“Nice enough villa, fantastic property manager”
We stayed at Villa Cantik for a month in Feb 2015. Nice little villa, perfectly located in Penestanan near great restaurants etc. The villa itself needs a bit of an update in terms of some of the furnishings which are a bit tired, but overall our experience was very good. In particular, Steve Castley, who runs Private Ubud Villas (of which Villa Cantik is one) is a class act. Really nice guy who responds promptly to questions and overall just made our stay in Ubud go so smoothly (we relied on many of his recommendations for random things like cab drivers, restaurants, etc and each one was just fantastic). In fact, I'd say he is probably the easiest/best property manager I've ever dealt with in over two decades of traveling the world. I've seen some of the other villas that Steve manages, and they are all very very nice (most nicer than Villa Cantik, actuall :-). We would definitely rent one of his villas again if we return to Ubud and would recommend his operation to friends.
“A relaxing vacation.”
Booking was very easy. Steve answered all our questions and likewise emailed us promptly with details of information that we needed. Pick-up from the airport was a breeze with our excellent driver ONI and arrived in the beautiful Villa Cantik. So private, adequate facilities and a highly dependable room boy, Wayan's who took care of our needs. Perfect location with just a few steps to the main road yet tranquil in the hidden pathways to 2 villas. For two adults, this is a perfect vacation villa. We will definitely come back. Steve is a wonderful person to deal with, everything is prompt and straightforward. He runs a very smooth and fine business with dependable staff.
“Peaceful, comfortable and high quality villa vacation”
We had a fantastic few days at Villa Cantik. The villa was excellently equipped, had tasteful furnishings and was very comfortable. They put in a proper baby cot with thick mattress for free (not a travel cot!). Our house boy was lovely and discreet, making our breakfast with no fuss. The village had some nice eating places, but we went to Ubud every night (about 50k per trip, and some drivers will pick you up after to take you back). We did try walking once, but its impossible with little kids. It was good to be outside of the busy Ubud hub and have a peaceful retreat. The only thing that didn't work was the DVD player, but this didn't spoil our stay in any way. I highly recommend Villa Cantik.
Response from the manager Thanks for the great review. We have now replaced the DVD player.
“Convenient but needs a refit”
Sweet little villa but furnishings very dated and we had to put towels on the pool chairs as they need recovering. I have stayed in most of the villas owned by private Ubud villas and the others are just superb.
“Comfortable stylish villa.”
Steve was very helpful, our stay at the Villa Cantik was comfortable. The only downside was the house being built right next door, so lots and lots of hammering, drilling, etc. Steve did not know about this so not really anyones fault, just unfortunate in our timing. The Villa itself was extremely well appointed, with stylish contemporary furnishings, beds were good, and the two bathrooms were lovely. Wayne the houseboy was excellent in looking after us all, including a 6 month old baby. Location was not bad, a bit of a walk from Ubud Centre, but taxis were easy, and cheap. There were lots of good restaurants very close by (one almost next door) Wifi not very good in the villa, but you could use it at the restaurants. If you walk up the road a bit (approx 50-100 metres) and cross the road into the bush - you enter a beautiful area of rice paddies, typically Balinese. The Villa was an oasis, so good to arrive at after the busy airport, Steve arranged our transfers to and from the airport, at a fair price. Thank you Steve for all your help, hope to see you again.
“feels like home”
I'm stayed at villa cantik with my husband and kids. The location is perfect, near restaurant, cafe, supermarket, blanco museum. The villa is homey & clean. Every morning, they served bread & fruits for breakfast. I'm stayed there at valentine's day and Mr. Steve gave me a rose, so sweet. Very recommended villa.
“Great little villa, good location”
Villa was lovely - we thoroughly enjoyed dips in the pool and the indoor-outdoor living area. Fruit breakfast made for us every morning. Fantastic Indian restaurant (Sharaswhaty) just over the road and other good restaurants nearby too. And a place next door to get massages. It's walkable into central Ubud, especially if you find the path past the rice paddies and down the stairs. Steve was extremely helpful, organising airport transport for us and even a car seat for the baby. One slight downside was that there was a bit of construction work nearby which was sometimes a bit noisy, but that is obviously outside of the villa's control and won't last forever.
“Lovely quiet place”
Nice private place in small town outside of Ubud. In good shape, has everything you need and a roomboy taking care of breakfast and cleaning.
The villa was lovely for the 3 of us. Our room boy Wayan was always there to make us breakie and service our villa. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he always was polite and always had a huge smile. The Villa has 2 brm, there was plenty of room for the 3 of us. Bedrooms were a/c which helped us to sleep at night.The bathrooms were a good size but the toilet water smelt a little. It was only a 15 min walk to central ubud which we seemed to have walked nearly everyday. There is a driver next door or also just up the road. Mendez Warung is just in front of the Villa and had meals there and our son had many lunches delivered to our villa. The are so many eating places in the street. Bayus Kitchen is great, small price but fantastic meals. Just up from Bayus is Eve's spa, for around $10 you can have a hour Balinese Massage, plus they offer more services. The girls are very strong and you feel great after one. They also have showers. The Bintang supermarket was about 15 min walk away so we got our supplies and then found a driver to take us home for about $3. This holiday has been special for us as it was hubby's 55th. This was our 4th visit to Ubud. I suggest if you want a quiet holiday to do whatever you want this is the place to be. Thank you again Steve and of course Wayan for looking after us. We will return again.
“Excellent value villa in a convenient location”
Villa Cantik is situated about 1.5km from the centre of Ubud and is surrounded by rice paddy fields, small shops and small restaurants. The villa is very peaceful and private, the plunge pool, outdoor living area, air-con bedrooms and TV/DVD player provide a very relaxing environment and coupled with the excellent serving staff and cleaners means your stay can be as easy as you want. This cosy villa has two double bedrooms with spacious en suite facilities. If you want an excellent value, clean and homely villa close to Ubud this is the place for you. I would highly recommend it and would stay here again.
