I Like Stuff :)
i especially like traveling through Asia and have been an avid Asian tourist for nearly a decade.
I was worrying about this place a little bit, since the last review, but decided to try. It was a nice surprise to come back to the same location after a year - accidentally this house was located just a few houses down the road of our previous vacation's house on Bali.
Nat arranged a pickup for us from Kuta. Driver wasn't speaking english but finally managed to find our hotel. :)
Lia, the housekeeper, met and showed us everything. House was clean and well equipped. It was spacious enough for three of us and we enjoyed our stay. House is located in a quiet location, close to the beach, a few good restaurants and a supermarket.
We didn't meet Nat, but he was constantly available via e-mail. He was very helpful and polite.
We stayed for six nights during new year and didn't had any troubles. I would definitely recommend this place and this host to anybody.
Although this villa is wonderful with beautiful rice field views and close to great restaurants, I cannot give a high rating as our experience was not a good one.
In all our travels, we have not dealt with such an inhospitable and ungracious host. We were not picked up from the airport by the driver as promised and we had very expensive items stolen from the locked villa ($3,400 USD worth total). We checked out early as we did not feel safe after the theft. After all that, the host proceeded to blame us for the theft and then tried to take our $506 deposit since we returned the villa keys a day late as we were traveling back from another island.
We treated the house with respect and care as any tenant should and were more than gracious with our interactions with the owner. I do not wish for anyone else to have such an experience so I do not recommend this place.
The villa was great, so comfortable and really homely. The location is close to a number of great surf spots and also the bustle of Seminyak. I thoroughly recommend staying here, you won't regret it!!
The villa was great. We felt at home straight away. Natas and Lia were very helpful and we could not have asked for more.
Natas was the ideal guest! Quiet, clean (very clean, left his room in near immaculate condition) and friendly. We'd recommend Natas to any host!
