About this listing

Everyone loves my Bali home. It will charm you with its Asian flair and European comfort, with its sun balcony overlooking a long tropical pool, its elegant double bedroom and lovely sitting room. It is quietly but centrally situated, near the beach.

The space

A real escape from a busy life, this place combines the services of a hotel, such as 24 hour security and reception, a lovely 22 m pool, restaurants and bars nearby, with the total privacy and convenience of your own home. Forming part of a complex of similar houses built on two floors around the pool, it is individually furnished and has TV, a DVD player, free Wi Fi. Get creative in the well-equipped kitchen, or simply look forward to going for an interesting meal out. It's all yours, a wonderful pad for two people who like to share a most comfortable 2x2m bed, and who also like the space of living on two floors. No children, no babies.

Guest access

The house with its sun balcony is for you alone, the 22m lap pool is shared with the other houses. There is a book and DVD library at reception, and feel free to read my books you'll find in the house, but please finish reading them before you leave :-)

Interaction with guests

I am not in Sanur at the moment. However, I have a driver, Ketut, who will gladly pick you up from the airport for a regular fee and take you to the house if you so wish, and who will be available in case of any problem. Otherwise the staff at reception and around the place are very helpful and friendly. Most importantly, there is Kadek, my 'Pembantu' (=helper in the house), who will come 2X3 hours (usually Monday afternoon and Thursday afternoon) to clean, wash up, change sheets (usually once a week) and towels, and generally keep an eye on things domestic.

Other things to note

There are many things to see and do in Bali. A visit to Nicktours or an other Travel Agent will give you a good idea. Take your time and read through all the leaflets or take advice. Be aware that many unlicensed 'tour guides' might try to charge too much, on the other hand, competition is fierce, so you might find real bargains. Guests may want to ask where and when the next big cremation ceremony takes place, or how to see the special dances, or to take a tour around the island, or to the mountains. There are beautiful villages to see, just driving through and looking out is wonderful. Shopping is another big thing in Bali, lots of cheap and cheerful clothes to be found, and endless illegal copies of normally expensive items. One has to make up one's own mind whether one wants to risk a very stiff fine on entering one's home country or not. Personally, coming from England, I do not!

Margaretha's place in Bali is wonderful! I can't wait to come back and stay again. The apartment itself and the grounds and pool are lovely. The kitchen is well-stocked. Very close to the beach. Margaretha is a very responsive and friendly host.

This villa is very spacious and kept very clean. The location is excellent. Right in the middle of Sanur, so only a walk across the road through another resort to the beach, and restaurants as soon as you walk through the main gates of the villa. Despite its close location, once inside you cannot hear any traffic noise. The only sounds are from the roosters early in the morning outside the bathroom window. However closing the bathroom window and doors helped silence this noise. The bed was very large and firm, great air-conditioning both up and downstairs, as well as ceiling fans. The pool was well maintained and just 2 steps outside your door. It was lovely to wake up to a quick swim and to come home to its coolness in the afternoons. This is a very quiet apartment complex and most of the time, felt we were there alone. Host and villa manager were both excellent to communicate with - valued our privacy and helped when we needed it.

Lovely two-story condo; very comfortable and well-maintained. Recommend having Ketut pick you up at airport as he gets you set up well into the home. Location is perfect just set back from main road in Sanur with loads of restaurants and shopping. Beach is only a 5-minute walk. Condo is a fine value in Sanur and definitely recommend it for am enjoyable stay.

Excellent place, in very walkable distance to many markets, restaurants and the beach. The only issue was that the wi-fi did not work at all throughout our stay. If you need wi-fi for business or other purposes this might not be the place for you. Apart from that, it is a beautiful villa

Response from Margaretha:
I am so sorry, Jesse, that the internet was not working. After the last guest's problem I was told all was in order. This really is not good enough and will need to be sorted out once and for all. Too late for you, I'm afraid and I cannot apologize enough.

Beautiful place but there was no internet and no sattelite TV. We were there during raining season and it was a pity that we couldn't watch TV or use internet when it rained, and we couldn't do some work for our businesses. We had to go to bars to get (unsafe) wifi. During the 3rd day it still wasn't fixed so we decided to go to another place. Margaretha refunded us but she paid us back less then the amount that was still open for the next 3 nights. I think if you can't deliver what you offer, you should pay back the whole amount for the nights that we haven't used the place. Too bad because it was a very nice spot, but this is a bummer.

Response from Margaretha:
I apologized and suggested after two nights Barbara move out, and I paid her back 10% over the published price for the 3 remaining nights. As to 'not delivering what you offer' and 'noise', in my listing I do actually mention in the 'Neighbourhood' section that the cockerels next door might wake you up in the morning, and that the place might not be suitable for people who require total silence at all times. So I believe my listing is accurate. I do not run a hotel with lots of staff, just offering my lovely home, which was fully functional again the evening this guest had moved out. All is well that ends well - for guest and host.

Very private but central. The most comfortable bed we have ever slept on in Bali. Very reliable and fast internet. Nice to have a big fridge and to have extra room to watch TV and relax. Pool always clean, driver Ketut very reliable and friendly and the apartment was very clean. Morning rooster isn't a problem if you close the bathroom door. Would recommend this unit as a very homely and relaxing place to stay.
