The space

A short walk, along a narrow path takes you away from the sounds of cars and motorbikes to the tranquil compound of Villa Semua Suka, which means 'everybody likes'!
Villa Semua Suka is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 story villa with a large open plan dining, living and kitchen area. The gardens are lush and well manicured, with a swimming pool and Koi and lotus ponds.
Enjoy our traditional Balinese art, masks and puppets of very high quality, collected over the past 35 years and relax in our handmade teak wood furniture. You will find outdoor verandas in front of both the living room and both bedrooms with comfortable chairs and tables, and around the pool is a gazebo and lounging chairs. The pool is big enough to swim laps, lay on an air mattress, or just sit on the steps and stay cool.
You'll find WiFi internet access from all areas of the house and gardens, and a new flat-screen TV & DVD player in both bedrooms, plus an iPod player and a satellite hookup with movie, news and kids channels downstairs.
Your stay at VSS includes a gourmet breakfast featuring our own house-made bread and jams, yoghurt and granola, fresh fruit, choice of eggs, pancakes, and local specialties, plus great Balinese coffee! You'll be well taken care of by our staff led by Made' Pia, who can also prepare either a special Balinese or Indian feast for your family (you'll need to make special arrangements with her for this). Made' can help with arrangements for day trips, rafting, downhill biking, cooking classes, et al.
The downstairs bedroom is air-conditioned, has a king-size bed with mosquito net, two showers (indoor and outdoor), an outdoor fountain, and all conveniences.The upper bedroom is also air-conditioned, has two twin beds with mosquito nets, an shower, a small sofa, TV, two balconies (facing East and West) with armchairs, and a small table and chairs. There is also a Balinese daybed on the balcony.
There aren't any cars or motorbikes along our path, but you will find, within a 5 minute walk, numerous charming restaurants, an excellent yoga studio
massage spas and full size supermarket.
For larger parties there is a bungalow on the property just footsteps away from the main villa which is also available for rent. Please inquire about our special rate for renting both properties.
We feel Villa Semua Suka is a unique experience for those who want to experience the natural charm of Bali in a warm and nurturing setting.

We loved the quiet, the beautiful location away from busy streets and the immaculate tropical garden :)

We had a great time for a whole month at this place. The house is very beautiful - attention to detail everywhere, from the art, to the positioning of the shades, to the immaculate garden. The folks who help out are incredibly nice. They are there a lot, so if you are looking for complete privacy, this might not be the spot, but this is the Balinese experience with a housekeeper on hand always keen to be helpful. The location is quiet, but with plenty of places to eat nearby. A top spot.

We stayed at Villa Semua Suka for 5 days with our 18months old daughter. There were some negative things such as the path to arrive to the house from the main street was a bit tiring having to carry a 12kg kid and shopping and a pram etc... And a bit dangerous at some parts where the path was very narrow and one slip can cause a LOT of damage. I'm sure its part of the beauty of Ubud but was not the safest path with a toddler, its just that we're not used to this lifestyle. The second negative thing was the construction site right next door, we intended to stay at the house and chill and use the pool but had to make plans to go out all day and come back after 4, when the workers stopped. Which meant a more tiring stay than relaxing. But I'm sure those 2 points wouldnt be an issue for other people who go out all day and perhaps are more adventurous than ourselves

Some people love the walk along the path....and others don't. And in 6 years of living here, I've never heard of anyone falling off it. The walk is well documented in the description of our villa, so it shouldn't have come as a surprise. As for the construction, I'm sorry you were disturbed by that...but we have no control of our neighbor building.....and you're the only guest that has complained about it.

The villa is very well designed and maintained. Baliness style incorporated into Western and full modern amenities. Great daylighting and ventilation design. Me and my family were so relaxed during our stays. I enjoyed my morning walk and afternoon exploration in the rice paddy. My mom was so inspired by the art work curated by Barbara. Dad could not stop taking photos of this beautiful environment. My brother and sister enjoys the company of Milo so much and my brother finally stopped playing the phone :p. The breakfast is another highlight. Real bread, real jam and real juice. I highly recommend this place to couples and family.

We had a nice stay at the villa which was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The highlight of our stay was the food as the housekeeper prepared us a lovely Balinese dinner and made wonderful breakfasts each morning. The gardens and pool were very well kept and added to the lush Balinese atmosphere. One thing that should be noted: this home is not accessible by car. After about 10 steep steps, there is a roughly 10 minute walk before you reach the villa. The route to the villa is so narrow in some parts such that I could not easily maneuver my baby's stroller. Moreover, the narrow sections are raised about 10 feet or more above streams and hills. If I were traveling alone with my husband this would merely add to the adventure, however, I was with my 9 month old baby and parents. My 60 year old mom had a really challenging time navigating the path to the house and did not feel comfortable coming and going after dark. I would suggest that the host make note of the fact that the villa is not accessible by car in the ad so prospective guests can plan accordingly.

Thanks for your feedback. I will amend the listing description to include the fact that you cannot drive up to the Villa. Of course....that's part of its charm, although sometimes a slight inconvenience.

Barbara's emails were very friendly and welcoming as were the photos of her villa. The staff were really friendly and the food was delicious and plentiful. However, I wasn't pleased to discover such a difficult entrance to the property by way of very uneven, steep steps up from the road, a narrow, long and dark walkway a long way from the Bintang supermarket where the taxi drops you and your luggage! If mobility is even a slight issue this is a problem as the paths and steps are usually wet as well. Because of this we ended our stay early as we felt our holiday was compromised due to feeling unsafe on our nighlty return. If there are other guests in the adjoining apartment you may feel a lack of privacy as they share the pool and garden area and the staff service them from the main kitchen. We found we were disturbed by this and felt at times invaded by guests and constant coming and going of staff. Even the driver came into our bedroom upstairs unannounced! Staff seemed to wander all through the downstairs bedroom with out any warning. Although the villa is very comfortable and clean I would source a different location next time.

I can't say enough great things about Barbara & Henry's place at Villa Semua Suka. This was absolute (URL HIDDEN) exaggeration. I will never stay anywhere as lovely as this house & have the greatest memories of my entire trip from this accommodation. It is impeccably clean, elegantly designed in traditional Indonesian style & peaceful & safe. I'm determined that there is no better place to stay than here & I can't wait to be back. Pia is the greatest human being who is sociable, helpful & an amazing cook. There aren't enough words to describe this utopia. It is my retirement inspiration. Many thanks for opening your home to us. Can't wait to return!
