We had a wonderful stay at your beautiful villa. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly and we enjoyed many superb meals cooked by Ayu. Made was courteous and prompt when providing us with transport. We would like to highly recommend your villa to anyone (and will certainly be recommending it to family and friends here in Australia). The 5 days we spent at Puri Jati were the most relaxing of our stay in Bali. Ayu was very helpful and we both loved the dolphin trip and I thoroughly enjoyed the massage she organised for me.
We are already planning when we can come back and who we can bring with us to share your little piece of paradise.
Dear Linda and Karl. Thanks so much for our stay at your amazing villa. We went to Bali and Gili for 5 weeks, and the best week of them all was at your villa! Traveling with our 3 kids, a daughter age 6 months, and two boys at age 4 years and 5 years, your villa is perfect, because it is big, it has both garden, pool and a lot of space, both to run around and relax in. Your staff are the best – great cooking, cleaning and smiling & friendly at all times. The staff were also great with the kids. And it was great to experience local life – Balinese workers in the ricefields and fishing. All the best recommendations from Denmark to you!
The beauty of this villa from entry to exit and top to bottom make up an environment that is so relaxing that one never needs, wants, or has to leave. The fact that the beach had to be cleaned everyday and is not a swimming beach is a non-factor because the pool and the grounds are so beautiful. Ayu and the staff fed and watered us such that our only decisions were poolside or seaside, water, juice, or cocktail, and reading, games or meditation. Oh, and to order a massage or not to order a massage. Abundant fresh fruit, coffee, eggs and toast greeted us every morning and traditional dishes or our requested meals were delicious and delightful every evening. One evening, a fisherman stopped by and offered us the catch of the day, a 2.5kg lobster. It went well with the chicken we had marinating for the BBQ that night! The pictures on the web indeed do this villa justice. The feng shui of the property and the friendliness of the staff create such a relaxed and beautiful place to reflect and recharge that it is a superb value.
This is an amazing place to relax and unwind. With so many photo opportunities, such lovely staff, the beach outside the back gate – what more could anyone ask for? Ayu has been wonderful and her cooking superb. I wish I could stay longer but sadly it is time to move on. Thank you for a great stay.
We had a very restful and enjoyable time at your home. All the staff was great and very helpful. Putu always greeted us with a smile each morning as he arrived to start his pool maintenance, Ayu was charming and did some grilled fish for us a couple of nights. I did a lot of cooking myself as I love to cook and shop the traditional markets. Made is a great driver and took us on a tour one day to a couple of Puras outside of Singaraja and also to Sawan to see the Gamelan factories. We had a good lunch at the Singaraja port and we had Made join us for a meal. Night watch Putu always greeted us when he arrived so we knew he would be doing his rounds.
We also met Ayu’s two adorable children and also when Made picked us up to take us to Poinciana Resort for last night, he brought his son with him for the ride. It was great.
We have spent a 2 week vacation with my kids (5 and 7) on Bali living in the villa from Karl and Linda. I can highly recommend staying in this beautiful house. Not only is the house located on a very nice location directly at the beach, the staff is absolutely fantastic! Ayu is a great cook and she was so nice with our children! Mega does a splendid job on the garden and the pool and if you like to go to the gym he is more then happy to take you there to work out! Made is a very reliable driver and knows a lot about the island. In short the staff is really service focused and will do anything in their power to make your stay an absolute dream. I never travel back to the same location twice as the world has too much to offer but in this case I am actually considering going back as we had such a great time. Karl and Linda are real professional very well organized. They supplied me with all the needed information prior to arrival on Bali (location of restaurants, doctor, hospital dentist, and all kind of phone numbers) not that we needed any medical assistance but it was reassuring to know all the information is available. So for anyone that is not looking for mass tourism, crowded streets and too much traffic this is the place to be!! The local people from the village near by are all super friendly and helpful. I can’t think of anything I would have liked to have seen different. From here a big thank you to Karl and Linda and their great staff!
We had a marvelous stay in this Lovina villa. The villa is magnificent, spacious and corresponds perfectly to the description. The garden is magnificently well maintained. Ayu is a great cook and made us many Balinese specialities that one cannot find in a restaurant. Made is a good driver and tourist guide. He understood our interests and suggested beautiful tours that suited us. Putu and Mega are adorable. All the staff were attentive to our every need to make our stay pleasant. All the practical details have been thought of, when one comes from far away. There is nothing to improve, everything is perfect. If we return one day to Bali, we will be sure to come back to this beautiful house. Thank you to all!
We have already recommended this house to our friends! Unique in that the house and facilities are modern, yet the location was somewhat remote and away from it all. Almost any group of travelers would be comfortable here as there are multiple areas to socialize or to be alone (3 verandas, TV room, bar, kitchen table, living room, beach front, etc…). While a bit smaller, the third bedroom that is separate from the main house is equally as comfortable, and provides a bit more privacy with its own bathroom. We arrived with two six month old babies and had everything we needed from cots to laundry to bottles of water at our disposal. Prior to our arrival Linda assured us that we had everything we needed. All the staff were most helpful, above and beyond their regular responsibility (feeding and playing with the babes, bargaining advice, pizza delivery…) Unfortunately the beach was not suitable for swimming at this time of year, so Made took us to a lovely beach where we could taste the salt. We also visited a temple, hot springs, waterfalls, and enjoyed walking around the local community. It was the rainy season, but when on a relaxing vacation an afternoon storm and crashing waves (while enjoying a massage or glass of wine) was just perfect. Ayu’s gado gado was our favorite dish. Thank you for such a relaxing vacation. Honorable mentions: the house has a cell phone, the DVD collection is exceptional, and drinking water, laundry detergent and mosquito repellant plugs are included.
