Villa Castilla is the best Villa that we’ve stayed at in Bali. The initial driveway entrance automatically makes you feel ike you’re somewhere special and then when you enter the villa your blown away. The location is on our favourite street (and you’re right on it, no need for a long walk to get to it) and in what we’d consider the best area in Seminyak with so many great shops and restaurants only minutes away by either foot or with your driver. The staff in the Villa are lovely, we really enjoyed the time with Ani and Yanti. They were professional and friendly and nothing was an effort. The breakfast choices was great, but you can’t go past having Ani’s banana pancakes, you MUST have these. Our driver Rama knew all the right places to go and was willing to assist in anyway he could, really helpful having a driver to help plan you day and not rely on taxi’s and bargaining a rate or asking for meter, just makes it easy. This villa is great for a group of people and especially for families with younger children with the villa being able to be locked up all together and the kids don’t have to be in separately locked rooms like others we've stayed at. Also the pool fence adds that extra peace of mind. There’s so much room and space to either relax, read, swim, play or do whatever. Lastly Susan’s quick responses and assistance with organising your stay before you arrive is second to none. There’s no need for follow up and everything is in order to just make your holiday a holiday. We hope to be back here again and again in the coming years!
This was my first overseas trip with my daughters and the staff at Villa Castilla could not have done anymore to make our trip fantastic. Anni our housekeeper, Rama our driver and Dewi our housekeeper in training went out of their way to help us have the best holiday together. The house was immaculate and it could not have been in a better place. So close to the shops, restaurants and beaches. Walking off the busy street into the quiet luxury of the Villa was amazing. Would definitely recommend it and go back again.
Great location on eat street close to all the restaraunts. Villa is very spacious and comfortable, set back from the actual street so noise is not a problem. Ani (maid) and Rama (driver) were unbelievable, did more than was necessary ensuring we enjoyed every day we were there. Couldn't ask for much more.
“Relaxing...even with 6 kids!”
Lovely relaxing villa with every convenience on the door step. Good restaurants, shops and beach with in walking distance. Annie was amazing as housekeeper she kept the home wonderfully clean, organised breakfast and entertained our kids (especially the baby!). We took advantage of the chef twice and his meals were delicious. The pool we felt could do with some more regular cleaning but the kids enjoyed splashing around in it. It was difficult to find a sunny spot in the garden to sunbath if you are a sun worshipper but come the afternoon this was not an issue and the beach is only a 10 minute walk away! The driver was very helpful and it was great to be able to explore the island with ease (we loved trying the beaches of Sanur and Nusa Dua and of course also the surfing on Seminyak beach itself. We were delighted with the lay out of the villa. We had a separate bedroom area off the pool for the teenager, enough space for the other 5 kids upstairs and a very comfortable bedroom for ourselves. The showers were a little temperamentle running very hot at times and it was very difficult to run a bath from the shower extension but we kindly got a use of a baby bath to bath the baby. It would have been useful to know of the additional charges for the babies cot's in advance as I could've saved myself $50 dollars by bringing my travel cot. That aside we felt the value for money was good, especially for a large family. We would like to thank again all the wonderful staff and we would (and have all ready) recommend Susan's Villa Castilla to friends :)
“Excellent Family Holiday for 3 generations in 1 villa”
The villa is in the heart of Seminyak and it was easy to find a restaurant nearby. The car and driver made sightseeing, shopping or outings simple. The beds and furniture were comfortable and very clean.The staff were excellent - obliging,friendly - nothing was too much trouble.The villa was well designed for our needs (10 including 3 young children) as we had gathered in the one location to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday.Unlike a hotel we could separate into different sitting areas(outside by the pool,downstairs or upstairs) rather than bedrooms when we wanted to split up.The pool was shaded to mid morning and again in the afternoon so no one was sunburned.There was space to lie in the sun if wanted.Breakfasts were delicious and when we asked for slight variations to the menus (combined some dishes from Balinese breakfast to the European) the staff cooked to our tastes - hot sambal for my husband who loves the chili flavour! We enjoyed the pool but the water level seemed to drop about 12cms over a couple of days so we were not sure if it had a leak or if it was evaporation.The pool man topped it up regularly when servicing it.This villa would be suitable for families or groups of friends. An excellent celebratory holiday.
