When you're looking for the perfect place to stay there is lot's of stuff to consider: service level, price level, location, amenities, space, great pool et cetera. Golden Villa get's high scores on almost all for us. Okay, the location isn't perfect (it's 15 minutes walk to Hardy's and 10 minute to the beach), but that could easily be solved by renting a bicycle our motorbike. Everybody (Gary, the maid Kadek, the security men) goes out of their way to help you and make you feel at home. And there is a lot of attention to detail. Plus you can't beat having three bathrooms when you're travelling with teenage girls :-)
At first I was a bit worried about my toddler (1,5 yr) falling into the pool, but we could keep the doors with insect screens closed, so we had fresh air and she couldn't just walk out. It's not as safe as having a poolfence, but it helps! And when Kadek the maid was there, she would always keep an eye on our daughter (she would even go play with her, so we could have a quiet breakfast).
There are some great accommodation at the beach in Sanur and if you have enough to spend, I would definitely consider them, but if you're looking for a reasonably priced, spacious villa with great service then Gary and Maureen's place should be definitely on your list.
This private villa was better than we anticipated, and it already looked great from the description and photos! Gary and Maureen were ideal hosts, meeting us when we arrived (earlier than they expected) and facilitating our departure (allowing us to stay late, leave our bags, etc., for a late flight). They have extensive information available on local places to visit and eat. The full-time maid was extremely gracious and helpful, arranging for transportation whenever we needed it. I can't think of a single way in which our experience could not have been better. The space is beautiful, open, quiet, comfortable. The best!
Garry was there to welcome us when we arrived at Villa Gamour for a five-night stay. Friendly and helpful, Garry oriented us to the property and the neighborhood. He gave us great restaurant recommendations and helped us plan things to do in Bali during our stay. The property is exceptionally renovated (by Garry himself!), maintained, and clean. The pool is perfect for cooling off during a mid-day siesta. The kitchen is well-equipped. The bedding is high quality. The blinds, fans, and AC units make for a good night's sleep. The TV and internet were a bonus for evenings in. The price includes daily housekeeping, which is so lovely to have on vacation! Villa Gamour is in a safe and secure complex called "Golden Villas," which is an easy walk to the main street of Sanur. We rented bikes for the duration of our stay (USD1.50 per day), bopped around Sanur and enjoyed the long beach promenade each day. One day, we hired a car and driver (the husband of the housekeeper) to take us to Ubud and various places along the way (USD40.00 for 10 hours). It was a lovely holiday and we would definitely return!
Wow! Our first trip to Bali and I thought I had read enough info to be prepared. Our first day was so over whelming and I wasn't liking it at all!
Thank heavens for Garry, he went out of his way to make us feel at ease and gave us tips to get us through our first couple of days. The Villa was amazing.. Our 2 boys aged 10 & 13 made very good use of the pool and the maid service was a plus. Wish we could have stayed longer as the Villa was a great location once we were comfortable with the area. Thanks again to Garry .. Sadly we missed Maureen but hope to catch her on our next stay in Sanur at one of their Villas.
Villa de rêve avec tout le confort havre de paix pour le repos en toute intimité. Nous n'avons pas eu le plaisir de rencontrer Maureen mais Garry que nous avons vu 2 fois est un gars bien sympathique qui connait très bien tous les endroits de Sanur et pourra vous donner plein de conseils. La présence de Kadek qui est quelqu'un d'extrêmement gentille est serviable et qui prend en charge l'entretien de la maison, courses, et entretien du linge est un vrai plus.
La villa est située à environ 500m de la rue principale, prévoyez une lampe de poche pour le retour le soir
The villa was in great condition. Clean, well equipped, lovely pool and great location. Garry gave us some great advice about local businesses to use. Kadek was very helpful and went out of her way to help us, even though we were there on public holidays. Thank you!

About the Host, Maureen And Garry
Were a couple in our mid 40's living in the Island of the Gods. We love the easy going laid back lifestyle in Sanur The weather is also a plus with the average daily temperature being 28 degrees (C) year round.
Garry loves motorbikes and has a few of them, including one with a sidecar which is fun to get around on. We also have pushbikes which we use to get around Sanur on. We tend to eat out most days at the many local eateries, nightmarkets or beach warungs (shops).
We are non smokers and social drinkers who enjoy a simple stress free life now.
We have another 2 bedroom villa just down the road which is also available for rent on the Airbnb website.
