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.
I could not have asked for a better host for my families first time in Bali. I booked the villa based on location and reviews and was not disappointed. Having missed out on this trip I was nervous about sending the family alone but Debbie did everything she could to make them feel at home. They had an amazing time and loved staying there. Every question and request I had was answered promptly and I had no concerns about their time in Kuta. Thanks again for you help! Could not have asked for a better host.
Debbie has such a fantastic place and very helpful with directions and local advise. It's very close to shops and short walk to the beach as well! We really enjoyed the relaxed feel to the place, large very well air conditioned room and delicious breakfast service.
As an extra bonus, the days we were there coconuts were being picked from the trees so we got a fresh one each whilst by the pool!
We will definitely book again :-)
It was a wonderful secret garden. Perfect and private.
Debbie and staff were very welcoming upon our arrival. Breakfast was fantastic each morning cooked by her staff. She hired a driver for us to tour the island on our request as we had limited time in Bali and wanted to see as much as possible. The driver Bagus was simply awesome. His English was great and he was super easy-going. The location is fairly close to Oberoi street. Though we always decided to take a taxi at night because the street to Villa Emma is pretty narrow. The bed was very comfortable in the garden villa and I greatly appreciated the mosquito net and supplied if sprays, as the bugs are ever-present around the villa (and really all of Bali). I didn't test out the pool, but my husband liked it. Comparing in person scale to the pictures online, the Villa was much more compact, but it didn't make a difference in overall satisfaction.
A delightful oasis in the midst of the exciting and busy Seminyak area.
Once you walk through the wooden doors at the entrance to Villa Emma you are in your own private piece of Paradise. Debbie, her daughter Riley and staff, Nugrah, Kadek and Tian were attentive to our needs while at the same time remaining unobtrusive. Our daily breakfast was a battle between Tian, the Queen of Pancakes / Crepes and Kadek, the Omelette King. Both are WINNERS!! Walk a couple of hundred metres to Kilo Restaurant, take the Gang / Laneway that runs alongside it, turn right into Gang Lebah and you're on Eat Street, where you will have a fantastic array of dining and shopping alternatives open to you. We are 25 year veterans of Bali holidays and Villa Emma is certainly an economical stay option that we would use again. Terima Kasih Debbie and Team at Villa Emma, see you again in Bali. Judy & Warren Delbridge.
What a fantastic oasis Debbie's property is from the pace of Seminyak! The home is immaculate and so tastefully decorated. We felt extremely welcome by Debbie and her whole staff from the minute we walked through the gate. Debbie and her team gave fantastic tips for things to do/places to eat and even helped orchestrate a couple excursions and scooter rentals. The beach is a quick 10 min walk but there are all sorts of shops and restaurants within just a couple minutes (make sure to try the delicious Kendi Kuning restaurant less than 1 min away)! And there was nothing more refreshing than taking a dip in the super clean pool after a long day of beaching or exploring. Thank you for an awesome time, Debbie!
Debbie's place is truly a charm. Quietly tucked away in a homely bubble and within walking distance to fantastic restaurants and shops. The villa was a welcome retreat to relax and recharge. Breakfast was great and homely. Would definitely stay again.

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!
