Kid Friendly Villas

Happy kids make for a happy holiday. These villas are packed with things for the kids to do or have plenty of attractions in the local area. Whether it is Wii or WiFi, pool (snooker) or pool (swimming), it's boards rather than bored. We can’t guarantee that every property is 100% ‘kid safe’, but we can guarantee that there will be plenty to keep them entertained.

Astika Toyaning

Astika Toyaning

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

In spite of the ‘high-design’ tendencies that characterise the simplicity and style of Astika Toyaning, we didn’t feel that it’s a look-but-don’t-touch kind of place. To the contrary, it’s very much the kind of space that finds you taking a deep breath and feeling like you’ve landed in the lap of peace and relaxation.  

The dining area, with its gorgeous wooden feasting table, just begs for long lunches followed by satiated snoozes followed by long dinners followed by satiated snoozes… you get the picture.  In fact, the use of wood throughout the villa adds beauty to the simplest of spaces and objects (who knew a bathroom basin could be such an object of lust and envy?) while the effective and dramatic use of red adds a certain modern glamour to the décor. Astika Toyaning’s 1600 square metres of space, give all guests plenty of breathing room, and when you add to this the proximity of water – the river, the pool, the water feature – you’ve got a villa tailor-made for the ultimate in relaxing holidays.

Villa Atas Ombak

Villa Atas Ombak

Indonesia » Bali » Greater Seminyak » Seminyak

We loved Villa Atas Ombak. It’s big – nay grand – and majestic with a location that just can’t be found for love nor money these days. On arrival, we had to pinch ourselves to make sure we weren’t dreaming. This is the kind of place where you really come to relax and do nothing. And when we say ‘do nothing’ we mean just that, especially with the beach being on the front doorstep.

In the competitive world of luxury rental villas, it is often the staff that really makes a difference, and at Villa Atas Ombak they are definitely ‘on the ball’. Before we even knew we were thirsty, the housekeeper was strolling out to the lawn to see what we wanted to drink.

Should you feel like exploring beyond the villa grounds (and believe us, you may not!) there is a handful of local restaurants just a few hundred metres up the beach which make for an unpretentious, casual lunch or sunset drinks – so casual you don’t even need to change out of your swimmers. We didn’t! For guests who like to jog or amble along the sand, the distance to Kuta is a good challenge (with a taxi back of course).

Auraliya

Auraliya

Sri Lanka » South Coast » Talpe

This is a fabulous villa. Standouts include the stunning sea views, gorgeous beach, expansive outside space and heartwarming team of staff, not to mention the great food. Everything about the villa is very family friendly and group orientated - the sky blue swimming pool with its shallow ledge; the huge garden with plenty of space for the kids to indulge in cricket or football; the interconnecting rooms; and the lovely beach with calm sea ideal for paddling.

We thought the staff were excellent; friendly, experienced and capable. The chef was particularly enthusiastic and his cooking was fabulous. He’ll even make snacks for kids such as jammy dodgers, an all-time favourite. He will also stock the kitchen with basic provisions prior to your arrival, and prepare your first two meals so that you can arrive relaxed and at ease. There’s a Nespresso coffee machine in the villa, but as you can’t buy the capsules in Sri Lanka, you’ll need to bring some with you. If we needed anything else, the staff shopped for us and they were able to arrange transport for us to visit attractions, restaurants and the fort at Galle.

Visiting in March 2013, three years after our original review, we were pleased to discover that the villa has the same lovely staff team and is as immaculately presented as before. Each master bedroom has its own mini fridge and the villa is also now equipped with a generator.

Avalon I

Avalon I

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

There are a lot of great things to say about this villa.  First, thank you wholeheartedly to the staff for the warm welcome and for graciously putting up with all our requests.  They made everything about this trip special for us and we’ll never forget it.  The owners obviously put a lot of careful thought and attention into the villa as well.  There are all kinds of interesting artefacts on display and plenty of travel guides and books on Asian interior design to digest.  The bedrooms were larger than expected, and the TV and DVD player were a big plus.

But the winning feature of Avalon has to be its location. It was a treat to find such a large – and affordable – villa so close to the beach in Canggu.  Being able to pop out to the beach without having to pack a day’s worth of stuff for the whole family was the most freeing holiday experience we’ve had in years.  We could essentially wake up and go straight down to the beach, and then bob back and forth between the beach and the villa as we pleased. It’s that close.

Staying on a dead-end road was also really special because it meant the beachfront was much quieter than other beaches where cars and motorbikes could go.  Walking through the La Laguna restaurant and crossing its wooden bridge to get to the ocean was a welcome detour (rather than sneaking by on the footpath beside it) and we spent plenty of time as patrons there, too.  You could easily watch the sunset there daily.  As big fans, we didn’t mind hearing their weekend DJ sets from the outside areas of our villa.  I would stay at Avalon again in a heartbeat.

Avalon II

Avalon II

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Hats off to the team at Avalon for delivering an amazing holiday experience for our family.  Thank you!  We were made to feel like VIPs with the most courteous care and would have gladly stayed forever in this fairytale setting by the sea.  We came for a beach experience, but this villa stole our hearts.  Its proximity to the beachfront was what led us to Avalon II, and the location is something special; but the charm of the villa is indescribable.

