé, on est en 10min à pieds sur Jl Legian et en 15 sur la plage. Le lit est bien et très grand !!
La climatisation est un peu bruyante.
Nous avons vu Wanto durant notre séjour et par mail à plusieurs reprises. Il a été très accueillant, nous a donné pleins de supers conseils et a été vraiment très arrangeant pour notre départ !
It was an awesome stay over at Hendro's Villa. Eventhough he wasnt there physically, his friends were there to take care of the chores which we didnt expect at all. Its a Villa, i thought we'd be the one cleaning our room everyday but Hendro actually send someone over to help us make up our bed. So so happy with the service given! Sucha waste that we were only there for 4days. Easy access towards kuta beach and legian. Also their clubs. Especially sky garden! Nice place! Would wanna come here again!
Super séjour!!! Appartement très bien situé a proximité de la plage, des restaurants, et autres commerces. L'appartement est propre, spacieux avec toutes les commodités vous permettant de passer un agréable séjours.
My boyfriend and I visited Bali and stayed at Hendro's 1 bedroom apartment for about 5 days. We felt that the room was accurately depicted in the photos and it was cleaned each day while we were out exploring Bali. I really enjoyed being able to have transportation arranged through Sarah (host's friend) and for airport pickup. We did have a little trouble with getting hot water, but was later informed that it had to be adjusted towards the middle rather than left or right. Minor, but it was definitely a cold shower the first night. We also had a little trouble with the wifi being slow unless we were outside or in the kitchen area. The place itself was wonderful and perfect for our stay. The only thing that could maybe be improved was the communication. At first, I was discussing arrangements with Hendro, then his brother, then over to a host friend, so it was a little inconsistent as far as communication. But this is understandable as it sounds like they are busy people. Hendro did inform us that he comes and goes between Bali and other places. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience and we would love to come to Bali again!
FANTASTIC SERVICE. CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE ROOM. EVERYTHING WORKS AS IT SHOULD. HENDRO AND SARA MADE THE WHOLE PROCESS SMOOTH AND TROUBLE FREE.
DIGITAL NOMADS BEWARE:
I'd like to start by indicating that I am going to partition my review so as to be fair.
First, Sarah and Hendro are very good hosts. They answer calls promptly and are quick to respond to any and all concerns.
The place is in a good location of Kuta (although I don't like Kuta) if Kuta is where you want to be. It is also away from the street which makes it very quite.
The place is clean and there is a cleaning woman who is very nice who does a great job.
However, as I digital nomad the most important aspect of any Airbnb rental is decent internet. That said, the internet speed here is absolutely garbage.
If you are in need of a decent internet speed I would strongly advise you to look elsewhere. To be fair most of the internet in Bali isn't very good compared to other places in Southeast Asia. However, there are other places with much better internet connection (website hidden);DR - Don't stay if you need a decent internet connection for work. Otherwise, its a quite, clean, comfortable place in Kuta if that is your thing.
Thank you for your review. However, as the reviews are viewed by public, I do need to clarify a few things because everyone who travels nowadays need internet access one way or another and this explanation is to allay their fears from booking our place.
I am sorry that the internet doesn't work to the speed that you require for your work, but to say that the speed is garbage is an overstatement. We provide wifi for each apartment and there's no sharing of bandwidth among the apartments because we were worried that if everyone logs on, then the bandwidth will not be enough. When you raised the issue about the internet speed, Sarah went to the apartment to show you that there's bandwidth quota left during your stay. Most of our guests who stay require internet access to book rooms or flights for their next destinations and they all do it from the apartment without any issue.
The wifi speed is good for browsing, email, and voice over IP. We have web developers staying all the time and they never have issues pushing / pulling code from Github and Heroku. However, the wifi speed will not be fast enough if you need to do heavy duty downloading like downloading movie or streaming movies online. Short clips of movies on the most popular video sharing platform is OK though (and I believe Sarah showed this to you on her tablet as well to show that the internet works at the apartment).
