Thank you so much for your beautiful review. From the beginning of organising the party for your husband's birthday to the day you left our villa, it was a complete pleasure dealing with you and your wonderful group of family and friends. We did our best to make sure your stay and the party went off without a hitch. Even the beautiful Balinese dancers danced on during the rain, undeterred by the weather! I, my husband and all the "crew" here at Villa Puri Purnama are looking forward to having you come to stay with us again. Once again, thank you for the lovely review.

It was a total pleasure having this lovely family stay at Villa Puri Purnama. All of the staff and my husband and I really enjoyed looking after these delightful people. The family certainly made the most of the villa and the surrounding area, exploring the village life, the fishing village nearby, the local beaches (swimming and surfing beaches), the local food and all that the beautiful East Coast of Bali has to offer. We are really looking forward to having this family stay with us again and it was sad to say 'goodbye' to them when they returned home. Best wishes from all of us to you and your family. Paula, Isa, and all 'the crew' at Villa Puri Purnama.

Thank you for your lovely review. We are certainly looking forward to having your son and his friends stay at our villa and enjoy the surfing which is only 100m from the villa. The beds are very comfortable and welcoming and I know how important that is after a long flight, in particular. Yes, the food at the villa is nothing short of delicious. We have two wonderful Balinese cooks. I know that Dewa, our driver and 'tour guide' took you on some really interesting outings. He is an expert on where to go and what to do. All of our guests who have had our Dewa as a driver have thought him to be pretty special, as we do. We are looking forward to your possibly coming again next year, when your calendar suits your travel plans. Thank you again for staying at Villa Puri Purnama and thank you again for your beautiful review. We hope to see you both soon. Warmest regards from us all at Villa Puri Purnama in Bali. Paula and 'all the crew'.

Cojojo, it was our gift to have you stay at Swallow Guesthouse during the rainy season. You brought a ray of warmth into each day.

Be well this winter back in Canada. And bring your mom next time!! Hugs from Bali

It is truly regrettable that his unfortunate incident resulted in a personal loss and has negatively affected someone’s dream vacation. It impacts us as well as it unduly affects the reputation we have worked so hard to achieve. However, the police investigation concluded the guest had been negligent in basic safety precautions and as a result created an opportunity for some likely suspects. According to UbudWatch, this area remains the safest in and around Ubud.
Yes, this is the first incident we’ve experienced however, in this case, the guest did not properly lock her door, left her laptop out in plain sight visible through the large glass doors and windows, and as she admits, where “people could easily look in”. Had the doors been properly locked, or the laptop left out of site, or the drapes closed, or the main doors locked, this incident most surely would not have occurred.
Despite leaving the property unlocked and as she admits, noticing construction workers milling about in the dark unlit parking area, she did not think to reassess safety conditions or to report any concerns which we would have addressed. However we do sympathize and can understand the security lapse as she was grieving through a personal family tragedy, was physically and emotionally exhausted, had overslept, was late and in a rush for her scheduled supper, which she attended for 3 ½ hours while her unit was left unsecure.
Immediately upon the call of the break-in, we rushed over to assist. Feeling uncomfortable in staying there alone, the guest was invited back to Anita’s Cottage. She shared Anita’s bed while I stayed at the villa without incident. The next day, we accompanied the guest to the police. An investigation was conducted by 6 officers at the villa and a report was filed. The presumption was that it was probably the work of nearby transient constructions workers.
In fairness, this property has been fully vacant and accessible by the public many times, day and night, and not once have we had an incident, even with the drapes open. Where the daily wage is $6, valuable electronics left out of plain view are an irresistible temptation for some. Though some guests take liberties with safety, we always advise those that need to be told, that basic measures will prove to be sufficient deterrents.
As for refund, the booking was made October 13, 2014 and the reservation has been maintained in accordance with the Flipkey cancelation policy, fully disclosed. Since the booking, the villa would not have been available to anyone else.
Yes the street lights were out due to a storm and fallen trees, but this was an overnight problem and beyond our control. In fact we had actually warned the power company of this potential. When booking a vacation in the middle of rainy season in rice terrace country, some garbage will invariably end up on the streets However we believe the claim to be exaggerated. The issue has never raised by other guests and it should not be reflection on Anita’s.
It is our hope that any travelers considering Anita’s Rice Field Villa will not be deterred by this regrettable one time incident and instead come to experience this most splendid scenery and spectacular location, and of course Anita’s charm and hospitality.
