The overall impression is a pleasant couple. However,they did seem a bit confused and culture-shocked, being new to Airbnb and this being their first time in a South East Asian (developing) country. They were a bit up-tight and really need to understand that in Bali everything is a lot more relaxed and easygoing on tropical islands, and just go with the flow a bit (we are not living the city life here!). We always offer our guests sightseeing advice when they ask for it, but we never offer unsolicited advice as we believe it is not our job to tell you what to do on your own holiday! But all you have to do is ask us..! Our Villa is down a village lane in a quiet Balinese neighbourhood so we doubt you heard any road traffic... maybe it was the cows! (thanks for telling us about the water pump sound, which has now been serviced). The bath is clean - what you saw was the natural 'stains pattern' from the marble / terrazzo stone bath material! The scooter was kindly provided to you by my wife at a cheap price for your convenience because you didn't want to look for one outside! Instead of asking you to check-out at 12pm, we allowed you to stay in your room and use all the villa facilities for the whole day until 7pm at night at no extra charge! You are mistaken if you think you can get half price taxis from the airport because the airport taxi service has fixed prices set by the airport transport company. Street taxis have meters but you can't take these from the airport (only to the airport). We recommend that If you prefer to have more of the typical Western "Package Holiday" with the services, activities and bus tours already planned for you, we suggest next time you book a resort hotel (which of course will cost you a lot more money...), instead of a homestay or BnB which saves you a lot of money and requires more of an adaptive mid-set and respect of the local culture and lifestyle.
Xavier and Caroline are perfect quests. Friendly and reliable with great communication.
Very Independant with there own things to do.
Respectful of our home and left everything clean and tidy.
I would love to have them back anytime and highly recommend them as guests.
