Airbnb need to come up with a six star rating just for this place
Wow, what can say. Airbnb need to come up with a six star rating just for this place. The villa is stunning with a fantastic pool. The photos don't do it justice. Michael was a fantastic host and even upgraded his cable package so I could watch the World Cup. We would stay again in a heart beat.
The living areas open onto the lush, landscaped gardens, 9x6m swimming pool and sunbathing deck with poolside loungers and bean bags. The pool has steps leading to a shallow end around waist-high, sloping down to a depth of 175cm. Because the pool has infinity edges it cannot be fenced if you have children.
Many villas in Seminyak are shaded by high walls or double-story buildings. We get all-day sun year-round on the pool for a guaranteed Bali tan.
Complimentary pool towels are provided and there is even a secret outdoor shower in the garden.
On either side of the sunbathing deck are 2 semi-detached bedrooms, with the master bedroom in a detached building on the other side of the pool, ensuring privacy for all.
The 3 spacious bedrooms are equipped with very comfortable king-size beds, quality linen, oversized extra pillows, brand new powerful air-conditioning, ceiling fan, black-out curtains, built-in wardrobes and drawers and feature 6.5m high Balinese timber ceilings.
Each bedroom has a large, high-quality, anchored security safe with a digital keypad large enough to store laptops and bulky camera equipment.
Each of the ensuite bathrooms features an outdoor shower, and a large marble bathtub and comes equipped with towels, a blow-dryer, complimentary body wash, shampoo, conditioner, mosquito spray, toothpaste, and hand wash.
The villa has housekeeping service daily and is spotlessly cleaned by our experienced and trustworthy staff, with beds made every day and the kitchen cleaned so you don’t have to lift a domestic finger.
Towels and linens are changed every 3 days, or more frequently if necessary by arrangement.
The complimentary breakfast includes smoothie bowls made with fresh fruit, yoghurt and granola, toast, tea and coffee (anything extra can be supplied at guest cost) and is served in the dining room of the villa every morning. You can arrange breakfast for a time that suits you, and if you have any special requests we will do our best to please.
For groceries, we can either provide you with a shopping service (just tell us what you want in advance and our staff will do the shopping for you) or you can shop yourself at the local supermarket 8 mins walk or a short taxi ride away.
If you don’t feel like venturing out for meals, our staff can arrange to have local Indonesian dishes brought to the villa at cost and you can order from nearly any restaurant in Bali using Go-Jek for home delivery.
We provide a local laundry service for guests at the cost of IDR20k per kilo. The laundry service we use means you can get clothes cleaned and returned the next day at local prices. We provide services using local providers to ensure that you enjoy affordable luxury while supporting the local community.
We have 2 brand new massage beds, making it easy to experience a luxuriating Balinese massage in the privacy of your own villa by professional therapists from our favourite spa at low, local prices.
Each evening the staff will light over a dozen citronella candles in locally made lanterns of different shapes and colours creating a romantic, serene ambience. It is quite an experience to arrive home after watching the sunset or having a private dinner in a candle-lit villa.
Our mission is for you to relax and enjoy, either lounging around by the pool, relaxing with a massage, or going on excursions to the beautiful countryside, waterfalls, rice fields and markets that Bali has to offer. We can arrange a private driver and car and local prices – simply contact the owner after making a booking.
If you would like to indulge in a rose petal bath, our staff can arrange the petals and light the lanterns for you. If you want to indulge yourself in affordable luxury, Villa Koru is for you.
You will be met at the Villa upon arrival. Our staff has had many years of experience in Villa management and will arrange most things for you with no fuss.
The owner is contactable via email or text and has a well-earned reputation for arranging unique, customised itineraries for guests from all parts of the globe with his extensive local knowledge of the best places to go, from high-end restaurants to local cafes, beaches, bars, clubs and sight-seeing tours.
Check-in is from 3 pm and check-out is until 11 am. Unfortunately, we cannot store your luggage. If you would like to arrange an early check-in (available from 8 am) or a late check-out (available until 10 pm) then please ask after booking.
If there is availability I will block out the villa the day before, or after, for a fee of 50% of the daily rate which you can pay after arrival. Then you have uninterrupted and exclusive use of the villa up until your late-night flight or early arrival.
Villa Koru is set on a 500m2 enclosed block in a very safe, secure and quiet cul-de-sac in Seminyak.
This really is the perfect location, with the essentials within walking distance and easy access to the main arterial route (Sunset Rd) means you can get pretty much anywhere easily and quickly, especially if venturing out on day trips to attractions around Ubud and beyond (Monkey Forest, Elephant Cave, Tanah Lot, Tegalalang Ricefields, Danu Beratan).
