Coconut Villa, it's hosts Bill and Maureen and dedicated staff DeDe lived up to all our expectations based on previous reviews and more! The location is PERFECT, although Hardy's has seen better days (hopefully a new company takes over soon) with many great restaurants around the area....we loved Downtown, The Porch and Coconut Warung. Sanur is the perfect destination for those wanting to experience a relaxed, more genuine experience of Bali, don't expect Kuta madness! The villa itself is exactly as described, the bedrooms and bathrooms are HUGE and the beds are super comfortable! (not always the case in southeast asia!) Having drinking water supplied is a huge bonus, as is the welcome pack on arrival. The living space is not air-conditioned, I thought this would be an issue for me but it was in fact the opposite! The ceiling fans and other fan provided do the job perfectly and of course the bedrooms are air-conditioned for a comfortable sleep. Don't forget the pool! Such a great pool being in shade most of the day it meant it stayed a little cooler and actually provided relief unlike some pools that resemble a bowl of soup! I could go on and on but I guess the point is we loved it....it felt like home but still a holiday. Couldn't have asked for more. We will be back!
My husband, myself and our 2 children aged 10 & 5 stayed here for 5 nights in August....what a wonderful place!!!
When we arrived Bill and Maureen were there to greet us with a starter pack in our fridge (cold beers were especially appreciated!!) Bill was always there to help via email or mobile. Excellent service!!!! Bill was there to help with our bags when we arrived and when we were leaving!!
The villa was more than we expected...very clean and had everything we needed. The maid, Dede was a lovely lady who we all loved!!!! Even met up with her up the street and bought from her shop! She did a great job of cleaning our villa which I LOVED for a relaxing holiday!
What can I say about location......well we were only a short walk from the main street...supermarket right there with all the restuarants! Not far from the beach either!! Most of all just across the alleyway ...3 steps...is a warung serving excellent food right to your table!!!! Just up from the villa is a place to hire scooters for $5 a day and just a few more steps is an excellent spa for your messages!!!!
Highly recommend Coconut Villa!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for a great holiday Bill & Maureen!! We will be back!!!! xx
Our family of 4 have stayed at Coconut and Papaya (next door) about 10 times. We love Coconut villa for it's charm with beautiful palm and frangipani garden and quirky art pieces/furniture.
Bill and Maureen are the perfect hosts and respond to issues immediately.
The villa is so well located in behind Hardys, only about 150m to the main road down a lit laneway.
Small warung opposite (quiet) for meals if you don't feel like venturing out.
Lovely clean pool and fantastic maid service from Dede.
Thanks again! Had a wonderful time!
We spent 4 nights at Coconut Villa and can't wait to return. The home is perfect for families, and our kids, age 6 and 2, loved having their own swimming pool. The home came with everything you would need for holiday, and the bedrooms were well appointed, and offered plenty of space for everyone. Bu Didi, the housekeeper, came daily to tidy up and was such a kind woman. We didn't end up cooking while we were there, thanks to the tasty warung directly across the street- there it was easy to get great breakfasts, fresh juices, and a cold beer. The home is about a 5 minute walk to the main road and Hardy's grocery; we rented bikes to see more of Sanur and get around to restaurants and try other beaches. Bill and Maureen were available when we had questions, but otherwise, you're left to yourself to enjoy Sanur. For the space, location and furnishings, I thought Cocount Villa offered incredible value for money, and we cannot wait for our 2nd visit!
Bill and Maureen were amazing, so very warm and welcoming. They are not just the owners but are like hosts for the duration of your stay. Nothing seemed like it was too much trouble, anything you needed you could just call them.
The villa is very well equipped, with the welcome pack being a wonderful addition to commence your stay. A short walk to Hardy's for anything else you need, if the short walk seems too far, the lovely boys across the lane in the warung, had delicious food at an amazing price.
The daily servicing of the villa by Dede was a joy, we actually looked forward to her morning visits. She is such a warm hearted and bubbly person, genuinely interested in making your holiday as enjoyable as possible, again nothing was too much trouble, even going to the post office for us.
The pool in the centre of the property, shaded by a huge palm and a gorgeous frangipani tree, was the highlight. Nothing beats being able to cool off from the heat and humidity by floating around in your own private pool with a cold beverage. The aircon in the bedrooms enabled an easy restful sleep at night.
The only Negative.....we had to leave!!!!
