Is this Air BNB in Seminyak or Kuta?

I am looking at a villa that describes the location as "Seminyak" however the detailed description says "Kuta Utara", "situated off Jalan Laksmana. I have been told not to stay in Kuta due to the young party scene (we are older than that!) but we like to be able to walk to restaurants, shops & beach.

Can anyone clarify what type of area this sounds like? Thanks!

Hi If the description say's off Jl Laksmana then yes it is Seminyak. Areas as far north as Canggu can be described as Kuta - North Kuta. I would however get the exact address from the owner / manager and do an 'Instant Street View' on google to 'walk around' the area to check, villas can advertise rather misleading locations,

Seminyak begins at Jl Arjuna ( Double Six) and Jalan Laksmana is well and truly in Seminyak.

Hi tina,

it would be far easier if you actually posted the link then people could give more detailed info.

e.g. Not just on the property itself but actual location, what's nearby etc.

You have to understand the 'Kuta Utara' can include a vast area north of Seminyak including Kerobokan and over 3 miles inland.

I've seen people on Air BnB quoting near 'Jalan Laksmana' despite being 2-3miles away inland.

Kuta Utara, means Norrth Kuta so it is north of Kuta. Being told not to stay in Kuta is crap, the club scene is a very very small area of Kuta and Bali, the rest is no different to Legian etc.

Hi, we stayed in roughly the same area last year and it was fine. As Alports says, get an address first then do a Google search and street view. Unless you are sighted next to a club lol, and they don't usually build that way i'm sure you will be fine. Its a great area.

I agree with Greg. I like Kuta and I am old and not interested in the party scene. In fact, I have never ever seen any party scene, probably because I'm well and truly asleep before anything unpleasant might happen.

Hi tina,

As said previous it is far better if you also give the actual property link. There are a number of Gang Damai around Seminyak.

Also some roads actually have 2 names. Kayu Aya also referred to as Laksamana.

A gang is a very narrow street often not wide enough for a car. Can also be quite dark at night

There are a few villas down "gang Damai" includes Crystal /Avani/Damai. Can be 250m walk down the lane
