stephanie's place is absolute heaven and stephanie is an absolute angel. you won't read a more positive review than that! look no further, stay here!!!
Stunning place! Lovely garden and pool and a nice bedroom with a shower just as big as the bedroom.
Pretty much like in the pictures. Quiet tucked away neighborhood, a 5 minutes ride to the hustle bustle but far enough to have your peace and quiet when you choose to.
Initially, the settling in was a bit of a drag as the fan wasn't work in the room we were given and the air con was taking a while to kick in and of course, it was a very hot day. Stephanie was very nice and considerate about it and was happy for us to move into the other room straightaway with no fuss whatsoever. We had the whole place to ourselves and the whole stay was very cruisy. We were put in touch with a guy for scooter and cars which made travelling around a breeze.
Stephanie was great, easy to talk to and very straightforward and simple to deal with. The villa had a file with very handy tips and things we could do in and around the Seminyak. We were allowed a pretty late check out which was ABSOLUTELY GREAT! That made our last day there that much more easier without the stress of having to pack and leave straight after a late night. Thank you for that!
Great place and great people!
Stephanie and the staff greeted us on arrival so it was a good opportunity to meet everyone. We stayed for 4 nights and everyone was very friendly and accessible without being intrusive. We loved the villa, bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious , modern and clean. We liked the privacy of the bedrooms being separated by the kitchen/ dining area. Villa is about a 5 minute walk from main road , bintang supermarket and all amenities and the walk there and back is delightful through the little lane ways . We thoroughly enjoyed out stay . Stephanie was very accomodating and kind enough to allow us to stay until we were ready to depart for the airport ( as villa was free next day ) at no extra cost . This meant a great deal to us and made our last day pleasant and enjoyable, as our flight was 11pm so we effectively could relax till then.
We came to discover Stephanie also ran a fabulous cafe we had already been frequenting for breakfast : The Shelter . Highly recommend the great food, staff and service .
Overall a great experience .
We had a great stay in seminyak @ Vila jas. The garden + Vila are beautiful and it was a great place to acclimatise after we landed. Highly recommended!
The villa is just as described. Perfectly situated in very close walking distance from the Bintang Grocery store, which had absolutely everything you need to make a few meals or have a few beverages at the rental. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of room to enjoy the property. Though in such close proximity to a major road the property was very quite and super private. Some previous reviewers mentioned issues with noise from motorcycles ? We did not experience this issue and certainly had no issues / noise issues from neighbors. Communication with Stephanie prior to booking was helpful and prompt. We did not meet the host however the cleaning staff helped us upon our arrival to locate the property which was tricky to find / lack of signage, and was helpful when we stayed with arranging a driver and in-house massage (wonderful, inexpensive and what a treat). Best find local restaurant, traditional French bistro called "SIP" across the street from the Bintang Grocery store. Absolutely amazing cuisine, the chef had worked at a number of 2 star Michelin rated restos in France. Decor, service and the outstanding food makes this a must when staying at Villa Seminyak given it's close proximity.
Overall, this was our favourite stay in Bali for a variety of reasons; this is a wonderful property in a fabulous location. We will definitely return and would highly recommend it.
We stayed at villa for 11 nights.
We had some negative and positive during our staying.
Negative: bad villa management
-The towels were old and look dirty. These were literally dirty with dark spots. Stephanie changed it for new only in a week after arrival.
-The TV did not work, it was fixed also in a week after arrival.
-The cleaning is to be better, as Iluh (made) normally did not clean under bed and wardrobe. There are a lot of giant bugs which visited our bedroom during the night. We found dead one under the wardrobe and it spent there 2 or 3 days until I removed it myself.
-As far as I understand the owner wanted to wear off an impression and offered free transfer to airport. Unfortunately it was not bonus, the driver charged us for 150K Rupiahs. Taxi will be 2 times cheaper. Such a bonus)). Yes, she was very sorry (“I’ve just had the worst luck with you”) about it and offered to send us money overseas.
