While living on Bali for 2 months, I spent 16 beautiful days in this charming villa. Compared to other places you could stay at, I would highly recommend you to stay at this one! It feels very homey if you travel alone, the place including tropical balinese garden is well taken care of, the bed has a high-quality mattress, air-conditioning works so well you can turn it off all the time because in a minute it can make the room fresh and cool. Also, although the internet stopped working and Silvia tried to repair it as soon as possible, it has a good speed and allows you to work comfortably, which is mostly an issue in other homestays/hotels. The best of it all is the bathroom really, it is spacious and has a great architecture: although most of it covered by roof so you do not have to worry about the rain, you get to enjoy a luxurious shower under the sky, standing on a beautifully designed rock shower floor. Wish I could have just taken that one with me for all my travels around Bali. :)
There is also a housekeeper coming to clean the place and help you with anything you need 6 days a week. She has a very kind heart and I enjoyed meeting a good person like her.
Silvia is a great host, I was lucky to meet such a fascinating person as her. When I arrived my luggage was lost, I only had winter stuff on me, she gave me some of her shoes and clothes and we went for a dinner. She also checked in with me now and then if everything is ok and if there is anything I needed. She is Italian and speaks beautiful proficient English so no worries about the communication.
The villa is situated in a very vibrant neighborhood with lots of good-quality restaurants for tourists, but kind of too far to walk to the beach, I would recommend renting a scooter. If you are worried about riding yourself, you can get a taxi or get a gojek and uber apps which are way cheaper to use. Gojek is even less expensive than renting a scooter yourself. The lovely housekeeper can also help you out and give you a ride.
Thank you Silvia for everything and wish a lovely stay for every person that will visit your home.
