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.
The place was exactly what we were looking for. Perfect location, our own private room separated and ensuit detached from the main part of the villa right by the pool. The manager of the villa organised a scooter for us to rent and Debbie had great insight into the local area of we had any questions. Breakfast in the morning was also quite good. I'd definitely recommend to a couple who want to be near local restaurants, cafes and great shopping.
We had such a lovely stay at Debbies villa. The staff were so lovely and accomadating and the breakfast was yummy! Very private and in a good location would recommend :)
Our stay with Debbie was amazing! Her lovely garden villa was everything that we were looking for and more. The location is great - along Jalan Drupadi - with many dining options just down the street, shopping on the next and massage just opposite. We could easily walk to the beach and the city centre - which we did everyday. Debbie was an amazing host during our stay, orientating us on our first day and giving us recommendations on where we could go and what to do. On the hot afternoons, we found ourselves hiding in the comfort of the villa going through her collection of DVDs before heading out in the evening for shopping and dinner. This trip was all about taking a step back to enjoy the little and spontaneous things which worked out perfectly. This was my first visit to Seminyak and I am sure to be back again!
Villa Emma was an amazing home base for a week in Seminyak. Debbie and everyone at the house made us feel incredibly welcome from the start. We stayed in a little cottage house next to the beautiful pool - great bed, great bathroom, amazing breakfast each morning, solid wifi and tv with dvd player. It's in a great location, fifteen minute walk to the beach, ten minute walk to some of the best shopping and dining in Seminyak, tucked off the main drag, but super easy to catch a cab and be anywhere in no time. If you're up for a beach stroll, you can be at any of the big clubs in 20-25min as well: Cocoon, Ku De Ta, Potato Head. Overall, couldn't have asked for anything else.
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.

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!
