Other Things to Note
Unique in its kind! Three authentic Balinese villas in lush tropical garden with a large swimming pool. We have a fence, which can be installed at your request, to protect your kids from the pool. We have 2 baby beds too.
Overall the accommodation was amazing! Staying there, I felt like I was in my own little world escaping from reality amongst a massive rainforest. The hammocks are the most comfy hammocks I've ever slept in! The place was HUGE!! Really great value for money and just a gorgeous place! I would definitely recommend this to my friends.
Lovely serene spot amid the craziness that is busy Bali. Bastian made good on his promise to install a pool fence which made looking after my active toddler much easier. We loved the ambiance of the place and apart from some minor plumbing issues we were very happy there
Our stay at Villa Kelapa was great. The Villa is build in a classic Balinese style and has a nice atmosphere. The three separate villas were great, and everybody has there own privacy. All villas were luxurious and well maintained. The resort is in a wonderful garden and is private domain. The large garden has coconut trees and tropical plants and a great pool. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There is security day and night. The food they cook is very good! Location is very central and on walking distance to the center of Seminyak. Restaurant and shops are close by. Because of the central location, you do hear some noise in the master bathroom, but bedrooms, living and garden are quiet and you live in paradise here! I sure will come again and recommend this perfect place to all my friends and relatives.
I love the villa and the people. The villa is very beautiful and amazing. We have a good time in the pool. All of staff are very nice and work well. The bedrooms are clean and cool.They always supply coffee and tea in time. They also arranged wonderful dinner for us. Thanks again for their services. My friends said to me that choosing villa kelapa is the most sensible decision.
We had a pleasant staat Bali Villa Kelapa.
We espacially enjoyed the delicious Indonesian dood, prepared by the private cook Pulu. It was the best Indonesian food we did find on Bali.
There was Some traffic noise in the morning in the master bathroom, but the there bedrooms and the living were very quiëtist, as was the garden. We had a good sleep on the perfect and romantic bed.
The staf was very friendly and helpfull and made our stay so nice.
All together, we had a very pleasant stay and enjoyed the calm atmosphere of wonderful Villa Kelapa with iTS beautiful tropical garden, great skimming pool and the friendly staff.
We sure will recommend Villa Kelapa to all our friends and relaties.

Be CAREFUL when booking this villa if you are looking for a peaceful vacation. It is VERY noisy due to its location on a busy main road. Speeding vehicles beeping horns from dusk till dawn. I am a heavy sleeper normally but the noise is impossible to sleep through.
The host seems very loyal to his staff, which having spent 8 days there seems very misplaced. The house is not clean, its cleaned every day apart from Sunday but little more than make the beds and a general tidy up. Dead mosquito's and other insects lay unswept on the floor etc. I was very concerned about the security given that we had two small children sleeping in a detached building. However despite Bastiaan's reasurances the "security" guard was asleep every night before my wife and I went to bed, although he told me he didn't sleep at night only during the day. In the information I received after I made the booking I read that babysitting was available. However when we enquired with the housekeeper the response was limited to "how much will you pay". Not what you want to hear when considering leaving your children for a few hours with someone you don't know. We were also told that we could have dinner cooked for us in the villa in the evening, but the first (and the last) time we asked for this we were told that it was not possible. We packed lightly as we were informed that a daily washing service was available, which resulted in several items being destroyed beyond belief by some kind of yellow dye. We didn't find this out until we unpacked at home, but when we reported it to Bastiaan we were accused of concocting the story as his staff claimed that the items that I photographed and sent to him had never been in the villa!. So apparently they all have photographic memories. This accusation was replaced by us apparently not having showered correctly and the dye was the sun protection we had been wearing prior to our shower. Preposterous!
The best part of the villa is the pool, lovely temperature and a great size. We very much enjoyed our morning swim followed by a pleasant, although very repetitive breakfast outside.
I have to single out one of the staff who was always very friendly and always helpful. His name is Carlos. Bastiaan should have Carlos train the staff as they didn't seem any where near as pleased to be there as he did. In fact one of the staff tried to explain to me how unhappy they were the with they way they were paid but I couldn't really understand them. I certainly got the feeling that they were not a happy group, the happiest they looked was when I tipped them.
In summary I would not recommend it to other families with young children or people that are looking for total peace and quite.
DO NOT TAKE THIS REVIEW SERIOUS. EXTORSION ! First of all sorry to hear you were not happy. Normally the villa is very clean as other guest confirm. Security is high as we are also protected by military police You did not notice i suppose. Most guests are very happy with my friendly Balinese staf.... There is some noice indeed from the street but most guests are not so sensitive as you are. My staff did complain you did not pay a normal fee for the babysitting and did take the service for granted There was a very small tip indeed.
There was an incident on the way back with your clothes in your suitcase. When you packed your clothes here there was not a problem. You did discover the problem at home. First you blamed it on our washing machine. When i found out they had not been in the washmachine at all, you still did want me to pay $500. When i did refuse you did warn me you will write a bad review and that is what all people are reading now. Spilling your frustration on the web. Well...........
The villa is absolutely gorgeous & we had a wonderful stay. Made & the rest of the staff where so nice and accommodating. Would definitely recommend & want to return soon. Thanks!

About the Host, Bastiaan
I am a medical doctor in Amsterdam and for many years I traveled in the Far East, for fun and business. At one of this trips, i was on a business conference in Bali, an instant love came over me, for this Island and inhabitants. And now I can share this feeling with you in my enchanting villa "VILLA KELAPA". The Balinese people, design, religion and culture are extremely unique, in every detail. I hope you appreciate my Balinese staff as much as I do, and I wish you to feel at home !
If you have any wishes to make your stay comfortable and careless, let me know, and I will take care, and my English spoken staff will also be happy to have you as my special guest, so my home is your home.
To inform you when you are traveling in Europe, I also can recommend you the beautiful city of Amsterdam, Holland .
I am the host of Amsterdam Canal Apartments as well, and there is the same welcoming atmosphere in the two apartments (overlooking the canals) as in my villa, VILLA KELAPA, Bali.
