Our stay at Virginie's villa was delightful. We were greeted by the host herself and taken through all the workings and recommendations that involved having the true experience of living there. When staying for only 6 days one doesn't have the time to find these gems, and relax. Virginie's advice is good.
I have a 10 month old daughter, who was besotted by a staff member, Putu, and I think this feeling reciprocated. This made for an extremely pleasant time. Having a pool in the villa would usually make me feel uncomfortable, yet with the distance from the living area to the waters' edge, the nanny and Putu, I was assured there to be no accidents.
To got to Virginie's villa to relax, you can. It's a little distance to centre of Seminyak, you only need to pay around $3 to get there if you require a taxi (8 mins drive).
Clean, spacious, beautiful to the eye and invigorating. I'll definitely be coming back. Thank you Virginie.
I cannot recommend this villa strongly enough. What you see in the photos is exactly what you get. A beautiful, stylish and clean luxurious home. The pictures are 100% accurate - without exception.
My partner, a bunch of friends and I stayed at the villa through the Christmas / NY period and it was perfect. We were a bunch of 6 people, and the villa accommodated us perfectly - enough space to be close together and plenty of room to get away from each other and have some quiet time.
The facilities are impeccable - from the rooms, bathrooms, kitchen and cooking facilities and pool. Everything has been thought of. You are truly in a home away from home that you are sure to enjoy.
Every morning we were treated to a fresh home-cooked breakfast by the Kadek. Kadek's cooking was always wonderful, fresh and tasty. We requested different breakfasts somedays and Kadek accommodated - nasi goreng, mie goreng, ayam soto. A wonderful touch.
Our host Virginie was amazing also. Virginie greeted us, oriented us with the villa and the way it works. She gave recommendations on day trips, restaurants, day spas, activities and most importantly, she was a delight to deal with at all times.
I could not recommend this villa more and have no doubt your experience was as wonderful as ours! We will be going back in the future.
Virginie was AMAZING! She organized transport to and from the airport with Ketut, who also was able to take our group around most of the island. Virginie organized 'taksis' for our rides around the villa. Even upon arrival she had fresh juices blended up for us and cold towels. We felt as if we were checking into a resort! She made amazing suggestions on where to dine, where to relax, best places for massage, best beaches, things to do, and literally EVERY suggestion was absolutely superb. By the end of our 10 day stay, we did not even question anymore, if Virginie offered a suggestion, we had to do it! Far and away the best host experience we have ever had through AirBNB, and we have been members for years now! Fantastic!
And now to the villa... Perfect!!! The open floor plan and beautiful design actually suited our group perfectly! Each indoor room was air conditioned and/or easily ventilated. Everything was open and easy to move around and use. The rooms were comfortable, the beds were spacious, the bathrooms were open and even sunlit. Everyday we would have Kadek come in bright and early to begin preparing breakfast. Anything we asked, he was so happy to do. I requested a Balinese breakfast of Bubur Ayam, and sure enough he fixed it for us. I also requested special fruits, and he delivered each time. After breakfast was finished, they would clean the houses, take care of laundry if desired, replace towels, and a separate gardener would come in to tidy up the lawn and maintain the pool. The open living areas, kitchen, and lounges were amazing areas to relax in. This villa really feels resort quality.
But the highlight, and most used part of the villa had to have been the pool. The water always seemed to be the perfect temperature! Especially with the heat, humidity, and strong sun, the pool became our best friend. The length of the pool is surprisingly long, and the pool is also deep! Needless to say it was the perfect complement to such a beautiful villa, and much of our time spend at the villa was spent in the pool.
So, YES, I have nothing but compliments and positive references to give! YES, myself and all my travel companions completely enjoyed our stay! And, YES YES YES, for our next trip to Bali, I hope to be able to deal with Virginie again.
Many Thanks!!! It was the trip of a lifetime.
Nous avons passé 17 nuits à la Stranded Villa à Umalas II.
Nous étions un groupe de 4 personnes.
Virginie est une personne très accueillante et sympathique, elle nous a donné beaucoup d’indications pour que nous profitions de tous les bons plans et bonnes adresses autour de la maison et même jusque dans toute l’île. Elle vit à Bali est connait donc bien l’endroit. Elle est au petit soin et très à l’écoute de nos besoins. Nous avons pu la solliciter sur son portable tout au long de notre séjour ce qui est très rassurant et pratique lorsque l’on ne connait pas Bali.
La villa :
La maison correspond exactement aux photos, elle parait même plus grande en vrai. Tout y est fonctionnel, propre et finement décoré.
Elle est très agréable à vivre et rien ne manque. Notez qu’à l’étage il y a deux grandes chambres avec des cloisons : sur les photos, nous ne voyions pas qu’il y a effectivement des portes vitrées. Chaque espace fermé est doté de climatisation. Les salles de bains sont spacieuses et sont toutes deux équipées de dressing.
La villa est idéalement située. A 5 mn en taxi de tous les meilleurs restaurants et autres bars et plages du quartier vivant de Seminyak.
Les villas du centre semblent moins spacieuses, plus compactes : au vu du prix dérisoire des taxis sur place, cela vaut vraiment la peine de s’écarter un peu du centre pour profiter d’un endroit calme et spacieux.
A pied autour de la maison, il y a des warungs (petit restaurants locaux) et surtout Mister Spoon la meilleure boulangerie à la française de l’île située à quelques mètres de la maison !
Le personnel :
La villa Manager est une femme adorable qui est très serviable et dévouée pour rendre le moindre service ou faire la moindre course.
Le reste du personnel (piscine, jardin) reste très discret. Les petits déj sont variés, chaque jours vous pourrez choisir le menu du lendemain avec la villa manager.
En bref, on ne regrette pas ses vacances à la Stranded Villa ! :)
Merci Natasha, nous sommes flattés par votre commentaire!
Nous avons également apprécié vous avoir comme guests...et avons été agréablement surpris, après votre départ, par l'état impeccable dans lequel vous avez laissé la villa. L'échange tout au long de votre séjour a été super fluide. C'est avec plaisir que nous vous accueillerons l'année prochaine. A bientôt à Stranded Villas.
A very pleasant long term stay at Virginie's house. Probably the best location in south Bali: 5mns by bike to the beach 10mns to Seminyak, Echo beach close by and of course amazing warungs just down the road. The house is brand new, spacious and friendly staff keeping it very tidy. I loved it, my kids loved it - we will clearly come back!
