Many families have become loyal returning customers. There are hundreds of reviews at the villas and many are posted online (We are posting here one of the recent review left by a seasoned traveler: “We had the most AMAZING time at your gorgeous property. We can’t stop talking or thinking about it. It was so relaxing and beautiful. The staff was fantastic; Ayu helped us out with every request.
We have been to Bali around 16 times since 1997, staying at guesthouses, luxury hotels, and many different villas. Your place was definitely our favorite villa that we have rented. I loved all the antiques — much more my preference than all the modern luxury villas popping up — and villas were so well laid out. The garden is beautiful, and the views of course, stunning. Also, we have stayed in Candi Dasa a few times, but this was our first time to your village. We loved it! Nice locals, and definitely more clean and well-kept than many villages in the area. Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of heaven with us! We hope to stay there again someday”. Amy B.
