More Affordable, More Space and Facilities - Villa accommodation is generally a more affordable option in comparison to staying in a hotel room of the same calibre. You also have the added incentive of enjoying facilities such as your own private swimming pool and tropical garden that you don't have to share with others. There is plenty of lounge space to sunbathe unexposed around the pool without having to feel shy or inhibited.
Truly Balinese Experience - Staying in a villa as opposed to a hotel is a great chance to experience the community spirit by being encompassed within a traditional Balinese neighborhood. You will gain first hand knowledge about the island's cultural way of life where the passage of time is measured by an endless cycle of ceremonial rites.

Unidentified visitors are immediately recognized as strangers to the area and their actions are closely monitored. This ensures greater peace of mind throughout the entire duration of your stay. You will be accepted as an honoured guest within a close-knit Balinese environment.
Why Choose to Engage the Services of a Rental Agent?

However, you will find that a reputable agent will have access to an extensive selection of villa rental options in their portfolio.

This is opposed to dealing with a broker who only has seen photographic images of the property.
Objective Opinion - By engaging the services of a rental agent you will receive an objective opinion of the villa and the condition that it is in. Often a Villa Owner or Villa Manager will tend to over exaggerate and gloss over some of the fine details that may affect your stay. The term 'intimate' may translate as a villa that is very small and 'quaint' could mean that the property in need of a long overdue renovation.
Impartial Intermediary - Additionally, a rental agent is a trusted third party that is responsible for creating mutually beneficial circumstances for the holiday maker and villa owner. In the event that there is a problem with the villa, the rental agent will act as an impartial intermediary to avoid unwarranted threats and legal disputes.

How to Choose a Reputable Rental Agent?
Legally Registered - It is important to choose a legally registered rental agent to ensure that booking a villa in Bali is a hassle free experience. This can be verified by taking a close look at their website credentials as well as contact details in Bali including a permanent address and telephone number. A reputable rental agent should have endorsement from a related business association.
Credit Card Payments - Additionally, a bonafide agent will accept credit card payments, which reflects that they are a licensed company with recognition from a bank or other financial institution. If you choose to make payment on your prospective villa rental via bank transfer, make sure that the name of the account corresponds to the company that you are dealing with. If the company and bank account names differ, investigate the reason why before committing to the transfer if details and circumstances appear suspicious. Do not accept an unjustifiable excuse as this indicates an unprofessional approach to business.
Pricing - It is cause for concern if a rental agent suddenly offers you a much lower rate for a villa as opposed to other agencies. Reputable rental agents always honour their contract agreements with villa owners and management companies. Slight price variations in prices are common; however, a binding legal agreement regulates fair competitive pricing within the market.
