This was my first Airbnb experience.
Prior to my visit, Vlad was very helpful & answered my questions promptly.
He also helped arrange for a driver to pick us up from the airport which was great because the location is slightly off the beaten track. We didn’t know we had to pay for this so there was a tiny bit of confusion. The price, however, was less than the regular rate so I would advise that you go for this service.
Despite being off the beaten track, the location is actually really good. It’s close to Vasanti (a new resort), so it’s easy for taxi drivers to access. It’s also just a 5 min walk to the main road where shops & restaurants are all located. You can easily get a taxi from this main street. I would advise that you bring a flashlight out as it can get dark if you decide to walk out at night.
The area is peaceful & the villa is perfect & comfortable for a party of 4.
Amenities wise, the toiletries were a little lacking (but this is easily solved at the nearby convenience store for about 30,000 rupiah) & the safe wasn't working. They do provide clean water from a dispenser at three different temperatures (hot, normal & cold), which was lovely.
The kitchen was well furnished with pots, pans & dishes,etc but the most important item – a bottle opener, was missing. No worries though, I bought one & contributed it to the villa lol

Ok so we were in a bind.... the villa we booked in Seminyak did not turn out well and we started talking with AIRBNB about changing Villas. I messaged Vlad at 8pm and he accepted our booking that night and sent someone around to show us the way to his villa. So a BIG thank you for helping us out. Vlad's villa is new and clean. We enjoyed our 5 day stay. Idea for 2 couples or a family with kids. Its walking distance to the beach. Thanks Vlad once again.
I had an amazing stay at Vlad's Vila. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Vlad but that was partly my own fault as i was out exploring every day (Vlad offered to come say hi). The villa looks great in the photos but is even better once you get there. Everything worked fine and the rooms were spacious. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to Seminyak square but Potato Head and the W resort are only 5 minutes away. I'd recommend hiring a scooter to get around on if you feel comfortable enough. The greatest part about this place though was how safe we felt the whole time. The Balinese locals living around us were lovely and always said hi or offered directions. You will struggle to find better value in Seminyak!
This is a spectacular place to stay.
Some important points:
1. Tell everyone that you are staying at the Vasanti Kuta Hotel
2. You will need Vasanti Kuta's Hotel's phone number to book taxis
3. Getting to the beach is a 10 min walk down a path you wouldn't think of going down. Once you get there you will be happily rewarded.
4. Super clean rooms. Great pool. Awesome people in the area. Completely safe and quiet.
5. Perfect for 2 couples. Not ideal for 2 guys to stay.
6. 5 min from Potato Head, Ku De Ta, and the W. All good places to eat / drink at night.
We will stay here again!
The villa was great, very clean, great mattresses, appliances, etc. The pool was perfect for midafternoon cool downs (maybe not for laps though).
Vladimir was an excellent host, VERY responsive to any issue, often arriving like a white knight on his scooter to personally attend to any problems. The only problems we did have were of our own devising (mostly logistical) but he was always happy to help.
Keep in mind that you're still a pretty long walk from the beach (no direct route) so I would recommend renting scooters (it costs $5 a day!).
The most wise decision that we make during our trip to Bali was booking this Villa. Thank you for your amazing hospitality and ensuring we get what we request for. You guys are amazing. We will definitely stay in this villa again for our next visit!
