“Wonderful experience from start to finish”
The villa was perfect for us - all our children loved the pool and playing in the garden, there was space for us all (us, our four children, and my mother), and it was so easy to live there during our holiday. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were (even our children, who usually don't notice). The gardens were glorious and impeccable, the pool and villa were cleaned to a very high standard and with care and courtesy every day (even the day we were checking out late). Agung gave us a thorough and efficient orientation to the property so we felt at home right away, and was always on hand to arrange whatever extras we needed (laundry, car with driver, taxi, wi-fi access, even arranging to collect our empty laundry bag that was accidentally left behind). Drinkable water was conveniently provided in limitless quantity - one less thing to worry about. The walk up the gang if you want to hail a taxi was a bit far for our smaller children (3 and 5), but no problem for the rest of us (our older children are 9 and 13). Water pressure was low, but didn't affect us. Wi-fi a bit unreliable, but available anywhere else we went so not too much of a problem. A special meal cooked in our villa was enjoyed by all, and I highly recommend this service to anyone using the villa. Close enough to everything you need and far enough away from immediate bustle to feel relaxed and secluded. Outstanding! And great value.
Response from the owner Well this certainly made out day Judith and the staff are all smiles today. Thank you so much for recognizing all the "little" thing we try to do to make your vacation a true relaxing experience.We finally discovered the WIFI problem was intermittent interference from a new neighbor's WIFI so we have changed the band we are on and it is all fixed. Took us a while to figure it out and my apologies for any inconvenience. We hope to see you all back again and don't forget to remind me to apply your 10% "Repeat Offenders Discount". Hi also from Agung and the gang... they just loved your family and it was a pleasure to have you with us at Villa Safari. Cheers Lizzie
“Very quiet, private, but needs a reno badly. Great staff.”
The villa is very,very private,quiet.Gardens,pool lovely.Best asset.Rooms,bathroom big and spacious.The kitchen very basic.No microwave or oven.Old kitchen equipment.No hot water in kitchen or bathroom basins.Reminded me of a holiday house you have on the coast where you send all your hand-me-down household appliances and furniture.Tv very small and only one decent English channel.Not very comfy lounge area.Hard and thin cushions.Needs a big comfy daybed. Kitchen, dining and lounge one big open area.Bedrooms-needs a good clean and better furniture.The bed, pillows(only get one each)suitable,but no headboard so at night you can't sit up to read in bed.No telly in room.Mosquito net adequate, but in need of a new one.Aircon kept room cool.No views.Room was dark, musty and damp.Light bulbs sit high up not making for good internal lighting.Wardrobe doors don't close properly.Safe in working order.Bathroom tired and old fashioned.No hot water in small basin.Just a weird setup.Such huge space, but is given a really small towel rail and basin.Didn't make sense.Terrible shower-no pressure,hot then cold.We hate bath-showers and thought this had an outdoor shower,but it turned out to be just an open space with the wall covered in damp and green mould.There was a hanging blind, tried to close the blind,but that fell apart due to being rotten.Same with the blind in the dining area.Outdoor furniture falling apart.Other furniture paint stained,chipped,old,wobbly.This place has a lot of potential with a bit of modernising it can be fantastic.Initially we were so upset, we wanted to leave.Got used to it at the end.Ants everywhere and do cover up at night with mossie spray which you are given.It is close to everything and within walking distance.Take a torch when walking at night as there is hardly any lights on the laneway.Saw the staff as they come around between 11-12 to clean.Lovely and friendly.For $20 they arrange transport to airport.Manager very informative and such an asset.
Response from the owner Thank you for your input. We are sorry that the villa did not meet your expectations. Many of our repeat guests just love the villa, because it is the more traditional open-style living where one can really relax and have some space. We do have 49 channel Satellite TV available and regret that you did know how to use. As your photos show we also have headboards on the beds. It would perhaps be helpful to all if you expressed your concerns at the time so that we could try to address. Our prior guests called it "paradise" so I guess there is a style for everyone. True the style here is more traditional but it gives a real Bali feel to it. I guess we have been reluctant to make too many changes because we would also then need to adjust the prices. At from AUD$179 per night with sleeping of up to 8 this villa offers real value to families and groups. Other 3 bedroom villas on the same gang are more modern, but have less space and are $450 per night in this area. We will pass on your kind words to the staff. Cheers, Lizzie
“Cosy, clean, very friendly staff and location is excellent!”
We stayed at Villa Safari for 1 week. We were were looked after by agung and the team there. They looked after us very well. We looked forward to their big smiles in the morning. The location is very central - walking distance to everything in Seminyak. The bedrooms are very spacious. We had a lovely stay there.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for sharing your experience with future guests. We all work hard to ensure our guests have a wonderful trouble free experience. Cheers Lizzie
This was a great rental for our family as they all had their own space. The pool was fantastic. The inside living area is a little uncomfortable for relaxing. The satff were awesome and very friendly and extremely helpful. Close to shops and restuarants. The beach is a long walk though
Response from the owner Thank you so much for sharing your experience at Villa Safari with others. It is so helpful,. I will pass your kind words along to the staff. Expect the biggest Bali smile form them. I will check out the living area layout and see if we can make it more comfortable. We hope to see you all again and thank you for choosing to stay with us. Cheers Lizzie
“Super family holiday”
Right from the time we were collected from the airport, our stay at Villa Safari could not have been better. We were given a great orientation on arrival by argun and then spent the next 7 days either playing in the pool with our kids or shopping in Seminyak, a short walk from the Villa, or touring around with Nyoman, the villa's driver. The staff are friendly and keep the villa spotless. The tours with Nyoman were terrific and great value for money. There were absolutely no problems from start to finish. I would recommend a stay at any of Lizzie's villas.
