I am married with two children, 7 and 9 years old. My husband is a writer and I run my own publishing company.
Eliza is a great host, very involved in making us feel welcome and has great quick communication leading to a very pleasant stay.
Our stay here was perfect in everyway ...we had brilliant communication absolute privacy , and the villa was awesome ...we had the convince of Bali Buddha delivery food ...amazing ...and the staff were lovely ....I would highly recommend this host ...I couldn't rate any higher ...this villa is only a 10 min bike ride into town but we hardly went there because coming home was like an oasis ....this place has it all
The villa was lovely and not to far from restaurants and shops in Kerobokan. Eliza went above and beyond with any of our queries, making our visit smooth and exciting. We loved the plunge pool and the wireless was awesome.
Eliza was nice. We had problem about keys and security concern and called her around 9.00 p. m. She came to the villa immediately. The villa was nice and had a lot space. However, door locks needed to be repaired. We already informed her and we are sure that Eliza should have repaired them.
We had stayed there only one night and felt that we should had stayed there longer. It was really home away from home experience.
Eliza was a fantastic host. The villa was beautiful, perfectly located. Far enough from the hussle and bussell of Kuta to experience "The real Bali" but close enough to catch a cab there for less than $10, My family and I had a great time. Eliza organised a driver for us to have a personalised tour for the day and a babysitter on 2 occassions allowing my husband and myself time away from the kids for .a few hrs so we could enjoy a massage. The villa is less than 5 min walk from serval delicous take away/resurants which also deliver. I'll definatley retun.:)
What can i say, i loved his place. We have been to bali so many times, this time we thought we would try something different and more private, away from the hustle and bustle that is Kuta.
It has 2 enclosed rooms with aircon and an open eating area with an amazing breeze. Being able to wake up and take a swin the relax and sunbathe without having to worry about anyone else was fantastic. We were surrounded by rice fields so the views were gorgeous. We had a fantastic fruit and pastry breakfast every morning which made us feel even more refreshed.
Eliza and Phillip were so nice, we went over to their place unannounced to talk about some things and discuss airport drop off and we were welcomed without being made to feel like we were intruding. They provided everything from fresh water, cab phone numbers, information about baby sitters, information of scooter hire and even menus for local eateries to have food delivered (i recommend Warung Global), all the information was in a little folder.
We had a cleaning lady daily at no extra cost and a gardening team a few times a week to keep the pool amazingly inviting and the plants nice and tidy.
The cons, not for ourselves but possible for others. If you haven't been to Bali before and you want to be able to walk the streets meters from your hotel and buy dvds and do all of that stuff etc then i probably wouldn't recommend staying here. Its about a 20 minute cab ride (distance plus traffic) to Kuta so if you are wanting to go there everyday it may get annoying. Also because you are in the rice fields there is constant noise by the locals trying to keep the birds away.
But honestly this was the most relaxing holiday i have ever had in Bali and the cab ride cost $5 or less which is nothing and personally after a day or so you don't even notice the noise.
I have told so many people already about this and would go back in a heart beat :)
Nice authentic feel to the place, away from the pure beach resort tourist feel of Kuta beach, but a cheap taxi ride to get there.
We stayed in a beautiful place with very charming people always ready to help you if necessary
We were able to get one night in (last minute booking!) at Villa Kacang. We tried to extend our stay, as the villa was available, but we had already made a booking elsewhere and they would not let us cancel. BUT, we will be back! From the moment we exchanged our first email, Eliza was incredibly friendly and hospitable. She came to pick us up in Sanur from our hotel there. As soon as we opened the door to the villa, we felt like we were in our own little paradise!!!!!! It was perfect for me, my husband (we just got married in Bali) and my in-laws. Phillip went above and beyond the "call of duty" and helped us to get two scooters (driving us into Seminyak), as it was a holiday so many places were closed. The decor is gorgeous. We loved all the buddhas around - especially the large water fountain buddha just off the living room. There is also a lovely breakfast!
Eliza also made some great recommendations on where to eat - we LOVED Sarong - pricier than the typical restaurant, but, definitely worth it!!!! We also LOVED Bali Buddha - have eaten there 3 times already!!!!!! Did Ku De Ta for sunset and also tried Ultimo (not bad). :) Thanks, Eliza! We hope to be back!
It was a great stau at Villa Kacang. Eliza was very caring and the location is jut beautiful. A nice 2-bedroom Villa in a quiet and pieceful area and Great stores around. The Villa is just impressing and the wifi just incredible! We will come back really soon! Thanks for the Great breakfast and the snacks :-). Julius
Eliza and her family were such a pleasure to share our property, very easy going. They even looked after our animals when we were away! We would love to see them again..
Eliza and family are very lovely people. They are easy to communicate with, very accommodating, flexible with their check in and check out time, and they follow house rules. They also tidied up our apartment before they left, felt so grateful to see their daughters helping to vacuum the carpet. We highly recommend them to other hosts.
