having worked 32 years in hospitality I know what a guests wants. Especially on a holiday everything has to be nice. The location, the villa itself but also the service and food.

Not really sure where to start here; so I guess the best place to start is at the beginning. There was no one to contact regarding directions or help navigating to the villa which was a huge downfall, I spent about an hour searching, even with the seemingly good directions that were sent to me once i asked for them. The villa has breathtaking views and a WONDERFUL staff. I had been in Bali for a month already and it seemed that the bugs congregate in the Singaradja area and due to the "open" feel of the villa, they make themselves right at home. The staff was always around, neighbors were in the yard and fisherman were right in front of the house until around 3am each night, thus offering ZERO privacty except for a 3 hour break in the day when the staff went home. It would also be more accurately described as a HOME STAY, as the owners typically live on site and happened to be away during my stay. Their lovely friend Nellie stopped by to make sure I had everything I needed and answered any questions I had. Dead rotting crab in my bathroom (-), gecko under my pillow (-), and spiders and bugs galore in the room (-), cold water jacuzzi (-), no a/c in loft or living room (-), uncomfortable bedding (-), not enough hot water to fill a bathtub after a long massage (-), GREAT MASSEUSE ON CALL (+), WONDERFUL STAFF & CHEF (+). Upon reaching out to Albert regarding several issues and then to AirBnb, I was told that it was ridiculous for me to complain about the bugs/wildlife in the room (even though I had been across all of indonesia and the bugs were worse at this home than any other. Also, no bathroom accoutrements which was a bit interesting. A rental car is needed for the area and to get to the Carrefour and back with groceries (about 30 minutes away)
Stunning Villa, it is really amazing. Best place to relax and do nothing. There are activities to do around (diving, snorkeling, Waterfalls) though.
The only thing we did not really appreciate are the people working there who speak very poor English (apart from the driver). They were friendly but we had trouble communicating with them and they were of no big help to us.
The beach (sand) facing the house was quite dirty (rubbish on it), we did not swim in it as we saw not one near that place swimming in it.
Stunning property! Accommodating host. Stayed in the area for 4 days with days planned to do activities, but ended up wanting to just relax and listen to the waves while laying out. We'll be back soon. Thank you Albert and Ajoe.
Thanks for your positive review. We will love to have you stay with us again in future.
