Has anyone booked a Villa through www.poolvillas.com They seem to have quite afew Villas around all parts of Seminyak & Oberoi. Thanks for any info!
I have never heard of this booking agent but there are so many in Bali now that yet another one doesn't surprise me. Do some more research though before you send them your money. Why do you want to use them and not a more established, well known one?
Hi ilab, this is the site that my friends have been dealing with so I'm just checking things out for them. Villa Chic ended up not big enough for them & this company has other Villas they have suggested. Villa Metana in Oberoi is the one they have decided on now but I'm hoping someone may know it or at least the booking company? Cheers
Why not check top left of Bali Forum page under "vacation rentals".
You deal with the owners directly.
We booked our villa in Seminyak with this company - they apparently are all connected with Balion.com - very good to deal with - although I think you need to pay the deposit by international bank transfer (unless each affiliated company is different) and you will get charged a fee by your bank & also the bank at the other end takes a fee as well. We had no problems with the villa (Villa Amore Uno) and everything was fine - we paid the balance on arrival.
Other companies will take c/c or paypal - try villabalivillas.com just to name one.
Also, many of the villas listed are advertised in flipkey or vacation rentals, where you can deal directly with the owners.
Hope this helps,
Thankyou Sandy for feed back, friends feel much better about booking now. They are only asking for a deposit. I will be checking out the Villa when I'm there in May for them also. Cheers to all on T/A Cheers
Thanks ilab for great tips, yes scrolled through all 733 rentals on tab then narrowed them down to area & bedrooms, have been looking for over a month. Being peak season, villas with central aircon were scarce & so many were unavailable for June. Then to find one in the right location, well you know the story well. Your feedback has been fantastic. Your crawl reports are always the first thing we check, keep up your great work! Cheers
Anyone stayed at Villa Metana Oberoi ?(4 bedroom) Any feed back would be great! Cheers,
hi, i have been working with poolvillas for several bookings, having a few villas myself to manage and so far i have always been happy. they are actually quite big, having offices in Spain and Holland too. So you can trust them. hope that helps. cheers, nicole
Howlettwa, have you stayed at villa metana? How come i couldn't found any reviews about this villa...
Yes friends have, this is an excellent choice of villa! Behind the Hurley Store on Jl Laksman, they were very happy! Quiet, safe & secure even though its in the heart of Seminyak. Good staff. Cheers
