The villa was quite spacious for 5 people and the pool is very nice. The staff were very accommodating, we were especially grateful that even with a 2hr delay the driver was still there. The walk to seminyak beach is around 20 mins and can be a bit difficult to figure out at first but the location is still quite convenient. We only had a small problem with the electricity as it suddenly went out, but it could be switched back on easily.
Very good place to stay, very nice villa with a great private swimming pool.
We had a great stay in this very nice villa. Every thing was as expected and even better. The house was awesome, well located and was cleaned every day. The staff was really friendly and helpfull. I would definitely go back there if I get the chance to travel again to Bali.
Great place to stay, very nice rooms and facilities. Philippe was also very accommodative and helpful with everything, would recommend anyone to stay here.

Very nice place. Philippe was brilliant, any email and queries were answered within minutes.
There are two cleaning ladies, a general manager called Bambang and security guards. they will help with anything like I locked my safe in, flush got stuck, run out of fresh water etc.
The pool is nice and kids enjoyed themselves.
There is also a functioning pool table which I used a lot.
The rooms are nice and furnished to a good standard. The bathrooms are large.
Nearby there is a large supermarket, lots of taxis nearby and Jalan Raya Seminyak is within walking distance. There is also a Brasco factory outlet shopping, a Krishna Bali souvenir store nearby.
There is also a Carrefour supermarket within 5 minutes taxi.
A McDonalds also within walking distance.
We ate a lot of nasi padang while we were there, there are many shops nearby.
Don't be put off by the slightly rough busy main road just outside the villa. All as above can be explored by foot.
All in all a good experience and i would recommend it.
We had a great time in Semyniak. Unfortunately at the last minute we were scheduled to another house, Philippe told us it was due to water treatment issues in the house but actually it turned out to be due to an overbooking (according to our new hosts told us). Most Villa rental offers in Bali are managed as efficiently/aggressively as hotels are, don't expect a confidential family owned business experience. We don't consider this as a misadventure though, besides Philippe was helpful and flexible and the new house was as great as our high expectations, the hosts were very welcoming. Check out their villas at Balicosy on the Internet. Special thanks to Aldi, Alexandre and his wife!

Antara is a lovely cosy villa situated in a quiet neighbourhood 8 mins walk away from the bustle of the main Jalan Raya Seminyak. There is a mini mart about 5 mins walk away. Convenient! We had some issues with transport on the last day, but Philippe was only a phone call away, and really accommodating. Bang Bang, the villa manager also went out of his way to help. Unlike other villas I was grateful for the insect repellent and sunscreen provided - things I always forget to bring! The villa is missing some wine glasses but that was no biggie ;) Overall Antara was a lovely villa and we shall be back! Merci Philippe.
Response from Philippe:
Thanks Shi, i promise you that next time i will provide you win glasses AND a bottle of wine ;-)
We stayed in the 4 bedroom Antara Villa which was just perfect for us. The rooms (which aren't pictured) are amazing and huge! And each one has its own bathroom so is easy for couples/friends etc. The pool and pool area is amazing and the cabana/day bed was just heavenly to lie around on! Great location of the vila, can easily walk into seminyak and lovely local market (with amazing food!) 100m away too. Although I didn't get to meet Philippe, he was so lovely to deal with and answered all of my many questions very quickly. The staff at the villa are incredibly friendly and warm and nothing is too much trouble. The service was impeccable, the vila even better than the pictures - I couldn't recommend it more highly!
