“Fantastic stay, excellent experience from start to finish”
It was our first experience staying in a private villa and will not be our last. From start to finish we had prompt responses to all our enquiries and detailed information was supplied. Efficent and lovely service was provided by all the staff at the villa, who are a credit to the owner .We would not hesitate to recommend the villa to family and friends.Thankyou Lizzie
Response from the owner Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I just noticed I hadn't replied to you. We work hard to make our guests stay relaxing and trouble free and appreciate your comments. I will pass onto the staff. :0 Lizzie
“4 Bule and 1 Indonesian in Bali”
Looked through villas to stay, then i came across this listing, the zoo. Very intriguing name for a villa, and I do love animals! but it wasnt the sole reason why I picked this villa :) I was looking for a 3 bedroom villa and one room had to have at least 2 beds. Turned out 2 rooms had 2 beds, one of the king bed rooms was put another bed which worked out really well. The owner, Lizzie, she was great to communicate with, when I asked a question, she will give the most detailed answer you can get so you dont have to keep going back and forth to ask for the same question. And Lizzie responded really quickly (another reason why I picked this place). The staff was great, even when we arrived very early in the morning (3am), you can count on them to pick you up. So the place itself, it's wonderful. Every picture that you see in the listing is pretty much what you'd expect. The pool is always in the perfect temperature even when it was 4am in the morning for a swim, and they always maintain the cleanliness of the pool and the whole place in general (thank you staff :p). The location is close to ideal, with both beach and the main tourist area of the town about 15-20 minutes away on foot. Just watch out for all the motor scooters! There are also a couple of spas and shops closer. Overall, my friends and I really enjoyed our stay in the Villa Zoo. My friends and I wouldnt mind to be repeat offenders of this place :)
Response from the owner So glad you and your friends enjoyed yourselves. I try to answer all emails within a few hours. I have traveled myself and know how much easier it is to book flights, have my special needs attended to etc when you have a quick reply. We are used to late night arrivals and with Nyepi we had to work around the local ceremonies but we managed it all just fine. Easy to do when we have lovely guests like Natalia and her friends. Thanks so much for staying with us Natalia and I will pass on your kind words to the staff... it will make their day. ... and don't forget to remind me of your "Repeat Offenders" discount. We would all love to see you again. Cheers Lizzie
“Life does not get any better than staying at the Zoo!”
I thought our first stay at the Zoo was great but our second stay was even better. Agung, Eluh and the house staff treated us like royalty. The location is superb with the great restaurants and shopping at your finger tips. The Zoo is si spacious with everything you could want for a rexing vacation. Thanks Lizzie for making the booking so easy. Can't wait for our next stay!
Response from the owner ... and thanks for staying with us again... We love our "repeat offenders" LOL Agung, Iluh and the team are amazing. I am so proud of them. Thanks for sharing your experience Riley. And if I may could I add this Security advice to travelers, regardless of where people stay... FLIPKEY is without a doubt the most secure of all the Travel Websites. Help them protect you by: ALWAYS CALLING OR TEXTING THE NUMBER ON THE AD TO VERIFY YOUR EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE IS WITH THE TRUE OWNER OF THE PROPERTY. Happy vacationing in Bali
“Paradise in the herat of Seminyak”
How wonderful it was to be able to share a relaxing holiday with 4 other families in a quiet, modern comfortable setting. Lizzie and her manager agung ensured that nothing was too difficult. From our collection at the airport to our visits to Ubud everything was sensational. This is the perfect place to stay for a family or group of friends and like us who had a group of 16 Villa Plam next door also owned by Lizzie next door can be used to help accomodate a slighty larger group. Lizzie thanks again for all your hospitality and thanks to agung and all the staff who are by far the best in Bali.
Response from the owner Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with others. We really appreciate it... and there are big smiles and hello from Agung and the staff today. Thanks again Lizzie
The worst thing about this place is having to leave! Lizzie was fantastic to deal with right from the very beginning. I took her advice regarding being careful to ring the number provided to guard against being scammed. I immediately felt at ease and enjoyed my communications with Lizzie. On arrival at the airport I was met by Nyoman who drove me to the villa. I've always used the taxi service before but using Nyoman was well worth the small extra cost. Lizzie's manager, Agung met me at the Villa and proceeded to give me all the info needed to ensure we enjoyed our stay at the Zoo. Even gave directions to shortcuts through gangs (alleys) to get to the main streets etc. A guide is provided in the villa to the nearest restaurants, in villa spa treatments etc. The villa is serviced daily by agung, his wife Iluh, Iluh2 and 2 others who I was remiss in not getting their names. These 5 take great pride in cleaning the villa, garden and pool. They work super efficiently and nothing is too much trouble. All done with beaming smiles and happy greetings. Thanks so much team, it was lovely to meet you all. Iluh is a sensational cook and for a few dollars will cook you a traditional Bali/Indonesian meal/feast! She shops for the food and then comes to your villa to cook. My advice is to leave while she is cooking as the aroma drives you mad with longing. Then she cleans up and leaves you any leftovers for the next day. We booked Iluh to cook twice. Both times were delicious. My 2 favourites of her amazing dishes were the Urab and Chicken Sate. The villa is very clean and comfortable, a great holiday home. One of the door locks broke and agung was there in minutes to put a new lock on. The Villa is well located, 10 minutes walk from Jl Oberoi/Laksmana/Eat St and Jl Raya Seminyak. 15 minutes walk to the beach but only a 60c taxi ride! It's away from the hustle and bustle, a quiet oasis with only birdsong and squirrels in the trees to break the silence.
