We (group of 4) stayed at the villa for 4 nights. It is a beautiful place, and the pictures are exactly how it is. The villa is well-maintained and amenities (pool/kitchen) work fine (although we experienced some water pressure issues - which we understand from Tim that this is pretty common in Bali). Annie comes in to clean the villa everyday, which is perfect. Location-wise, the villa is situated in a quiet area away from the main road, which is fantastic. There are plenty of eating places / convenience shops around the immediate vicinity. If you are looking to head to Seminyak (~IDR50,000) / Kuta (~IDR80,000), a cab ride is needed. In our experience, its not easy to flag one down on the road; however, you can use the villa's mobile phone to call a cab (Bluebird Group), or use Uber.
Tim lives next door, and is super helpful and responsive. You may also engage Nick's (driver) services if you are looking at a day trip of sightseeing. All in all, an excellent experience at this villa. Thanks Tim!
Wow what a place! We cannot thank Tim enough for such a friendly and genuine welcome to this great villa. The location is in walking distance to some great restaurants, including the famous Bali Buda, without feeling like you are in the "touristy" areas. Everyone in the area was so friendly and the area was very safe.
Tim was more than helpful in giving us suggestions and left us a local mobile phone which was the best thing for making bookings!
There is everything available from Cable TV, filtered water, kitchen facilities, menus for food delivery - you name it.
Tim also had a great driver, Nick, who was so helpful and great to chat with. Also, the massages about 20 metres down the road were great and cheap.
We would highly recommend this accommodation for anyone wanting somewhere to stay that is close enough to the action but still getting a relaxing holiday.
Thank you again Tim for being so accommodating. We wish we could have stayed longer.
Perfect Host , Perfect Villa.
From the moment we stepped into the door of Tim's villa we felt perfectly at home. The villa is exactly as it is described. It is situated about 10-15 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Legian and Kuta. It has a great open feel and is perfectly suited for a family or up to 3 couples. With the pool right outside the lounge room. Tim was a great host and very informative with regards to the restaurants and facilities located in the area of the villa, as well as things to do and see. The villa has a folder of nearby restaurants and tours etc. Another plus was the villa mobile phone supplied by Tim which has Tim's mobile number as well as the Bali Bluebird taxi number pre programmed. This makes getting to and from the villa much easier. A tip I would give is to come with an international drivers licence and hire mopeds or hire bicycles to ride around. Tim helped us to source bikes. Tim's driver Nick was very helpful and if needed is just a phone call away. Restaurant Tip: There is a great Mexican restaurant 5 minutes away from the villa ( La Mexicana). Awesome food.
Overall we would not hesitate to recommend Tim's villa to anyone who wants to live local and get away from the hustle of Kuta. We certainly will be back again. Thanks Tim.
We started our journey here in Bali and loved the area. The people here are so friendly and hospitable and we found that with the villa. Nick, Tim's driver picked us up from the airport which was conveniently close. He was very friendly and gave us a quick lesson on Bali during the drive. Tim met us at the villa and gave us a quick tour, and pointed out the courtesy phone if we needed anything. He was nearby if needed. However the villa had everything we needed so we didn't need to worry. Dealing with Tim was an absolute pleasure from start to finish, his responses were always immediate. The villa itself was stunning, even prettier than the photos that advertised it on the website. It was quiet, the pool was fabulous. The decor in the villa is beautiful. Very tastefully decorated. We felt very lucky to stay in such a beautiful place for our first stop. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to Bali. This is a great way to introduce yourself to Bali. We highly recommend having something to eat at the nearby Bali Budha. The food in Kerebokan has been great everywhere and so inexpensive. If you are looking for something a little less touristy than the hustle and bustle of nearby Seminyak, this place will exceed your expectations.
The place is exactly how it looks like in the pictures. Tim was really friendly and he came out to great us when we arrived so as when we left.
Villa is full equipped with toiletries to cooking utensils. Basic necessity is all catered for, thus during the stay so there wasn't anything short for.
They have an in-house mobile phone which you can bring out while traveling so its really convenient, the phone is for your use when you stay in the villa. You'll just need to top up RP$20,000 when its low on cash. They have a set of numbers prepared for your convenience such as taxi booking and delivery if you want to eat at home.
They also have a in-house driver which is a friend of Tim. They do day tours so if you want to go anywhere just inform them or call them with the provided numbers.
Kuta beach and the central is really near to the villa, by taxi it would take around half an hour depending on traffic.
The place is really quiet at night but you need not worry about safety as residents live in the area so does Tim. If you're hungry at night there are restaurants which does delivery around the villa so you need not worry about having to go out your self. There are convenience stores located just 5min walk from the villa.
Over all it was a real pleasant and comfortable stay. :)
The villa is simply awesome exactly as in the pictures. Perfect for a quick getaway and immerse relaxation ambiance. Tim has been a great host. He provided us with street directory to cafe/restaurant, massage and he provided us with a phone (20000Rp top up) for our usage. However, beach access isnt too convienient as we need to hop onto a cab or get a driver. I=
In this case, Tim has a driver buddy; Nick, who is extremely pleasant and helpful. I would say Nick made it simple for us. He charged us for 400,000Rp for whole day trip around Seminyak, Kuta, Jinbaran and 600,000Rp for long distance trip to Ubud as our activites such as White water rafting and Mount Batur trekking was there. Nick is helpful in recommending cheap food around the area. He has a vast experience of 20 years. Hence getting Nick as our driver is a plus point!
Our bali experience is awesome thanks to Tim and his villa and also Nick our superman driver.
Tim is an amazing host, quick to respond to any issues, the villa is cozy, looks just like the picture but a little inaccessible. There's a few cafes/restaurants within walking distance (5-7 mins walk) but if you'll like to see more, you'll need to hop onto a cab. The taxi ride to Seminyak took about 15-20 mins with traffic and cost about 50,000/way. An ideal place to stay if you are in a group of 4 (optimized for cab sharing as well) as 2 of the bedroom share a bathroom. The pool is rather small, more for soaking rather than a swim. We have issues with the water pressure during our stay but that was solve rather quickly with a message to Tim.