We’ve rented other vacation homes in Bali, but never opted for a villa with living areas quite so open to the elements.  I’m not the woodsy camping type.  Well, Avalon II’s open-sided living room is gorgeous in every way and suits a Bali holiday just fine.  One relatively small square space combines the modern with the traditional and the fab with the practical.  I was blown away by things like quick-drying patio furniture below a hand-carved wood ceiling and the grand woven basket which is lovely art and holds umbrellas at the ready in case of tropical showers.  The joglo accommodated our needs throughout all phases of each day, the same poolside patio and games room where the kids could drip with pool water also passing as a dining room in the evening complete with antique chandelier.

Initially hesitant about Avalon II’s the size and layout, now I think every two-bedroom villa should be just like this, with an outdoor living room by the swimming pool.  Again, it must be said that also behind the magic ambience and versatility of the villa are the staff who mop up, keep things sparkling and deliver meals like clockwork, which they do so discreetly and effortlessly.  We’re bragging about this trip to everyone we know in hopes they’ll join us for a short break before too long, and perhaps we can all stay in the main villa together for a group holiday.  With or without them, we’ll be back.  Don’t change anything!

Avalon III

Avalon III

Indonesia » Bali » Canggu area » Canggu

Staying at Avalon III exceeded all my expectations.  It is a small villa but has everything two people could ask for.  The exclusivity, privacy and location of this place make it my favourite one-bedroom villa in Canggu, and I would choose it again and again over any Bali five-star hotel with a front desk and fancy spa.  I recommend this villa to anyone, especially if you love the beach.

Who would have thought you could have your own little tropical beach house with a private pool for the price of a luxury hotel room?  We appreciated having air-conditioning in every room, and with glass doors looking onto the pool deck from the living room and bedroom, it still has a tropical jungle vibe, whether you are indoors or out by the pool.  Outside, there isn’t much of a yard, but there’s a table big enough for two to dine alfresco, and a set of wicker lounge chairs by the pool for sunning in total privacy.  At night, the pool lights up and you can gaze at the stars, so very easy to turn up the romance.

You can make your own meals, order groceries or room service, or get delivery from outside.  The villa staff were flexible and responsive to our requests.  We asked for maximum privacy, so they’d wait until we left to tidy everything brilliantly, and then they were always available outside the villa when we came back in the evening if we wanted anything.

Baan Bon Khao

Baan Bon Khao

Thailand » Phuket » Surin

Baan Bon Khao is one of the most welcoming villas we’ve stayed at, and we came away from our all-too-brief stay here feeling fully refreshed and restored.  With its spectacular sea and sunset views, friendly service and excellent Thai food beautifully presented, the villa is a truly inviting oasis.  Everything in the villa, from its majestic vaulted ceilings down to its polished wood floors, looks fresh and new, so we were surprised to learn that it is more than a decade old.  Having been a private residence for many years, the villa opened to guests for the first time after an extensive renovation in 2015.  It further benefits from having a full-time professional team on site, with the helpful villa manager as the main contact point.  The chef and housekeeping staff have limited English skills, but they’re keen to please, and we were impressed especially with the meal service, presented and served in such a way that it felt like an event, even for our casual breakfast on the pool terrace.

We also loved the Northern Thailand roof design, which really adds some grandeur to the open tropical look of the villa. Our camera’s memory card quickly filled up one evening as we tried to capture the silhouette of the pavilions at all angles against a blazing sunset sky reflected in the infinity-edge pool – one of those unforgettable sights that Instagram was created for! Being in an estate limits the sense of total privacy here, though the villas are arranged carefully to ensure none intrude upon one another. The villa’s lofty position still makes it a tranquil and secluded escape, even though it has to share the hill with neighbours.

Baan Paa Talee Estate

Baan Paa Talee Estate

Thailand » Phuket » Kamala

We've seen some villas in our time, but Baan Paa Talee Estate took our breath away.  The quality and scale of the villa; the wild beauty of its surroundings; the vast ocean panoramas from almost every room; the warm welcome from the exceptional staff and the creativity of the villa's skilled chef are all in a class of their own.  We were particularly happy to learn all about the villa and the surrounding area from the villa’s knowledgeable, guest-relations manager, who made our stay even more special.

Although Baan Paa Talee is spread across four levels of accommodation, we found ourselves drawn to two special spots: the reception lounge on the 'top deck' - so beautiful at sunset – was the obvious choice for evening cocktails before moving into the glass-enshrined dining room for another memorable dinner; and the whole pool area, which worked brilliantly with its options for lazing, swimming, soaking in the jacuzzi, enjoying a game of pool in the bar area, or cooling off in the media room with a favourite movie.

The bedrooms are really well arranged, offering total privacy if you want it (especially in the Ocean Villa), or flexibility for families in adjoining suites.  All are beautifully fitted and furnished and very comfortable.  Our stay was perfect and we can only hope we get a chance to return.
