The area is residential neighborhood, and we just like to remind you not to be too loud after midnight, just to pay some respect to the neighbor. You can still turn on music / tv after midnight, just lower it down a bit. Smoking allowed on the living room area, not in the bedrooms.
The bedrooms were torn and dirty.
The first day back to our room we found that the bags had been opened and that the money had been stolen by two portfolios. We informed the owner that after talking with the staff made us return the money.
Last downside: there was official notice that the transfer from the airport to the house was free, but once you arrive in villa we were asked to pay the transfer. We contacted the owner who has reneged on what was communicated and told us that the transfer was paid.
We asked several times to meet the owner who never showed up and sent one of his collaborators.
The outdoor areas are in compliance with photos and cute.
Good location within the up and coming, posher version of Kuta/ Legian, in Seminyak, but pretty deep into the Jalan Umalas road, a must to rent bikes if staying longer than a few days. The host, Indie was mildly prompt with her responses, although does not seem to respond to emails in the Airbnb inbox, at least she was contactable via mobile phone. She was easy to speak with about arranging airport transfer, however, the driver she organized was late for about 30 min, without even a number for us to reach him on and my friend was stranded at the airport for a bit. The journey to the villa was rather long and unpleasant, but can't be helped because traffic in Bali is the norm, however to make it worse, the drive brought my friend to the wrong villa which was a couple of minutes from Dream Villa. The villa listing description was very accurate, although I wish the host had mentioned the bugs and dust in the outdoor bathrooms and rooms. It could have been cleaner, but the furniture and pool and rooms were perfect and cozy for a couple of nights getaway from the city. For our airport transfer back to Denpasar, we tried to arrange pickup again with Indie, with yet again another late arrival/ no show, we didn't bother to wait as we were going to be late for our flights, and were lucky enough to hitch a cab so deep into the recesses of Jalan Umalas, which is really a long (yet scenic with rice paddy fields, meadows, etc) walk from the main road, with establishments such as hotels, bars and restaurants, etc. Overall, a good place to stay for a group of 4-6, and for house parties away from the usual hustle and bustle in the central areas, Kuta, etc. But just be ready to arrange your own airport transfer as it is actually not too expensive and a mere 15-20 minute drive, if traffic allows.
The villa was great. Very spacious with great private swimming pool. We loved the location as well in Umalas, very quite, surrounded with paddy field, yet isnt far from the busy area. The villa has much more potential that what it already is. A bit of re-touch here and there it'll then be perfect. Overall, great stay!
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
