There are many Bali villas to choose from, and right now you're probably scouring the Internet comparing options. Let me give you three reasons why you need scavenge no longer -- this is THE place for you:
1. Ketut and Komang. These two are your onsite staff, and the most integral part of your vacation's success. Ketut is your driver. He zipped us all around the island, provided perfect restaurant / beach / adventure recommendations, and kept us safe. Komang is your cook / cleaner. She prepared better food than we ate at any restaurant, and ensured we were always comfortable. An example... Komang overheard us saying our five year-old's birthday was a week away, and so on our last night she baked him a cake from scratch (without us even asking). Not only that, because mango was his favorite food, she found a way to pulverize ripe mango and whip it into the batter. Amazing. Our son was THRILLED.
They are the warmest, most genuine people I have ever met in my global travels -- and they are leagues better than the staff at other villas (based on other travelers we met and befriended in Bali). The Villa Humlebjerg guest book at the property is packed with dozens of reviews and every one praises Ketut and Komang -- do not underestimate the importance of great staff in making your vacation a success.
2. The property itself. Four huge bedrooms in immaculate condition. The master bedroom is enormous with a great soaker tub. The pool is pristine and temperate. And importantly, there are common areas inside where your family can gather at night. While there are fewer mosquitos here than we encountered across the rest of Bali (altitude and breeze are good defenses), it's great to be able to tuck in without having to disperse to bedrooms.
3. The location. You can't walk to a beach, but with Ketut at the wheel you are 20 minutes to Padang Padang, 25 minutes to Nusa Dua, 30 minutes to Seminyak, etc. So, rather than being stuck with one option, you can get anywhere you want quickly and safely. And FWIW, let Ketut take you on a day trip to the Kintamani volcano, the coffee plantations and the monkey forest -- what a great adventure.
We can't thank Villa Humlebjerg enough -- our trip memories will last a lifetime. Ulla (the owner) is responsive and helpful. The property is perfect. And Ketut and Komang and family are remarkable people; the best there is. Thank you all.
