Superb place, blissful, peaceful, beautiful.
Hosts even provided a phone we could use locally. Great touch.
Hosts were very helpful and friendly.
The shimha villa had a really nice and homey feel. In addition ibu (what I know understands means mother) Julie provided great service and communication and allowed us to get in earlier than expected and the breakfast service in the morning was also of great quality. The downside is that the villa is on the property of a existing hotel, which means that you have to share the pool with everyone staying at the hotel as well instead of just the people in the other villa suite, which was what we expected. But all in all the room was really comfortable, there is a nice dockingsoundsystem with a variety of relaxing music on it, a very nice bed, and a nice television and multiple dvds are provided.
Paul and Julie were consummate hosts - so helpful with our late arrival and hints about the best local places and things to go, do and see. The place was very clean and decorated nicely. The view of the valley that you get from the balcony is spectacular!
Villa Shimha is everything you wish for, great location, attention to detail, Julie is very helpful and the staff is delightful as well. The driver Nyoman, was the best and super courteous. The villa is close enough to Ubud but if you want a bit of peace and quiet just stay home in the Villa and put on some smooth music and enjoy the ever changing view. We especially enjoyed the Campuhan walk first thing in the morning stopping off at Café Karsi for coffee to enjoy the view. We would stay here again in a flash.
I loved everything about my stay at Villa Shima. Julie was so easy to communicate with and made my trip so easy. The villa is just beautiful, with picturesque views of the Campuhan Ridge and the volcano. So tranquil and peaceful. It's a comfortable space and the pictures don't do it justice. It's about a 30 minute beautiful walk into town or you can easily catch a cab. I chose to walk everywhere. I did yoga every day at the Yoga House, which is in a beautiful setting up in the rice fields. Julie was gracious enough to take me on her bike the first day to show me where it was. I cannot say enough positive things about this beautiful retreat and Julie enough as a host. She was so accommodating to my schedule every day, checking to see when she could bring me breakfast ( which as a bonus always included fresh healthy foods from the market!) Thank you Julie for everything and mostly for providing a place where my mind, body and soul could be rejuvenated. I loved my weeklong stay with you and hope to be back within a few years time. Ubud is such a magical place and I highly recommend staying here (and I am super fussy about where I stay!) Thank you, THANK YOU!
We cannot fault our time at Villa Shimha, our plane was a few hours late, but Nyoman was still waiting like arranged at the airport to drive us to Ubud. Despite the fact that it was very late at night, he was the picture of patience and friendliness.
We met Julie the next day and she was sure to show us all that we needed to know about the Villa. She made herself available should we have any questions, but never intruded.
Host is very welcoming and friendly. Juli helped us arranged the transportation from our accommodation in uluwatu to ubud. Everything will seamless. The villa was very lovely & true to each description. View is perfect, we can hear the gushing river beneath & sunrise is in the direction of campuhan ridge. Breakfast is perfect.
We had so much things to do that we haven't properly tour Ubud yet. Would definitely like to return back.
