  • Nice home but difficult owner

    "While this is a lovely home, renters should be aware of a few things: 1. We made a last minute booking and the owner quoted us a price for 7 people. After we paid his VRBO invoices for the quoted amount and arrived at the villa, the owner sent his onsite manager to collect an additional USD 150 cash for an extra person charge, and threatened to call the police if we didn’t pay. I have 7 emails showing his quote and my payment for 7 ppl yet he accused me of playing games (he was very rude and would not listen to my explanations, just ranted). While this fee is noted in his listing, we asked for the price for 7 people and that’s what we were quoted, invoiced and paid for. I insisted on getting a VRBO invoice not paying cash and paid the extra fee so we wouldn’t get thrown out (with no phone service we couldn’t reach VRBO for help), thinking VRBO would help the owner do the right thing and refund us later but it turns out VRBO doesn’t mediate disputes. It is bad business to charge extra after you have agreed on a price, paid and moved into the house. 2. The extra bed they provided for the 7th person is a small, uncomfortable cot. 3. The house is at the bottom of a steep driveway, so not ideal for people with difficulty walking uphill in extreme heat (most taxis wouldn't drive down it so we had to walk it many times). 4. The promised stereo sound system was missing and the TV’s speaker was so cracked we couldn’t hear what was being said. There is no cell service and WIFI is extremely limited (we had to go to the café across the street to get access). We chose this villa over other options because it advertised these amenities. 5. We saw mice (and droppings) in the kitchen and bedroom. 6. Otherwise, it is a beautiful home with a great pool and incredible views and the staff are wonderful. Good location – a bit away from the town (10 min drive) so quiet but within walking distance of restaurants and beaches."

  • Homely Villa with Wonderful Staff

    "This older style villa is an oasis of peace in bustling Seminyak. The staff are so attentive and helpful. Tom met with us and explained the workings of the villa on our arrival. There are two bedrooms ground floor and three upstairs. An apartment is attached to the villa where Toms son Morgan was staying. There are two gates to access the property, the back gate is to a laneway which is a short walk to the beach. The front gate accesses a gang which takes you to the Bintang Supermarket on Legian street and the other way to Jl Camplung Tanduk. Take a small torch with you if walking back to the villa at night. We all loved Nangas cooking, she gave us a lesson on some of the traditional Balinese dishes. Ketut is the villa driver who was happy to fit in with our constantly changing plans. Villa is clean and roomy, pool lovely. Do not hesitate to book this villa if you are looking for somewhere quiet and central to stay in Seminyak. Thank you Tom and staff."