Our location is perfect and counts for a lot when traffic is heavy – staying in a villa or hotel accommodation closer to the beach sounds like fun until you spend hours in slow crawling traffic trying to get home in the narrow, congested roads and laneways typical of the tourist strip.
Only 2 mins walk to a 24-hour convenience store, 3 mins walk to the Orchard Bar and Restaurant (with some of the best live music in Bali) and 8 mins walk to the well-known Bintang supermarket. Double Six and Seminyak beaches are 26 mins walk or 8 min by taxi and its only 26 min walk or 7 min by taxi to Jalan Kayu Aya (Eat Street in Oberoi).
It’s a short ride to well-known Bali Beach Clubs (Ku De Ta, Potato Head, Cocoon), upmarket restaurants (Sardine, Metis, Merah Putih, Sarong), bars and clubs (La Favela, Champagne Bar, Motel Mexicola) and beach bars (La Plancha, 707).
It’s an easy 30 min drive up Sunset Rd from the airport.
We provide one complimentary private car and driver for airport transfers for up to 4 guests with luggage. If you need a second car we can arrange this for a low cost of IDR250k (around AUD$25) each way. This is very cheap and you won’t find it better at the airport where the taxi touts can be quite aggressive.
If you have guests arriving at different times you can also book their separate airport transfers from my travel advice website (or even a minivan for extra comfort if travelling with extra luggage or children).
For stays of 5 days or longer drop-off to the airport is also complimentary (same price as pick-up if a 2nd car is required).
You can hire a private car and driver (a 6-seater air-conditioned SUV) for the length of your stay so you can see the sights and attractions, go to the beaches, rice terraces, temples, dinner etc at your convenience and without the hassle of arranging transport for each individual trip.
If not, taxis and other local transport options are very cheap. Grab has gained popularity and is recommended.
I have a Honda Scoopy 110cc scooter for your complimentary use during your stay. It’s really useful for popping around to the convenience store or doing some small grocery shopping. Guests *must* produce a valid unrestricted motorbike license and a copy of travel insurance on arrival before being allowed to use it.
More scooter or motorbike rentals can be hired locally for you (here are some tips for renting a scooter in Bali), although we recommend this only if you have experience and a valid motorcycle license, as Bali makes a poor training ground for those new to riding.
The villa has a secure, covered carport with enough room for a car or several motorbikes.
The best meal of the trip – would absolutely recommend!!!!!
Our stay at Villa Koru was better than expected! We would highly recommend. The home is beautiful furnished with plenty of space (four guests,) one couple shared a room and two other rooms had one person each. The rooms were spacious and clean, with gigantic beds, each room was fit with great air conditioning and smart tvs and each had their own beautiful outdoorsy full bathroom/ en-suite with shower, bath toilet and double vanity. Additional to the other toilet area. The salt water pool was massive and to die for, we did not want to leave the pool !! They also had large bean bags and lounge chairs and of course our blow up friend ‘Florence’ the flamingo. The open space area had everything you needed including complimentary fruit juice on arrival and filtered water. The open space was cool fit with a strong portable fan and a large ceiling fan, we did not feel hot but comfortable considering the Bali heat! This space also including large lounge furniture dining table and smart tv. We took up the offer of organising massages at the villa and boy what a treat! Mia our wonderful housekeeper organised it all for us, no hassle. With the talented masseuses visiting three times in a week for 1 hour full body I can confidently say we all went home feeling super relaxed! We also took up the offer of Mia cooking us a BEAUTIFUL traditional Indonesian dinner, of delicious family recipes, which blew our minds and was by far the best meal of the trip - would absolutely recommend!!!!! The villa would not be complete if I did not mention the wonderful staff Putu and Mia, Putu ensured our pool was cleaned and transferred us from and to the airport, his bubbly friendly personality and local advice was very useful and entertaining, we enjoyed having him around. Mia is the core reason we enjoyed our stay at Villa Koru, she kept us well fed, kept all space impeccably tidy and clean. She brought us groceries when needed, gave us local tips and organised any transport or additional needs that we needed. She is fantastic! Each morning Mia cooked us a delicious breakfast including smoothie bowls different each day, a fresh juice and eggs your way with toast and some sides, fantastic way to start each day. She made our stay so easy and carefree. Michael (host) communicated very effectively and responded very quickly to any queries. From direction through the airport to providing the contact details for all staff, his organisation and communication really streamlined the process from booking to checkout. Michael also allowed us additional late check out, which we greatly appreciated! Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home, we will be back again soon!!
