“Amazing open living! In an ideal location!”
Reviewed 26 February 2013 for a stay in April 2012

The villa was just gorgeous, it made us feel so relaxed and ready to just have a real holiday!
The pool and surrounds were huge.
The staff were gorgeous and accomodating to all our needs, we would walk down stairs to a spotless villa, with a breakfast ready to go. All the amenities were there for us, and everything was in beautiful condition.
Thank you so much Adam, I will definately come back and recommend it to anyone i know who is visiting.
One last thig, the location was ideal, in the heart of Seminyak, not too isolated from the shopping area, and not to far from the beach bars and resturants. Perfect! Gorgeous little boutiques right outside our door step.

Thanks again!

“Little oasis tucked away from the hustle and bustle of seminyak square”

We (family of 5) recently stayed at the villa. Bit of an eye opener when we arrived by car (pre-arranged airport pickup was very smooth). The traffic from the airport is something else. Cars, scooters and pedestrians everywhere. Though remarkably in our 7 days in seminyak we didn't see one accident. Still find that hard to believe.

Anyway back to the villa. Fantastic pool, the centerpiece of the villa. Large and warm! I did see that ander review was critical of the temperature. It was certainly warm enough for us. And what a treat after spending many hot days wandering around town. Rooms are spacious as were the bathrooms. Yes the water pressure is not the best. But given the environment (read lack of infrastructure) it is more than adequate. The villa has all the modern necessities, namely wifi (free) , flat screen tv's, comfy couches, etc...
A very large open plan lounge area surrounding the pool. It is very private with no other properties able to pry.

We had no issues with mozzies. All beds had mosquito nets and insect repellant was provided.

Probably the best selling point of the villa is the staff. Komang and Ria were fantastic. Ria would arrive each morning promptly at 7am, Komang at 8am - as she would shop for breakfast items en route. We were able to order pancakes, omeletes, cereals, fruit, nasi goreng, French toast, etc... There was no shortage. If we ran out of milk for example, one of them would dash up the road for more supplies. We also needed some more immodium at some point. Shortly afterwards Komang arrived back wi some more tablets.
If ever we needed massages booked (100,000 rps for a one hour full body massage) , restaurant reservations made, Komang looked after it.

The villa is approximately 300m from seminyak square. A 5-10 min walk to the beach (places like ku de ta or la Lucciola). You are at the start of the shopping strip that heads away from the beach. So cannot fault the location (beachfront would be ideal - but compared to the rest...). Mini markets are also nearby if required (bintangs for example!)

We did arrange for an in house chef on two nights. Just like Adam mentioned to us prior - all we paid was the actual cost of the ingredients and aud25 for the chef (we felt guilty and gave them more!). We enjoyed the experience and ended up with plenty of leftovers (for lunch the next day).

We would gladly recommend this villa to families (could easily accommodate 10 people) or a group of friends.

“Great roomy layout and location, excellent staff”

We stayed here for 10 days and it was fantastic. The location was a 4 minute walk to seminyak square, 5 minutes to the restaurant strip and maybe 6 minutes to grocer n grind and so close to everything you could need.
The villa was well laid out for us (2 x couples and 2 single girls) and we were never in each others faces and had plenty of couch, pool and sunbed room.
The owner Adam was in contact whilst booking and even while staying there so there were never any dramas or issues - to anyone worried about paying for the villa before arrival rest assured it should not be an issue.
The staff were always friendly, helpful and never intrusive and the villa was immaculate at all times.
I doubt there is anything this spacious out there in the same price range

Thank you for leaving a review. We are glad you loved the property, location, staff and the breakfast they cook each day. The staff enjoyed servicing you all.

Thank you for bringing to our attention that you did not have enough hot water when everyone showered at the same time. We have since installed another hot water unit. We have also installed mosquito nets on the single beds.

“Fantastic stay at a great villa - highly recommended”
Reviewed 14 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewers comments! I've just had 5 nights at Villa de la Vie with 6 others and we had a fantastic stay. The villa is very centrally located in a quiet lane behind Seminyak Square - smack bang between Eat Street, Grocer & Grind and Bodyworks.

The villa was exactly as shown in the pictures and personally I think was even more impressive in real life! The airport pickup was easy and the lovely staff made our stay very enjoyable - the villa was kept spotless everyday and it did not feel as if the staff were intruding or hanging around, they were very sweet and helpful. We enjoyed our morning breakfast of banana pancakes, omelette, toast, fresh fruit and bacon.

Having wi-fi access was great and there were heaps of channels on the pay tv so we were able to watch lots of the Olympics!!

The rooms are all spacious as are the ensuites and we hjad more than enough space for 7 adults.

All in all an awesome villa stay with all the mod cons and nice touches you would expect. I would highly recommend this villa for anyone looking for a well priced, confortable, centrally located villa.
