We only have great things to say about Garry, his villa and staff :) We are a New Zealand family of 4 (two children 6 yrs & 8 yrs) We were already on holiday in Bali, and made a very last minute booking, due to other accommodation not working out. Garry approved our request to book within minutes, and passed on the details of his Manager, who also texted us straight back.
We arrived at the villa within 30mins, and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. The villa was perfect, so modern and new, exactly as the pictures and even better. We were very impressed to find the fridge stocked with mixers, the bathrooms had beautiful shampoo, conditioners, soaps and lotions. There were even white robes and slippers in the wardrobes, and insect repellent and sun screen in the bedrooms too. More like a hotel than an Airbnb villa!
It was great to have breakfast included. The staff took our breakfast order and asked what time we'd like it to be served the following morning. The breakfast menu was a nice mix of western and Asian breakfast food. Every morning the staff arrived 30 mins before the breakfast time we requested, and quietly went about cooking and preparing, and it was always on the table in perfect timing. It was delicious and beautifully presented.
The pool and outside garden area was lovely, with 4 sun loungers and a covered day bed too. The sarongs and pool towels provided were of a high quality. The pool and garden got sun most of the day, and our kids especially appreciated how warm the water was, and stayed in playing for hours at a time.
The villa was nice and quiet, yet close to the action. It's a 30 sec walk to one end of the Seminyak boutiques & cafes (although the best shops and cafes nearer to Seminyak Square are a short taxi ride away). It was around a 10 min walk to the Bintang Supermarket, and 20 mins to Seminyak Beach. We tended to taxi to the beach with the kids due to the heat. Just walk half a minute to the main road and flag down a cab - easy! We'd be at the beach within a few minutes.
Overall we had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend it. Thanks Garry, we'll be back!
