After staying at Lazy Dog Villa last October, we had to return again. This visit, we stayed for 7 days, and just didn't want to leave. LDV has become our home-away-from-home.It is the perfect place to relax, swim in the pristine pool, and enjoy everything that this spacous villa has to offer.The pool gets sun during the day, but there is plenty of shade in the garden to snooze on the sunlounges.
After being away a year, the villa is still in tip-top condition. Seeing Ayu & Nyoman (our housekeeper & her husband, the garden/poolman/driver) was like greeting old friends. Ayu does all the housekeeping/washing/ironing when they arrive each morning.
Of course when you first arrive, they are waiting with their huge smiles, beautiful flower arrangement, well stocked fridge, a very full bowl of fruit. All the rooms are beautiful & the bedrooms have wonderful, cold air-conditioning. The bedsheets are of excellent quality, the egyptian cotton towels are still gorgeous & fluffy.
In fact, I can't think of anything that I would change at Lazy Dog. I must also mention that every single shower, whichever one you choose, has super strong water pressure - something that can be lacking in many places.
Of course the location of the villa is excellent - a 25 metre walk up the driveway sees you right in the midst of shops/restaurants etc. If you know where "Flapjacks" sports bar/restaurant is, it's directly across the road.
Yet once inside the villa, it is very private & little noise can be heard.
Lazy Dog Villa has many repeat guests - once you stay there, it is extremely hard to leave.
Again, a big thank you to Ray, Suri, Ayu and Nyomen for welcoming us once again to "our home" - we'll see you next March!!!!
The Lazy Dog Villa was recommended by friends and it has been the highlight of our stay in Bali. The pool, living room and bedrooms were beautifully presented and we loved the fact that we had both indoor and outdoor bathrooms. We arrived to a fully stocked fridge with beer, fruit, juice, bacon and eggs , bread and milk. The gardener and driver, Nyomen took us to the supermarket to pick up supplies and also drove us around for a very small fee. His wife Ayu cleaned every day and did all our washing. We would arrive home to find our wardrobes full of beautifully washed and ironed clothes. Thank you Ayu and Nyomen for all your kindness. The area is surrounded by restaurants, bars , shops and it's a short walk to the beach. We will always remember our wonderful week.
Everything that everyone else said is accurate. Ray, Ayu and Nyomen were wonderful. The villa is immaculate. Everything about the stay there was low stress. There are tons of great restaurants nearby. The beach is a short walk. Nyomen can connect you to drivers who can take you on tours, etc. Ayu helped us find women who were able to come for poolside massages (with just a few hours notice). Thank you for a great stay! We hope to come back soon!
My only complaint were the nearby roosters -- who made noise 24 x 7 and made it a little difficult to sleep when we were already jet-lagged. Ear plugs would have been great, but we had kids with us, so didn't want to "not" be able to hear them in case of an emergency.
