Ask about pets, there is a beautiful garden, Smoking is OK if you don't burn the house down or throw buts in the garden or pool.
Vivienne was a lovely host and the communication was fantastic. We were greeted at the premises but the caretaker katut and given a welcome drink and shown around the place. The apartment is nice, but we found that when you close it up to go out for lunch or dinner etc, there is a terrible sewerage smell that comes up from the drains and toilets and permeates the whole place until you can open up the place and get the fans going. We didn't use the kitchen as we went out for every meal, but it is nice and fully equipped. The wifi does not work upstairs which was a bit annoying. Trying to sleep here was very frustrating as there are a number of neighborhood dogs that continually barked from about 0330 until about 0630, when the plethora of roosters took over and crowed continually all day until about 1800 hours. There was not much vivienne could do about this though.
Also if you want total privacy, then this is not the place for you. The caretaker comes onto the property at about 0800 and stays until 1200 clipping the bushes and god knows what else, then comes back at (phone number hidden) to hang around some more. Lovely guy, but it would have been nice to have some privacy whilst here. May as well have gone to a hotel with all the coming and going of the caretaker and gardener and friends. Overall it is a nice place in a good location, but didn't really suit our needs of privacy and peace.
Very good experience in term of location, accomodation, all was really good. We find in the house all we needed
The house was beautiful and clean and we were warmly welcomed by the staff with a fruit platter and beautiful floral arrangements. Vivienne is super sweet, helpful and responsive. We didn't realize that the second bedroom was detached. Since we have young children who I don't yet trust to survive a fall into a pool at night, we had them sleep on the couch in the living room which worked out fine for us. The water pressure in the bathrooms and kitchen goes up and down and I believe there are some plumbing issues as the downstairs bathroom smelled like sewage after we used the upstairs shower. The smell clears quickly once the front folding doors are opened. The one significant thing are the many roosters next door who crow from 2:30am -6:30am every day. It was tough to get a good nights rest due to the smell and the roosters.
A great massage across the street at Shangrila for 95000IDR/hr. And we enjoyed eating at Rendezvous just up the road.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay, but a bit upset about the plumbing problem , maybe it could have been rectified if you mentioned it to Mario, there is a valve that was blocked once in the upstairs bathroom that was quickly rectified once we knew..
And the chooks next door, well ! ! Candidasa remains a bit rustic,still some farms, thats what we love about the place, "wake up, it's a beautiful day beginning!!??" but usually just pre daylight, you must have had some early risers, I will talk to the neighbours at the end of May .
Massage offered in the villa for 800.000. IDR
I stayed in vista del mar at candidasa. It was perfect in every way. Highly recommend. Cleaned daily by ketut and billy. Mario also helpful and speak good English anything you need. It is very clean villa with all facilities you need for cooking and washing and iron. Good tv and stereo DVD etc. pool area very clean and warm swim with plenty sun. Close to puri bagus ocean front and easy walk into town centre. Not far walk to nice cheap restaurant Warung Boni. Very Nice and cheap. Locals very friendly. And small shops col to villa for supplies Had great time Fishing and at white sand beach. And at nice restaurant. I love it at candidasa. More quiet than Legian kuta but still has relax small local band at bars. And the food is fantastic. Vincent restaurant and la Rouge for 1st class international and local meals. Will want to come to candidasa and Vist Del Mar again and again.
Well what can I say! Vista Del Mar is ten out of ten!!
The villa is located in a nice area and so close to everything. Majority of the time we would just walk to everywhere we needed to go.
The villa is gorgeous and so roomy! We could spread out and just relax and soak up the atmosphere! Beds are comfy and the air con keeps you nice and cool!
The pool is so big, clean and refreshing. Could easily spend a couple of hours in there!
The staff, Mario, Ketut and Billy were so lovely! They kept everything so clean and were ever so helpful!
Vivienne is an excellent host, great communication and ever so friendly!
Thank you for a great stay at Vista Del Mar! I couldn't fault a thing!
