We had a wonderful time at Linda & Karl's Villa. Although we did not meet them in person, I can tell by the condition of the villa and the attentiveness of their wonderful staff that they care very much that their guests have the best vacation possible. Linda has put together a binder full of tips on local sights, things to do, & restaurants near by. It also includes numbers of people to call should you get sick, need a driver, etc. Her villa is thoughtfully furnished with great A/C in all the bedrooms & the upstairs living room (which we missed when we moved to the other villa we booked that did not have A/C in the living room & then we found ourselves congregating in one bedroom!) We enjoyed the large collection of DVD's for lazy nights in. It is a beautiful property that is very well furnished (beds very comfortable). It is right on the beach but unfortunately there was quite a bit of rubbish around the beach (unfortunately this seemed to be common for all but the more touristy beaches in Bali). However the villa's beautiful pool made up for that. Again the staff keeps everything in tip top shape they were all very helpful. Ayu, cooks & keeps the house tidy & was also helpful in making dinner reservations & grocery shopping. Mega keeps the grounds & pool sparkling clean while Putu kept an eye on things at night. Just to note, there is little in the way of walking distance so it is best to use a driver to explore Bali. Made, the recommended driver for the villa was very helpful in planning our days. Linda is also very quick to respond to any questions before & during our trip. All in all, a great stay in Bali!