Booking with Susan is a pleasure. The rental agreement is very clear and the bank transfers safe and relatively painless! We were greeted at the airport ( at midnight) by Budi, the most lovely man and safe driver, with water and frangipani leis! He had installed the car seat and we were whisked promptly to the villa. The villa is impeccably maintained and all the staff, addi- the gardener/ security guard, who waited up every night until we were safely home, ani, the house keeper, who had endless patience with my rowdy boys and desa, who was recovering from a broken foot, who worked like a Trojan and made our stay fabulous. Ani and desa indulged my dad, who was turning 70 with fresh sambal and kankung, which are not typical western requests! In spite of having 9 people plus a baby, the villa was large enough that we weren't in each other's pockets. My parents, who couldn't manage the stairs, had a room on the ground floor on the other side of the pool, which gave them a little more privacy. I was concerned about the stairs, but it was groundless, as there were baby gates and the kids managed them with no problems! As a working mother, it was wonderful to have someone to cook and do the shopping. Someone to do the washing and ironing and the cleaning made villa castilla a wonderful respite from home. The staff couldn't do enough for us and really made the stay perfect. We love Budi- he does his best to suggest interesting things to do and make our stay enjoyable! The location on eat street is fabulous and we didn't have to walk far to anything. Despite this the villa had the feeling of being secluded and private! I would love to go back for longer than the 14 nights we stayed. The best thing for me was having asih, who we had met previously, come and babysit for us. We trust her and it let us go out and enjoy many adult family dinners. Overall I would highly recommend this villa to all. Thank you for a great stay.
My extended family (10 persons) stayed here for two weeks at the end of March. The home is in a fantastic location (in the middle of Jalan Oberoi) but set back enough from the road that it is removed from all the noise and bustle. The home and all rooms are very large (with the exception of the TV room which can convert into an extra bedroom), with nice furnishings and is kept beautifully clean. There's a large pool, which has a permanent pool fence, and is kept very clean. It comes with the use of a driver for 8 hours a day (which we made full use of) and at least one housekeeper (we had two I think due to the size of our group). All the staff were wonderful. For the size (4 double bedrooms and one convertible to a single), location and amenities it's very cheap and represents great value if you are splitting the cost at least 2 ways. Everyone in our group had a great time, and we'd certainly stay at Villa Castilla again.
“Fantastic Holiday Villa Castilla Syminyak”
I had a fantastic 10 day holiday with my 2 daughters and my sister and brother in law.The housekeeper annie and her helper just wonderful looking after us.I didn't have to lift a finger with a wonderful breakfast cooked everyday with and an array of different fruits some which I had never had before. Keeping the house and our rooms tidy every day especially with my two daughters rooms and doing our washing.I liturgy didn't have to lift a finger to do anything which made my holiday great. Danar our driver was fantastic a great character he took us where ever we wanted to go and his suggestions of places to see was excellent specially the Volcano Range he took us too as when we got out of the car one of my daughters said wow!! and coming from a teenager on scenery this was great. Danar related really well to my daughters who were 17 and 20 they got on well with him and when one of them was sick from a migraine she had he was out of the car helping holding her hair back rubbing her back he was fantastic with her as I was in the very back of the car and he kept checking with her how she was all the way back to our villa. I couldn't thank him enough for his help with her. Villa Castilla was a great location and the house and swimming pool were great central to everything in Seminyak and as it was set back from main road there was no traffic noise and boy was there a lot of traffic all the time. We had a fantastic holiday
“Location to die for”
From the first moment that we met our driver at the airport to the last time that we were dropped back to the airport to leave we felt nothing but special. The villa and all who have any Involvment to it from our driver Darma to our house keepers annie and Dessa to Sindu the guest relations manager. Nothing is to much of a problem they will cater to your every whim from annies fantastic breakfasts to Darmas Unbeleivable Knoledge of all the interesting places to go we were treated like royalty and they all made our trip one to remember cant wait till next year to catch up with them all again Susan will do what ever it takes to make you feel at home and her staff are the most Freindly that we have ever come across on our many visits to Bali .
I holidayed at Villa Castilla with my Mum,my aunty and some friends (a girls holiday). We enjoyed our stay at the Villa but we loved the staff!! The Villa is in a perfect position ,walking distance to great restruants and shops. The Villa is clean but needs some maintanence on the toilets and the water pressure in the top main bedroom shower is terrible. The staff were definitely the highlight of our holiday and I congratulate them on their professional yet friendly and accomadating manner. I would definitely recommend this villa for a group or families with adult children. The stairs are quiet steep and would be difficult if you had young children. Susan was very professional to deal with and I would book through her on my next trip to Bali. A special thanks to Putu and annie,your the best!!!
