The villa was amazing and for a reasonable price had everything you needed. Chris was an excellent host. He responded promptly to all the messages and questions we sent him. I would recommend opening a dialogue with him should you wish to rent his place. He can answer most, if not all, of your concerns. He was very helpful and his responsiveness was one of the reasons we decided on Villa Marjens. The villa is situated in Seminyak and a driver, car rental, or motorcycle rental is highly recommended. Wayan, who is Chris' driver, picked us up from the airport and dropped us off after the trip. He referred us to his friend Bagus who drove us around during our stay. They were both very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable which made our stay in Bali very enjoyable. They provide this service for a price. About 50 USD for 8-10 hours. Overall Chris and Villa Marjens were an excellent selection. We will be back for sure.
Beautiful villa (photos don't do it justice) the first look takes your breath away. Wonderful staff, accommodating and always with a smile. Definitely recommending it to all my friends to make sure that they stay at Villa Marjens when they visit Bali
The place was beautiful and as exactly as described! The pool right in the centre was a lovely place to relax. Though a bit difficult to locate initially, the place is very close to Seminyak beach which was a plus point. The place and amenities and its proximity to some excellent shopping/eating places made our stay a pleasure.
The host Chris was extremely prompt in answering all our queries during the course of our booking.
A word of caution - the mosquitoes may trouble travellers a bit. Also, it would have been nice to have Wayan, the caretaker, visit us during the course of our stay. He seemed a bit uncooperative to some of our requests.
Fast response to requests from host Chris.
Great price for a pool villa in Bali.
You pay for what you get. The location is remote, but we engaged a driver so it is not a problem for us. Just forget about walking around the neighborhood cos it is very remote.
Internet don't work, no hair dryer, no toiletries, so bring your own soap and shampoo.
There are mosquitoes so need to prepare repellents.
Overall cleanliness, especially the towels can be improved.
Very spacious villa for my girlfriend and I. Great facility with pool, kitchen, couches, TVs with cables, etc. Very quiet neighbourhood so privacy is ensured. The location is a bit far from the main Kuta area which proves to be challenging for taxi drivers. Overall great experience and will encourage others to go for a stay.
This villa was just what we were looking for: a wonderful place to return to after a long day of exploring and adventure in Bali. The entire villa is clean, beds are king size (!), comfy with luxurious linens, the kitchen was well equipped and the water dispenser made all the difference (hot and cold water available at all times). For us though, it was really the pool that made us happiest!
The villa is in a quiet neighbourhood close to the trendy Petitenget area of Seminyak though is quite a distance to walk (and the pavements in Bali are not the best...). We enjoy walking so didn't mind and had organised a driver so getting around was not a problem for us. If you have young kids or mobility issues, best to pre-organise a driver - the villa can organise this for you.
We did not get to meet Chris but he was quick to respond to my questions with lots of useful information. The villa is managed locally by Wayan, who we also did not get to meet but spoke on the phone when we checked-in and before we left. Our contact was with the cleaning crew who are young Balinese, quite shy and soft spoken though always polite, professional and very ready to help out.
We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed every one of them!
We had an awesome stay at Chris' villa! The place itself is beautiful & peaceful, it's impossible not to relax. We were traveling with our 2 yr old & 3 mth old twins, and the setup was excellent for us - all the basics we needed in the kitchen & we were able to sterilise bottles using the microwave, and reheat meals that were interrupted easily (which happens a lot to us!). Wayan, the villa manager & driver is one of the nicest people we've ever met. He went above & beyond to ensure that we had a much-needed recharge but also got to do some day trips to visit temples etc. If the babies were sleeping by the time we arrived somewhere he even offered to look after them for us while we did our sightseeing, he was just lovely. We shared a couple of meals with him, and he would bounce and comfort the babies so that we could eat in peace. There are places to eat nearby, the villa is cleaned daily, the beds are comfortable & Wayan even organised his sister to babysit the twins when we wanted to take our daughter out for a while. We are so grateful & left the villa feeling energised & so happy we made the trip. Thank you all so very much, we will be back!
