First, it was very clean---meaning that all the surfaces I saw and touched were actually clean in look and feel. (If you are a person with equally high cleanliness standards and have much experience with VRBO or its competitors, you likely know what I mean---at some properties, corners get cut, bits get missed. Not here!)
Second, as a first-timer in Bali, I was looking for a host who would help me get oriented and answer even dumb questions. These owners were not in town at the time of my stay, but I got incredibly helpful email assistance beforehand and during---not only did I get my questions answered, but I also was sent a lengthy and detailed set of spreadsheets and other documents with suggestions on things to do, including the owners' honest assessment of each business mentioned. Wow! They also arranged airport pickup at a reasonable price. Even the on-site manager was kind and friendly.
Third, furnishings and fixtures all were well-kept and well thought-out. The unit felt safe, it had a small but usable (and furnished) balcony with a view of some nice greenery before the house across the way, the A/C worked perfectly and quietly, there was a tiny wall-mounted safe for my passport, the dining table was good-sized and pretty to boot, the bed was very comfortable, the kitchenette was surprisingly well equipped (colander, more than one pot, plenty of utensils, double-burner propane cooker, dispenser of free bottled water), and the bath had lots of hooks and even a storage shelf. Best of all, everything I tried in the kitchen and bath worked and felt sturdy. No wobbles or tricky bits.
Good location too, only a couple minutes of walking to a greengrocer and only a few blocks from the main street, where all else I needed could be found.
Yes, there was some courtyard noise from other folks staying in the complex. And I suppose I would have preferred actual screening in the front window, but it had glass louvers and a miniblind that seemed just fine at keeping biting bugs out.
Like I mentioned in the beginning, I've certainly stayed at fancier, bigger, and pricier VRBOs. But I've never stayed in any that were better at delivering everything promised for a small price. This is a budget VRBO run with integrity and care, and I'm delighted to recommend it.
