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!

Highlights

The villa was completely safe and kid-friendly.  Staying at a private estate gave us total peace of mind as parents of school-aged kids.  We had a comfortable amount of space and could always keep an eye on them in the pool, even from our bedroom or the living room.  Staff handled everything, so we had so much quality family time in and out of the villa, and actually relaxed on this holiday!

Surprises

This holiday taught us all how to embrace what we now call rainforest living, and I finally understand what it means to enjoy “barefoot luxury.”  One of the most fun and memorable parts of this trip was the rainy day, when we had to drop the bamboo blinds around our living area.  We were surprisingly content to play cards as a family and notice geckos coming into our sanctuary and frogs leaping about the grass.  Then we all retreated to watch TV in the bedrooms, but on the way there my indoor-type kids literally danced in the rain with pure joy.

Our family of five had a fantastic time staying at Avalon II, Andy and the staff were attentive, helpful, and discreet, and helped guide around our first time in Canggu. The villa itself was excellent, quiet, and a great location for relaxation. The staff were the highlight of our stay, and we would recommend Avalon II
