The villa was beautiful. We enjoyed our stay a lot. Nyoman, the caretaker was amazing and very helpful.
Staying at Quiet Villa in Seminyak has been my best Air BnB experience. We got to meet Anama the day we arrived and were made to feel extremely welcome by Anama and her housekeeper Nyoman and Ketut throughout our stay. It was like being Home away from home.
A great location right 5 Mins away from Jalan Oberoi and the beach still her place was quiet. The house was immaculately clean and prepared for us.
I would again want to Thank Anama for having us and Nyoman for taking such good care of us and serving us Breakfast which was beautifully presented, fresh and ample.
Check in and Check out times were super flexible! We were spared of not having to carry our luggage around the city on our last day :)
Overall great experience. Would certainly return next time I visit Seminyak.
We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in de prachtige villa van Anama. Het strand ligt op een minuut of 5 lopen en ook Jalan Kaya Ayu is prima aan te lopen (kijk wel even op Google Maps voor de kortste weg door de vele smalle steegjes).
De villa is prachtig ingericht, met heerlijke bedden en goed en luxe sanitair. Nyoman, de huishoudster, maakt op verzoek ontbijt en kan je met al je vragen helpen.
Voor ons een perfecte afsluiting van onze vakantie op Bali.
Great experience staying here. Perfect host and great staff made it a memorable few days!
Although Anama was not there in person to receive us, she had made all pickup arrangements and the housekeeper Nyoman welcomed us and showed us around and helped us with our luggage to the room upstairs. Nyoman was great, seeing to our breakfast and other needs daily. Ketut, the driver was very friendly and an excellent guide to local restaurants, shops, etc. The villa was exactly as was pictured on the listing, beds were comfy and clean. Only drawback was on our first 2 days there was a power outage which lasted several hours. As the villa had no generator it was a bit warm as it was a very warm and humid time of year. The plunge pool cooled us down and thankfully by the time the rest of our group arrived on day 2 power had resumed and there were no more outages rest of the trip. On the whole, it was a very pleasant place to stay, close enough to everything and far away enough from the hustle and bustle. Villa Krisna # 9 (as it is known locally to cabbies) is definitely on my come back list.
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.

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.
