Fantastic stay - Absolutely Recommend!
Mark and Kerry's Villa was exactly like the images - beautiful; it was well maintained, clean and luxuriously furnished. A fantastic choice for a large family or 3 couples. The garden is a nice calm retreat from the hustle and bustle of Bali and there are 3 turtles which proved entertaining! There is a great spot on the 3rd floor for which to enjoy your in-home massages with a tranquil view of the Bali countryside.
Rani the housekeeper was lovely and was very helpful with the day to day living arrangements, salon bookings, wifi and with organising our laundry etc. Rani lives close to the villa and speaks good English which is a big plus when new to Bali.
We hired a driver for the entire stay which is recommended. The villa is located 15mins from Uluwatu and about 45mins from Seminyak in average traffic conditions. A couple of small supermarkets are within 15mins by car for any essentials.
Mark was very responsive throughout the booking process and very obliging to assist us with all the information we needed to enjoy our stay whether it be regarding transport, massages, salon, etc. Thank you for a memorable stay.
This Villa could not have been any more perfect! From the location to the absolutely stunning attention to detail by Rani...our every need was filled exquisitely. The Villa was immaculate upon our arrival, and exactly as described on AirBnB. Mark helped us arrange for 2 scooters upon arrival, and Rani helped us arrange for transport nightly so that we could catch the perfect Bali sunset at some of the most wonderful restaurants that are nearby. We also indulged in the "in home" massage on the 3rd floor on our last day in Bali. The home was perfect, the pool was perfect, and Rani was an absolute pleasure. Please do yourself a favor, and book this Villa for your upcoming trip to Bali. You will not be disappointed :)
Our stay at Mark's villa was very relaxing. It is more home than villa, the garden was beautiful and Rani (the maid) was a lovely person and very accommodating. A few minor issues with the air conditioning in the main living area were attended to within a day or two. Ungasan is a little out of the way which is peaceful but transport is recommended. All in all a very comfortable and enjoyable experience for our family.
It was a great experience in Bali, stay at this villa made my vacation an unforgettable one. More than I expect! The villa and the surrounding gardens are extremely well maintained. The house is in a quiet area south of Kuta, which is excellent for families. Services and procedures were well thought out and very professional. The villa comes equipped with everything needed for comfort even a selection of DVDs and CDs. I would definitely come back and recommend to others.
Can't say enough about this place! First, you feel like a celebrity - this place is MAGICAL! The gardens are amazing and private, the pool area is fantastic and the outside seating area great for entertaining and family time. The bedrooms were large and comfortable for our family of 6. Their staff were AMAZING! Rani was probably the kindest soul we have ever met and honestly added to our experience in this beautiful villa. Although its not within walking distance, it is a super quick drive the grocery stores, beach, warungs. Mark, the host, was very quick at communicating. Highly recommend!
What a gorgeous place to stay. The villa and gardens are beautiful. Rani, the housekeeper took such good care of us. In a quiet neighbourhood but easy to get around with the aid of a driver. Mark organised our driver asta, who took us everywhere we wanted to go. Perfect for our family getaway as everyone had their own space.
In a word, the house is AWESOME! Mark and Kerry were so helpful. The staff are wonderful. You'll love having breakfast in the garden and feeding the pet turtles. The money's that, occasionally frequent the fence are a special treat too.
The house is totally set up and Rani is very accommodating. And, we cannot say enough about how great Kadek is, a great sense of humor and network...use them instead of taxis.
