About This Listing
Brand new villa (march 2014) 2 bd AC, 2 bathrooms, fully equipped with wifi, private pool, staff for daily cleaning, tv, dvd, parking, safety box, garden, gazebo...
Located on the road to Balangan beach.
The Villa was exactly what we expected. Two double bedrooms with really cool outdoor ensuite, a common area including kitchen with everything you you need and a good sized private pool and really fast wifi.
Pande who works for Nicholas showed us to the villa and hooked us up with mopeds. He was very helpful and the villa comes with a list of local eateries and things to do. Finn beach club is nearby which is worth a visit.
When my friends and I arrived at the Villa we were blown away, it was beautiful, just like you see in the pictures! Everything was brand new and there was a lady there making us a welcome drink! However there seemed to be no electricity and the running water was off and on, we left to go for lunch while Putu, the Villa manager, fixed things. However when we returned still not electricity or water, so we called Putu, he was quick to reply and sent someone around to fix things. However still no luck, so Putu arranged transport and moved us to another Villa. It was just around the corner from this one and was alot bigger and even nicer, so we were very very happy! Every morning a lady would come around to clean the Villa and make pancakes for us all, which was great! The Villa we stayed in was 5*, everything was high quality, large pool, fast wifi, very clean and comfortable. Putu was very helpful and quick to respond to all of our calls, he even picked us up from our previous hotel. Nicolas, (the Villa owner I believe) is also very professional, polite and responds to all messages very fast. There is also a great cafe which you can walk to, just around the corner, called Kaffine. Great food, coffee and service, we were regulars there by the end of our stay! The only thing I would say is that the location is a little out of the way, on google maps it appears you can walk to Balangan beach but you cannot. You need to get a taxi or scooter everywhere apart from one or two cafe's and local shops, but Kaffine can arrange transport for you, so not a huge issue. Oh and always take a map (preferably load up your location on google maps before you leave the villa) and address for the villa and/ or Kaffine as taxi drivers don't always know where you mean, so you have to direct them a little. All in all my friends and I had an excellent stay here and would definitely stay again, it was a real steal for the price! Thanks Nicolas/Putu!
We had a really nice stay at this lovely villa! Everything looked just like in the pictures and was very clean an well maintained. We enjoyed the outside-style living room as well as the refreshing pool. The beach an several restaurants were just a short scooter-ride away. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again and can just recommend it!
I would recommend arranging a pick up with Nicolas (which was very easy) as the local taxi drivers don't know the place yet.
