Our stay at Arjen's villa was lovely, relaxing and lot of fun for all!
Starting with the wonderful breakfast (yummy fresh cut fruit+yoghurt+muesli plates straight from the property gardens, with eggs, toast, preserves and a great cup of coffee) moving onto splashing about in the very pretty and clean pool and then walking around in the surrounding area - everything was great.
The villa is quite spacious with two bedrooms on the upper floor containing large, comfy beds and in-room air-conditioning. The lower floor has a large bathroom, basic kitchen facility and living room area with TV (cable) + an outdoors seating area too. So enough space for our family of 2 adults and 2 kids to have a fun stay. Also, Arjen's domestic staff clean out the villa daily. There's WiFi and Arjen got the laundry done for us as well which was a huge help as we needed clean clothing for the next leg of our trip.
The pool on the property is probably one of the best pools I found on Airbnb in the area, especially for a family with young kids. It is very pretty, very clean and has 4 separate depth step-levels graduating from ankle deep water to knee deep at the second level, shoulder deep at the third level and the last level being the deepest. Since our kids are basic swimmers - it took away a lot of our worry as we could limit them to the earlier 3 levels and they could still have a lot of fun splashing about safely.
Area wise - the villa is as central as you can get within Legian, being just off of Jalan Legian a bustling main street. The immensely popular 66 beach is an 8-10 min walk, shopping options are everywhere (closest supermarket is ~10 sec walk) and lots of local and international food options. Plus, you get a richer feel of the area if you live in a residential property like this rather than staying at one of the hotel properties located on the beach.
Arjen is a welcoming, gracious and accommodating host (as are his kind domestic staff) - helping us with all of our minor and not-so-minor requests. We relied on him greatly for most of our informational needs like identifying good warungs to eat local fare and where to go visiting in Bali with kids. He also helped us find an excellent car and driver for our trip out to Ubud and the surrounding areas. Thanks, Arjen, for all the help and advice!
Overall - we had a wonderful time at Villa 2 Arjuna and would be delighted to stay there again.
