Leuke villa, mooi ingericht en lekker licht en open. De hulp Nyoman was heel behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Ze maakte elke dag alles lekker schoon en netjes. Prima locatie, je zit vlak bij Ku De Ta en drukke winkelstraten. Echt een aanrader!
This was my first trip to Bali and I had the honour of organizing this trip on behalf of my 6 girlfriends from secondary school. This was our first reunion in 10 years. When I contacted Anama, she was very confident that this villa would suit our needs, based on what I had listed to her. And it did. The place is stunning, well kept and beautiful. Unfortunately we didnt get a chance to meet Anama but her staff are true gems. Nyoman (housekeeper) and Ketut (driver) are so hospitable and gracious.
I booked this villa way back in April and had several questions to Anama in the months and days leading to our reunion. Anama answered each and every question with patience and clarity. It was a pleasure interacting with her. Her staff are wonderful. Since we were arriving from 6 locations, airport transfers had to be organised for each visitor at various times, which Anama coordinated for me and Ketut executed so willingly.
We were at the villa from August 18-24. The villa is placed very close to the beach and has a restaurant just at the beginning of the lane for those days, when one feels lazy to walk further down for a meal. The villa is clean and well kept. Nyoman orgainzed breakfast for us each morning and Ketut drove us to Kuta for a day of shopping and a bit of sightseeing.
Overall we were very satisfied with our experience at this villa and we will surely recommend this one to anyone looking for a villa in Seminyak.
Anama's home is lovely. Very spacious, outside showers, refreshing pool and great location to the beach and downtown Seminyak. But the true gems of the property are Nyoman and Katut. Katut, a driver, met us at the airport and took care of us throughout our stay - driving us all around! Nyoman is the caretaker for the home, greeted us with fresh juice and an immaculately clean house. She helped us get scooters to take around town, gave recommendations on places to go and really just felt like a great big welcome from Bali to us.
We stayed in the Villa 4-14 August 2015 and it was fabulous. We really enjoyed the company of Nyoman and Ketut who went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Nyoman runs the Villa and Ketut took us to Ubud for the day at a very reasonable price - we though this was really convenient and they are both beautiful people and very trustworthy.
The Villa is situated in Seminyak and close to all amenities as well as the beach.
The only thing my husband and I were not quite sure of was why there was so little hot water in the bathroom upstairs, our showers were on the tepid side. However, the bedroom downstairs had an abundance of hot water - I am quite sure this is easily rectified.
Thank you to the owner who allowed us to stay and not pay for the day that we checked out late to fly back to Australia, this was a God send.
We will be back, thank you.
What a fabulous villa! Perfect for our family of 7. Nyoman was just gorgeous and so helpful, kind and nothing too much trouble. Ketut (driver) was great too helping arrange a bike trip to kintamani and collecting us much later than excpected to take us to the airport when our flight was delayed.. The villa is really comfortable, in a handy spot to walk 5 mins to the beach or seminyak square. Tranquil and quiet in the villa and we felt very secure there. Everything clean. I would highly recommend this villa and hope to rebook sometime again soon :)
Thanks Anaman for responding quickly to our queries and to Nyoman for her great hospitality and food! Villa was peaceful and serene. It is near Seminyak though the road leading down is quite narrow to walk, so best to get a cab!
J'ai beaucoup la semaine passée dans la villa d'Anama. Extrêmement bien située a 5 minutes de la mer et deux pas d'Oberoi, un havre de paix au coeur de Seminyak. L'accueil de Ketut et la présence quotidienne de Nyoman sont très appréciables. La maison à un charme fou. Parfait.

About the Host, Anama
I was born and raised in Germany,and have lived in the USA since 1986.
Since 1990 I have been the owner of a Design and Clothing Company ,which has its manufacturing operation in Bali and its distribution in the USA.
13 years ago I designed and built a beautiful villa close to the famous sunset beach in Bali, Seminyak .
It used to be surrounded by nothing but rice fields back then . Now it is surrounded by beautiful small boutique hotels and other private villas,but nevertheless it has kept its own unique charm.
Seven years ago I have built another compound of three houses and despite all the building boom of the last few years ,I can still enjoy the rice fields around me in this lovely local community,just north of Seminyak. And so can the airbnb guests who are staying here.
