What an fantastic find! As one of three girlfriends who stayed in Amanda's house, I can honestly say we all had a fantastic time and the position could not be more perfect. As many have said on previous feedback, although so close to everything it is extremely quiet and a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle. Cleaning done 6 days of the week. We had a problem with electricity black outs from a blown fuse box and Amanda was always available for advice and help and we eventually had an electrician come out and rectify the problem. Loved having the private pool for late night dips. As with all open air homes I advise to buy mozzie coils and spray as they can be brutal but this is all over Bali. It was mentioned that the home was undergoing to refurbishment which I will be excited to see next time.
Overall we had an awesome stay and will have no hesitation in staying here again on my next visit to Bali.
Hallo evtl. Urlauber von Amandas Haus.
Ja, dort hinzukommen ist fantastisch. Ein wunderschönes, im balinesischen Baustil, gebautes offenes Haus. Eine wahnsinns Aussicht. Den Hafen direkt unterhalb und vor einen Grün mit Kolibries.
Wer entspannen möchte ist hier richtig.
Die Staff vom Resort "Bloo Lagoon" ist sehr hilfsbereit und nett.
Saubere Anlage, einen schönen Spa-Bereich.
This is a beautiful villa in an amazing location. The staff and facilities at Bloo Lagoon make for an ideal and relaxing holiday. My only concern is that my wife LOVED it so much she wants to go back as soon as possible!
We really appreciated our stay with Amanda. Her house is beautiful with stunning views. There's a nice swimmingpool too. Padangbai is also worth while, away from the bustling crowds in Ubud but still enough bars and restaurants you will find. Thanks again Amanda, we had a good time!
"Stunning Seaviews" still doesn't quite prepare you for the amazing feeling you get when you walk through Amanda's house and onto that terrace. Wow!! Truly breathtaking!
The house is beautiful, so much space! And really well fitted out with everything you need right down to the small details; hand soaps, shampoo, ample towels for shower and pool/beach, fully appointed kitchen if you want to cook your own meals, etc, etc.
Perfect place to just chill out and enjoy.
We had our 2 6yr old girls with us, and they fell completely in love with the place also, especially the pool. It really is like a lagoon, and has an awesome waterside, volleyball net and ball, floating airbed and, a cave. Very cool.
The restaurant serves an affordable breakfast buffet served by the pool, which was really good with plenty of variety.
There's snorkelling to be experienced at the little Lagoon Beach, plus there's a white sandy beach nearby (though we didn't make it there-too busy doing nothing!)
Bikes can be hired, and there's heaps of friendly locals in Pedang Bai to help you organise day trip, boat trips, fishing, diving etc.
We recommend Amanda's place to anyone wanting to chill out and immerse yourself in a bit of luxury for a while.
Amanda was great to deal with every step of the way, very fast to reply and assist in whatever ways she could.
Amanda's Pretty House is a fantastic spot! For a family, or small group of friends, this place has everything you could possibly want - all in a convenient and fun location. Amanda was a great host, making sure everything was set up before our arrival and also checking in when she could. We especially loved the upstairs bedroom, the perfect pool for morning swims and the open-air living room. This was a perfect spot for a soft landing in Bali. Thanks, Amanda!
We had an amazing stay in Amanda's gorgeous holiday house in Legian (https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/540741).
She was extremely helpful from the start, making sure our needs were catered for. She speaks perfect Bahasa and directed our driver to the property after we had lost our way.
The villa was gorgeous, perfect pool, great kitchen and the outside bathroom was fab (with consistent hot water and plenty of fresh towels). It's off Jalan Legian which is a busy street with restaurants, shops and spas on. It's a nice quiet street where we felt completely safe and away from the hustle and bustle (but not totally remote). Fantastic location not too far away from the great and popular Oberoi road and Seminyak.
Amanda had plenty of recommendations for us which helped us get the most out of our stay, and she has also compiled a great book of the best places to go and helpful information about the area which we referred to every day.
We wish we could have taken the villa with us to the next part of our trip, everywhere else we stayed paled in comparison to this.
Absolutely 5 star and would recommend to everyone. We hope to return again.
Comfortable villa in great location near Jl Nakula and Jl Legian. Helpful and knowledgable host with lots of advice for eating places new and old! Pool was great to cool off in. Comfortable bedding. Would visit again.
I am proud to list Amanda, and her mother Marilyn, as friends now but I first met them when I rented the 3-bed slice of paradise in Kuta for my niece and some friends doing a round-the-world trip. Being an old fogey, I wanted to ensure they were comfortable and safe - at least by the time they got back to bed each night. When they arrived to stay with me in East Timor, I couldn't wait to meet Amanda & Marilyn as they could not stop talking about how wonderful the villa is and how friendly and helpful, and interesting, the host was. Luckily for me, I did get to meet them and to stay in the villa. Ah...
The other reviewers have described the house well, so I won't repeat the accolades, but I can add that what is so wonderful about renting from Amanda is the experience of her kindness, generosity and helpfulness, and her exuberant knowledge about Bali in its many manifestations.
The villa is gorgeous in every way and absolutely amazing value for money. With Amanda as your host, you can also be sure of complete relaxation as soon as you step through the entrance gate.
We stayed at this property oin April and we were more than happy with everything while staying there.. The location was perfect for everything we wanted to do and was good at the end of the day to get away the the hussel n bussel of Kuta. I cant wait to stay in my home away from home again.
