About Bernard and Jane Hudepohl
We were both born in The Hague in the Netherlands and love travelling. In 1991 we started a trip around the world and fell in love with Bali. We returned several times but after having children mainly had Europe as holiday destination. When we went back to Bali with the family in 2008 we found the perfect place to build our future home in paradise.
Bernard and Jane Hudepohl purchased this villa in 2008
Why Bernard and Jane Hudepohl chose Pemuteran
When we went back to Bali in 2008, it was a bit of a shock how busy the south was. A lot had changed in 15 years. In Pemuteran we found the relaxed atmosphere that we loved and the conditions that we think will keep this place special for the future. The scenery around the bay is magnificent and for snorkeling and diving it is probably the best spot in Bali. The people are special and the community is very much involved in protecting the area. It is a privilege to be there.
What makes this villa unique
A friend that stayed with us mentioned that the villa is a destination by itself. He felt so relaxed and just liked being there, enjoying the scenery and listening to the waves. The garden is very large compared to most villas in Bali, giving it a sense of space. The style is traditional and there are many large trees, giving the impression that the house belongs there. Add to the experience a friendly staff that takes care of all your needs and a private boat to explore the area, go fishing and watch the sunset.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We quite literally just returned from Bali and the Villa Semadhi yesterday - we booked our return next year before we even left. What can I say - bidding everyone at the Villa a fond farewell was rather difficult and I do say we shed a few tears. We spent 15 days at the Villa, it was everything we had expected and MORE ---- way way more. It was decided that we wanted to stay away from the south side but feared everything would be a "trek" but took the chance and went with it - we could not have been happier with our decision. Every day brought renewal to our souls, whether trekking through the rice terraces or doing absolutely nothing but reading and being a lounge lizard - there was never a moment that went by that we did not thoroughly enjoy.
We have stayed at a variety of different types of establishments but nothing compares to the hospitality and generosity the staff shared with us. Putra, the villa manager - was amazing - he never failed us and many times went beyond the call of duty to ensure our stay was comfortable - evening waking up at 5:30am personally, to take us on a hike to watch the sunrise (well - that got postponed due to the rain but STILL)! Jero is an amazing cook and she kept up with all the various request without ever blinking an eye and a smile on her face. The girls in the house - OUTSTANDING!!! We just fell in love with their bright cheery smiles and when one of my guest decided to get a little playful, they merrily played along with us. Made our "Drive Master" became a fast friend who we will miss dearly.
The villa was spacious and clean, beautifully decorated and you feel completely at home. I could just go on and on...but this is one experience you would not want to miss. We look forward to returning year after year.
