My husband and I stayed here last week. It was exactly as depicted in the photos. A fantastic location and Eric came and introduced himself and answered any queries that we had. Would recommend this villa to stay in and will definitely be staying there again.
Great location in Seminyak. It was very convenient to walk to busier areas but still far enough from the action to be quiet and peaceful at night. It can be a little hard for taxi drivers to find but one can get around that by asking for dropoff at a nearby landmark (e.g. MiniMart on Jalan Mertasari).
Eric was a very helpful host, responding very quickly to any questions we had and helping us to arrange transfers and drivers (all of whom were excellent).
The villa itself was as advertised in the pictures. It was spacious, well-furnished, and clean.
Eric was a great host! Very accommodating and considerate and flexible. The Villa is in a great location and is well equipped. The rooms are air conditioned, beds comfortable and each room has a tv and dvd player. The yard and pool are well maintained. The house is very secure and in a quiet spot amoungst the hustle and bustle of Seminyak. Highly recommend this listing!!!
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Eric was a great host, and the villa was amazing. Great location (about 5 minute walk to Seminyak square, but still very quiet), great cleaning staff, pictures on airbnb are very accurate. Would definitely recommend to friends and would stay again if we are ever back in Seminyak.
We had a lovely time at Eric's villa. Eric was a great host and he helped us everytime we needed. Eric is very friendly and relaxed so we felt like at home. The villa is beautiful and the pool really nice. The location is great as even though is so close to restaurants and bars , it is very quiet and peaceful.
I really recommend this accommodation.
Location is good, villa is spacious, pool and garden are good, aircon units in the bedrooms function well, don’t smell (a common issue in the tropics) and are quiet. We had an issue with the water pump/heater failing, which was fixed on the day it was reported. However, the following issues existed with property which left us with a negative view of this property, and significantly impacted our stay:
1. Dirt and grime had built up over a long period (months I would guess) which needed immediate attention. On the day I arrived (Sat night) I was told the soonest this could be looked at was Monday. I cleaned myself as I wasn't prepared to wait and the condition of the villa wasn't acceptable:
a. Grime had built up on the wooden dining room table and chairs so they were nearly black in parts. Passing a cloth over a chair back came up very dirty. I needed to thoroughly clean before I could use.
b. Grime on wicker sofa backs and arms from people's hands. Was sticky as a result. Similar with coffee table.
c. Bannisters on the stairs the same, a thick layer of dirt needed cleaning off.
d. Bathrooms needed a deep clean.
2. Maintenance issues:
a. Some of the bed linen was very old, worn out. Pillowcases frayed and coming un-stitched. Hole in bottom sheet.
b. General maintenance issue: screws coming loose on door fittings, tap fittings loose in sinks, bathroom shower head wall fitting coming loose.
I've booked the villa 3 months in advance, but just before the booking date the host informed me that the villa was three times overbooked (only in october!) He left us two options: to cancel all, or to accept his offer, to stay half of the time in an other villa of him. We discovered he had also two other villas. Those were less in quality.
We decided not to accept his offer. We luckily found another villa.
But as we asked him to cancel the contract, he refused. He told us he never mend to cancel all, but only a few days.
It is hard to find an other villa for only a short period (in our case 6 days) mostly a minimum of 7 days is required.
Therefore we would not recommend this host to others.
The villa was nice and clean, but there were no TV-connection, only DVD-players in the bedrooms. No TV in sitting room. No toaster or other kitchen appliances.
The host and his staff were difficult to reach.
Our stay at this villa was just great. Our family, with 2 children really enjoyed our stay here. Eric, the host, has been wonderful. From car pick up to welcoming us at the villa. He was very responsive to any queries during our stay.
The villa is lovely, very spacious and beautifully decorated. Beds are very comfortable and linnen and towels changed every 3 days. The kitchen is basic but we did not do any major cooking.
The helpers come every day to clean the villa (except Sunday).
The villa is at the end of a street and we rented scooters that would take us around easily. Lots of restaurants and shops in the area and the beach (Ku De Ta) is 5 min by scooter.
We would wholeheartedly recommend this villa. It's a great value for money.
Thank you Eric for being so welcoming! Maybe we'll see you sometimes soon!
The Villa is amazing value for money!
Great location, big rooms, nice arrangements, super clean (the cleaning squad comes everyday around lunch time) and nice small pool for a quick refreshing jump, not for swimming though, but that's no problem since the beach is only a 10 min. walk away. By scooter, which you should definately get, it's less than 5 mins. The main streets (Oberoi) with all restaurants and shops is just 5 mins by walk and Sunset road, the main road to get to other places on the island is also just 5 mins by scooter.
All in all, we had a great stay at Eric's place. He is always reachable and answers really fast. We were already staying in Bali and booked the Villa within 3 hours.
I think the best rating you can give is that you would stay there again and I would definately do that!!! I have nothing to complain about, apart from my sunburn!
Khun Eric Shammaa are so lovely guest ever, and stay with us for 6 days. He very very kindly with us. Would like to thank you so much and welcoming again at Lemonade Phuket, Phuket Thailand anytime!!
