we had a fantastic stay. everything worked and the pictures can only describe the beauty. make sure to get a scooter for easy transport to beach.
Thanks Dirk. Glad you enjoyed !!
This villa is very well equipped and walking to some great restaurants. We enjoyed the plush fittings and furniture. The kitchen is amazing. The only downside was there there isn't really anywhere outside to relax and socialise.
The host was extremely helpful and processional.
Another great stay at Tanur Barak...hosts and service excellent.
Thank you Martin. So glad you all enjoyed your stay again. Hope you got some good waves :)
We spend 5 very nice days in Shelley house ... really difficult to find something négatif... design perfect, confortable and full of little détails we are really recommend this elegant house...
We and some friends stayed at echo beach for a month, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the neighbours are just great and friendly, the location is very good and quiet.
You will need a scooter or if you are not the scooter type the office staff organize a driver for you.
The beach and cafes are all very close, there are some amazing surf spots not too far up the coast so go explore as canggu and echo beaches are very busy.
The villa itself has the wow factor when you first walk in. we were a little disappointed that the villa is completely closed in and no opening windows, just a lot of air conditioning, so if that's your thing this place is absolutely perfect, we would have preferred more fresh air. There is also very little room to lay around the pool if there is more than a few people staying at the villa.
The staff are very helpful and friendly and the villa was clean, tidy and secure. We recommend staying here unless you like the traditional bali open plan villas.
The king size bed is 2 single beds and really uncomfortable as are the other singles in the third room The queen size room is the best.
Apart from these things that we did not spot in the photos when booking we very much enjoyed our stay.
My experience was perfect. Communication was swift and easy. The villa was a paradise and I would love stay again. The location was nice and quiet, although longer to reach Seminyak than I had expected, even with short cuts on scooters.
All around a wonderful stay, thanks guys
We had a wonderful stay at Villa Tanah Barak. We have 2 small children who LOVED the pool and the layout really worked for us. It was handy being able to prepare our own meals in the very well stocked kitchen and there was nothing we needed that we didn't have. The extra towels, books and dvds were welcome additions. The location was great for us - a short walk to the beach and excellent meal options (Balinese, French, Indian, Spanish). We liked to that we were still able to experience the traditional Bali. We observed the daily rituals and during our stay the locals were burning the rice paddies around us. Shelley was responsive to our emails and provided us with additional information when requested. We'd highly recommend a stay at Tanah Barak.
Villa Tanah Barak was very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay very much. The villa was ideal for our extended visit. (2 months)
Comfortable furniture and a well stocked kitchen made it very convenient for relaxing in the villa when not out exploring Bali. The bedroom that we slept in was cool and quiet. The connected bathroom was large with a “great” shower.
Although we stayed during the “wet season”, it rained very little and we spent time in the beautiful pool almost every day.
The butler and the pool cleaner came every three days to ensure that the villa and the pool were kept clean and well maintained. They were both receptive to any special requests regarding cleaning.
The villas location was exactly what we were looking for. A relatively quiet area, close to the beach and restaurants. (about 2/3 minutes by scooter) We rented a scooter for getting around locally. Would recommend renting a van with a driver for more extended sight seeing and any major shopping trips.
As mentioned in prior reviews, the WIFI was very slow when we arrived. But, within a week of our arrival, the WIFI system was upgraded and that made huge difference. The system works very good now. (good for Bali that is).
All in all, we had a great visit and found the villa to be exactly as advertised.
Villa Tanah Barak is a very stylish villa with great amenities. If you wanted to stay put in the villa, there is a very complete kitchen, TV and internet. The internet can be very slow at times. The pool would be perfect for a refreshing dip. We visited during the wet season and the weather conspired against us having the opportunity to chill out in or around the pool.
Location wise, the villa is great if you want to get away from busy tourist areas. Seminyak is still only a taxi ride away.
Shelley was great to deal with. She was very accommodating and quick to respond to our questions/concerns.
Amazing! Stunning place, gorgeous pool, really fabulous service. House is VERY well stocked with cooking supplies, towels, pretty much anything you need. Oven, toaster oven, microwave, tons of pots and pans, etc. So incredibly relaxing. Villa staff is AMAZING. They come to clean twice a week but otherwise leave you plenty of privacy unless you need them. They are on call to cater to any request (they'll have a motorbike delivered to your house, or send a driver any time you need one, help organize day trips, etc.) The decor is beyond beautiful (really can't praise that highly enough, everything was just lovely) and all amenities are very comfy - beds, couches, cabana loungers. Couldn't recommend this more highly for a place to go to relax. I had a terrific time.
Only two drawbacks: One, you've got to rent a scooter or driver if you want to get anywhere central. The location is not within walking distance of any grocery stores (there are mini-marts and several good restaurants, though!) and you will not be able to buy much food to cook or bottles of wine / spirits unless you get a driver or a moped and take a while to go shopping. Two, there is wifi but the internet was slow to the point of being unusable. Facebook took about 5-10 minutes to load, and other pages needed to be loaded then left alone for about 5 minutes before you could see page content, so this would not be a good place to stay and work. However, the restaurants that are nearby all have great wifi so if you only need to do any real computing every few days, it doesn't matter.
Great guests! Please come again!
