It was a wonderful stay both me and my friend at the villa! Marine was exceptionally friendly and shared about her personal experiences and some useful tips for Bali. She's also very helpful when it came to coordinating airport transfer, scooter rental and necessities. Peppy kindly offered to give us a small discount for the airport transfer and Marine helped to negotiate for a waive-off of penalty fee for our scooter rental cancellation.
The villa's location is slightly off the main street of shops and restaurants and can get pretty dark and inconvenient as it's situated in a secluded 'gang' (alley). Getting to know your way around the neighbourhood is essential on your first day as taxi drivers might be unfamiliar as well. The inconvenience though, is much avoided by Marine's advice to make taxi bookings via the local mobile they provided. Blue Bird taxis quickly became our best friend as they reliably run by meter and drives right up to your door step to fetch or to drop you off.
The villa is, as accurately portrayed in the photos provided, an open concept space so be prepared to welcome small animals like cats and toads especially during the night. The heavy downpour we experienced nightly, being able to hear the passing neighbours from the shower and screeching animals from next door might have left us a little insecure, but ultimately, the villa is well-equipped with everything (kitchen utensils, insect repellent, daily cleaning of rooms, tidying of pool) and in good condition. We enjoyed the respite of our comfy rooms and the lounge area is awesome to watch the day go by. We love the pool too of course!
It is unfortunate that we visited during the Nyepi period and much inconvenience was experienced. Unpredicted closing of restaurants that we wanted to visit, scarcity of reliable taxis, violent banging of the main door by the local 'pecalang' during Nyepi itself (probably because we had some lights on and did not adhere to the rules of Silence Day), ceasing of various activities to observe the tradition... Bali would otherwise have been a perfect sanctuary of rest and relax.
I would strongly recommend Villa Shiva to young couples or group of friends who prefer seclusion away from the bustling streets and intend to spend most of their time in the villa to full utilise the facilities. The peace and quaintness will ensure a rejuvenating retreat. (:
Vi bodde 5 dagar i Villa Shiva som var ett gulligt hus med pool. Bra planerat och en lugn och skon oas fran bilar och folk nere pa stan.
Huset var en aning mer slitet an bilderna visar och vissa saker fungerade inte, ac kontrollen, batterier..., dvd kontrollen, ngt handtag var sonder. Ingen big deal.
Marine, motte upp oss vid ankomst och var vadigt tillmotesgaende. Hon kom med tips och var tillganglig pa telefonen generost.
Det tog oss 10-15 minuter ung att ga ner till shopping och restauranger och den forsta biten att ga, fran huset, var inte sa trevlig, arga hundar och lite overgivet. Vi tog oftast taxi tillbaka pga av detta, taxi som kostade ingenting om man tog blue bird och matare.
Maid kom varje dag och stadade.
Det finns en bra mataffar vid Burger King om man sjalv vill kopa och gora frukost.
Tack Peppy for att vi fick bo i ditt fina hus!
I didn't get to meet Peppy, but i did meet Marina, who manages the Villa. She was really helpful, sweet and kindly helped us to pre-book a driver for traveling around Bali.
Overall, the villa was lovely- bedrooms/toilet/living spaces were spacious and comfortable. Though the villa is a bit tricky to find (recommend that you arrive in the day where there's ample light), the location is near some of best dining/shopping hot spots in Seminyak, so we had no trouble walking around. Good value for the cost, and i'd recommend this place if you're 3-4 people.
One thing we really appreciated, was having a local mobile phone provided by the villa- super handy when you need to contact Marina/the driver for any requests.
Only thing that could be improved is the wifi, it does cut in and out a lot, but we heard that it's largely because that's how things are in Bali (?).
Thanks Peppy & Marina, we had a lovely stay :)
We enjoyed our 2 night stay at Villa Shiva. Marine was extremely warm and welcoming and everything was in order when we arrived. The villa is very comfortable and (website hidden), warm water etc, everything worked great. It is conveniently located to all key spots in Seminyak. However, would recommend taking a cab back instead of walking back to the villa during night time as the main alley leading to the villa is dark and deserted and we did not feel safe walking back on our own since we were an all girls group. The only disappointing part was the breakfast which we had asked to be prepared for us. Got burnt toasts, butter and watermelon along with some pretty sad tea. Would recommend eating out or buying from the local grocery. All in all, a good place to stay. Thanks Marine.
Such a lovely villa.
Villa magnifique sous tous les aspects. Propreté irréprochable. Services dignes d'un 5 étoiles (cuisinier particulier, chauffeur et masseur sur demande, téléphone portable local prêté afin d'accéder à des services de "conciergerie" à tout moment : merci Marine d'ailleurs). Bref, la plus belle Villa dans laquelle nous ayons séjourné à Bali !
