“Seriously, no need to leave Casaviva. Everything you need is her” Stayed for 9 days in april 2012 and loved it.
Gede, our butler, was there for everything we needed and went out of his way to make our stay a pleasure.
Location is a little difficult to find but if you follow the instructions given by the owner you will have no issues.
As the location is very secluded, there is no need to leave. We ordered food all the time through Gede and paid the cost price plus 25% which is very reasonable when most meals were about 6-10 USD per person. This also included beer. We also ordered 3 cases of australian Semillon Sauvignon Blanc through the villa which was very reasonable considering the cost of wine in Bali.
There isn't a lot to do in Pecatu (pronounced Pe-cha-tu) but it is close by to Dreamland beach, Padang Padang Beach and Uluwatu beach and temple so you can either organise a driver, taxi or motorbike for your stay and explore as you need.
Really enjoyable, would come back again.
Thanks Indra and Gede.
“Absolutely amazing - we'll definitely be back” We stayed at John's beautiful Villa for 10 days in early July 2013 with our 10 month old and my parents. I was a tiny bit skeptical before we arrived as it just looked too good to be true for the price, especially with Made available to drive you each day. It was as good, if not better, than the reviews and pictures portray.
The villa is down a quiet little lane away from the insane traffic and noise that seems to affect most of the Bukit peninsula these days. It was a quiet, hidden sanctuary and the most beautiful and calm place to relax and unwind. The villa is really well appointed with everything you need (except internet though mobile 3G reception was fine) and the pool and multiple pavilions/chill out areas just fantastic.
Made the driver is great and so amenable. Having him on hand to take you to a nearby restaurant/beach/supermarket etc was the perfect balance to being in such a quiet and out of the way spot.
John the owner was fantastic to deal with in the lead up to our stay providing plenty of really helpful information about Bali and our upcoming stay.
We had one of the best holidays we've ever had and will most definitely be going back again. I can't recommend it enough. Enjoy!
