We had a major issue with our stay, what happened will not affect other guests and we were well compensated for it so will not go into details. Here is what will help you with your decision to stay here There is construction on either side of the villa and across the road. The construction started at 8am and continued until 8pm (one night until 9pm) they were working on a communal wall and the sound was really really loud. Our 13 month old son had the main bedroom as that room had no communal walls to construction (the only one in the entire villa) the sound was so bad he wouldn't sleep during the day. We had to walk around and hope he would get 40mins in the carrier (he slept 3 hours at other villas) the construction over looks the pool and gazebo. They have tried to block it out but the men were still staring into our villa while we were lying around. There is no rice paddy next to the villa any more. It is now a building. By the end of the year the villa will have two big buildings towering over it. The beds and bathrooms were comfortable. The main bathroom is unusable due to construction workers looking in. The breakfasts were delicious and we really appreciated the ladies looking after our son while we ate. I'm sure this villa would have been a gem a few years ago but we would not stay or recommend this villa now.
Response from the owner Thank you for your comments and we are glad that you liked the villa and the staff treated you well but sad that you experienced a period of particularly bad noise issues . On a good note,These building works should shortly be complete. Bali currently has a "knock it down and make it bigger and better culture". We regularly drive through the streets and think " wow, where did that building go, or, when did that building go up!" Seminyak / petitenget is a city, with massive ongoing investment. Like most cities, space is limited and building works can and will be a short term inconvenience of which we, or no other accommodation providers have any control. However, these same building works are the ones that create this amazing entertaining environment that we are surrounded by. Incredible shopping, fine dining and entertainment and beaches are within strolling distance of the villa....
“Definitively Back again”
The owner of villa 888 seminyak is a beautiful lady, she is very kind of her customers. The villa is very clean and all the staffs are very helpful and politely. The location is very good. There is a supermarket nearby and can just about ten minutes walk to the beach.Surroundings are a lot of restaurants, I hope next year I can back to bali. And I definitively back to villa 888.
Response from the owner How lovely to meet you all, very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us at Villa 888 so much.. We loved all the wedding photos you sent via email and felt very honoured to have you choose VILLA 888 to have them taken. Wishing you all a wonderful 2014 the Year of the Horse, filled with health, adenture, love and prosperity. From Team 888 :)
“Impeccable Service - Beautiful Villa”
Wayan, Janamaree and team could not have been more accomodating if they tried. We were treated like royalty for the week we stayed. Wayan was on hand for anything we required (restaurant bookings, general information) and organised daily tours to cater for all needs (Beach day for the ladies and quad biking for the boys). The villa was amazing, cleaned daily by Wayan's wife who again couldn't have been more helpful. It felt more like a home than a holiday stay. We had plenty of room for 6 adults. The outdoor showers were a real treat! The location of the villa is perfect. It's down a side road, away from the noise and hectic streets of Seminyak Square. There are fabulous restaurants within walking distance and a taxi can drop you to the middle of the action costing less than a $1 (make sure they turn on their meter). The highlight for us was the service we received from Wayan and team. I think without them we would not of seen or learnt as much about Bali. The only negative I can think of is that there is no sun on the pool in the afternoon. And I would not recommend the villa for children as the pool is very open and no barriers.
Response from the owner Thanks for the wonderful review Carol, I hope Gilli was amazing and super relaxing, such a pretty island... I am happy to announce that we do have a portable POOL FENCE which is professionaly made and covers all safety standards. So as not to block the view to the pool we only install when there are young children in the villa. Thank you for bringing this to our attention as I need to change my information so it is more of a feature for families, we strive to be continually improving... "Kaizen" little by little.... Warmest wishes and it was an absoulte pleausure having you all stay, from the amazing Wayan's a huge HI !! Best wishes for a GR888 2014, the year of the Horse... Janmaree and Team 888
“A cozy oasis”
Our party of 7 recently stayed at Villa 888 and had a wonderful experience. The villa is cozy and beautifully decorated, and the pool is a lovely place to chill out and relax. The location was great, close to Seminyak sights and walking distance to the beach. Janmaree was so helpful and full of suggestions about where to eat and what to see; she even recommended and booked a great place for us to have Xmas dinner. Wayan the driver/tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and Wayan the housekeeper/cook couldn't have been more gracious. This team really cares about their guests' comfort and happiness. A great place to stay in Seminyak.
Response from the owner Hi Shelly and crew, It was a delight to have you all stay. Wonderful to see familys coming together and enjoying just being together... Mrs. Wayan is still talking about haing to come and ferry you all home when you got lost (very close by) These funny events are what make wonderful holiday memories for both us and you I am sure. All the best for 2014 the year of the Horse, may it bring many more wonderful events and memories. From the entire Team @ VILLA 888 :)
“The only place to stay in Petitenget”
We have just had the most remarkable 10 days at villa 888 Petitenget. We call oit out 2ND home. having had 6 nights there in May this year. Janmaree is the perfect host, nothing is a trouble. The house keeper Wayan is a delight and she attends to your every need. Kormang takes care of the garden & pool, every thing is kept in perfect condition. The villa is positioned in a convenient location, close to restaurants, super market and cash exchange. If any one is looking for a relaxing holiday with a great private pool, staff that spoil you, look no further.
Response from the owner Oh my goodness, I am just revisiting old reviews and for some crazy reasons yours has never been published... You boys have made such an impact on us. We loved having you stay. We wish you all the best for your Bali adventure on the East coast. We welcome back anytime and look forward to catching up. Warmest regards, JM, Wayan, Wayan and the ever smiling Komang :)
“tranquility in paradise”
Had a great stay at villa 888. Quiet and very comfortable yet a short walk to beach and shopping areas packed with everything from Indonesian antiques to funky bars. I would recommend this villa to everyone and look forward to a return visit as soon as poss. Thank you janmaree and staff for making my stay a memorable experience .