-Good location, close to all dining spot. The only issue that it is located near the road (gang) and it is very noisy during the day.
-Very good pool, equipped kitchen, very comfortable matrass.
-Mrs. Yuni, she helps Stephanie and her guests, she was very welcome and helpful.
Nevertheless, our vacation was excellent, our kid was very happy to be in Bali.
Beautiful villa exactly as described! Ultra relaxing - a beautiful haven that felt away from the bustling Seminyak (but still right amongst the action once leaving the villa)! Very clean, staff extremely attentive. Johnny was there to greet us at the airport as Steph had organised for us. Beautiful open living plan and perfectly tropical. Would absolutely recommend to others seeking a perfect holiday in Seminyak. Hot tip is Steph's restaurant which is nearby called the Shelter (amazing breakfasts here)!
My girlfriend and I are exploring Bali for holiday and looking for a place to land and relax while we explored Seminyak. Stephanie was very prompt and courteous in responding to our questions about the villa. Upon arrival, Illu the housekeeper showed us around and made sure to answer any questions. She keeps the place very clean and tidy. Including taking our laundry to the cleaners. The Villa is exactly as in pictures and is a very pleasant place. A quaint little cocoon slightly separate from the busy Seminyak main streets. The bed was very comfortable though an additional softer pillow would have helped my girlfriend avoid the kink in her neck. The only drawback to this lovely villa is the gang just on the other side of the wall from the pool which makes for near constant motorcycle noise while trying to rest by the pool. Luckily the bedroom is insulated from that noise so sleep isn't interrupted. If you are staying at the Villa Stephanie, you must try some of the food from her restaurant Shelter! It's delicious and they deliver.
We have just returned from Villa Jas, very well equipped with added pantry items, repellant ( essential in December), Jonny the pick up driver was on time and we used his services for a tour of the island too. Everything was clean within the villa and we enjoyed the garden and pool especially.
We couldn't get the TV to switch across to cable but plenty of cheap DVD's to purchase up the main street in Seminyak. Everything within easy walking distance, Sip Restaurant was great dining - would recommend this if you are celebrating -otherwise plenty of great cafes in the area. Would recommend this as a great place to stay - back from the bustle of the main high street, just bear in mind that Christmas and New Year is very very busy traffic wise - took us two and three quarter hours to get to Ubud which should only take 45 mins so allow enough time and pack some water.
Stephanie made sure we were picked up from the airport promptly despite our flight being delayed for over two hours. Superb service. She was there when we first arrived and made sure we feel right at home. Villa was beautiful as promised. She added a personal touch by placing mosquito repellant on our bedside tables for the trip. Pantry was readied with cups/dishes/spices and all necessary utensils and the living room was complimented with mosquito coils and ashtrays. We personally loved the bed and soft comforter; sparkling white and smells of fresh linen! Illu, the domestic helper, comes in to provide a basic cleaning service every day and we'd come home to ready-made beds and fresh towels. Johnny and Wayan; the two drivers we had during our 5D stay are friendly and reliable. We couldn't be more pleased.
Second best thing about the place is its superb location right smacked in bustling Seminyak; couple mins drive to neighouring Oberoi and Kuta districts. We were a short walk away from Bintang Supermarket and perhaps a 30 min walk to Kuta Beach. The district has so many cafes we visited a total of 10 of them in the span of 3 days. We highly recommend Stephanie's own cafe - SHELTER, just a 10 mins walk away from the villa due to the fresh juices and gratifying foodfare offered. The ambience was great and we had a cool breeze whilst having breakfast there.
To end off, Stephanie offered the added service of allowing us to leave our baggage at a safe location before we are due to the airport on our last day there.
We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this villa for everyone! We also personally vouch for Stephanie's pride in servitude and acute reliability in making 1st timers feel safe and assured in a new environment.
