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.
The villa was more beautiful than the pictures. It was maintained very well and was in a great location. It was easily within walking distance to the beach and to all the shops, restaurants, etc in Seminyak. The villa was in a quiet and safe area that has security 24/7.
The villa staff, Ketut and Nyoman, made our stay at the villa especially memorable. They are very hospitable and helped make our vacation in Bali a great one. Ketut drove us the island to see different sites and was an excellent tour guide and driver. Nyoman was so kind and welcoming. She made a wonderful breakfast for us each morning and kept the villa looking wonderful. She was also very helpful in giving us recommendations on sites to see or places to eat during our time in Seminyak.
I would highly recommend this villa for your stay in Bali!
The villa was well kept and it was in a very good location in Seminyak, walking distance to a lot of shops, restaurants and bars. It was also safe with security guards manning the villa's compound 24-hours a day.
What we really enjoyed is the hospitality of the couple, Ketut and Nyoman. We hired Ketut as our driver during our 3 day stay and he took us to different places around Bali and allowing us to enjoy different things in the island. Nyoman was there every morning to cook us breakfast and ensure that the villa was clean, the towels changed... always with a smile.
I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants to enjoy Balinese hospitality.
A quiet villa within walking distance to beach and shops. Plenty of room for 3 couples if needed. Amenities are basic but adequate. Breakfast was simple but Nyoman was willing to cook added extras from local supermarket. Great to have the Straw Hut at end of lane for easy lunches or swim. A relaxing break.
It is really great place for us to spend a 4-day trip. Convenient transportation but narrow road.

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.
