The villa is contemporary and spacious, very well kept, immaculately clean and tidy. We did feel that some of the worktop kitchen appliances were unused and not necessary for the British holidaymaker. A toaster would have been great, but we used the grill in the oven. Valia and her family are lovely and friendly and we felt we could ask them anything we needed to know. Valia even brought us some cakes a few days in to our holiday. A car is essential but only a short drive into Bali where there are many restaurants and tourist shops
