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.

Highlights

Nothing complements sultry weather quite like cool water, and that’s why swims in the ocean and the pool were the highlights of our Bali holiday.  What we loved most at Avalon was having our own private pool to slip into anytime of day or night. It was really convenient, refreshing and beautiful.

Surprises

No real complaints from any of us!  I wish we had coordinated our F&B requirements in advance because although there is a stocked kitchen, the staff had to go buy beverages after we arrived. Luckily, the supermarket is nearby.  Also, there was no espresso machine in the kitchen, so the staff had a latté delivered for me each morning.  The importance of communication with staff cannot be overstated.  Once we enlightened them about our plans and desires, everything was perfect.

We love the botanical gardens, quite a drive but lovely cool air for a walk in the shady trees and great high wires for all ages and abilities. Had an epic day trip to Borobudur - internal flight about 1 hour. Java has a different feel - but also beautiful like Bali. Did a morning cooking lesson with a visit to the market - very colorful and wonderful to see the work that goes into making the delicious food.

We arrived in Bali at night, after a long flight and drove to Canggu in heavy traffic. We traveled down a rough road, turn the corner and the magic happened. The villa was stunning even at 03.00am and the welcome warm. The villa exceeded our expectations. It has so much character, space and attention to detail. The garden is lovely. For us, it was a family reunion with our two sons and their families, from Sydney, Australia and Wales (UK). It was a perfect relaxing time watching our grandchildren play in the pool. No words can express our appreciation of the kindness and helpfulness of Andy and all his staff. Nothing was too much trouble, organising trips, meals and taxis. Thank you so much to everyone for wonderful memories. We wish you all happy lives and good luck in the future.

To Andy and your amazing crew. We have brought our family to you at AVALON to celebrate our sons wedding. You have spoilt us and we have felt so welcome. Nothing has been too much trouble. From delicious breakfast and lunches and dinners to soirees where 20 odd people have turned up on your doorstep, you have bent over backwards to look after us. The after party was a real success because of your attention to detail. We will not forget your smiles. THANK YOU.

Thank you Andy, Gede, Dina, Putu, Wayan, Nengah and team for being such wonderful hosts. Your patiently, thoughtfully attending to all our needs. No request was a problem - from booking restaurants, tours, massages, & even ART Sales! Thank you.
