“A laidback piece of paradise in the heart of Seminyak”
Heart of Seminyak is a beautiful and comfortable private villa on the perfect location, in a quiet area just of Seminyak's main road. All the favorite beaches, restaurants and shops can be reached by scooter/moped in just a few minutes. For the second year in a row, we had an amazing time at this wonderful house. The bedrooms with comfortable beds, an outside living groom and kitchen next to the well kept garden and typical Balinese swimming pool give this house it's great atmosphere and will make you want to come back every year, just like us.
“Amazing Holidays at Villa Sophia”
We had an amazing time at the Villa Sophia. Everything was perfect and as agreed with the owners. To remark something that was not so good I would mention that access is not so nice (too dirty and hidden way)
Response from the owner Dear Guest, I'm so happy you enjoyed the villa!! The location is between Jl Petit enget and Jl Oberoi. Because its "hidden away" its still quite and you don't hear much music/traffic. Personally I love that. Regarding the access....unfortunately we are sharing the access road with some landowners, who are sometimes not really cooperating, it's sometimes hard to make them clear that we ALL have to keep the access clean. However, we will do our best to make it happen. Thank you for your review. Warm regards from Bali
“Well priced villa, but didnt meet expectation”
We stayed here for 5 nights and the villa is well priced for what you get compared to more expensive villas around. The pool is lovely & relaxing, Made the house keeper is such a lovely lady & the accomodation is overall quite comfortable, however, as we have stayed in bali many times we were a but dissapointed in a few things that we missed out on but i guess thats why it is priced fairly. We actually couldnt find the villa for quite some time (as we were already in bali a week and got our own transport to the villa) as there is no signage or indication as to where the villa is. It was not exactly where it says on the map, its nearby but not where i got the taxi to take us from the map indication. Also a big must for me in Bali or anywhere abroad is security, we felt a bit anxious at night being down the end of a long dark driveway with no other people or hotels around and no security, i just prefer personally to stay in a secure complex or villa enclave. Having a small baby we also would have liked to have been closer to some restaurants, there is a warung at the end of the driveway but we dont tend to eat at warungs every day.
Response from the owner Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Villa SOPHIA is located close to one of the most popular street, Jalan Oberoi/Jalan Kayu Aya. I can imagine that you prefer to be closer to some restaurants when you dont really feel like walking with your baby, but kindly keep in my mind it comes along with the noise of the music of the restaurant and the traffic. Villa SOPHIA still can offer the quietness, which I’m so happy for. So my guests can still have a peaceful and quiet night’s sleep. I’m very sorry that you have been driving around to look for villa SOPHIA. Villa SOPHIA offers guests a FREE pick up, once you’ve been there it’s easy to find for the second time. Again I feel sorry that it took the taxi driver so long. Regarding the security, I’m a woman and stayed my first year at villa SOPHIA myself and I felt very safe because of the security at the front of the car rental. The guy who stays there has to secure the cars. That was my reason why I’ve never hired a security. However, I’m happy you enjoyed the villa and of course our Made. Even villa SOPHIA didn’t meet your expection, you did enjoy the villa and I’m very happy to hear that. Again thank you for your review. Warm regards Sophia
My sister, our 2teenage boys & my 6 yr old daughter have just returned from a weeks stay at Villa Sophia. We loved it. The staff, Rudy & Made were both helpful & discreet & the villa was clean, comfortable & spacious to accommodate us comfortably. Easy walking to the beach, shopping etc. we are hoping to stay again next year. Big thanks to Sophia, for making it possible & so easy. Hopefully we will meet next year!
“Everything promised was true - charming!”
We were lucky to have 7 nights at Villa Sophia - a charming and authentic Balinese villa. The villa is private and spacious and the pool is beautiful. Everything promised came through. We were met at the airport, driven to Villa Sophia by Wayan Budi and welcomed by Rudy. Made, a lovely and kind lady, prepared breakfast for us daily and kept the villa clean and tidy. All our bookings and arrangements were smooth and efficient. You do need to walk a little way to get to the main road to find all the restaurants and shopping but this was part of the fun! Otherwise, taxis are easy to find. There are some salons and little cafes just near the villa - food was great! It was great to return to Villa Sophia after a day out to swim, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. We will certainly return to Villa Sophia! A big thank-you!
