“Paradise”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

How can I adequately describe Villa Baliku? We have been visiting the Ubud/Penestanan/Tjampuhan area of Bali for over thirty years and this was our fifth stay in Baliku. Villa Baliku is one of the first villas built by an Aussie expat, Steve, under the name "Private Ubud Villas". It is in an older Balinese style than his more recent villas, but, to us, that adds to its charm and comfort. With its collection of music, DVDs, books, daybed, swimming pool etc, it feels like a home away from home - with one huge extra - Gede (pronounced "g'day") the houseboy who has been looking after the villa and its guests for years. Nothing is too much trouble for Gede, who greets you every morning with a beaming smile, a lovely breakfast and as much information and assistance as you require.
Baliku's location is also superb. Vehicle access right to the door, just off the main street of Penestanan but back from any traffic noise and next door to Eve's Spa and the wonderful Bayu's Kitchen, which has fantastic food and great live music one or two nights a week.
Like many of Baliku's guests, we have already booked in for the same time next year so good luck getting in! Mind you, we have also stayed in several of Steve's other villas and have never been disappointed. In fact, we would happily spend our retirement moving from one of his villas to another. They all have their own, unique "feel" and are all beautifully appointed.
Enjoy your stay!

“Good Stay, nice Villa”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Myself and my wife stayed here for NYE 2013, there was a lot of condiments available including free drinking water and fruit. The rooms have Air conditioning and the beds are OK.

The pool is a good size.

It is a 30min walk to Ubud town or 5 mins via a scoter. There are eating places in walking distance especially a café over the road from the villa.

There is free wifi.

There are farm animals next door so don't expect a quite stay (Rosters in the morning) and one of our days there was a strong sewage smell (we put it down to where in Bali!)

This place is a good stay just out of Ubud town and is reasonably priced.

“Perfect stay close to Ubud”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed in Villa Cantik from September, 20th- September 25 th. Booking was easy and Steve Castley answered all mails within a day.

Pick-up from the airport went also smoothly and the best thing - without asking - the car was equipped with a child car seat for our 21 month old daughter. That is what I call perfect customer service!

The Villa itself is an Oasis - nice rooms, beautiful bathrooms and the most stunishing is the small garden wih the swimming pool!

The Villa is conveniently located with lots of nice reaturants/ cafés and Eve spa close by. Walking to Ubud is no problem (15 minutes walk - but the street is very narrow and traffic heavy) - and if you do not want to walk you will always get a taxi to Ubud for a reasonable price.

Wayan, who came to make breakfast every day and cleaned the house, was a very friendly and helpful person - same as all the other staff we met (driver etc).

The only downside was that Wifi was not working during our stay.

We loved Villa Cantik and we hope to be back some day!