Response from the owner Hi Lindy, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at The Zoo Bali with others.

My staff are really more like my family. They truly care about our guests and I will pass on your kind words. Looking forward to seeing you and you lovely family again in March. Cheers Lizzie
“Perfect stay at the Zoo villa”
We had a perfect stay at the villa. We were welcomed by akung and he showed us the villa. Also there was some food including fruit in the fridge which was very nice The villa itself is situated about 10 minutes walking from Oberoi street and the beach, still it is a quit area. Akung explained were we could eat, which taxi company was ok and much more. The villa is cleaned every day by akung, his wife and the rest of the very friendly staff. The three bedrooms were very nice, we had an extra bed for our daughter in our room, still there was enough space left over. We also spoke with the owner, the lovely Lizzie Love :-). She is a very nice person with a lot of stories and i was nice talking with her. When we asked her were we could get a good massage, she recomended aspia just around the corner. The australian owner is Bill Wilson and the staff is great. If you are looking for villa close to the beach and close to the shops and restaurants, this is it. Thank you Lizzy, Akung en the rest of the staff. We had a perfect holiday in your villa in Seminyak. Kind regards, The Koole Family
Response from the owner Thank you Richard for taking the time to share your holiday experience at The Zoo. I will pass on your kind words to Agung and the staff. We hope to see you again on your next trip to Bali. Don't forget our "Repeat Offenders" Discount of 10%. Happy guests is what we strive for and it really makes our day to know you all had a great time at the The Zoo . Cheers Lizzie
This was my second visit to Bali and Villa The Zoo and it was like coming Home. The villa is a delight and spotless. So comfortable and for six adults at no time did we feel lacking in space. And so central to everything. It was perfect. As for Lizzie and her staff led by the very very capable agung...they were amazing. The lovely thing is they don't change. They were the same delightful obliging group that I had the pleasure of meeting two years ago and that's special. Nothing was too much trouble and they even remembered certain needs I'd had on my last visit and they were in place on my arrival. They are responsible for making our holiday the joy it was.
Response from the owner ...and it was equally a delight to see you again. The best thing about renting my villas is returning guests Terry. It's like having friends visit. I will pass on your kind words to Agung and the staff and we look forward to your next visit. Cheers Lizzie
“Well priced excellent accommodation”
We as an adult family of 5 including a daughter in a wheelchair,stayed here for a month in Jan/Feb 2013. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Zoo. Lizzie is a delightful knowledgable host & we believe we have made friends for life with each other. The daily staff under agung's watchful care were wonderful & forever helpful in any way they could be.. We loved the pool & small garden, the outdoor feel of the living room & found everything very comfortable. The kitchen is basically but adequately furnished & we even cooked many meals in it over our month stay. The pool was big enough for me to do my daily laps in. The fact that of the 3 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms with their own ensuites were downstairs was perfect especially with our group with mobility issues. The location is walking distance to the beach & to the 2 main shopping/restaurant streets in Seminyak but was quietly located down a long alley(gang) that would have been better to be have been paved all the way. That being said, is a town infrastructure issue. There are other more luxurious ( & thus more expensive villas) available but the Zoo is certainly very good accommodation especially for the price & we all would recommend it especially within the parameters of value for money. Thank you Lizzie, Agung, Nyomen, Agung's wife (for the home cooked dinner she did at the Zoo for us) & the lovely ladies who came daily to clean & tidy. We would love to return & feel sure you will see us again. Cheers & hugs Patti & famiily
Response from the owner Thank you Patti, Reviews really help future guests in making th right selection of a villa. It was such a pleasure having you and your family stay with us . I have passed your kind words on to the staff as it really "makes their day" when we get such a lovely review. Cheers Lizzie
“Good location, good standard, very good value”
We had a very nice vacation at The Zoo. The communication with Lizzie was easy, accurate and prompt. The villa itself is a good standard and a very good match for families. Everyone in our party agreed that they would definitely stay with Lizzie again.
Response from the owner Thank you so much Sam for taking the time to review The Zoo. ...and I will hold you too that and see you again on your next visit. Cheers Lizzie
“Great villa, sunny in the day, central location yet not in the m”
Staying at the Zoo villa was great, the staff were very helpful and kind. Lizzie (the owner) greeted us on our arrival and gave us great pointers. The villa was cleaned daily inside, and out side (they even swept the leaves off the grass daily). 5 min walk to Seminyak road or 1 min taxi. 5 min taxi to Jl Legian. There were very good resturants up the road 2 min walk, Very central. It was tucked away from the main street, down a lane, which was a dead end, so you had great privacy. I would highly recommend this for families, groups of couples, friends.
Response from the owner Thanks Courtney. Reviews help other travelers and thanks for the pics. See you again in September. Cheers darling and have a wonderful Xmas. Lizzie