“Couldn't ask for more in a villa”
Loved it, the villa itself was perfect. Location a little hard to find ,no sign post and road rough on-driveway, but quiet and would love to return. Service great by Sophia, made and rudy. Thank you
Response from the owner thank you for your beautiful review. For your information, the rough road now is finally fixed. I can say one of the best roads in Seminyak. So hopefully when you are back next time….you can have a nice walk to the shops and restaurants! Have a wonderful day! Warm regards from Bali Sophia
“Home away from home, and even more!”
We stayed here in the first week of June 2013, a family of 2 adults and 4 young kids (12, 7, 6 & 4 years old). Even though the actual location is about a 10-15-minute walk to Jalan Oberoi (our kids were struggling to walk in the heat), it's not really that hard to get a taxi once you step out of the villa. There are a few cafes and a minimart just outside the place itself, so on days where you can't be bothered to go out these become quite handy. If you ever need anything (eg in-villa massage, driver to take you around etc.) just call the villa manager and he'll sort it out for you, it was that easy! He'll leave you with a mobile with local number just in case if you need to contact him. Great thing about Seminyak is if you have young kids and want to also spend sometime by the sea, forget about going to crowded and dirty Kuta and just get on a taxi and head to Petitenget beach, which is located only a kilometre away, 10 minutes maxi in a taxi (take the Bluebird taxis, cause they're metered). The villa itself is perfect, everything that you need is there. Made the housekeeper did an excellent job preparing breakfast, tidying up the rooms as well as giving us some pointers on where we can go to get some local food. The kids (and us too) were quite sad to leave the place, even after spending 6 hours in the pool on the last day! Would definitely recommend this place!
Response from the owner Dear Wan, thank you for the review and the lovely pictures!! I told Rudy ( villamanager) and Made that you wrote a nice review about them and they really had a big smile on their face (our appreciation towards them means a lot to them). Walking to Jl Oberoi can be hard for kids that age. When I walk by myself its easier and faster. However…now I know how long it will take for families with kids….I can inform my future guests, thank you for this info Wan!! Again thank you for writing such a nice review and I’m very happy you and your family had a pleasant stay at villa SOPHIA. Warm regards from Bali Sophia
“Wonderful, cosy villa! Highly recommended!”
We've just returned from Bali staying at Villa Sophia for two weeks with our 2 kids (2 years and 4 years). Located in the heart of Seminyak, Villa Sophia was the best where we stayed on our Bali vacation. The villa itself is spacious, clean and comfortable, and moreover has a lot of charm. It's beautiful furnished in Balinese style. It is located at very quit location but within walking distance to some of the best restaurants/bars in Seminyak. This villa is absolutely perfect if you're traveling with young children!! There are two spacious rooms next to each other with a connecting door. The staff is wonderful and very helpful, attending to every possible need. Made, the housekeeping lady is so sweet, caring and was always willing to play with the children. During our stay we also met the owners of the villa who are extremely friendly, helpful and reliable. They did everything to make our stay unforgettable! The villa was everything that we had wanted for our holiday. We loved everything about villa Sophia, had a fabulous stay and will definitely return with our children. We highly, highly recommend this place!! Can't wait to come back again soon Thank you all (and especially Sophia ?) for the wonderful stay!!
“A guarantee for a great stay in Seminyak”
Sophia is a very comfortable house on an ideal location in Seminyak. All of Seminyak and the main roads can be reached in just a few minutes by foot or scooter. A minimarket, a small restaurant and a laundry service can be found just across the road. The villa has a beautiful swimmingpool and a cozy outdoor livingroom and kitchen, where you can enjoy the wonderful sounds and smells of Bali in the evening. The lovely fenced garden offers full privacy. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable. I am in the holiday rental business and this is what I call "Great value for money!" We will defintely be back next year! Maybe twice!
I stayed at Villa Sophia for 9 nights with my girlfriend and as soon as we walked through the front door our fantastic Bali holiday began. I was initially greeted by the Villa manager agus and housekeeper Madee. Both were very welcoming and friendly. I was immediately blown away by this little hidden gem. The bedroom was spacious, bathroom was big and bright, and the al fresco dining area and kitchenette opened to the amazing pool. The villa is a short walk to the main street in Seminyak with fantastic restaurants, bars and shopping for the ladies as well as a short taxi ride to the ever impressive Potato Head and Kudeta. They are also just about to open a Minimart about 25 metres from the Villa. Which will be very convenient. Weather you go to Bali to laze by the pool or to go exploring, Villa Sophia is the perfect place to call home in Bali. Waking up and finishing an evening in Villa Sophia was the cherry on top of my first Balinese experience. Many thanks to management and the entire crew at Villa Sophia.