Response from the owner Thanks Craig for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers. I passed your review on to my fabulous staff and you should see the smile on their faces. They are so proud of their efforts and nothing makes them happier than to see our guests relaxed, laughing and enjoying themselves. Please come back soon. Cheers Lizzie
“Wonderful staff and a good place to stay”
We are just back from 10 days at Villa safari.(Sept 1 to 10) The staff here are polite and helpful and know how to make your stay special. Agung takes care of the villa, his English is impeccable and he is a truly lovely man. We found we could ring him at any time and he would have all the answers or help that we might need. We loved the pool, I think the grand kids would have spent every day there if they could. There are pink and yellow frangipanis everywhere. The cleaning staff go above and beyond to make the villa spotless and insist on doing everything for you if you are there when they clean. The platter of fresh fruit lasted almost the whole stay and the drinking water was kept filled up so we had no worries about safe water for teeth brushing etc. Agung's wife will take your clothes to the laundry and come back with the bill the next day(about $4 for a shopping bag full of laundry!). The villa has a day driver, Nyoman, who will take you anywhere you want to go in Bali at a really good price and will tell you which places to go to. He put together some great day tours for us, I think the most expensive was about $A55 for a whole day out. We enjoyed his company very much. It was also wonderful to have him on hand when one of the kids needed medical treatment. He stayed with us until almost 10pm that day. I swear Nyoman knows how to make a 7 seater car shrink to fit into all the tight places. I felt absolutely safe in his hands and if you have ever been to Bali you will know that isn't usual as the roads are mad. He is an amazingly good driver but not only that he is also a really lovely person. He taught us a few phrases and helped us with our pronunciation so to Nyoman "Schumacker" - Om Swastiastu and Terina Kasih. I was very sad to say goodbye to the villa staff as they felt like family by the time we left. Thanks also to Lizzie, who is great to deal with and provides a lot of extra information on how to stay safe when booking online.
Response from the owner Thanks you so much for taking the time to share your experience with others. I can't tell you how big the smiles were on the faces of our staff who I see as "National Treasures". We all strive to make the our guests holidays more than they could hope for and truly appreciate the feedback. We look forward to having you stay with us again. Cheers Lizzie
“Great time in Villa Safari!”

The pool is great. The staff is friendly and helpful, always reactive to your remarks or requests. Thks again for the miror ! Would definitely recommend the place !
Response from the owner Thanks Veronique for taking the time to share your experience with others. We are really happy you enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you again next visit. A big Hi from Agung and the staff. Cheers Lizzie
“Fantastic holiday enjoyed by all”
Our party consisted of ages from 2 to 82. The villa was spacious, cleaned daily and had a fab pool, the beds were really comfortable. The staff were amazing and always helpful with anything we needed. Great value for money and loved by everyone in our party. Lizzie was always quick to reply to my e mails and helped us with our special requests. Please thank all staff for making our holiday.
Response from the owner Thank you Deb for taking the time to review Villa Safari. We are so happy that we were able to add to your holiday experience and that you all enjoyed yourselves. I will pass on your kind words to the staff... it will "make their day". We hope to see you again on your next Bali vacation Cheers Lizzie
“Amazing villa in awesome location”
This place was awesome - great location with easy access to food, stores, beach etc.. But best of all was the villa and the huge pool. The staff were fabulous and we had a smooth airport pickup. Great massages at the end of the gang and a circle k for stocking up on necessities and cold beer. Would stay again in a heartbeat.
Response from the owner Hey Troy, Thanks so much for taking the time to review Villa Safari. It is such a help to other travelers. Glad you have fun and remember I give a 10% "Repeat Offenders" discount. Hope to see you all again soon. Cheers Lizzie
“Bali - Seminyak - Villa Safari”
We had the pleasure to stay in Villa Safari with 2 couples and 1 lonesome rider for almost 2 weeks at beginning of april 2013. I personally liked the very warm welcome by our landlady and the useful recommendations for Bali rookies like me. I tried to obey and it worked ;) We really loved this relaxing place, it's privacy and peace - we know, it can be different on Bali -, the garden and of course the pool. We did our exercises there and are now ready for the Olympics. The rooms were really meeting our expectations in comfort and cleanness and the stuff was very helpful and nice. One of our favorite Surf Spots at Kudeta is just a 5 minutes ride with the scooter, Canggu is close as well. We also loved the rides to Kuta with our motor scooters and boardrack, even if it was not the most relaxing time of the day ... After all you'll understand, if we don't recommend your Villa, Lizzie, cause of course we want to have it available the next time we come to Bali ;) Best regards to our landlady and stuff and thx so much andreas & friends
Response from the owner LOL You are too funny and we would love you to stay with us again... rules and all. hahaha Thanks so much for taking the time to review. It helps travelers to know what to expect and if we are booked remember I have 2 more villas on the same gang. I also give a 10% "Repeat Offenders" Discount. Cheers Lizzie
