Very enjoyable stay at Villa. Well kept and maintained we had a peacefule time for the 7 days at Villa Katu. The extreme privacy of the Villa allowed us to soak up the sunshine and obtain our all over tan. Villa is close to everything on offer in Seminyak and surrounding areas. Restaurants recommended by owner are very good as well as the comprehensive guides and information provided. Will be back.
The reservation was canceled 17 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had initially booked this room but because we were arriving early Catou was generous enough to upgrade us to the private villa! Thank you Catou. We enjoyed our stay in Bali at your villa and would definitely come back!
I was informed, upon arrival, by Catou that this villa was double-booked and since the other guest(s) booked the entire villa while my friend and I had only booked one room in this villa, we were given an entirely different villa. However, the saving grace was that we had THAT entire villa to ourselves.
Catou did spring some surprises on us in the other villa by hosting another couple for 2(?) nights out of our 5 nights though, we had thought we were going to have our privacy for the whole 5 nights.
Since I cannot comment on this villa, seeing how we did not actually stay here, I would comment that Catou is a really friendly host and is willing to help when you let her know what you need.
Villa was amazing... exactly what you expect from the photos..
Never saw the cleaners, always seemed to get cleaned while I was away.
Great service and enjoyable experience
Me and my husband stay at Le Sourire for 3 nights and regret we didn't stay longer during our holiday in Bali. Catou was very nice host, she welcome us and give us a map for our reference. The villa itself very cozy as there is many bean bags to lay on sunny day, kitchen with enough equipment if you want to cook and the pool is perfect. We are lucky there's no other person who rent the other room so me and my husband can have a full privacy. The villa location is in quite neighboorhood but no so far to the busy area..it tooks only 3 min by scooter to get to Kunti 1 which have many restaurant and boutique. We really enjoyed stay at Le Sourire and for sure will be back for our next holiday!
Nous avons passé 5 jours dans la villa de Catou, nous étions 5 jeunes de 22 ans et la villa correspondait parfaitement a nos attentes.
Prise en charge a l'aéroport par le chauffeur extrêmement sympa !
Propreté de la villa irréprochable, services excellent.
Catou nous a bien aidé avec des conseils précieux pour visite Bali.
Séjour des plus agréable !
Je recommande très fortement cette villa, de plus elle est extrêmement bien située, au calme et proche de ma plage.
Catou was very friendly and she welcomed us warmly. The house was clean and chic, especially the garden is nice and lovely. The small pool is good for a daily refreshment and especially the garden lighting at night was extraordinarily. Everything in the house worked well. Catou helped us wherever it's possible. The house is situated in a very quiet and safe area, 15 minutes walk to the (website hidden): The cooling water dispenser help us to survive the balinese heat!
Thank you Catou, we enjoyed every minute in the house and we will definitely come back again.
I haven't stayed at the villa "Le sourire", but at villa Rosa. The villa was perfect, I had a big bedroom and bathroom, the living room and the pool were also very enjoyable. The villa is located in Seminyak, just like the others villas Catou rents I think. It is a very busy town close to the ocean, where many foreigners are staying.
I didn't really liked the city actually, I wanted something more quiet, but maybe I should have checked before.
Anyway, Catou is a very cool host. She always replys to any inquiry, and is available when we need her.
The only thing I would advise you not to do are the tours. Catou proposes some tours that cost quite a lot, and the drivers are not always good. Maybe some of them are very nice guides, but I have been not lucky with a driver who did not understand English, and who took me only to touristic areas, that I wanted to avoid actually.
Response from Catou:
Hello Morgane, c'est déjà fait…. je viens de trouver un autre guide, un Balinais qui parle couramment français et anglais…. le Top. Bonne continuation à toi. Catou
The villa was really clean, beautiful and peaceful. About 10min walk to seminyak shops. A good place to stay at :) one day there was a power trip and Catou came to deal with it, she gives me a sense of reliability. It was a good experience and i would recommend anyone looking for a clean and beautiful villa to stay here!
Désireuse de faire un séjour à Bali,un compagnon de voyage m'a parlé de Catou et de son hospitalité . Je suis donc allée sur sa page (website hidden) "le sourire de bali" et j'ai decidé de passer quelques jour dans cette endroit fort sympathique. La villa est tres agreable, au calme.. Un petit havre de serenite.... Et pourtant tout a cote du centre de Seminyak. La villa est tres bien entretenue et propre. L'accueil de Catou fut des plus sympathiques et je l'a remercie encore pour tous ces conseils et le road trip a Ubud organise par ses soins. Bali et la villa "le sourire de bali"...c'est que du bonheur, j'y retournerai avec grand plaisir
