We have many guests return every year and we think "word of mouth" is the best advertising one can receive.

For any travellers,
I and 15 of my friends and family stayed in the Taylor's Jayakata apartments we had 6 all up this time. I can only say that this was my 4th trip to Bali and I have always stayed in hotels, this time i was going to be there for 3 weeks so I decided I needed more room, It was the best decision I could have made, The Taylor Apartments are simply lovely. They are well decked out, the pictures do not do them justice, they are roomy and comfortable, the staff are completely accommodating and even though I only arrived home a week ago I have already booked A Taylor unit for next trip. If you are thinking of booking but a little skeptical I have no problem with Suzanne giving you my email. I do not know Suzanne nor her husband however all the dealings I have had with her have been both friendly and helpful. You would not be sorry if you book with these people, to the point that my friends who I booked for bought me flowers for getting it so right.
Thank you for making our holiday the best it could be.

Our family of five (2 adults & 3 children
aged 11, 8 & 6yrs) traveled to Bali in July / August 2005 and stayed in a
private 2 bedroom apartment at the 'A' Residence of the Hotel Jayakarta. This
was organised for us by Andrew of bali.co.nz and it was FANTASTIC! The apartment
included a well equipped kitchen, dining area (with lovely teak table & 6
chairs), lounge (with TV / DVD), 2 bedrooms (with TV / DVD in the Master and a
TV in the second) and 2 bathrooms. The apartment was beautifully decorated and
being a private apartment had nicer than average furniture / dťcor and included
all those little Ďextrasí you donít get in a hotel room like a kids night light
in the bathroom and NZ adaptor plugs in the power sockets! Also the water cooler
in our room was kept full all the time so we didnít need to buy water. A private
cleaner came in daily and the apartment was kept absolutely spotless. The
apartments are located a short walk from the pool area however we didnít find
this to be a problem (actually this meant we were closer to the shops

Stayed in one of Suzanne's apartments last year. Three new, wonderful quiet air/conditioners in our two bedroom apartment.
Everything was new and in good condition. (plumbing was...Bali plumbing, ie. a bit slow) good DVD player, new sheets, bedding, etc.
I believe she has a few apartments, one and two-bedroom, some with interconnecting rooms.A bit further away from the pool than the hotel rooms,
but for the extra space, and great rates, as compared to what Flight Centre offered us for an apartment, was well worth it.Her manager/assistant in Bali
was also more than helpful with any advice we required. He also organised a great driver with a good car and so forth.Suzanne has the integrity
not to use this forum for advertising but if you need any help searching the archives for her details please contact me. She has her own
web-site, blog ....er...what-ever you call it.For newcomers to Bali, as to ensuring you have a nice stay, Suzanne and co.(in Bali)
from our experience, are worth their weight in gold.

Had a great time in Bali and really enjoyed staying at your apartment.
Hopefully I may have generated some business for you as a number of people we met at the Jayakarta were impressed by our
description of your apartment so I gave them your website and they said they would try and book through you. Hopefully they will
not book the same dates as we may want next year !!!Suandi and his sister were most helpful during our stay.

I just returned from & spent a few days at Jayakarta in a privately
owned one bedroom apartment which should sleep four. It was $65 per night
and has everything that opens & closes including fully equipped kitchen,
DVD player, beach towels & safe drinking water. Highly recommended.
The three pools & beach are a five minute walk from the apartments.
A big advantage of the apartments location is that you are near the main entrance & its so close & easy to duck out
to eat, shop etc. I think the sleeping arrangement other than the bedroom was a double sofa bed in the loungeroom
so if the teenagers are happy with that all well & good. The bathroom was accessible from both the bedroom and the
hallway so no-one gets disturbed should someone need a twinkle in the night. Alternately I believe they have a bigger apartment
which has an another bedroom but is a bit dearer.
I asked them many questions before making my decision and they are very pleasant to deal with & most helpful. Hope you find the right place.

My 3 children (aged 18, 17, and 10) and myself have just returned from a stay
at Jayakarta residences- It will be a perfect option for your childs ages.
We took a 2 bedroom apartment, though they do have one bedroom apts too!
Very large accomodation in a great location.
*2 bedrooms/ both carpeted and with adjoining balcony)
*lounge with leather couches/
*lovely kitchen- granite benches/ SS cooktop, micro, large fridge
*dining with large six seater table
* 3 SPLIT SYSTEM AIR CON UNITS
* 3 TVS AND 3 DVD PLAYERS (SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM IN LOUNGE)
* room service and full housekeeping daily
* approx 9 or 10 sq so very ample in space
I have stayed in many hotels in Bali- and found this a great haven with children, as I normally travel alone.
there is 2 lifts to the room that actually work!
When we stayed at Dynasty, this was not the case .
Will post JBR today regarding all the accommodation and experiences (Good and Bad)regarding our stay.
I have no negative comments regarding this accommodation as I find my children to be an excellent judge when it comes to crossing off our wish list- and they liked the privacy,space and comfort afforded to them here.
Here is the link- you will find very reasonable daily rates $ with them, and this has to be a bonus when travelling with children.
When I started pricing accommodation for us we found the eldest children to be classed as adults - therefore most hotels suggested 2 rooms as alot will not put 3 adults in one room - if that makes sense.
PS: we have a very good, extremely honest, inexpensive driver
that I have been using for 3 years-
His name is 'little Jonny' speaks excellent English
charges around 30$AUS a day and that is including anywhere on the island, and he also took us up to Lovina, stayed the night , then on to Amed, lowest price deal around, considering he knows all the shortcuts and the best routes so you can include many sites IE: monkey forest, volcano, snorkelling all in one day!
The children much prefer him, as the tour buses waste so much time driving around picking up everyone from their hotels.
His contact number is 081 79770737 (in Bali)
- or from Aust mobile( +62 81 79770737) you just drop the '0'
and add +62
"Have a great trip!"
