Other Things to Note
With development progressing at a very fast pace Villa Emma is one of the few accommodation options in the heart of Seminyak where you can enjoy a truly authentic tropical Bali accommodation experience.
Villa Emma is our home and while we have some pretty good times here it's definitely not a late night party house!. We don't have any hard fast rules other than our guests are respectful to us and our staff. Staying in the Garden Villa allow's you to come and go as you like without entering the main house ensuring privacy for our guests however you are welcome to use the facilities of the main house and also share our fabulous bale area.
Excellent better than expected. Villa is absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait to go back. Debbie is delightful. Location is perfect; walk to Eat Street and beach.
Debbie was very kind and was very helpful with all of our requests. I had a wonderful stay at Villa Emma and strongly recommend it to my friends who are heading to Bali.
We enjoyed our 4 night stay at Debbie's home and were well looked after by Ngurah and his team.
Debbie was very quick in answering our e mail enquiries about local restaurants and Ngurah helped us to book them after we arrived.
The villa is a green haven in busy Seminyak (which means you need mosquito spray particularly for your feet - Debbie had provided room spray)
Thanks to all at Villa Emma is was great value for money.

We can absolutely reccomend staying at Debbieś :)
Gosh we miss villa emma already. The villa was great, clean, we really loved the dim light at our room and of course the swimming pool (didnt get the chance to ask you was it 3m deep? Amazing pool). Villa emma is located at the heart of the busy seminyak, little did we realize that even though it's near ths restaurant road and whatnots, but the villa itself was very quite. We didnt get the chance to spend much time with Debbie, but she is lady with the biggest heart and very welcoming. Highly recommeded! :)
This place was really lovely. We enjoyed the location, about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach, along the way lots of little shops and spas. There is a hotel a little farther down the beach with a restaurant called Breeze. It's a little fancier than most. Excellent service and the best meal we have possibly ever had. For after dinner drinks and music, we recommend KuTeTa, just a couple doors down, with a great view of the ocean. The accommodation is a little more lived in and not quite as sharp as in the pictures, but still very nice. The room itself does not lock, but there is a safe. The air conditioning works well. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and we enjoyed the mosquito net above the bed. The fridge in the room with cold beer was a plus. Finally, the staff was very helpful. We saw Debbie in the mornings, she is friendly and happy to make suggestions. We were picked up at the airport for less than $25, and enjoyed having a driver for the day for about $50, who was happy to take us where ever we wanted to go, including Ubud and Uluwatu. We would stay here again if we were to return to the Seminyak area. Thank you.

About the Host, Debbie
I live in Bali with my daughter who is going to international school here. We have been coming backwards and forwards to Bali since she was 2 years old and now we are based here we love the idea of likeminded travellers enjoying our Darwin apartment and our home in Bali!
We love living here in Seminyak for it's thriving restaurant scene, great beaches and endless activities. I have a small art gallery close to my villa in Bali featuring original fine art by a variety of local and international artists and I love to invite my guests to come and enjoy a glass of wine with me and take in the current exhibition.
We return home to Darwin regularly throughout the year to catch up with friends, family and attend to home turf matters and when we do we are reminded of just how beautiful a city Darwin is..
We really do have the best of both worlds!
Great cheap eats, especially good at lunch time. Located right next door to our gallery!Bali 80361
