Our stay at this villa is worth the money we paid. Generally it's clean. Basic necessities provided. Toilet is clean. The bed was good for a night sleep after a tiring day in Bali. We requested an additional bed which is equally comfortable. Aircon works well. Clean bed sheets. Clean Towel. Comfortable pillows.
There are mosquitoes around. Baygon is provided. Hence, remember to change it every night. Many lizards too which is unavoidable considering the environment where the villa is.
The swimming pool was quite small. We had a good dip on our last day in Bali. There we no lights in the pool for the first two nights. After contacting Delfin, the swimming pool was lighted on the third night.
TV works well. Both Indonesian & English channels provided. There are DVDs provided too.
We did not utilize the kitchen. Except the water dispenser which works well for both cold and hot water. Fridge is provided too. Good condition.
WiFi is provided too though it's a bit weak. Hence, we have to on & off the router to re-activate the WiFi.
The walkway into the villa can be quite dark. No lights. We use our mobile phone light to walk along the walkway. No lamp post etc.
It's not a big villa. Good for 4-5 people. Conducive environment. Not noisy. Very quiet.
Laundry services provided. You can inform the housekeeping or Delfin for laundry services.
Location of villa is quite ok. You have to walk a distance to reach the main road where the restaurants and eateries are. There is Sun Shoot Cafe one villa away from our villa. Opens at 8am. We did not have our breakfast there so nothing much to comment Sun Shoot Cafe.
Indie's response time was ok. Her reply is usually within 24 hours & not on the spot. As for Delfin, it's good to contact him directly as he did not really respond to my SMS. Delfin & the housekeeper are both friendly.
It was a great stay in the villa. Recommended for a smaller group of 4 for a comfortable stay. Do check on the air cond to ensure room is cool upon arrival-1 room worked the other didn't. Have to thank Delvin and his assistant for providing such great support after my feedback on the above. Also, do light up the pool as it is quite dark for a night swim in the pool though we have lights around. Lastly, the kitchen can be equipped with more tall glass and more lights for the bathroom (too dimmed) with lower mirrors please ... (We are shorty) All in all, we really enjoyed our stay for the price paid and thank you Indie for your kind consideration for all requests requested. ;) ♡ Thanks Delvin & assistant!
We loved Indie's villa. I did not expect the villa to be as great as the photos and was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The villa is well located - an easy 10 minute walk from the main part of Seminyak, and in a nice and very friendly little area.
Highly recommend this place. We will definitely stay there again.
My husband and I recently stayed for 4 nights at Indie's villa and had a very enjoyable stay. The villa itself is private with a lovely pool, good air-conditioning, an outdoor bathroom and some kitchen facilities. The kitchen could use a few more cooking utensils (ie. wooden spoon, bread board) but it was adequate enough that we cooked a few meals there. There was only 1 hot plate working on the stove however this did not concern us. We weren't greeted on arrival at the villa except by the cleaner who spoke limited english so weren't given any information about the internet or the facilities, however when I followed up with Indie via airbnb she responded immediately to let me know the internet details and to apologise as she had been called away to the doctor. The villa is not in the best location as you need to cross Sunset Rd to get into the Seminyak area (which is a very busy road for those who don't know) however it actually only takes about 15mins to walk from the villa into the main Seminyak shopping area so it's not too bad. We got a lot of taxis though as sometimes it was too hot to walk. It is worth noting that the directions provided to the villa on airbnb were incorrect and we were only able to find the villa originally after our driver made 3 phonecalls to Indie to establish the correct place as no address was provided. The lack of address (it's a fairly new villa in a fairly newly developed area I think) made it impossible for us to call a taxi from the villa, we always had to walk out to try and flag one. These few hiccups however did not affect the lovely time we had. It was the end of a 2 week trip for us in Gili Trawangan and Bali so we were happy to just hang out by the pool and cook dinner and read with the occasional shopping/dining trip but for those wanting something right in the thick of it, this villa is probably not for you.
Very good villa, didn't have any issues. Awesome location to stay at, 10 min walk to eat street but away from all the noise. Darwin was awesome, cooked a great breakfast. When we were there the shower head broke and I emailed indie who sorted it out in no time! Will definitely be back. I would say that hiring bikes was a little expensive when we got them for 35,000 rupiah a day for 9 days, but was quoted 70,000. Indie sorted us out for a lift to the airport with ease!! Everything was clean and well worth what we paid
Nice place! Was always clean, would definitely stay there again!
I really love this villa..it's a simple villa with a great location since this is my first trip to bali so it's easy for us to find restaurant, beach and shop.we rent motorbike for 2 days. I prefer to stay in this villa than a hotel room because it's cheaper than hotel especially when u go in a group 3-4 person. I feel really comfortable here..we get our own space , garden, pool and lot's of privacy. I really enjoyed my stay in sandalwood villa ..we dont have any problem at all ,everything just nice and great experience for our first trip to bali .indi and danny also very hepfull and show us all the good restaurant and cafe in semunyak and oberoi..and it's just took 5 minutes to go to all the hip area in oberoi. This villa also close to double six beach..u have to use motorbike or car to go there but it's just around 10 minutes to go there .I really recomend this villa for all of you the traveler who like to enjoy private space with your friends or family..and we definitely back again!!
The villa was amazing, we have a fantastic experience ..it's clean , has a simple tropical garden and bali simple design..me and my friends feel comfortable there and the location is great, it's easy to find and really near to the big supermarket, very close to oberoi where we can find a lot of good restaurant and boutiques. . and just took 5 minutes using motorbike to double six beach.the neighborhood is quite and nice. Indi and danny was a good host, they went out their way to make our stay enjoyable. For us the sandalwood villa is really worth the price, we have an amazing experience in bali and in this villa, we would recommend this villa and definitely will be back again for sure.
Indie and her husband was very helpful when we had a crisis about the place. Imagine two gay men traveling first time to Bali, and we arrived Seminyak after a luxurious 3 day experience in Ubud so our expectations were quite high. Seminyak looked like a large, crowded city and the location and the suburb of the villa was not impressive when we arrived with a taxi. It was hard to find the place but luckily our driver talked to Indie on the phone and got the exact location right. I must say we were underwhelmed when we walked in and thought this place does not look like the one in the photos. I called Indie and said we want to leave immediately and get a refund, but that was not possible. They moved us to the next identical villa which was a bit better - at least the rooms had a less of a damp smell. We ended up not using the pool or the kitchen at all times, the bathroom experience was not great either, bugs lizards jumping in the bathtub, sink not draining well etc. there were enough reasons for us to call this place average. On the other hand Indie and husband were very nice to us, they drove us around seminyak, first day and introduced the town, they wanted us to feel comfortable and happy. Indie arranged our airport transfers for free to compensate for our dissatisfaction. To be honest we had high expectations and 4-5 star hotel quality when booking this place, and hence the disappointment. If you want to be in the centre, be close to everything, and have higher than average standards then i would not recommend this place.
We loved this villa! Worth every penny, just like the pictures!
Indie was a great host, solving any problems we had with efficiency and a smile :) would recommend to anyone!
