Hallo, ich habe die Villa für 32 Tage für unsere Flitterwochen in Bali gemietet gehabt. Es gabst positive Aspekte aber leider mehr negative Punkte, was uns gestört haben.
- Pool ist schön und hat eine optimale Größe
- Mitarbeiter und Nachbarn waren nett
- Lage ist ruhig
- die Vermieterin ist unzuverlässig und antwortet sehr spät auf Nachrichten
- wir wurden nicht wie geplant von Flughafen abgeholt und mussten uns selber ein Taxi organisieren, weil Vermieterin unsern Ankunft Datum und Zeit vergessen hatte.
- wir hatten per Mail gebeten gehabt, die Villa vorzubereiten ( reinigen und bezüglich unser Flitterwochen bisschen zu dekorieren) was leider nicht durchgeführt wurde
- Haus ist schön, aber ungepflegt
- im Gästezimmer und Bad ist es feucht und es riecht unangenehm
- Im Gästezimmer an der Decke fällt das Putz an machen Stellen ab
- Klimaanlage im Gästezimmer funktioniert nicht immer, obwohl Mechaniker da waren
- Internet ist sehr schwach und funktioniert auch nicht immer
- einmal funktionierte das Pool nicht aber wurde schnell repariert
- es gabs Wasserausfälle
- die letzten 2 Wochen gabs viel Lärm wegen den Bauarbeitern
- die Bauarbeiter auf dem Nachbargrundstück saßen auf dem Mauer und konnten zu uns in Bad ( offener Badbereich) reinschauen! Nach unsere Beschwerde an den Mitarbeitern hatte sich da Problem erledigt
- wir wollten gerne die Villa noch mal für weitere 7 Tage verlängern ( vor der Buchung stand unser Rückflugtermin nicht fest deshalb), aber es wurde ein viel höherer Preis verlangt als der täglicher Tagesmiete wofür wir gebucht hatten.
- Dream Villa befindet sich eher in Kerobokan und nicht Seminyak
Es hätte alles besser sein können!
Overall we enjoyed the stay at the Dream Villa because the environment is very beautiful and peaceful. However, we would probably try something different next time.
The general theme of our stay was poor maintenance of the villa but every single time Indie came thru with her staff and things were fixed. But the reality is that one or two things can go wrong and that's expected but a few too many mishaps happened. The airport pick up (double market price of 20USD) was over an hour late; not clear why. The villa had not been cleaned before we arrived (but it was nice that the maid subsequently returned EVERY DAY). Both air conditioners had serious maintenance issues. One needed its freon recharged (host should have done this as preventive maintenance) and both of them had faulty controls leaving one stuck on and one stuck off for days. The pool turned green and the maintenance guy struggled for a couple days to restore it to its initial beauty. The cooking gas tank ran out (another thing that the host should have addressed preventively, not reactively).
Overall the space was adequate for us, the host was responsive and the staff was very friendly. The kitchen and its supplies is very basic and the villa could probably use a new fridge. The second bedroom and bath are much more basic then the master bedroom, so if you have two couples this major difference is something to keep in mind.
First and foremost, the villa is everything we (Chris and I) have hoped. It is exactly like it is in the pictures.
There was one set back with the villa when we arrived about the state of a wall in the guest room but it was nothing major and we didn't mind it. Other than that.. Villa was beautiful and had everything we needed. Close to a few local cafes which was ideal and was very easy to get a hold of taxis from the villa from taxi booking. Villa was very quiet and relaxing and would always be clean and tidy after we get back from a long day out.
Would stay here again in a heart beat, beautiful beautiful location.
Thank you, indie and Danny for having such a wonderful place! Will definitely come back!
My sister is pregnant,she thought it's too far to the city centre ,so we booked 3days but stayed just one day.I think the house is very nice and so funny around,I will come back when next time
Villa is visually appealing as per the photos. Pool was the highlight for us as it was nice and warm and clean. The villa is good if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Seminyak. You definitely need a bike to get around. The villa is seriously lacking in even basic necessities such as matches for mosquito coils and a bath plug. Indie did allow us to have a late check out as compensation for this. Doors need to be locked to stay closed so not really appropriate to have children in 2nd bedroom.
The manager Delfin was very helpful and friendly and aimed to please.
Leading up to the stay at the villa, Ms. Indie was helpful and always open to our questions. Replies came promptly and she was always efficient and professional. However, we had NO ONE waiting for us the villa upon our arrival.
The villa was exactly like what we saw in the pictures, and it was located in a quiet street in the Umalas area – which was close by to the areas of Seminyak and Kerobokan.
The best part about the villa will have to be the fantastic pool as it was spacious and had sunlight all day long!
Finally, the most critical issue with this villa is this: IF YOU DO NOT LIKE TO TAKE SHOWERS, THEN THIS PLACE IS PERFECT FOR YOU.
After our first night, we pretty much had water issues daily and nightly. In the mornings, 2 of us would take showers, and then there’d be no more water left to do anything. Ms. Indie wasn’t in town, so we were referred to her assistant, Mr. Delvin. He was continuously apologetic and blamed everything – the pump, the long Balinese summer, a small water tank, and even at one point even said that we shouldn’t be wasting water.
But the final straw came one night when all of us had been out the whole day – we didn’t even take showers in the morning because we were going to the beach – and when we returned late at night to take a shower before bed, there was NOT A SINGLE DROP OF WATER from the showers.
On some nights, we tried taking showers using the bidet, washing our hair in the sink, and ended up frustrated. Halfway through our stay, Delvin told us that we could use the bathroom in the next door villa. That of course solved our problem. However, we paid for a villa with full facilities, and bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, not a shared facility.
After numerous complaints over the phone to Delvin, on our last night, he finally offered us a complimentary transfer to the airport. He had reminded us that we needed to check out by noon the next day since there was another guest arriving.
But the cleaner magically showed up at 10am! When we were still having breakfast, lounging in the pool and doing our last minute packing. She started changing the bedsheets, and sweeping up a storm of dust around the villa. We honestly felt like this was our gracious hosts’ way of chasing us out of the villa.
In all honesty, it was a beautiful villa. We loved it! But if you like what you see in the pictures, please do consider the water issue. Get in touch with Ms. Indie and have her GUARANTEE that there will be water every day and night. Squatting to shower with a bidet and washing hairs in the sink is definitely not what we paid for.
Ok to start with the photos are very accurate. The Villa looks beautiful and is done up really well with bright cushions and bean bags.
Indie arranged a cab to pick us up from the airport and Delvin the manager was there to greet us (even though it was a late check-in).
The villa is a little away from most places so you would require a cab to get you anywhere ( this is common in Bali we hired a cab for the day for all the days we were there) The villa is a little difficult to find for the cabs as there is no sign board which says "Dream Villa". We had to get the staff to help out directing the cabs to our place.
Indie organized breakfast for us for all the days and Madhe (the cook/housekeeper) was very helpful and made a simple breakfast for all the days we were there. Also the pool was cleaned daily so we could go for a swim everyday.
We had a problem with water (the pump stopped working) and didn't have water for one night. We got in touch with Delvin and he managed to get it repaired the next day. It was slightly painful having to bathe in the next villa for a day.
Overall the villa was fantastic and would highly recommend it but keep in mind you need a cab/bike to get out of the Villa.
