Well located just off Poppies 1, some construction noise due to new Kuta Townhouse development but not enough to be a problem. Facilities excellent brand new shiny large fridge. Bathroom smallish but adequate, nice hot water for shower. Bed comfortable with plenty of pillows. Some books and videos available in room if chilling out. Nice pool area available if required in AP apartments next door. Karen was available and with partner Gerry very friendly and helpful at all times. Susan cleaned the studio spotlessly even cleaning my partners shows hahaha. Had a great time thankyou.
The house manager was perfectly pleasant although seemed a little rushed and difficult to understand. The neighborhood was great. Super central, many restaurants and bars, the beach a short walk away and the pool was deserted every time we went. Also, the pool is a great place to watch to sunset and avoid some of the crowds at the beach.
Very centrally located in Kuta, we were able to walk everywhere we needed. The apartment was clean and in a quiet location. Had some issues connecting to the wifi but was not a problem as next doors wifi was unsecured.
Was a nice bonus to have 19L of drinking water in the room.
Also the man (Wayan) right outside gave us a great tour on our way to Ubud for not much more than we were going to pay for a group shuttle.
The apartment was really comfortable and clean. The location is fabulous and we loved the rooftop pool. It is well worth the stay and Karen was extremely helpful and kind. We will definetely stay here again if we come back to Bali in the future.
This place was as described on AirBnB. Te bed was good to sleep at. The bathroom small but does the job.
All organisation & communication was excellent. The appartment is very central located to the beach and restaurants. The housekeeper also arranged us an drive to our next destination.
The studio was perfect!
It was beautifully located, right in the centre of everything but secluded and away from the noise and hustle and bustle.
Having access to the hotel pool was a godsend, it really made the stay. We enjoyed many an afternoon on the rooftop, having a swim and a drink, watching the sunset and then returning to our apartment before heading out for dinner.
The bed was super comfortable (which is so important) and the room was furnished well. I spent one morning on the little balcony/veranda reading, listening to my surroundings wake up. It was lovely!
The bathroom wasn't perfect, it was small and extremely simple but that really didn't matter. The whole stay was just wonderful.
We were in walking distance to Legian Beach Road and Kuta Beach Road so were surrounded by everything I could have wanted to eat or drink. Not being in a hotel made me explore the area more as I didn't have the option to order food from a kitchen where I was staying. This was great, we found some really lovely places to eat.
I felt safe and secure the throughout the whole stay and really enjoyed myself. Karen was a wonderful host and we were made to be so comfortable. There were fresh towels, a water filter, great aircon, WIFI, a TV and DVD player. There were even books in wardrobe in case we wanted to read and didn't have anything with us.
I'll definitely be back!
Bottom Line: I would stay again.
Review: Location was good and the room was quiet. It was a 5 minute walk to Kuta Beach and a 7-10 minute walk depending on where you went on Legian Street. The room does not get alot of direct sunlight and I found this to be a good thing if you want to sleep later and also made sitting on the patio very relaxing. Shower was hot. The safe in the room was a nice touch. Lots of tasty, inexpensive places to eat as well as inexpensive massages. The pool was very nice. Check in was quick and easy. The manager showed me around the area and was very nice. Internet is not very strong in the room which wasn't a big deal since I wasn't working on this trip but could be a problem for someone who needs consistent Wi-Fi. Also, the air conditioning broke during my stay but Karen resolved the situation to my satisfaction. When the AC did work it worked extremely well. Good selection of TV stations if you just want to relax in the room for a while. Also, the street is narrow so a taxi will not be able to drive you directly to the door. expect to walk for about 5 minutes. Motorbikes (ojek) are plentiful if your suitcase isn't too big. I think you'll enjoy your stay.
Thanks for the review Chris. We replaced the air con so alls good. The taxis do come down Poppy's Lane and if they drop you off on the Secret Garden corner, it's only a minute to walk to the studio. Pre booked taxis will also collect guests from the corner to go back to the airport but we usually find it's just as easy to walk up the lane to the main road. Thanks once more and we hope to see you again.
About the Host, Karen
I love to travel and usually spend several months every year in Bali. I'm a keen gardener and grow almost all our own fruit and veggies. when I'm in Bali we shop at the local food markets and eat with the locals. We enjoy sharing our Bali apartments with guests who take care of the studios and appreciate the very good price and value of our rooms.
