Upon arrival, the staff made me feel very welcome. The following two mornings each of the owners stopped by at breakfast to welcome me. Such a warm, helpful attitude by the staff prevailed throughout my 5-night stay. A hot-water problem was resolved within a day, with a free massage (excellent) offered to compensate for the inconvenience.
The location was convenient for both beach and a wide array of restaurants. That said, it's not the hosts' fault that walking in the neighborhood (or any other neighborhood in Seminyak) is not for the timid; the lack of sidewalks and overwhelming number of taxis and motorbikes hogging the narrow roads can be daunting. Perhaps that's why one seldom saw any Balinese walking. The occasional menacing dog adds to the deterrent to walk.
Merci pour tout, nos nuits et moments au sein de la villa Ginger on été magnifique, une équipe au top, un accueil très chaleureux.
Merci encore d'avoir été de bons conseils pour tout nos petites escapades, nous conseillons les villas ginger à tous les touristes qui souhaitent passer quelques jours à Seminyak.
The Staff where very good and very helpful and speak excellent English.The room was small but very clean.Day beds very comfortable bye the pool the bigger apartments down stairs are fabulous. Lou and her Husband are very friendly made us welcome. The Rooster next to my window was not.
Great budget accommodation. Minor comments about the design, the towel rail on the shower cubicle is not too clever (the towel get's wet) the cubicle could do with a screen or shower curtain ( the WC area gets wet). Apart from that it was a very comfortable stay. The service levels were very, very good. Vita warrants a special mention.
Lovely Villa! Exactly as in the photos. Great breakfast. My room had an outdoor kitchen which was beautiful to sit in the late afternoon. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
The room was clean and especially the bed was really comfortable. The service was really good and the staff is very friendly. However, the room and the breakfast were quiet basic. The wifi worked well and the shower was including warm water, so that was nice.The location is good because within 5 minutes you are in the city center and the beach by motorbike.

About the Host, Lou
We moved to Bali from Australia in 2007 with our youngest son. In Australia, my husband Grahame was a highly acclaimed Theatre Director and Writer whilst I was a successful Theatre Set and Costume Designer, Tour Manager and Producer. Having reached the peak in our respective careers and with our eldest son married and living in Sydney, it was time for a new adventure, a new life and a new challenge. We had finished renovating our dream home in Fremantle and I had my dream job as Cultural Development Officer for the City of Fremantle. But I've learnt that the problem with making your dreams come true, you are sure to have another dream. We were ready for a new adventure. When I was offered a job to teach at a school in Bali we leaped at the opportunity and within 6 weeks we had packed and moved to Bali to the surprise of friends and family. We were ready to immerse ourselves into a new culture whilst at the same time we hoped to indulge in some of the delights this tropical island has to offer. We built our Bali tropical dream home and that was meant to be that. Our plan wasn't to work in the hospitality industry running a small boutique hotel but that is what we have ended up doing. It started with Grahame finding a couple of antique Chinese houses which we immediately fell in love with and thought we could do something interesting with. As a professional set designer I feel like I have set the stage again, but this time it is for a tropical holiday for our guests to indulge all of their senses in the sights, sounds, tastes and tropical delights this beautiful island has to offer. Grahame on the other hand is still directing and writing, but now he is directing numerous workers, housekeepers, cooks, gardeners, tradesmen and maintenance people in the task of providing a relaxing tropical holiday so that this time your dream can come true.
We feel very fortunate to be able to call Bali home and join our Bali friends and family in welcoming you to this special island and trust you have a wonderful holiday in the good care of our wonderful staff.
