Very nice staff (People are generally friendly there). Double Rooms are next to Villas and share garden, thin walls, can get a bit noisy. Rates are too high in regard of the rooms. Bathrooms not so clean. Nice was drinking water in room and breakfast delivered to room. Pool was fine. Nice property however badly managed.


Dissapointed. We booked this place mostly because of the 24 hours reception, due to our arrival at 2am. We booked it the same day, but when we arrived exhausted from a 15h journey, they didn't expect us (even though we had emailed them with extra info AND said the arrival time at hostelworld). We had to find the CLOSED reception and wake up the security guy. Fortunately they had an extra room (no one expected us), and we got a place to sleep after waiting 45 min. Nice people, badly organized.


Terrific! After being exhausted from long travels, when we arrived at this place it was sooo refreshing! OMG were we happy to be there. The villas are so cool. Something you could only find in Bali, but with all the things from home. AC, WIFI, Flatscreen TV, Hot water plus an awesome free breakfast. Pool was really clean too. Best ever! Thank you :)

impressed with the inner decoration and furniture. Could use some bath-rug/floor-mat in the bathroom. Maybe since it's rainy season, the pool wasn't in very good condition. Otherwise, very happy with the stay.


Absolutely great place to stay, mainly because what you get for the money is an excellent value. They have a big, clean, relaxing pool, which we pretty much lived at :) staff was really nice and helpful, WiFi worked well...AC, fridge, and TV too. There's also an electric mosquito zapper, so we didn't have any mozzies around. The place is very Balinese in character, but all the amenities felt modern and worked. Location is perfect, secluded, yet right smack in the middle of everything you need.

Thank you so much for your kind words and very glad you enjoyed your time with. Glad the pool and the facilities suited your needs. Very Nice to host you. We very much appreciate your coming and thanks for your kindness. See you next time. Sincerely, Guest Relations


Staff were friendly. The mattress was pretty uncomfortable and the bathroom was a bit dirty. But, for the price not too bad a deal for a single room. It's off the street a bit, so very easy to sleep at night. The Wifi was very good.


We stayed at there for 3 nights. Nobody cleaned our room during entire stay! They even didn't throw away our garbage, so our room got pretty smelly at the end. But the biggest problem was really thin walls. We were so unlucky as our neighbors were drinking until 5 am every night! It was impossible to sleep at all! Houses itself are nice. Each house has 2 rooms and share a yard. But I'd recommend this place only if staff improves on cleaning as well as if you book entire house, i.e. 2 rooms.

Hi Anna,thank you again for your booking. we're glad you liked our villas.About the cleaning, at the beginning of your stay, your friend or maybe boyfriend in your group asked us not to clean. Otherwise our full-time cleaning staff CLEANS EVERY ROOM EVERY SINGLE DAY Including new linens,towels,soap,free coffee & tea & anti-insect as needed. It's too bad the other guests kept you up. We have 24 hour staff and we do ask all guests to be respectful during their entire stay.Thank you for recommend!


DO NOT STAY HERE. We lost our funds for the 2nd night's stay. Requested our money back, it was not returned. The outer yard was just a pile of dirt. The room was absolutely filled with insects, and there was no bug spray or bug net on the bed. The room? Uglier than a prison cell. Bathroom? Disgusting. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. We woke up completely covered in bug bites and ran for the hills. Worst night's stay in Bali by leaps and bounds. I'll be sharing this all over the Internet.

Sorry to say, the most out of control, offensive, outright terrible guest we have ever encountered. Worst guest ever by leaps and bounds. Thank you so much to all our other WONDERFUL Guests. :) We APPRECIATE YOU SO VERY MUCH.
