About This Listing
Villa Cocoon oberoi is located at 15 mins from kudeta beach and from the elegant and chic district of Oberoi where you will find the best shopping and restaurants of the island. The Villa is in a street extremely quiet and safe.
This villa is for six guests, eventually 7 persons. There is three king size beds in each 3 bedrooms. Three bathrooms (one with bathtub dowstairs & two with shower upstairs). There is an additional room for TV/Children/Work on the second floor with sofa also and a single bed ideal for one children or teenager. The villa is extremely calm. We ends the renovation in may 2014.
The villa is fully furnished (towels, sheets, ...) and also you can find all you need in the kitchen (stoven, gas cook top, blender, boiler, toaster, cutlery, plates, free water dispenser...)
The private villa has its own parking but you can walk easily in the area. You are at 15-20 minutes walk from the beach and the main street which is the nicest fooding/shopping place in Bali. This is great because Bali has many trafic jam so you don't need to rent a scooter or a car.

Quiet area of the villa is very precious and we would like our guest to respect our neighbourhood not being noisy during the evening.
The hosts Mely and Nicolas arranged for their excellent driver to collect us from the airport and waited for us at their villa (very late at night) so they could explain every thing we needed to know and answer any questions we might have. Particularly helpful at the beginning of our first trip to Bali. Thanks.
The villa itself is beautiful (even better than the pictures), big and well kitted out with all of the amenities you need and more. Located very close to a great part of Seminyak (10mins walk to the relatively luxurious Oberoi Road with it's fantastic range of shops, restaurants and bars), it's also very private and quiet (maybe a little difficult to find).
Very enjoyable time at the villa. Thanks Mely, Nicolas and driver Mady!
Nicolas was GREAT - He was there to meet me on arrival, and showed me around the place. The Villa was as good as described, and we really enjoyed our stay. The location is private, but also close to the main shopping and restaurant district. I can highly recommend this place to anyone.
Wir haben uns vom ersten Moment an sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Beschreibung der Villa war sehr genau und passend! Die Lage ist super, kurzer Gehweg zum Strand und in die "City"! Der Gastgeber hat uns einige Tipps gegeben und war für uns jederzeit bei Fragen erreichbar!
Villa was really nice and as described. Rooms are a good size and AC units are quite new. The lounge/reading area upstairs with the extra bed is also nice but can get warm as there is no AC. Since the main area is open, I guess you have to be very quiet or not even have conversations late at night as we used the pool a couple times late at night and had small talk, but the neighboring villa/hosts did knock on our door once to tell us to keep it down once, even though we did not feel like we were being loud. Regardless, all ended up okay as we complied and they did not return. The one thing that was an issue was the electricity, as we had a group of 5 stay at the villa and when both the three AC units were turned on, and someone went to shower, the switch did go off a few times. Someone would then need to flip the switch back on. We mentioned it to Nick and he said it is something that he will look into for the future, as it is currently set up to the maximum electricity allowed in Bali. At night it was fine for sleeping w/ just the AC units on.
The walk to the beach was actually really close, definitely a surfer's beach, but the walk to the main street Oberoi St. was a little farther, as you need to walk down a couple small alleys before getting to the villa (which is fine during the day but a small trek during night).
Nick was great in showing us around the villa as well as offering tips on what to do in the area in terms of restaurants, shops, and activities. The girl who came by to clean up and also cook breakfast was great and very nice as well. Overall quite a comfortable stay as the villa itself is quite nice but the electricity issues would make us think twice if there was a group of 5 or more traveling here. Thank you!
My boyfriend and I loved this villa! We stayed here for three nights. During the planning process, both Nicolas and Mely were quick to respond. Nicolas met us at the villa around 8pm when our flights arrived and showed us around. He was so kind as to have fresh fruit prepared and juice and to give us a few recommendations for some places nearby. I highly recommend eating at the Straw Hut, which is just down the street. It's a cute local restaurant with amazing eggs Benedict and other tasty things. We walked almost everywhere because we wanted to explore seminyak, you can easily get a taxi as well. We walked to La Plancha on the beach and if it was too hot during they day we just jumped in a cab for other places. The villa is at the end of a very quiet street, so it feels very private. The pool was wonderful and large compared to some other tiny villa pools I've seen. I loved the decor, the bed was comfy, and outdoor seating area was really nice. There is a little market like a 7-11 down the street so every night we would go buy some Bintangs and just hang by the pool- so relaxing!!!
I highly suggest using the driver Nicolas works with, Made, to arrange your airport pickup/drop off. Made is a lovely man, and we enjoyed his company so much we hired him to drive us for a day trip to Ubud as well. His English is very good and we were able to have pleasant, funny conversations :). He is also very honest and his rates are more than fair!
If you are thinking of staying here, just go ahead and book! You will enjoy your little "cocoon" inside of Bali :)
The Villa was absolutely amazing nick met us at the villa when we arrived which was around 10pm due to a delayed flight and he graciously showed us through and let us know all the ins and outs.
The villa is furnished very nicely and is comfortable for a good group of people, we were a group of three people so we all had a queen bed to our selves, awesome. The location of the villa is perfect with about a 5 min walk to the main street of Seminyak and and pretty much all the emanates Seminyak has to offer in a 20 min walk, taxies are only required if you are heading a little but further to places like W & potato head but walking is possible.
Well over all an awesome villa and i would definitely stay here again when i am back in Seminyak. especially if you like a bit of private space which hotels don't offer. :)
Firstly, Thank you so much for our stay in your villa. We had the best time! The position was amazing. Daily we walked very easily to all restaurants, shops, beach, supermarket and clubs and felt very safe. We were happy to see that everything we needed was in the villa. Power adaptors, hairdryer, phone, blender, ice water machine, DVD player, A/C and wifi. It felt just like home!! There were even directions on short cuts to take to get around. Nicholas was extremely friendly and very helpful and only a phone call away if we needed anything. I would have no hesitation in recommending this gorgeous villa to any of my friends or family if they were to visit Bali and I would definitely love to return and stay again! We love Bali!! xx