Response from the owner Teramakasih Tim for taking the time to send a review, it is GR888tly appreciated. We all enjoyed your company immensely, your funny travel stories...the only man I know who has checked in at an airport wearing a motorbike crash helmet to save excess baggage!! This takes "novelty hat" to a new level... Was a pleasure and we all hope to see you again in the future. Huge Hi from the Wayan's and a big smile from Komang..... Happy travels. Team 888
Honestly, I don't know where to start. This is not a holiday rental but a holiday paradise. Not only is Villa 888 clean, comfortable and maintained, it has a feel to it that oozes 'we care'. There are super comfy beds, a sparkling pool, a perfect kitchen, endless bottled water, a gorgeous outdoor gazebo, hot water and personal touches like universal power plugs and Bali belly medication. However, by far the reason our stay could not have been any better was due to the staff. Our new family. Wayan (Jam Keret), Mrs Wayan, Ayu, Nyoman and the lovely owner Janmaree, are people who leave a footprint on your heart. I miss them dearly and mean it when I say that we will be back. Your care and experience makes Bali a sensational holiday. Thank you for spoiling my mum for her birthday and keeping her surprise visitor a secret. It was a girly trip we won't forget. Love, health and happiness to you all. Love Katie, Tiff, Coralee and annie. Ps many photos coming
Response from the owner Thank you Katie, So many people touch our hearts, and you, Tiff Annie and Coralee are on the top of the list.. Every day I would witness the excitement of the team, all the plotting and planning and secret surprises. You all really made their days at work a holiday too... Every one is frantic getting ready for Galungan on the 23rd. Not sure if you met beautiful "Wilber" bubbi when you visited Wayan's home, but he's on the menu for the celebrations :( On a brighter note, we all send our love and wish you well AND look forward to seeing your photo's !! Sampai Kita Bertemu lagi x
“Home away from home”
Janmaree and the two Wayans impeccable attention to detail makes Villa 888 an absolute pleasure to call home . From answering emails ,being greeted on arrival , looked after for 12 days and sad farewells all three people are amazing . Wayan is a beautiful lady who taught us to cook, kept house for us so it really was a holiday and just loved my grandchildren. Wayan (man) flows with passion about this Villa and Bali. He went out of his way to book activities , drive us around and cook our yummy Balinese meal. Bill 888 is even more perfect than can be seen in the photos. There are lots of little warungs around to eat and anything else needed is a taxi ride away . Just love our holiday and will be back again on our next family holiday . There are no words to express our heartfelt thanks to you all. Thankyou,Thankyou, Thankyou.
Response from the owner Dearest Kaye, Thank you for embracing our culture and giving our wonderful team a chance to share with you part of their world and belief systems. Bali is a diverse country and it is wonderful to witness families, totally enjoying both sides of it as well as each other. I am positive that the wonderful, energy and experiences of Bali will shine in the hearts of your family and grandchildren for eternity. . . From our entire team we thank you X
Absolutely loved this villa. The pictures didn't do it justice... The staff was amazing, very friendly and more than helpful... Take the tours!!! The only recommendation I could add would that it would've been nice to have had a grill just because we love to BBQ however, it was nice to have. Brek from cooking as well!
Response from the owner It was an absolute pleasure to host and meet you and your family Marianne. A warm hello from Wayan 1 & 2...they enjoyed taking care of you very much, and made mention of how kind and lovely all the children were with them... I had considered a BBQ and now that you have mentioned it I will look in to it...one of the next projects is a child safety fence across the deck... It only just dawned on me how easy it would be to install. We are always adding and improving...and appreciate the feed back...x Thank you for holidaying with us and we hope to see you again.. All the best for a gr888 year. from the entire Team at VILLA 888 SEMINYAK Janmaree, Wayan, Wayan (tour driver) , Kormang, Ayu, Kormang (Security) and Murdi Pool cleaner :)
“The complete package!”
From the moment we arrived at the airport we were met by Wayan and then by Janmaree and female Wayan at the Villa. Always punctual, polite and just as important, caring staff. I was concerned at first when booking the villa that it couldn't possibly be as nice as the photos shown - it was just as good, if not better. As we very quickly learnt over our 8 night stay Janmaree is an honest hard working lady, always ensuring behind the scenes that her guests have the opportunity to do as much or as little as they like. She even came to our rescue at 1030 one evening when we had locked ourselves out of the Villa. We spent several days with Wayan with a highlight being for us being taken to a traditional tooth filing ceremony - never to be forgotten. Whilst not in the heart of Seminyak itself we enjoyed wandering through the local shops and eating at the restaurants which were all within 5-10 min walk from the villa (and only a very short taxi ride to beach - cost @$1-$2). This villa gave us an enjoyable family holiday, with my husband and I, a 7yo and 8yo, my brother and his 13yo daughter and our 70yo mother! I would say we were probably a person overcrowded for the sleeping facilities however this was totally due to us and adding people to our original booking. We are now transferring to the 2nd 888 Oberoi villa and can't wait to see what this has to offer. Don't bother looking elsewhere this venue will give you everything you need for a memorable holiday!
Response from the owner Hi Jeanine, I there was a section on flipkey to review the guests I would give you and your family 6 out of 5 ****** It was such a pleasure meeting you all, wonderful to see families really gelling together and making the most of every situation. And as far as your mum being 70!! no way....(it's all in the earlobes") Wayan says M mm, thank you for the coconut coffee :) And I will treasure my very special hand made AND "produced" birthday card from the kids...really special :-) I hope your winter starts to warm up soon ready for a busy summer season. From us all at VILLA 888 it has been a pleasure. X
