Helen Milne, Fashion Designer
Helen gave us some great recommendations on where to eat and was generally very helpful and welcoming.
The house was very nice and airy. It was a cool place to hang out. It was also super close to the downtown shops and restaurants. Really right in the heart of it but without the noise.
Our stay in Helen's house was really enjoyable. It's absolutely beautiful, the location is good (near shops and restaurant and only a $3 taxiride away from beaches and beachclubs) and we've been looked after every day by Ida the lovely housekeeper, who cleaned the house, took our laundry and got us fruit from the market and even cut it for us. Helen was quick in the communication and super friendly. Alltogether I would definitely stay here again and absolutely recommend others to do the same :)
Helen was excellent at communicating, always responding to my messages & questions very quickly, which reassured me that whatever happened I would be able to get hold of her (key when you want to have a stress free & relaxing break). As it turned out I had no need to contact Helen during our 2 week stay - her house is lovely & worked brilliantly for our purposes. It was quiet & calm, but a 5 minute walk from the restaurants and main street. It is a 15 to 20 minute walk to the beach, but you can easily jump on a moped taxi to get you there in a couple of minutes for £1. All in all it was a fantastic trip and I would recommend Helen's house to anyone who wants the best of both worlds - peace and quiet within a nicely buzzing part of Bali.
Great house, super friendly host and assistant, and perfect stay experience. Couldn't have asked for better.
Stayed there for 12 nights and the place is as beautiful as the photos show. We didnt meet Helen but she left us great tips about restaurants and so on that were all really good. The place was clean and the location is not less than perfect. Lots of great restaurants and all you need just around the corner. Would recommend this place to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay at the heart of Seminyak with a walking distance to all you need.
We had a wonderful stay in Helens house. The villa is located on a small back road with no traffic around but still very central in Seminyak. We rented a scooter during our stay and that was perfect for getting around in the area and to the beach. Helen was very helpful and made everything very easy. We will definitely be back next time in Seminyak.
We had a great stay at Helen's lovely home in Seminyak. The house is safe, quiet and exactly as it is in the photos, we had no surprises whatsoever.
Helen was at home to greet us from the airport and gave us good advice on where to eat and visit while in Seminyak. Her home help Eda was kind and very attentive to our every need and made sure that we were having a happy time.
All in all, I would definitely choose this house again.
The host canceled this reservation 24 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Stayed in Helens house for 6 nights and it was a great experience! Helen was a great host, when we had a problem with the toilet, lights and lock she came immediately and tried to fix the situation. Location in seminyak was great, could walk to the best foods in seminyak most of the time. We had trouble finding the house at first, also recommended that you bring a torchlight as the road to the house is not litted. Many stray dogs around the area so just beware.
The house looks exactly like the pictures. Since it is an open concept there are a lot of Mosquitos but don't worry as mosquito coils are easily available in Bali. The housekeeper was great and would tidy up the bed for us but unfortunately the towels was not changed everyday and floors were not cleaned often as well. There is no safe in the house but there are keys for you to lock in every room.
Overall the house is worth it for the price.
Good communication, and great directions to villa - accommodation was nice, and the location was great. Very close to the hustle and bustle of Seminyak, but located in a quiet pocket, which made it all seem miles away... Small issue with electricity and water that was quickly resolved, and Helen made it clear she was always available to assist with any issues.
Good communication throughout and very pleasant.
Helen was a great guest - the communication went super easy with her, she always responded my mails quickly and promptly. She was also flexible with the check-in, she understood the house rules and she kept very good care of my apartment, she left it clean and tidy. I highly recommend her to other guests and she's always warmly welcome to stay in my apartment again!
Unfortunately we did not meet Helen as the cottage is 2 hours away from Cape Town and caretaker looks after it. The booking process was easy friendly with her
Helen was an excellent guest. No complaints :)
Helen's a great guest - she's relaxed and gets on with her own thing. Happy to have her back anytime.
Helen was a delightful guest. She was very clear about her plans and I could not have asked for a more gracious, responsive and responsible visitor! I'd welcome her back at any point!
