Overall we had a fantastic stay although the house really does need some work to tidy it up. Some of the issues we noticed were:
* lawn not mowed
* some boards on the decking were rotting and needed replacement
* toaster was so slow it took about 10 min to lightly toast
* curtains in bedroom not long enough to properly cover windows
* stereo system wasn't great- could not use iPod or iphone for music
* we couldn't sit on the couch or lounge seats as we got really itchy everytime
* pool had mould around edges
* address was confusing... It was villa Carmen but locals knew it as villa Bima so hard to find without an airport pick up
* shower head in main bathroom broken
And the biggest one of them all-
* no hot water for most of our showers!!!!!!!!!!
I think about what I could get in Australia for $400 per night and this falls well short.
On saying that- we did have a great relaxing stay. The location was amazing and Made (pronounced Ma-day) was absolutely fantastic making sure we had everything we needed.
We had a wonderful time in this villa. Bogdan was very prompt and efficient in all communications, flexible in changes we made, and nothing was too much trouble. He even went out and bought a hairdryer when my friend found that the one provided wasn't working. The transfers were on time and everything we requested was provided. The villa could do with a little maintenance and 'sproucing' up, as things are a bit worn and tired. Made, the maid, was very helpful and attentive. She was available at most times and even came to the villa to assist us with a power problem in the evening when she had gone home. The pool area was amazing and the water temperature and cleanliness was perfect.
Bogdan was excellent to deal with. He arranged for pick up from the airport and was always quick in responding to our many questions.
The villa was exactly what we were looking for. The highlight is definitely the pool. We were pleasantly surprised at how large it was!
Spent a great 3 days at Bogdan's villa!
He's a friendly host and was there to greet us and show us the map of Seminyak and Kuta.
Honestly speaking, it is not walking friendly distance from the beach. Unless of course you are a great fan of walking! Get a bike, Bogdan organised one for us the moment we got there. Was the best thing!
The villa in itself is uber cool and looks really nice in the night. The pool is great and is worth spending hours in the pool in the night! Though the pool does look a little bigger in the pics.
Our other stay in Ubud (also a villa via Airbnb) spoiled us a bit. I. E. Breakfast, toiletries etc. Hence, the stay here felt a little pricey. Also we were faced with an electrical fuse black out, so that slightly dampened spirits.
Our stay at the villa was wonderful. Bogdan arranged for us to be picked up at the airport - the driver was waiting for us when we arrived.
The villa itself is fabulous. It is exactly as it appears in the photos and had everything we needed for our stay. The location was very convenient - far enough from the main road so as not to be noisy, yet just a 5 minute walk to shops, restaurants and Bintang Market.
The place was immaculate on arrival and the staff ensured that it was kept tidy. We had the maid cook us breakfast one morning which was lovely. She also arranged for a masseur to come to the villa and give my wife a massage as well as sorting out a driver to take us to the airport when we departed.
All in all it was wonderful and the next time we return to Bali we will definitely consider staying at the villa. Thanks Bogdan :)
Bogdan was a great and very accommodating host. We were close to two hours late because of the long queues at the immigration but his driver was patiently waiting for us. Upon reaching the villa, he showed us around and made us feel very welcomed. He also stocked up the fridge with some drinks. The accommodation itself was great. Sunny in the garden and pool area made the water comfortable to be in. Supermarket is nearby with everything you need and his helper, Made, is always there to help as well. Would love to visit and stay again. :) Thanks Bogdan for the wonderful stay.
We had a great time at Bodgan's villa. He was a great host and met us when we arrived and helped us with all of our questions and was available throughout our stay. The villa was clean and a great place to relax and enjoy Seminyak! We had the best sleep here as well, as it wasn't noisy at all at night. It's about a five minute walk to the main street where there are shops and restaurants, etc.
This has been one of my best airbnb experiences so far. The villa is magnificent and is secluded in a calm peaceful part of busy Seminyak. As well, it is very close (2 mins walk) to shops, bars and restaurants. And the beach is a short walk away. So you have the best of everything, and can choose whichever one you want, when you want.
Bogdan was a very generous host. He even came looking for us when we got lost. He is justifiably proud of his beautiful villa and is very happy to see other people enjoying it.
We have stayed in other villas in Bali and by comparison, this is one of the best we have seen.
We would definitely go back again.
The Vila was amazing just as described!! It is close to shopping, night life and the beach. Bogdan is an incredible host who was always available to assist. He took time to explain the area and show us how to get around. Certainly plan on going back and can't thank Bogdan and his family enough for their graciousness.
Bogdon's place was nice for us as a family of 4and he was himself very helpful and quick in answering all our questions. He went out of his way to comply to our special request on putting the beds in one room.The villa is comfortable.
Villa was a long walk to the Main Street especially with two kids during evenings when some "gangs" were not sufficiently lit but with a taxi it was not a problem.
The only thing that needs attention was the cleanliness. When we arrived the kitchen and bathroom were not cleaned properly, the housekeeper had clearly neglected it.
With that in place, we recommend this villa to anyone on a holiday at Seminyak.
