Horrible location. Definitely not worth the value paid for this Villa.

My family agreed that this villa spoil our holiday and impression of Bali. We will not go Bali again after this experience.
We booked 3 bedroom villa. Due to the open concept, these are what we spot some "visitors" in 2 toilets. On the first night, my brother spotted mouse in his bathroom. On my second day, I spotted mouse trap with a mouse in my bathroom. And on my second night, I spotted 2 geckos in my bathroom. One of the gecko is more than 6 inch long.
The pool is too deep for me and my mum. So we didn't enjoy the pool as my mum cannot swim well and I cannot swim as I am pregnant. The villa did provide us with a float for the pool, but the float is faulty and it inflate within an hour. When we complaint, the staff said there is only one float in the whole villa.
The sofa in the living room is very dirty and dusty. There are also many mosquitoes in the villa.
In order to access the villa, you have to go through a small alley which seems to be unsafe. In the end, wherever we go, we have to hire a cab. Through the villa provide free shuttle service around Seminyak, staff keep mentioning that there is no driver available whenever we travel out of villa. I am disappointed that the staff did not warn us on the limited availability of their vehicle beforehand, else we will had booked a full day Taxi Service instead.
Through the website mentioned that the villa is pretty near to the beach, because of the villa location and disappointing transport service provided by villa, we didn't manage to get near to any beach.
I do have to give thumbs up to the villa's staff. They are very helpful and friendly. But most of the time, we were asking the staff to catch mouse and geckos. A very tiring and disappointing holiday for my family. It is definitely not worth the value I paid on this villa. I should have booked those 3 bedroom hotel in Bali which is so much cheaper than this 3 bedroom pool villa.
