My family and I stayed for a week in mid-September in Mark’s Villa in Pemuteran, and I have to say, the house and the estate are absolutely stunning. So much space, and so lovingly decorated: beautiful garden and plants, a great swimming-pool, ponds with sea lilies and lots of art in the house itself. Also, all the amenities you need to help relax - even books and DVDs were there to use. The best though was the staff: Rini made wonderful breakfasts, lunches and dinners, cleaned, and very affectionately babysat our kids. Put took care of all our needs for tours, gave advice, answered all our questions and was generally very nice to talk to.
Since we were here with two little kids, there was only one downside, and that was the walk to the beach, which took us with the stroller about 25 minutes. Here, a motorbike or similar is advisable! That way, you also don’t need to spend too much time walking past the barking dogs on the way. :-)
But, apart from that, we had a wonderful time in a beautiful place with lovely people around us. Thank you, Mark, for opening up your house for us!!
